Can you use a Disney Plus subscription card if you already have an account?
New subscribers only
Disney+ is all the magic of the Happiest Place on Earth right on your screen, and now it's easier to gift that subscription to your favorite Mouse-house enthusiast. You can now purchase 12-month subscription cards and share the wonderful world of Disney — but don't just go buy a bunch of cards without reading the fine print.
While these cards can be great gifts, they can only be redeemed by new subscribers. Unfortunately, that means if you already have an account, you cannot use a subscription card. Not only does this apply to those who actually own the service, but anyone who signed up for the seven-day free trial is also out of luck. Before you start clearing off the kiosk with subscription cards for your friends and family, it's best to check to see if they have it first.
I already bought one. Now what?
Don't worry; you can still find a way to use your subscription card, but it takes a few steps. If you already have Disney+, you can wait until your monthly (or yearly) bill cycle is up and cancel your service. From there, you can create a new account using the 12-month subscription card.
If you already have the D23 three-year package...well, you will be waiting for some time. You can always share the magic with someone else.
Sadly, there is no digital gift card for Disney+ just yet. If you do want to pick up a subscription card, you can grab them at local Disney Stores, Disney World stores, or Disneyland stores. Before you give the gift of Disney+, however, make sure your friend or family member can use it.
I've got the magic
Disney magic for your viewing pleasure
Disney+ is streaming with a touch of pixie dust. Now, you can enjoy Disney movies and programming along with some brand new features and shows. With classics like Fox and the Hound to new originals like the Mandalorian, it's a magical service worth sharing with friends and family.
