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

Lover of all things Disney? You may want to sign up to Disney Plus.

Since launching in Australia in November 2019, streaming TV service Disney Plus has amassed a healthy catalogue of TV shows, movies, documentaries, specials and reality TV.

Here's what you need to know about trialling the service.

Can I get Disney Plus for free?

No, Disney Plus used to offer a 7-day free trial but retired it in Australia on 19 June 2020. While there has been speculation that the trial might be back at a future date, we're yet to see this happen anywhere except for some new countries where Disney Plus is debuting.

The only way to stream Disney content now is to sign up for a monthly or annual subscription. The prices are $13.99 a month and $139.99 a year.

What we have seen though is other special promotions, mainly around September, but also with other brand partnerships like Telstra or Foxtel.

Watch new and classic TV and movies from Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel, National Geographic, 21st Century Fox, Hulu, ESPN and more from 1 streaming service.

The library features 903 TV shows and 2,040 movies. The majority of titles on Disney Plus are classic content, so there is a good chance you have seen a lot of it. Whether it's Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic or Disney itself, it's a catalogue of some of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

Many of the titles are worth a rewatch, especially if you have children living under your roof. There are perennial kids classics such as Frozen and Moana alongside recent additions.

For more adult-focused content, there is the Star channel. It includes the likes of Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, American Horror Story and other titles.Disney Plus is streaming original, exclusive content you won't find anywhere else too. Original Star Wars TV series Ahsoka, Marvel's She-Hulk: Attorney at Law as well as The Bear and The Kardashians lead the exclusive list. Recent original movies on the service include Rye Lane and Boston Strangler.

For example there's Disney Plus Day which usually happens once a year (but not in 2023), where the cost of 1 month of the service is reduced for a limited time. Or in September 2023, there was an offer where you could get 2 months of Disney Plus for free.
