Watch Dora - Dora Episodes Guide!
From my experience raising two daughters, when they love a show or movie, they can watch it over and over. It's quite a phenomenon and it's one thing that most children have in common. Regarding watching Dora episodes, you have a few different options these days. Old school Dora DVD videos are still around (see our full Dora DVD guide here) but now you have the option of either renting videos or watching full episodes from virtually every season from streaming services like Netflix or Amazon. The best part about watching episodes online is that your children can use a smartphone, tablet, computer, gaming console or set top box to for viewing. It's added versatility which can come in handy if your children are getting restless in public somewhere and you need some quick and easy entertainment for them.
Based on my own personal experience, the nagging children asking to watch Dora isn't something that passes in just a year. No, this will last a couple or more years. Don't expect the Dora the Explorer adoration to disappear in a few months!
Watching Dora online makes a lot more sense now than it did even a couple years ago. With the generous data plans available from providers these days, letting your child watch online via Netflix or Amazon is a lot more practical and less expensive. With the fragile nature of DVD discs, streaming episoldes online means there is literally nothing your child can damage!
Cost for online streaming isn't overly expensive beyond your mobile data plan. If you make use of wifi, then you're just looking at the subscription fees or rental fees from places like Amazon. As an example, Amazon.com has all the Dora the Explorer episodes available to watch via their "Amazon Prime Video" service. That is a monthly service or you can also just buy/rent individual episode on their own. There are 9 Dora season which means a LOT of watching. You will pay about $1.99 per episode if you're not part of the Amazon monthly service which can add up in a hurry.
There are a LOT of Dora seasons, episodes and movies available to buy or watch online. So I want to help you with picking the best of the bunch. It's safe to say there are no "bad" episodes of Dora, but certainly some are more memorable than others. Regarding movies and videos, you're putting money out so naturally making the right choice is more important. We have some Dora movie reviews below.
YouTube is a popular video stream platform, but a big word of caution here. DO NOT go onto regular YouTube for watching Dora episode or movies because it's not what you think it is. What you will find is that people have edited voices on the videos, made jokes, added swearing and other bad things that you simply don't want your child exposed to. Trust me on this one. If you want to see safe free Dora videos and episodes online, then you can check out YouTube Kids for Apple or Android devices. Check out the app here. The legitimate Dora videos get removed from YouTube because of copyright infringement; all that's left are the modified adult orientated videos.
When shopping for physical Dora DVDs or Blu-ray videos, there is a great selection available online. Prices are very reasonable and you should pay anywhere from $7 USD to $15 USD for newer Dora movies. We also suggest looking on craigslist for Dora the Explorer collections that people might be selling for cheap. Keep in mind that scratched discs may be a risk when looking at used.
We know having an episode guide it important, so please enjoy and download this PDF file here (source: howstuffworks.com) with a listing of every Dora the Explorer Episode from the first four seasons! We will be adding the newer seasons as well in the coming weeks.
