How Canceling Disney+ Impacts Your Billing Cycle

If you’ve just canceled your Disney+ trial, it’s very straightforward.

You’ll receive no charges for Disney+ as long as you cancel the trial before your billing cycle begins. If you want to prevent this from the start, you can preemptively cancel Disney+ at the beginning of your trial. You’ll still get the service for the trial’s full seven days, and you won’t have to worry about any charges.

For anyone already paying for the service, you’re on a monthly cycle. If you decide to cancel Disney+, you can cancel at any time during the billing cycle. You’ll then be able to carry on watching Disney+ until you lose access on the next billing date.

In short, just make sure to cancel Disney+ before the start of the new month to avoid an additional charge.

How to Delete Your Disney Account

One of the overlooked aspects of testing out Disney+ is the need to create a Disney account. During your initial Disney+ registration, you don’t get many options. You’re only able to influence what emails you receive and whether your payment information gets stored.

If you want to remove all of your stored information, you should unsubscribe from Disney’s emails and potentially delete your Disney account altogether.

To take this optional extra step, simply follow these steps:

  1. Head to Disney’s Communication Choices website.
  2. Scroll down to Manage Your Registration Account
  3. Click on the Disney, ESPN, ABC, Marvel, and Star Wars accounts link.
  4. You’ll be prompted to log in. Use the same username and password to log in that you used for Disney+.
  5. Scroll first to the Email Preferences heading and click Manage Your Email Subscriptions. Another browser tab will open.
  6. Select either Unsubscribe from All or individually uncheck Disney+ and/or The Walt Disney Family of Companies. You can now close this tab.
  7. Return to your previous window and look for the Delete Account heading.
  8. Press Delete Account.
  9. If you have an active Disney+ subscription, you’ll see a warning notice stating you have one. If you see this, you won’t be able to delete your account directly.
  10. You can wait out your Disney+ subscription then return to delete your account. Otherwise, follow-up with Disney Guest Services via their contact option for assistance in deleting your account.
  11. If you don’t have an active subscription then just select Yes, delete this account.

If you have any reservations, you can restore your account until 14 days after the deletion request. So if you have any regrets after deleting your Disney account, you have a safety net in place.

What Happens After You Cancel Disney+

Now that you know how to cancel Disney+, you’re equipped with the knowledge you need if and when you decide it’s no longer for you. It’s a quick process, and it’s just as easy to restore your subscription. Perhaps when a new season of The Mandalorian drops.
