The dedicated Disney export provides integrated checks for:

allowed number of text lines (limited to 2 lines per specifications);

Aspect Ratio

Effectively defines the intended display aspect ratio (DAR) of the root container. This attribute controls the mapping of the root container to the related video object. For example 4:3 region will be mapped approximately 20% from the left edge of an image frame with an aspect ratio of 16:9, or 10% from the left edge of an image frame with an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Note: Please mind that Disney+ require Intended Display Aspect Ratio to be set to either "4:3" or "16:9".

None - doesn't recut or offset the subtitles and they will be exported with their original timing.

Manual - allows you manually specify the offset for the recut.

Auto - automatically offsets the timing using the first subtitle's In-cue. All timecodes are offset backward with the first subtitle's In-cue rounded down to the closes hour. For example if the first subtitle originally starts at 10:00:32:21 after applying the recut it's start time will become 00:00:32:21.
