Kids love Disney movies. They demand to see them not once, but over and over and over and… You get the drift.

Admit it: You love them too. Not just the classics, but the new ones as well. You’re singing the songs in your head right now, aren’t you?

If you’ve been rejoicing over the fact you can watch so many of your favorite Disney movies on Netflix, we suggest you enjoy them while they last. Disney just announced it’s bidding bon voyage to Netflix streaming in the near future.

Our ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’ Will Have to Pay for Disney

Just as the world realized it could watch a ton of Disney films on Netflix, Disney declared that the end is near. On Aug. 8, the mega-corporation announced it’s preparing to launch its own Disney-branded streaming service.

The good news is the new channel will not launch until 2019, which means the current deal with Netflix will continue through the end of 2018.

The bad news is if you are a Disney junkie or have kids, you may want to start saving to pay for yet another service to add to your streaming library.

The new Disney streaming service will feature such titles as “Toy Story 4,” “The Lion King” live-action movie and the sequel to “Frozen,” as well as new shorts and features.

So much for getting by on just the “Bare Necessities.”

Make the Most of it Before You “Let it Go”

You have less than one year and five months to catch all the Disney titles you can on Netflix, so binge, binge, binge!

Currently, you can stream newer titles like “Zootopia,” “Finding Dory,” “Pete’s Dragon,” “Moana” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

What? You didn’t forget that Star Wars is now a part of the Disney universe already, did you?

And don’t forget to reminisce with some of your favorite classics like “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” “Lilo and Stitch,” “The Emperor’s New Groove” and “The Mighty Ducks.”

Will Disney Streaming Be Worth the Money?

We don’t know what the price will be for the new Disney streaming service, but if it’s like most Disney products, it won’t be cheap, but it will probably be high quality.

If you’re a true Disney fanatic, it may well be worth your money. Perhaps you can save money at Disney World on your next vacation to stockpile for the extra expense.

In the meantime, you already have Netflix. Take advantage of the Disney-Netflix partnership while it lasts!
