Important Note: The invite can only be sent from the internet.

But you can view GroupWatch family and friends sessions from any smart TV screen or device that’s connected to Disney+.

Step 2: Your friends and family receive your Disney Plus GroupWatch invitation link.

At the moment, you can share your GroupWatch party experience with up to 6 (six) people at a time.

If you ask me, that’s just about the perfect size for a great at-home movie night!

While you’re watching your favorite Disney classic or a new release, you and every other person in your party has the ability to control the action:

  • pause
  • fast-forward
  • rewind

All of these actions will take place for the whole group and it lets everyone know who pressed pause or rewind, so use your power wisely! 😉
