*UPDATED September 23rd 2019 with new offers*

I am not able to offer technical assistance with any of the below offers.

The countdown to Disney+ continues. But if you hurry, you can order EARLY! Here’s the scoop on what’s new and how to sign up for Disney Plus right now and join the Founders Circle for free.

If you’re like me you were stalking the D23 Expo and having total FOMO at all of the latest and greatest news, know we were in this together. If you’re even more like me you may have been crying at the fact that attendees got to be the first to sign up for Disney+ and even join the Founders Circle. Months away from its November 12th debut! But have no fear, you too can sign up to be one of the first people to subscribe to Disney+ and this early access is free PLUS (see what I did there?) you can also get 33% off the subscription for 3 years. Meaning you can preorder Disney+ for less than $4 a month (normally $6.99)! But how do you sign up for Disney Plus and join in on the Founders Circle? Here’s the scoop…

How to Sign Up for Disney+ for a discount

D23 is the ultimate Disney fan club. I’ve been a member since 2015. You can gain access to this early sign up by becoming a D23 member and guess what? The general membership level is FREE! So yea. Click on over and get your D23 membership then log in to unlock the exclusive deal on Disney+! You should get an email notification but if not, head over to your account information and it’ll be there. Any questions? Let me know!

*UPDATE* This deal has expired, but I’m going to continue to update this post with new deals. Right now there are TWO.

Disney Visa Card Holders

Disney Visa cardmembers are receiving an offer in the mail with details on how you can save on your Disney+ subscription. If you currently are Disney Visa cardmember, then you can enjoy this exclusive discount and become a Founders Circle Member of Disney+.

Currently, cardmembers have a choice of two options:

  • A 2 Year Disney+ subscription for a total of $119 plus taxes, which will save you $20.
  • A 3 Year Disney+ subscription for a total of $169 plus taxes, which will save you $40.

In order to be eligible, you must use your Disney Visa Card to purchase your Disney+ subscription.

Disney Destinations

Disney Destinations is a free Disney Parks and Disney Vacation planning tool. You can subscribe for free and use the MyDisneyExperience website when planning your next Disney trip. Or just sign up and you *should* get an email within shortly with this deal:

Don’t care about Disney Plus discounts and ready to sign up early anyway? You can do that now here.

What is on Disney plus?

Now a little bit about content… My friend Carly was at the D23 Expo and has a complete list of what they’ve announced to be offering so far. If you think it’s every single Disney movie and TV show ever made, you may be a little disappointed. Not to say that won’t ever happen (perhaps in some kind of rotation). But there are 500 movies slated to be in the starting lineup. I took a peek at the list and quickly compared it to the complete list of Disney movies and noticed some like The Jungle Book, Cinderella, Incredibles II, the Emperors New Groove, Beauty and the Beast and Brave off the list.

*update!* According to a free trial of Disney+ in the Netherlands all of the animated Disney movies are there. Here’s my new post about the updated list speaking specifically to what movies are on Disney+ (and TV shows too).

Why Sign Up ?

You can read all of the details about parental controls, kids mode, and the very wide selection of offerings on CNET. But coming from a huge Disney movie collector, and someone vehemently against monthly subscriptions, I thought I’d share the benefit for our family that may help your decision.

How to sign up for Disney+ streaming service.

For reference, our personal Disney movie library contains 130 Disney Animated movies and Pixar films. However I still signed up as a Founding Member because of the original content that’s included such as the live action version of Lady and the Tramp, and a hilarious-sounding series called Forky Asks a Question. It’ll also be the only streaming service that will play host to Disney’s 2019 theatrical releases like Toy Story 4, Aladdin, and Frozen 2. I imagine more live action Disney movies as well as animated films, classic and original will make their way there through the years.

We are counting down over here and can’t wait! Stay tuned for more updates, movie checklists, reviews and fun.

Want to kick start your Disney+ fun with a fun checklist? Snag your free one and keep track of your favorite live action Disney movies with this one.

Jennifer says:

There are a couple other deals with a (free) Disney vacation club membership and Disney Visa cardholders. I’ll update the post with this and how to do a general preorder.

Arleen says:

Hi! So I did my D23 membership but the only thing I see is a member number and nothing else. Could you provide a little more guidance?

Jennifer says:

So it could take up to 24 hours to show up. But this specific deal has expired. There are a couple other deals with a (free) Disney vacation club membership and Disney Visa cardholders. I’ll update the post with this info!

Jason says:

I got my account on sept 1st and hit redeem when they sent me the link and now it’s telling me I have to pay the 6.99 a month. What happened to less than 4 bucks for 3 years? I even emailed them and their reply was the discount has already ended?

Jennifer says:

Did you pay when you preordered? If you preordered when you set up your account then you’re paid for the first 3 years already. It’ll go to $6.99 after that.
