As you might have heard already, a Disney Plus price increase is going into effect on December 8th. This price hike is going to raise the monthly cost of the ad-free plan from $7.99 per month to $10.99 per month, while the annual fee will jump from $79.99 to $109.99. While some folks are trying to avoid the price increase by pre-paying for a year of streaming in advance, many others are canceling their accounts altogether. Disney Plus lets you do this at any time, but finding the right section on their website can be a little tricky.

To make life easier, we've put together the following instructions so you can cancel your subscription in just a few minutes.  

How to cancel Disney Plus

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: 

  1. Using a computer or mobile browser, navigate to the Disney Plus website.

  1. 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.
