I can remember my mom saying that over 10 years ago! in the late 90's/early 2000's late at night they had "Vault Disney" and would play the classic stuff. We thought they should make a whole Vault Disney channel without all the 'tween' nonsense that was just starting to take over back then. Now that it all seems to be crap like that, a classic Disney channel would be even more refreshing.

Teens have control of their parent checkbooks , so we get some Disney exec who thinks these shows are a guaranteed buck.

I hate the tern shows they have on now. I wont let my kids watch that trash. It soap operas for tweens and they have content that is really not very disney.

Just one mans opinion of course...

Yes! It's awful. Although I am impressed with Gravity Falls. It was painful watching the Disney Channel in the hotel, Shake It Up was the only semi-decent show, everything else was truly terrible. They need to deal with it, but I don't think that'll happen anytime soon!

I'm 35 and I still enjoy watching the Disney Channel...with and or without my kids. Now I don't think the quality of the programming changed, I think that, we as adults, have just grown. And we find ourselves trying to compare the newer shows with the ones we now consider classics.

Gravity Falls is fantastic, but everything else is bad. I use to like Phineas and Ferb but it's worn out now.

Agree with this! The Disney Channel in the late 90's early 2000's was the best! I ALWAYS had The Disney Channel on all throughout high school! I also really liked the Disney Channel original movies that were made during this time period!

1990's Disney Channel was amazing. I LOVED Vault Disney. As a child I totally worshiped Hayley Mills and they played her movies on there all the time. I also liked how the old Disney Channel would always have little features about behind the scenes at DL or WDW. I also used to love the shows Adventures in Wonderland and Under the Umbrella Tree.

Good Luck Charlie

I have been watching the Disney Channel forever. I agree that the characters have become far too formulaic and loud over the years. Bratty is not funny, though the writers seem to think it is. We all know what I mean so lets find the few good shows:

Good Luck Charlie is the best show currently on Disney. This one does at least try to have their characters not be so cookie-cutter and have a bit of honesty.

Wizards of Waverly place was great. It was good to see it go out on its own terms, the family wizard decided and all that. they all grew up and it was time to end wrap it up. Nice show Disney.

Gravity Falls may be OK, I'm undecided as yet.

The others are mediocre or worse. I watch some of them still, but that is the die hard Disney in me who enjoys sharing Disney with my girls.

All the "shows" are awful, I think they are "toying" with the idea about some old school/classic cartoons but if they can have a classic cartoon channel on the ships why can't they as an option for Disney Channel/s

It seems like today's programming is distancing itself from the actual parks. They used to show what was new in the parks during commercial breaks and even had short Mickey cartoon clips. They had shows based on Disney movies like Timon and Pumba, Ariel, House of Mouse, Lilo and Stitch, Rescue Rangers, etc.

Now, there really isn't much of a semblance of classic Disney in any Disney channel shows.

Not a fan of the recent shows on Disney Channel. The quality has gone out the window. And why doeS EVERY Disney Channel star need to sing? Stick to the acting and maybe the shows would be better!

I think its the culture that has changed disney is trying to create stars like the did with raven, hannah etc. So they can profit from cds, concerts & concert movies. I mean look what happened to toon disney which i used to love to watch old cartoons on

I'm 17 now but I grew up watching Disney Channel, in two different eras. I remember being obsessed with Lizzie McGuire (who can't forget the Lizzie McGuire Movie? That convinced me to go to Rome haha!), Even Stevens, Sister, Sister, and That's So Raven. There were also SO many good DCOM movies back then, like Luck of the Irish, Hocus Pocus, Smart House, ect.

Then when I was in my pre-teen age, Hannah Montana premiered and I also became a huge fan. The period of shows like HM, Wizards, Suite Life of Zach & Cody and even Sonny With A Chance was the last time Disney Channel was good, in my opinion. But those shows are now long gone. I can't even STAND to hear Austin & Ally in the background when my brother watches. Shake It Up has weak writing and acting, Ant Farm/Jessie is boring, Austin & Ally is just cringe-worthy. Good-Luck Charlie is the last show on DC right now that still is a bit watchable to me, but I don't see that show lasting as long as Wizards or Hannah did. Charlie is eventually going to grow up anyway.
