A new limited time deal drops the price of a Disney Plus Basic subscription down to just $1.99 a month for the first three months. At this rate, those interested in Disney Plus have a good way to test out the service over a longer period of time at a cheaper price than usual.


Disney Plus Basic is the cheapest way to subscribe to just Disney Plus. For those that want an upgraded experience, including ad-free viewing and the ability to download titles, there’s the Disney Plus Premium plan.

Normally, signing up to Disney Plus Basic (With Ads) costs $7.99 a month. However, Disney Plus has temporarily dropped the price down to just $1.99 a month for the first three months. This deal results in a saving of $6 each month, or $18 over the course of the three discounted months.


As mentioned, this is a limited time deal, so new subscribers only have up until September 20, 2023 to take advantage of the offer. For reference, this promotion is not just for new subscribers but eligible returning subscribers as well.

As a reminder with deals like this, auto-renewing is in effect. As a result, subscribers will automatically be charged the usual higher rate after the third discounted month. The only way to avoid this happening is to cancel the subscription before the end of the last promotional month.

In terms of content, some of the newest titles to be added to Disney Plus include The Little Mermaid, Ahsoka season 1, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, with Elemental and Lang Lang Plays Disney also due to be added to the catalog later in September.
