by | Nov 12, 2021 | Disney Movies, Disney+, WDW Blog

Hope y’all weren’t planning on sleeping on this Disney+ Day, because the news is coming as fast and furious as a souped-up Supra. WDW Magazine has your up-to-date list of all the hot new Disney+ Day releases and how and when you can expect to watch.

Tap here to skip ahead for all the Disney+ Day releases that were just announced.

What is Disney+ Day?

Back in September, Disney announced a grand ol’ celebration to mark the two-year anniversary of Disney+ bringing more magic into the world.

Disney+ Day is a celebration of all things Disney and includes new launches and releases, sneak peeks at upcoming movies and shows, and unique in-park experiences.

If you’re sitting at home with Twitter open, Disney+ Day feels a bit like E3 because it’s just big drop after big drop after big drop. Except it’s D3. Not D3: The Mighty Ducks, though. More like Dang, Disney+ Day!

Is Disney+ on Sale for Disney+ Day?

Do you somehow still not have Disney+? Well, today is a great day to fix that.

From now until Nov. 14—that’s Sunday, folks—you can sign up for one month of Disney+ for just $1.99. That gets you a whole month of Disney+ streaming goodness for about the cost of a cup of delicious coffee.

After that first month, the price will increase to the regular rate of $7.99 per month. But trust us—you’re going to be so snowed that you’ll realize this is money well spent.

And what will you get in that first month? Well, because you’re signing up around Disney+ Day, you’re getting a bountiful bevy of new content—including two of the hottest hits of the summer.

Are There More Disney+ Day Deals?
