A Crossover is a story which combines characters and settings from two or more separate fictional properties to create a single narrative.
Characters from various Disney-related universes have interacted multiple times throughout the companies history.
In some cases, it can occur in a self-contained scenario that has no relation to anything within a certain canon (various Disney movie characters appear on the show House of Mouse, with their appearances baring no relation to the established canon of their respective films). In other cases, properties that have their own established narratives and canon can interact, thus unifying said narratives as taking place in the same universe (various live-action Disney Channel sitcoms are strongly hinted to all occur in a single universe). Sometimes, different versions of characters from various properties coexist in a singular universe (the Kingdom Hearts series is a prominent example of this). Crossovers have even occurred between Disney properties and characters and concepts from entirely different companies (Kingdom Hearts once again serving as an example).
- Wreck-It Ralph: the movie features cameos by characters from various video game properties, such as Pac Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. These cameos are all considered as separate from the characters respective canons.
- Hercules: The Series: the episode "Hercules and the Arabian Night" sees Hercules encountering the characters of Aladdin.
- House of Mouse: the entire show revolves around Mickey Mouse and his friends operating the titular nightclub, of which various different Disney characters attend. Most of these attendees hail from movies in animated canon, though characters from old shorts, co-produced movies, comics, and even animated TV shows have also appeared.
- Lilo & Stitch: The Series: the show has crossed over with four of Disney Channels animated TV shows, implying the Lilo & Stitch canon and these four shows all exist in the same universe.
- Milo Murphy's Law: An upcoming episode about a crossover with Phineas and Ferb.
