Disney+ First Impressions And Recommendations

Disney+ was released in the UK on the 24th March, 2020. After preordering it a month before it’s release, I couldn’t wait to start watching.

We have been waiting for so long for Disney+ to release. A lot of other places has had Disney+ for a while now but we had to wait.

Price wise, I paid £49.99 for the year when it was on the early deal but it is currently running at £59.99 per year or £5.99 per month.

You are allowed to have four profiles on one membership so you could even split the costs with a friend if you wanted to share accounts. Personally, Simon and I have one each and then we have a spare for when people come to visit.

First Impressions

At first glance of the homepage, it looks very much like Netflix. It’s pretty easy to navigate and you can find any film, series or short that you want to watch.

When looking on the search tab, Disney have made it super easy to find any kind of thing that you want. Disney own many different things that you would have noticed so you can find things such as Star Wars, National Geographic and Marvel, as well as normal Disney content. They have made it so simple to find each of these kinds of content on the search tab.

The layout is just so neat and beautifully designed. It’s easily navigable too which is great.

One of my favourite things that I noticed is that there is a Watchlist. This means that I can keep all the shows that I want to watch, all in one place.

The one thing that I am kind of disappointed about is that we don’t have full series at once. I would have much prefer to binge watch shows. With certain shows, we get a new episode per week instead of being able to binge watch the whole show at once. I guess that is Disney’s way of keeping people on the app though.

What To Watch


  • Hocus Pocus (1993)
  • High School Musical (2006)
  • Frozen (2013)
  • Inside Out (2015)
  • Monsters, Inc. (2001)
  • Avatar (2009)
  • Big Hero Six (2014)
  • Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)


  • Gravity Falls
  • Hannah Montana
  • Tangled The Series
  • Big Hero 6 The Series
  • Vampirina
  • Wizards Of Waverly Place
  • Ducktales

There’s so many options when it comes to things that you could watch so you’ll never get bored. Overall, I am so happy with Disney+ so far. I can’t wait to watch more.

What have you watched on Disney+ so far? What were your first impressions?

  1. We’ve rewatched a couple of Classics Disney animations (Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland), the hubby’s been having a field day with the Simpsons 🤣.
    Our first new watch was the documentary ‘Free Solo’ which I would definitely recommend.


  2. It seems a lil pricey to buy it outright but it does work out cheap per month! i know that at the moment i barley use my netlfix account and dont tend to watch that many disney films but 100% worth it for a disney lover!

  4. Thanks for sharing a review for Disney Plus! I’ve been really curious about whether or not it’s worth it to subscribe & reading your post has helped a bunch! It is a shame that they don’t put all of the episodes in their series on at once, and that you have to wait weekly, as one of the reasons why I use Netflix is because of this feature. But it would be lovely to be able to watch Disney movies on my phone in bed 😀 I still haven’t watched Big Hero Six and I don’t know why, and Gravity Falls is a show I’ve been eager to check out for a while after seeing the Pop’s from the show 🙂 Happy watching! – Sarah x


  5. My sister has used it more than me at the moment but whenever I get the chance to sit down and watch something, I’ve watched the One Day At Disney documentary, LA Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins Returns and episodes of Kim Possible.

    As much as I do binge-watch series I’m actually okay with the fact that series like The Imagineering Story, The Mandalorian, etc are released weekly because it gives me something to look forward to. Also, I don’t always like watching a show in two days, which often happens, so it spreads it out a bit.
