If you want a more complete solution, you can opt for an Android emulator, such as BlueStacks for example. This software, in fact, allows you to create a virtual environment equipped with the Android operating system, through which you can download, install and use apps, exactly as if you were in front of a tablet or smartphone running Google operating system.

BlueStacks is compatible with Windows and macOS and is free to use. To download the apps (including Disney +) through the Play Store it is essential to have a Google account: if you don’t have one, you can easily create Google account here.

How to download Disney Plus movies on PC

The only way to download Disney Plus movies on PC and watch them even in the absence of the Internet is to use the virtual app via Android emulator, as I showed you a moment ago: applications for smartphones and tablets, in fact, provide the possibility to download the contents and watch them even in offline mode.

Although it is possible to take advantage of this feature also through BlueStacks (and other Android emulators), the quality of the video stream may be affected, due to the emulation mechanism that underlies everything. In some cases, moreover, the download may not be successful, due to the restrictions imposed by the virtual environment: keep these possibilities in mind, before even moving on.

In any case, to download a Disney + content, start BlueStacks , open the Disney + app by recalling it from the drawer and, if necessary, log in to your account. Now, locate the content of your interest, click on its preview and, to download it, press the down arrow symbol that resides in the information sheet.

The films, series and, in general, all content downloaded in this way can be viewed, at any time and even in the absence of the Internet, by accessing the Download section of the app (the down arrow symbol which resides in the lower of the same).
