Republic of Ireland Guests:
Some DisneyLife features and content are not available on all devices, please visit Ways to Watch to check what limitations may apply and to see the full list of supported devices, please note that this information may be updated from time to time. To enjoy the full DisneyLife experience you should download the latest version of the app on a supported device.
1. Membership. To set up a DisneyLife Account and sign up for a subscription you must be aged 18 years or older and resident in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. Minors may only use DisneyLife with the permission and under the supervision of the Account Owner or other responsible adult member of the household. The Account Owner is solely responsible for providing (and keeping updated) true and accurate information during sign up and through the subscription period. When you sign up for DisneyLife you are responsible for all access to and use of DisneyLife by your household. Your Disney Account password controls your DisneyLife Account and must not be shared with anyone else. We recommend that you do not reveal your payment details or any password or PIN to prevent any other person from making changes to your account details or controls.
2. Free Trial. Your subscription may start with a free trial. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. Free trials are for new customers only. We take a payment method from you when signing up to the free trial, however, nothing will be charged at that time. We will only bill you at the end of the free trial period, unless you cancel before. You can access details of your subscription, including the monthly fee and end date of your free trial period and how to cancel in your account settings. You will not be notified that your free trial period is about to end or has ended and that your paid subscription has started.
a. Your chosen payment method will be automatically charged each month on or around the day your first subscription payment was taken (typically the day after your free trial ended, where a trial is offered). You will then be automatically charged the current monthly rate on or within 24 hours of that day every month, in order to continue access to DisneyLife for that billing period (each month is a billing period).
b. You can cancel anytime but your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel with us (or, where you are paying a third party platform, auto-renew is turned off) at least 24-hours before the end of the current billing period. Go to your account settings on your device to make this change.
c. Payments are nonrefundable and no refunds or credits are given for any unused period which has already been charged. When you confirm your subscription purchase this means that you consent to the immediate start of your subscription and access to DisneyLife and you acknowledge that you lose your legal right to cancel the contract with Disney (but this does not affect your ability to cancel your subscription).
d. If you are eligible for a promotional offer or discount we will reduce your bill for the promotion period.
e. We reserve the right to change the date we charge you if your payment method has not been successfully authorised or if that renewal date does not occur in a given month. To view your next renewal date go to your account settings.
4. Price Changes. We may change the price for DisneyLife from time to time. Any price changes will apply to you no earlier than 30 days following notice to you.
5. Payment details. You are responsible for keeping your payment details up-to-date by changing the details in your account settings. Where your details change or are due to expire we may obtain or receive from your payment provider updated details including your card number, expiry date and CVV (or equivalent). This enables us to continue to provide you access. If a payment is not successfully authorised due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, we may suspend or terminate your subscription.
6. Refunds & Credits. Payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our subscribers. If we do this for any reason this does not mean we are obligated to do so again, even for the same circumstance.
7. Third party platforms. If you signed up through in-app purchase with a third party then you will be paying that third party and not Disney directly. In-app purchases are subject to these DisneyLife Terms and the third party’s current app store terms and conditions of sale (including any applicable usage rules). Important information on the applicable terms of sale, payments, taxes, payment methods, your right to cancel a transaction and when you can exercise such right (where applicable), and the technical steps to conclude a transaction, will be detailed in the third party’s terms and conditions. If you wish to change your payment method, you will need to do so through that third party. Any price changes will be handled in accordance with the third party’s terms and conditions and may not take effect as quickly as if you were paying us directly.
8. Data Charges. Please remember, when accessing DisneyLife over your mobile network, you may use and/or exceed your data allowance. Please make sure you are aware of your data allowance or use Wi-Fi where available. Disney is not responsible for any internet access, data or other charges you may incur when using DisneyLife.
a. You may cancel your subscription at any time which will take effect at the end of your current billing period (or free trial period, as applicable) and you will continue to have access until the end of your current billing period (or free trial period, as applicable). We do not provide refunds or credits for partially used billing periods or for unused content. If you validly cancel during a free trial period, then you will not be charged and your access will end when your free trial expires.
b. If you signed up with Disney to cancel go to the payments section in account settings and follow the instructions or call Guest Services. You will continue to have access until the day before your next payment was due.
c. In some cases, European law provides an additional legal right to cancel, however when you signed up to DisneyLife you consented to the immediate start of your subscription and by doing so acknowledged that this additional legal right to cancel no longer applies.
d. If you are paying your subscription fee to a third party you will need to cancel through that third party. Steps to cancel may include, visiting your account with that third party and turning off auto-renew or unsubscribing from DisneyLife. Billing information is managed by that third party. We are not able to cancel your subscription where you have signed up through a third party and we are not responsible for any charges you incur where you have not cancelled with them correctly.
10. Gift Terms
b. Gift cards and codes do not have a redeem-by date. Gift cards are not valid for use until purchased and may require activation at the till. Please keep your proof of purchase.
c. Gift cards purchased in store or online at Disney Store are refundable subject to the retailer’s refund policy provided that the code/scratch-off panel has not been tampered with (if the card is in a gift box then the box must not have been opened and the seals must remain intact).
d. Gift codes purchased online are refundable provided the code has not been redeemed and a refund request from the purchaser is received by Guest Services within 30 days from date of purchase.
e. Once any gift code is redeemed this means the user has consented to the immediate start of the DisneyLife subscription and loses their right of cancellation and refund. Guest Services will handle refund requests or, if you prefer, you can complete the cancellation and refund form (you can download a copy here and send it to Disney by post as detailed on the form). Please note that to process your refund, you will need to provide the order number from your confirmation email so we can check the code has not been redeemed. We will refund the price paid to the original payment method within 14 days of confirming the request is valid. Codes remain active until we confirm the refund will be processed. No refund or credit note can be given to the gift recipient directly. The gift recipient may cancel their gift subscription at any time after redemption, however they will still receive access for the full gift period.
f. If you successfully redeem your gift, your gift subscription will start immediately. When your gift period is coming to an end, we will contact you to notify you and give you the opportunity to pay to continue to subscribe to ensure there is no break in your enjoyment of DisneyLife. You are not obligated to continue your subscription and you will not be charged without your consent.
