Streaming on Disney Plus will give you access to hundreds if not thousands of new shows and movies. However, the vast selection that Disney offers also opens up to potential errors and bugs. Some users have reported that they are seeing the error code 73 when streaming on their Disney+ app.
What Does Error Code 73 Mean on Disney Plus?
While Disney+ is available to many countries all over the world, not all their contents are accessible to users around the globe who are streaming with the app. Some movies can be accessed in different countries in Europe but not in the US and vice versa.
Disney Plus error code 73 is a location or region issue. You will see the error message,
“Disney+ is only available in certain regions. Depending on where you are located, you may not be able to access Disney+. If you think you are seeing this message in error, visit the Disney+ Help Center (Error Code 73).”
It means that the streaming content you are trying to watch are not available in your indicated location. This error usually appears if you are using a VPN service to bypass the geo-restrictions set by Disney. Your chosen location in your VPN service is not included where the content is available for streaming, hence it’s throwing an error.
How Do I Fix Error Code 73 on Disney+?
Solution #1 – Disable Your VPN Service
Try to disable your VPN or proxy service first before relaunching your Disney+. If it works, the problem is with your VPN service. You may disable it each time you stream on Disney Plus, or you can look for another VPN service.
Here are some of the most well-known premium VPN service providers for streaming online content.
- Hotspot Shield

Solution #2 – Double Check Your IP Address
Your IP address may not match with your region or country. Double-check your IP Address and contact your network provider if your IP address is different even without a VPN.
