We’ve known that Disney+ was going to be the Godzilla of streaming services the moment it was announced. After all, 500 Walt Disney Studios movies and 7,000 episodes of Walt Disney Television is a pretty amazing prospect to have at your fingertips.

If you’re 100% on board with everything from Star Wars to The Simpsons, you’re probably wondering how to sign up for Disney Plus. The good news is that it’s easy, and we can help you get it done so you can meld yourself to your sofa for all eternity.

How much is Disney+?

Considering the mammoth amount of content Disney+ (or Disney Plus, as some call it) has to offer, the price tag seems paltry. Like just about all streaming services these days, you can try it out for free. This trial lasts a week and will automatically renew on day eight, so keep this in mind if you choose not to go forward with the service. But if you do, it’ll set you back $6.99 a month or $69.99 for a year.

You also have the option of rolling Disney+ into a bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month, which in this streamer’s opinion is a dang fine deal. It’s also worth mentioning, however, that Verizon and Fios customers on existing 4G LTE and 5G wireless “unlimited” plans get a year of Disney+ for free, those lucky scamps. Don’t plunk down your credit card until you’re sure that this doesn’t include you!

What’s on Disney+?

Lord, what can’t you watch on Disney+? If you’ve been obsessed with Disney since you were a child, every animated feature you can dream of is now at your fingertips. Hardcore Marvel Universe fan? Yep, all that is there too. The brand-new Star Wars series The Mandalorian is a huge draw for the classic sci-fi franchise. There’s even something for you Jeff Goldblum stans. I hate to say they thought of everything, but Disney ain’t one of the biggest names in the world for nothin’.
