Ditching Netflix for a Disney+ subscription could be the easiest way to cut your monthly bills, thanks to an incredible new streaming offer from the House of Mouse. Yes, there really has never been a better time to subscribe to Disney+.

The Netflix and Prime Video rival has slashed a colossal 75% off the cost of its monthly subscription plan – dropping it from the usual £7.99 per month to just £1.99. For that, you’ll be able to access everything on Disney Plus in up to 4K Ultra HD picture quality with HDR and Dolby Atmos, download shows and films to watch offline, and stream on up to 4x devices simultaneously!

Start streaming on Disney Plus for £1.99 now!

Act now, and you’ll be able to secure this discounted price for the next three months, so you won’t need to think about paying more than £1.99 for Disney Plus until a few weeks from Christmas. The price crash down to £1.99 equals the lowest-ever subscription fee we’ve seen from the popular streamer …unless you count the (now canned) Disney Plus free trial.

The £1.99 subscription fee is only available until 11.59pm on Wednesday (September 20, 2023).

For the same picture quality and features on Netflix, you’d need to pay £15.99 each month 

This unmissable £1.99 deal isn’t only available for new customers. Yes, even if you’ve previously held a Disney Plus subscription but decided to take a break – you’ll also be able to take advantage of the incredibly low price to rejoin.

In comparison, Netflix charges £4.99 per month for its cheapest streaming plan – and that doesn’t offer access to the full catalogue of boxsets and movies, is limited to 1080p HD picture quality, and has advert breaks. For a comparable experience to Disney+ with the ability to watch on four devices simultaneously and in 4K Ultra HD picture quality on Netflix, you’d need to spend £15.99.

But there’s one more detail that makes this Disney+ subscription offer such an incredible deal …and that’s the timing.

Yes, Disney has already confirmed plans to shake up the pricing of its subscriptions from November 1, 2023 in the UK. It’s switching from a single one-size-fits-all approach to three subscription plans at different price points.

There are…

  • Disney+ Standard with Ads | £4.99
  • Disney+ Standard | £7.99 per month, or £79.90 annually
  • Disney+ Premium | £10.99 per month, or £109.90 annually

Those who want to keep all of the same features included with the current £7.99 per month plan – like the ability to watch in 4K Ultra HD with HDR and Dolby Atmos support and across four devices simultaneously – will need to move to Disney+ Premium.

That’s a price rise of £30 for the annual plan. Ouch.

If you choose to stick with the £7.99 per month plan, you’ll be limited to 1080p High Definition (HD) resolution with Stereo Sound or 5.1 Surround Sound, not Dolby Atmos.

With this dramatic shake-up looming on the horizon, getting access to three months of Disney+ for under the cost of a single £7.99 fee is an incredible deal. Easily one of the best Disney Plus deals we’ve come across.

For less than £2, you’ll be able to stream every entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the latest entries like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Not only that, you can also watch the complete Star Wars saga, including exclusive new shows like Ahsoka, The Mandalorian and Obi-wan Kenobi, set within George Lucas’ epic universe.

There’s also a dizzying number of films from Pixar, from classics like Toy Story and Monsters Inc to more recent releases, like Lightyear, Soul, and Turning Red.

Of course, the Walt Disney brand is synonymous with its iconic hand-drawn classics like The Jungle Book, Dumbo, and Sleeping Beauty – and these are all present and correct in the Disney Plus catalogue.

Disney+ has an eclectic library, packed with everything from its blockbuster remake of The Little Mermaid to the hotly-anticipated second season of Welcome To Wrexham 

Also available to stream are the recent remakes of these classics, including the 2023 reimagining of The Little Mermaid, which is available to stream from September 6, 2023. The rebooted Mulan, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and many more are available to watch on-demand alongside recent animation, like Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Encanto, and Tangled, to name just a few.

Disney Plus is also packed with content from National Geographic and Star, which might not quite be the sort of thing you’d associate with the House of Mouse. That includes award-winning documentaries like The Rescue and Free Solo, as well as binge-worthy boxsets like The Bear, The Kardashians, Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, Only Murders In The Building, Family Guy, and films like The Banshees of Inisherin, The Menu, Avatar: The Way Of Water, Fresh, Prey, Barbarian, amongst hundreds more.

Disney+ has apps on a dizzying number of platforms, including iPhone, Android, Sky Glass, Sky Stream, Sky Q, Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast with Google TV, Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox, and PlayStation, to name just a few. Parental controls are available to all customers, so profiles for younger viewers can be restricted to only include age-appropriate TV shows and films. PINs can be used to prevent family members from bypassing the blocks on their own profiles.

In the coming months, Disney Plus subscribers will be able to watch Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, the second series of Ryan Reynolds’ football documentary series Welcome To Wrexham, a fourth instalment of The Kardashians, drama series The Other Black Girl, and the second season of Marvel spin-off show Loki.
