Disney Plus can't compete with Netflix when it comes to original content, but its affordable price and iconic franchises make it a great value for families

  Disney Plus launched in November 2019 and has amassed more than 50 million subscribers. A monthly subscription costs $6.99 a month, while an annual plan costs $69.99 a year.
