How to Gift a Disney Plus Membership

You can purchase Disney Plus Gift Cards directly from the Disney+ website. When you purchase a one-year gift subscription, you’ll be asked to provide an email address for your recipient, choose a delivery date, and be given the option to write a personal message.

Then, on the chosen date, Disney will send an email to your recipient, informing them that it is a gift from you and with instructions on how to redeem their gift subscription. Again, remember that these gift cards are for new subscribers only, so make sure the recipient isn’t already signed up for the streaming service.

You’ll pay for their first year of Disney Plus when purchasing the gift subscription. After one year, they will have the option to add their own payment information and continue their subscription.

Can you get physical Disney Plus gift cards?

This can be a little tricky if you’re hoping to give someone a plastic Disney Plus gift card. Physical cards are hard to find in stores and are mostly available in some Disney Stores and Disney parks in North America. This will save you the trip of opting for a digicode.

It might not seem as special to have a map to hold in your hands, but at least digital maps reduce waste and pollution. If you plan to give Disney Plus to a youngster who doesn’t yet have an email address, you can send it to the parents and ask them to print the card on paper.
