Best Disney Channel Original Movies

A list of the best movies created by Disney Channel
The Top Ten
1 High School Musical High School Musical Product Image

I have watched this 3 times. The first with my sister when I was around 7 years old back when it was on netflix. I then rewatched it last year and althought it was extremely cringe worthy I still enjoyed it. I watched it again recently. The second one is better though!

I live and breathe this movie. I know every word to every song. I wish I had the friendship and relationship that gaby and Troy had. It's really perfect. This movie is the BEST ONE EVER in my book. I cry my eyes out every time I watch the first one in the first song because it's like they have no idea how amazing it this really turns out to be. It's tears of happiness and how Proud I am. Cry when they graduate and words cannot express how at home I feel when I watch it. My final words of my high school graduation speech are, "I want the rest of my life to feel just like my high school musical! "

Love this movie. Just wanna make a point about Sharpay in general. Of coruse I love her queen. But I hate when people say she was the real victim. Think about hsm 2( I know different movie) . She pulls strings in hsm 2 and gets troy hired to work at lava springs and talk to basketball people all so he can get away from his friends and do a duet and date sharpay. She is self-centered and doesn't care about anybody else. So maybe that's why troy wants to date gabriella a sweet kind girl compared to Sharpay(also tried to not allow the workers to perfom at the talent show just so she can perform with only troy."What's the prize? Troy? The Stardazzle award? You have to go through all this just to get either one? No, thanks Sharpay. You're very good at a game that I don't want to play. So, I'm done here. But you better step away from the mirror long enough to check the damage that will always be right behind you."

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!

2 Lemonade Mouth Lemonade Mouth Product Image

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.

This is one of my FAVE DCOM's ever! I've watched it so many times I know all the songs of by heart. It has a wonderful message and I loved Bridgit Mendler, Blake Michael and Naomi Scott in this. I feel like not many people have heard of this amazing film. It's so underrated and deserves to be heard. GO LEMONADE MOUTH!

Great movie that incorporated music into a story that was interesting, serious, and innocent all at the same time. Had a much better story to tell than both Camp Rock and High School Musical with songs better than both of the mentioned movies. Should definitely be first place.

3 Halloweentown Halloweentown Product Image

YAs you have a real childhood if you watched these

I love this and Halloweenton High

I loved this movie with all my heart. ❤️


4 Camp Rock Camp Rock Product Image

Camp rock rocks,and especially the sequel.The first one had too obvious of a plot,But the 2nd movie was so incredible with a great plot of the two camp jarring at each other.
The music was incredible in both of them,and the job Demi Lovato did in the singing and dancing was incredible as she was so young at the time.
Brand new day is a song that makes you just want to join along,along with so many great hits that are so upbeat and direct.
Having future stars in Demi Lovato and the Jonas brothers really made Camp Rock phenomenal,and amovie you want to see again and again.
I find the music in Camp Rock was so much better than High School Musical,and Camp Rock should be way ahead of High School Musical in the ratings.

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.

Love Camp Rock, especially Demi Lovato! It has a heart felt message and I just love it! I wish there were more movies with the Jonas Brothers and Demi because when they work together, its magic

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!

5 Phineas & Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension Phineas & Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension Product Image

I love this movie, this might be the best movie of all time. Here is the way you like this movie. The characters are great, the animation are great, the adventure are great, the songs are great. I want this movie all time. This might be the best disney channel movie of all time.

"Wow, if I had a nickel for every time I was doomed by a puppet, I'd have two nickles."-Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz

So good! Phineas and ferb is a good show and the movie was also really good

This movie of Phineas and ferb is awesome, I recommend giving it a look

6 Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior Product Image

Wendu Wu is really entertaining. It gives you a message that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. It is in a Chinese accent that most of the characters speak so you cannot understand but is in English so you should be able to. I recommend this movie to anyone even old people.

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.

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!

Brenda Song is much better as a butt-kicking heroine than she is as spoilt brat London Tipton. She seemed much more in her element.

7 16 Wishes 16 Wishes Product Image

16 Wishes should be the first. It really shows an amazing lesson which I will let you find out on you own. Watch this show it is the best movie ever. One the many lessons is that you want to live in the moment and be thankful that you have people with you now because sometime they might not be there. So, I highly suggest to watch this. It is great for any age!

It is the awsomest movie I have ever seen. The moral of this story is presented in such a way that if a normal person says it we will think he's crazy but is we have a look at this movie we will be like :o I should be happy with what I have. If this is the way to teach kids their lessons then it's the best way.

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.

I LOVED this movie! It was so interesting and intriguing. I loved it! One of my favourites! Especially in the end! I love the plot so much and her realising she needs her parents in the end! It's so exciting! A must see!

8 Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie Product Image

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!

This is the best T.V. series to movie adaption Disney has ever made

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

This movie is the second most watched after HSM2! It deserves 2 be higher

9 High School Musical 2 High School Musical 2 Product Image

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 like this movie because it change my future and I want you to play this movie on Live T.V.

High school musical 2 rocks love you vanessa hudgens

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

10 Princess Protection Program Princess Protection Program Product Image

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

Loved this! Selena and Demi should have done more movies together because they r amazing together! One of the best it deserves to be higher than 8. Selena is my role model. LOVE IT! This movie should come more often!

Sort of like "See Spot Run" or "Our Lips are Sealed" but with a princess who is under some witness protection program (hence the title "Princess Protection Program").

I just love the plot line. Country girl meets teen princess. Different, huh? Plus Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez. Need I say any more than that?

