Film: Tiger Cruise
Tiger Cruise is a Disney Channel Original Movie from 2004, starring Hayden Panettiere and Bill Pullman (Hayden's brother Jansen and Jennette McCurdy also appear); despite the title and the channel, it's not about animals but rather set aboard a cruise for military families dubbed Operation Tiger. Maddie (Panettiere) is a teenage girl who wants her Navy father (Pullman) to give up the life of a commander and stay at home... but during the cruise, the September 11 attacks on New York City take place, impacting all on board and causing Maddie to rethink her views.

This movie sticks out like a sore thumb among the usual kind of Disney Channel Original Movie, which may explain why it's rarely been shown on the channel and has yet to receive a video release in any form (see also No Export for You below).
