Favourite Disney Princesses


The Top TenXW

1BelleBelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast.

Reasons why Belle is the Best Disney Princess:
1. She doesn't want a prince
2. Her name means beauty
3. Asserts nerd pride and reads, despite the town mocking her
4. Rejects the good-looking jerk for the kind-hearted Beast
5. Has the ability to break spells with her tears
6. Wasn't born a princess
7. She doesn't need talking animals... SHE has talking FURNITURE

Belle is by far the best princess. She may be beautiful, but she doesn't spend her time maintaining her looks, she prefers reading. She doesn't fall in love with men because of their looks (cough cough ariel, sleeping beauty, snow white, cinderella, etc), but for their character. She's intelligent, kind, brave, and adventurous. She's not satisfied with a hum drum life of low expectations; she dreams of more, of adventure, and of someone who loves/accepts her for who she is. Plus she loves books above all things, above materialistic pursuits, appearances and shallow parties and people. She encourages girls to love knowledge and to express compassion and to not be obsessed with looks and societal standards.

Kind, intelligent, rejects the idiotic Gaston's advances even in a time when marriage was expected only one problem the bestiality thing

My reason is that even after the beast is turned back into a man she still loved him not because of his looks.

2MulanFa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

Mulan shows independence, maturity, bravery, everything a lot of the mother princesses seem to be lacking. She is a amazing role model for young girls, by her being the heroine, saving a whole country and the person she loves, yet putting her family before love, and making her man come to her rather than the other way around. She risks her life for her family, she was never in danger in the first place, not directly at least, yet she goes to war instead of her father to fight, putting herself in danger. She shows intelligence and strong characteristics. The best princess shouldn't be judged on beauty or singing voice, but how much of a role model they are, and show the young girls of today that it's good to be independent, instead of waiting around for true love and wanting to be beautiful.

How can Mulan not be the best princess ever? I mean, she is independent, doesn't care what others think, stands up for herself and ultimately saves her prince and China. How many other princesses do you know that don't get saved, but save everyone! And she is so intelligent-it was her smarts-tactics, that saved them against the Huns. Go Mulan!

How can we top her? She is, in my opinion, a true role-model for girls. Why? Because she shows bravery, respect, thoughtfulness, and a strong will for what she believes is right. She also puts family first, then the other warriors, and saves the entire China from the Huns with hard effort, quick thinking, and help from new friends. Why are other Disney princesses not my favorite? Let's look at Cinderella. Cinderella shows a girl not standing up for herself for many years, never directly voicing her opinion to her step-family. She never even got the guts to say, "you know what? I'm out of here." This movie tells girls that, "it's okay to suffer from constant torture and slavery, your wish will eventually come true." No. Girls AND boys, you guys gotta get up and pursue YOUR dream with YOUR own efforts. Don't hope that some fairy godmother is going to save you and get you a pretty boy who just falls for your looks anyway. Mulan pursues her love, whether it is her love ...more

Milan is not only a good warrior but she's very intelligent.

3ArielPrincess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.

She will always be my favorite! It's not that she's totally devoted to her man, it's that she believes in true love and why wait for something that "might" happen again, when there is someone right here who is everything you could want. I also love that her story is the first story where there is true love. She gets to know her prince and is able to fall in love with him on a whole other level. I also have a huge love for swimming, the sea, mermaids, and red hair laugh out loud. She also had a hand in helping to defeat her villian. If she hadn't stopped Urusala from blasting Eric, boom, movie would be over. She took on a vengeful woman with the power to control the very thing she's in fearlessly in order to protect the ones she loved. She won the love of her man without even having to speak to him. They truly connected in a beautiful way. In addition, she is the only Disney princess to have a daughter, Melody, and to be shown as a child and growing up outside of her original film. She ...more

Ariel has been my favorite princess for 19 years, ever since I was a little girl! Not only is she sweet and gorgeous(that beautiful red hair and blue eyes! ), and has the most beautiful voice out of all the princesses... But Ariel is adventurous, driven, and ambitious in every way. She knows exactly what she wants in life and isn't afraid to go after it. Ariel is the only princess to be brave enough to save her prince twice and risk being in trouble for doing so. When Ariel made the choice to give up her voice to be with Eric, I admire her so much for that. "It is better to be without a voice than to be without heart. " When she does meet Eric and they get to know each other, Ariel is able to make him fall in love with her without saying a single word to him. In the end, she is able to have true love, which seemed completely impossible. Ariel's and Eric's relationship and connection is truly a beautiful one! Plus, Ariel is a hopeless romantic, just like me. I absolutely love ...more

Ariel is iconic. That flowing red hair/blue eyes combo melts my heart. She longs for something that seems impossible, yet manages to achieve her desires, and is fearless. And of course she has the best voice used to sing the best Disney song. Ariel is beautiful in every way.

