Is it true, as reported in The Guardian, that some shows run with a warning “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.” ??

Really? Is this what the world has come to?

I would prefer getting a warning instead of outright censorship.  Though it is not like "Song of the South" will ever be available.

Looking over what is available I have come to realize the shows I want to watch again are either from my youth or from the my children's youth. Will the shows hold up or perhaps it was simply the company I was with, while first watching them, which made them special?

As a piece of animation history, I understand the desire for it to be available in some form (although Disney+ would definitely be the wrong format for that.) As a piece of entertainment, I don't understand the interest. I remember it as being a boring wait for the Br'er Rabbit segments. Disney doesn't seem to be afraid of the Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, and Br'er Bear (see Splash Mountain), so I'd rather they just create new animation for them. Perhaps minus the unfortunate imagery and epithet of the Tar Baby.

My father has a VHS tape of SONG that I've viewed. 
It is indeed a boring wait for the Br'er Rabbit segments.

There is nothing on Disney+ that interests me right now that I don't own in one format or another already. 

This reminds me of when the Disney Channel first launched back in the early 80s. A lot of stuff I didn't know existed and wouldn't miss if I did. 

I am looking forward to the new Marvel content that is coming up in the next year.

"A lot of stuff I didn't know existed and wouldn't miss if I did. "

Just about sums it up for me. As far reaching and impressive as their back-catalog is, I'm pretty sure I've already seen every existing Disney/Marvel/Pixar movie I want to see - have no desire to pay for the privilege to see them again.

The Mandalorian* looks interesting and some of the Marvel shows have potential, but that's nowhere near enough of a reason for me to subscribe to yet another streaming service.

*And since Disney+ wont launch in the UK until next year, long after that show has finished, I expect everyone who really wants to The Mandalorian will already have watched it via some other shady 'online method.'

I loved REBELS. It feels kind of like if the Fantastic Four were in Star Wars, if that makes sense. They had a family vibe in a good way.

I'll probably end up with a subscription bundled with Hulu at some point. 

I really hope they fix the Simpsons though because my daughter is about old enough to start watching them and I'd like them to be in as good a shape as possible.

I worry that Disney will ALWAYS be Disney-ish and keep tight reigns on "the good stuff" and over time restrict things further (versus add things).

I'm enjoying the content thus far. So much at my beckon call and no hurray to try and watch it all. With more original stuff on the way.
First thing I watched was STEAMBOAT WILLIE and a couple of toons from the '30s/'40's (love that animation). Seemed apropos.
MANDALORIAN  was entertaining and has me looking forward to the next episode.
I've started my rewatch of AGENT CARTER. Like visiting an old friend.So refreshing. 
Eventually I will start REBELS, I've heard good things about it over the years.
No problems here with the SIMPSONS Daniel, is it a regional thing?
At about $4 dollars a month for the the next 3 years, WELL worth it!

THE SIMPSONS is an everywhere thing. They're being presented in cropped widescreen format, so we're not actually getting all of the animation. 

And they left out the Michael Jackson episode.
