Disney Plus free trial - how and where to get one

If you want to try before you buy a full Disney Plus sign-up, the Disney Plus free trial will be music to your ears. As you'd expect, it gives you access to the service in its entirety for a week, free of charge. Because there are so many streaming services competing for our cash nowadays, that's very much appreciated.

There's plenty to fill your seven-day Disney Plus free trial, too. The House of Mouse's answer to Netflix is stuffed with over 600 TV shows, films, documentaries, and more in the USA alone. That includes the first live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, various MCU movies, every episode of The Simpsons, and a whole lot more we don't have the space to list here. This number is also set to increase in the near future thanks to Marvel shows such as Loki, Hawkeye, and Wandavision. In addition, certain cheap Disney Plus deals give you even more content to wade through - Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+, in fact. Although you don't get a Disney Plus free trial with that particular offer, you can always register for the standard membership's seven-day trial first, cancel the subscription before any payment is taken, and sign up for the other bundle afterward. 

Assuming you don't cancel or choose another bundle once your free trial is over, you'll then start paying the standard monthly rate. That's $6.99 per month in the US, $8.99p/m in Canada and Australia, $9.99p/m in New Zealand, and €6.99p/m in the Netherlands. Because this is half the price of a month's Netflix subscription, it's pretty great value for money.

Once your Disney Plus free trial is over, you'll then have to pay $6.99 per month in the US, $8.99p/m in Canada and Australia, $9.99p/m in New Zealand, and €6.99p/m in the Netherlands. We've got no word on pricing in the UK and Europe at large yet, but we'll find out soon thanks to its March 31 2020 release date in those territories. What's more, every country will get a seven-day free trial.

Can you get more than one Disney Plus free trial?

Sadly, no - you can't get more than one Disney Plus free trial. Unsurprisingly, your Disney Plus free trial has a catch. Because you need to sign up with a form of payment, you won't be able to use a different email addresses unless you have multiple payment accounts as well. And unless you remember to cancel those bonus sign-ups, you'll end up paying multiple times. As such, be mindful of when you activate your Disney Plus free trial. You won't get another one, so don't waste it! 

What's included in the Disney Plus free trial?

The answer is simple: everything. Although Disney Plus is late to the game when it comes to streaming services, it's arguably one of the most appealing out there. Besides all the Disney movies/shows you know and love, it also offers Fox content (including National Geographic documentaries), original Marvel shows in the near-future such as Loki, and unique Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian. Because it's around half the price of competing services such as Netflix, it's also pretty great value.  

How to cancel Disney Plus after the free trial

Fortunately enough, canceling your Disney Plus subscription (before you start paying or after) is pretty easy. What's more, it'll end after your current billing period. Simple, right?

This is how to get it cancelled:

  • Log into Disney Plus
  • Click on your user profile (it's in the upper right-hand side)
  • Select 'Account'
  • Select 'Billing details'
  • Click 'Cancel Subscription' (it's on the right-hand side)
  • Click 'Complete Cancelation' 

And that's it. You're done! You can now carry on with your life. Just remember, you're allowed to cancel before your seven-day Disney Plus free trial is up - it'll stop after those seven days are over.
