Despite boasting an impressive array of original offerings available on Disney Plus, many of the subscribers just want to watch their old favourites - such as Lizzie McGuire, DuckTales or Recess.


One film that many are scrambling to rewatch is Disney Channel's 16 Wishes, which stars Insatiable's Debby Ryan as Abby Jensen - whose wishes come true on her 16th birthday.

Depending on where you live, though, your own wish of revisiting this classic may or may not be granted - but we'll offer everyone a way to at least watch it somehow, be it via streaming or on DVD.

Is 16 Wishes on Disney Plus?

Sadly not - despite being a Disney Channel co-production, the film is absent from the streaming service.

However, it may well appear on Disney Plus in the future - where it will join the best movies and series, including the new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian spin-off Ashoka.

You can sign up to Disney Plus for £79.90 a year or £7.99 monthly.

16 Wishes is unfortunately not available to stream online or purchase digitally in the UK - which could be a good sign that Disney will soon add it to the catalogue. Watch this space.

However, it is still possible to watch 16 Wishes the old-fashioned way on DVD.

How to watch 16 Wishes in the US

Those on the other side of the Atlantic fare far better, as you can watch 16 Wishes in the US for free on Tubi.
