Disney Plus has been all the rage even since it launched in November 2019, treating users to all sorts of exciting content, from original series to recent blockbuster movies and classic animated films.

The platform offers ad-free access to a growing library of TV shows and movies from not only Disney itself, but also subsidiaries Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic.

More recently, the streaming service launched gift subscriptions. You can purchase an entire year of Disney Plus for a loved one who doesn't have an account yet. That's 12 months of movie marathons, new releases and a whole bunch of family-friendly content that both kids and adults can enjoy.

A gift subscription currently costs $89.99. We're yet to find out how this will change once Disney Plus adds Star in February 2021. Once purchased your gift card is sent as an email subscription card to the recipient on a date of your choosing.

How to gift Disney Plus in Australia

To purchase a Disney Plus gift subscription, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Disney Plus gift subscription page
  2. Click on the Give A Year button.
  3. Enter your name and email. Agree to the Terms and Conditions. Then, enter the details of the recipient – including name, email, the date on which you want the gift subscription to be delivered and an optional personalised message.
  4. Enter your payment information.

That's it! The $119.99 fee will be charged to your account as soon as you make the purchase. You can only buy a gift subscription for new users who aren't signed up yet, so the 12 months can't be added to an ongoing subscription.

The recipient will get the email on the date you choose with a redemption code that is for 1-time use only and non-transferable. They then go to the Disney Plus website, enter the code and activate their free year of access to all of its awesome content.

What if I want to get Disney Plus for myself?

Disney Plus subscriptions cost $11.99 a month or $119.99 a year in Australia. To sign up, simply head to the Disney Plus website, create an account and enter your personal and payment information. The service doesn't offer a free trial at the moment.

Once your subscription is activated, you'll have access to the entire Disney Plus library, including hit series The Mandalorian, acclaimed Broadway musical Hamilton and superhero blockbusters like Avengers: Endgame.

You can watch on 4 devices at the same time and use the GroupWatch feature to stream shows and movies with up to 6 family members and friends who have Disney Plus.
