So far for me:
A little bit of the Mandalorian
A couple episodes of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
A couple of Mickey Mouse cartoons
And my daughter watched The Little Mermaid (her favorite). 
My wife seems interested in watching Boy Meets World 

Disney + may overtake the WWE Network as my favorite very quickly!

I didn’t get the super sweet deal others here did, but I still think the
price of admission is worth it.

Why the animated STAR WARS series episodes alone...

With my Verizon, I got a free year of Disney+ or some such, so check that out.

What did I like? Everything... except for the stuff that's not on Disney+.

Okay, we leave out "Song of the South." I'd like to see it again, but okay; I get it.

I wanted to watch "Condorman" - no sign of it.
I wanted to watch Marvel cartoons, but they only go back to "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends." So... no "Marvel Super-Heroes." No "Fantastic Four" by Hanna-Barbera. No original Spider-Man.

I couldn't find the shorts released after "Iron Man" - there were four short pieces, and unless I was looking for the wrong name (always a possibility with an old fart :), no sign.

The only sport Goofy I saw was "How to Ski" - I NEED "Hockey Homicide", dang it!

No Star Wars Christmas special. Hey, I've never seen it - don't judge.

Ah, well. Probably other small pieces I'll miss not seeing. On the other hand - I will never be able to drink this ocean held to my lips. I am REALLY looking forward to these!!!

No Condorman?  Dang.  I haven't had a chance to browse yet either.  Some people I know went right to Apple Dumpling Gang ha ha. 

I have heard that the early Simpsons episodes are cropped to 16x9 which obscures many of the jokes.  That sucks.  That was one thing I was looking forward to watching.

Eric, the SPIDER-WOMAN cartoon predates the Spider-Man cartoons by a few years. I'm hoping at some point we'll see the 60s Marvel cartoons.

I remember seeing Condorman in the theaters. That would be a nice movie to juxtapose just how far super hero movies have come. I picked up the first year deal here in Canada and so far the kids love it. I haven't had a chance to look through the library except for a quick browse, but for $90 CAN it looks like a good deal for the year.

Walt Disney’s Zorro is not there, so neither am I.

I never had problems connecting but the BUFFERING was awful.  Never made it more than five minutes of viewing before the dreaded spinning circle would show up.

Well Disney plus is not offered in my country. Netflix was available here almost from inception. They seemed to get around the problems of rights and territories by customizing their line up for different countries.* Hopefully Disney will follow suit especially since Netflix was already showing their Marvel, Star Wars and some Disney movies.  

*An interesting effect of this is that Trinidad is treated as a part of Latin America because we are so close. But we don't speak Spanish. So we sometimes get Chinese movies on Netflix that are dubbed and subtitled in Spanish. Makes for interesting viewing.

I had no issues streaming via the Apple Tv app. Browsed through some older
Disney and Marvel content, and was pleased with the first episode of The
Mandalorian.

Mark me (and my wife) as VERY pleased with The Mandalorian.  There wasn't much really drawing me to it in the advance previews and general concept, but I'm deeply impressed with it.  Great pacing, beautifully mounted.  Texturally, it feels a lot more like the original film, and I wonder if the smaller budget you'd have on a TV show might have helped in that department?  Favreau (who didn't direct this one but no doubt had a firm hand in the style) really has a grounded feel that makes the universe feel fully lived in again, a trick that hasn't happened with any of the Disney films so far.
