Give your kids the gift of Disney+ this Valentine’s Day

For children, holidays are more than a celebration — they’re magical. Even Valentine’s Day can be filled with endless smiles and laugher with its joyful, brightly colored festivities, but the magic doesn’t have to end there! Valentine’s Day gifts for kids can be tricky to pinpoint, but thanks to Disney+’s diverse entertainment plans, happily ever after is just the beginning. Kids will love having the entire Disney universe at their fingertips, and you’ll love knowing they’re getting only the best in TV and movie choices. Disney gifts keep on giving!

Perks of Disney+

If you thought Disney+ was all princesses and animation, think again! This impressive lineup has more than 7,500 TV shows and 500 movies, including those of Disney affiliates. In addition to the classics you know and love, you’ll find titles from Marvel, National Geographic, Pixar, and Star Wars (via Disney+). There really is something for children of every age — and even children at heart.

Starting at just $6.99 per month, this Valentine’s Day gift won’t break the bank. You can change your plan at any time if you need to, and you can watch from nearly anywhere. Disney+ is available on 18 different streaming-compatible devices, including tablets, phones, gaming consoles, and smart TV models. Now your kids can keep up with their favorite movies and shows wherever you go! You can even download your go-to titles to your phone or tablet for viewing in places without WiFi. Say goodbye to boring car rides!

The Disney Bundle — for the whole family

Choosing the Disney+ Bundle plan will reward you and your family with endless entertainment options. As if having the entire Disney collection on your device isn’t magical enough, The Disney Bundle allows you to add even more to your plan. At $12.99 per month, you can add ESPN+ and Hulu to your Disney+ plan, which saves you money versus subscribing to all three separately. With access to all platforms, everyone in the family can find something they love.

Budding athletes will go crazy for the live sports and archived specials on ESPN+, which you won’t find on other mainstream streaming platforms. This app covers MLB, international soccer, and even collegiate athletics. To discover what else ESPN+ has to offer sports fanatics, check out its video page for full listings, including live-event coverage.

Hulu, on the other hand, has a little bit of everything. From kids shows to R-rated movies, this streaming service has got it all. No one is in the mood for the same shows 24/7, right?

Spending time together as parent and child is an awesome way to show your love and appreciation for one another any day of the year, especially if you can find something to do (or watch!) that you both enjoy. Whether your idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day includes a romantic movie — Disney can help keep your kiddos occupied — or some family time watching your favorite animated classic, the diverse options from Disney+ lets you decide what’s best for you. Whichever plan you choose, you have hours of magical memories with your family ahead of you, which in itself is a Valentine’s Day gift unlike no other.

What to watch with your teens on Valentine’s Day
Staying in with your kids on Valentine's Day? Check out these Valentine's Day movies for teens
Parents watching TV with their teen daughter

There's nothing we love more than grabbing our favorite drink and all the snacks and watching a mushy rom-com on Valentine's Day. But what if your teens want to hang out with you to watch a movie? Instead of an "adulty" rom-com with scenes you don't want your kids to see, these Valentine's Day movies for teens won't gross them out or create any awkward moments (we hope).

Oldies but goodies
The Princess Bride
This isn't just one of those kissing movies. There are sword fights, adventures, and hilarious scenes, and it's one of the most quotable movies that will have your teens saying "as you wish" when you ask them to do something. The Princess Bride also makes a great family Halloween costume if you need an idea.
Little Women
The 1994 version of Little Women is what we're talking about here. With an absolutely amazing cast in every role, the story of love between sisters and between a mother and her children is beautifully told. Your teens will also get a kick out of seeing some of the "old actors" in their younger days.
Family love
Vivo isn't only an animated movie with great songs that your teens will sing all the time, but it's an emotional story about the love within a family. And any movie that has an animal as a main character never lets you down.
The Proposal
Yes, the movie is mostly about how amazing Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are. But The Proposal goes deeper into the father-son dynamic, a mother's unconditional love, and how much grandmothers are the best person in everyone's family.
Movies about friendship love
Luca is one of the best movies about unconditional friendship and family that definitely flew under the radar when it came out. Not only visually breathtaking, but the relationship between the main characters Luca and Alberta is a friendship we all wish we had.
Another animated movie that didn't get as much credit as we think it deserved, UglyDolls explores loving yourself the way you are and finding your tribe, no matter what that looks like.
OK, a few rom-coms for the older teens
10 Things I Hate About You
If your older teens are totally into the rom-com genre, we have to bring up 10 Things I Hate About You. It has all the teen romance stuff, but the relationship between the father and his daughters, and between those daughters Kat and Bianca, are touching in their own ways.
Always Be My Maybe
If you want a funny, adorable, but at times sad, and overall good rom-com that parents and teens will both enjoy, then press play on Always Be My Maybe. The Keanu Reeves scene alone is worth watching it on repeat.
