Top 10 Best Disney Channel Original MoviesA list of the best movies created by Disney Channel
I live and breathe this movie. I know every word to every song. I wish I had the friendship and relationship that Gabby 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 this really turns out to be. It's tears of happiness and how proud I am. I 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 were, "I want the rest of my life to feel just like my High School Musical!"
This movie is too good to be true! First of all, it has a great message about breaking free from the crowd and being yourself. 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 storyline is great!
Right. I will admit, High School Musical is an iconic movie and was one of the first, or maybe the first Disney Channel Movie to become super popular and stuff. I mean, they still play it on the channel nowadays and even small kids know about it. But most iconic and most popular doesn't mean best. That's what this list is, the BEST Disney Channel movies. And that is what Lemonade Mouth is.
The acting is superb, much better than most acting in HSM. I can tell the actors really got into the characters they were playing, and they made me really like the characters. That was quite hard to do with High School Musical, as most of it was badly acted and I wasn't a big fan of any characters except Ryan and Kelsi.
Now, High School Musical had more songs. However, I think the Lemonade Mouth songs were better and had more meaning. With an exception of Breaking Free, the HSM soundtrack isn't all that great, especially compared to the songs in Lemonade Mouth. This movie is probably one of the last good things to come out of Disney Channel. This movie is definitely worth the watch.
They are great. It's one of those Halloween movies you'll finish watching without having nightmares or thinking it was stupid. Good movie!
I'm voting for the first one since all the sequels were nothing like the original (in quality, tone, and appearance).
I love this movie a lot since I was a child. It is a little bit scary but at the same time so adventurous. I love all its characters.
I love this movie. It might be the best movie of all time. Here's why you'll like this movie: The characters are great, the animation is great, the adventure is great, the songs are great. I watch this movie all the time. This might be the best Disney Channel movie of all time.

So good! Phineas and Ferb is a good show, and the movie was also really good.
Camp Rock rocks, especially the sequel. The first one had too obvious of a plot, but the second movie was incredible with a great storyline of the two camps competing against each other.
The music was fantastic in both films, and Demi Lovato did an incredible job with her singing and dancing, especially considering how young she was at the time.
Brand New Day is a song that makes you just want to join along, along with many other great hits that are upbeat and catchy.
Having future stars like Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers truly made Camp Rock phenomenal, a movie you want to see again and again.
I find the music in Camp Rock much better than High School Musical, and Camp Rock should be rated way ahead of High School Musical.
The film is really awesome. However, I have found a mistake. When Mitchie's mother finds a leaflet, if you look at the bottom of the page when it closes, you can see it closes again when they zoom out. It's been cut wrong.
Wendy Wu is really entertaining. It gives you a message that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Most of the characters speak in a Chinese accent, so you might not understand everything, but it is in English, so you should be able to. I recommend this movie to anyone, even older people.
Such a good movie, but I just wish I could find it somewhere. It is a really great movie, and I suggest watching it for anyone who hasn't. I grew up on this movie as a kid, and I just know you will all love it.
This movie is great, as I remember from my childhood. However, the scene where that stone statue is a bit creepy. Why do souls possess different people? But Food Boy is great, in my opinion.
Let's be serious. This is the first 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 TV series to movie adaptation Disney has ever made.
Love you, Selena Gomez.
I watched this movie just now, expecting it to be good but nothing more. I absolutely loved it. It teaches the importance of friendship and not to judge people when you know nothing about them. I wouldn't say it's the greatest Disney Channel movie, but if High School Musical (one of the cringiest and definitely not the best DCOM) is in the top spot, then Princess Protection Program deserves to be way higher than 10. I'm not saying that I hate HSM. It just isn't really the "best," as everyone calls it.
LOVE this movie SO much! Possibly the best Disney Channel original movie alongside 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.
This was my favorite growing up. As a 10 or 11-year-old, I had nothing to do, this happened to be on, and I loved it! I watched it every time it was on TV, and honestly, now that I'm remembering this movie, I think I should rewatch it soon.
16 Wishes should be first. It really shows an amazing lesson, which I will let you find out on your own. Watch this show. It is the best movie ever. One of the many lessons is that you want to live in the moment and be thankful that you have people with you now because sometimes they might not be there. So, I highly suggest watching this. It is great for any age!
