How much does Disney Plus cost? Launched in 2019, Disney Plus is Mickey Mouse’s preferred streaming service. OK, we don’t know that for sure, but we do know that Disney Plus is the only streamer that’s completely dedicated to content from the House of Mouse.
Boasting a reported 7,000 television episodes and 500 films, the platform offers content hubs for all your favourite brands including Disney movies, the MCU, Star Wars, Pixar movies, National Geographic, and – here in the UK as well as a few other lucky territories – the Star channel. Star offers access to a lot of old Fox Studios film and TV series including FX, 20th Television, 20th Television Animation, 20th Century Studios, and Searchlight Pictures among others.

At present there is no news on an ad-supported package for Disney Plus subscribers in the UK, but we assume some changes will come to British shores before too long. So, don’t be surprised to see prices go up, and adverts introduced in the future.
Does Disney Plus offer a free trial?
Unfortunately not. When Disney Plus initially launched in the UK and US Disney were offering a seven day free trial for new members but that’s a thing of the past.
Disney removed the free trial option back in 2020 around the time Hamilton arrived on the platform. In an interview with Variety from the time a House of Mouse representative explained this decision.

“We continue to test and evaluate different marketing, offers and promotions to grow Disney Plus,” they said. “The service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own.”
