How to Turn Off Autoplay on Disney Plus


The autoplay feature in Disney Plus makes it easy to binge watch content on the popular streaming service. However, if you don’t like how easy autoplay makes it to spend an entire night on the couch without lifting a finger, you can easily turn the feature off. The process for turning off autoplay on Disney Plus is virtually the same across all of the platforms where you can access the streaming service. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.

Steps to Turn Off Autoplay on Disney Plus

  1. Launch Disney Plus on your preferred platform, and then tap or click your profile icon on the home screen. On some platforms, such as Roku, you’ll need to navigate to the far left side of the screen to open a menu where your profile icon is displayed. A menu appears.
  2. Choose “Edit Profiles” in the menu. The Edit Profiles screen appears, displaying a list of the profiles associated with your Disney Plus account.
  3. Select the profile you want to turn off the autoplay feature for. The Edit Profile screen appears for that profile.
  4. Click the toggle to the right of “Autoplay” to turn off autoplay on this Disney Plus profile, and then click “Save.” Now, whenever you finish a show or movie while you’re logged in with that Disney Plus profile, another video won’t start automatically.
