The idea is great but lacks in execution 2/5
I love the idea of this app and my son loves it too. However, I am encountering all of the same issues others have from months ago to even a year ago. The app freezes when trying to open an episode or book, it freezes after a task was completed, or I get a complete black screen. Also, why are there so few episodes? There isn’t a search option to see if other episodes are archived anywhere. This is disappointing since I finally found a safe app that I thought I wouldn’t have to constantly help or check on what my son was doing. I’m even more disappointed because my son absolutely loves this and that I paid for a subscription for something that doesn’t even work 50% of the time.
I CANT DOWNLOAD THE APP!
Lost all of my books... here now? 2/5
So I purchased a ton of books in the storybook app and now that app is gone - with all of my previous purchases.
Is this app just going to ditch all of the books on me too? And I can’t seem to find the kindle version of this app...
Waste of money 1/5
Awful! Constantly saying it can’t connect to the App Store so they won’t download. I don’t even mind paying because my son loves Appisodes but this is frustrating for both of us!!! Very disappointed.
I hate this app 1/5
Just get Netflix, it’s better, except that app you need to pay it, AND ALAO EVERYTHING IS PAYING.
I don't like that most things you have to buy I really don't like that. What if some kids don't even like Mickey Mouse at all. DisneyNOW is better. On the commercials you say that everything is free but nothing is free but that one Mickey Mouse thing which apparently I don't like Mickey Mouse
Great product, sub standard quality 3/5
Disney is usually Great about quality, and while the app is really fun, that app is very unstable and is prone to crash CONSTANTLY, to the point of completely breaking
Doesn’t even work anymore 1/5
Was good now it won’t turn on. Sham... we have an iPad mini. can’t delete it either...
Unfair to little kids who like the shows 1/5
Hi Disney, if u r reading this, I’m a kid. When I was around 5 years old, I downloaded this app and I was exited to interact with my favorite characters. After I downloaded it, I happily tapped the app, got in then... TOO MANY PURCHASES!!! Only 1 episode was free. It’s unfair to kids who r exited to be in the episode but then realize that their parents say no to getting more episodes. MOST parents say NO. It’s heart breaking to a little kid and they throw a tantrum that YOU caused! If at least MOST of the episodes were free I would rate this at least 4 stars but I hate it so 1 star. Disney, reply if u can.
WOW DONT EVEN TRY TO MAKE US BUY IT 1/5
By toni seaberry
I loved the app untill thing start changing u couldn’t buy the books any more CHANGE IT BACK PLS WE WONT TRUSt ThAT SCAM
Waist of money 1/5
This app used to be amazing until they made a bunch of changes to it. You used to be able to purchase the “books” individually now you only have the option to pay a monthly fee they add on to your phone bill. They should have gave you the option for either one. Then after they changed it I had to download the update. Trying to update it caused the app to black out and now I don’t have access to it at all. It won’t even allow me to remove it from my device. I contacted Disney’s customer service and after jumping through hoops for them for 3 months I still haven’t been able to access the games I purchased previous to the changes they made or able to delete the game from my device. When I asked them to reimburse me for the games I purchased since I can’t access them their response was they could not access Apple’s billing system, but when you contact Apple say Disney has to refund it. So now I’m out of the money and my son can’t play his games, but has to look at every day and gets upset. This is the WORST experience I have ever had with an app! I have learned my lesson though and I will not be purchasing anything from Disney again. They are overpriced and careless of their customers.
This game is horrible 1/5
It just won’t let me play it before I had it and I could play it all I wanted and now I won’t let me do anything???? I was super boring all you do is go in and you have to sit there and try to tap it to make it work and I had all these apps when I was little and it was one of these it had all these little sections and now I can’t get them anymore and I was super hard because all you do is tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap and it does nothing☹️ why should I ever got this game if it does nothing at all like are you do is try to on the like I try to just like play it and I going to like the Mickey Mouse thing and I want to like play that and then it won’t let me because I can’t go in because all I just tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap and nothing happens like what do I do when nothing happens it’s just boring so all I have to do is just tap it in and nothing happens☹️😡☹️😞🙁😕😟😔 all I do is just tap tap tap tap and nothing happens it’s just a super boring game and nothing happens because you have to pay for it when I didn’t you didn’t have to pay for it along time ago and I have to pay for it to work which literally I already paid for it now on let me go in😡🥵😤 please fix it please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please fix it
Not family friendly - too expensive 1/5
Don’t bother with this if you have more than one toddler. Disney requires each member of a family share to pay the subscription separately, but advertises that the app is family share compatible. Go with Nickelodeon instead, no costs involved.

good job for youngsters 5/5
Best app for kids 5/5
I had many programs for my child to have fun and this the best one so far! It allows my child to have fun and play safer too! So I suggest this app for first time parents it works great.-new in motherhood
Shame on Disney 1/5
This clearly has been and still is an issue...yet developers have done absolutely nothing to resolve it. No explanation, no refund...and you don’t even deserve the one star I had to give.
