Want to watch Disney Plus on Chromecast? Congratulations! You found a step by step guide for doing just that!
Casting your favorite shows from Display Plus app on Android or iPhone to a Chromecast is just one tap away. You need to tap on the ‘Cast’ icon located at the upper right corner of the screen and select your Chromecast from the list of devices. The process is only slightly different if you are accessing Disney Plus contents via Google Chrome.
Steps for Watching Disney Plus on Chromecast
Step 1: You probably already have the Disney Plus app on your phone. Make sure that you don’t have any dues on your account. If you have run out of subscription, the app will work but you won’t be able to access the contents.
Step 2: Video feed is sent to Chromecast (the receiver) only when the source (your phone) is connected to the same network as the receiver. If you are on PC and are connected to a router through LAN cable, you need to connect your Chromecast to the Wi-Fi network of the same router (if you happen to have more than one ‘Local Area Network’ (or router) at your home).
Step 3: Launch the Disney Plus app on your phone and find the movie you want to watch on your TV.
If this is the first time you are using the app on your phone, you will need to provide your login information.
Step 4: Once you select a movie, it will start playing on your phone but that’s something you don’t want at the moment. You will see the ‘Cast’ icon at the upper right corner of the screen. You know what to do!
Step 5: The app will scan for DLNA enabled devices in the network and present you with a list of device/s to which you can send the video feed from your phone. Choose your Chromecast in the list.
Step 6: “Hey! It’s working!” your friend will probably shout from the living room.
Chromecast Not Listed?
Should you not find your Chromecast in the above-mentioned list, you might want to double check if your phone and Chromecast are connected to the same network. Vizio TV owners have registered complaints of getting a device unavailability error. Just make sure you are running the latest version of Disney Plus on your phone. Outdated app is more likely to encounter errors.

Watch Disney Plus on Chromecast by Streaming From Google Chrome
If you are accessing the web version of Disney Plus on Google Chrome, the procedure is slightly different for casting your movie. Head to the Disney Plus website and login to your account. Find a movie and click on the poster to open its info screen. Unlike Android, Google Chrome won’t have the ‘Cast’ icon. You will need to click on the ‘three dotted drop-down menu’ icon on the upper right corner of the screen and select the ‘Cast’ option. You will be presented with a list of available devices to which you can cast your movie. Choose your Chromecast and you are ready to go!
