The Disney Channel Live-Action Universe.

''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' was Disney's most popular show since ''Series/LizzieMcGuire''. This [[FollowTheLeader directly led to]] the creation of more Standard-[[Creator/MNightShyamalan WITH A TWIST]]! Disney {{Kid Com}}s, including ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' (it and then-newcomer ''Series/HannahMontana'' would be the most-renewed[[note]]but not the ones with most episodes[[/note]] shows in all of Creator/DisneyChannel History). As ''That's So Raven'' ended (and its SpinOff, ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'', came onto the air), a gap was made in Disney's live-action entertainment and thus, with the popularity of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', further live-action Kid Coms were punched out.

TheVerse in which the shows exist was first established with 2006's ''That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana'', followed by 2007's and 2009's ''Wish Gone Amiss Weekend'' and ''{{Wizards| Of Waverly Place}} [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody On Deck]] with Series/HannahMontana'', respectively. The ''Series/ImInTheBand'' episode "Weasels On Deck" placed it into the DCLAU and showed that Creator/DisneyXD shows could be in the DCLAU as well. With the ''Series/ZekeAndLuther'' crossover with ''Peter Punk'', the DCLAU now extends to internationally-produced series, and with ''Jessie'''s crossover with ''Ultimate Spider-Man'', it can even be linked to animated series (specifically the ''WesternAnimation/MarvelUniverse''). If ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' were to have a crossover with any DCLAU show, then the universe would become part of an even larger SharedUniverse, since parent series ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' (and its accompanying TGIF-verse) is part of the ''Series/StElsewhere'' universe theory.

* ''WesternAnimation/MarvelUniverse'':
** A direct {{Crossover}} with ''Series/{{Jessie}}'' in the ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' episode "Halloween Night at the Museum" now links the ''Marvel Universe'' and the DCLAU together (note that this only applies to the programming block of the same name, which is its own self-contained universe/canon within the larger Marvel empire, and not [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse the actual Marvel Universe of canon]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** As a crossover episode links ''Phineas And Ferb'' with the ''Marvel Universe'', ''Phineas And Ferb'' is also logically linked to the DCLAU through the above (note that this episode explicitly exists within the canon of both ''Phineas And Ferb'' and ''Marvel Universe'', as opposed to the ''Franchise/StarWars'' crossover special which is explicitly stated to be non-canon for either series).

[[AC:Shows which may be in the Disney Channel Live-Action Universe but have yet to be confirmed:]]
* ''Series/CrashAndBernstein''
* ''Series/IDidntDoIt''
* ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'': Should this series be integrated into the DCLAU, it would be incorporated into the ''Series/StElsewhere'' SharedUniverse due to [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch numerous]] [[Series/StepByStep connections]] [[Series/TeenAngel its]] [[Series/BoyMeetsWorld parent series]] [[Series/FamilyMatters brings]] [[http://yujinishuge.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/crossoversscaled.jpg in]].
** For that matter, the larger ''TGIF'' universe may be either connected or wholly a part/synonymous with the DCLAU regardless (in much the same way OneSaturdayMorning is connected to the [[Franchise/DisneyChannelAnimatedUniverse DCLAU's animated counterpart]]), as the DCLAU is a SpiritualSuccessor to the old TGIF lineup to begin with (ABC was owned by Disney for much if not most of TGIF's existence and many of the production crew and companies went on to make many of the Disney Channel productions, including the first round of multi-cam live action shows, upon TGIF's discontinuation).
* ''Series/UglyBetty'': If so, would be the only series in the DCLAU not associated with any other show through actual production even if the TGIF/''Series/StElsewhere'' universe is included (though still airing on Disney sister network ABC); apparently, some of the characters of ''Ugly Betty'' follow London Tipton's ''Yay Me!'' vlog.
* ''Series/DogWithABlog'':
** At the end of the episode "Guess Who's a Cheater", Stan says "Good Luck, Charlie", just as Teddy Duncan does on [[Series/GoodLuckCharlie that show]]. It's still yet to be confirmed if this means that ''DWAB'' is linked to the DCLAU solely through RecursiveCanon or not.

