Good but..

It is good, but settings are limited after creation and parent profiles have no security so you cannot do autoplay and kids can go on parent profiles and watch not age appropriate content. Also a simple UI makes it easier for kids to navigate.

Check out Miles from Tomorrowland

Pretty good app. The content is great. It's been a little buggy but seems to get better sometimes. Really reliably good kids' content. When it's good it's better than Netflix, but there isn't as much on there. Our kids love Miles from Tomorrowland, wish there were more of it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (32 ):

There's an impressive selection of easily accessible titles here that will appeal to a wide range of viewers. Most of the titles in Disney+ are strictly for entertainment, but there are a handful of National Geographic documentaries that are part of the Kids profile setting. Additional titles from National Geographic that older kids could enjoy are excluded from the default Kids setting but do make it past some of older age ratings filters. The GroupWatch feature can be a fun way to have a movie night with a faraway loved one, though everyone in the group needs to have a Disney+ subscription. It's really easy to create multiple profiles to suit kids of different ages. PIN-protected profiles, and password-protected changes to profiles, help give parents control over setting up and moving between profiles.

It's unclear what the difference is between the default Kids setting and the option to set a filter for including content only for a certain age and below. There's also no information about what the age ratings are based on. Some parents may find that content they don't feel is right for their kids gets through the filters they set. Being able to include or exclude titles would be great. That said, if you love Disney (or Marvel or Star Wars or Pixar or ... ), you have hundreds of viewing options here -- and ways to keep viewing kid-friendly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
