$6.99 a month or $69.99 for the year

I'm hoping there's some discount for shareholders, cast
members, or annual passholders

6.99 is not too bad. It's a dollar cheaper than the DC Universe and will probably have way more content since Disney owns every damn thing now.

Based on the first storyline that they are going to use for the What If? cartoon series I am wondering if these are going to be stories based on the   Marvel Cinematic Universe storylimes rather than the comic book stories themselves.

It`s the price of a couple of comics or pints of beer,
it`s a bargain, as is Netflix, when you consider the
huge content available in both.

We're a Disney family, so this subscription will be a given.

I was hoping to not add another sub but will likely drop HUlu plus for this. I hope it is commercial free like Netflix.

I can't see any way that I will not be subscribing to this when it becomes available.
The Star Wars content that came out this weekend alone would get me subscribing. 
The Marvel content alone that has been previously announced would get me subscribing.

Put both those two together? I am weak and cannot resist.

Upon reflection, Disney is being incredibly smart about their subscription plan.  A couple of weeks ago I was discussing pricing with fellow board member Doug Jones.  He asked how much I thought a sub to Disney+ would be.  I said $10.99.  He laughed and said "higher".  I said "$15.99?"  Again, laughter.  The thought at the time was that it would be offered at a premium straightaway at roughly the same price as a high tier Netflix sub or HBO NOW.  But by offering it at $6.99/month or $69.99 for a full year, they're getting you into their world.  With an aggressive slate of both film and television projects available in just the first year alone plus a ton of previously released content, they hope to have you for the long run.  It's at that point where I suspect they will incrementally raise their sub prices and very few will object.  

Happened with me and Netflix.  Had the streaming option for $9.99 and it's increasing a couple of dollars this year, but I recently got a 4K set and receiver and had to bump it up to their premium to get the 4K content (it's stunning BTW) which is $15.99/month.  Again, totally worth it to me since a single ticket to a new release movie in LA runs between $16-25 depending on the format.  Didn't blink an eye at the monthly cost and I don't think any of us will when Disney eventually raises their prices in the coming years.

It all depends how you justify/quantify it, as i said
earlier, it`s the price of a couple of comics or pints
of beer a month, to me that`s a bargain. Yes, they`re
clever marketing it cheaper than Netflix to start with,
but even if they match Netflix`s pricing, the Marvel,
Star Wars and Disney content. I will definitely be
subscribing.

I figure I've got most of the movies I'm ever going to watch on blu-ray, already, which includes a lot of Disney stuff: their family animated films, the MCU movies, and STAR WARS (just the one).

The new series they've announced haven't really gotten me excited. If that ever changes, I might consider it. 

I've been thinking about dropping Netflix for some time, now, as it's just not watched that often in our household. We have Amazon Prime streaming, but mostly as a side effect.
