During the Walt Disney Company’s recent Q4 earnings call, the company divulged that the streaming service added over 12 million new subscribers, marking over 162 million Disney+ subscribers in total.

Considering the growing amount of subscribers the streaming service has gained, the Walt Disney Company has recently decided to raise prices, but there’s still time to save money when subscribing!

Currently, a Premium ad-free subscription for Disney+ is $7.99 a month (although when the streaming platform first debuted in 2019, the price was only $6.99). For a whole year upfront, the price is currently $79.99, but a price hike is rapidly approaching.

Starting December 8, a Premium ad-free subscription will cost $10.99 a month, with a full year’s subscription costing $109.99.

However, users can still pay the pre-price hike costs with the Basic subscription plan, which will include advertisements. Not only will the Premium subscription plan give users an ad-free experience, but it will also give users the opportunity to download titles to watch offline.

If you’ve been debating whether a Disney+ subscription is worth it, now’s the time to decide. Subscribing for an entire year before December 8 will give you the same premium, ad-free experience without the price hike.

But starting on December 8, the price hike will go into effect for good. Considering the recent price increases throughout the Disney Parks, it makes sense that the Walt Disney Company is raising prices outside of its theme parks as well.
