Disney Plus Not Working on Firestick: How to Fix?

Hey there! Have you ever gotten cozy on the couch ready to stream the latest Star Wars or Marvel movie on Disney Plus, only to find the app just won’t work on your Firestick? So frustrating! But don’t worry, I’ve got some troubleshooting tips to get you streaming again in no time.

Disney Plus Not Working on FireStick – Most Common Reasons


Before we jump into fixes, let’s cover the main reasons Disney Plus could have issues connecting on your Firestick:

  • Slow internet – You’ll need at least 3 Mbps to stream SD and 9 Mbps for HD. Check your speeds to make sure it meets those.
  • Service outage – If it’s just completely down, can’t do much but wait unfortunately!
  • Account problems – Double check your login details if it’s not recognizing your account.
  • Corrupted app cache – This can break things too, but is an easy fix.

These can cause all sorts of problems – crashing, buffering, black screens, etc. But don’t worry, we can tackle them!

How to Fix “Disney Plus App Not Working on Fire TV Stick”

Here are the best troubleshooting steps I’d recommend:

1. Check Your Internet Speed

You’ll want to have at least 50 Mbps speeds for streaming high quality Disney Plus content through a Firestick. Test it out by:

  1. Going to the Settings menu
  2. Selecting “Network”
  3. Clicking “Check Connection”

If your network is too slow, try moving your Firestick closer to the router or upgrading your internet plan.

2. Restart Your Firestick

An easy reboot will clear up a ton of minor glitches! You can restart by:

  • Holding the center and play buttons for 10-15 seconds
  • Or going to Settings > My Fire TV > Restart

Once it powers back up, open Disney Plus again and see if that helped.

3. Clear the App Cache and Data

If it’s still having issues, corrupted app data is likely the culprit. Here’s how to clean that up:

  1. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications
  2. Select the Disney Plus app
  3. Choose “Force Stop”, then Clear Data and Cache
  4. Select Reboot
  5. Relaunch Disney Plus and login again

And that should refresh everything!

4. Double Check Child Settings

If you’re using a kids profile, it’s worth checking what restrictions are enabled under the child settings. Sometimes access gets blocked accidentally!

And that covers all the major fixes – give those a shot and Disney Plus should be up and running smoothly again on your Firestick. Let me know in the comments if any other issues pop up!
