Thanks to Disney Plus, kids can watch timeless movies in Chinese! Since we’re raising multilingual children in the United States, we’re always looking for videos to make our minority language extra fun. Nowadays, it’s easy to watch Disney Pixar movies in Mandarin Chinese.
All you have to do is change the language setting in the Disney + app or website. I’ll show you how to change the language and share the best Disney movies in Mandarin Chinese.

Here’s how to change the Disney + language on an iPad:
- After you’ve picked a movie to watch, look for the tiny audio and subtitles menu icon in the top right corner of the screen.

Where can you buy translated Disney Pixar Blu-ray DVDs?
When my kids were younger, we watched Chinese movies on Blu-ray DVDs before Disney Plus was available.
Thanks to Disney+, we usually don’t need Blu-rays and DVDs. However, you might consider looking for a DVD if a certain Disney Plus movie is unavailable in your language.
The good news is that Yes Asia has some Disney Pixar Blu-rays in Mandarin Chinese. Although the price of each movie is high, they offer free international shipping.
If you’re thinking about getting Disney Blu-ray DVDs, keep these tips in mind:
- Look for Hong Kong, Taiwanese, or Korean editions. Blu-ray discs in these regions tend to have dubbing in multiple Asian languages, including Mandarin.
- In contrast to Blu-rays, DVDs are usually region-specific and only work on region-free DVD players.
Where can you buy Disney Pixar DVDs in other languages?
European language versions of Disney movies are sometimes included with English DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
For example, the Frozen Blu-ray and DVD on Amazon include English, Spanish, and French audio and subtitles. Double-check the product specifications because every movie is different.
