Have you always wanted to be a Disney Channel star? Uh, SAME. Well, we have some great news! DisneyNOW has a new “Be A Disney Channel Star” activation, which allows diehard fans to come as close to being a Disney star as they’ve ever come before. No, seriously!

As all OG fans of Disney Channel know, the biggest stars of the network each had their own Disney Wand ID. They’d use their wand to draw Mickey Mouse ears in the air, and the short clip would be featured during the commercial breaks. With this new activation, fans will be able to make their own Disney Wand IDs, and TBH, we can’t think of anything more epic than that. The app will allow them to save 10-second-long clips to their camera roll, and of course, send their own personal Disney wand ID to all their contacts. How cool is that?!

And do you want to know the best part? The new activation is available on DisneyNOW as we speak, which means if you haven’t already, it’s time to get the app. While it’s downloading, take a few minutes to watch some of your all-time favorite stars, including Raven-SymonéHilary DuffMiley CyrusSelena Gomez and so many others stars’ very own Disney Wand IDs. (Seriously, there are over 200 Disney Channel stars in this video.)

Brings back memories, doesn’t it? And if you’re looking for some more reasons why the Disney Wand ID is so iconic, we’ve got a few fun facts for you!

Did you know Raven was the first Disney Channel star to ever tape the Wand ID? Well, it’s true. And now, the Wand ID has pretty much become a right of passage for anyone who’s starred on the network. And since it’s become such a signature thing for Disney Channel stars to do, many parents have even cried while watching their child tape their own. Aww!

We think we can all agree that the Wand ID’s never get old, and it seems like some of the original stars of the network totally agree. For example, Raven and her costar Anneliese van der pol both made a Wand ID for That’s So Raven back in the day, but when they came back to the network for Raven’s Home, they got to do it again as adults.

Brenda Song also got to record more than one Wand ID. She first recorded one for Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and she recorded another when she returned to the network this year to voice the lead role in the upcoming animated series Amphibia. The series comes out on June 14, proving that we have a lot to look forward to. In the meantime, there’s no better time than now to make your own Wand ID, because let’s be real: You’ve pretty much been dreaming about this since, like, forever.
