Update: June 24, 2020: We have updated this post with word that new Chromebook buyers can once again get three months of Disney Plus for free.


Disney Plus is, without a doubt, the biggest launch in the history of the premium streaming service industry. You can now stream not only tons of classic TV shows and movies from the vast Disney library but several original shows and films as well. The price of Disney Plus is also pretty reasonable. It costs $6.99 a month, or $69.99 for an annual subscription. But is there any way to get Disney Plus for free?

Yes! Here are at least a few ways to get Disney Plus for free. If we discover any other ways to get the service for free, we will add it to this article. We will note that until recently there was a seven-day free trial for all new customers but that has now been discontinued.

1. One year for free for Verizon wireless and internet customers

Verizon Wireless has announced that unlimited wireless customers will be able to get one year of Disney Plus for free. The specific plans that will have the free year of the streaming service are  Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, Above Unlimited, Get More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, and Start Unlimited. The free year is not available for prepaid plans, nor is it available for business wireless plans.

If you are a new Verizon Wireless customer, you can claim your free year of Disney Plus by creating and signing into your My Verizon account. You can do that either on the My Verizon web site or via the My Verizon app. Once you are signed up you should see the Disney Plus promotion. Click on the Get Disney+ selection and proceed through the normal signup process for the service. 

New customers for Verizon’s consumer Fios internet service can also get the free year of Disney Plus. That’s also extended to new and current customers of Verizon’s 5G Home internet service. The bad news? Current Fios internet users are not eligible for the free Disney Plus year.

If you’ve already signed up for Disney Plus and happen to be a Verizon unlimited customer, you can still get that free year. You can enroll for the free offer through Verizon, but it won’t automatically replace your previously purchased subscription. Verizon should send you an email with information about how to manage your pre-purchased Disney Plus subscription.

2. Some US Mobile customers can get free Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle

The US Mobile wireless carrier offers perks for people who sign up for multiple unlimited lines per account. That includes a way to get the free Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle, which normally costs $12.99 a month. You just need to have three unlimited lines for your account, and then you pick the bundle from the choices of streaming services.

3. New Chromebooks buyers get Disney Plus free for three months

Chromebooks are already a huge bargain for people who want a notebook for web browsing, watching videos, and running Android apps. Now Google has launched a limited time offer for anyone who buys a new Chromebook. Those buyers can get three months of Disney Plus for free. Google launched a similar offer earlier in 2020.

Here’s how it works: When you purchase a new Chromebook, you then use it to go to the Chromebooks Offers web page. Click on the “Get perk� option on the Disney Plus selection. You should get a promotional code for the three free months of Disney Plus. Then, on your new Chromebook, just go to the Google Play Store and download the Disney Plus app. You then create your Disney Plus account in the app. When you reach the payment page, type in the promo code in the “Redeem Code� section, and your three months of Disney Plus will begin.

This offer is just for US residents, and just for new Disney Plus subscribers. The deal is for a limited time, but there’s no word on when it will expire. If you are buying a new Chromebook, you might need to get this offer ASAP.

4. Disney park employees can get Disney Plus for free

If you are employed at one of the Disney parks, like Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida, you will be able to claim a free Disney Plus subscription. The offer will be the special bundle that includes Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus in one package. That normally costs $12.99 a month.

Unfortunately, those Cast Members will have to choose between either the free Disney Plus bundle or the Disney Parks Main Entrance Pass. That offer lets employees give free passes to family members and friends to the Disney parks.

5. Delta SkyMiles members can get a two week Disney Plus free trial

If you are a current or new member of Delta SkyMiles, and you travel on certain routes on the airline, there’s good news. You can get Disney Plus for free with a new two week trial period, rather than the standard one-week free trial. You will need to go to a special web page on the Disney Plus site and enter a code for the free trial. This is just for new Disney Plus members, by the way. In addition, Delta passengers will be able to watch selected Disney Plus content on its in-flight entertainment system.
