Note: Disney Plus subscription does not come with a VPN. This means without a Disney+ subscription, using a VPN service is of no use as it won’t allow you to access the service since it’s not free. 


How does a VPN Allow You to Access Disney+ on Your Firestick Device From Anywhere?

The internet you are using has your location’s local IP address. And to follow the rules and regulations of content distributions, streaming services like Disney+ use an IP tracker to block all the users who try to access their content from an unsupported country.

So when you try to access Disney+ on your Firestick device in a country where Disney Plus is not available, it triggers the IP trackers that immediately block you from accessing the content.

This is where a VPN service comes to the rescue. With the use of a VPN, you can hide your local IP with the one where Disney+ is available such as the USA. So when you connect to the US server and try to access Disney+, it tricks the IP tracker into that you are somewhere in the USA and thus allows you to access the content.


How Much Does Disney Plus Cost on a Firestick?

The cost of Disney Plus on Firestick is as follows:

  • The monthly subscription costs $$11.99.
  • A monthly Disney+ bundle subscription with Hulu and ESPN+ costs $13.99.
