Disney Movies Anywhere review

Download.com staff

Disney Movies Anywhere lets you watch all of your favorite Disney movies on your mobile device, no matter where you are. You can either choose to stream movies directly, or you can download them to watch when you're not online.

Pros

iTunes integration: When you purchase a Disney movie on Blu-ray, you'll also receive a code to redeem a digital copy, which you can enter into this app to access that particular movie. But even if you don't have a physical copy of the movie or don't want to buy one, you can purchase Disney movies straight through the app via a link to iTunes. And any movies you had purchased through iTunes previously will be available through the app once your accounts are linked.

Viewing options: If you're connected to a Wi-Fi network and don't feel like waiting for a movie to download before you watch it, you can just stream it directly through the app. But if you'd like to be able to watch your movie at another time when you may not have access to Wi-Fi, you can download it to your device. Both viewing options worked well during testing, making it quite convenient to watch, no matter where you are.

Cons

Code issues: Codes for digital copies of movies entered into this app didn't always cause the movie to show up right away in the My Collection section of the app. And since you can't enter the code again or play the movie without it, this delay can be quite frustrating.

Bottom Line

Disney Movies Anywhere makes it easy to watch your favorite Disney movies on your mobile device wherever you are. It offers a nice set of features and ways to watch. While we did encounter some bugs involving codes from physical disk packages, these will hopefully be resolved in time.
