Best Disney Channel Original Movies

A list of the best movies created by Disney Channel

The Top Ten

1 Lemonade Mouth

This movie is the best DCOM ever for a bunch of reasons. One of them is the acting. Bridgit Mendler does an amazing job playing Olivia, you can feel her pain and sadness. Adam Hicks's acting is really good too because when you watch Lemonade Mouth, you understand when doesn't like change and can get snappy about it but still has a heart of gold. Hayley Kiyoko brought just the right amount of fire and ambition and determination needed to play Stella. Naomi Scott played Mo perfectly, because you can definitely tell Mo is under much pressure from her father to be a perfect Indian girl but just wants to be herself. Nick Roux as Scott was an awesome decision, he adds just the right amount of caring and chill to Scott without going overboard. Blake Michael acts Charlie very well and with his acting you believe Charlie is very in love with Mo. Chris Brochu played a good antagonist as Ray. The supporting actors and actresses also do an amazing job. The music is great as well. All of the songs ...more

This is a great movie. I really enjoyed it. It's one of the best, especially considering the recent DCOM. This is coming from a teen who is well beyond her Disney years. It's really nice to see a great movie like this when it seems like Disney has lost it's touch. It has a true message. You don't see many movies like this anymore.

2 High School Musical

High school musical is just a cute movie that is great for any age. There's something special about this movie that hits every other Disney Channel movie out of the park. You have great kids that you can look up to, amazing singing and dancing, and friends sticking together. And I don't think the amazing, blue eyed, talented Zac Efron hurts this movie in any way. Haha

This movie is too good to be true! 1st of all it has a great message about breaking free from the crowd and being you! I feel this is an amazing movie to watch at any age! Also has anybody else realized this is one of the only Disney Channel Original Movies to have a second and third movie made after it! I like the fact that it shows that one day all the high school fun will end! It's so true and realistic! Yeah sure no high school has everyone sing and dance in perfect routine to be honest I know I couldn't do that! But the story line is great!

Fantastic movie, & it's good to know that Disney is milking this and probably making millions from all the merchandise sold. Great plotline!

My favorite especially Troy and Gabriella - Kean420

3 Halloweentown

I love this and Halloweenton High



4 Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior

Such a good movie, but I just wish I could find it somewhere, it is a really great movie and I suggest watching for anyone who hasn't, I grew up on this movie as a kid and I just know you will all love it.

I thought Wendy wu was a so good I wanted to keep on watching it, I wish it kept on coming on T.V!

Love Brenda Song. Saw her on the Suite Life and her acting was great. Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior has a decent plot and well-written characters. Vote for Wendy Wu!

This movie is great as me as a child.
But the scene where that stone statue is a bit creepy.
But why does souls possess in different people.
But Food Boy is great in my opinion.

5 Camp Rock

The film is really awesome. However I how found a mistake, when Mitchie's mother finds a leaflet, when you look at the bottom of the page when it closes when they zoom out it closes again. It's been cut wrong.

I've watched this movie more then a dozen times! Its just awesome! I'll definitely watch it more times!

I think this movie is definitely the best on THIS list but, why isn't lemonade mouth on here? In my opinion that is the best and should be on this list! BE HEARD! BE STRONG! BE PROUD!

Best one! We rock! Camp rock!

6 16 Wishes

16 Wishes should be first. It teaches one moral values. Personally I think 16 wishes must be the best

This movie is really good! The moral of the story is amazing. It's interesting for everyone and teaches a really good lesson of appreciating what you have, and the people around you because one day they might not be there.

It teaches an amazing lesson. One of my favorite movies!

Be careful what you wish for

7 Princess Protection Program

LOVE this movie SO much!
Possibly the best Disney Channel original movies along side High School Musical, Camp Rock, And Radio Rebel.

It's a really funny and super cute movie.

I can't help but smile when I watch it, plus Demi Lovato's smile is quite contagious.

And I love both of these girls so much, Demi is like my role model

I just think this movie is very great. It reminds me of my friends. Friendship is the value that we can get in this movie.

Starring Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato the most loved pop stars and best friends in the universe! Very Good Movie!

8 Geek Charming

Geek Charming is kind of a similar story line to Cinderella but its backwards. You have this rich popular girl and this geeky nerdy boy. They meet up at school when this nerdy boy has toa project for class. They bond over time while doing the project and come to realize they like each other. It ends perfectly like it should have with them now together and a happy ending.
I'm not saying it was the greatest movie but it should definitely be in the top 5 if not top 5 for sure top 10. This was a great movie

Excuse me, how is this not first? THIS WAS AMAZING! It's so cute. This is coming from a 10 year old who watches Modern Family! I LOVE HER - maddyparrot22

Geek charming is nice story I don't know why it's number ten it's about a girl who is a shellfish person who has a sweet side to her self so now that I have told you about this fabulous movie put it up to 10 RIGHT NOW! Bye

Loved this as a little girl. Still love it.

