Crossing Over With Disney

Dylan Sprouse, Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment

By RabbitEars

On July 17, Disney Channel presents what it is calling “the crossover event of the summer.” It’s very likely kids and tweens will agree with the hype, since this event — called “Wizards on Deck With Hannah Montana” — will be intersecting three of the network’s hit series into one 90-minute telecast that brings together the stars of Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place and The Suite Life on Deck. Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, Selena Gomez, David Henrie, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Dylan Sprouse, Cole Sprouse, Brenda Song and Debby Ryan will be on hand for the three storylines:

8pm ET/PT: “Cast-Away (To Another Show)” — Justin is excited to meet London Tipton when he wins the essay contest prize, a cruise on the SS Tipton. Alex and Max get to go aboard too, and Alex bonds with new BFF Bailey. Soon, however, she gets into hot water when she uses magic to bring Harper aboard. Meanwhile, Max and Zack compete in a series of outrageous challenges.

8:30pm ET/PT: “Double-Crossed” — Hannah Montana boards the SS Tipton on her way to a concert performance in Honolulu. To impress Bailey, Cody enlists Woody to help him get tickets. Meanwhile, the Russos use a little magic to spice up their vacation — Alex pulls a prank on Justin, for which Mr. Moseby blames Zack, and Max introduces London to a magical suitcase.

9pm ET/PT: “Super(stitious) Girl” — While on the ship deck, Miley loses the charm ankle bracelet that her mother gave her and, when things start to go wrong, she is sure it’s because she lost her lucky charm. Meanwhile, Cody tells Bailey that he has a close friendship with Hannah, and promises to get great seats to her concert.

Tying in with this event is an online scavenger hunt at Disney Channel’s website. Prizes include Miley Stewart’s charm ankle bracelet, an SS Tipton life preserver signed by the stars, and wands from Wizards of Waverly Place. Users can long onto the site to find a list of scavenger hunt items, then tune in to Disney Channel each night at 8pm ET/PT from July 12-17 to identify them. After answering scavenger hunt questions correctly, users can register for a chance to win the grand prize.
