How to watch Disney Plus offline on your next long flight

Our editorial team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission.

Sign up for the Disney+ bundle here for only $12.99 per month and get exclusive access to 8,000 classic shows and films (including 35 brand new originals!) from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic and more. The bundle also includes access to Hulu and ESPN+, saving you $60 per year.

I don't know about you, but I've fully canceled all of my weekend plans to binge-watch the epic lineup of shows and movies on the newly launched Disney+ from the comfort of my couch.

If you're traveling on an hours-long flight, though, and you still want to binge your favorite Disney classics (but you're worried about Fly-Fi not being strong or fast enough to stream them) you're in luck: Disney+ allows you to download the best titles found on the new streaming subscription service for your offline viewing pleasure.

Disney+ subscribers have access to unlimited downloads of shows and movies (hello, "Lizzie Mcguire" and "Freaky Friday"). All you have to do is download the app and your selected titles while you are still connected to Wi-Fi before boarding your flight. This will work on up to 10 mobile or tablet devices. Once your favorite content has been downloaded, you can watch on-the-go without internet connection. You'll be able to find your downloads by tapping on the downloads icon on the bottom menu of the app, which will store all of your saved movies and shows.

The best part? There's no limit on the number of times a title can be downloaded per year, unlike competing streaming services that have a cap on number of downloads per title. 

Whether you're heading on an airplane for the holidays or need to make your morning commute a little more entertaining, we suggest freeing up some storage and making room for all of your favorite Disney classics.

Not totally ready to commit? Get a free one-week Disney+ trial here and binge watch all of your favorite shows and movies, in addition to exclusive new originals.
