What is Disney Plus Day?
Disney Plus Day is a wide-reaching celebration of all things Disney Plus. New programs and specials have been added to the service today. In addition, people who attend the Disney theme parks around the world will get some extra perks on that day, and anyone who is on a Disney Vacation Club Member Cruise will get some extras as well from August 29 to September 5. AMC Theatres will have special screenings of Disney films like Encanto, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Newsies, Cars, and Thor: Ragnarok from today to September 19 at select locations for $5 each.
When and where can you watch?
Disney Plus Day takes place today, September 8. New programming on the service is now available, so the main “event” will take place there. In 2021, other exclusives were rolled out on other Disney-owned channels, but there’s no word on if that will happen this year.
