In order to be able to watch Disney Plus content, you’ll need to set up an account with the service. The actual process of setting up an account is fairly simple, and it can be done from your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. Follow the steps below to make sure you’re all set up and ready to go once Disney Plus launches on November 12th!
Step 1. Sign up for your Free Trial
Signing up for a free trial is simple. All you need is your email address, date of birth, zip code and payment information if you intend on buying any movies. Before you sign up for a free trial, however, it’s important that you familiarize yourself with the service. You can do so by reading our guide on How to Watch TV Shows on Amazon Prime Video or What is Hulu? . After signing up for your free trial, ensure that you cancel it within 7 days before being charged $8/month unless paying for an annual membership plan which gives you access to all 4 major streaming services including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video & Hulu along with ad-free viewing.
Step 2. Download Disney+ Mobile App on iPhone/Android
First off, you’ll need a Disney+ account. If you already have one, great! All you need to do is install a streaming app on your phone or tablet. There are two apps currently available for downloading: Disney+ App and Apple TV. We recommend using both of them for different reasons. You can learn more about these apps in step 3 below. However, if you don’t have an existing account, then click here to create one. Once you click sign up, it will take you to another screen where all kinds of information will be requested from your email address to birthday information. After filling out everything accurately (including password), click create my free trial. It should only take a minute or so before receiving confirmation that your new account has been created successfully.
Step 3. Login in to your Account
If you already have a paid subscription with another streaming service (like Netflix or Hulu), make sure you sign up for DisneyPlus using your existing account. It’s really easy and convenient, and there’s no need to create a new login. If you don’t have an existing subscription, just click on ‘Start your free trial’ and get your 7-day free trial set up before continuing.
When you log in for your free trial, you’ll see a full-page with information about getting started on DisneyPlus. From here, click on ‘Create account’ and create your log in and password. Enter your email address and choose a password that you will remember, as we will be using these details to DisneyPlus.Com Login/Begin in the future. Choose a username and enter it into both boxes (this is completely optional). You can also opt-in or out of receiving promotional emails from Disney after entering your contact details. If you have not previously been invited through an email from one of their promotions or campaigns, you will need to complete some additional security checks before being able to proceed. Just follow the instructions carefully – it takes around 10 minutes.
Step 4. Pick some Movies & Shows
Once you’ve logged in, click My Disney on your dashboard. This will take you to your home page where you can find everything from show or movie suggestions based on your personal tastes, various shows and movies currently available, what’s coming soon, and TV shows. Click Explore Now if you want to access it right away, or hover over Recommended to browse through Disney’s current lineup of movies and shows. Once you’ve found something that interests you, click Watch Now to be taken directly into that specific content piece.