She is amazing; she is curious, gorgeous and her eyebrows are en flick, her hair is so cool and her voice is really good. She saves Eric from drowning even though she doesn't know him and she is just amazing.

4RapunzelRapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After.

Rapunzel is by far the best princess/heroine, she is smart, talented, rebellious, sweet, kind, one hell of a dancer and on top of it all she is self-sacrificing. She was kidnapped as a child and went through years of verbal abuse from Mother Gothel before she got the guts to talk to her about the lanterns. It's tough to confront someone who has been manipulating you since you were an infant and even harder to get out of a tough family situation you know isn't healthy for U. She brake away from Gothel with a theif who tried to throw her off her path and stayed strong to her decision. She managed to make an entire bar of "bad guys" open up about their dreams. She saves herself and her companions from drowning and heals them. Then, when confronted by Mother Gothel in the woods she tells her off and continues to chase her dreams. Once she achieves her dreams she finds a new one instead of settling. Then, after she has been tricked by Gothel she puts everything together and never ...more

Rapunzel without question is the best Disney Princess ever. She has all the best qualities of each Disney princess.

She has more talent, curiosity, and ambition than Ariel. Rapunzel loves Eugene more than Ariel loves Eric.

She doesn't fall for men because of their looks like Belle. Belle can break spells with her tears, so what, Rapunzel can do that and heal mortally wounded people with her hair. Rapunzel doesn't just read she has interests ranging from mopping the floor to candle making.

She is as tactical and has as much fighting spirit as Mulan. (She fights with her surroundings and a frying pan, her hair is more effective than batman's grappling hook) Mulan comes in close second for different reasons.

Jasmine can claim she didn't marry a blood born prince but Rapunzel didn't either.

Cinderella has faced hardships under the control of her godmother but she is not chained as property for eternity. In a way Rapunzel is a slave to mother Gothel. At ...more

But Belle hated Gaston from day one. Though in the Disney Channel original movie Descendants (okay movie, though it's overrated) Belle's character is kind of a jerk, though in her original movie she's cool. - Anonymousxcxc

Rapunzel is the best Disney princess for several reasons:

1. She's selfless. She attempts to sacrifice any and all chances of future happiness in order to save her true love. No other princess can say that, with the only possible exception being Anna when she guards Elsa from Hans.

2. She's brave. It takes a lot of guts to step out of your comfort zone and try new things, especially when you've been taped in a tower your whole life with only your mother and a chameleon for company. Rapunzel is able to take on a group of thugs her first day out of the house since she was born. That's pretty kickass.

3. She's kind. Rapunzel has a truly good heart, being able to see the good in people such as the Tavern Thugs and Flynn Rider. She is able to see their full potential.

4. She's a good leader. Okay, so we don't see a whole lot of Princess Rapunzel in action, but I think we have a lot of reasons to believe that Rapunzel will be a great ruler of Corona. During the ...more - breakfastunderthestars

She is the best

Jasmine, for me, is the best princess because she wouldn't let herself be pushed into marriage. She knew in her heart she wanted to wait for true love so she did it. She was very cautious being around Aladdin to make sure he didn't just want to marry her for her riches, which shows she has respect for herself. She is also very loving and forgiving because even after she found out Aladdin was lying to her she accepted that he lied so he could be with her and because he loved her.
She is a very strong and selfless princess which makes her the best.

I also like Belle but I really like Jasmine because she is brave and courageous (she tried running away from home) she also is very nice, pretty and she stands up for what she believes in.

Jasmine is the best princess because she's clearly the most independent princess of them all. Snow White and aurora married a prince just because the princesses woke them up from a spell. Cinderella and Ariel knew to marry their princes just by looking at them. I mean, can't females choose who they want to marry instead of just staring at them or talking to them... Only once? Princess Jasmine is the first person to show that you don't need to marry someone who is like you. You don't need to marry someone you wouldn't want to see in your life. Jasmine married Aladdin, who is a complete STREET RAT. Just to even go out with someone who has most likely been arrested a few times would be crazy! Jasmine married aladdin for love, and not for competition, which makes her a good role model for all young girls.

