Most people are juggling so many streaming services nowadays that it's no wonder folks are looking for the best Disney+ prices to make sure they're saving money whenever possible. Luckily, Disney+ is one of the more affordable options, and with deals like the Disney bundle (which includes Hulu and ESPN+) and offerings from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and Disney itself, you can hopefully begin to consolidate your services, save money, and still find everything you want to watch.

Although the Disney+ library may not unseat Netflix as the most popular streaming service just yet, a variety of original TV series and movies are already streaming, and there are plans for at least 10 Marvel and 10 Star Wars series to hit the platform over the next few years.

Sure, all of that sounds great, but how much does Disney+ cost? Thankfully, Disney+ has several different plan options, with fees ranging from $7.99 to $19.99 per month. You can also sign up for an annual plan to save a little extra, or take advantage of the Disney Bundle, a package deal that also comes with Hulu and ESPN+. 

Let's take a second to break down the current offers and then get into the details about Disney+ — including where it's available, how the prices compare to other services, and more.

Disney+

Catch your favorite Disney films along with great shows from Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Fox, in addition to stellar new shows like The Mandalorian and Loki. The service has come a long way since its launch and is a steal at this low monthly price.

Disney+ started rolling out a series of subscription increases in global markets in mid-February 2021. Disney announced the price increase as it began rolling out the new Star section of the app in countries where Hulu is not available, as well as paying for the insane amount of content slated for the next three years from Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, and more.

The Star brand page on Disney+ is currently accessible to subscribers in Australia, Austria, Canada, Europe, Germany, Italy, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Specifically, the Star brand library consists of movies and TV shows from Disney Television Studios, FX Productions, 20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures. Highlights include Grey's Anatomy, 24, and The X-Files, as well as brand new originals such as Love, Victor, and Solar Opposites.

The Disney+ and Star services are expected to launch in Andorra, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, and Turkey through Summer 2022.

Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ bundle explained

Disney+ currently offers one bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu for just $13.99 a month. That's right; you can access all the content from all three platforms for less than the Standard Netflix plan. By bundling the three services together, you end up saving about $8 per month, which is like getting Disney+ for free if you were paying for the other two separately.

So what does $14 a month get you? To start, you get unlimited access to Disney+ and its library of more than 7,500 episodes and over 600 films from Disney, 20th Century Studios, Marvel, National Geographic, and Star Wars. In addition, you'll be able to access nearly 50,000 different titles from Hulu and watch all the sports your heart desires on ESPN+. ESPN+ has exclusive UFC fights, NCAA football, baseball, basketball, and professional NHL, MLB, NFL, and more.

The Hulu plan included is the ad-supported one, but you can also upgrade to Hulu (No Ads) or Hulu + Live TV. Your savings aren't higher just for getting a more expensive bundle — it's just under $6 savings at every level — but it does allow you to build a bundle that fits you and your family. If you want to have Live TV so that it's easier for you to watch your favorite shows, you can. If you wish to skip all those constant ads during your favorite shows, you can do that too.

Plan nameHulu only monthly priceDisney+ Bundle monthly price
Hulu$6.99$13.99
Hulu (No Ads)$12.99$19.99
Hulu + Live TV$69.99$69.99
Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV$75.99$75.99

Verizon Wireless also currently offers the Disney+ Bundle free to customers who subscribe to a selection of eligible Unlimited wireless plans for six months. All you need to do is sign up, switch or upgrade to the Play More Unlimited or Get More Unlimited plans, and the Disney, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle will be included. If you're already subscribed to one of Verizon's discontinued Unlimited plans, you may still be eligible to add the Disney+ Bundle to your account as long as you enroll for the bundle by May 31, 2022.

It's worth pointing out that Verizon mobile accounts that have already redeemed a Verizon Disney+ 12 months free or Disney+ six months free promotion are not eligible to get a second Verizon Disney+ promotion for that mobile account. The Disney+ offer with Verizon 5G Home Internet is also no longer available.

Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle

With this bundle, not only do you get Disney+, but Hulu and ESPN+ are thrown in too. This provides you with a wealth of extra content more suited to grown-ups and sports fans. You're making a saving of almost $8 a month compared to buying each service individually - that's a $168 saving a year. You also have the option of getting the ad-free version of Hulu for an extra $6 a month.

How does Disney+ pricing compare to Netflix?

If you're comparing Disney+ versus Netflix, there are a few things you should consider. Netflix currently starts at $9.99 per month for its most basic plan, restricted to SD streaming. For HD streaming, you'd have to move to one of the other two tiers at $15.49 or $19.99, while Disney+ only offers a single tier which gives you access to SD and HD content for one low price. Netflix's most basic plan costs almost $25 more per year than Disney+, and that's before taking any discounts into account, such as the $70 Disney+ yearly membership offer.

Additionally, the Disney+ Bundle gives you access to ESPN+ and Hulu and Disney+, all for just $13.99 monthly. That's more comparable to Netflix's Standard plan, which includes HD content for that same monthly price, though you have access to three streaming services rather than just one.

