What you need to know
- Disney+ is now available for general pre-order in the United States.
- It's still $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year.
- And you still have to wait until Nov. 12 to actually watch it.
If you just can't wait for Nov. 12 to roll around and for Disney+ to officially launch, it's now available for pre-order for folks in the United States.
And, well, that's it. You don't get anything extra. You don't get a price break, like with the D23 promotion. But you do have the knowledge that you've subscribed to something and given Disney your credit card more than a month in advance. So there's that.

Note that this is only for Disney+, and that the ridiculously well-priced $12.99 bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN+ won't be available until launch on Nov. 12.
Disney+ is the upcoming streaming home for all of Disney proper. Of course, that world has expanded by several orders of magnitude as Disney also owns Marvel and Star Wars, as well as Pixar and National Geographic.

The wait is almost over
Disney is finally bringing all of its content under one roof for streaming, after years of it being split on half a dozen services. Disney+ will feature original content as well as timeless classics from Disney, Star Wars, National Geographic, Marvel, Disney Channel, and Fox.

So Disney+ is apparently going to be available in Australia from Day One - but only the US can pre-order a subscription? Yeah, good work Disney... That makes loads of sense.
Same applies to New Zealand I suspect. Do we get a one month free trial?
Genuine question, why do you care? I pre-order things like collectors editions of games or new consoles that may sell out, but this is a digital subscription service, there's an effectively infinitely amount of it and it's instantly accessible... Why pre-order?
Wow... Can hardly wait to have nothing to do with this overrated crap.
Why would you preorder a subscription service with no perks?
That's what i was gonna say. If they're offering a discount for people who pre-order then cool, but why is this a thing and why would anyone care?
It's all so that they can tout numbers to shareholders. It's Disney
