For a $14 monthly fee, the Disney Bundle offers access to Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus. While each streaming service can be purchased individually, Hulu and ESPN Plus costs $7 a month, while Disney Plus is $8, those who use the Bundle save a not very much money.
For those who have not already subscribed to any of the included services, signing up for the Disney Bundle is a fairly straightforward process. All you need to do is go to disneyplus.com, enter your email address, and click subscribe.
If you already have a subscription to Hulu and want to upgrade to the Disney Bundle, what happens? Thats where things get tricky. Youll have to do some digging into your account and jump through a few hoops in order to setup your other services. Luckily, weve created a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the process of signing up for the Disney Bundle.
Step 1: Log in to your Hulu account.
Sign in and go to your account.
On the upper-right corner of the screen, click on your name. When the menu opens, scroll down and click on Account.
Step 2: Navigate to the Manage Plan tab and click on Manage Plan.
Click on Manage Plan.
On the left hand side of the screen, you should see your upcoming charges and payment information, and your personal information and email on the right. You will see your current Hulu plan and the blue Manage Plan button next to it. Click it.
If you do not have this option, it may be because you signed up for a Spotify Hulu bundle, meaning you will not be able to upgrade to the Disney bundle on this account.
Step 3: Toggle on the Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus plans.
For $13.99, you can get the Disney Bundle by clicking on the toggle on Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus plans.
Your current plan will be highlighted in a green box, but there are a number of plans you may activate using a toggle switch. These include:
- Hulu with No Ads, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus
- Hulus plans with live TV
Nowclick Review Changes at the bottom of the screen. Make sure everything appears okay, and hit Submit.
Step 4: Activate Disney Plus and ESPN Plus
Click on Activate Disney Plus and ESPN Plus.
After hitting Submit, you'll see a screen that says, Youre all set. The next step is to create logins for the other two services, so here's how to do it. The rest of the Disney Bundle can be done by two methods:
- Hit the blue Activate Disney Plus and ESPN Plus button located right below Start Watching Hulu after the setup process above.
- Or if you miss this step, enter your Hulu account and scroll down to the Activation tab to start the activation process. Select Activate next to Disney Plus and ESPN Plus.
Step 5: In the signup page, enter your email address.
Enter your email and hit accept, then continue.
Clicking the activate button will take you to a Disney Bundle activation page. Enter the email address you used for your Hulu account, and press Accept.
Step 6: Make a password
To save yourself a lot of time, use the same password as your Hulu account.
You will need to create a new password for your account. Save yourself a lot of time by typing in the same password you already have for your Hulu account. Otherwise, you'll have two different sets of passwords, one for Hulu and one for the rest of the Disney Bundle.
Step 7: Begin Streaming ESPN Plus
Click on the little Start streaming ESPN Plus link.
Youll now be sent to a page that says Your Disney Plus account is good to go. In between the text and the big Start streaming Disney Plus button is a small link that says Start streaming ESPN Plus. Click on it.
Step 8: ESPN Plus is now available.
Login to ESPN Plus with the same email and password you used for Disney Plus and Hulu.
Youll now be taken to the ESPN Plus welcome page. Here, it will tell you how to log in with the same email and password you used when signing up for the Disney Bundle. This is the email and password you used for step 6. Click Login and Stream and enter your email and password.
Step 9: Change your ESPN Plus account.
To update your account, enter your name.
A popup will ask you to update your ESPN Plus account with your first and last names. Fill in the necessary information and click Update My Account.
Finally, you will be redirected to the main ESPN Plus screen, but this time it will notify you that you have already signed in. Click the yellow Stream Now button to begin watching.
You should be fine.
Of course, not everyone wants or needs all three streaming services, but it's worthwhile to get the Bundle if you use either of them. Ultimately, you'll save more money by ditching the Bundle if you only watch one of the three channels.
A word of caution and how we test
We run all of our tech tips by ourselves. In this instance, we created a new Hulu account using an email address specifically created for this purpose. We went through the steps to upgrade to the Disney Bundle while taking notes along the way.
We encountered a similar issue while initially attempting to sign up for ESPN Plus. We reached out to Disney, who acknowledged the issue and stated that it has resolved it. We have now retested it again and can confirm that it is working properly.
