When Is Disney+ Day 2021? Here's What The Streaming Event Is

Disney is planning on celebrating its anniversary in style with a week-long event, culminating in Disney+ Day.

The special event will see the release of new TV and movie content on the streaming platform, as well as discount opportunities for new or returning subscribers.

While new content will become available to watch straight away on Disney+ Day, the service will also share exciting first looks at upcoming movies and series.

Here's everything you need to know about Disney+ Day 2021—including the date and what exactly it means.

When is Disney+ Day 2021?

This year, Disney+ Day is taking place on Friday, November 12, to coincide with the two-year anniversary of the service.

On the same date in 2019, Disney+ launched in the United States, Canada and in the Netherlands, before being rolled out in Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico a week later. It didn't become available in other parts of Europe until March 2020. By November that year, Disney+ finally launched in Latin America.

The streaming service has grown and grown, and now Disney+ has over 116 million subscribers (as of July 3, 2021).

Disney+ Day will see the launch of movies such as Jungle Cruise, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the new Disney+ original movie, Home Sweet Home Alone. A special documentary, Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett, will also air.

Disney+ subscribers who have tickets and reservations to enter will enjoy special benefits on November 12, including entering the parks 30 minutes early, complimentary Disney PhotoPass downloads, and some unexpected surprises will be invited into the parks.

Disney+ subscribers in the U.S. and Europe will receive free shipping from November 12-14 for everything they purchase on ShopDisney.
