Featuring Star Wars titles, Marvel movies and shows, plus much much more, Disney+ is the newest streaming service on the block. However, big fans of the House of Mouse will note that Disney already have a streaming service: DisneyLife.
So, what exactly is the difference between the two services? Here’s all you need to know.
Is Disney Plus the same as DisneyLife?
No, the two are different services. UK experimental service DisneyLife, which launched in 2015, offers subscribers a large range of Disney films and shows (minus Star Wars, Marvel and Fox titles).
Disney+ launched on 24th March, bringing all new content and old favourites including Star Wars, Marvel and Fox TV shows and Disney films. Disney+ has replaced Disney Life.
DisneyLife is becoming Disney+ and will be rebranded in March 2020. We will communicate more information about how to transition your subscription to Disney+ soon.
We have a few different price plans for Disney+ and we’ll be announcing details soon.

While DisneyLife only produced one original series (Legend of the Three Caballeros), Disney+ promises a string of new titles, including Star Wars’ The Mandalorian and a selection of Marvel TV titles.
Disney told RadioTimes.com ahead of the launch that DisneyLife subscribers would be sent more information about switching to a Disney+ account. The service also did a Q&A on its UK Twitter account.
Hello! It’s lovely to meet you all. It’s a good thing we’re good at queuing patiently in the UK! It’s now only a few weeks until #DisneyPlus launches *cue the confetti, tears of joy and fireworks* Follow @DisneyPlusUK for the latest #DisneyPlus updates. pic.twitter.com/B4Ni3sw85H
