Disney+ is an on-demand streaming service that specializes its titles in the Disney universe, whether you like Marvel or Pixar and even Star Wars. And for the second year in a row, there was a day-long celebration of the streamer and its titles, which resulted in a brand new deal. 

Although subscribers usually pay $8/month for access to Disney's streaming service, signing up from Sept. 8 through Sept. 19 will allow you to take advance of their $1.99/month deal in the U.S. and £1.99/month in the U.K.

Read on for more about Disney+, including some of the biggest titles you can find there.

What is Disney+?

If you're a fan of Disney movies, the Disney Channel, animated movies, and National Geographic shows, you'll want to know how to watch Disney+. Fans of the Avengers series and any of the Star Wars movies will especially be interested in a Disney+ subscription. Disney+ is the on-demand home to these fandoms' movies and TV shows. You can choose to pay the entire yearly subscription at once or make smaller monthly payments.

Disney+ include such mega hit movies as Hamilton, Toy Story, Moana, and Frozen. You can watch all nine movies in the Star Wars saga, along with nearly all of the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Iron Man, the first movie released in 2008, to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder and the live-action Pinocchio, the most recent additions (which were added on Disney+ Day) — and all upcoming releases.

How much does Disney+ cost?

The Disney+ cost is only $8/mo. The Disney+ price is reduced to $80 if you pay for the entire year upfront. This is $16/mo. in savings, which is like getting two months for free.

With a Disney+ subscription, you can create up to seven user profiles and watch its programming on up to four screens at the same time. You can also download as many of the best shows and movies as you want on up to 10 devices.

However, you can take advantage of a Disney+ deal with the Disney Bundle, which includes ESPN+ and Hulu. The cost of Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu, within the Disney Bundle, is $14/mo. Please note, this version of Hulu is ad-supported.

But, you can take advantage of the Hulu and Disney+ bundle signup opportunity by selecting Hulu (No ads). The Disney streaming service price for this bundle is $20/mo.

In addition, Disney+ has a Premier Access option, which gives you the opportunity to watch some of Disney's theatrical releases before regular Disney+ subscribers. Movie is $30 each and can be watched as often as you'd like as long as you're a Disney+ subscriber. Movies that have been included in Premier Access are Mulan, Marvel Studios' Black Widow, Raya and the Last Dragon, and Cruella.

How do I sign up for a Disney+ free trial?

Unfortunately, Disney+ does not offer any free trials at the moment. However, since you can cancel the service at any time, you can try it out for $8/mo. and then just cancel it after one month of use.

Current Disney+ deals and bundles

Although there's no Disney+ free trial, there is a six-month deal offered through Verizon, in addition to the aforementioned $1.99/month deal.

To get Disney+ free for six months, new or current Verizon customers must sign up for a Start Unlimited or Do More Unlimited plan. New Verizon Fios internet customers can also get the same deal. However, Verizon customers who sign up for the Play More Unlimited or Get More Unlimited services get the entire Disney Bundle free for six months.

If you're looking at how to get Disney+ with these deals, you need to sign up through Verizon's website.

If you sign up as a new customer and take advantage of the Disney+ Day deal, you should know that you only get that first month for $1.99. After that, your subscription will continue at the regular price, but you can always cancel before that kicks in.

What's the value of the Disney Bundle?

The Disney Bundle provides something for every member of the family. In addition to getting all of the movies and TV shows available through Disney+, you'll also have all of the titles from Hulu and ESPN+.

The Disney Bundle is either $14/mo. or $20/mo. The difference is based on which version of Hulu you choose. The ad-supported version of Hulu is part of the $14/mo. bundle, while the no-ads Hulu version is included in the $20/mo. option.

Selecting the Disney Bundle results is a savings of $7/mo., and that cost equates to getting ESPN+ for free. The standard price for Disney+ is $8/mo., while the standard price for ESPN+ is currently $7/mo. Hulu is $7/mo., while Hulu (No ads) is $13/mo. To purchase each service separately would cost either $22/mo. for standard Hulu or $28/mo. for Hulu (no ads).

ESPN is raising the price of ESPN+ from $7/mo. to $10/mo. on August 23. The price of the annual plan is also going up from $70/yr. to $100/yr.
