We have a Guest account with Goofy as the icon. You can choose from dozens of classic Disney favorites, from Mickey and Friends characters to Star Wars and much more.

If you have a Disney+ subscription to and you have a Vizio Smart TV, there’s good news and bad news…

For the good news, you can watch Disney+ on your Vizio TV. The bad news is that they do not currently have a Disney Plus native, built-in app for Vizio.

Even so, there is a way! And when you’re done here, you won’t have to ask, “How do I get Disney Plus on my Vizio TV?” You’ll be streaming The Lion King and Jeff Goldblum with the rest of us!

Step 1: Turn on your Vizio Smart TV

Step 2: You will need to SmartCast the content from your other Apple Device, such as an iPhone or iPad with the Disney+ app installed, or using a MacBook or iMac computer with the AirPlay feature.

Note: According to the Vizio website, “Currently, these features are available on 2019, 2018, 2017 SmartCast Televisions, and 2016 UHD SmartCast models.”

That’s all there is to it for now. If you follow these steps to SmartCast or AirPlay Disney Plus to your Vizio TV, you should be all set. Until Vizio gets a built-in app, this is the best option for Vizio Smart TV owners.
