The Disney+ launch has finally arrived. Are you ready to enjoy the newest streaming service on the block? With this complete guide to the Disney+ launch, you will be! Read on to learn everything that you need to know about Disney's new streaming service and its big debut, including the Disney+ launch date, launch-day pricing, and how to sign up for Disney+ right now.

When does Disney+ come out?

Let's start with the big question: when can you get your hands on Disney's new streaming service?

The Disney+ launch date was November 12

At midnight on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, Disney+ changed the world of streaming forever. Fans rushed to stream their Disney favorites and new originals like The Mandalorian.

Were you one of them?If not, never fear: You can still sign up and start streaming at your leisure.

How much does Disney+ cost?

Disney+ entered a market that was already home to some really impressive services. So how did Disney+ tackle the stiff competition? In part, with a low price tag!

Disney+ costs just $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year (the annual rate is a 14-buck discount, but requires you to pay for the whole year up front).

That's a launch price that is quite a bit cheaper that the cost of Netflix's most popular plan. On top of that, Disney is offering a bundled deal that includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ all for just $12.99 per month. That's a pretty impressive lineup that saves you about $5 off of the total sticker price for those same services.

Can I subscribe to Disney+ right now?

If the Disney+ price is right for you, good news: You can sign up whenever you'd like.

To do that, just mosey on over to Disney+'s website.

What shows and movies does Disney+ have right now?

Disney+ is going to boast quite a few movies and TV shows in the years to come. Not all of those titles are available right now, but plenty of them are!

On the TV show front, fans are able to enjoy Disney+ originals, including the much-hyped new Star Wars series The Mandalorian. There are also shows from Disney TV networks like ABC, Disney Channel, and National Geographic; among those are titles like Boy Meets World, Kim Possible, One Strange Rock, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. For a more comprehensive view of the shows that you can stream now that Disney+ has launched, check out our complete list of Disney+ shows.

How about movies? Disney+ will eventually be the “forever home” of all of Disney's Pixar, Marvel Studios, Star Wars, and classic animated movies. At launch, the list included all of the Star Wars movies (or all the ones that have come out so far, anyway), animated classics like Lilo & Stitch and The Little Mermaid, Pixar flicks like Toy Story and Finding Nemo, and a couple of Marvel Studios films: Iron Man and Thor: The Dark World. More movies will be arriving as old streaming deals with rivals like Netflix expire.
