1. Which country has the best Disney+ movies and TV shows?

The Disney+ lineup is similar throughout most regions, but there are some differences to be aware of. Of the currently available regions, it depends on what you’d prefer to watch. For example, Disney Plus in the US lacks Fox’s X-Men movies, while the UK version has the original trilogy, Days of Future Past, and two Wolverine spin-offs in its roster. Disney Plus Star also adds a heap of more adult-themed content. The US tends to get Disney films and specials first, so there’s always a trade-off.

If you use a VPN for streaming, you can bypass all these select restrictions and access libraries no matter where you are.

2. Does Disney+ block VPNs?

Yes. During testing, Disney+ wouldn’t load if the VPN server had been previously blocked or banned. It would either hang during sign-up, or it would revert to my local (UK) version. You may also see the following error message: 

Something went wrong. Please try again. If the problem persists, visit the Disney+ Help Center (Error Code 83).

That’s why we’d advocate for the use of a premium streaming VPN, as free providers tend to lack the resources necessary to unblock Disney+ regularly. 

Yes. You won’t get into any trouble with authorities if you use a VPN for streaming Disney+. (Of course, this is true as long as your country hasn’t banned VPNs, but this won’t affect users in the US.) At worst, they could ban your account, although I’ve never heard of that happening. 

4. How to troubleshoot Disney+ with a VPN?

There are a number of ways to troubleshoot any potential streaming VPN issues. The easiest method is to disconnect from the VPN server, and reconnect to get a new IP address. This should work to resolve most issues. Otherwise, get in contact with the VPN, and see if their reps have a solution. 

5. Which regions have Disney+?

They don’t provide a dedicated list, but Disney+ is available in over 50 countries/regions throughout: 

  • North America
  • Latin America
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Europe

If you’re in a region that doesn’t currently have access to Disney+, their help pages note: “Disney+ plans to launch in all major countries and more will be announced soon.”

Until then, a streaming VPN is the best method to access the Disney+ platform.

6. Can I use a free VPN for Disney+?

The majority of free VPNs will limit their service in some shape or form. If you find a free VPN that is able to access Disney+, they’re likely to cap the amount of bandwidth you can use or your connection speeds. The best VPN for streaming video will have no caps or limits, but it’ll be tough to find a free service that ticks all of the boxes. 

7. Are you allowed to watch Disney+ while abroad?

The Disney+ help page state: “Yes, when you are abroad, you can watch your downloaded series and movies in offline mode. If you are abroad and online where Disney+ is available, you will also be able to stream content that is available in that country.”
