How to cancel your Disney Plus subscription

So you've ripped through the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, been to that galaxy far, far away several times, and devoured all the Pixar films, all 34 seasons of The Simpsons, and everything else Disney Plus has to offer. Now, you've decided that you're done. Or maybe you just want to save a little money for a bit.

Whatever your reasons are, if it's time to delete your Disney Plus account, the process is relatively straightforward. Actually, the only thing that will make the steps different for each user is which devices you used to create a Disney+ account in the first place.

We've put together this guide to teach you how to cancel your Disney Plus subscription, as well as your entire Disney account. Here's how.

How to cancel via iOS or iPadOS

Use these instructions if you signed up using the Disney+ app for Apple-branded devices.

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iOS device. Then, select your Name/Apple ID.

Step 2: Choose Subscriptions.

Step 3: Select Disney+. Then, choose Cancel subscription.

After you cancel Disney+

You’ll be able to access Disney+ until your current subscription period ends.

Looking for a refund to your credit card? Unfortunately, Disney+ doesn't offer them for partially used billing services, but at least you won't see a cancellation fee.

Even after canceling, your overall Disney account (which the site creates when you sign up for Disney+ and is used across all of Disney’s websites) will still be active. There’s no problem with this account still existing, though you’ll still get promotional emails sent to it. If you want to cancel your Disney account altogether, do the following:

Step 1: Go to Disney’s Privacy Controls page.

Step 2: Sign in using the link under Manage your registration account.

Step 3: This page will allow you to change your notification preferences, like what emails you receive and how frequently you receive them. Or you can completely cancel your Disney account. 

Do note that deleting your Disney account won’t automatically cancel your Disney+ subscription, but it will make it impossible for you to log in to Disney+.

So if you’re trying to close out your entire Disney account, end your Disney+ subscription before you cancel your personal Disney account. Otherwise, you’re going to have to give Disney’s customer service department a call to sort things out. 

Now it's time to see what TV shows Netflix is currently offering.

Disney already knows if you’re sharing your streaming account

Along with a number of price increases, the other big news to come out of Disney's (fiscal) third-quarter earnings report was that the company is taking a serious look at account sharing — password sharing, if you will — and will begin to crack down on it in 2024.

In other words, it's going to do what Netflix has done, and it's time to pay up. But we don't yet know exactly what that will look like.

Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+ get new pricing schemes this fall
Disney Plus on Roku.

Disney+ — and along with it, fellow Disney-owned streaming services Hulu and ESPN+ — have never had the simplest of pricing schemes. And this fall they're going to get a little more complex -- and more expensive. And more countries are getting more options.

First up: Canada and some European nations will get the ad-supported option for Disney+ starting November 1, 2023. It'll run $8 in the former, and 5 pounds or 6 euros in the latter. Current subscribers will stay in the ad-free plan unless they actively decide to switch.

What is Disney Plus: plans, price, and everything else you should know
The Disney Plus app interface on a smart TV.

Despite launching in November of 2019, Disney Plus has become a leading stalwart in the streaming service space. Boasting one of the best libraries of movies and TV shows around -- including some of the best original series from the likes of the MCU and Star Wars franchises -- Disney+ has shot up to 129.8 million subscribers worldwide as of February 2022. That puts it toe to toe with the likes of Netflix, Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, and others.

Despite a library that isn't quite as large as Netflix, Disney+ makes up for it in quality. It's the exclusive streaming platform for a significant portion of Disney's massive content archive and the only place to see new originals like Andor, Obi-wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian, Hawkeye, and WandaVision. Plus, with content from National Geographic and deals that can also net you Hulu and ESPN+ for one price, Disney+ is a formidable service.
