Zendaya’s character on the Disney Channel spy comedy “KC Undercover” has finally ended after three seasons. For the actress, that means she’s graduating onto bigger and better projects and a promising career. But before she’s on to the next thing, Zendaya took some time to celebrate the success of her show.
Dylan Sprouse sat down with Vulture for a chat about what he’s up to. Aside from sinking “most” of his money into a New York meadery with a seriously delayed opening, Dylan has been busy taking small-time rolls as creeps and nerds. It’s a far cry from his “Suite Life of Zach & Cody” days, but it sounds like there’s a reason for that. It’s the same reason he left Disney all those years ago.
Some Disney Channel fans got a bonus present from the network the day after Christmas. Someone at the network decided to dust off “Wizards of Waverly Place” for an all-day marathon, and Twitter couldn’t get enough of it. One even called the series starring Selena Gomez “the best thing to happen since sliced bread.”
Former Disney stars Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas took a trip to Disneyland together over the weekend. Joe was even kind enough to share the spotlight with his less famous brother. The two were spotted walking around the amusement park during Nick’s birthday weekend and visited with their previous boss, the one and only Mickey Mouse.
Unlike many other ex Disney stars, the brothers appeared to be celebrating their Disney roots. Their good friend Demi Lovato does not feel the same about her Disney days. She states that her time working with Disney was not the easiest.

The Disney Channel decided Saturday would be a very special holiday. As the actress is still gearing up for her mysterious role in the new “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie, the network ran a full day of movies and shows starring Zendaya. And some fans seem to think one day wasn’t enough.
Zendaya got in on the fun on Twitter, sharing a video of a little girl too excited by Zendaya Day to sit down. She also retweeted a video showing herself drawing Disney’s famous mouse ears with a magic wand several years apart, highlighting her evolution as a star. Fans tweeted about enjoying a full day of Zendaya on their TVs, and one fan even had special Zendaya-themed snacks.
Unlike her former co-star Bella Thorne, Zendaya doesn’t bad mouth Disney. Maybe that’s why the channel is showing her so much love.