[[AC: Shows linked to the [=DCLAU=] through RecursiveCanon only:]]
* ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'' (and by extension, ''Series/SoRandom''): The shows in the DCLAU are consistently referred to as fictional.
** In "Random Acts of Disrespect", in an old people sketch, several shows in the DCLAU are parodied as ''[[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Wheezers Of Waverly Place]]'', ''[[Series/ThatsSoRaven That's So Graven]]'' and ''[[Series/HannahMontana Nana Montana]]''.
** "Yeah, well, Chad still believes that Music/{{Miley|Cyrus}} and Series/{{Hannah|Montana}} are two different people."
** "Vision? Who are you, [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Raven]]?"
* ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'': ''Suite Life of Zack and Cody'' confirms it exists as a fictional movie series only within the DCLAU; their school puts on ''High School Musical'' as their actual [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin high school musical]], and Maddie [[ActorAllusion refers to]] ''[[ActorAllusion HSM]]'' [[ActorAllusion star Ashley Tisdale]]:
-->'''Maddie:''' Some people even say I look like Ashley Tisdale!
-->'''Zack:''' I don't see it!
* ''Madison High'' (an unaired pilot starring ''Dog With a Blog'''s G. Hannelius) explicitly exists in the ''High School Musical'' universe and thus would have been fictional in the main DCLAU as well.

[[AC:Shows which are not in the DCLAU (aka Disney Channel independents):]]
* ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'': The spiritual predecessor to the DCLAU, it has not been referenced in modern shows and was produced in a different format (a one camera setup as opposed to multi-camera) than the majority of DCLAU shows.
* ''Series/EvenStevens'': Like ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', it has not been referenced and has a different format.
* ''Series/PhilOfTheFuture'': Same as ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'' and ''Series/EvenStevens''.
* ''Series/{{JONAS}}'': In the series, the main trio is known as the ''Lucas'' Brothers and portray only expies of their real-world selves. This is in contrast to their appearance on ''Hannah Montana'', where the explicitly named ''Jonas'' Brothers act as they would in real life.
* ''Series/MyBabysittersAVampire'': Though it airs on the same channel, it is a Canadian import, not produced by Disney.
* ''Series/MrYoung'': Another Canadian import made by a non-Disney house.
* It's generally accepted that any Canadian production or co-production on Disney Channel and Disney XD thus far exists in a completely separate canon from the DCLAU.
* Thus far, no series produced prior to ''That's So Raven'' have been connected to the DCLAU. Likewise, no [=DCOMs=] that aren't directly adapted from DCLAU shows have been included in the universe (and it's possible even some of the DCLAU-adapted [=DCOMs=] might exist only on a quasi-canon status, or even in a complete non-canon status, including the ''Wizards of Waverly Place'' movie).

