Disney Plus is one of the newer streaming services around – it only launched in November 2019, but since then it has notched up a staggering 146 million customers. Its vast back catalogue of animated greats has played a big part in its success, but there's a lot more to it than Snow White, Pinocchio and the like.
Disney owns the Marvel and Star Wars properties, as well as the Pixar animation studio. Add to that National Geographic and Star, and you've got a lot of entertainment at your fingertips.
Which, unsurprisingly, Disney charges for. Disney Plus costs £7.99 ($7.99, AU$13.99) a month, or £79.90 (AU$139.99) a year. In the US, the basic tier includes adverts and isn't available for an annual fee – for no ads, you'll need Disney Plus Premium, which costs $10.99 a month, or $109.99 a year. But there are cheaper ways to get your fix...
That's where we come in. We've rounded up the best Disney Plus deals around so you can enjoy all that's on offer without paying over the odds. Let's start saving money.
Disney Plus 12 months for £79.90 / AU$139.99
The easiest way to save is with an annual subscription. It works out around £16 (AU$28) cheaper than paying monthly, or 12 months for the price of 10. It's less flexible than the monthly option, but worth it if you don't mind committing for a year.
Disney Plus free for six months with O2
Disney Plus can be yours completely free for up to six months when you take out a mobile plan on O2. Just pick Disney Plus as your extra when completing your purchase. New or upgrading customers only – existing customers can add it for a discount of £2 a month.
12 months' free Disney Plus with select Samsung handsets
Buy the Galaxy Z Fold5 or Galaxy Z Flip5 and Samsung will give you 12 months' free Disney Plus. The above link is for the Z Fold5, this one is for the Z Flip5. Both folding phones look promising, so this deal could well pay off.
Get Disney Plus for three months for £12 of Tesco Clubcard vouchers
Tesco Clubcard members can exchange £12 of vouchers for three months of Disney Plus (which usually costs just shy of £24). The offer is open to both new and existing Disney Plus subscribers, too.
Disney Plus bundles from $9.99 a month
You can also save by taking Disney Plus on a bundle. With Hulu, it's $9.99 a month, you can combine it with Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month, and add all three without ads for $19.99 a month. In Australia, you can add it to OnePass for free delivery from certain brands for AU$14.99 a month (a monthly saving of AU$3).
Disney Plus free trial
When it launched, Disney Plus offered a free seven-day trial so viewers could test the waters before shelling out for a subscription. That has since disappeared. But as Disney Plus continues to launch in more countries around the world, it could be on offer once again for potential customers in new territories.

Disney Plus has plenty to watch – in our Disney Plus review, we said that was one of its biggest selling points. After all, it was in the original content game before Netflix's Reed Hastings was even born. Its slate of originals includes The Mandalorian, The Bear, Peter Pan & Wendy, Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, Clone Wars, Hawkeye and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
And Disney is putting its money where its mouth is. It plans to spend between $8bn and $9bn on Disney Plus content alone in fiscal 2024, by which it hopes to have attracted over 230 million subscribers.