9 Radio Rebel

It's so mazing their some moral lesson that you can get and also debby have a natural talent.. The way she act it's so natural

Very empowering movie. I was ready to go through the T.V. and yell that I was radio rebel. This is a must see movie and it will really make you happy.

She really insipired me... She teach all of the things it really help me... And also help me to be myself.

This is my absolute favorite DCOM next to Descendants. It's awesome, original, and inspiring.

13 High School Musical 2

I like ashley tisdale and company

High school musical 2 rocks love you vanessa hudgens

This movie should be way higher on this list. Really teaches you some lessons and also has amazing choreography, singing and dancing. And also featuring the amazing Zac Efron.

I also love this one with the song Your are the music in me - Kean420

14 Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie

Let's be serious. This is the 1st ever Disney series where the entire cast can act. Putting them in a movie? I cry every time at the end. Best dcom ever!

It is like so magical you have got to see it

This movie should be higher up it has a great life lesson

In my opinion, the only good DCOMs are the ones based on Disney shows (Wizards of Waverly Place, Phineas and Ferb, Kim Possible, etc) - Cartoonfan202

15 Another Cinderella Story

I loved this movie but its not a Disney. Channel original movie

I really like this movie, it's so fun and sweet. And I also like Selena Gomez and I LOVE Drew Seeley. TRY to see it

I love this story I wish that they are going to make another Cinderella story

I love this movie, but it's come on Disney Channel a lot, it seems like a DCOM, but sadly it isn't.

16 Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam

This has got to be the best movie ever demi lovato is drop dead gorgeous I love her to bits I have no idea why it is number 51

This is one of those movies that deserves a sequel and sadly they haven't made one yet. I would like to see Demi and Joe's relation develop more, as well as Nick and Dana and Tess and that guy she always argues with. Also, Kevin's character still needs a girlfriend, as well as some of the other characters who still needs true love. I wish the cast would all get together and make another movie.

This film is amazing, the boys and demi are just so talented, they taught everyone to follow and chase their dreams, love you guys x

Music was amazing and I wished there was a Camp Rock 3 because Demi and the guys are just amazing together. However the first one was better than the second. But it was still VERY good

17 The Suite Life Movie

I think this movie is great, In my opinion I Think Suite Life Series deserves 100 of your votes

It was a great movie I wish they would make another one that's how good it is

Love this movie

18 StarStruck

StarStruck is the best movie ever its 10/10 and Sterling Knight is so cute and I love him so much he is perfect it is a spectacular movie and it has the coolest songs ever love you Sterling

I'm very suprised with this... The best movies have got less votes... This movie is great, Sterling Knight is a great and amazing actor and he's so cute and this movie has beautiful songs. StarStruck is one of the best Disney Channel original movies

I really love it with my heart. Wonderful movie I don't know what to say but I wish it to be available in the market till the day I die & if it will, I promise I will see it till the day I die. I am a kid who wrote this

It's so amazing it made cry and happy all mix up emotions. Its one of my best childhood movies and I love it.

This was my favorite movie for the longest time!

20 Kim Possible: So the Drama

This is way better than High School Musical and Camp Rock. This movie is amazing. It's one of those movies that will never get old.

Why is high school musical 1 place - simpsondude

I simply do not know why it's that low. SHould be much higher.

This is an amazing DCOM!

22 Teen Beach Movie

This movie makes me melt my sister used to watch it 402636 times a day I hate this movie and the second one too - Nlough6

Best movie ever made.. it should be in the top ten love Ross as Brady in the movie ;-)

This is by far the WORST Disney Channel Original Movie. It does not deserve to be on this list. Same with each High School Musical. - doctorman

It's not the worst, like it's bad in my personal opinion, but it's not the worst, trust me I've seen worse. - Anonymousxcxc

I just turned 18 and I adore Teen Beach Movie. Ross Lynch is such a babe!

23 The Cheetah Girls

Little chessy but very good

24 Let It Shine

This movie by far is the best Disney movie of all time. Finally there is a movie that reaches out for both Boys and Girls. The music is amazing and most movies that I've seen on Disney are kinda, "eh" saw that happening. But this movie keeps you watching it til the very last part. Great job Disney with this 2012 movie, best Disney movie of all time!

