Original review: Dec. 1, 2022

The absolute worst streaming app and website that exists. I'm including Pureflix, College Humor, Twitch, any and all of them. The app doesn't work at all (crashes on starting) on many android phones and it has been this way for years, yet they haven't fixed it. Secondly, HOW IS THERE NO MINIPLAYER OR PICTURE IN PICTURE?? YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, Prime; all the streaming sites have it but this one? How are they such a huge and wealthy company with an awful product, one that is the exclusive source of many shows that millions of people watch?

Third, on desktop you will often just get a black screen instead of the website loading properly. Apparently, this can happen because of ad blockers, VPN's, or for no good reason at all. A company that tries to squash VPN use in particular is unbelievably greedy and doomed to fail. They are used for privacy and many other perfectly legitimate reasons.

Fourth, they took a bunch of very popular shows off of other websites and television stations so they'd have them exclusively, then they don't even let you sign up from many (most?) countries or have a functioning service. I'm honestly shocked that so many people I knew had Disney Plus, can't imagine why anyone would pay for this. Oh, and also, they're now starting to charge you to watch their content WITH ADS. These companies try to lure you in with decent prices or free streaming with ads, then slowly raise them until you're paying as much as you did before but now have to watch ads on top of it. No justification for this.

I wanted to subscribe to Hulu and then learned that I could subscribe as a bundle with my premium Disney Plus account so I did. I was unable to sign in to my account then paid for hulu in addition to save myself the headache. I was not able to sign in- as the account email was already associated with my actual account so I contacted their telephone support. They were unable to help me out let alone speak the english language and I was hung up on. I am canceling my subscription and will just borrow passwords from friends. Nice work guys.

    Horrible customer service. Twice I have contacted support and neither time could they fix the problem. The second time after two multi hour sessions on chat, I told them if they could not fix the problem they should refund my yearly subscription and cancel the account. So they cancelled the account and refunded a pro-rated amount. ** idiots. They just gave up! There is an obvious software problem with updating profiles which apparently, they refuse to fix which gives a minor primary account access to change anything.

    My Disney Plus account hacked and used by bunch of kids half way around the world in a different country. Disney won’t refund any money. They did not even know that it was hacked and won’t even accept it - claiming that they can only see the activity in my account for past 30 days. No refund possible.

    The bundle billing is incredibly confusing. I was using ESPN+ and Hulu before Disney Plus even came out. I then got the bundle to try it out. Disney+ is useless except for kids so eventually I try to cancel. I was being charged across multiple cards for the one bundle for no reason and they couldn't figure out what charge was for what service. I wanted to keep hulu and espn+ but they couldn't figure it out so I canceled them all. Horrible experience. STAY AWAY!!!!

    Worst streaming service ever - continuously buffers and then crashes with error 83 - this happens multiple times a day when TRYING to watch a show. This matter has been reported by numerous people, yet Disney does NOTHING to resolve the quality. Sub-contracting a company in India to run the service on your behalf does not absolve you from fixing your errors or your customer complaints falling on deaf ears. You will follow the same path as Netflix with a downward subscriber trajectory if you don't do something about this. And yes, my device is compatible! Also fix the feature when the next episode starts, that it does not jump out from full screen view + if we had something play and want to rewatch it, we do not have to start the episode at the end and manually click on the start of the episode to rewatch.

    Original review: July 8, 2022

    My son is only 7 years old and he has autism and he absolutely loves the Disney Plus app on our tv. I pay $10 every month just for him to enjoy this app. I also have it downloaded on his tablet so he can watch the app anytime he wants on his tablet. It's easy to navigate. He loves it. I grew up watching Disney. I'm 44 years old and I absolutely love Disney. I love their cartoons. I love the old Disney movies. It's timeless. It's classic. It's wonderful. But Disney has changed. It's changed with the times of this recent trend for homosexuality to be so open. And I'm not. It's been a busy week. I hope you're taking good care of yourself saying that people should not have a choice to do what they want in their life as adults. But my huge serious ginormous concern is Disney is putting homosexual cartoons in front of my little boy's eyes.

    There is a cartoon titled "OUT" AND I NOTICED MY SON HAD BEEN WATCHING IT!!! I clicked on it and it's about a gay man coming out to his family about being in a sexual relationship with another male. How is this appropriate Disney? My son is 7 years old!!!! And I want to know why Disney has this in front of little kid's eyes? Who decided to put this garbage in front of my child's eyes???? I know that I probably won't make a difference or get a response from Disney. But I'm going to be canceling my service and I encourage all other parents to cancel your service if they don't remove the homosexual cartoons from the app. I am also going to be creating a petition and I will be circulating it on Facebook for all parents to sign and then once it's signed and I've reached a thousand signatures or more I'm going to be sending it to Disney to have them remove that Out cartoon from the app. That is not appropriate for a little boy to be watching.

    Keep your sexuality to yourself. I am a heterosexual woman. But I don't make cartoons about it for my son to watch. Disney is supposed to reflect childhood innocence and and being a kid. Never have I ever as a child seen any Disney movie that talked about sex. Or sexuality or Identity or gender or none of that. How confusing is this for children today? I feel so sorry for them. You people need to keep your private business to yourself. And Disney you should be ashamed of yourself. I can tell that new corporate people are running this app now because 50 years ago this would have never been on TV. I think Walt Disney would be appalled!!!! SHAME ON YOU DISNEY PLUS. GET RID OF THE INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT. YOU ARE HARMING OUR CHILDREN.

    American living in Germany. Have always enjoyed Disney movies and subscribed for a taste of home. They get your with the exclusive content but it's a garbage product. The actual streaming service works maybe 20% of the time. In a world where Netflix exists, the comparison is atrocious. Don't bother.

    1st of all, there is no option button to start from beginning, you have to make sure you play the program all the way to the very end if you want to re-watch it. 2nd, If you are a Starwars fan like me (saw the very 1st one, A New Hope in a movie theater), it's a huge middle finger to those fans whose loyalty stood the test of time. Any new series or Starwars movies will only be on Disney + and not in theaters for ALL to enjoy (movies), so fans are being forced to subscribe to a greedy company who doesn't understand the words fan and loyalty. 3rd, limited unoriginal programming. 4th, if you are a parent, then the kids stuff is cool but only for kids who are 10 and younger. 5th, don't agree with the subliminal messaging about hate, racism, gender neutral and homosexuality.

    Disney Plus must be a very desperate company for $$$$. I stupidly took out a one year sub and used it ZERO times - NOTHING to watch if you don't have toddlers. Anyway, I ate that cost but then it auto renewed - I contacted company the same day and they refused refund!!!! Wow - I have never had that happen! Like I am going to let $134 slide. Anyway, I contacted my payment service who will hopefully take care of it. This is an act of desperation by a company trying to be greedy. It will only impact my willingness to subscribe to other services if I have to go through this hassle.
