Disney Plus is going up in price in October. Specifically, the cost of the Disney Plus Premium plan will increase to $13.99 a month. At the same time, the Hulu (No Ads) plan will increase to $17.99 a month and ESPN Plus will increase to $10.99 a month.


When Disney announces price increases, it tends to announce multiple increases at the same time. That’s also the case today as the cost of a Hulu Live TV subscription is also set to increase in October, along with these other increases.

In terms of Disney Plus Premium, the increase to $13.99 a month will begin on October 12, and results in a $3 a month increase compared to the current $10.99 cost. While the cost of Premium is increasing, there’s no change to the price of the Disney Plus Basic (With Ads) plan.


Disney Plus does also offer an annual plan option and that’s due to increase as well. Starting from October 12, the cost of the Disney Plus Premium annual plan will increase to $139.99, up from the current $109.99 rate.

A similar situation is happening with Hulu. Beginning October 12, the cost of Hulu (No Ads) will increase to $17.99, resulting in a $3 a month price increase. Again, similar to Disney Plus, the price of the Hulu (With Ads) plan won’t increase in price. Unlike Disney Plus, Hulu doesn’t offer an annual option for its No Ads plan.

The cost of ESPN Plus will also increase on October 12. The monthly plan will increase to $10.99 a month (up from $9.99) and the annual plan will increase to $109.99 (up from $99.99)


With changes to Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu, the Disney bundle options are also increasing in price. The Trio Basic bundle will increase from $12.99 to $14.99 a month, while the Trio Premium bundle will increase from $19.99 to $24.99 a month.

Here’s a recap of all of these changes:

PlanPrice (Old)Price (New)
Disney+ Premium (monthly)$10.99$13.99
Disney+ Premium (annual)$109.99$139.99
Hulu (No Ads)$14.99$17.99
Trio Basic$12.99$14.99
Trio Premium$19.99$24.99
ESPN+ (monthly)$9.99$10.99
ESPN+ (annual)$99.99$109.99

For those that are happy to bundle to save on the cost, Disney did also confirm that it will begin offering a new No Ads bundle ahead of these price increases. Starting September 6, it will be possible to sign up to a Disney+ Premium and Hulu (No Ads) bundle for $19.99 a month.

Considering Hulu (No Ads) will be increasing to $17.99 a month and Disney Plus Premium to $13.99 a month, the ad-free bundle results in a saving of $11.99 a month when compared to paying separately for both subscriptions.
