How to Watch Disney Plus Offline on iPad without App

Recently, I saw someone ask this question “My daughter’s iPad can't download the app due to iOS 11. Also have tried logging in and streaming from the website itself but it keeps telling us to download the app, Any ideas ???”

Watch Disney Plus Offline on iPad

Although it is possible to watch Disney Plus on an iPad without the app, you do need the right version of the video player. Unfortunately, your old iPad has reached that point they aren't powerful enough to run new apps. Totally iOS 11 is too old to support that. Also, the demanding resolution and stream decoding might require a more capable device. In other words, if the iPad doesn't work with iPad 13, Disney Plus probably won't play on it.

From the Disney Plus help center, Disney Plus app can only be installed on Apple mobile devices (requires iOS 14.0 or later) or Apple iPad (iPadOS 14.0 or later), or else, you need to look for other methods to watch Disney Plus videos on your iPad.
