Online streaming has come a long way with a lot of major companies throwing in their own services. That said, while we may be able to stream high-quality content anywhere thanks to better internet connections, these services still run into the occasional bug and glitch.

In this article, we’re talking about Disney+ error code 41, its causes and what you can do to fix the problem.

What causes this error?

The error is mainly triggered by a traffic surge towards a particular title. Other possible causes include:

  • Spotty internet connection.
  • VPN or proxy issues.
  • Server outage at Disney Plus.

How to fix this?

Here are nine fixes you can try out.

Try again after some time

As mentioned before, the error is often caused by a traffic surge over a paritcular title. If you’re trying to watch something that recently released or is popular at the moment, there’s a chance that right now there are far too many requests for a single asset for the servers to handle. Try waiting for sometime before accessing the content again to see if that helps. 

Restart the app

Closing the app entirely and starting it again is a relatively simple fix that gets the job done. Whether you’re on a PC, your phone, console or a TV, close the app and try relaunching it to see if the Disney+ error code 41 gets resolved. 

Check internet connection

This is a good time to check whether or not you have an active internet connection. If you’re on WiFi, make sure you’ve got an active link and that there are no signal issues. On cellular data, ensure that it’s enabled and that you’re getting good network coverage. 

Restarting your router can help get rid of a bunch of seemingly random internet and connectivity issues that may be hindering your connection to the Disney+ servers. 

Sign out of the service

Signing out and then signing back in again can also give the app a much-needed refresh. Regardless of your platform, try signing out of your account and signing in again to see if that fixes your problem. 

Disable VPN

Another possible cause for the issue could be because you’re using a VPN. Many streaming services are geo-restricted due to content copyright issues, and using a VPN can cause problems with their functionality and content availability causing the error.

Switch browsers

Sometimes, a glitch in your browser can also trigger this error. If you’re seeing the problem happen in your usual browser, try accessing Disney Plus using another browser to see if the issue is with your browser or Disney Plus itself. 

Check for server outages

Next up, check to see if there are any server outages. Although rare, server outages can leave services useless as there’s nothing you can do in such situations. Check Disney+’s official social media accounts of Disney+ or services like DownDetector to see if there’s something wrong with the servers. 

Update the Disney+ app

The next step is to look for an update for the app. If there’s something wrong, chances are the developers are already working on a fix, and an update is already on the way. Check to see if there’s an update available on the device you’re using and if there is, install it immediately and try again. 

Reinstall the app

If updating didn’t do the trick, try reinstalling the app to see if that does the trick. Regardless of the platform, reinstalling the app can eliminate any corrupt files that may be hampering the app’s functionality.
