When we attempt to login in Disney Plus, we may be unable to get the login page to load. After clicking login button, nothing happens or a black page appears. Or, it keeps asking us to re-login and telling our information is no good. Such kind of login issue could happen on Chrome or other web browsers on laptop or on the Disney+ app on Apple or Android mobile, Apple TV, Smart TV (LG, Samsung, Vizio...), PlayStation, Xbox, etc.

Solutions:

  1. Disable VPN client. Disney Plus always doesn't work with VPN.
  2. Sign in Disney Plus through the sign-up page. To be specific, click the Sign Up Now button and click the sign in or login in button to log into your account.
  3. Open a new incognito or in-private window to visit Disney Plus website and try logging in again. Take Chrome for example. You just need to click the three vertical dots symbol at the upper right hand corner and select New incognito window.
