How much does Disney Plus cost in 2023?

Here in Australia, Disney Plus starts at $13.99 per month or $139.99 per year (working out at $11.66 per month) for the Standard plan. That gets you HD streaming on two devices. The new Disney Plus Premium plan will cost you $17.99 per month (or $179.99 per year. ) That gets you 4K streaming on four devices. 

Did the Disney Plus price increase in Australia?

Yes. Disney Plus has gone through a series of price hikes since it first launched in Australia in 2020 at $8.99 per month. The first of those saw the cost of Disney Plus jump to $11.99 per month with the addition of Star (essentially a massive drop of Fox, FX and Hulu content.) Then the price went up again at the tail-end of 2022 when the monthly subscription cost increased to $13.99 per month, citing inflation as the cause. 

The most recent price increase comes courtesy of a plan restructure, which saw Disney split the single plan offer into two: a Standard and Premium plan. The Standard plan still costs $13.99 per month, but drops you to 1080p HD streaming and two devices, whereas the new Premium plan costs $17.99 per month for 4K streaming and four devices.

Did the Disney Plus price go up for everyone?

Yes. The price went up subscribers from the 23rd of February, existing subscribers on a monthly plan from the 23rd of August, and annual subscribers from whatever date their year’s subscription is up. Before it was officially announced, rumours pointed towards a bundle plan similar to the Hulu and Disney Plus package available in the U.S., but every Australian got the upgrade, whether they were interested in Star’s more mature content or not.

Outside of a few originals with broader appeal, most of the content on Disney Plus is aimed at children so it will be interesting to see how many Australians stomach the price jump now that it has kicked in.

FAQs about Disney Plus plans and pricing

Here are the most common questions people ask about Disney Plus in Australia.

While the introduction of Disney Plus Star drove the monthly and yearly price of the streaming service up, Star is included in the single-plan Disney Plus subscription. So you don't need to subscribe to a higher tier or premium plan to access Disney Plus Star. 

No. Although Disney Plus first launched in Australia with a 7-day free trial, that offer was subsequently removed in 2020. 

Yes! At the time of writing, you can bundle a Disney Plus subscription with OnePass for $14.99 per month. OnePass is typically priced at $4 per month, which makes that an overall saving of $3 per month.