This move was awesome. It truly captures the essence of Black people and I loved it. It was not discriminating and it also portrayed blacks in a good manner. The music is amazing as well. Rap and Pop go well together. Great job on this film, Disney!

This movie is the best Disney Channel movie that has ever came out. It teaches good lessons and is very inspirational. The songs are uplifting and the cast is perfect, they all brought a different part to the movie that made it great. The only thing I don't like is the fact they never gave this movie a sequel, yet High School Musical gets 2 sequels and a spin off.

The movie is awesome it touch every angle of everyone's heart. I truly love the music and story inside. Great job.

25 High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Most amazing movie ever! Most of these Disney channel movies can be childish but High School Musical (especially the third one) is more about growing up and is really suitable for all ages. I love this movie to the moon and back. The singing, dancing, choreography and just the romantic little moments and friendships are just so awesome I've watched this movie so many times and could pleasingly watch it so many times more. Oh and Zac Efron is super hot.

My favorite disney channel movie of all time! Just re-watched it, cried twice and had to keep on rewinding because I just loved one of the ending scenes. It came out in theaters on my birthday and my friend took me to see it, right away I was hooked. It also has amazing music numbers/songs.

This movie was theatrically released and therefore should not count as an official Disney Channel Original Movie.

Other than that, this movie was great!

It really shows creativety.i wish I could watch it again

26 Tru Confessions

I just watched a little bit of it on YouTube, and it almost brought me to tears. It's so sad, and yet so deep in a non-Disney way. This movie and The Color of Friendship are honestly the best Disney has ever made! Shia does such a good job with the role of Eddie. He makes it seem like he's just like that character. The watermelon scene and when Eddie is on the floor crying just broke me down. And I think that the baseball scene was really cute.
You can't explain how great it is, all you can do is say it.
It sometimes comes on at like 2 or 2:30 AM, but I doubt I would ever be allowed to stay up that late. Ever.

My own brother has special needs and at the time that the movie aired on Disney Channel, I was an 11 year old who was going through my own emotional break downs. This movie continues to hit home not only for me, but for my whole family and I really wish Disney would bring back the original movies based on real life situations. This movie is really powerful. It is sad, but the sadness is overwhelmed by the the triumph of a family bond like no other. Definitely a keeper in my collection!

This movie is so sad! They also don't play it enough on disney channel they should play it much more often.

Watched the movie, and it is amazing.

Cute movie! Makes everyone feel Irish

All my sisters including I like a lot

Needs more recognition to be honest. A Great Movie. Better than some of Disneys newer work.

29 Minutemen

I was so torn because there are so many good movies on this list. Halloween town and twitches, camp rock, 16 wishes, I could go on. But I am shoched that this movie is in 71st place. I've seen many disney channel movies, but this is truelly the only one I can watch 50 times without getting bored. The plot is great, the main characters are cute and quirky, and it sends a good message about friendship. Plus it is so entertaining. For once, they didn't ask jason dolley to play the dumb guy, and he did a great job as vergil. Charlie and Zeke are also amazing. Ugh, wonderful movie, I never get bored with it - dragonfly99

This is probably the best Disney movie ever made! I'm shocked that this is in 69th place! This movie has 3 main characters, Charlie, Virgil, and Zeke. Charlie is a genius who skipped a lot of grades. Virgil is a guy who was popular until he stands up to his friends for Charlie. Zeke is a guy who is kind of scary, but is good at building. I won't tell you any more so that I won't ruin the movie!

I loved this movie when I was 10 and I still love it now, I haven't seen it in along time but it was funny and it was suspenseful!

None of these movies should be considered "good" but this is the only one I remember actually working as a movie. - SidDuhSloth

30 Jump In

The movie was fantastic I wonder how much does it take for them to practice I love the movie so much I wish I could to that so I need practice to do double dutch whether I can do it or not. I will start buying to skipping ropes.

The actors in this movie are really clever. It would be really hard to learn some of the jumprope moves that are shown!

the movie was so great it made me want to get out of my seat and jumprope.

This movie made me buy a 30$ jumprope when I was 11 and I tried to do what they did. That proves how great it was!

31 Smart House

I really want a smart house! The concept is incredible, if impossible. Maybe someday they will invent such technology

movie I loved in my childhood. kinda cheesy, but hey, that's disney - missmegz93

omg it jus had a effect on my life so much i can belive this incredible movie i luv it so much i would sleep wit it

kinda techy but interesting - carvandog

32 Motocrossed

Motocrossed is an awesome movie. What makes it my favorite is that I just bought my first dirt bike four months ago, I'm still learning how to ride, and I want to be a great rider in the future.