It is the most awesome 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 if we look at this movie, we will be amazed: 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 about appreciating what you have and the people around you, because one day they might not be there.
This movie should be way higher on this list. It 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 changed my future, and I want you to play this movie on Live TV.
I love it. It is sad when Gabriella sings that song to Troy and then leaves because of how the country club had changed him.
When I first saw it, I was wondering how it would be. The show was good, but movies based on shows usually aren't. However, it was surprisingly good. I watch it at Christmas, and even when it's not Christmas.
Sure, Amy was kind of weird, but still. I just don't like how in the movie she was "pregnant" but there was nothing about that in the show. I'd give it 8/10.
The first time I watched this, I cried. It's so sad but really tells the true meaning of Christmas: being with family. The ending was amazing. You're in a simple, cute little restaurant with Christmas tree pancakes and an announcement of a new baby. It doesn't get better than this.
This movie is great for Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love to watch great family movies like this one.
Geek Charming is kind of a similar storyline to Cinderella, but it's backwards. You have this rich, popular girl and this geeky, nerdy boy. They meet up at school when this nerdy boy has to do a project for class. They bond over time while doing the project and come to realize they like each other. It ends perfectly, just as it should, 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 the top 5, for sure top 10. This was a great movie.
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 interactions with them!
Geek Charming is a nice story. I don't know why it's number ten. It's about a girl who is a selfish person but has a sweet side to herself. So now that I have told you about this fabulous movie, put it up to 10 RIGHT NOW! Bye.
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.
The movie is a classic and awesome, especially the ending with Kim and Ron.
I simply do not know why it's ranked that low. Should be much higher.
There's Cole and Dylan Sprouse in here!
I think this movie is great. In my opinion, the Suite Life series deserves 100 of your votes.
This movie is the best Disney Channel movie that has ever come 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 to both boys and girls. The music is amazing, and most movies that I've seen on Disney are kind of, "eh, saw that happening." But this movie keeps you watching it till the very last part. Great job, Disney, with this 2012 movie. Best Disney movie of all time!
This movie was awesome. It truly captures the essence of Black culture, and I loved it. It was not discriminating, and it also portrayed Black people in a good manner. The music is amazing as well. Rap and Pop go well together. Great job on this film, Disney!
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 relationship 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 need true love. I wish the cast would all get together and make another movie.
The 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 and Joe Jonas/The Jonas Brothers.
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?! There are also 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 there are a lot of them. The actor, Debby 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 that whoever you are, you have a voice, and that there shouldn't be any stereotypes, especially 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! I highly recommend it – a 10/10! Enjoy!
No idea how High School Musical got ranked higher than this masterpiece.
This was my favorite movie for the longest time!
I was so torn because there are so many good movies on this list. Halloweentown and Twitches, Camp Rock, 16 Wishes - I could go on. But I am shocked that this movie is in 71st place. I've seen many Disney Channel movies, but this is truly 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 stood 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!
Best Disney movie ever! Can't believe it's number 44! It's full of surprises you wouldn't believe your eyes! Come on, people, vote for it! Show your taste!
I love magic and witches and stuff, so this movie would be my favorite.
Excellent movie with lots of surprises!
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 their 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.
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!
Needs more recognition, to be honest. A great movie. Better than some of Disney's newer work.
Cute movie! Makes everyone feel Irish.
This movie kicks ass.
This is one of the best movies I have ever watched, even if it is not a DCOM. The main actor and actress were so good together. I could watch this movie over and over and not get tired of it.
I have a very strong connection to this movie. Growing up, it really showed me how cruel people can be. It brings you to the real world.
I love this movie, but it's come on Disney Channel a lot. It seems like a DCOM, but sadly it isn't.
I love the songs, especially "Fearless." It's just so catchy!
I love it! It sends a really great message that you'll have to watch the movie to see.
Pretty good movie, decent songs...
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 going through my own emotional breakdowns. This movie continues to hit home not only for me but for my whole family. 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 triumph of a family bond like no other. Definitely a keeper in my collection!
