The New Disney+: How Good Is It for Travel?

Last Updated: 

Disney+ is a great streaming service for new and existing fans of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic shows. It has a lot of kid-friendly content, making it even more awesome for parents who travel with children.

The New Disney+: How Good Is It for Travel?


First of all, you can watch Disney+ from 4 devices at once through one single account. That means you can stream a TV show through your phone, a movie through your smart TV, another movie through your tablet, and another TV show through your laptop all at the same time. A small family can easily share a single account without anyone having to snatch TV remotes—those days are pretty much long gone.

If you're traveling and don't have access to the internet, no need to worry! You can download movies and TV series for your enjoyment on the go, which will make flights more bearable for you and your family, and keep the kids in line.

There is also an option to create a kid's profile to ensure your children stay within the realm of kid-friendly content. To create a kid's account:

  1. Hover or click on your profile icon
  2. Click on Add Account
  3. Choose a profile icon (optional), and enter a profile name
  4. Turn on Kid's profile