I love this movie so much. I love seeing a girl standing up to odds that say that she can't be in motocross because of her sex. Andrea was awesome. The Father made me mad for most of the film though. This is my favorite DCOM Movie and I've seen almost all of them.

its just amazing disney thank you for this movie its just awesome disney needs to play the movie all the time

33 The Color Of Friendship

I was like 9 when I watched it. It was like two in the morning. I cried at the begging it just gave an emotional impact on kids and adults this should be number one. It gives a great message to people all around the world. One of the greatest movie of all time.

Just wonderful. Too bad Disney's too vain now to produce anything remotely close to this. Their new movies nowadays are... Stupid, to put things lightly. They should show more of their old ones, like this one.

It has such an amazing message behind it. It teaches you about something important. Disney movies don't do that any more. It is so well acted and is clearly the greatest DCOM ever.

its ah-mazing nothing else left to say.

35 The Thirteenth Year

it's really cool and sad at the ending

Love to be honest. Needs more recognition

36 Cloud 9

I'm voting again, my first vote a couple months ago was Minutemen. But anyway, Cloud 9 is by far the best Disney Channel movie for me right now. I mean, it was truly great! I can't wait to see what Dove Cameron will do next because she was great in this movie. Great snowboarding film, and different from most Disney Channel movies - dragonfly99

I just watched the movie. Kayla and Will are so cute together! Especially when they kissed! And also in real life, Dove and Luke, together. Just think about it...

This shouldn't be so low down, it's amazing, but it's new, so it should work it's way up the list soon! Nothing's Impossible.

I wish I was in that movie to spice it up.It s fantastic and for cool people

37 Phantom of The Mega-Plex

I love this movie! I wish they would play it again cause I can't find it anywhere! Can anyone please help me find this movie!

They need to show this movie, I miss watching it and its not on DVD at all. I hope they play it for Halloween this year.

Disney should definitely play this more often, it's so great!

38 The Cheetah Girls - One World

Best movie ever

Loved watching THE CHEETAH GIRLS: ONE WORLD on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. - kristyrosepetal4


I love the're music

39 Frenemies

It has BELLA THORNE in it! Yea! Its a show about bffs who turn into their worst nightmare

Frenemies is an amazing movie! I love it!

Awesome! My favorite Disney Channel movie!

40 Now You See It!

Is this really a competition people?! High School Musical is number one? Now you see it is by far better. Plus there's Life is Rough, and The Color of Friendship which are both far better.

This movie is the best movie I have ever seen on disney! But they don't ever show it anymore so now I am sad. Why do they play the worst disney movies, but they don't play the best!

I guess it's okay... The ending's SUPER MESSED up, though

41 Quints

this is a very family oriented movie that shows a teenage girl's struggle to catch anyones attention caused by the births of her five brothers and sisters

I love this movie because i love stuff about multiples and wish this movie would come out on DVD

I love this movie. I think it's so cute! They should show it on Disney Channel more often

42 Twitches Too

Love this movie and I really want to see it again. I always wanted to be a princess and fight evil family member

Twitches too is 1 of the best movie I've ever seen!



43 Descendants

I grew up with stuff like Hannah Montana, That's So Raven, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and other shows like that, but Descendants is by far the most interesting thing to come out of Disney Channel since maybe Kim Possible (nothing beats Kim Possible, but still)

This is the best Disney channel movie ever. It deserves to be number one because it is the only thing Disney Channel has produced in the last decade that has a single original idea to it

This is easily the best one on this list! 96? Wow. I guess it's okay that Lemonade Mouth is number 1, but Descendants should be WAY higher than this! - Captain_Slendy

Love the movie it taught you is doesn't matter where you come from :) and you can be who you want to be

46 Go Figure

i love this movie. I can't believe that stupid High School Musical rated above this. Trust me, children. If you want to know what high school is really like then watch Degrassi.

This film is actually amazing! The acting is outstanding, and the story line is gripping! To this today it is still my 12year old daughters favourite film!

Go Figuers is so awsome! im watching it right now! How dare you not like it!

Zenon sucks.

47 Brink!

Brink! Is a really good movie! It should be in top 10! I really liked it. And it has a great message.

Brink should be in the top 5 it is one of the best movies disney has made

How is Camp Rock ahead of Brink!? This was a really good movie.

48 Gotta Kick it Up

This movie is my top favorite next to HSM2 it's an awesome movie I hope they never take it off of disney channel.

I luv this movie and the reason why is i do dancing!!!
