    I was super excited for this to finally come to my home in Japan; mainly so my kids could have access to the library in both languages. Sadly, it really is only Disney Deluxe, rebranded. Just like Amazon, Hulu, and others, it is a wholly separate company and service than the US or versions accessible internationally. The Japanese FAQ tersely dismisses users who inquire about the ability to access the service with their international accounts, saying "D+ Japan is a service for this country only. If you want to use Disney+ accounts from other countries, please go to that country." This conflicts with the guidance from the US support site that D+ accounts can be used anywhere the service is available, though content may be different. Further, I had trouble finding content on D+ Japan that includes the original English audio or even subtitles. I'd have to subscribe in two countries plus use VPN to share English versions with my kids. Really disappointed all around. 👎