The Contenders
11 Good Luck, Charlie It's Christmas Good Luck, Charlie It's Christmas Product Image

When I first saw it I was like... How will it be, the show was good but the movies off the shows usually aren't... But it was surprisingly good. I watch it at Christmas, and not at Christmas.
Sure Amy was kind of... Weird... But still. I just don't like how in the movie she was "pregnant" but nothing of that in the show
I'd give it 8/10

First time I watched this I cried. It's so sad but really tells the true meaning of Christmas is being with family. The ending was amazing your in a simple cute little restaurant with Christmas tree pancakes and an Annoumcement of a new baby it doesn't get better than this

This had be the best movie ever you can't stand the awesome adventure a mother and her daughter has.It's an awesome movie of forgiveness and a star that goes on top of a Christmas tree

This movie is great for Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love to watch great family movies like this one.

12 Kim Possible: So the Drama Kim Possible: So the Drama Product Image

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.

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

Why is high school musical 1 place

I miss kim possible :'(

13 The Suite Life Movie The Suite Life Movie Product Image

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

There 's cole and Dylan sprouse in here!

14 Geek Charming Geek Charming Product Image

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

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

Amazing and I loved the ending! Sarah Hyland was amazing and it just shows that no matter how different you are, you can still be friends and have social interaction with them!

Out of this list this is my second favorite right behind another cinderella story. This movie is so great

15 Descendants Descendants Product Image

Is everyone just going to ignore the fact that Ben had a girlfriend in the first , so Mal litterally FORCED BEN TO CHEAT ON AUDREY?!?

What?! Why is this 69 on the list? It has several really good meanings. 1) Anyone can change.
2) True beauty comes from within 3) Love is stronger than evil 4) Working as a team is better than going solo 5) Face your fears I could go on and on... Not to mention the acting! Each actor played there role perfectly. come on people get this movie to #1.

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

It was good, but it literally came on everyday for an entire month, it was okay and they said it was relatable but it wasnt, I mean, when was the last time you did any of what they did?

16 Let It Shine Let It Shine Product Image

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.

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!

I love this movie. He can really rap. This movie is so good, even my step-dad watched it, and he hates Disney Channel. One of Disney's best movies so far. I can't believe it is this low on the list.

17 Minutemen Minutemen Product Image

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

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.

18 Radio Rebel Radio Rebel Product Image

I like the main character. Although she spews that "be yourself" nonsense I despise, she's still quirky, strong-willed, good natured, and is actually a pretty relatable character. Even the principal's motives are quite solid. (If a radio program was encouraging everyone to turn lunch into a dance party, I'd be pretty ticked off as well) There are still things I dislike, such as everyone blindly following Rebel's advice, (that popular girl was the only one in THE WHOLE SCHOOL who disliked her?! ) those "ha ha, boys are quirky! Laugh at them! " moments, and the best friend's a bit annoying.

But this is definitely a film I can watch again. Several times.

This has to be one of my favorite Disney movies; and their are a LOT of them. The actor Debbie Ryan really shined when portraying her character, Tara. A shy girl, with her own radio station? What could go wrong? What could go right...!? :) Don't want to spoil it! This movie really proves the point of whoever you are, you have a voice, and that there shouldn't be and stereotypes, (in high school). We should all be considered the same, in our own special, unique way. Go watch it right now on Netflix, on demand, or Disney channel! 10/10 recommend! Enjoy!

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.

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

19 Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam Product Image

Okay admittedly Camp Rock 2 wasn't as good as the first one(Of course not lol) but it had awesome songs I wish there was a third one.

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.

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

I love the movie! I record it every time it comes on and it has my favorite singers in it Demi lovato Joe Jonas/the Jonas brothers

20 Cadet Kelly Cadet Kelly Product Image

No idea how High school musical got higher than this masterpiece.

This was my favorite movie for the longest time!

its got hilary duff in it I think I don't need to say no more shes fab!

21 Twitches Twitches Product Image

Best Disney movie ever! Can't believe its number 44! Its full of surprises you would'nt believe your eyes! Come on people vote it! Show your taste!

I love magic and witches and stuff, so this movie would be my favourite.

Excellent movie with lots of surprises!

Twitches is the best movie ever and I love this sooo much

22 Descendants 2 Descendants 2 Product Image

The closest Descendants has ever gotten to a classic. This movie is NO WHERE CLOSE to Ariel, but it really is good! I thought it was like every other modern Disney movie, but I was wrong, and I'm glad I am!

I love this movie I have honestly watched 15 times and I'm never board of all the actors do an amazing job and I hope there is a descendants 3 in the future.

Between this, the first Descendants movie, and Zombies. This one was amazing.

All 3 Descendants as well as Zombies Should be in the Top 10.

23 The Luck of the Irish The Luck of the Irish Product Image

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

Cute movie! Makes everyone feel Irish

All my sisters including I like a lot

This movie kicks ass

24 Cloud 9 Cloud 9 Product Image

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

Cloud 9 hands down is the best disney movie ever! Its not only cute, but its also isparationals, it taught me, not to give up on myself and that nothing is impossible, it really is a great movie, and I have watched 14X in a row! I highly reccomend this amazing movie!

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.

25 Tru Confessions Tru Confessions Product Image

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!

Great, inspiring, and it teaches us all a little something about life and love and family. It's definitely the best Disney movie. They need to make more like this to help guide this young generation

I loved the old movies when they would TEACH you something and have an all round great cast. I don't know why HSM is even on the top 10 this should be number 1, it teaches you about disabillities, being different and its touched me