----
!Tropes constant across the DCLAU:
* AllThereInTheManual: While not necessary to enjoy the shows, the information hosted on Disney Channel's website fills in a lot of the backstory behind the plots and characters. ''Is'' useful if you're dropping into the middle of something both plot- and continuity-heavy like ''Wizards''.
* AlternateHistory: Apparently, President Martinez takes the place of George W. Bush in the DCLAU, since by the ''Series/HannahMontana'' episode "Hannah Montana to the Principal's Office", UsefulNotes/BarackObama is president.
* BiggerBad: Almost all DCLAU Show's have a BigBad, but on ''Wizards of Waverly Place'', Gorog seems to be the devil of the universe.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Done in kind of a weird manner in that often the characters will deliver a punch line and look directly at the camera while doing so, but not quite acknowledge that there is a fourth wall. It's just very weird.
* CaliforniaDoubling: Averted with surprising frequency, in that a few of the series actually take place in California but, outside of TheMovie, filming virtually never leaves a Burbank soundstage.
* CanonWelding: The three main founding shows of the universe (''That's So Raven'', ''The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'', and ''Hannah Montana'') were initially not connected at all. However, when Disney Channel got the idea for ''That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana'', the shows were connected to be in the same universe (which itself had then been immediately established). As of this writing, Disney Channel continues to use this tactic to connect more shows to the universe.
* CelebrityParadox: Subverted. Alyson Stoner and Music/AshleyTisdale all coexist with their characters in the DCLAU.
** Played with as well. In ''The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'', Cody tells Max that she's a better dancer than the girl in the Missy Eliot video; both are portrayed by Alyson Stoner. Also in ''The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'', Maddie believes that she looks exactly like Ashley Tisdale as [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Sharpay]], to which everyone else replies with "I don't see it."
* ComedicSociopathy: Pretty common in most Disney Channel live action comedies, actually, though some shows have more of it than others. On the more sociopathic side of the scale you have ''Wizards of Waverly Place'' and ''A.N.T. Farm'', and on the other side you have ''Good Luck Charlie''.
* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: As children's programming has always been a hot topic, there will be frequent "experts" who have much to opine without actually having basic knowledge of the shows they're talking about. Take [[http://www.laweekly.com/2013-06-20/film-tv/disney-tv-poison-daughters/full these]] [[http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2013/08/06/Disney-Channel-Nickelodeon-Corrupt-the-Tweeners two]] articles--whatever the validity of their argument, their points are not helped with some very basic factual errors. Misspelling series names ("''iCarly''" is simply "''Carly''", "''JESSIE''" is "''JESSE''"--and, to boot, a screenshot from that show is attributed to ''Wizards of Waverly Place''), much attention has been given over to shows that have been canceled, etc. Much of this would have been avoided if only they visited the shows' Website/IMDb pages.
* {{Crossover}}: The series in the DCLAU constantly crossover with each other, usually placing a new series into the DCLAU. "Take This Job and Love It!" was a crossover between ''Series/HannahMontana'' and ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'' and "Weasels On Deck" was a crossover between ''Series/ImInTheBand'' and ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOnDeck''.
** CrisisCrossover: The specials ''That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana'' and ''Wizards On Deck with Hannah Montana''.
** RedSkiesCrossover[=/=]CrossThrough: The ''Wish Gone Amiss Weekend'', in which, rather than interact, three shows were impacted by the same event (a magic shooting star). There were also the Lunar Eclipse episodes of ''Kickin' It'' ("Invasion of the Ghost Pirates"), ''Lab Rats'' ("Principal from Another Planet"), and ''Mighty Med'' ("Night of the Living Nightmare"), which all aired on the night of an actual lunar eclipse and featured paranormal occurrences thanks to the eclipse.
** CommonCrossover:
*** The Sunshine Girls organization appeared in ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'', ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'' and ''Series/HannahMontana''.
*** In the ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' episode "Checkin' Out", Raven uses a device called a Secretech. The Secretech previously appeared in ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'' episode "Forever Plaid", where London used it in class to check her schedule.
*** In the ''Series/HannahMontana'' episode "Would I Lie to You, Lilly?", Miley, Lilly and Oliver have a class trip to the White House, which uses the same sets from ''Series/CoryInTheHouse''.
* ContinuityOverlap: The single episodes in each series' that are a part of the Crisis Crossovers usually have an impact on other episodes in the crossovers, so much that it becomes downright confusing if you miss part of a crossover. Examples of this are Raven missing her flight in "Checkin' Out", causing her to stay in Boston in "That's So Suite Life Of Hannah Montana", and Bailey and Alex cheating in the Hannah Montana tug-of-war challenge in "Cast-Away (To Another Show)", which leads to Bailey trying to find another way to get concert tickets in "Double-Crossed".
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: A solid Disney tradition, given how many shows promote musical talent, though there are notable exceptions (both ''Suite Life'' series and ''Shake It Up'' being some of the most prominent subversions, though the latter's is still sung by Creator/SelenaGomez).
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It's almost a proud tradition.
