Any millennial will reach a stage in their lives where they know how quickly time has passed and how old they really are. It was when I remembered how old the beginnings of my beloved Disney Channel Original Movies were today that it hit me. Growing up, Disney Channel movies were the highlight of many Friday nights. Remember Zenon, the twenty-first-century girl? She is currently 33 years old. If you have any idea what that means? It’s been two decades since Zenon made our hearts go boom boom for the first time. The top Disney Channel Original Movies are listed below.
This is pretty much the only film in which the word “Marnie” is cool. Halloweentown is a wacky cool spot where witches, goblins, and vampires exist in peace – before people start to vanish. It brings on the case with the 13-year-old witch in training and her two younger brothers!
A chill surfer kid with a kalabunga attitude is compelled to travel to Vermont with his family and finds himself in a Capulet and Montague-style standoff between skiers and snowboarders, with a stunning Kristen Storm in the centre as Emily.
Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century

Cheetah Girls 2
Raven realized she could sing better than Proto Zoa, so she quit the International Space Station to form an all-girl band in which she starred, ahem, co-starred with three other female leads. When they don’t feel equally respected, tensions emerge. Don’t worry, they make it to two more movies!
The Thirteenth Year
For your 13th birthday, what did you get? Oh, you didn’t turn into a merman, did you? I don’t know about you, but things are looking a bit fishy for Cody Griffin. When things go wrong, the professional swimmer goes in search of answers.
