Want all of your favorite pop culture memories in one convenient streaming service? We're talking Mickey Mouse, The Muppets, The Simpsons and Cinderella. Want even more, you say? How about X-Men, Avatar, most of the Avengers movies, Star Wars, Cinderella, Frozen and so many more fan favorites?

Well, they're all available only on Disney+.

Disney made it really easy to access their vast storehouse of movies and TV shows spanning over 90 plus years — some of which it created and some of which it acquired, like the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — into one amazing well-curated service that guarantees there’s always something fantastic to watch. And it's all yours for just $7 per month.

You may be used to other streaming services by now, but Disney+ is actually a next-level contender. It has a deeply curated archive that includes more quality entertainment than you can imagine.

A lot of Disney's titles are recognizable. Most people know Disney as the movie studio behind animated classics like Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Lilo & Stitch, and Moana, for instance. But did you know that the treasures below also live under the Walt Disney Company umbrella, too — and are all available on Disney+? Take a gander — you might be surprised to see some of your all-time favorites.

All of Disney's classic characters — including the princesses

Disney opened up 'The Vault!' Nearly all of the animation catalog will soon be available on Disney+. Remember the agony of waiting for Disney to release classics like Pinocchio, The Jungle Book and Fantasia on video? Not anymore. As soon as you subscribe, every animated Disney movie from Cinderella to Ralph Breaks the Internet will be yours for the streaming.

In fact, the newest Disney Animation film, Raya and the Last Dragon, is still in movie theaters — but right now you can stream it at home on Disney+ for an additional $30 premium access fee.

Freaky Friday, anyone?

Disney+ also offers every single live-action Disney movie, including favorites like the original Freaky Friday (with Jodie Foster!) and Parent Trap (with Hayley Mills!). Reacquaint yourself with old friends like Herbie the Lovebug, Old Yeller and more. The nostalgia is delicious. And sharing these wonderful films with family and friends is a pleasure.

Disney also has lots of wonderful nature documentaries, such as Penguins, Expedition China, Ghost of the Mountains and more.

Woody, Buzz and Nemo

Disney acquired Pixar in 2006. If anyone in your home finds delight in Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, Inside/Out or anything else in Pixar’s impressive catalog, know that Disney+ has every single Pixar feature film — plus all of the Pixar short films available to subscribers.

Iron Man, aka Robert Downey Jr. (and those other superheroes, too )

Disney+ has every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, short film and animated series. This includes all 23 movies in the 'Infinity Saga' in the future. That means Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and all the rest.

In addition, Disney+ has all the animated X-Men TV series, such as X-Men (1992), Wolverine and the X-Men and X-Men Evolution. It’s expected that all of the X-Men movies will appear on Disney+ too, but later on.

Star Wars

In 2012, Disney acquired all of Lucasfilm, which includes every movie in the Star Wars Saga: It even encompasses all the new movies and spin-offs, such as The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, Rogue One and Solo. If you're a fan of a galaxy far, far away, then Disney+ is a must!

The Simpsons & The Muppets

Disney+ will be the only place you can stream your beloved Simpsons, as well as Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the Muppets gang are here in their classic flicks (The Muppet Movie, and more). The Muppet Show was just added to Disney+ too!

The Disney Channel series your kids loved

Was your family heavily into Disney Channel sitcoms and animated shows in the ’90s and beyond? Disney+ has all the winners. From Lizzie McGuire to Hannah Montana, from Kim Possible to Phineas and Ferb. From That’s So Raven to Wizards of Waverly Place.

Nature shows from National Geographic

Are you wild about wildlife? Disney owns the entirety of National Geographic, so most of Nat Geo’s programing will appear on Disney+. This includes breathtaking TV shows and documentaries like Amazing Planet, Free Solo, Science Fair, Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue, and more.

Brand new original programming

Disney+ will produce plenty of excellent original TV shows and movies, too. For Star Wars fans, there’ll be The Mandalorian, a show that follows a lone gunfighter making his way through the Outer Rim, starring Pedro Pascal (of the Netflix TV show Narcos).

Disney even has a live-action version of Lady and the Tramp with an all-star cast voicing characters (like in The Jungle Book) available to stream. In this new take on the dog-tale, you’ll hear Tessa Thompson, Justin Theroux, Sam Elliott, and Janelle Monáe.

And then there's Soul, the latest and much-buzzed-about Pixar animated film, which stars Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Graham Norton, Rachel House, Alice Braga and more.
