I’ve had Disney+ for the past few weeks now. I hate to say it, but even as someone who doesn’t like Marvel, Star Wars, or Pixar, it’s my favorite streaming service right now.
There’s not a lot of particularly interesting new content — the latest animated Disney and Pixar movies are nice — but the rich archives of Disney content for children, from Disney Channel Original Movies to old Disney cartoons is a gold mine of comfortable content.
I prefer it strongly over Netflix, but of course, I feel too deeply embedded into Netflix to give that up. Netflix is too much the default.
I now have 4 streaming services. I’m definitely overwhelmed, but luckily I’m sharing them all with people so I don’t feel too bad.
Nothing beats Disney+ for a quick movie or TV show during the pandemic, though. I’m tired of sad, scary stuff. Let’s just watch TaleSpin.
