Needs work, but good
Okay, I get it but why do you have movies made just months ago but u don't have movies made several years ago? It kills me that you have all the Star Wars movies, but you have all the avengers movies EXCEPT for infinity war which was made BEFORE endgame. I know it’s on Netflix, but do you really want your loyal customers using other platforms to watch YOUR movies? Like you have the iron man movies but why the heck do you not have hulk? Or Deadpool? Also, why did you add the second maleficent movie but not the first? I’m not the “OMG I LOVE PRINCESS MOVIES FOLLOW
YOUR DREAMS” type of person but some people are and they haven’t seen that and it makes no sense that you have the second one but not the first I know it’s hard to do all of this because of the quarantine but everyone is home so they’re gonna watch Disney and I also don’t understand why is a movie still in my “continue watching “ section but the movie just has credits left. I know this is getting long so I’m gonna wrap it up why in the movies section for stuff do you have everything out of order? You should do like it like iron man 1 2 3 and then the captain America’s. I’m sorry this is so long but please read this because a lot of people probably can’t tell the difference between Thor ragnorok and Thor the dark world apart so they might watch the third before the second sorry this is so long and I’m gonna wrap this up with a bow thanks for reading it, bye.
Disney Plus The Vault to Everything 4EVER!
I had to write a Magical Disney review I accidentally hit no when prompted on my XBox but I love you guys forever Disney Plus is like opening the vault to a whole new world of wonder from The Classics to Imaginers, Disney History about Walt! To new installments of Lion King and even originals of Family Cooking Competitions! If you love Disney and don’t feel like popping those classic Disney DVDs this adventure is for you! Let’s see I watched everything from the installments of Pirates of the Caribbean, Avatar (looking for #2 Spielberg), FROZEN II, to reliving inspiration and love together winning over adversity Remember The Titian’s, Queen of Katwe, Secretariat, not to mention all of MARVEL the Entire collection and complimentary movies like Captain America, Iron Man (all 1-3 movies I’ll go toe to toe stating Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr is the first Avenger as opposed to Captain America who I love too as “The First Avenger” movie), to Avengers End Game to Star WARS the saga! And the newest installment The Mandalorian. This app makes you want to head back to Walt Disney World and get the full load of the magic, it’s just enough touch of magic for the family during difficult times and create happiness for the family ...I just hope everyone gets back to being health, Love and air hugs to everyone! Hang in there and we hope to see Mickey and Friends real soon....MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU ALL!
All your favorite content in one place!
I love this app! I’m a Disney fan through and through and even have several Disney trivia games. This app is great for me and people like me who appreciate the classic animations, newer live actions, and everything in between. My only recommendation is for some new features that I think would add a lot for the die hard fans of Disney. These two features are a chronological order and a randomized, which I will better describe below. I know there are dates with each movie and online websites, but it would be interesting to see a sort feature designated for when the movies come out. This way this wishing to cross all the Disney movies off their list, may do so. This will be especially handy, since not all the movies or tv shows owned by Disney are not yet on Disney plus, but can evolve with the development and addition of more items. The randomizes, which would be the one I would like to see the most, could be used for just movies, just tv shows, or all items listed. All it would generate after being selected is a random title from the list of all available. This would help those who can’t decide what to watch, but would also like to see something new. It would also help get exposure for some less well known titles on the app. These are both purely recommendations on my end, and other than seeing these, I love the app and where it’s at. Thank you Disney!
Good content but the app is very buggy
By Jordan Boisley
The have a lot of great stuff in the app but the app itself has a lot of bugs. When the screen pops up that says new episode, I try to press it but it does nothing. While playing a video, you have to be careful where you touch or else it will exit out of the video even if you touched nowhere near the back button. The play button buffers. Not the video, but the button itself. There are times when I want to pause the video/movie and I can’t because I have to wait for the play button to buffers. Sometimes the app just crashes for almost no reason. I’ll be watching something like The Simpsons and the app will just crash. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad app, it just needs some major improvements. They do have a lot of stuff on there. I personally have watch led a lot of their classic movies and the Disney+ originals. I recommend The World According to Jeff Goldblum and High School Musical: The Musical - The Series (i am a big High School Musical fan). I think Disney just needs to make some much needed changes to the app and fix all of the current issues. Also, in my opinion, they should add some of the ABC shows like Once Upon a Time or Blackish or Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They should also make certain shows like The Simpsons the original aspect ratio. With certain older shows and movies, you miss some key details showing it in a 16:9 aspect ratio rather a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Overall, I Like -though a few improvements would help
By Rockport, Maine
I waited for a while before subscribing from Disney Plus for a few bugs to get worked out. Overall I am happy but there are a couple improvements I wish they would work on.
First, when trying to rewind a movie with the 10 second rewind button, it usually only works once on my iPad. I have to scroll with my finger to go back, then I also get another push of the 10 second rewind button only to repeat the scrolling... I have not tried the forward button but imagine the same problem. If that is the worse problem I have with bugs then I feel they are headed in the right direction. It is a very minor annoyance for me.
