Disney + is an incredible streaming platform, full of content that both kids and adults will love. Unfortunately, the service is not available anywhere in the world, so those who simply can no longer wait, must be inventive to create an account.
Setting up a Disney + account in a country where the service is not available requires many steps, but it is not impossible. Here’s what you need to do.
Why would you like a US Disney + account?
Disney + was launched in November 2019 and has expanded to many countries around the world so far. The service has proven to be extremely popular, approaching 130 million subscribers by the end of 2021.
However, the company has a lot more to do before it reaches the whole world, so it is understandable why you are trying to get an account if your country is still not among those who received the service. While waiting for a localized version of Disney + may be better since it would be easier to discover everything that is new and coming to Disney + in your region, we can not blame you for wanting to get to all the content faster.
How to access Disney + from anywhere in the world
To access Disney + from another country, you need to do two steps. The first is to find out how to pay for your subscription. This is the most difficult step to take outside the United States. Then you need to create a US Disney + account.
You need to set up a VPN that can make you appear to be in the United States for both steps. Although you can try using a free VPN for your PC, we do not recommend choosing one at random online. These tools can pose a security risk to you and lower your internet connection to a point where streaming anything is impossible. Furthermore, free VPNs are easily picked out by Disney + or other services like Netflix, so you will still be regionally blocked.
We have tested ExpressVPN and CyberGhost, so we know that they work just fine to bypass all walls set up by Disney + or the payment platforms, so it’s a win-win situation.
When you subscribe to a VPN service, you need to download the app to your device and look for a server in the US and connect to it.
Paying for Disney + from outside the US
Although setting up an account is quite simple – and we’ll get into all of that in a moment – it’s a whole different story to pay for it, since Disney + only allows users to get a subscription with a credit card that matches the location of your IP address. There are a few ways you can do this:
- Get a Disney + subscription card and use the code yourself for a new account on the Disney + redemption page.
- Get an Apple Gift Card and use your App Store funds to pay for Disney + on your Apple device.
- Get a Google Play Gift Card and use your money as a payment method on your device.
Sets up Disney + from outside the US
Now that we’ve arranged the payment, the next thing you need to do is create a Disney + account. You must have an active VPN for this section, then turn on the selected VPN, select a US-based server, and connect to it.
Once the connection is established, you can go to disneyplus.com. Choose whether you only want to go for Disney + or the Disney package, including Hulu and ESPN +.
- Enter your email address and check the box to agree to receive newsletters and other promotional information if you wish.
- Then you need to set up a password.
- Then you have to choose whether to pay for the monthly or annual plan and fill in the details. Use one of the payment options you set up in the previous step.
- Follow the instructions to complete the setup of your account.
