Disney Plus is home to some of the best family-friendly movies and TV shows, but how many devices can be using your login at once?

How many people can watch Disney Plus at once?
Disney Plus subscribers can stream across up to 4 devices at the same time, allowing simultaneous viewing on most smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, laptops and gaming devices. This depends on the plan you've signed up to - the Standard with Ads (£4.99 per month) and Standard plan (£7.99 per month) allow streaming on two devices, while Premium subscribers can stream on four devices at once (for £10.99 per month).
This means you could be binging the latest family drama from The Kardashians on one device, while the kids get stuck into the adventures of Bluey and family or watch their favourite Marvel superheroes save the world on another device, all at the same time – making it ideal for the whole family.

Does Disney Plus offer a family plan in the UK?
While Disney Plus doesn't exactly offer a family plan option, you can set up as many as 7 different profiles on one account. You can access these on up to 10 different devices and stream on 4 of the devices simultaneously, so you can watch at the same time as other users without disturbance. This means each user can manage their own profile settings and can tailor their content to their interests and likes. Each profile will also receive personal recommendations based on their watch history.
Disney Plus also includes parental control features, which can be set up for each profile. This allows parents to set limits on what children are watching to ensure a safe experience. All Disney Plus content has a rating to reflect the age recommendation and you can choose restrictions so it won’t show content higher than the profile’s rating when browsing.
