The recently released streaming service Disney Plus provides access to a multitude of old-school Disney content. Let’s take a look at some of the 2000s shows that are worth watching.
The recently released streaming service Disney Plus is the ultimate hub for all Disney content. Movies, shows, favorite characters, and favorite episodes are all accessible. However, with all the Disney content available to stream, the question may be where to start.
Well, Disney Channel did have awesome content for those who grew up watching it in the 2000s. The 2000s were filled with Disney shows that now give off an old-school and nostalgic vibe. This time also signaled the rise of many singers and actors that are well-known today.
With that, here are some shows exclusively from the 2000s to consider streaming on Disney Plus:

Lizzie McGuire (2001)
Teen Lizzie McGuire (Hillary Duff) is just trying to navigate the difficult life of a middle-schooler. However, she will not have to tackle her teenage years alone; she has the support of her parents Sam (Robert Carradine) and Jo (Hallie Todd), her sly brother Matt (Jake Thomas), and close friends Miranda (Lalaine) and Gordo (Adam Lamberg).
Lizzie also has someone on her shoulder, figuratively, which is a cartoon version of herself often spilling the beans on what she’s thinking. A spin-off series is in production and will be released on Disney + at an unspecified date. It will showcase Lizzie when she’s 30.
That’s So Raven (2003)
At first glance, Raven Baxter (Raven Symone) is just a normal teen going through high school. She has loving parents, a cunning and immature brother named Cory (Kyle Massey), and two close friends named Eddie Thomas (Orlando Brown) and Chelsea Daniels (Annaliese van der Pol).
Yet, this “normal” teen has the magical ability to see portions of the future. Often, Raven is trying to make sense of what her different visions mean, resulting in her interfering with upcoming things yet to happen and living with the results.
As the gifted character continues to toy with her powers, she finds herself in tricky situations as messes arise! A sequel called Raven’s Home released on Disney Channel in 2017, which portrays Raven as a mother.
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (2005)
Top-notch hotel? Check. Raucous twins ready to destroy it? Check. In this hilarious sitcom, two rowdy teen twins named Zack (Dylan Sprouse) and Cody (Cole Sprouse) get a chance to live a lavish life in one of Boston’s finest hotels, the Tipton, due to their mother Carey’s (Kim Rhodes) new job. The twins see it as an opportunity to run free and wreak havoc on the hotel and its guests.
This duo becomes the king of antics, much to others’ chagrin. Between playing games, scoring dates, and going to school, the boys are regularly seen dealing with grumpy hotel manager Mr. Moseby (Phill Lewis), intelligent candy-counter girl Maddie Fitzpatrick (Ashley Tisdale), wealthy trendsetter London Tipton (Brenda Song), bellhop Esteban (Adrian R’Mante), and failing inventor Arwin (Brian Stepanek).
Watch as young Dylan and Cole Sprouse grow up before your eyes in this suite sitcom!
Wizards of Waverly Place (2007)
The Russo family is anything but normal. Jerry Russo (David DeLuise) may have given up his wizard powers when he tied the knot with Theresa Russo (Maria Canals Barrera), but his three kids are blessed with abilities that normal teens cannot possess. The “regular” family runs a sandwich place in New York City, but their big secret looms behind closed doors.
Follow the Russo kids, Alex (Selena Gomez), Justin (David Henrie), and Max (Jake T. Austin), as they navigate teen life consisting of high school, romance, friendships, and of course the growing pains of having magic at your disposal. It’s not easy keeping supernatural powers to yourself and becoming a skilled wizard is anything but the simple casting of a spell.
The Suite Life on Deck (2008)
In this spin-off to The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, the now high school-aged Zack (Dylan Sprouse) and Cody (Cole Sprouse) decide to attend school on the S.S. Tipton, a massive cruise ship with all the best amenities on board as it traverses around the world.
More open space equals more pranks for the hooligans, right? You got that! The twins are once again up to their schemes and shenanigans in a whole new setting. Of course, the ever so grumpy ship manager Mr. Moseby (Phill Lewis) might have a few words to say about that.
Follow the twins again as they continue to grow up and learn about themselves. As Zack and Cody cruise along, they meet quirky Woody (Matthew Timmons), former celebrity Marcus (Doc Shaw), and small-town girl Bailey (Debby Ryan).
