How to get the Disney+ free trial: A step-by-step guide

Are you looking to watch The Mandalorian, Artemis Fowl and more for free on Disney+? Here’s everything you need to know.


Fact checked

A new era for entertainment behemoth Disney began in March 2020. The highly anticipated streaming TV service Disney+ hit the ground running with a stunning catalogue of over 800 TV shows and movies. While the service isn’t perfect, it’s still great value for only €6.99 a month or €69.99 a year.

While the launch library of titles is large, it’s true that you have probably already seen most of the content on Disney+. Whether it’s Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic or Disney itself, this is a catalogue of some of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

Thankfully, there is also new, original, exclusive content on offer on Disney+. It’s led by the new live-action TV series The Mandalorian, and two new movies – a live-action Lion King and Aladdin.

There are also documentaries, shorts, a documentary series starring Jeff Goldblum and more to discover that you will have never seen anywhere else. So, are these good enough for you to sign-up for Disney+ long term?

How to sign up to Disney+

Signing up for the Disney+ free trial is a simple process. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Head over to the Disney+ sign up page.
  2. You’ll see a big blue button that you can press to start your Disney+ subscription. This is where you will need to choose a plan. To be safe, choose $8.99/month – that way, you have an entire month to explore the library and figure out if it makes for a solid long-term investment. You can change to the annual plan in the future if you want to keep the service on.
  3. MARK THE DATE WHEN THE FIRST MONTH ENDS IN YOUR CALENDAR. That way, you will remember to cancel before being billed for another month if you’re not planning to hold on to your subscription for longer.
  4. On the next page, you need to enter your email address.
  5. You must then enter a strong password.
  6. You will need to enter your credit card details to proceed.
  7. Enjoy as much content as you can that first month to make the most of your money.
  8. If you’re not a fan of the service or the content, follow these steps to cancel your account on or before the day you marked in your calendar.

Sign up to Disney+ to stream hundreds of movies and shows

Watch new and classic TV and movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and 21st Century Fox from one streaming service.
