Some of the most memorable Disney Channel episodes are the ones with guest stars, whether it’s someone familiar or someone who becomes a household name later on in there careers. Here are 6 stars you probably forgot guest-starred on Disney Channel series!


1. Cindy Crawford on "Wizards of Waverly Place"

Supermodel Cindy Crawford appeared on a Fashion Week-themed "Wizards" episode back in 2009, playing a model named Bibi Rockford who came to life from a poster in Justin’s room. Alex stole the poster and used a magic copier to animate Bibi, then made her walk in a fashion show that Harper was interning for. Unfortunately, Bibi wanted to play a board game with Justin instead, so it took some convincing to get her to go back to work.




2. Jesse McCartney on "Suite Life of Zack and Cody"

Jesse McCartney was one of the biggest teen pop stars of the 2000s, and even the characters on "Suite Life" knew it! He starred as himself in a 2005 episode and London and Maddie frantically tried to meet him -- they even tried to sneak into his hotel room and disguise as waiters to talk to him!
