Am I eligible for the free Disney Plus Verizon offer?

If you’re an existing Verizon phone or internet customer, you might already be eligible for the promotion — Unlimited Mobile Wireless and 5G Home Internet plan subscribers can take advantage of the deal. If you have another Verizon plan, it’s easy to switch or upgrade to an option that qualifies for the offer. Contact Verizon directly to make the change.

Already purchased Disney Plus? You can still enjoy the offer. Your Disney+ subscription will be paused as soon as you enroll with Verizon. It’ll resume again after the 12-month promotion period ends. This is true even if you purchased an annual or multi-year plan.
