Some of the best times of our life is when we were only allowed to watch television like Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel.
Disney Channel was always my favorite when I was a kid. I grew up watching "Hannah Montana", "Wizards of Waverly Place", "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody", and many more. The child and teen stars of our time were honestly some of the best in my opinion. We had Miley Cyrus. We had the Jonas Brothers. We had Ashley Tisdale.
These stars really were a threat to other child stars. They were good actors and actresses. They were singers and musicians. Some were even good dancers. Disney really knew how to train their stars.
Now that we, ourselves, are all adults, these child stars are now adults themselves in their twenties and thirties. They left Disney to do bigger and better things. A lot of them decided to pick one lane of a entertainment career over trying to to juggle two lanes.
Some of these ex-Disney stars really release some great songs when I was child and teen. It's time from them to start making again just for old times sake.
