One of the best memories of our childhood is watching Disney Channel. The shows on Disney were amazing both from content and entertainment perspective. Over the years, a lot of things have changed on Disney Channel, from shows to the stars who appeared on those shows. Almost all former Disney channel stars have moved on with their personal life, chased their dreams, and have now become some of the most talked about celebs in town. Some went on to become the most hated celebs, and a few completely faded away from the entertainment industry. Do you want to know what those former Disney stars are doing now? Check these 'then and now' pictures of fifteen Disney stars!
1.Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens was hated by girls as she was in a relationship with Zac Efron and also due to her appearing alongside him in High School Musical. She has appeared in a number of Disney productions, but she is now making music, thanks to having a fan base from appearing on that one show, and appearing in movies that may not be blockbusters, but are still capable of keeping her in the public eye. She recently starred in the coveted role of Rizzo in 'Grease: Live', Fox's live broadcast based on the original Broadway musical.

2.Zac Efron

Zac Efron was a major teen heart throb thanks to him playing the lead role in the Disney movie, High School Musical. It is fair to say that girls went absolutely mad for him and he was mobbed wherever he went. Things have calmed down a bit for him now although he is still making some movies even though they are different from the musicals that he was most famous for as a teenager. He had his problems in the past with alcoholism, but he is doing well now. Although he's not getting many offers in big-budget movies, his acting career is still going well.

3.Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is a huge star, and her big breakthrough was in the 2008 Disney production Camp Rock. Since then she may not have changed much at least in the way she looks, but she has gone on to have huge success with an album that topped the charts as well as acting in a number of different projects. She continues doing good music. Her last music album 'Confident' received good response from people. People now recognize her as a singer more than an actor!

4.Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale was originally cast in 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody' where she played the role of Maddie Fitzpatrick. However, it was due to her appearance in High School Musical that helped her career take off, so she does have to thank Disney for virtually everything she has achieved. It looks like she gave a break to the music and now acting in movies.

5.Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan did appear in Disney productions as a child starting with a movie called 'The Parent Trap' along with several others that followed. It is perhaps fair to say that she has since managed to wander off the Disney path of a virtuous life and gone down another one completely with all of the issues she has had in her life. She is perhaps the most wayward ex-Disney star alive today.

6.Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez appeared on several different Disney shows as a kid and you can see why as she had that Disney look going on. However, now things are different as she has certainly blossomed into a gorgeous woman, is appearing in various movies, and is a singer with a number of hits getting into the top 10 of the charts.

7.Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus appears to be trying to completely do away with the clean-cut Disney image and has been trying to do so since she was old enough to do anything. Now she is twerking and being seriously over-sexual at any given opportunity when in reality so many people still sit and think 'Is that really Hannah Montana?'.

8.Britney Spears

Britney Spears is perhaps the most famous Disney star who then made it big as an adult. She has certainly not changed that much since her days on the channel, but even back then she had a bit of star quality. However, the angelic look with Disney has certainly changed as the other picture shows and perhaps she would not be welcomed back in some kind of reunion.

9.Anneliese Van Der Pol

Anneliese Van Der Pol was one of best actors in 'That's So Raven'. She has spent her time building up her career and has appeared in some critically acclaimed movies and TV shows in recent years, so perhaps she is a late bloomer compared to the others on the show.

10.Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake really made his debut in The Mickey Mouse Club where he starred alongside a young Britney Spears unaware of how things would develop between them. Since then he has of course found fame both with music and now some acting and he is one of the hottest stars around right now. He is probably the biggest male star to have come from a Disney background.

11.Raven Symone

Raven Symone started off on The Cosby Show, but she also had a career on the Disney Channel as well in her own show called That's So Raven. Since then she has gone on to appear in a number of movies, but it is fair to say that we remember her more as that little cheeky girl rather than anything that she has done since. She has now returned to television and working as co-host of 'The View'.

12.Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt started her career by appearing in Kids Incorporated on the Disney channel and she has certainly gone on to have a good career since those early days. She has of course now moved more into the world of television rather than Hollywood, but she is still working on a regular basis even if she is not at the height that she was previously used to. She had produced few movies in the recent few years.

13.Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera made one of her earliest appearances on the Mickey Mouse Club on the Disney channel and you could argue that she has then followed the path of Britney in the fact that she has now become a huge star in her own right. You would have struggled to imagine that the child on the left would develop into the adult on the right, but again she has Disney to thank for the career that she now has.

14.The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers made it big thanks to appearing in Camp Rock and even though their popularity has waned in recent years they have still sold almost 10 million albums around the world. They do still continue to make music, but their teen fan base has certainly moved on meaning each album is a bit of a struggle.

15.Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff of course played Lizzie McGuire, so even though she has since appeared in various movies, and considering it is not that long ago since she was making Disney movies, she is still known for that one role rather than anything else. She has also brought out a couple of albums as she attempts to broaden her horizon, but you get the feeling she will always just be seen as Lizzie.
