"Let's watch a Disney Channel movie!" If you were a cable viewer during your childhood, you know that those words aren't merely a suggestion, but also the the lyrics to a song that cheerily preceded the showing of a Disney Channel Original Movie, or DCOM, if you will. If you miss singing that tune before settling onto your comfy couch in the family room, you're in luck, because Netflix has many Disney Channel Original Movies available for your nostalgia viewing. Sure, this time you might be watching them on your lumpy Ikea couch in your tiny studio apartment, and you may not have the customary pre-DCOM song to herald the viewing, but watching these movies now will still be every bit as exciting as it was back in the day.
It might even be more exciting now, because everyone knows that hindsight is 20/20. If you're watching a movie from the past, the chances are that you'll appreciate it even more than you did during your first viewing. So you'd better watch all of Disney's made-for-TV-movies on Netflix now, listed below, especially because they won't be available on the service forever once Disney's streaming site comes out in 2019. Then again, by that time, life might be so similar to Smart Housethat you won't need to watch DCOMs for entertainment. Who knows!
