When we were away last week at HH, wife brought up why doesn't Disney have it for free in the DVC villas. Doesn't cost them anything and, people that don't have it may sign up after being spoiled having it... Makes sense doesn't it?

We brought our extra fire stick when we stayed at OKW last month. It worked great! We donít personally have Disney+ but our DD does and she put it on our fire stick. Installed the MLB app too so we were able to watch baseball every day as well.

Have used fire stick in room. Definitely bringing in Nov, so we can watch Mandalorian that Friday!
they should just provide Disney + for resort guests.

I mentioned to DH that we never turn on the TV in the rooms any more and he started laughing. Apparently, when we return the room I shower and immediately fall asleep while he watches TV. Who knew?

Did you use it via the resort wifi, or did you set it up with a hotspot on your cell? They should easily work with any TV with am HDMI port, I'm just surprised to consider that the resort wifi would be solid enough to carry that signal strength.

Yes used resort WiFi. I too was surprised that it supported streaming especially considering we had a 9 year old remote learning from the bedroom and SIL was work conferencing out on the patio all at the same time. SIL could have been using a hot spot....Iíll ask.