I don't know why I like jasmine. I guess I just like her story

6ElsaQueen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

First of all, Elsa is both a princess and a queen, which is awesome. Also, she has super-powers... who doesn't like super-powers? Also, Elsa is not a helpless romantic, like all of the other princesses. She is mature because she has to be, from that first moment she accidentally struck her sister, and she has to hold all of her powers inside, and not let anyone see who she is for her sister's protection, as well as the protection of her country. And when she accidentally strikes her sister and is forced to leave to the mountains, she doesn't want to go. And she clearly loves her sister. Her voice is beautiful, and her dress is awesome. The sisters save each other, not a guy, which is awesome. Elsa also shows that being different can be a great thing, as evident at the end when she made the ice rink.

Elsa is a very reserved princess, And the most matured of all of them, If you see, She doesn't spend time dreaming, She spends time trying to protect everyone important to her. Her voice (Idina Menzel, please correct me if I'm wrong) has a heck load of a voice, She is perfect for Elsa's matured character. She also has magical powers she may use for the good and for the bad. And she is also very loving, She has a better voice than Ariel's (No offense Ariel's fans! ) and she really gets the emotion of the story so yeah!

If you don't know who Elsa is, you HAVE to watch frozen! I'm a disney princess fan and Elsa, so far is the coolest, literally. Creating snowman, snow, ice, blizzards, you name it. Anything to do with snow and ice, Elsa has it all covered. Elsa has powers over ice, which is awesome! She protects her sister from her powers and its really sad that they can't be together because, Elsa, as an older sister doesn't want to harm her sister, Anna, again by locking herself in her room. Although Elsa was formerly a villain in the movie it's really good she didn't because then she wouldn't of become my favourite disney princess since she would've been the villain.
Elsa is beautiful and her powers and herself has beauty.

She's a Queen and she is very much overrated. Just an emotionally unstable Queen who can control weather.

Cinderella is iconic. Some may perceive her as weak or helpless, but she is in fact brave and strong. Imagine enduring years and years of physical and verbal abuse and continuing to maintain a positive outlook on life, an outlook in which you continue to dream of a better life. I don't think I could have maintained the same sort of self control and internal beauty that Cinderella possessed throughout her life. And speaking of beauty, she's gorgeous to boot. She is kind, sweet, and gentle, and even attempts to find the good in her evil stepmother and stepsisters, as well as the devious cat lucifer. She greets her greedy and rude and selfish stepsisters with a smile and a "good morning" even when they are so horrible to her. That takes strength and endurance. On top of that, she's witty and funny. She is the type of person deserving of a fairy godmother, someone who can't escape her current circumstances on her own. It is as though her beauty and kindness radiated from her, because why ...more

Many people criticize Cinderella for being too passive or sensitive, but this isn't the case at all. Cinderella is witty, intelligent, humorous, and brave. When her stepmother laughs at her when she asks if she can go to the ball too, she defends herself. She tries to make her own gown for the ball out of her sisters' hand-me-downs and actively pursues her dreams, instead of lying around in a coma like Snow White or running away from her problems like Jasmine. And, yes, even though in the end Cinderella needed outside help in the end from her fairy godmother, asking for assistance isn't a bad thing and is sometimes necessary. Besides, at least her magical donor wasn't a wicked witch with whom she made a completely-unfair deal with, knowingly and willingly (*cough cough* Ariel).

Cinderella is iconic, strong-willed, persevering, and sweet. Not only is she one of the most popular Disney characters, but, in my eyes, one of the best!

While I can't say that Cinderella is my favorite Disney Princess I do very much admire her and her story for many reasons. While we don't really see any character development in her story, we already have her backstory that shows that development. She was happy and kind and generous, all qualities which she kept though her parents died and her step family treated her like a slave. She learns to be patient and is determined to keep her head high with confidence and determination even though her family tries to repeatedly shame. Most people would complain in her situation but she doesn't, realizing she's just lucky enough to have food, shelter, clothes, and a chance to dream and hope at the very least. I don't really understand why people say Cinderella didn't at all work for anything where if you actually watched the movie, you see she did having gone through emotional and verbal abuse while having to act as a servant. And as what should happen to people in her situation, she is ...more

