The best family shows on Disney+

If you’re looking for a series you can watch with the entire family, Disney+ offers plenty of choice.

Streaming service Disney+ launched with fanfare in New Zealand, boasting a vast library that has something for everyone. Since the platform specialises in family-oriented content, there’s no wonder a big chunk of the titles available can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. That includes several options of series to stream on family night.

While hit series The Mandalorian seems like an obvious choice, younger kids may not find this sci-fi western particularly appealing. You can indulge them by watching one of Disney’s biggest hits, Boy Meets World. Or, you can find out more about some wonderful children via Marvel’s Hero Project. Whichever option you choose, you won’t want to stop after only one episode.

After cross-checking all Disney+ titles available in New Zealand with IMDb, we’ve compiled a list of the best family shows currently available.
