Disney Plus free trial - how and where to get one and what's included

With an ever-growing collection of new movies and TV shows to enjoy, there's never been a better time to treat yourself to a Disney Plus free trial. The unrestricted 7-day trial is a decent time to get a feel for the content available and regular box set bingers will have no trouble thrashing through the entire first season of the new Star Wars TV show, The Mandalorian.

You'll also be able to squeeze in loads of classic Disney movies along the way with the modern Disney remakes and loads of Marvel movies too. You're certainly going to need more than seven days to watch every episode of The Simpsons too (yep, every season is here).

There are lots of different streaming services to choose from nowadays and not all of them offer any time for free, so we're all over a Disney plus free trial. If you try it decide the service isn't for you just yet, just cancel your membership before the seven days are up (it's super easy and we've explained the steps further down this page) to avoid being billed for a month. We reckon that at just $6.99 a month though, you'll be very tempted to stick around.

The Disney Plus free trial is available on the standard membership and is a good way of testing the waters if you're unsure about grabbing a full Disney Plus sign-up. And even if you don't continue your membership at the end, there's more than enough to keep you busy during the trial itself. The service offers hundreds of shows, movies, documentaries, and more, so you won't be short of things to watch. That glut of content isn't slowing down. We're due some Marvel miniseries like Falcon and the Winter Soldier in the near future, The Mandalorian Season 2 will arrive by Fall 2020, and an Obi-Wan series starring Ewan McGregor is also on the cards.

Luckily, those who decide to invest after a Disney Plus free trial won't find their bank balance suffering too much. Folks in the US can grab it at $6.99 per month, viewers from Canada and Australia can sign up for $8.99p/m, and New Zealand viewers are able to get involved at $9.99p/m. There's even a cheap Disney Plus deal in the USA that gives you Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99p/m, which is the same price as a standard month of Netflix. You don't get a Disney Plus free trial with that bundle, but hey, it's still pretty great value for money. What's more, there's no reason you couldn't pick up a standard membership, cancel it after your seven free days, and then register for the other offer.

If you're also looking to upgrade ou mobile data plan at the moment, then you'll find Verizon is offering a free year of Disney Plus when sign up via the Verizon site.

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.

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 TV shows like The Mandalorian. Because it's around half the price of competing services such as Netflix, it's also pretty great value.  

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 trial has a tiny 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. As such, be mindful of when you activate your Disney Plus free trial. You won't get another one, so don't waste it!

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.
