A Disney Channel Original Movie Marathon Is Coming & Your Childhood Self Just Passed Out
Um. ALERT ALERT ALERT. Stop whatever you're doing and get in here. It's just been announced that the Disney Channel will be airing a mega-marathon of DCOMs all through Memorial Day weekend. Yup, that's right. A "mega-marathon" of nearly every Disney Channel Original Movie that has ever ever aired. Obviously, this is a lot to process, so we'll give you a second. OK, are you done? Memorial Day is one of those holidays for which I sometimes have trouble making plans, because what are you really supposed to do unless you have a grill or a boat or live in a climate warm enough to debut your all-white-everythang outfit? But this year, it's been taken out of my hands, because we all have plans, and they're all the same plans, and those plans are staying home and catching up on our childhood with this marathon.
As a way of celebrating their 100th Original Movie, Adventures in Babysitting, which premieres this summer, Disney Channel has decided to reward us by airing as many DCOMs as they possibly can, from Friday, May 27 at 10:00 a.m. EST with Kim Possible to 3:35 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31, when Johnny Tsunami will bring us home. Stuffed in between will be 49 of your other favorites, for a grand total of 51 DCOMs in a single weekend. They're calling the event the 100th DCOM Celebration, and not only are they giving us something to celebrate, but they're also really earning that "mega-marathon" title as well. I'm impressed.
But the only reason they're stopping there is because they literally can't fit all 99 into the hours available, so the remaining movies will be airing through the first week of June, in case you have any swoons leftover that you need to get out of your system. Check out the full schedule below, and I'll see you Memorial Day weekend! Or maybe I won't see you, since we'll both be inside living our dreams.