* [[GorgeousPeriodDress Gorgeous Present-Day Dress]]: Everyone's always well-styled in bright, new clothes that fit well even though they're ''growing kids''. Stuff that's too big, washed-out, or half-outgrown is conspicuously absent. An EnforcedTrope for the girl protagonists--Disney markets character-wardrobe-based clothes--but even [[HollywoodNerd supposedly-nerdy boys]] look like they put a lot of effort into dressing the way they do ([[FridgeLogic maybe even more than the "cool" guys, since that clothing would be easier to find in stores]]).
* HighConcept: With only one real exception (''Good Luck Charlie''), all of the shows in the DCLAU have followed the high concept formula, and a few (''That's So Raven'', ''Wizards of Waverly Place'', ''Dog With A Blog'', ''Lab Rats'', ''Crash & Bernstein'', and ''Mighty Med'') are all completely fantastical.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Obviously for the DCLAU as a whole (and regarding the combined rosters of crossover events), but many individual shows in the DCLAU tend to have large casts as well, at least when including recurring roles.
* LaughTrack
* TheMovie: ''Wizards'', ''Suite Life on Deck'', and ''Good Luck Charlie'' all got a television movie. A ''Jessie'' movie has been approved. ''Good Luck Charlie'' also got two hour-long specials, as did ''[=A.N.T. Farm=]''. ''Shake it Up: Made in Japan'' is somewhere in between, with a 90-minute air time; although not promoted as such, it's effectively a television movie too. And in at least one case (''Hannah Montana''), The Movie was an actual theatrical release.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: President Martinez, to fit into the standard sitcom mold, is both a President Personable and a President Buffoon.
** He was [[PutOnABus butted out of office]] by an {{Expy}} of a [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama certain black man]], or, according to ''Series/HannahMontana'' and ''Series/AustinAndAlly'' (''Series/IDidntDoIt'' as well, if they make an official connection to the DCLAU), Obama himself.
* RecursiveCanon: Guest appearances and shout-outs confirm that every show in the DCLAU is a fictional show in ''Series/SonnyWithAChance''.
** Guest appearances shouldn't mean anything. After all, Maddie Fitzpatrick and Ashley Tisdale apparently both exist in the DCLAU (and, apparently, only Maddie herself ever noticed any resemblance between herself and the ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' star).
* RunningGag: Offering fruit juice-sweetened cupcakes (mostly in the more recent shows).
** Running Gags ''in general'': after all (and excluding the crossovers), running gags are what link the universe together in the first place. And, of course, each show will have its own set of running gags.
* SecretIdentity: For the Wizards, the Lab Rats, Raven, and Hannah/Miley.
** {{Secret Keeper}}s: And the necessary supporters of those secrets.
* ShouldntWeBeInSchoolRightNow: For the most part, played straight in most series, but many shows (''Wizards of Waverly Place'', ''Shake It Up'', the second season of ''Austin & Ally''), the school setting actually features very prominently, if not factoring into the plot in some fashion roughly OnceAnEpisode. ''A.N.T. Farm'' is the most notable and largest {{Aversion}}, as the high school and its social dynamics are the ''main'' focus.
* SlidingScaleOfBeauty: (InUniverse). Most of the protagonists are considered common beauty or special average, because usually they are cute and [[CoolLoser losers]].
* StudioAudience
* YouLookFamiliar: Due to Disney's practice of rehiring actors, [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Gwen]], [[Series/HannahMontana Mikayla]], and [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Alex Russo]] were all played by Music/SelenaGomez and [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Larry]] and [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Justin Russo]] were both played by Creator/DavidHenrie. [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Amber]] and [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody London Tipton]] were both played by Brenda Song; [[Series/HannahMontana Rico]] and [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Max's conscience]] were both played by Moises Arias; [[Series/CoryInTheHouse Samantha Samuels]], [[Series/AustinAndAlly Demonica Dixon]], and [[Series/HannahMontana Liza the photographer]] were all played by Lisa Arch, [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Principal Stuckerman]] and [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Herman Spatz]] were both played by Steve Hytner; [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOnDeck Olivia Cabot]] and [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Jenny Majorheely]] were both played by Gilland Jones; [[Series/HannahMontana the director in "That's What Friends Are For?"]] and [[Series/ImInTheBand Ash Tyler]] were both played by Stephen Full; [[Series/HannahMontana Mr. Corelli]] and [[Series/ImInTheBand Burger Pitt]] were both played by Greg Baker; [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Archie]] and [[Series/ImInTheBand Derek Jupiter]] were both played by Steve Valentine; [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Leah]] and [[Series/HannahMontana the Cracker]] were both played by Jaelin Palmer; [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Betty Jane]] and [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Nia]] were both played by Giovonnie Samuels; [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Max]] and [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Ally Parker]] were both played by Alyson Stoner; and [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Carly]] and [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Agnes]] were both played by Allie Grant. I could go on, but you probably get the point.
** Also applies to animals--for example, Bitsy from "[[Series/ShakeItUp Sweat It Up]]" is also Sweetiepie from "[[Series/GoodLuckCharlie Driving Mrs. Dabney]]".
