Released in late 2019 at first, the Disney+ streaming platform has expanded its catalog in a big way to bring series and movies from such well-known sagas as Star Wars, Marvel, and so on. Since the subscription prices are somewhat high, it is very probable that you are looking for a way to reduce what you spend per month to be a subscriber, and here, we tell you how you can share an account and everything you need to know about it.
How to share your Disney+ account with others
If you are looking to save on your Disney+ subscription and share your account with up to 7 friends, family members, or any other person you know, all you have to do is simply purchase a subscription and share the account passwords with those people with whom you have a prior agreement to split the total subscription fee. It is necessary to consider the limitations of account sharing, detailed in the following sections.
How many simultaneous devices can use Disney+
The total number of registered devices that Disney+ lets you have on the same account is 10, so you can connect your smartphone, TV, tablet, or even console and log in on all of them. In case you reach the limit of ten, you can disconnect your session from the device you use the least to get back within the limit.
As for simultaneous users using the account, the limit set by the company is 4 people at a time. Therefore, it is advisable to limit the number of profiles to four so there are no problems and we do not have to wait for another user to stop using Disney+ before we can log in.
How many profiles can you have in Disney+?
Another detail to take into account is the profiles. We recommend creating one for each person using the account, as you will not have the same preferences as your account partner, and thus, you will not overlap each other in the viewing and monitoring of several series. The limit of profiles is up to 7 in the same account, but due to the fact that it can only be used in four simultaneous accounts, we recommend limiting the creation of profiles to this number.
When creating them, you can choose between normal and child profiles in order to limit the content and have individual parental control for each of the users who have access to the shared account.
Group watch to share Disney+ account
An interesting option that not all users know about is to use Groupwatch to watch movies or series with friends or anyone you know simultaneously and online. To use it, it is necessary that both have a profile in the same account, but in this case, up to 7 people can join the Groupwatch and the limit of profiles is 4 (always adults, children's profiles are not allowed to use Groupwatch).Use the Groupwatch function to watch Disney+ movies and series at the same time
How to create and delete Disney+ sharing profiles
Let us explain how to create profiles to be able to share your account and how you can delete or eliminate them when you no longer need them. Disney+ makes it pretty easy in both cases.

How to find people to share your Disney+ account with
You probably want to share your account with other users to make it cheaper, but you may not have anyone interested in doing so. If that is your case, and you still want to look for someone you do not know and trust to share a Disney+ account with, it is possible to do so thanks to online platforms such as Together Price.Use platforms such as Together Price to search for people to share your Disney+ account with

This will enable up to 3 users to join the account and pay you on a month-to-month or annual basis.

Pricing and subscription plans
- 8,99€ per month
- 89,90€ per year (save 2 months with the annual subscription)
Although at the beginning the price to subscribe was lower, the arrival of the Star catalog and all its contents produced an increase in the rates, and it is worth mentioning that the prices may vary depending on your country, such as $7.99 per month and $79.99 per year in the USA. Even so, it is worth mentioning that both tariffs allow a 7-day free trial period, but only for new accounts, so we cannot chain several free trials forever.
