How much does Disney+ cost?
$7.99 per month or $79.99 for a full year. If you want to save on lots of streaming content, consider signing up for the Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for $13.99/month. It’s like getting three services for the price of two. So if you’re only interested in two of these, it’s a no-brainer.
If you’re considering subscribing, keep in mind that Disney+ will raise prices to $10.99 a month or $109.99 a year. That makes it a good time to subscribe now and lock in the lower price until next September.
