When I heard about Disney+ I wasn’t sure what I thought. Another streaming service? I’m going to go broke! After a bit of snooping about Disney+ here’s what surprised me most.
Before we get started, if you love Disney you should try some of the totally adorable, super easy, themed treats we have. Easy Olaf Marshmallow Pops, Olaf Quesadilla Dinner, Minnie & Mickey Mouse treats, and Monsters, Inc Guacamole are some favorites.
What You Need to Know About Disney+
Prices for the new streaming service will be announced in April 2019 and it will officially launch in late 2019. Some people are speculating that it will cost less than Netflix.
And speaking of Netflix, Disney will no longer allow their content there. That means if you want Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and more, you’ll have to consider Disney+.
There will be plenty of new content for everyone, including a new Star Wars series, a few new Marvel series, and a new Monsters, Inc series.
Additionally, it will be the only place you’ll be able to stream their new movies once they’ve opened in theaters. Don’t expect them right away, though. They’ll have to make the rounds in theaters first.
What has hardcore fans really excited is that Disney plans on releasing movies from their vault on Disney+.
The Disney Vault List
Once a new Disney film has been released and enjoyed by kids and parents everywhere, the movies are placed in the “Disney Vault” where they stay hidden away for 7 – 10 years before being re-released.
Why? Some people say Disney wants to create a feeling of scarcity around their movies. Some say Disney puts them away because every 7 years there is a new crop of kiddos ready to love them. Who knows? All I know is that Disney lovers are super psyched that they’ll be able to watch them on Disney+.
There is no official list from Disney of the movies currently in the vault. There are ways that fans say they figure it out, but I don’t trust my sleuthing skills.
Here is the list of films in the vault as per Disney Fandom.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Peter Pan (1953)
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
The Jungle Book (1967)
The Little Mermaid (1989)
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
The Lion King (1994)
