Hoping to take advantage of Black Friday Disney Plus deals this year? With a live-action Hawkeye series now upon us (followed by the return of Boba Fett in his own TV show at the end of this year), getting a discount would be mighty handy right about now.
That's why we've been on the hunt for an offer on the streaming service during 2021's biggest sale. So far, the most tempting of the Disney Plus deals we've encountered would be this Amazon Music Unlimited subscription that gets you a free six-month Disney Plus membership. While you're still paying $9.99 per month for Amazon Music (or $7.99p/m if you have Prime), you're getting $47.94's worth of Disney Plus for your trouble.
- Get 6 free months of Disney Plus with Amazon Music
- Cheapest Disney Plus deal | $7.99p/m / £7.99p/m
- Disney Plus + Hulu + ESPN Plus bundle | $13.99 p/m
- Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 / £79.90
So, what else is out there? Unfortunately for us, other Black Friday Disney Plus deals are thin on the ground. The streaming service isn't known for offering discounts, and because it received an unexpectedly good one for Disney Plus Day earlier in November, we don't fancy the chances of another reduction. There's a chance we'll wind up being wrong, naturally, but the 2019 and 2020 sales would suggest otherwise.
Luckily, there are more than a few options on the table if you want to save some cash. We've rounded up the best options right here, and they should help you get maximum value for money regardless of whether we get some Black Friday Disney Plus deals or not.
It's not a bad idea to check out the HBO Max free trial if you're hunting for budget-friendly entertainment either. That streaming service is crammed with old favorites like Friends and plenty of new films you might have missed in theaters, so it's worth investigating if you have a spare moment during Thanksgiving.
Today's best deals
Free 6-month Disney Plus membership with Amazon Prime Music Unlimited subscription
In a surprise twist, Amazon is offering its own Black Friday Disney Plus deals. Anyone that signs up for Amazon Music Unlimited ($9.99p/m, or $7.99p/m for Prime members) will get half a year of the Disney streaming service for free, which adds up at almost $50 in value. Just remember, you'll need to cancel both separately - otherwise you'll start paying for Disney Plus on a monthly basis once your free six-month sub is over.
Disney Plus (monthly membership) | $7.99 per month (USA) / £7.99 per month (UK)
Following the free trial's end (rest in peace, sweet prince), this is by far the cheapest way of getting Disney Plus. While we're not expecting any Black Friday Disney Plus deals, at least the standard membership isn't too deadly in the grand scheme of things. And importantly, it gets you everything on the streaming service without locking you into a contract. That means you can cancel whenever you like.
Disney Plus, Hulu, ESPN Plus | $13.99 per month ($19.99p/m without Hulu ads)
Those hunting down maximum value for money will be best served with this offer. Even though it's a little pricier up-front, you're getting three different services for the price of two thanks to this deal. More importantly, it's got something to suit everyone; there's the family-friendly escapades of Disney Plus, the mature dramas of Hulu, and the sports of ESPN. They all fill a niche, so this bundle provides a more well-rounded suite of content than other deals.
Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus USA / £79.99 at Disney Plus UK
If you need an easy present for a loved one, family member, or friend that adores Disney, this is definitely worth a look. The card provides full access to everything on Disney Plus for a whole year, and you're essentially getting 10 months for the price of 12 with this offer. Finally, it can be digitally delivered to whoever you like at the time of your choosing. Just remember, it can only be redeemed by someone who does not have Disney Plus already.
Black Friday Disney Plus deals - everything you need to know
Have the Black Friday Disney Plus deals started yet?
The Black Friday deals have officially kicked off; they began on November 26 this year. However, that doesn't mean they'll stick to that one day. The event has ballooned in size recently, and offers will transition into Cyber Monday sales (November 29) a few days later. The best Black Friday Disney Plus deals will take place within that window, and we're already seeing offers that get you a free six-month Disney Plus membership with an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.
What are the best Black Friday Disney Plus deals?
While the Black Friday Disney Plus deals are a little sparse (the company doesn't even run a Disney Plus free trial anymore, which tells you everything you need to know about how well the service is doing right now), there are some good offers out there if you know where to look. Namely, you can grab a free six-month Disney Plus membership with an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription right now. Although that discount can't match some of the Black Friday board game deals or Black Friday laptop deals we've seen so far, it is pretty great nonetheless.
It also means that you don't need to wait on the off-chance something better comes along. The current prices are likely to be the lowest we'll see this side of 2022, so you're all clear to grab a membership without fear of the price dropping later in November.
With that in mind, what Disney Plus sign-up should you go for? If the Amazon Music discount isn't for you (which is fair enough), the cheapest current offer, would be a standard monthly Disney Plus subscription. It's $7.99 per month in the USA, £7.99p/m in the UK, and $11.99p/m in Canada or Australia. You won't find anything cheaper.
It's worth considering one of the top Disney Plus bundles, too. You can currently pick up a triple-pack of content featuring Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month or $19.99p/m without Hulu ads. That's in the same ball-park as a single Standard HD month of Netflix but for three times the amount of content.
Shopping for someone else, on the other hand? The digital Disney Plus gift card is what you need. It's an annual membership and saves you roughly $14 / £12 compared to buying each month separately (that's 12 months for the price of 10, in other words). Because it's a code, you can also have it sent wherever you like, whenever you like. Just remember, it can only be activated by new subscribers.
Be sure to check out the other Black Friday sales on offer while you're looking for bargains - there are Black Friday PS5 and Xbox Series X TV deals (perfect for your new Disney Plus subscription) and Black Friday gaming deals kicking about at the moment.
