Following an earnings call last week, Disney Plus announced that they would be raising prices (again) and cracking down on password sharing. This means that the cost of Disney Plus' ad-free plan is going to jump to $13.99/month on October 13th.
These controversial choices have led many subscribers to wonder if the streaming service is even worth it any more. Sure, Disney Plus is the only app that gives you access to classic Disney films, Star Wars, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that may not be enough for some folks to stick around. If you're sick of all the changes and ready to say sayonara to the Disney-owned streaming service, we can tell you exactly how you can jump ship.
How to cancel Disney Plus on desktop
Whether you're dodging the price increase or simply tired of the streaming service's content, this is how you can cancel Disney Plus today:
- Using a computer or mobile browser, navigate to the Disney Plus website.
- Login to your Disney Plus account
- Select your Profile.
- Under profile, select Account.
- Under Subscription, select your Disney Plus subscription.
- Select Cancel Subscription. You will be prompted to share your reason for cancelling, fill out the survey (optional) and complete cancellation.
It's worth pointing out that if you signed up for Disney Plus through a third party, you'd need to cancel your subscription via the third-party service. For example, if you subscribe to the Disney Bundle via Hulu, you'll be asked to "Manage on Hulu." You can also get started by navigating to the third-party's help center or contacting them to learn more.
If applicable, canceling your Disney Plus subscription will not delete your Disney Plus account or the Disney account you use for other products and experiences from The Walt Disney Company.
