If you are a ‘90s or early 2000s kid, then you are probably a fan of the Disney Channel. This network used to rule every household across America. Every original show, movie, or program on the Disney Channel would constantly be on everyone’s radar. These shows are still considered to be iconic and everyone loves to re-watch them, whenever they get a chance. And let’s be honest here, we all at least once pretended to draw the logo with any stick we could get our hands on.
When it comes to Disney Channel’s original shows, the best part was that they were kid-appropriate, funny, and sort of relatable. And if you have been missing all those shows, then don’t worry because you can still watch the shows we are going to talk about in this article on Disney+. Moreover, you can also catch the new additions to the network by getting a subscription to a cable TV package such as the one offered by Xfinity that includes Disney Channel in its lineup. If interested, then don’t wait any longer and dial numero de Xfinity (for Spanish customers) and talk to the customer support agent regarding the installation process.
Having said that, let’s move towards our top picks of Disney Channel original shows that everyone still loves to watch to this date.
- Hannah Montana (2006 – 2011)
Hannah Montana was a big part of our childhood. It gave us so many beautiful memories to look back at. The show is still iconic and considering how simple the times were back then, it still managed to gain massive popularity.
The show stars Miley Cyrus as the titular character with the original identity of Miley Stewart. She appears to be a normal pre-teen girl until it is revealed that she is actually living a double life – a student by day and an international superstar by night.
Hannah Montana not only gained popularity as a show but also became a reason for the massive popularity of the Disney Channel as a network.
- Wizards of Waverly Place (2007 – 2012)
Hands down, Wizards of Waverly Place is one of the best shows on the Disney Channel. It was way ahead of its time because of the character development and dialogue delivery. The show gave us a superstar; Selena Gomez and to this date, it continues to be a fan favorite even after all these years.
Wizards of Waverly Place follows the Russo family kids; Justin, Alex, and Max, who are in training to become the family wizard. This means, only one of them will get to keep their powers by the end of it. Along the way, you get to witness some of the most hilarious misadventures they run into (specifically Alex).
What’s more, the character of Alex Russo (Selena Gomez) is definitely the most relatable TV character in the history of Disney Channel.
- The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (2005 – 2008)
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody became a household name as soon as it started airing on Disney Channel. It gave us memorable characters, funny jokes to laugh at, hilarious scenes, a weird shenanigan, and a whole lot of emotions sprinkled on top of it all. Plus, how can we not talk about the cast? The Sprouse twins made it even more entertaining to watch.
Our titular characters Zack and Cody are identical twins, who often find themselves in messy and equally funny situations, while their mother is busy working at a hotel called Tipton. The show includes a perfect blend of all types of characters Disney is famous for creating and it does that quite brilliantly, we must add.
- Lizzie McGuire (2001 – 2004)
We still remember the times when Hilary Duff was the ultimate queen of the Disney Channel. Everyone used to obsessively watch her shows and movies but it all started out with Lizzie McGuire. People began to identify her as this character. Children wanted to be just like her and why wouldn’t they? The show phenomenally showed how confusing it is to grow up and it captured the essence of it in this show.
Our titular character is a middle school girl who is navigating through life and middle school issues, while simultaneously enjoying her childhood. Lizzie has some of the best friends you could ask for and a loving family, except for her younger brother, who keeps annoying her from time to time.
Lizzie McGuire is the kind of show you watch to unwind. Its lighthearted content and wholesome scenes make you want to come back to it again and again.
There you have it, folks! The abovementioned Disney Channel shows are some of the best and most iconic shows of all time. These series are perfect for all those of you who crave a good amount of nostalgia. Disney Channel is like a time machine, it takes you back to the time when we all were growing up along with some of the actors who are now known as superstars to the world.
So, sit back and relax and stream these shows this weekend to go back to the good old days.
Good time on most of them. I never saw Lizzie McGuire, though
