Disney's Children

I saw an add for this film the other day. It made me wonder how hard it is for a Disney child to grow up and out of the roles that they play. Wizards of Waverly Place is one of my personal favorite Disney shows - is there any chance I'll get to see David Henrie in some real roles once his character graduates Disney? or Bridget Mendler, from Good Luck Charlie - she's been in almost every Disney Channel show there is, and they finally just gave her the show "Good Luck Charlie" as her own - is she tied to it forever?

It's obviously possible for a Disney star to go elsewhere - Selena Gomez in Ramona and Beezus, Zac Efron in all his post HSM films, Dylan and Cole Sprouse as Danimals spokespeople. But how hard is it to get there? Is it just who has a better agent? Or are those who stay with Disney content with what they've got?
