That’s it. DWTSWhat do Disney+ fans think of all the changes since the premiere of their first season? They had lots to say, surprise!
So #dwtsNight 1 of disney+ was not bad. I’m sure i’m not the only one who wishes for commercial breaks so that we can use the restroom without being buried in the live broadcast. But hey, this is more show.

Fans had many thoughts on Disney+’s move of DWTS. It’s the biggest shift for Season 31.
Am I the only one who’s pissed that #DWTSYou can’t watch it on Tv, and you need to subscribe to Disney+ in order to see it. The biggest mistake they could’ve ever made! 🖕🏻

Some viewers were not happy with the streaming service. This is a significant change from the ABC days.
i actually really enjoyed the show being on disney+… no commercial so it felt like things kept moving and having 2 hosts makes so much more sense #DWTS

Lawd Alfonso been on stage for all of 30 seconds and he’s already doing a better job hosting than Tyra 😭 #DWTS

I like no commercials. However, I still believe the switch from abc and Disney plus is a mistake. #DWTS

Fans were happy to see no commercials. They miss the show on ABC, however.
Why is this? #DWTSDo you hurry people to complete their post-dance interviews?? Saying they’re running out of time?? This streaming service is great! Is it running out of time?
