The Disney channel was jam packed with original movies that we happily lapped up from the overused couches of our childhoods, but many of them have faded in our memories now we've emerged into the cold wastelands of adulthood.

Although they might be buried deep in our memories alongside those long-discarded Pogs and Polly Pockets, but maybe this list will kick start those nostalgic memories and send you catapulting back to simpler days. The question is, which one was your all time favorite?
