Albert and Francine asked 2 years ago
Hello everyone, I hope someone can help us.
We are about to do a long trip to Europe with our toddler boy and we’re trying to figure out the best way to keep him busy during the flight.
He loves Cars (1, 2 and 3!) and we thought we could subscribe Disney+ and then download them on our laptop, is it possible?
Many thanks!

Hi guys!

Let’s see if we can help…

Disney Plus is currently one of the most popular streaming platforms in the world, especially in Canada. This is because it offers hundreds of shows, movies, and documentaries perfect for families and people of all ages.
There are many benefits you can enjoy when you have an account on Disney Plus; one of these includes offline streaming. This means that you can download multiple movies, TV shows, and documentaries on various devices with a Disney Plus account. 

Hence, just like Netflix and Hulu, Disney Plus gives you the chance to watch all of your favourite movies and shows from Star Wars, Disney, and Pixar while you are on the go when you don’t have Wi-Fi.
If you don’t already have an account on Disney Plus, it might be time to get one. Disney Plus will cost you CDN$ 11.99 per month, but it offers no trial periods. However, you can be a member of Disney Plus for one month and see how you like it. You can cancel your membership at any time without any additional charges. This means that you can stream and download unlimited movies, shows, and documentaries on multiple devices on Disney Plus during your one-month period. 

All movies and shows you download on Disney Plus are saved in the “Downloads” folder, which you can access when offline. This can be found in the App’s bottom menu. Besides adding more shows and movies to this folder, you have complete control over deleting them as well.

How to Download Movies on Disney Plus

Whether you have an Android or Apple device, you can easily download movies on your Disney Plus App. However, this option is not available for a web browser or other devices. The process for downloading movies and TV shows is the same regardless of whether you are downloading on your Android or Apple phone.

Here are the quick steps you need to follow if you want to download movies and TV shows on this fantastic streaming platform:

  1. Open the Disney Plus app on your device
  2. Tap the “Home” tab to select a movie or click on the magnifying glass icon to search for a specific movie
  3. Select the movie you want to download
  4. There will be a download option right next to the “watch” button
  5. Click on the download option 
  6. When the arrow changes into a loading icon, it means that your movie has begun downloading
  7. Once the movie has begun downloading, it gets added to your Watch List
  8. Enjoy offline streaming with your movie! 

How to Download TV Shows on Disney Plus

The process of downloading TV shows on Disney Plus is very similar to that of downloading movies. The only difference is that if you want to download the entire season, you will have to go on the show’s main page and tap on the download button next to the season. If you want to download one episode, tap on the download button next to that particular episode title. 
Once they are downloaded, you can enjoy offline streaming!
