The Disney Channel was a favorite among teens growing up in the late 2000s, due to all the fun old TV shows featuring stars that we know and love even today.
It’s crazy to think that some of the biggest celebrities right now actually started out on Disney. Here’s how much former Disney stars are worth nowadays.
1. Selena Gomez – $20m
Selena Gomez used to earn a whopping $30,000 per episode of Wizards of Waverly Place. She now has a successful music career which also boosts her net worth.
2. Zac Efron – $18m
This woman magnet is rich because of all the High School Musical and Neighbors movies!
He recently got buffed up to star in the new Baywatch movie alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and frankly, looking at this guy, I can kind of understand why the ladies get so excited over him.
3. Demi Lovato – $20m
She hasn’t been acting that much recently, because she has been being busy putting out new albums. She literally has the voice of an angel.
4. Vanessa Hudgens – $10m
10 years ago, Vanessa Hudgens sang and danced into our hearts during High School Musical.
She’s no longer breaking free, she’s breaking bank!
5. Miley Cyrus – $160m
Most of this cash comes from Hannah Montana but she also has a crazy singing career with number one albums and tours!
6. The Jonas Brothers – $50m altogether
They had two Camp Rock movies, their own TV show, and you can’t forget about their music.
Sad that they split up, really.

7. Hilary Duff – $25m
She has a very successful singing career, and she also has her own TV show named Younger.
Fun fact: Hillary Duff is one of the few celebs that made it out of the Disney Channel without any scandals.
8. Sharpay Evans – $5m
Most of her net worth came from High School Musical, but she’s also a producer on Young and Hungry.
9. Lindsay Lohan – $500k
The Parent Trap and Mean Girls were the peak of Lindsay Lohan’s success, but since then she hasn’t really starred in anything due to alcohol and drug problems.
She was paid $2 million to do some interviews with Oprah but all that money went to paying off her previous debts.

10. Britney Spears – $185m
It’s Britney, b**ch! She was on the Disney Channel quite some time ago, alongside Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. She then became the queen of pop and put out eight albums, and recently started getting paid more due to her Vegas residency.

11. Justin Timberlake – $200m
JT is the most successful out of all of these, with his net worth tipping the scales at $200 million.
His amazing solo career and movie performances are certainly part of his enormous net worth.
For the good of this world, please put out more music, JT. We deserve it.
12. Shia LaBeouf – $25m
Even Stevens was the best show ever, but most of his money comes from his movies. Especially those movies that you may have heard of, called Transformers.
Well, Shia, when you’re done being crazy, come back and give us some more good movies. JUST DO IT!!
