Disney Plus gift cards are exactly what the doctor ordered if you've ended up leaving present-buying to the last minute (don't worry, your secret's safe with us). These online codes from the official Disney website will arrive into an email inbox of your choosing right away, meaning you don't have to fret about delivery wait times. So long as the recipient doesn't already have the Disney streaming service (in which case they won't be able to redeem the card), it's the ideal last-minute gift.

How much do Disney Plus gift cards cost, though? The price varies from country to country, but it always secures you a full year of the service. It saves you money in the long run, too. Because the card will set you back $79.99 in the USA, £79.90 in the UK, $119.99 in Canada, or $119.99 in Australia, you're managing to save $16, £16, or CA/AU$22 compared to paying for Disney Plus on a month-by-month basis. In other words, the recipient is getting 12 months for the price of 10.

For the full lowdown on Disney Plus gift cards, keep on reading - we have more details below. But before we go any further, remember: these cards can only be activated by new subscribers. If the recipient already has a Disney Plus membership, they won't be able to use the card. As such, it's worth double-checking before you commit to the idea.

How long does a Disney Plus gift card last?

All Disney Plus gift cards offer a full year of the streaming service; the recipient will get a 12-month membership as soon as they redeem the code.

Unfortunately for those looking to save money, this is the only available option right now - at the time of writing, there aren't any cheaper Disney Plus gift cards with a reduced membership.

Who can use a Disney Plus gift card?

The only people that are able to redeem Disney Plus gift cards are new subscribers that don't already have the service. If they do, the card won't work - as noted on the official Disney Plus site, these cards "cannot be used to pay for an existing subscription."

With that in mind, existing members will have to look at the latest Disney Plus sign-up deals or Disney Plus bundles instead.

Can you get a physical Disney Plus gift card instead of a digital one?

Hoping to pick up an actual Disney Plus gift card you can hold in your hands? That might be a little tricky. Physical cards are hard to come by, and they're only available in select USA Disney Stores and the Disney Parks. Consequently, most of us will need to make do with the standard digital code.

Unfortunately, Disney Plus gift cards haven't been released everywhere the streaming service can be found. That means you'll need to check and see if there's an equivalent for your region. 

If you don't have any luck, be warned: you cannot use Disney Plus gift cards from outside of your country, as it won't work and you'll have wasted both your money and time.

If your region doesn't offer Disney Plus gift cards yet, don't fret - there are plenty of gift ideas that can tide you over in the short term. We'd recommend starting with the excellent Disney Villainous board game, or The Haunted Mansion board game; they're ideal for any Disney fan looking for something new.

Want to see what all the fuss is about yourself? While the Disney Plus free trial is sadly no more, the deals we've been left with are still aggressively reasonable. You'll find the latest offers below.

As for more info on whether the streaming service is worth your time, be sure to check out our Disney Plus review.

Disney Plus + Hulu + ESPN Plus (USA only) | $13.99 per month
If you want the best-value option for Disney Plus, it's this one. Despite being more expensive per month, it gets you three times the amount of content and fills out some gaps in Disney's programming. Namely, Hulu offers mature dramas while ESPN throws in more sport than you'll know what to do with.

Disney Plus + Hulu (no ads) + ESPN Plus (USA only) | $19.99 per month
The ads on Hulu can be a real nuisance, and this offer allows you to avoid them entirely. Mileage for this one will of course vary, but because interruptions seem to be more frequent on newer shows you'll want to watch, it's worth the extra few bucks so far as we're concerned.

Disney Plus | $7.99p/m (USA) / £7.99p/m (UK) / $11.99p/m (CA/AU)
Looking for the cheapest possible option? It's this one. The standard monthly membership for Disney Plus won't cost you much more than a few coffees, and it can be cancelled at any time.
