As a writer, I have no problem sharing my favorite things or my honest opinions on a subject. However, this list is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. See, I grew up watching Disney Channel (and I even wrote a piece on how it impacted my life). While shows were everything to me, the Disney Channel Original Movies (or DCOMS) were the core of the network. The thought of ranking them left me super excited at first, and then super stressed out. How can one rank between High School Musical, Halloweentown, Cadet Kelly and Cheetah Girls?
Well, I did it and I welcome all your thoughts once you’re done reading it. I took all the iconic catchphrases, outrageous fashion choices and heavy hitters into consideration (because I’m still singing “Strut” in the mirror to this day). You can’t also forget the household names that came out of these movies like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Raven Symoné. From movie musicals like Camp Rock to classic dramas like The Color of Friendship, ahead are the 50 best Disney Channel Original Movies, ranked by a hardcore DCOM stan.
