Disney+ gives members access to an extensive library of movies and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. Whether you're a new subscriber or a long-time fan, there are several tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your Disney+ subscription.

When it comes to streaming, product protection is often overlooked, but also vitally important. With so many devices and screens to watch on, it can be difficult to keep track of all of them, and to keep them out of harms way. An extended warranty plan can protect all of your streaming devices, so you'll never have to miss out on the latest content.

How can you get the most out of Disney+?

Keep reading to learn some of the best hacks to optimize your Disney+ experience like never before.

Take advantage of Disney+ Day and Disney+ Black Friday deals

If you want to score some deals and discounts on your subscription, wait for Disney+ Day or Black Friday. During these events, Disney+ typically offers promotions like free trials, discounted subscriptions, or bundle deals with other services like Hulu and ESPN+.

Watch out for promotional events like these, and you’re certain to snag yourself a better deal. Also, if you currently subscribe to Hulu + Live TV, you should already have access to the full Disney+ library, you just need to set up your login.

Use Disney gift cards to pay for your subscription

Disney gift cards are a great way to pay for your Disney+ subscription, especially since you can purchase them with your Disney rewards. If you have a Disney rewards credit card, you’ll get 1% in rewards dollars on every card purchase. So, if you use your Disney credit card to pay for bills and other frequent purchases, your subscription will be paying for itself in no time!

Host a group watch party

Disney+ GroupWatch is an innovative virtual watch party feature that lets you connect with up to six friends or family members who also have Disney+ accounts. Not being in the same room or household is no longer an excuse to not catch up on your favorite shows with friends and loved ones.

All you need to do is find the movie or show you want to watch, locate the “GroupWatch” icon, invite up to 6 members, and everyone will get synced to what’s being shown on your screen. You can even react in real-time with emojis, and pause and rewind as needed.

Use parental controls to manage your children's viewing

In today’s digital age, parental controls are extremely important, especially when you can never be sure what type of content is available through various streaming services. Even though Disney is typically geared towards kid-friendly content, there might be certain genres and titles that you don’t want your little ones to see until they get a bit older.

To simplify this, Disney+ allows you to create "kid profiles" which restricts access to certain content and limits browsing options to a selection of child-friendly titles.

Cancel Disney+ without losing your watchlist

There might come a time when you need to cancel Disney+. Whatever the reason may be, it doesn’t mean you need to lose your watchlist. While you might not be able to actually stream the titles on your watchlist, you can still log in and access your collection of titles from the home screen for easy referencing in case they’re available to stream elsewhere.

Share your Disney+ account with family and friends

Some streaming services are becoming stingy with their login limits, but Disney+ lets you have up to seven Disney+ accounts on the same plan, and users can even live in a different household than you. This makes it easier than ever to split the cost of your subscription with any family members or friends that are interested.

Final thoughts

At the end of the day, regardless of what streaming services you pay for, it’s important that you understand how to get the most out of all the features offered.

Install the Mulberry browser extension before you sign up for any new subscriptions so you can get even more rewards for your purchases and view the product protection plans available for your streaming devices. You can even check your eligibility for free product protection.
