You can also download Disney+ by simulating your geographical position. As the application is only available in a handful of countries, you only need to use a VPN with a Dutch, American, Canadian or Australian server to bypass the geographical restriction of Google Play.

Once your VPN is activated, clear the Google Play application cache to access the Dutch catalogue. In some cases, it is better to use a second Google account for this method to work. If, despite everything, the application does not appear in the catalog, you simply have to open the Disney + Google Play link method while being connected behind the VPN.
