With the stress of school and life, it’s always great to get that nostalgic feeling where you can reminisce about your childhood, and  Disney Plus definitely gives you that feeling.

My family is like most other cheap families, not willing to spend a penny anywhere that it’s not necessary. When we originally looked into getting Disney Plus, my dad especially was not very keen on spending money on movies and tv shows we have already seen. However, we convinced him to give it a try through persistent begging.

The total came out to $6.99 a month, or we could’ve done an annual subscription of $69.99. 

When we first logged into our account, it was like an actual portal opened to all things Disney. They had, “opened the vault” to movies that traditionally were only played every few years. 

Truly, it was a very magical experience, as most things Disney are. Even my dad who wasn’t very happy to be paying extra every month was just as excited as we clicked through the old classics that even he watched as a child.

Disney Plus has stuff for everyone, including shows, documentaries, movies, etc. that range from, “Boy Meets World,” to the Discovery Channel that other streaming services. 

Not only that, but Disney Plus also offers access to new shows and movies such as, “The Mandalorian,” and “Noelle,” as well as special behind the scene looks on some people’s favorite shows and movies.

For me, I’m most excited to watch the new, “High School Musical,” TV series. It’s the perfect opportunity for my sister and I to hang out and feel like we are really kids again when she comes back from college. 

The revival of all of these movies can bring you to tears with the overwhelming feelings of nostalgia and it most definitely was worth the money, unlike what some people may say.”

The revival of all of these movies can bring you to tears with the overwhelming feelings of nostalgia and it most definitely was worth the money, unlike what some people may say. 

A lot of times life feels like it’s moving too fast, and even my parents find it very comforting to watch the shows. It really takes them back and feel like they’re kids again.

Given that Netflix is removing many of their most viewed shows such as “The Office,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Friends,” which are my favorites, it further proves that Disney Plus is the best streaming service out there. 

At the end of the day, I would prefer to watch endless classics on Disney Plus instead of a streaming service like Netflix that is removing my favorite shows.
