When Disney Plus came out in 2019, my family was like many others: hooked from day one. With access to so much new and classic Disney-owned content, there was enough to keep us coming back month after month. But it wasn’t until the Disney Plus Bundle that we knew we were really in trouble. Add the full Hulu library and live sports on ESPN Plus to our subscription? It didn’t take much convincing. Other streaming services have come and gone in our household, but the Disney Bundle has stuck around.
Prices may have just gone up a little, but the Disney Bundle is still a great deal for any person or family who wants a good mix of original entertainment, syndicated shows, and live sporting events If you already plan to subscribe to even two of these services, the Disney Plus Bundle can save you more than $100 every year, depending on the bundle plan you choose.
Read on to learn more about the Disney Bundle’s plans and pricing — and find out why it’s the one streaming package my family can’t do without.
Disney Plus Bundle packages and pricing compared
|Bundle Plan||Cost Per Month|
|Disney Plus and Hulu||$9.99|
|Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu bundle||$14.99|
|Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu (ad-free) bundle||$24.99|
|Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu + Live TV bundle||$76.99|
|Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu (ad-free) + Live TV bundle||$89.99*|
With a little quick math, it’s clear users are getting significant savings when they sign up for the Disney Bundle. Customers with separate subscriptions to each of the individual services — Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu — would pay nearly double what it costs to bundle the three.
In addition to base subscription costs, users who subscribe to Hulu + Live TV may choose to add on premium channels like SHOWTIME or features like Unlimited Screens on top of overpaying for Disney Plus and ESPN Plus. The Disney Bundle helps subscribers save money they can later use for add-ons or put those extra dollars toward an ad-free plan.
What to watch with the Disney Bundle
Disney Bundle subscribers can stream thousands of hours of content across the three services, and my family has likely done that in our time as subscribers. On Disney Plus, we enjoy watching the best of Disney, from Star Wars and Marvel to Pixar and Disney classics. Disney Plus is also home to unique originals and exclusive content like “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” “Dancing With the Stars,” Taylor Swift’s “folklore: the long pond studio sessions,” and excellent National Geographic Specials.
Hulu, meanwhile, is home to thousands of TV shows and movies,
from including Hulu Originals like “Only Murders in the Building,” FX series like “The Bear,” and blockbuster films like “The Intern.” We love watching shows like “Abbott Elementary” the day after they air on TV. Plus, Disney Bundle subscribers who have Hulu + Live TV can enjoy over 90 channels of live TV in addition to the robust on-demand library.
Over on ESPN Plus, you can stream can’t-miss sports like March Madness, NFL games, and top soccer matches from all around the world. I regularly tune into out-of-market NHL and MLB games or English FA cup matches. Its library also includes exclusive docuseries like “Peyton’s Places” and “Dana White’s Contender Series.” Subscribers also get access to a premium digital library of ESPN Plus articles, covering the top sports headlines of the day.
