It’s been almost two years since Disney announced it was leaving Netflix to launch their own video services, but as they’ve always taught us, “anything your heart desires will come to you.”
Disney+ is the newest streaming service expected to make waves against providers like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Apple TV. But little has been said about the new streaming platform that all of our dreams are made of — until now.
Disney executives gathered in Burbank, California Thursday to bring us some answers.

Competing with streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu, which both run as low as $9.99/month, Disney+ will be available for just $6.99 a month, making it the most affordable on the market. U.S. subscribers are eligible for the annual plan for $69.99 per year, which works out to about $5.83 per month.
Upon the initial announcement that Disney was launching a video streaming service, many parents were unhappy with the potential costs associated. One Twitter user summed the social media reaction best, saying, “If I’m expected to pay for another streaming service, every single Disney movie better [be] on it!”
