Are you a fan of Disney Channel Original Movies? I know I am. When I was younger and a new movie was coming out on Disney Channel, it was the best night. Staying up waiting for that original movie intro and all of the fun things is beyond exciting. From High School Musical to Cheetah Girls to Camp Rock, the days of enjoying original movies were amazing. Although I may not be in grade school anymore, I certainly will go to Disney+ and watch some of my favorites in a heartbeat.

Rachel McCreight with Shane Co. created a list of each state’s favorite Disney Channel Original Movie. These movies were the movies that kids loved, sang, danced to, and everything in between all the time. We watched the premier, the sing a long version, and any sequel so excitingly. In order to determine the movies for each state, they turned to Google Trends to determine each state’s favorite. They used search terms from different sources like Collider, Cosmopolitan, and D23. Do you know what North and South Carolina’s favorite movies were? Find out below and tell us what you think!

  • North Carolina

    As for North Carolina, the favorite Disney Channel Original Movie is Descendants 3. Now, this is a bit newer and not one that I grew up on. But, I did watch these movies and I do enjoy them. I see why the kids now love and sing these songs 24/7 for sure. The movie first premiered in 2015 and took over instantly. Their third chapter Descendants 3 premiered in 2019.

  • South Carolina

    Now, on to South Carolina things are a little different. South Carolina’s favorite Disney Channel Original Movie is The Swap. This is one that I have never seen or heard about so I can’t give to much of my own opinion. The Swap premiered on Disney Channel in 2016. This teen film was part of Monstober in October of that year. Now, I am intrigued since South Carolina loves it, I might need to give it a test run.
