Recent figures reveal that worldwide subscribers have now surpassed the 50 million mark, showing just how many of us are turning to the service for family films and series to keep us entertained while we're at home.

Students yet to subscribe may be wondering if there is a discount available, and if not, how much a subscription costs.

Is there a Disney Plus account for students?

There is currently no student discount for Disney Plus subscriptions in the UK and neither is there one in the US.

For UK users however, Disney Plus costs £5.99 a month or £59.99 a year.

While Disney Plus shows can be viewed on a wide range of devices, such as many smart TVs, it's worth checking to see if your particular device is one of them before subscribing.
