Disney+ No Longer Offering 7 Day Free Trials and Right Before ‘Hamilton’ Too


I guess Disney is starting to get wise to people using new user 7-day free trials to watch popular shows and then cancelling. They have just stopped offering the week for free right before the July 3rd debut of ‘Hamilton’ on Disney+.

The Verge posted about the change on their blog when they noticed that it was no longer available in the United States and there was no mention of the 7-day free trial on the streaming site. Of course they reached out to Disney+ and a spokesperson told them :

We continue to test and evaluate different marketing, offers, and promotions to grow Disney+. The service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own.

Now you need to pay for a month to watch anything on Disney+, which would cost $6.99 for the basic Disney+ service that doesn’t include Hulu or ESPN.

Bloggers are just noting that it’s interesting that the free trials end right before the release of ‘Hamilton” and I can understand why. It’s going to be a huge event and with what they paid, I can’t blame them.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 2017-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids!