The other thing I wish was that Disney had more of their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s live films available. There are many I want to watch again and are not available yet. Hopefully, Disney will continue to add more movies every so often. Monthly would be perfect. I also wish there were more options for breaking down what movies or shows to choose from by preference. I like live filmed older family movies from 3 generations. Sometimes I would like to know more about the stars of the film and what other Disney films they were in, even if the films are not available yet. But, I imagine in time many changes and improvements will be made.
One major thing missing & Please don’t change movies!
I love how they have ALL the Disney Chanel Originals which was the biggest thing I was wanting. I’ve only been exploring for a little while but it has sooo much.
I am frustrated with not having a “currently watching” list though, that is a pretty necessary thing when I stop watching for a bit I don’t want to have to re-search for my show. That is the only reason it is not 5 stars.
One last thing is I’ve read that some older movies may be censored due to racial or ethnic jokes/slurs or whatever. I really hope they DO NOT do this because that is not only changing beloved movies and shows it is an attempt to alter history. Whether it is approved of or not in today’s society it is a fact that people thought differently in former years and it shows in how they made everything from film to art to books. If there is concern on how it will affect today’s children then it should be seen as a conversation point not something to remove, and if it offends adults then they have the right not to watch it same as we all do for anything. If censoring must be done then make it optional so that those who want to watch the shows in their entirety can freely do so.
Having a commentary or intro series for each explaining the societal and cultural environment of the time would be welcome
Decent app, security not so great
My issues with Disney+ was that my account got hacked, the password was changed and I changed it again after realizing it was hacked. However, THE EMAIL WAS CHANGED TOO! WITHOUT ME EVEN KNOWING! How that was possible, I don't know. After calling customer service and being on the phone the first time, we changed the email and password, only to find out by the first not helpful representative, that they don't give the option to sign everyone out even though you are the administrator of the account, so changing everything was pointless. He basically states that the people who hacked the account will still have access even though I changed all of the login information. I was ready to quit the whole Disney+ until I called customer service again the following day and spoke to Shay, her kindness and helpfulness convinced me to stay with Disney+. She revoked the account immediately and then helped me make a new account. One thing that should be added is better security. For someone to take over my account so easily and change the email and password was a horrible experience. Another thing that should be added is being able to log everyone out as an administrator of the account. The app is decent because of the shows it offers, I do not encounter any buffering and so on; however, the security and privacy isn't that great. .
Absolutely love it!!!
I LOVE this app and have really enjoyed introducing my kiddos to all of the classics! I feel like I am a kid again and am in 7th heaven when I come home and ALL of the Disney movies are just waiting for me! My kids love it and everyone has a new favorite show. All of our other streaming services have officially been forgotten so thank you Disney for saving my hard earned money and for putting all of the most amazing movies in one place!!
Please do not remove older shows due to older views and fear of offending people. I love all Disney movies and appreciate them for what they were and acknowledge that views have drastically changed over the decades. Some items may be offensive, even to me as a African American woman but as so many other have pointed out these are better used as talking points for our children. We cannot alway run from the offensive history that we have, it happened, and it is better to learn from it than pretend like it has always been perfect (which it is far from perfect today).
Also, I really hope we can an area that shows what we are “currently watching” and when I open up the movie it could have the bar that shows how much was completed. I know we have a “watchlist” but it doesn’t help having to search each time.
Addendum: They added a continue watching and a recommended for you. Increased to 4 stars, now just waiting for new content to see how it goes.
I got this app for the bew star wars stuff coming out which is awesome. And it has things from the vault, old cartoons. It has sub sections: star wars/disney/marvel etc. that being said. Theirs things to work on. Theirs no continue watching, you need to either add it to your current watch to the watchlist or search every time. And it wont always remember where you left off especially for shows itll just replay ep 1 however i havent had this issue with movies, it remembers my place most times. It freezes often requiring you to close and reopen the app(ps4) havent had freeze issues on tablet. Itll also freeze and then go back a minute replaying things as it tries to correct itself. The current library is very limited to older disney movies. As i believe other streaming oroviders have current contracts for certain movies they prolly wont be able to add them to disney+ till other hulu/netflix movies are done with their contracts example is a limited marvel movie selection. They have plans to add more shows/movies so i think itll be like netflix where they add and remove shows and movies. When its less buggy I’ll prolly give it 4-5 stars at that time.
Nice content but needed update...
this review is more geared towards the developers...I love and appreciate all of the disney content on this app but the app seems to only push specific series and not any that are tailored for my experience. It would be much better to see suggested series or movies instead of the same few disney originals that Disney wants to push so often. It makes it kind of hard to see or consider watching all of the content that is on this app unless I specifically search for a title to watch on my own. Along with this, I have had the same problem with this app since the day that I’ve downloaded it and i’m hoping this bug gets fixed soon...Every time I press the reverse/forwards 10 second button the movie will reverse/forwards to where it needs to be, but the loading animation would stay on the screen. The problem with this is that it prevents me from pausing or reversing/forwarding any other time after this one time because the loading animation would still be on the screen if I attempt to do so. The buttons do not reappear. It doesn’t obstruct the view of the streaming media and it’s only there when I tap to attempt to pause but it prevents me from taking any other action after i’ve done it once before. I hope mentioning these things has been helpful and I look forward to this bug being fixed soon.