She is beautiful amongst all

8AnnaPrincess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

Anna is quirky, funny, and loyal. I mean, disney really did try and tried with a beautiful effort when making rapunzel and Merida. It was obvious that they wanted the out-of-the-ordinary princess who wasn't princess-like at all and didn't obey the rules and still remained effortlessly amazing role models. Yeah, well they tried once again with Anna, this time going the dangerous way out. They decided to make her... SOCIALLY AWKWARD. Yes, I know, hitting people with frying pans and eating an apple loudly and chewing with your mouth open while the kingdom watching are totally and insanely awkward. But no one in the real world can perform those things in real life, now could they (I mean, unless you really really wanted to...). Anna was just naturally awkward and weird when she met Hans, staring at him too long, calling him gorgeous on the spot, stuttering and stammering with her words. And how did she meet Hans in the first place? Oh yeah, that's right, she tripped over a horse and ...more

I think Anna deserves to be #1 on this list. She is forgiving. Do you think Anna knew why Elsa shut her out? No, she didn't. From her perspective, her sister just shut her out for a reason she did not know. Elsa kinda ruined her childhood (don't think I'm dissing Elsa, because I'm not. Elsa is cool too), but Anna stood up for her, set out to bring her back, and died for her (she did die she was just revived by true love). Which leads me to my next point, she's selfless. When it comes to her life or her sisters, she picks her sisters. Plus there was no way she could have known that she was gonna freeze.

She also is relatable. She clumsy and awkward. Even her hair is relatable. News flash for Cinderella: that is not how hair looks in the morning. Anna is feisty and strong. From hitting a wolf with a lute and a flaming sleeping bag, to throwing snowballs at snow monsters, there is no doubt she's feisty. She's not only physically strong, but mentally strong. Anna manages to stay ...more

If you think about it, who would you rather be friends with, Anna or Elsa? Sure Elsa has winter powers and cool hair, but Anna always has your back and is able to see beauty in everyone. What is more, Anna is able to see her quirks and embrace them, where as Elsa tries to hide them and be "normal." Which is the better image for young girls? Everyone acts like Elsa is so cool because she deals with hard problems. Anna has been through the same load of problems as Elsa. Also, Elsa knew why she was isolated, where as Anna is forced into her sister's self-created exile. Everyone likes Elsa because she has ice powers, but Anna is the one who touched all our hearts and gave the story a happy ending. Without Anna, Elsa would be in her state of self-exile (she would have found a reason to fear herself without hurting Anna). Without Elsa, Anna would have created many more fun adventures. Anna liked the idea of being loved, not Hans himself. Her "love at first sight" was an act of desperation. ...more

What were that stupid Jennifer Lee and stupid Chris Buck thinking? Huh? It's all the stupid directors' and writers' fault. They're the ones who decided to tear the best royal sisters Anna and Elsa apart.

She got a frozen heart +=//

Now, people. Listen carefully...Most of these little girls absolutely LOVE Merida but now it's up to the older people to decide. Every stinking princess out there is either spoiled, being bullied by there mother--or step mother, or just living an average life. Seem the only princesses I care for are Merida, Mulan, Pocahontas and Tiana. Tiana is the only princess who actually works to get her dream. Mulan risked her life for her dad. Pocahontas stopped war between to different cultures, or groups with different cultures. And Merida has awesome hair...and Rapunzel too. But Merida also works hard for her dream. Every one out there just likes a princess because they're pretty or can sing. Merida isn't pretty or can sing, Actually she never sang and she's really pretty in my opinion. So forget that, Merida, sure you think she's a brat, if you do you're wrong. Merida just doesn't like being told how to live her life. Sure, she's not in as bad as a living situation as the others, but what if ...more

Merida, like Cinderella is not my favorite Disney Princess but I still respect her though I am a bit disappointed. When I first saw the trailer I was hoping that Merida was going to be a more amazing Scottish version of Mulan. I was a bit disappointed when I saw she in truth didn't do much with a sword or bow and arrow throughout the movie, I was very happy that she grew in a way I'd never seen a princess grow before, politically. She was rather brutish at first, thinking of her own wants rather than the needs of her kingdom and its people. However as she goes through a rather muddled adventure with her now bear turned mother, she learns to think more about others though she still wants to keep her opinions in tact. I think that was interesting as I've never seen a princess become politically involved (well technically Pocahontas was but she already knew her values it's just that she was wondering what the right thing to do was). Also I think it was nice to see her grow in maturity as ...more