Does this ever work? 2/5
Fun app when it works. It rarely works though. Nothing downloads properly and the app closes abruptly most of the time.
Best travel app for kids 4/5
Let me start with how much we love this app! The stories are amazing, there is always new content to explore, and our 3 year old is following along with the words!
Instead of sitting her down to watch TV providing an interactive experience that allows her to explore her favorite worlds is amazing to watch!
*request: I would love a way to filter books or appisodes for content. We travel a lot and on the airplane to only see downloaded content would be great! Also at bed time to be able to filter books for reading level would be a real blessing!
I advise anyone with kids who love Disney content to subscribe and support the developer, this is well worth the money!
👧🏼👁📱my little sis (sister) loves it
Why is this app not updating?
I had to update the app and it is still running as if it needed to update but the icon is finished
Great idea bad quality 2/5
By Mrs Ludwig
It is quite frustrating that I have paid for this app monthly and it is hit or miss if it works correctly. I keep thinking they will fix the bugs and it will be fine. Multiple months later same issues even after updates. 🥺
Happy and now unhappy 1/5
We use to love this app until the subscription. We thought we’d try the subscription and once we did it uninstalled all the games that we had purchased and we had to reinstall them. We also can’t use the exclusive games offline. We had used this a lot for trips and now are very disappointed. Once our month is over we will cancel and be done with it. Too bad. Way to ruin a great product.
I’m so ANGRY! We can’t purchase any new Appisodes because they are subscription only. But we do t use the subscription because it crashes and it can’t be used if there is no WiFi. FAIL....
Keeps on freezing! 1/5
I have downloaded, deleted and re-downloaded for like five times tonight and it keeps on freezing. This is ridiculous!
Update won’t work 3/5
The latest update won’t work 😩
Rarely works. Causes more frustration than fun 1/5
The app is very buggy. It’ll simply remove episodes semi-randomly, sometimes even after a couple hours, even though I have plenty of space on my ipad.
When it works, my daughter enjoys it, but she gets frustrated when she can’t use it because, once again the app has removed all downloaded material. There is no control setting to modify when material is removed, so there’s nothing you can do to reduce or prevent the inconvenience.
I just downloaded Disney Appisodes for my four year old grandson, as Disney Now no longer works on his iPad. I had high hopes that he would be able to watch and play (not as passive as Disney now). I was more than willing to pay the monthly fee after the seven day trial period. He had the app for 30 minutes and it’s being deleted already. It just doesn’t work consistently. He was having fun when it worked but it didn’t respond properly so often that he said, “I don’t want to do this Gigi, I’m going to play with magnitiles.”
I guess that explains my one star.
If only the videos stayed downloaded 2/5
This app is really great but i can’t put up with the constant need to redownload episodes since my daughter keeps trying to load new ones. There needs to be a “Downloaded” section instead of being mixed with each other or at least a parental code instead of ok or cancel a download. It seems to hold more on my iPhone than our iPad tablet (even though I keep deleting apps to make space) and not more than 4 videos stay loaded. The purpose of subscribing was so she could play on the iPad while we r on long trips and it’s just unfortunate that if we r without signal and she tries loading new things, somehow, she loses all videos and can’t play anything. Idk why it happens but I already canceled the subscription after 2.5 weeks and won’t renew unless I hear about a major update.
I love it when people are like to be friends for sure when you are nice to the appisods
Great in theory, not in application. 2/5
My kids love this app, and in theory it’s a fantastic idea. They can play in all their favorite episodes of their favorite shows! Except for one thing...it only works about 25% of the time. My kids will select an apposide, play it for a while, and have it freeze mid action in one of the interactive parts. It won’t move on once the task is completed. The other issue, it that in the main screen, you can select an appisode, hear the sound it makes when you touch it, then nothing opens! It never leaves the main screen! It DOESN’T open the appisode MUCH more than it does.
I’ve tried everything to rectify this myself, I’ve tried 4 different devices, I’ve restarted each device, completely closed and restarted the app, and deleted and reinstalled the app (on all the devices). It still doesn’t work right. And apparently, reading these reviews, this is an ongoing problem that Disney has no intention of fixing.
My kids will be sad because they loved it on the occasion it worked, but I may be canceling our subscription. I won’t continue to pay for something that rarely works.
Skip it 1/5
At first this was a decent but slightly expensive app but with the new model of subscription only exclusives it’s not worth it. Second for what ever reason after the new update I can’t even get it to download on fully on my phone, it’s just stays halfway loaded and we haven’t been able to use it since.
