Disney Plus is the streaming service that's pretty much mandatory if you have kids. Or if you love Marvel movies. Or Star Wars . Or Baby Yoda. Basically, it's just mandatory. (Mandalory? Sorry.) And priced at $7.99 per month, it's not crazy expensive, though combined with Netflix, Hulu , Amazon , HBO and all the rest, the costs start to add up. 

When it first launched, you could only buy Disney Plus for yourself. But recently, Disney rolled out a one-year gift subscription to Disney Plus for $79.99, making it a great option for the holidays.

There's a little fine print, of course. It's for new subscribers in the US only, so you can't give this to someone to add on to a subscription they already have in progress. But giving the gift of Disney is easy; you specify a day, and the House of Mouse will send an email to your recipient with instructions on how they can sign up and start watching. And over the course of a year, it's $13.89 cheaper than paying month-to-month, so that's good for everyone.
