What is Disney+ and how do I sign up?

If you aren't familiar with Disney+ or have been holding out on signing up, now's the time to learn more and get a subscription started — especially as membership costs will be rising to $8 next spring.

You can get started with a Disney Plus subscription for just $6.99 per month, or combine it with Hulu and ESPN+ for just $12.99 a month. Both give you access to the same Disney+ library, but obviously the bundle just gives you more services to watch.

From DCOMs to National Geographic, from Marvel to Lucasfilm to 20th Century Fox and beyond, Disney+ delivers a streaming service for all ages. It's also packed with content for the holidays, from movies and holiday episodes to original series like Noelle.
