How to Change the Language on Disney Plus

Get Disney+ in Spanish and many other languages

Disney Plus is an on-demand streaming service from Disney that offers a vast catalog of movies and television series from over the years. Much like other streaming services, you're able to watch much of its content in different languages. Here's how to change the language on Disney Plus from the user interface to the words spoken as you watch.

Disney+ defaults to whatever language the device you're using implements. So, if your Mac is in English and your smartphone is in Spanish, Disney Plus will adapt accordingly. 

How to Change the User Interface Language on Disney Plus

No one wants to navigate the user interface of an app in an unfamiliar language. While the Disney+ website and app switches to the default language of the device you're using, sometimes you might want to change the language manually. Here's how to do it. 

  1. You may need to log into your account.

  2. Hover over your profile image.

How to Change the Audio or Subtitles Language on Disney+

Want to watch Spanish Disney movies? Or at least Disney movies in Spanish? It's a great way to learn a new language or to feel more comfortable watching something in a different language. Here's how to change the audio or subtitles language while you watch a show or movie. 

Disney+ doesn't have an up to date list of its language options on the website. Instead, you need to check individual movies and shows to see what language options are available to you. 

  1. Pick a movie or TV show to watch.

  2. Click Play.
