How to get Disney Plus for free

There isn't a free trial, but you might get lucky with one of these other methods.

Published onFebruary 22, 2024

Disney Plus is one of the biggest streaming services, with over 150 million subscribers. You can now stream tons of great TV shows and movies from the vast Disney library, along with new shows and movies added weekly. The price of Disney Plus is also pretty reasonable. It costs $7.99 per month with ads or $13.99 without ads. But is there any way to get Disney Plus for free?

Unlike many other streaming services, Disney Plus has no free trial offer right now. There used to be a seven-day free trial, but it has been phased out. Similarly, there is no student discount for Disney Plus. The only real way to get any kind of discount is to get a bundle. You can sign up for one of a few bundle options at the link below.

Have a family member or friend share their Disney Plus account

Of course, the easiest method to access Disney Plus for free is to have a family member or close friend who already has access to the service share their account information with you. Each Disney Plus account supports up to four simultaneous streams simultaneously and up to seven different profiles. Technically, sharing that account information isn’t allowed, but Disney has been mostly tolerant of password exchanges, at least so far.

Disney Plus for free or discounted for Verizon Wireless customers

Verizon Wireless used to offer Disney Plus for free with several of the unlimited plans. Unfortunately, you can no longer add a new line of service that comes with this perk, but if you’re already on one of the eligible plans, got it before August 20, 2020, and haven’t yet availed yourself of the service, you can still sign up.

Customers on the 5G Do More, 5G Start, Welcome Unlimited, One Unlimited for iPhone, Get More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, or Play More Unlimited plans could be eligible. You’ll receive six months of the Disney Plus premium plan, which is the one without ads. You can claim your free Disney Plus plan by creating and signing into your My Verizon account via the My Verizon website or via the My Verizon app. Once you are signed up, you should see the Disney Plus promotion. Click on the Get Disney+ selection and proceed through the normal signup process for the service.

For new Verizon customers, many of the plans now have the option of adding the Disney Plus Bundle, which also includes ESPN Plus and Hulu, for $10. Eligible plans include Unlimited Ultimate, Unlimited Plus, Unlimited Welcome, and Welcome Unlimited. It’s an excellent option to save, but it isn’t as good as the free deal.

Some US Mobile customers can get a free Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle

The US Mobile wireless carrier offers perks for people who sign up for multiple unlimited lines per account. That includes a way to get the free Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle, which usually costs $14.99 a month. You need to have three unlimited lines for your account, and then you pick the bundle from the choices of streaming services.

Disney park employees’ free offer

If you are employed at one of the Disney parks, like Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida, you can claim a free subscription. The offer is limited to the special bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus in one package. That typically costs $14.99 a month.

Additionally, Cast Members also get a Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass. It allows employees to enter parks for free or give free passes to family members and friends to the Disney parks. This wasn’t the case before 2023. Employees had to choose between either the free Disney Plus bundle or the Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass.

Of course, you likely won’t get a job at Disney just to get this subscription. It’s a nice perk if you already work for Disney, though!

If you commonly fly Delta, there’s a bit of good news for you. Delta passengers can watch select Disney Plus content on its in-flight entertainment system. That is one way to watch Disney+ for free. Sadly, you’re not exactly getting a subscription.

Previously, Delta SkyMiles clients could get a two-week trial period, but this offer has ended.

Get it free with Hulu Plus Live TV

Hulu Plus Live TV is one of the best ways to “cut the cord,” with over 90 live TV channels, including local broadcast stations, and with none of those pesky extra fees you might get with a cable TV subscription. You also get features like free cloud DVR, add-on channels, and more. The service starts at $76.99 a month, with full access to both ESPN Plus and Disney Plus (both with ads) at no additional cost. There are other variations of the bundle that remove Disney Plus ads if you don’t mind paying a bit extra.
