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

I love this film. it should not be 46th. its funny, the songs are amazing and the girls look, sound and dance great. whats not to love?

This should be in the top 10, why is is 30? Girls used to fight over which Cheetah girl they were.

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.

27 The Luck of the Irish

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.

28 Read It And Weep

I have finally found a movie that beats HSM! - panikkrazy

I wouldn't say these are necessarily "the best, " but they are decent. - dureckl

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

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!

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

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
