It seems like it's been forever since Miley Cyrus said "ya think?" on Hannah Montana. But while Miley is now doing her own thing, the Disney Channel is going strong, making the same sorts of shows it always has. They really seem to have a formula down. Here are a few ingredients so that you can make your very own Disney Channel show!
1. An awkward teen with a mysterious secret. Whether it's psychic abilities, pop-stardom, or magical powers, Disney leads have to be relatable underdogs in high school with cool double-lives at home.
2. A few inane catchphrases. So that children can forever irritate their children saying "sweet niblets!," "oh snap!" and "what's the sitch?"
3. Out-of-touch parents. Because Disney Channel parents basically exist to misuse texting acronyms and embarrass their kids with weird dances.
4. Meddling siblings. Whether older or younger, brothers and sisters ruin all the fun.
5. An enthusiastic laugh track.Because sometimes, you really need to be told that it's funny.
5. A dim-witted and often vain friend. Supplying the over-eager laugh track with tons of material.
6. A racially diverse clique of mean girls. Showing girls of all backgrounds that they can be b**chy too!
7. A body-swap episode. Whether or not the show has any magic in it, there has to be a body swap episode.
8. Cross-show appearances. Of course there is an episode called "Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana."
9. A theme song sung by the star. And it's always terrible.

Riley Matthews, daughter of Boy Meets World stars Cory and Topanga, is about to discover the one lesson that we all learned growing up: "Life's tough. Get a helmet." Why you ask? Because she's now the star of a brand new series! Disney Channel announced on Monday morning that they have officially picked up Girl Meets World and will begin production in Los Angeles this summer.
The series will follow in the footsteps of its beloved predecessor, starring Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as our favorite high school sweethearts Cory and Topanga. For die-hard fans who wonder where Cory and Topanga ended up after the series ended, they'll soon see that Cory has followed Mr. Feeny into teaching and Topanga has opened a trendy after-school hangout specializing in pudding. Yes that's right, Pudding.
This time, however, the focus isn't on Cory and his best friend Shawn's shenanigans but rather the pre-teen antics of Cory and Topanga's daughter, Riley Matthews, played by Rowan Blanchard. Set in New York City, the series will "tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that Boy Meets World is renowned for, only this time from a tween girl's perspective," Disney Channel stated. Taking a page from her father's legendary story of friendship, Riley has her own girl version of Shawn, the character portrayed by Rider Strong.
"Boy Meets World and its story of adolescent self-discovery resonated with an entire generation of tweens. In the same way audiences fell in love with Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, we look forward to introducing our viewers to their daughter, Riley Matthews ... and building a memorable connection with a whole new generation of fans," Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President of Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.
It is yet to be determined whether Shawn or Uncle Eric (Will Friedle) will make an appearance, but it has been confirmed that Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) will sprinkle some life lessons into the show's pilot during its 2014 premiere. Who's looking forward to a reunion with the Matthews family and F-F-F-Feeny?