Which service you choose really boils down to what you want to watch. Disney+ is perfect for families with kids interested in Disney animated movies, live-action Disney Channel shows and movies, and Pixar films, as well as adults who love Marvel, The Simpsons, and Star Wars. And the content doesn't end there. Netflix is great as well, and these days it's full of exclusive content that you can't watch elsewhere, from shows like Stranger Things and Squid Game to movies like Tick, Tick ... Boom! and The Adam Project.

How does Disney+ pricing compare to Amazon Prime Video?

Prime Video is made available as part of Amazon's Prime subscription, which costs $14.99 a month or $139 for the year. You can also choose to skip the Amazon Prime membership and pay for a standalone Prime Video membership, which costs $8.99 per month. Comparing the Amazon Prime subscription directly to Disney+ and it's $7.99 a month fee is hardly fair, as Amazon Prime offers free shipping, cloud storage, and more, whereas Disney+ is strictly content. However, if you subscribe solely to Prime Video, Disney+'s library of original content is superior.

Some additional differences are favorable to Disney+ as well. For example, while you have access to a variety of series and movies via Amazon Prime Video, you can only stream content on two devices at a time. In contrast, Disney allows up to four concurrent streams and up to seven user profiles.

How does Disney+ pricing compare to Hulu?

On its own, Hulu pricing starts at $6.99 a month for the ad-supported version. If you want to upgrade to the commercial-free plan, it will set you back $12.99, and the Hulu with Live TV plan runs $69.99 a month and automatically includes Disney+ and ESPN+. When comparing the base Disney+ package to the base Hulu package, you'll see that it's only $1 more, but where Disney+ wins is that it doesn't have ads. This puts it in better comparison to the $12 plan.

Where Hulu excels is in its content library. Disney+ is currently limited when comparing the two, but the target audience is also very different. Hulu doesn't compete with Disney+ when it comes to the movies and shows available, and Disney+ has its own collection of original programming, which you obviously can't access on Hulu. Each service has pros and cons, and quite honestly, the best thing is that you can bundle the two of them together for one low monthly cost.

How does Disney+ pricing compare to HBO Max?

At $14.99/month for the ad-free version, HBO Max is almost twice as expensive as the standard Disney+ plan, but it may be worth considering for the content alone. The Warner Bros streaming service is home to loads of popular TV shows and films, such as Game of Thrones, Friends, and new releases like The Batman.

Instead of Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, HBO Max has the Harry Potter franchise and DC films like Aquaman and Wonderwoman, while viewers looking for kid-friendly entertainment can enjoy an entire library of Studio Ghibli, Sesame Street, and Looney Tunes content. 

That being said, Disney+ has the upper hand when it comes to bang for your buck. HBO Max only allows you to download up to 30 titles for offline viewing, while Disney+ offers unlimited downloads. As we already mentioned, Disney+ can be bundled with both ESPN+ and Hulu and, at $13.99 per month, still be a dollar cheaper than the ad-free HBO Max plan. On the other hand, HBO Max has a more diverse library of titles for adults. Once again, the decision will come down to what you and your family want to watch. 

How does Disney+ pricing compare to YouTube TV?

YouTube TV is a service more aimed at someone who wants to cut the cord but still have access to tons of channels and programs as needed. Disney+, however, is a comprehensive library of older films and TV shows mixed with a growing library of new and original content. YouTube TV has more standard cable features, like DVR recording, a channel guide, and a feature that allows users to save shows for offline viewing. In comparison, Disney+ is all on-demand content.

Thanks to a recent increase, pricing starts at $64.99 per month on YouTube TV, whereas Disney+ comes in at just $7 a month. In addition to this, YouTube TV is only available in the U.S. right now, whereas Disney+ is available in 64 countries and counting.

This service is a must-have for parents with younger children, from every Pixar movie like Toy Story and Up! to classic Disney animated films such as The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. It also includes a huge slate of movies you'll want to watch ahead of Marvel Studios series like WandaVision and Moon Knight. Additionally, the platform is the place to go for new Star Wars content, including the brand new series Obi-Wan Kenobi (which premieres May 27th), The Mandalorian, and The Book of Boba Fett, as well as upcoming series like Andor and Ahsoka.

When it comes to the best shows to watch on Disney+, you'll also find the entire catalog of The Simpsons and The Muppet Show, as well as a bevy of Disney Channel TV shows and original movies, from Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana to the High School Musical and Descendants franchises. It's also worth pointing out that some of the content available on Disney+ hasn't been available to watch at all for over a decade, including the Disney Channel show So Weird and a long list of Disney Channel Original Movies, making Disney+ the only place to find you childhood favorites.

There are also new films such as Cruella, Jungle Cruise, Pixar's Luca, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. To learn even more about Disney+, this guide can fill you in on everything you need to know.
