La Chaîne Disney is a Canadian French language specialty channel owned by Teletoon Canada, Inc., a subsidiary of Corus Entertainment, and launched on September 1, 2015, replacing Télétoon Rétro. It is a localized version of the U.S. subscription network Disney Channel, broadcasting live-action and animated programming aimed at children in French in Canada.

The launch of the network came alongside a licensing deal reached between Disney and Corus, in which it acquired Canadian rights to Disney Channel's programming library, and the announcement of a Canadian version of Disney Channel broadcasting in English that launched concurrently. Previous rightsholder DHX Media never operated any Disney Channel-branded services in English or French, and its only French-language Disney-branded property was a French-language Canadian version of the preschool children's brand Disney Junior.

Programming

La chaîne Disney's programming consists mainly of French-language dubs of existing programs from Disney Channel. Disney XD and Disney Junior programs are also included as part of their respective programming blocks, Disney Junior sur la chaîne Disney and, previously, XD Zone (shown on air as Disney XD Zone). Both blocks also shown programs from Disney Channel and other broadcasters based on their respective themes. Original series from the three channels are labelled in bold.
