Back in March, we began hearing rumblings about a cheaper Disney+ subscription plan. Currently priced at $7.99 for just Disney+, cheaper plans would be available. The catch of course is that ads will be shown on these lower-priced tiers.

Disney confirmed this shortly after and shared that it will be available in late 2022. You can read more about this and see just how much Disney might make with these new subscriptions HERE.

When can we expect to see this happen?

  1. What does Legacy mean in the charts above? I don’t want the bundle, but I prepaid for three years a few months before Disney+ launched. I believe that those three years will be up this coming November.

  2. Question: I pay for Disney+ annually and I don’t renew until well into 2023. Will they honor those contracts? $7.99 to $10.99 is a big increase but I don’t want commercials in my Star Wars.
