With Zac Efron hosting travel shows, Zendaya picking up Emmys, and Miley Cyrus producing jams to get us through quarantine, it seems like there's no better time to have been a Disney Channel star.

To remind you just how far some of these celebrities have gone, we're looking at the biggest Disney Channel stars, then and now. And for more Hollywood nostalgia, here are 24 Celeb Red Carpet Photos From 1990 You Have to See to Believe
