Most Powerful Disney Channel Stars 2013If you must know, these teenagers wield an enormous amount of influence. Here are the top 10 most powerful and influential celebrities that are under the Disney Channel umbrella.
The Top Ten
While Shake it Up has currently gone defunct, Zendaya still packs a punch of fame with her single "Replay" and her runner-up experience on Dancing with the Stars. She currently has signed another contract with Disney for another show in order to stay.
Her upcoming show, "Super Awesome Katy" is going to be an amazing show. I love everything about Zendaya, every detail about her is so eccentric.
She is destined for greatness. She got more fans than ever on "Dancing with the Stars," and she wasn't even a star yet.
Yep, despite Wizards of Waverly Place being cancelled last year, Selena Gomez has remained on top thanks to reruns and a comeback television special. She has come out on top as a sharp contrast with her fellow star Miley Cyrus as cultivating an adult image without causing shocking controversy.
Her work with all these different charities is amazing. I had the pleasure of meeting her in NYC for TOT4UNICEF and she is absolutely a great role model for the disney audience (compared to most girls on there.) I did not know her before but my cousin was out when she saw her. I found out that I'm only 2yrs older than her and she has achieved so much! Meeting Ariana Grande was the highlight of my life but Laura Marano has definitely taken the cake for that!
Ross Lynch's co-star on Austin and Ally, Marano is a nerd in real life due to her time on Are You Smarter than a 5th grader? But she is an experienced actress and singer, and she has potential to move up the list as Disney's premier princess, much like Brenda Song and Raven Symone. - bzjeung
Her charity work and positive attitude is gonna get her far. Definitely one to look out for!
She is such a sweet girl! She's gorgeous, can sing, a really good actress (when she's not doing a disney role) and ugh so many other things. She's done so much good, like being an ambassador for UNICEF. She is really talented.
Ross Lynch can both sing and act, as he has proved in Disney's most popular show of 2013, Austin and Ally. While it can't compare to the older shows of Disney, Austin and Ally has proven wildly popular. He also starred in Teen Beach Movie, one of Disney's most successful Disney Original Movies. - bzjeung
The last Disney Channel star of the golden age, Debby Ryan is a veteran of Disney Channel and has propelled her show Jessie to vie for the top spot of Disney Channel shows. She is capable of singing just fine and her acting has gotten much better. - bzjeung
Another Disney Channel veteran, Mendler first came onto the scene as a vampire on Wizards of Waverly Place. Now, her hit show Good Luck Charlie has hit 4 seasons. Mendler is also a capable singer, having released the hit single "Hurricane". - bzjeung
Thorne's popularity is only slightly less than her Shake it Up co-star's Zendaya, but Thorne is still going strong as she is stunningly beautiful. However, her characters are slightly annoying. She is leaving Disney after Shake it Up, but who knows if Disney will let her go? - bzjeung
The star of A.N.T. farm, the show has not done especially well, but McClain has procured a popular image due to her multiple talents in the music industry. Despite being only 15 years old, McClain has proven to be a better singer than some of her older peers. - bzjeung
I want to stab him.
Another star of A.N.T. farm and a star of the Disney series Mighty Med, Jake Short is one of the first Disney Channel Stars to star in two different shows at the same time. Double the fame! - bzjeung
Underrated but AWESOME!
Duty achieved fame in Shake it Up as one of the two flamboyant Hessenheffer twins and along with Caroline Sunshine, were the most popular characters of the show. Duty recently starred in the anti-bullying film Contest, while Sunshine will take the theater stage. - bzjeung
Duty was just in the anti-bullying movie Contest. He is a good role model to young people - bzjeung
She is the most successful actress than anyother disney stars.Her HANNAH Montana show is very popular all over the world.
And its true
