The Best Disney Channel Original Movies of All Time

A list of the best Disney Channel Original Movies, voted on and ranked by fans. Along with its hit live-action shows and hilarious animated series, Disney Channel offers entertaining made-for-television films geared towards kids, tweens and young adults. The list of televised Disney Channel films below includes hit movies that launched the careers of several Hollywood stars including Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and teen heartthrob Zac Efron.

The top-rated cable network premiered its first original TV movie Tiger Town in 1983 under the Disney Channel Premiere Films umbrella. In 1997, Disney re-branded its made-for-TV films into Disney Channel Original Movies, which were also called DCOMs for short. Since then, a number of DCOMs have become franchise hits such as the cultural phenomenon High School Musical and the entertaining Cheetah Girls movies. The High School Musical sequel even set a basic cable record with 17.2 million viewers when it premiered in 2007. Stars of several Disney Channel series have also acted in a hit DCOM including Selena Gomez, the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato.
