Disney Plus Subscribers Will Get Early Access to Select Merchandise

Being a Disney+ subscriber will also give you early access to select goods and merch.

Comments

In a promotion that started November 1, Disney+ subscribers now have early access to some exclusive Shop Disney merchandise, just in time for the holiday season. U.S. customers can now grab toys, collectibles, apparel, and other products from big brands like Star Wars, Marvel, Disney Studios, and Pixar before they go on sale to the general public.

Subscribers can go to a site made for them to purchase and check out what's available already. In addition, it will include QR for featured products located on the details pages of select movies, series, and shorts as well as on a new Shop tab on Disney+ primary profiles. Just scan the QR codes with your smartphone and it will link directly to product pages on shopDisney. This is only in the testing phase, so the feature is available for a limited time.

"Special access to this curated collection of merchandise for the upcoming holiday season is the latest example of the many ways we experiment with how to improve the user experience on Disney+, which includes enhancing the benefits of being a subscriber," said Alisa Bowen, president of Disney+ (via Variety). "We're excited to collaborate with shopDisney to explore how we can potentially better serve our audiences by expanding the ways they get to interact with the stories and characters they love on Disney+."

Here are some of the high-ticket products available to Disney+ customers exclusively for a limited time:

  • Black Panther Collectible Mask ($150)
  • Ahsoka Tano Special Edition Doll signed by voice actress Ashley Eckstein ($50)
  • Captain Carter Vibranium Shield ($400)
  • The Mandalorian DarkSaber Legacy Set ($250)
  • Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi Battle of the Heroes Legacy Lightsaber Set ($375)
  • Ahsoka Tano Legacy Lightsaber Hilts signed by Eckstein ($400)
  • Doctor Strange Cloak ($100)
  • Scarlet Witch Ear Headband ($30)
  • Black Panther Wakanda Forever Artist Series Jacket ($80)
  • World of Wakanda Artist Series Puzzle ($25)

On top of all that, you will have exclusive access to shopDisney's made-to-order merchandise, like shirts and sweatshirts from Pixar and Disney.

This sort of Disney+ ecommerce trial comes a month before the streaming service introduces a cheaper tier with ads, but will raise the price of the no-ads version. On December 8, the ad-less version of Disney+ will increase from $7.99 to $10.99 per month, while the new Disney+ Basic with ads will be available for $7.99 per month.