She wasn't a big hit at first with the little girls, but later her movie was released and she became a big come back. Once her coronation began little girls had swept off their feet and ran for her. She's the only princess so far with out a prince and I really admire that about her. She also fights for her freedom and fights her dad to save her mother. Plus
She's got mad archery skills, I'd bet millions of dollars that she'd beat Katniss, Hawk eye and Robin Hood in an archery contest. I mean, come on, she shot an arrow three times in a row the split an arrow in half! Merida doesn't care about what she looks like (though she is really pretty) and she doesn't have a love story like the MOST (Mulan does not) princesses. I personally LOVE her so much! She's my all time favorite princess. By the way: I'm The biggest Brave fan, and Tangled fan.

Merida is awesome. Her hair adds to her character but also she is an incredible archer. She split an arrow in half with another arrow. Also even though she turned her mother into a bear she worked her butt off trying to turn her back. And Merida didn't need a guy's help (except for her brothers). Brave proves to girls that they are strong and they don't always need a man's help.

As an Indigenous person, I viewed Pocahontas as a positive racial and cultural representation of Native Americans in the mainstream media, (of which is unfortunately lacking in the media industries and representations) throughout my childhood. Many of the scenes displaying traditional practices and ceremonial conduct, (and how awesome that used to be) instigated a curiosity to understand and be educated about my own culture. Despite being historically inaccurate, surprisingly, the film correctly presented many Indigenous mentalities, philosophies and morals of protection of our mother earth, and maintaining healthy and equal human relationships to those around us. I probably sound cheesy now, but it's just pride in my race and more importantly my culture, which individualizes Indigenous peoples more so than their ethnicity! As a child, (now a teen) I was glad Pocahontas at least was a media representation of indigenous peoples that wasn't some white person playing dress up like an ...more

I believe Pocohontas is the best heroine out of all of the Disney films. When you watch the film it you quickly fall in love with Pocahontas as she struggles to find the right path for her. I admire her so much. She is independent, strong, caring, kind, adventurous, fun, understanding, loving, mature and very in touch with nature Out of all the Disney princesses I believe she is the best role model. Also her love for John Smith I believe to be the greatest love that any of that Disney princesses have. Pocahontas behaves as if she has lived a thousand different lives but also carries this innocence and purity which makes her very unique to the other princesses. I also lover her appearance, her face in the movie is less expressive than the other Disney characters but it still conveys the emotions she if feeling and I believe the subtly of this makes her character more unique and mysterious. Honestly I think she is the best Disney princess and I think of her as being in a different ...more

She is very true to herself, and she wasn't afraid to risk anything for what she believed in. She felt she was being told to find love with a man she would actually love, and she did. Sometimes it's okay to not follow the rules. Sometimes you have to follow your heart.

She hold her ground

The Contenders

11TianaPrincess Tiana of Maldonia is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog.

The only reason Tiana is down here is because she is one of the most forgettable princesses in people's eyes. Though in my opinion, she should be way higher because:

(1) She is a very outside of the box character. I mean, besides Rapunzel, Anna, Merida, Pocahontas, and Mulan, all the Disney princesses are either too fancy, or whiny, which is extremely stereotypical. Tiana wasn't like this. I mean sure she wasn't a princess at first but that's not the point. I mean even before some Disney heroines were princesses they acted annoying as heck. But with Tiana she was different. She was independent, hard-working, and she made sure that no one pushed her around or kept her from her dream whether they we're male or female.

(2) She was our first African American princess, which is good for young black girls(I'm the same race so I'm not being racist)

(3) She wasn't a damsel-in-distress. And I know you're thinking this doesn't make her different at all but it does. I mean ...more

I like Tiana because she is one of the only disney princesses that worked hard to achieve what she wants. Tiana is also more down to earth and has experienced suffering (the death of her dad) but she uses that to motivate her. I also find Tiana one of the most mature, despite having her childlike belief on wishing on stars, she realises that she has to work as well, since she has experienced how tough life can be. Finally, she isn't obsessed with the concept of love and her dream is more realistic. Also she isn't reliant on anyone, she uses other for support but stands on her own two feet.

She is no doubt the most independent, strong willed, and feisty. Princess yet. She has changed the meaning of a Disney Princess forever. She waits for no man, and knows how to get where she wants to be. Settling down and preforming "womanly duties" is nowhere in her life plan. She is a role model to all women. She is spunky with just the right amount of maturity and femininity. Her many talents get her so far in life. And she doesn't need a man to help get her there.

