Today is the day! Disney+ has launched in Australia, and I can hear the sigh of relief from parents everywhere, who have been trying to explain to their children where Woody went for the last few months.
Those who purely had a Netflix, then Stan subscription for the Disney movie collection will know what I’m talking about.
But now, the collection is endless. And it’s never going anywhere because it has its own home! And here is why you are gonna want it…
You can watch The Simpsons
Disney+ is a Walt Disney’s very own subscription video-on-demand streaming service. It will be the home of all things Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and… wait for it!
The Simpsons (as well as anything 20th Century Fox, if you remember they bought that too).
It’s got epic original content
Just like Netflix and Stan, the Disney+ platform will be dishing up their own original content you can only watch via the service.
The Mandalorian is their first epic release. And those who are already enthralled in the world of Star Wars won’t want to miss it.
There is also WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Hawkeye and a new live-action remake of Disney animated classic Lady and the Tramp coming very soon.
It’s pretty affordable
Any Netflix subscriber will have gotten their notification of the price increase this week.
Making the $8.99 price tag on Disney plus pretty appealing. You can also subscribe for a year at only $89.99, saving 16%!
There is also a seven-day free trial on signup. A great way to dip your toes.
You can search by decade
One of my favourites features so far on the app is the ability to search via decade!
For us millennials, this is just amazing!! Taking a trip down memory lane with all your favourite Disney Renaissance films of the 1990s or watching my all-time favourite 1950’s classic like Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland.
There is also Princess collection, Original movies and more…
You’ll never run out of things to watch
If you think really about how deep the Disney Vault is, including every single Disney Channel TV show you grew up within the last 20 years. You will never really run out of things to watch!
And if you need me? I’ll be over here watching every episode of Hannah Montana, Jonas and That’s So Raven.
If you are still not convinced, you can check out more about the service here.
How much is it?
As mentioned above, it is $8.99 a month or discounted at $89.99 a year.
Can you have more than one profile?
Yes, you can have up to ten!
How do I get it?
Download it via your app store or login on your desktop via the website.
