Disney Plus free trial - everything you need to know in 2022

Hoping to take advantage of a Disney Plus free trial? That's fair enough - it's always a good idea to test out a streaming service before signing on the dotted line for monthly subscriptions. Particularly because there are so many alternatives out there right now.

Unfortunately, we have some bad news: you can't get a Disney Plus free trial anymore in most parts of the world. That means your cheapest option is now a single month of the service, and this weighs in at $7.99 in the USA or £7.99 for UK viewers. While the price varies in other regions, memberships are similarly affordable no matter where you are. In fact, subscriptions rarely cost more than a couple of coffees.

To help you find out if a Disney Plus free trial is still available in your area (and to get maximum bang for buck if it isn't), we've gone into detail about the latest prices and packages available below.

Is there a Disney Plus free trial?

The Disney Plus free trial is no longer available in the USA, UK, Canada, or Australia. In fact, it was taken down over a year ago. 

That disappearance tells you everything you need to know about how popular Disney Plus is. The company clearly doesn't need a trial to entice potential subscribers.

As such, the cheapest way of getting Disney Plus right now would be a standard month of the service. That will cost you $7.99 in the USA, $11.99 in Canada, £7.99 for UK viewers, or $11.99 in Australia. You'll then get access to the full Disney Plus library in 4K whenever possible - there are no restrictions.

Will the Disney Plus free trial come back?

Wondering if and when the Disney Plus free trial will return? We are too, but we couldn't count on a reappearance any time soon. Disney Plus is doing very well for itself without a free trial, so there's no incentive to change that... for now, anyway.

While we can see the Disney Plus free trial getting an encore during promotional pushes (maybe for the Holiday season or during any upcoming Black Friday Disney Plus deals), the odds aren't great even then. Disney seems content to rely on a stream of original content that'll reel in audiences, and there's more than enough on the horizon to pique interest for even the most belligerent viewer. Whether it's an Obi-Wan series or a Marvel spin-off show focusing on She-Hulk, there's plenty of headline-grabbing must-watches on the way.

Instead of a Disney Plus free trial, the best we can hope for is a discount like the one we got during Disney Plus Day last November. This temporarily brought the price crashing down to $1.99/£1.99 for new subscribers.

Cheesed off that the Disney Plus free trial is gone? Don't worry, it's not a total disaster. Disney Plus bundles are surprisingly affordable, and there are plenty of deals available to get you the service for less. We've listed the latest offers below.

Because these prices increased at the beginning of 2021, they should stay pretty stable for a little while yet. As we said in our Disney Plus sign-up guide, we wouldn't expect them to increase until later in 2022 at the earliest.

Disney Plus - USA

Disney Plus (monthly) |  $7.99 per month

Disney Plus (monthly) | $7.99 per month
Now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone, this standard subscription is the cheapest way of getting the service. It gives you access to everything Disney Plus has on offer, and you can cancel whenever you like.

Disney Plus (one year) | $79.99 one-off payment
If you're in it for the long haul, this annual pass is much better value for money. It gets you 12 months for the price of 10.

Disney Plus, Hulu, ESPN Plus | $13.99 per month
Want the best-value deal now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone? Here it is. This bundle provides three services for the cost of a single month of Standard HD Netflix, netting you Disney Plus itself alongside the more grown-up dramas of Hulu and the sports on ESPN Plus.

Disney Plus, Hulu (no ads), ESPN Plus | $19.99 per month
This bundle is exactly the same as the one above, but there's one key difference - you're avoiding the (quite annoying) ads on Hulu.

1-year Disney Plus gift card | $79.99 at Disney Plus
This offer is digital, so it can be delivered instantaneously to an email address of your choice (in other words, it's perfect for those of us who have left present-buying a bit late). Just remember that it can only be redeemed by new subscribers.

Disney Plus - Canada

Disney Plus (monthly) |  $11.99 per month

Disney Plus (monthly) | $11.99 per month
How much will a month of Disney Plus set you back in Canada? Just $12. That's not too bad, all things considered - you're still getting access to the full library with no restrictions, not to mention the new Star service. That takes the sting out of losing a Disney Plus free trial (sort of).

Disney Plus (one year) | $119.99 one-off payment
Settling in for the long haul with Disney Plus? You get maximum value by signing up for a full year. This saves you around $24 on the standard monthly cost of Disney Plus, and you're getting the Star channel as well.

Disney Plus - UK

Disney Plus (monthly) |  £7.99 per month

Disney Plus (monthly) | £7.99 per month
Looking for the cheapest option now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone? This standard monthly subscription is your best bet. It gives you access to everything the service has to offer as well as the more mature Star channel.

Disney Plus (one year) | £79.90 one-off payment
Paying a one-off fee will get you the streaming service for a full year, and you'll save roughly £16 in the process compared to the monthly cost (you're getting 12 months for the price of 10).

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | £79.90 at Disney Plus
Delivered to any email address at any time you like, this is perfect as a last-minute gift. However, remember that the card can only be redeemed by new subscribers.

Disney Plus - Australia

Disney Plus (monthly) |  $11.99 per month

Disney Plus (monthly) | $11.99 per month
A standard month of Disney Plus will set you back $12 in Australia and $12.99 in New Zealand. It's a shame that the Disney Plus free trial is gone, but the standard rate isn't too bad considering that you're getting the new Star channel as well.

Disney Plus (one year) | $119.99 one-off payment
Getting hold of a full year of Disney Plus provides the best value for money. At $120 in Australia and $129.99 in New Zealand, it saves you the equivalent of two months compared to the standard fee. Once again, you're getting everything on Disney Plus and Star for that price.
