After months of anticipation, Disney Plus is finally here. If you missed the big news about this streaming service, Disney Plus is breaking the vault wide open, allowing you to watch everything from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” to “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” to “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” to “The Simpsons.”
There will also be new TV series created especially for the streaming service like “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” along with National Geographic, Marvel and Pixar programming.
Now, you can access “Disney Plus” on a month-by-month basis for $6.99, or you can save big by opting to bundle Disney Plus with your other favorite streamers.
For example, right now, you can bundle Disney Plus with Hulu and ESPN Plus for just $12.99 a month. This means you will have access to all of ESPN Plus’ sports programming and special events, along with Hulu’s vast catalog of shows.
The Disney Plus bundle version comes with the base Hulu plan, which is ad-supported (meaning you will have to watch some commercials while you binge your favorites). The base ad-supported Hulu plan is $5.99 a month, while ESPN Plus is $4.99 a month, so bundling these three services together would be a wise move if you have sports-lovers and Disney-lovers in your house.
If you don’t want to bundle, you can still save a little money by opting for the Disney Plus yearly membership as opposed to the month-by-month membership.
The month-by-month membership is $6.99 a month (after a seven-day free trial), and the yearly membership is $69.99 a year. So you will save $1.16 a month, or a total of $13.89 for the year, by committing to a year of Disney Plus.
And let’s face it, with the thousands of awesome shows Disney has to offer, it’s going to take you at least a year to work through rewatching all of your old favorites, while also introducing the younger generation to forgotten classics like “The Three Caballeros.”
