Especially with COVID 19 closing all the theaters, this is an excellent app. My problem with this app is, although the premier subscription gives you lots of movies for a month cheaper than a movie ticket just once, is that many movies I and my family would want to go see are premier access only. Now as I said, the subscription is cheaper, but not by a lot, and the theater sells an experience too. Take the new Mulan for example. There is a big hype and controversy, (I am on the side of making it more appropriate for Chinese people groups), but some people don't want to see it for fear of ruining nostalgia. If they choose to risk it, and then realize they have to pay for the premier access, they're gonna cut their losses cause they were on the fence in the first place. It is blatantly obvious that Disney heard the backlash and protests from people about the culture changes, so why make them pay for it? No one will buy a view if they are worried or biased against it from the beginning. However, one thing Disney perfects is how to sell something. They make a huge hype about Mulan, it is something you should definitely see, right? People already pay for the account on the app, and Disney in general gets a huge load of money from every aspect of the economy, so why make it something people have to see, just to turn half the people down because they made it premier access? Basically, this review boils down to: i wanted to watch the new Mulan, and i cannot afford the premier access to view it, and im mad about it. Its petty and immature, but whats the logic besides they want money? As if they don't have enough? I hope the readers of this review can see my perspective. Sorry for the immaturity, bye.
It’s definitely a stable app with pretty good navigation, way better than HBO or Hulu, BUT some very basic things are missing. I’m mostly talking about a “start from beginning” option. There is no easy way to restart a show from the beginning. So if your partner watches something you haven’t on the sane account, or you fall asleep during an episode, you’re forced to start the episode wherever it’s at and quickly click on the beginning of the episode. It’s also not too great at remembering where you left off. Often we’ll finish an episode of clone wars, then try to continue the next day to only replay the last episode I just watched. It’s like some sort of joke considering you can’t restart an episode on your own ♂️♂️.
I would probably give it 3.5 stars ⭐️ if that were a thing but this app still has a ways to go.
You would think Disney being that it focuses on children would provide parental controls but the app does not! They offer you “kids profile” but the child can just change profiles in two seconds and go to main profile which can not be put in kids profile. Also the app does not follow the content restrictions on the device, so even if you have the device set for G only it will play PG13.
Disney please have you app follow the content restrictions on the device and add true content restrictions in the app not just kids profile. Finally add a password to change from a kids profile to adult / main profile. If HBOMax can do it so can Disney!
I absolutely love Disney +! I can watch old Disney shows that I’m too young to have known about, rewatch old favorites, etc. I’m also super happy that The Owl House has finally arrived, but the episode numbering for it is... off. For episode one it says episode two, etc etc. This will probably get fixed before anyone even sees my review, but I just wanted to make sure someone knew, even if it’s unlikely anyone will see this.
And yes, I know it’s just the first day of The Owl House being on Disney +, but a bug is a bug, and bugs have to be reported! (Wait- I don’t think this counts as a bug- whatever you get the point.)
So as u all know disney has been adding shows lately, many people are waiting for some things to be added when disney said they would add them, people are getting impatient and started to get annoyed with the app, please think about others and realize that disney works hard to out these shows on there, covid 19 is a bad thing and disney is trying their best. I am very excited for new shows to be added, I am going to use a show as an example, miraculous ladybug, so this show is extremely popular and disney would make so much money if they put it on there, take your time and please realize that disney works hard.
Disney+ is an fantastic app, but with some flaws. It used to work with my Ipad’s keyboard, but now it doesn’t respond to it at all. I would like it if you could fix that. It would also be great if you could make it so the videos we watch don’t disappear after only three days of not watching it, and make My List able to hold everything we add to it instead of just a few. It would also be great if you could add Disney’s Dog with a Blog, that was one of my favorite shows to watch when it was on TV. Is it so hard to keep what we watch on screen for more than 3 days.
I literally hate this whole app. You’re supposed to be Disney! Your app is the possibly the most frustrating app to ever come across. It never works! What is wrong with it? Seriously. I’ve never ever been this disappointed with any product of Disney until now. This error code keeps saying no Internet connect and never lets me play the movies. I’ve redownload and deleted the app multiple times and it just will not work. I’ve gotten so frustrated to the point where I’m already cancelling my subscription because I can’t even use the app.
I love the Disney content. The old stuff, original content, Marvel and Star Wars. It’s all what I hoped for. The problem, the apps on every single platform struggle. Realistically the apps on IOS, Apple TV, Roku, etc., deserve a one star. The interfacing and menu options are difficult to navigate through. Everyone wants to put their own spin on what Netflix has but just stick to a very simple basic format that’s meant for easy use. I’d only recommend Disney+ to people with better patience than I.
I love the app it has been improved so much since it’s release but I still think you could add more shows to the app like miraculous: tales of ladybug and cat noir, bunk’d, and new seasons of other shows that are already on Disney plus also putting new seasons or movies on Disney plus after like a week of being released would be good and I feel like more people would buy Disney plus if they added the new movies and shows as soon as possible
I’ve had Disney plus since May and it’s AMAZING! I really like how much Disney there is, and Disney+ has so many shows! Like every episode on the Simpsons to all of the clone wars, and even all the Disney channel shows. My only problem is that the fast forward button doesn’t work. When ever I click it I can only fast forward once and then it Goes away. Which is a little annoying but it’s fine. Anyways that’s my review of Disney+ and bye.
