Disney Plus gift cards might just be one of the easier and more convenient ways to gain access to the house of the mouse's streaming platform in 2023. Now that ads have been introduced to Disney Plus too, gift cards can sometimes provide a cheaper alternative than taking out a standard subscription. 

Another positive is that since online codes are available for $109.99 in the US (opens in new tab) or £79.90 in the UK (opens in new tab), they'll arrive by email instantly. In other words? There's absolutely no need to worry about waiting for delivery. So long as the recipient doesn't already have an account with Disney's streaming service, they'll be able to sign up whenever it's convenient for them.

Are there any cheaper options available? And how long do memberships from Disney Plus gift cards last? We've gone into detail below, so keep scrolling down the page for more nuggets of wisdom courtesy of our dedicated bargain-hunting team. 

Just remember, these cards can only be activated by new subscribers. That means recipients who already have a Disney Plus sign-up will not be able to redeem any card you give them. With that in mind, we'd highly recommend checking before committing to a purchase.

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. This is great for anyone looking to watch Star Wars: The Bad Batch (opens in new tab) or the upcoming Loki season 2 over the coming months. 

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 bundles instead.

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

Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

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 Disney Stores and Disney Parks in the US. 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.

This is comfortably the best Disney Plus bundle you can get at the moment. As well as Disney Plus, you're receiving Hulu ($7.99) and its mature dramas to go with the sports of ESPN Plus ($9.99). That provides something for the whole family, and you're saving $12.98 a month with the total value of these three individually equating to $25.97.

The ads on Hulu and Disney Plus 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.

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 canceled at any time.

For those in the US, it's worth jumping on before December 8th to save some cash with the monthly cost going up to $10.99 per month.
