I was on unlimited plan so Verizon offered Disney Plus for one year for free, with option to cancel. A few months later I switched to Shared data plan, I received noticed from Verizon I no longer quailified for free promo. I went on My Verizon and tried to cancel app (many times over four day period) When I clicked cancel orange banner would come up can not complete at this time.
I called Verizon and they walked me through same steps with same results. They tried to deactivate and couldn't, They would put a ticket in and it would be removed. Checked a week later still there and I still couldn't cancel. I went to Disney site and tried to cancel and it says third party billing click on link for Verizon, which takes you back to Verizon.

I am cancelling my account with Verizon for the similar reasons. The nightmare with Disney is more than what I can deal with right now. Feel like they make me run in circles with advices that cannot be followed. And insisting that Disney should help me, when it clearly says the account is managed by Verizon is insulting.

I have this same problem and seems to be all over. I had Disney + subscription for free. Started getting charged $6.99, somehow had the $6 Hulu and ESPN+ part opted in and just want to cancel that part. I do not want Hulu and ESPN+, just Disney + and yet, I cannot cancel.
I have clicked cancel via Chrome on 3 different laptops.
I have clicked cancel on Safari on a MacBook.
I have cancelled through the MyVerizon App on my iPhone.
I have chatted with support on my iPhone who confirmed it was cancelled and it is still there.
I am being charged $6 a month for something I have tried to cancel repeatedly.
Better Business Bureau and FTC's Consumer Protection Agency are next along with looking into AT&T, T-Mobile or some other provider.
It is ridiculous the volume of time this has consumed for me to simply cancel a service I do not want. It is apparent Verizon is not solving this as it has been all over these Community threads for months.
