Disney Plus UK February: Six shows it’s worth getting the streaming platform for

Some shows justify the subscription fee all on their own

Potential UK Disney Plus customers this February will be blown away when they see the range of content on the streaming platform.

There’s so much on there that, as with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, it’s easy to become mired in the process of simply looking for something to put on.

Others might see the Disney brand and think it only has kids’ shows or it’s not for them. However, there’s pretty much something for everybody!

What’s more, some shows on there are so good that, taken on their own, they make the subscription worth getting. Here are six of the best programmes you can watch on Disney+ right now.

The Imagineering Story

This documentary series offers an in-depth look at the history behind the Disney theme parks and the brand’s attractions around the world.

Disney+’s description reads: “Given unprecedented access, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks leads the viewer on a journey behind the curtains of Walt Disney Imagineering, the little-known design and development centre of The Walt Disney Company.”
