Is There A Disney+ Free Trial?

When Disney+ first launched, it did offer a 7-day free trial. However, as the streaming service became more successful and was able to pull in over a hundred million subscribers around the world, the free trial was removed.  So, unfortunately, there is no way to try Disney+ for free.

The good news is, that should you want to try out Disney+, you can just sign up for the monthly plan, and as long as you unsubscribe before the first month is up, your subscription will be cancelled.    This is a great way of trying out what’s available on Disney+, but not requiring you to sign up for a long contract.

Disney+ Money Saving Tips

There are ways of saving money with your Disney+ subscription.

Ad-Supported Tier

Disney+ now offers a cheaper option for its subscribers, which saves a few bucks a month. In exchange, subscribers will have to watch commercials during selected shows and films.  Most major streaming services also offer ad-supported tiers, and this is a way of getting Disney+ slightly cheaper.   Currently, the ad-supported tier is only available in the United States, but there are plans to launch this in other countries later this year.

Annual Subscription

Another way to save money with your Disney+ subscription is to take out an ad-free annual subscription, which does require you to buy an entire annual subscription upfront.   Taking out an annual subscription can save you two months subscription.  But unfortunately, it’s only available for the ad-free tier, which is more expensive.   And if you’ve never signed up for Disney+ before, it’s probably worth going for a monthly plan to see if there is enough content to keep you entertained for a year.

Disney Streaming Bundle

In the United States, Disney offers a variety of bundles of its three streaming services, Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu.  There are many different options available, with ad-supported and ad-free options.  These options are only available on a monthly plan, so there isn’t an annual option available.  If you enjoy watching content from all three of these streaming services, this option can save you money.

Disney+ Freebies

While Disney+ doesn’t tend to offer too many discounts (though it sometimes does around Disney+ Day or the holidays), many mobile phone and credit card providers offer Disney+ as a perk, so it’s worth checking with your providers.  These offers vary greatly between providers, and as the streaming companies shift to profitability over getting new subscribers, these deals have become harder to find.

Another option, is Disney offers gift cards through its official online and physical stores, so during the holidays, dropping some hints to your friends and family might not go amiss!
