Here’s how to lock in Disney+ at its lower price and get a year for free

If you’re planning to subscribe to Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+ — and if you’re a fan of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, or any of the other properties that Disney owns, you really should consider it — you need to take a look at this limited-time deal.

From now through Monday, September 2, you can sign up for three years of Disney+ at a discounted rate. Basically, the deal drops Disney+’s yearly subscription price from $70 to $47 a year, saving you 33% on your annual subscription fees. That’s essentially an entire year of Disney+ for free.

All you need to do is sign up for Disney’s D23 fan club, which is free to join, and commit to three years of Disney+ upfront. That first part is easy: Simply head on over to the D23 sign-up page, choose the Become a D23 General Member option, and fill in the appropriate information (if you want to sign up for a premium D23 membership, that works too, although those get rather expensive). The Disney+ pre-order information will soon appear in your account and you’ll be able to lock in the deal.

Just act fast. The Disney+ deal expires after Labor Day, September 2, and interested parties need to be registered members of the D23 fan club by the end of the day on Sunday, September 1.

If you run into trouble, be patient. As of this writing, the D23 website has been overwhelmed by bargain hunters, and some customers report that not everything is working smoothly. Disney will most likely have any issues sorted out soon — and it must be pretty pleased by how eager people are to watch things like The MandalorianCaptain Marvel, and every single episode of The Simpsons. Yes, that’s right: All of them.

Disney+ debuts on November 12, 2019, and will be the exclusive online home for the entire Disney catalog, including hard-to-find animated movies, all of the studio’s newest feature films, and original live-action TV series based on Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some of which won’t arrive until your three-year commitment is almost up.
