It’s a union made in heaven: The visual effects-driven spectacle of Disney Plus blockbusters (Avengers: Endgame), Star Wars: The Force awakens, Frozen) – with a picture that packs four times as many pixels onto your screen than HDTV. You can’t go wrong with Disney Plus 4K.

Disney Plus offers more than 100 titles in 4K. These include classics like The Lion King and X-Men, as well as modern favorites and Original series. We’ll see 4K content on smart TVs and other media streaming devices grow as 4K becomes an integral part of smart TVs.

We’ll show you how to get the best Disney Plus viewing experience, what devices can stream Disney Plus 4K and what kind of content to expect.

What is Disney Plus in 4K

Yes! Yes! There are approximately 900 films and 300 TV shows available to stream. Although most of these titles are available only in HD, 100 titles are available to stream in stunning 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition) format.

This is a tenth the Disney Plus catalog. It’s a small amount. It does include the most important content for enhanced picture quality. The 4K resolution (3840×2160) brings four times as many pixels to the screen as a HD (1920×1080) TV.

All things Pixar are ready for 4K, including Toy Story and the award-winning soul. There’s also the Marvel Cinematic Universe intergalactic chaos, plus all Disney Original series such as The Mandalorian, and the entire Star Wars saga. 4K brings a faraway galaxy to life with razor-sharp detail.

You can search for Ultra HD and HDR content in Movies. You’ll also find many other titles in 4K, such as Disney’s The Jungle Book, the teen rom-com Ten Things I Hate About You, and The Muppet Christmas Carol.

You will need to subscribe in order to stream in 4K. We explain more below.

How can I activate 4K on Disney Plus

You don’t have to. If your hardware can play 4K Ultra HD, and if the TV series or film is available in 4K, Disney Plus will automatically stream the movie in the highest resolution. This is the magic of Disney!

If your Disney Plus settings don’t update correctly or you want to avoid accidentally consuming large amounts of data, then you can manually adjust your video playback settings as follows:

  • The Disney Plus app is now open (opens in a new tab).
  • Select your Profile
  • Select App Settings
  • Under Video Playback, select ‘Mobile Data Usage’
  • You have two options: Automatic (best available video) or Save Data, which streams at a lower quality and uses less data.

You can also toggle the Stream over Wi-Fi Only’ option right so that data is not automatically used if you lose a Wi Fi connection.

You can change the video quality of downloaded TV episodes and films by going to Downloads’. This allows you to set the speed limit for downloading them from ‘High’ (lowest option that takes up most space on your device) to ‘Medium or ‘Standard (fastest option that requires less storage).

There are more than 100 Disney Plus 4K titles, but there is no definitive list. Click on the title to see the details tab. If it is, it should say “4K Ultra HD” along with other compatible audio and viewing options like HDR (High Dynamic range) and Dolby Atmos.

You will need a TV, 4K Ultra HD, or HDR display as well as a high-speed internet connection at least 25Mb. This is because you will be downloading large files and won’t want to experience frequent buffering.

Disney Plus recommends that HDMI cables support high bandwidth digital content and external displays support HDCP2.2 (High Definition Digital Content Protection).
