Disney+ is the newest and splashiest entrant into the online streaming wars. It comes complete with a boatload of iconic content ready to stream, with marquee titles from Star Wars: A New Hope to Iron Man to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs available for you to watch, some for the first time in years.
Disney+ offers a 7-day free trial so you can test out their offerings without committing. To start streaming you can sign up for a free trial to Disney+ today. You will need to enter in your email address and a credit card number to get set up, and you will need to cancel your free trial within seven days, otherwise you will be charged for the subscription. If you decide to continue the subscription, the cost will be for $6.99 a month or $69.99 per year. Or you can get the service as part of a special value bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99 a month in total.
Some Verizon mobile and FIOS customers will get a free year of Disney+ on the telecom company. Check with Verizon to see if your plan qualifies.

The subscription-based platform will serve as the new home for Walt Disney Studios films as well as original, exclusive Disney+ content like Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, and a full slate of live-action Marvel shows. Disney+ is also the home for original series like High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, a live action Lady and the Tramp remake, and an upcoming Lizzie Maguire reboot.
In addition to its all-new programming, Disney+ offers on-demand access to classic titles like Fantasia, The Little Mermaid, the original High School Musical, Lilo & Stitch, The Sword in the Stone, Toy Story, Tron, Up, and Wall-E. The extensive library also includes such beloved TV series as Boy Meets World, DuckTales, Kim Possible, Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, That's So Raven, and 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
In true Disney fashion, there are no R-rated movies on Disney+ at launch. By the end of its first year, Disney expects to bring over "7,500 episodes of television and 500 movies" to the service-including Aladdin (2019), Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Dumbo (2019), Frozen 2, The Lion King (2019), Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Toy Story 4, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
