The streaming platform DisneyPlus has taken the world by storm after its release in 2019. It can now be found in lots of countries around the world, but there are still many countries in which the services cannot be reached or used. Maybe you have an active DisneyPlus subscription but you cannot use it, because DisneyPlus is unavailable at your current location? Maybe you don’t have a subscription, but you would like to get a subscription to the service and to watch the fantastic content on the platform? In this article, I will help you no matter what your problem might be.
You can find a lot of fantastic content on DisneyPlus. The most famous production is The Mandalorian, a fantastic Star Wars series, but there are lots of other TV series worth streaming as well, including Loki, and there are lots of original movies available for those with a subscription to the streaming service. Are you ready to try it yourself?
I already have a DisneyPlus subscription, but I cannot use it, because DisneyPlus is unavailable at my current location!
Let us say that you are an American currently on a trip to Budapest in Hungary. You sit down with your laptop in your hotel room and visit www.disneyplus.com. To your great surprise, you do not see the normal screen. Instead, you will see an error message telling you that the service isn’t available at your current location. Isn’t that a mess?
It doesn’t matter that you already have a Disney+ subscription. You cannot use it right now, because DisneyPlus is unavailable at your current location. What can be done?
1. First of all, you will need to have a VPN subscription running with ExpressVPN.
ExpressVPN has a 30-day full refund policy, so there is no risk in trying this. You can use one subscription on five devices simultaneously, and ExpressVPN works perfectly on all operating systems (including Android and iOS devices).
When you have bought your ExpressVPN subscription you are ready to use your DisneyPlus subscription, no matter where you are in the world.
2. Connect to a server in the United States
Now you can connect to an ExpressVPN server in the United States. This will give you an American IP address and it will give you access to the DisneyPlus website. You can once again log in to the platform and stream all the content that you are interested in. It doesn’t matter if your DisneyPlus subscription is registered in a different country (like the Netherlands, France, Canada, Australia, or somewhere else). The easiest solution is still to connect to a server in the USA.
Here you can see that I am connecting to an ExpressVPN server in the United States. This will give me an American IP address, and it will help me access the DisneyPlus website, even though the service is unavailable at my current location in the world.
3. Watch DisneyPlus
Now you can visit the DisneyPlus website or open the DisneyPlus application on your device. You will be able to visit the website, log in with your user credentials, and to stream all the content that you might be interested in.
Here I have managed to visit the DisneyPlus website and I can stream all the content available at the platform. It wasn’t very hard, was it?
I need a brand new DisneyPlus subscription, and I need to pay for my subscription!
If you don’t have a DisneyPlus subscription yet, things will be a bit more complicated, but it doesn’t have to be very complicated. Here I will show you how you can get a DisneyPlus subscription easily and also how you can pay for it. Maybe you don’t expect it to be complicated to pay for the service, but you will quickly notice that it is harder than most people imagine. Do you know why? You need to have a payment card issued in the actual country of your subscription to pay for the service. In other words, if you want to create a DisneyPlus account in the USA, you need to have a PayPal account or a payment card issued in the United States. That isn’t very easy, normally! But, I have a quick fix to the problem, so just keep on reading!
1. The first step is to buy a VPN subscription
Once again, the first and most important step is to purchase a VPN subscription to ExpressVPN. This is needed to fake your actual location and to make the DisneyPlus website believe that you are located at a different location. Click the button below to visit the ExpressVPN website.
If you click the button above and purchase a 12-months subscription, you will receive 3 additional months for free as a bonus!
This is an example of what the ExpressVPN website may look like. They often change the design according to the season of the year, so don’t be surprised if it looks different as you visit the website.
ExpressVPN has applications for Windows, iOS, Android, Macintosh, FireTV, and more platforms, and you can use the same subscription on five devices at the same time.
2. Run the VPN application and connect to a server in the USA
Now it is time to install the ExpressVPN application on your computer, telephone, tablet, or TV. Start the program and connect to a server in the United States. Maybe you are tempted to use a different VPN instead? You can try, but DisneyPlus is blocking most of the VPN providers out there, so I cannot guarantee you that it will work. But, I have personally used ExpressVPN several times and it is probably the best VPN for unblocking TV networks and streaming services, so I can warmly recommend this service.
When you have connected to a server in the USA you will have an American IP address and you are ready to visit the DisneyPlus website.
Here I am connected to an ExpressVPN server in the USA and I am ready to sign up for DisneyPlus.
3. Try to purchase a DisneyPlus subscription
Now you can try to purchase a DisneyPlus subscription. You can decide whether you want the bundle including Hulu, ESPN+, and Disney+, or if you want to subscription to Disney+ only. You can try to pay with your current payment card or with your PayPal account, and should it work, rejoice and be happy. But, if it doesn’t work, this is what you should do.
Pay for DisneyPlus if your current payment cards don’t get the job done?
If you are unable to pay for DisneyPlus with your current payment card, the easiest solution is to register to get a USUnlocked payment card. It is really easy and it will give you a real American payment card that can be used to pay for DisneyPlus, Amazon Instant Videos, and other American services requiring you to have a payment card issued in the United States.
There are different solutions if you want to add funds to your USUnlocked payment card. When you have added funds to the card, you will immediately see your payment details, and you will be able to pay for DisneyPlus immediately.
Have you received the information about your USUnlocked card? You are now ready to take the next step and to get your Disney+ subscription in order!
4. Visit DisneyPlus once again and purchase a subscription
Now that you have a USUnlocked card you are ready to finally get your DisneyPlus account. Whenever your subscription has been made, go ahead and stream all the content you have been waiting to stream at the DisneyPlus website.

Would you like to stream DisneyPlus on your Android or iOS device? You need to follow the steps above in order to get a subscription to DisneyPlus. But, to actually find the DisneyPlus application in the Apple Store or in the Google Play Store, some extra work is needed.

- Use ExpressVPN and keep it connect to a server in the USA or to some other country in which DisneyPlus is available.

You should now be ready to watch DisneyPlus on all your devices! I have tried to make these instructions really detailed and easy to understand. If you still need help or have questions, please use the comment field below and I will do my best to answer and to help!
Will there be different content in different nations on Disney+?
This is a very good question and one I cannot give an answer to yet. With Netflix, there are lots of differences when it comes to content between the different nations, and thus users use a VPN to access content available only in certain countries and regions. Will, there be a need for such solutions on Disney Plus as well, or will the content be identical in every single nation?
The answer is that there are some differences, but they are really minor, so you don’t really need to take them into consideration. As a result, you will most likely find almost identical content, no matter where in the world you are when you try to watch DisneyPlus online.
Enjoy streaming DisneyPlus online! I hope you have enjoyed this article. Feel free to share it with friends and family members, give it a like, and share it on social media if you feel like it is worth reading!
