The best Disney Plus bundles: Hulu, ESPN+, Star, and global offers compared

For those eager to save as much money as possible (which is entirely fair enough, considering the cost of living crisis we’re facing), Disney Plus bundles will be greatly appreciated. Besides cutting costs long-term, they help fill a niche that Disney isn’t always able to by itself.

Let’s spell this out with an example. The USA-exclusive Disney Plus bundle with Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month (opens in new tab) is $6 less than buying each one separately, and as well as getting you triple the amount of content for the same price as a Standard HD month of Netflix, these services complement each other beautifully. Disney is ideal as a family-friendly option with the likes of Marvel and Star Wars, Hulu is home to drama, and ESPN brings the sport. That means they theoretically provide something for everyone in your household, so it’s a well-rounded package when taken as a whole. And seeing as a standard Disney Plus sign-up with 4K content costs $7.99 a month, it’s not too big a step up for the amount of content you’re getting either (by comparison, a 4K Netflix account on its lonesome will set you back $17.99p/m).

Want to see which deals are available in your area? Curious about whether those offers are worth it? We’ve put together a global guide on Disney Plus bundles to help you find the best-value package with as many – or as few – extras as you like.

Disney Plus bundles – USA

(opens in new tab)

Disney Plus, Hulu, ESPN Plus | $13.99 per month (opens in new tab)
This is comfortably the best Disney Plus bundle you can get at the moment. As well as Disney Plus, you’re receiving Hulu and its mature dramas to go with the sports of ESPN Plus. That provides something for the whole family, and you’re saving $7 per month (or $84 a year) too compared to paying for each service individually.

Disney Plus, Hulu (no ads), ESPN Plus | $19.99 per month (opens in new tab)
Like the Disney Plus bundle above, this offer throws ESPN Plus and Hulu into the mix – but there are no Hulu ads to wrestle with. Considering how distracting those can be, it proves its worth pretty fast. And don’t worry if you’re unsure about investing right away. You can upgrade to this package at a later date if you opt for the cheaper option first.

Disney Plus (1-year bundle) | $79.99 at Disney Plus (opens in new tab)
If you’re not fussed about Hulu and ESPN Plus, this is the best Disney Plus option around. You’re saving over 15% compared to paying monthly, and the annual offer gets you 12 months of Disney for the price of 10. You won’t find a cheaper long-term deal.

Disney Plus gift card (1 year) | $79.99 at Disney Plus (opens in new tab)
Buying for friends or family? This gift card is surprisingly good value – you’re essentially getting 12 months for the price of 10. What’s more, digital delivery on a date of your choosing makes timing this gift for special occasions simple no matter whether that’s a while away or today. Please note: this can only be activated by the recipient if they have not already been a Disney Plus subscriber.

Just want Disney Plus on its own and not bundled with any extras? The rolling one-month subscription sits at $7.99 per month (opens in new tab), and you’re free to cancel at any time you like (or upgrade to the Disney Plus bundles above if you wish). Now that the Disney Plus free trial has been axed, it’s the next best option for those wanting to save cash.

Disney Plus bundles – UK

(opens in new tab)

Disney Plus + Star | £7.99 per month (opens in new tab)
Although there aren’t any major Disney Plus bundles in the UK right now, you do get the Star add-on with standard monthly memberships (and before you ask, no, there isn’t a cheaper option without Star). Alongside everything Disney Plus has to offer, this gets you a bunch of content for an older crowd like Family Guy, 24, Grey’s Anatomy, and Alien. Don’t worry about the kids getting access to all that, though; it’s easy to set up parental controls.

Disney Plus + Star (1 year) | £79.90 one-off fee (opens in new tab)
If you’re in full ‘take my money’ mode and are ready for a year of Disney Plus, you can actually save over 15% by paying for a year upfront. It basically gets you 12 months for the price of 10 so is arguably better value than any other offer right now.

Disney Plus + Star gift card (1 year) | £79.90 at Disney Plus (opens in new tab)
Want an easy present for a loved one that adores Disney? This is probably the biggest no-brainer out there. Because it can be scheduled for delivery at any time you like to an email address of your choosing, it’s perfect as a last-minute gift or a long-planned present. However, remember that it can only be used by new subscribers – existing Disney Plus members won’t be able to redeem the gift card.

O2 + Disney Plus | Free 6-month Disney Plus pass with O2 (opens in new tab)
Thinking of getting a new phone or SIM only deal (opens in new tab)? If you sign up with O2, the network will set you up with a free six-month Disney Plus subscription (worth £48). And if you’re already an O2 customer, you could still be eligible if you upgrade your contract. However, you might want to weigh up that cost versus the value of the sub.

Disney Plus HotStar bundles – India

(opens in new tab)

Disney Plus with Hotstar bundle (Premium) | ₹299 per month (opens in new tab)
Disney Plus Hotstar bundles are the only way to get Disney Plus in India. However, you’re receiving a lot of content here because you’re paying for the enhanced Premium edition of Hotstar. That means you’re getting multiplex and new Indian movies, Hotstar specials, no ads, and Full HD streaming with Dolby 5.1 audio to accompany your Disney Plus access. Content is available in English or with several dubbed options, too.

Disney Plus with Hotstar bundle (Premium) | ₹1499 a year (opens in new tab)
This bundle is the same as the Premium bundle above, but paying for it annually at ₹1499 is actually a big money saver. Compared to the ₹299 monthly fees, you’re saving a massive ₹2088 (essentially getting you seven months of Disney Plus Hotstar for free). That makes it the best option for value.

Disney Plus with Hotstar bundle (VIP) | ₹399 a year (opens in new tab)
The cheaper VIP tier is only available as an annual subscription. However, even though it’s very affordable, we’d proceed with caution. Compared to the Premium tiers, you only get dubbed Disney Plus movies, you lose ‘English shows and Disney Plus originals’, can only watch on one screen instead of two, and get video quality limited to standard HD instead of Full HD. Oh, and audio is Stereo only.
