How to cancel Disney+

Home to everything Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and more, the long-awaited Disney+ streaming platform took the world by storm in November 2019. With multiple subscription options available, including bundles with ESPN, Spotify, and Hulu, as well as hundreds of hours of movies and shows to view, there’s plenty to love about the service. That being said, not every streaming membership is meant to last forever. Whether you’re not a fan of what the platform has to offer, don’t want to continue paying, or are sick of the glitches, you’re reading this how-to because you’ve decided to part ways with your Disney+ subscription.

Whatever the reason, canceling Disney+ is just as easy as signing up. If you really want to cancel, you’re only a few clicks away.

After you cancel Disney+

You’ll be able to access Disney+ until your current subscription period ends. If you had the seven-day trial, you’d still get your full seven days. Otherwise, you’ll have access until your next billing date, at which time your subscription will be canceled. 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 that account. 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. 

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 Disney+ 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.
