What you need to know
- Disney+ is now available for general pre-order in the United States.
- It's still $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year.
- And you still have to wait until Nov. 12 to actually watch it.
If you just can't wait for Nov. 12 to roll around and for Disney+ to officially launch, it's now available for pre-order for folks in the United States.
And, well, that's it. You don't get anything extra. You don't get a price break, like with the D23 promotion. But you do have the knowledge that you've subscribed to something and given Disney your credit card more than a month in advance. So there's that.
Note that this is only for Disney+, and that the ridiculously well-priced $12.99 bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN+ won't be available until launch on Nov. 12.
Disney+ is the upcoming streaming home for all of Disney proper. Of course, that world has expanded by several orders of magnitude as Disney also owns Marvel and Star Wars, as well as Pixar and National Geographic.
A magical streaming service
The wait is almost over
Disney is finally bringing all of its content under one roof for streaming, after years of it being split on half a dozen services. Disney+ will feature original content as well as timeless classics from Disney, Star Wars, National Geographic, Marvel, Disney Channel, and Fox.

The problem with disney+ is that you won't get access to the newer content (nor by far all the disney content in general) the first few years (especially the 1st year). So while it is relatively cheap, I don't think it is worth it unless one is diehard disney fan or has missed a lot of older disney/marvel content.
Ehm no, it has alot of the newer content already for it still being in a test phase. They also did a content dump 3 days ago. More TV shows, cartoons and movies. There is also a major content dump waiting on the full release including more of Disney's latest hits. The test includes new and old and classics.
All the movies released in 2019 would come directly to D+. The ones from 2017-18 would be the ones that'd missing for a few months.
