Disney Movies Anywhere is a great idea, especially if you have kids, but there’s been one major problem with it until today.  It was only for PC or Apple/iOS devices.

It should be no secret that Disney has heavy ties to Apple.  Before his passing, Steve Jobs was on the Board of Directors for Disney due to being a major shareholder because of the sale of Pixar to Disney back in 2006.  Since then, Disney has been notorious for releasing mobile apps to Apple devices before Android gets it.  Sometimes, Android never even gets certain apps.  Fortunately, this is not the case for the newly released Android version of the Disney Movies Anywhere app.  I just finished installing it on my Android device and was quite impressed with what I saw.

After installing the app and logging in with your Disney account, you’ll be given the option to link to your iTunes or Google Play account.  This makes future purchases more easily integrated from the app to the app store of your choosing.  I was even gifted with a digital copy of Wreck-it Ralph for connecting the app to my Google Play account!

As expected, all digital copies of my previous Disney movies that I redeemed with a Disney Movie Rewards code were there.  You even have the option of downloading a copy to your device! This would be ideal for watching when you aren’t on a Wi-Fi connection, though I would highly recommend doing the initial download of the movie over Wi-Fi.  Disney’s “Frozen” measured in at about 1.4GB and the quality is impressive!

Disney’s also done a pretty smart thing in including Disney Movie Rewards in the app.  After all, those Magic Codes are what can get you digital copies in the first place.

You also have access to the same bonus features and shorts that are available on the DVD or Blu-ray disc that you bought.  So, you’re getting more than just the movie itself through the app.
