Here is a guide on how to watch Disney Plus on Hulu.

What Is Disney Plus?

Disney Plus (also referred to as Disney+) is a streaming service owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company. It launched in November 2019 and has quickly become one of the most popular streaming platforms, with over 100 million subscribers worldwide.

Disney Plus offers instant access to a huge catalog of Disney movies and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and 20th Century Studios. It has a growing library of new and exclusive Disney+ original content as well. Popular originals include The Mandalorian, WandaVision, and Loki.

Disney Plus is also the exclusive streaming home for newer theatrical releases from Disney studios. Movies like Frozen 2, Onward, and Soul are available to stream on Disney+ on the same day they are released on Blu-ray.

Open the Hulu app on your smartphone or tablet. Browse to find a Disney Plus movie or show you want to download.

  • Taking your Disney Plus favorites on the go is simple with downloads. You get full access even when offline.

User Profiles

Disney Plus and Hulu both offer great personalization through user profiles. This allows different family members to have their own watching history, recommendations, saved shows, parental controls, and more.

User profiles work seamlessly with the Disney+/Hulu bundle too. Here’s an overview:

  • Set up distinct Disney Plus user profiles for each family member when signing up. Add profile pictures for each.
  • These profiles automatically carry over to Hulu so everyone has the same customized experience in both apps.
  • Personalized content hubs, watch lists, and viewing history are kept separate for each Disney Plus profile in Hulu.
  • Kids profiles with parental controls and restrictions will limit access to mature Hulu content also.
