Netflix Desperately Needs This One Incredible Feature Available on Disney+

November 12th is basically a national holiday, as it's the day Disney+ finally sees the light of day.

We've been not so patiently waiting for the Disney-based streaming service to roll out for a year or so now, and we couldn't be more excited with all it has to offer. From our favorite Disney classics like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid to brand new original content like The Mandalorian and Lady and the Tramp, the limit of the amount of shows and movies we're about to consume does not exist.

See you in 2020, because we've got a ton of Disney content to catch up on, along with Fox, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Try saying that three times fast.

Apart from watching all the classic and original content we can, there's one particular feature on Disney+ we want to point out. This has seriously changed the game, and Netflix needs to take note.

Brought to our attention by Reddit user filmivore on the Disney Plus Reddit thread, we've learned that Disney+ allows users the ability to turn off automatic trailers. This truly is the technology we've been waiting for.
