It gave me the "Welcome, seems like you're not subscribed screen." So I renewed the subscription thinking it would work but when I logged back in it gave me the same screen. It never has done this before especially when the clone wars and mandalorian season 1 was still releasing episodes.

Disney Plus does have an explaination for "Welcome, looks like you're not subscribed" error message on its Help Centre. It might be an issue of your account. Unfortunately, there are no definite solutions that will help you fix the subscription not working issue on Disney Plus. Still, you can try the tips below to see if it will troubleshoot the Disney+ subscription error.

1. Check If Your Subscription Is in Good Order

The best first step goes to check if your subscription is in good order. You can purchase Disney Plus subscription through Google Play App, iTunes, Canal+ and more.

2. Check Your Login Email Address

If you're using a different email address to purchase a new subscription, Disney Plus will not recognize your subscription. And even you may encounter Disney Plus login issues. To fix it, always make sure you're using the same email address when you subscribe and when you are logging in to Disney Plus.

Besides, there are also cases that you log in and subscribe with the same account but Disney Plus subscription still not working. For example, I noticed that some users subscribes Disney Plus via iTunes but failed, then they contact Disney+ for help. Disney+ says they need complete the subscription. While they cannot help since the account is linked to iTunes and they do not have access to it.

For that, try to go to Disney Plus website and select forgot password with your Apple ID email. This allowed you to set the Disney plus password. Then click the "Restore Purchase" option to get back your subscription.

3. Restart Your Device

Rebooting your device always helps refresh your Internet connection and delete the temporary files on your device. It may troubleshoot the Disney+ not working issue with subscription during the process. Of course, maybe not. But it's always worth a try. Turn off your device and wait for a moment, then turn it on and try to stream Disney Plus contents.

4. Reinstall Your Disney Plus App

If your Disney+ app has some kind of bug or data corruption, it may result in subscription recognition error on Disney Plus. Try to delete your Disney Plus app and then reinstall it on your device to see whether your Disney Plus account get subscribed.
