Disney’s popular streaming service offers a robust library ranging from classic animated films and exclusive Marvel and Star Wars content to hit shows like "The Simpsons." But just how much does Disney+ cost? It starts at $7.99 a month.

How much does a Disney+ subscription cost per month?

The final cost of Disney+ depends on whether you’re willing to put up with ads. While the ad-supported Basic plan is $7.99 a month, users can get an ad-free Premium subscription for $13.99 a month or $139.99 a year.

That said, Disney+ offers some of the most flexible package deals of any streaming platform. Users can bundle Disney+ with other streaming services for enhanced savings and a larger content menu. Packages include:

  • Disney+ (with ads) and Hulu (with ads): $9.99 a month.

  • Disney+ (with ads), Hulu (with ads) and ESPN+ (with ads): $14.99 a month.

  • Disney+ (ad-free) and Hulu (ad-free): $19.99 a month.

  • Disney+ (ad-free), Hulu (ad-free) and ESPN+ (with ads): $24.99 a month.

Some existing subscribers have the “legacy” bundle for $18.99 a month, which combines Disney+ (ad-free), Hulu (with ads) and ESPN+ (with ads). This plan is no longer available for new subscribers.

What does Disney+ include?

The ad-supported version of Disney+ includes:

  • Disney movies and TV series.

  • Star Wars and Marvel content.

  • 4K playback (on select titles).

  • The ability to stream up to four devices simultaneously.

  • A total of seven user profiles.

In addition to ad-free streaming, the premium version also offers:

  • Unlimited downloads on up to 10 devices.

  • Dolby Atmos sound (on select titles).

Additionally, bundled users will gain access to content from Hulu and ESPN+, making this an economical option for users with multiple streaming services.

Does Disney+ allow password sharing?

Disney+ has begun rolling out measures to crack down on password sharing this year.

Disney does not allow sharing of accounts or subscriptions outside of a single household, which it defines as devices that are linked to your personal primary residence.

Can Disney+ fit my budget?

The Disney+ package deals may be ideal for families who currently use multiple streaming platforms and are looking to save money. Users who don’t mind watching commercials can save even more by opting for the bundles with ads.

As you’re thinking about how to fit streaming services into your monthly budget, consider the 50/30/20 budgeting framework. In this approach, your take-home income is divided into three buckets: 50% for needs, 30% for wants and 20% for savings and debt paydown. Entertainment falls under the “wants” category.

Additionally, consider which movies and shows you'll be viewing most frequently when deciding if you want to sign up for Disney+ or another streaming service, such as Netflix and Peacock.