Can’t download what I’ve already purchased 4/5
This used to work fine, but over the past couple of months my kids haven’t been able to use it. At this point, if I try to restore purchases it always tells me I can’t do so while downloading an appisode. The only thing is I’M NOT DOWLOADING ANYTHING. I haven’t been able download anything. I’ve even tried removing the app and re-installing it and nothing works. Waste of time, waste of money.
Update: after about 5 months, the app appears to be fixed, and the appisodes have finally become downloadable. Fingers crossed that it stays up and running, because my kids really do enjoy it when it works!
Super disappointing 1/5
The app crashes the downloads won’t stay downloaded and you want us to pay for this monthly????!!!😡👎👎👎
By gata garcia
Been trying all day to update Disney Appisodes all I’m getting is the Circle but not completeing the process very annoying as I pay monthly for this app 🤔
Looking for a safe video app for my 5 year old and was pleased to find this, but I can’t do anything with it. At first I thought that I needed to subscribe to get the content so I signed up for the free trial, but I still can’t view any videos. Even after subscribing I keep seeing “subscribe now” and when I click on it I get a message that I’m already subscribed. I’ve done this multiple times. I don’t see anywhere to view or download videos on my phone. I tried it on my kid’s older iPad and I was able to see the videos, but when I click on one it asks if I want to download it from the cloud so I click “yes” but nothing ever happens. It keeps giving me the same message over and over. I was really hoping this would be a good safe app for my kids to watch videos, but I am going to cancel my subscription before my free trail ends since it’s useless to me.
The interactive is not kid friendly 2/5
My daughter is constantly asking to get her through the interactive part because it’s not kid friendly, plus it’s always freezing. I want a refund
Frustrating. Download if you want to get mad 1/5
Doesn’t work. Waste of money
Never worked properly 1/5
By Do not install/subscribe
This app is heavily advertised on Disney Jr. which My 2 yr old loves to watch. I thought it would be great for times we are away from home and or long car rides. The app doesn’t function as it should. I have the latest IPhone with max amount of storage and I have the highest speed data plan on the market and still this app stalls and is very laggy. My 2 yr old gets upset once the app forces a restart and freezes. It’s a shame I wanted this to work but unfortunately Disney hasn’t fix the bugs. I read reviews and thought maybe my iPhone is better but it’s not the case at all. Disney your a billion dollar company and you can’t get this app right?! 😖😖😖.
My brother loves it
NO MORE SUBSCRIPTION!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡 4/5
By Jose Velez Jr.
I like this app but please GET RID OF THE SUBSCRIPTION I WANT MORE APPISODES TO BE FREE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nothing will download anymore. 1/5
By Caitlin 7636
This app was a favorite when we first got it a couple years ago. We purchased SEVERAL appisodes (NOT CHEAP EITHER), but ever since it turned into a subscription service, now none of our previously purchased appisodes will download. Mickey Mouse Road Ralley (the free one) still works, but that’s all. I figured I would give Disney some time to work out the kinks in their new system, but nope. It’s been a long time since my son has been able to use this app. I am hesitant to delete it because I have spent so much money purchasing individual appisodes, but I have lost hope that this app will ever work again, and I am NOT spending more money on a subscription. This app was great, but now it’s a useless waste of space. Very disappointing, and I think I deserve a refund for all the appisodes I purchased that I can no longer access.
It worked fine then they updated it or something and now nothing works... Paid for months and it hasn't worked.
Too expensive to be so buggy. 1/5
Fun and interactive for kids, if you can get it to work and stay working. Crashes and freezes often. New appisode and shared family purchases and were very problematic and customer support only emailed me a copy of FAQs.
Five Reasons Why I Hate This App 1/5
There are five reasons why I hate this stupid app.
Here they are:
1. It costs money. 2. This isn't for children, it's for toddlers. 3. It's very repetitive. It's the same sounds in the stories (storY, rather) over and over bc there are only so many things to tap. 4. It's the same story over and over again. You have to pay for ALL the others. 5. It's annoying.
Can you imagine a toddler just staring at a screen for 12 hours and having ONE STUPID STORY to explore with limited things to tap and hearing "it's simply diviiiiiiiiiiiiiiine" on a song over and over again?
DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!
I’m have a serious issue 1/5
I just downloaded last while my child was sleeping. And he has been playing on it for maybe one or two games, before it started flashing. All the appisodes are flashing leaving the yellow back ground. But I can’t get out of it. Can’t close the app or turn off my tablet. It’s stuck on this flashing crap. How do I make it stop.
We actually love the app itself. It allows my son to watch his favorite shows on the go without WiFi, unlike the regular Disney Junior App. However, it's irritating that every time we update we have to re-download EVERY EPISODE. You can only do one at a time and it takes like 15 minutes per episode. It really is frustrating, especially since I've subscribed to the app and would expect better. Please fix! And we have multiple devices but can’t figure out how to use our subscription in the other devices even though Family Sharing is turned on.
