Do you wish to change the language on your Disney Plus? Or does the content on Disney Plus show in a different language and you don’t know how to fix it? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Fortunately, the streaming platform has many language choices available to you on much of its content. You can watch content in four languages — English, Spanish, French, and Dutch, including more language options for Disney Plus originals.

And if you want to watch shows with subtitles, there are up to 16 languages you can choose from, including German, Italian, Japanese, European Spanish, Latin American Spanish, and Cantonese Chinese. However, not every language is available for each title.

Apart from changing the language of movies and TV shows, you can change the app language for a specific profile in the profile settings. Changing the language will only apply to that profile, and your friends and family who are sharing Disney Plus with you can use it in their preferred language.

Also, the good news is that you don’t need to change the language on every platform you use it on. When you change the language on one platform, it automatically changes on all others.

Below, we’ll show you how to change the content or the interface on Disney Plus via web browser and app.
