Disney Plus is one of the most popular streaming services around, hosting iconic brands like Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars. But Disney Plus isn't the company's only streaming service.

ESPN+ and Hulu are both Disney-owned and can be packaged with Disney Plus as part of a discounted bundle. The bundle saves you about $11 a month compared to the regular combined price of all three subscriptions. 

Together, the three services give members a well-rounded assortment of programs to watch. Hulu helps supplement Disney Plus with tons of network shows and a bigger library of original series and movies geared toward adults. Meanwhile, ESPN+ adds live MLB, NHL, and UFC matches to the mix, along with other sports programming. 

Right now, the bundle is available in a few different tiers, but some changes are coming in December. Here's everything you need to know about all of the current and upcoming Disney Bundle options.

How much does the Disney Plus Bundle cost?

The bundle with Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu is available in a variety of packages, with prices currently starting at $14 a month. That said, slight adjustments to pricing and package options are coming on December 8 when Disney Plus launches its new ad-supported tier.

Here's a full breakdown of Disney Plus Bundle prices

*This plan will only remain available for members who sign up before December 8.

How to sign up for the Disney Plus Bundle

If you live in the US, signing up for the Disney Plus Bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ is as simple as visiting the Disney Plus website and selecting the bundle you want. 

After entering your email address and payment information you'll be able to activate your account on each service. You can use the same account information across each platform, but you will need to access each service's app separately.

Can current subscribers upgrade to the Disney Bundle?

Yes, current subscribers to Disney Plus, Hulu, or ESPN+ can upgrade any of their existing subscriptions to the bundle. You just need to sign up for the Disney Bundle using the same email address you have on file for your current membership. Disney will then adjust the bundle cost to account for your existing subscription fees.

Keep in mind, however, members who have existing subscriptions through special promotions — like Hulu via Spotify's Student Plan — are not eligible for an upgrade to the bundle. 

Can I bundle Disney Plus and Hulu without ESPN+?

Yes, you can get a discounted bundle with just Disney Plus and Hulu without having to sign up for ESPN+. Hulu subscribers can currently add Disney Plus for just $3 a month, which is $5 off the regular price.

With this package, Hulu (Ads) with Disney Plus comes out to $10 a month, and Hulu (No Ads) with Disney Plus comes out to $16 a month.

To get this deal, you must sign up for Hulu first. Eligible Hulu subscribers can then navigate to their account page on the Hulu website to activate the Disney Plus add-on.

The discounted Disney Plus add-in is only available to Hulu members who are directly billed by Hulu. Subscribers who already have Disney Plus, the Disney Bundle, or Hulu's ESPN+ add-on are not eligible.

Are there ways to get the Disney Bundle for free?

Verizon is currently covering the cost of the Disney bundle for subscribers with a Verizon unlimited 5G Play More or 5G Get More wireless plan. The free Disney Bundle includes Hulu's ad-supported plan.

If you want to subscribe to the ad-free Disney bundle through Verizon, you'll get a monthly credit dropping the price from $20 to $6 plus tax where applicable.

Does Hulu + Live TV include the Disney Bundle?

All of Hulu's live TV plans now come with Disney Plus and ESPN+ automatically. Live TV subscribers don't have to pay extra or adjust any options in order to get the bundle.

To sign up for the Disney bundle with Hulu + Live TV you simply need to visit the Hulu + Live TV page.
