Disney Movie Rewards to Become Disney Movie Insiders, New App Launching on September 26th

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Disney fans will have more ways than ever to be rewarded when Disney Movie Rewards becomes Disney Movie Insiders on September 26th.

The transition was announced at the Disney Movie Rewards’ member celebration at Disney California Adventure. Members will continue to receive points for Disney films, either by seeing them in theaters or by purchasing them on home video, but there are some changes. Disney Movie Insiders will offer more points for purchasing movie tickets, and digital movie purchases will now also earn points.

And of course, there will continue to be a variety of rewards offered for these points, but new to the program is the ability to donate points to charity through Disney Team of Heroes. As The Walt Disney Company explains, “Disney Team of Heroes combines Disney’s beloved characters with the unparalleled creativity of its employees and cast members to bring classic stories to life in innovative ways that are designed to reduce the anxiety of a hospital stay.”

Also announced were a new app for Disney Movie Insiders, as well as “content, member exclusives, interactive experiences, and more.”

All Disney Movie Rewards accounts that have been logged into within the last five years will automatically transition to Disney Movie Insiders accounts on September 26th. All points in member accounts will be moved over during the transition. If you haven’t logged into your Disney Movie Rewards account in five or more years and wish to transition over to Disney Movie Insiders, you must log into your current account before September 23rd.

Are you excited for the change? Let us know in the comments below!

Could be an improvement, but we have to see when it launches. Pros: DMR launched way back when people bought a lot of DVDs and CDs, so the program was all about physical media. So, a change to recognize digital sales is welcome and long overdue. What would be really nice is if it will also recognize membership in Disney+. Why would I even buy downloads if I get those movies via Disney+? This is where the world is moving next, so might as well be ready now. Cons: Not sure yet, my biggest fear is that they might take… Read more »

The CEO makes crazy money and they cannot start it as promised on Sept 26…..Not even an announcement on the new Disney Movie Insiders site what the delay is all about.
Hello house of mouse is anybody home.
If I lose my points during the transition process I will sue the Disney Corp.
That is unbelieveable. Shame on B. Iger

Streaming will never have the visual clarity and sound quality you achieve from playing a physical Blu-Ray. So I hope discs continue to be sold far into the future. I only wish Disney would offer 3D discs in the U.S. instead of having to import them from the U.K.. And then you can’t redeem the rewards points for them. That’s where my last four movies have came from. Seems like kind of a rip-off to me. I’d also like to see more movie posters offered as rewards. Thanks for giving us something in the way of rewards, we know you… Read more »

Dear Disney CEO Robert Iger, C.C; News 2 Editor Danny Finnegan, WXII Editor Nikole began Ok, it’s Oct. 2nd 2019 and Still No Disney Movie Rewards/ Disney Movie Insider. I for one believe we the consumer(s) deserve an explanation! Most if Not all of the Disney Movie Rewards members have purchased and continue to purchase Disney media/products to accumulate “points” for an advertisement on these products to support the Disney Corporation and continue our loyal patronage. Would anyone at #DisneyMovieRewards care to give an explination as to what the delay is, why we the consumer(s) have not been notified until… Read more »

What a major DISAPPOINTMENT! According to Disney’s previous statement stating there would be more to look forward to. It seems s thought it’s just the opposite! & Disney seems to care less and Not want to comment. “And of course, there will continue to be a variety of rewards offered for these points, but new to the program is the ability to donate points to charity through Disney Team of Heroes. As The Walt Disney Company explains, “Disney Team of Heroes combines Disney’s beloved characters with the unparalleled creativity of its employees and cast members to bring classic stories to… Read more »

It has launched…not a surprise…most of the rewards were eliminated and now there are just a handful of items. Once again, Disney takes a step backwards.

Seems to be more than a step back! More like they have fallen off. Promising more & changing to offer less. Pretty sad. On a personal level rather that continue to support Disney as a loyal “Rewards member” & owning about every VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, 3D Disney and Now 4K as well as Disney games, collectables, Toys and annual trips to Disney world with my wife 4 children & other family members. I believe it’s time to reinvest in other companies & attractions with more loyalty and Honesty toward their Loyal patrons & consumers!

Sure wish I had known to use up the points on the movies they were offering prior to the change. I would have thought they would still be able to offer them after the change at least for a little while. Very disappointed and now stuck with close to 4000 points that in their eyes are worth about $5 / 525 pts. Only real thing to get is gift cards.
