Ohhhhh Happy Day Disney Fam!!!! If you are anything like me and my family, you woke up so early this morning you would’ve have thought there were presents under the tree!!! If you have been roaming through the wilderness off the grid then you may be one of the few people on earth who has no idea what I’m so excited about…. Disney+ is here!!!! It’s here! It’s really here!!! So, if you’re still on the fence as to whether you should follow the massive crowd and fork over your hard-earned money for Disney+ keep reading to find out our top reasons you should absolutely get Disney+ right now! No seriously like right, right now! (Then again, finish our article first!)
Like many of you, we have little ones. Well not so little any more I suppose, a 9-year old and an almost 8-year-old. At times I have literally considered getting rid of the televisions all together. It’s soooo hard to find shows nowadays that you can watch as a family. Everything will seem to be going along just fine and then…. WAM!!! CLOSE YOUR EYES CHILDREN!!! WHERE’S THE REMOTE!!! Even the shows that are supposedly family friendly many times have themes or scenes that are a little more than we want our girls to see at this age. Our motto is let ‘em stay young as long as you can; they’ll be all grown up in no time. (Literally in no time! Insert me snotting, crying and rocking back and forth flipping through their baby books.)
Not only is there a max of a PG-13 rating on absolutely every show that will be on Disney+, there’s also a Kids Mode. In addition to controling the rating of the shows your kiddos can watch, you can also limit their screen time! So, if you’re looking for a safe haven where your little ones can get in some screen time, Disney+ has got all the bases covered!
Super Reasonable Pricing
If you’ve been lucky enough to afford a Disney vacation any time in the last few years, you’ve probably noticed that prices keep climbing higher and higher each year. We’ve been going every year for the last couple of years and every year has been more expensive than the last, sadly. I suppose in some heartfelt act of benevolence the decision makers at Disney decided to cut us all a little break. If you were lucky enough to have gotten in on the pre-launch deals and are locked in for the next three years like we are then, Yay You!!!! You got in on a super great deal! If not don’t fret my friend, you can still jump on the bandwagon and still afford to buy groceries and stay on the indoors (hopefully)! Right now, Disney+ will only run you $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year ($5.83 per month). They’re also offering a bundle with Hulu, ESPN, and Disney+ together for only $12.99 for all three services. In my opinion compared to the premium prices we have to pay for all other things Disney, these prices are a steal!
All the Classics
The Vault is open!!! Ya’ll!! One of our favorite things to do is have Disney family movie night with our girlies! Some we own, and others I usually check out for free from our local library. While I’m a huge fan of the library and all the awesome freeness there, there is one caveat to all the freeness…FINES (to the tune of $1 per day for movies)! I’ve been on a roll now for a while and have remained fine free but that’s only because much like one of my favorite episodes of Seinfeld, I am the library movie Nazi! I’m always checking and double checking to make sure the movies we rent are in their designated spot in our home and vigilantly make sure they’re turned in on time. We’ll goodbye to all of that unnecessary stress and worry!!! I’m free!!! FREE!!!
Beauty and the Beast (my favorite), Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins!!! The list goes on and on! They’re all there! And not only those but some classics I’ve always wanted the girls to see but haven’t gotten around to yet: Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Pollyanna, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and Benji!!!! Those are just the movies! I didn’t even mention all the throwback series they have available!
Not only can you veg out on the couch in your favorite snuggly winter pajamas, you can also download the Disney+ app on almost all of your devices. The app works across multiple platforms: iOS, Google Play, Amazon, Xbox One, PS4 and Roku. Guess what else?!?!?! Your subscription comes with unlimited downloads to watch offline on up to 10 devices!!! That’s tablets and mobile phones! Your only limitation is the amount of storage your devices has.
You can download titles again and again and watch them without any internet connection. All you have to do to keep all of your titles downloaded to your devices is make sure one of your devices is connected to the internet and the Disney+ app is opened up every 30 days. So, the next time you end up sitting in the doctor’s office waiting room for two and a half hours with your kiddos like I did last week, at least they can watch a little magic to keep them occupied.
It’s Freaking Awesome!!!
Disney fam!!!! I really hate when things don’t live up to the hype; when something is built up to be lifechanging and when you finally experience it’s just…meh. Well rest assured Disney+ is just as remarkable as everyone made it out to be! The catalog they’ve amassed is insane! You’ve got all your favorite Disney movies and shows at your fingertips, along with all your Pixar favorites too! We watched the Pixar short, Float for our first selection on Disney+ and it was such an amazingly teachable moment for our girls! (If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely check it out!)
Did someone say Marvel???? Yes, Disney+ has that too!!! They’ve got all the Spiderman, Tony Stark and super friends you can handle! The whole Avengers crew is here! Want to watch all one trillion seasons of the Simpsons? That’s on Disney+ too! Are you’re a nature show junky like I am and love watching lions, and tigers, and bears? Oh my does Disney+ plus have you covered! All my Star Wars fans I haven’t forgotten about you! Let me tell you a little secret…… Mandalorian is sooooo good!!! Don’t deprive yourself Star Wars lovers!!! Get Disney+ now!
Did I mention Disney+ is freaking awesome yet??? It is! It sooooo is! It’s the best, most fun purchase we’ve made for our family in a long time. If you’ve been on the fence waiting to see if it would live up to all the hype, wait no longer. It did!