She is the ugliest princesse

How could anyone dislike Aurora? Although most of them think she doesn't do much, that's not true. I mean she didn't get a chance to do anything. Just think if an evil fairy curses you and the fairies bring you up in the woods, is that wrong? Even if it had belle, ariel, mulan, cinderella, snow white, jasmine or anybody else the same fate must have happened to them too. What will she do if the evil fairy orders her to prick her finger? , I should tell you this, she pricked her finger because she was not conscious and was thoroughly enchanted by the fairy's spell and not only she but all the other princesses should have done the same and she was helpless and only because she was helpless and can't do anything or get a chance to do anything it doesn't mean she is low or useless. I just wanted everyone to know that each princess is very special and we should not think that only one or two are the best and beautiful. But aurora is my favorite princess and I am saying this for all the ...more

How can you not love Princess Aurora? Even though she has been hidden with the fairy godmothers almost her entire life, she is still so sweet, imaginative, and of course, in my opinion, the most beautiful princess and best singing voice! Lastly, Aurora has the best prince - Prince Phillip has personality and slayed a dragon for her - and the villain, Magnificient, is pure evil - not comic relief - and had the power to turn into a dragon. So yeah, not only is Princess Aurora the best, but so is her leading man and enemy!

Princess Aurora is the icon beautiful princess, with her long wavy hair. Many teens lost her time for get dress even some princess like Jasmine and not be but lucky princess like Belle, but Aurora don't. Judging by the way her fairy-aunt did the birthday party for her, they are worthless when they are human that's mean Princess Aurora as Briar Rose has much responsibles to do. Although, she fall in love at first sight but thinking what will you do if you met who you dreamed every night. Besides, Maleficent was tricked and enchanted her, she just did it because she really love Philip so don't blame her. She is the true princess.

If we got to know Aurora more, I think she would be much higher on my list of favourite Disney princesses. She only got 18 minutes of screen time in 'Sleeping Beauty'. I just think she deserved more time

13Snow White

Frankly, my favorite princess is actually Cinderella, but Snow White is so disgustingly underrated. People call her stupid, weak or say she has no personality, but she is far from it. Snow White is sweet, optimistic and always tries to make the best of everything and see the good in everyone. She is also very selfless, apologizing to the animals after crying and cleaning the cottage which she thought belonged to children. She is always trying to cheer others up. Plus, she is bossy and spunky, which I love. She knows she has the Dwarfs wrapped around her little finger - just look at the scene where she tells the Dwarfs to wash - and has a playful sense of humor - she's always teasing Grumpy. Sure, she's a bit naive, but nobody is perfect, and she was sheltered her whole life.

I've loved Snow White ever since I was a kid, and it's always bothered me that people dismiss her as being weak and stupid. She may not be as physically tough as some of the other princesses but she shows a lot of inner strength throughout the movie. She's most known for being optimistic and kind, but she's also a strong leader (think of how she bosses around the dwarves) resourceful and persuasive (she has some major networking skills, think about how she not only convinvced the animals to help her find a place to stay, but also managed to convince the dwarves to let her stay with only her cooking and cleaning skills as a bargaining chip) and hardworking (imagine working as a slave in your own household for your entire life) I admit, she's not as well-developed as the other princesses in terms of personality, but that's just due to the nature of being from the first ever full-length animated feature. And sure, she wants to marry a prince, and eventually does need to be saved by him, ...more

I love Snow White she was the first princess not to mention I adore her voice and songs
The fact that she is innocent and how she just connects with the animals of the forest and the dwarfs just makes her my number one princess! She is very feminine and I just adore her I can't even describe!

Snow White is beautiful and portrays a classic Damsel in Distress

She's so much more different than all the other princesses because she's independent and you gotta love her snarky attitude!

How can you not love her? She's cool, sassy, and sarcastic! She's an amazing character a lot of people can relate to. Her and Mulan are by far the best.

Awesome. Aweome. Awesome. Is how you explain her at least this princess DID something. Sleeping beauty is not my target in this point though, because she couldn't do anything. Ariel, Snow White, and a few others just got careless, I'm not holding them against this, because a lot of little girls look up to them. But seriously Anna from frozen caused everything terrible that happened, no offense. Anyway I got a little off track there but my point is, Meg is the best!

The people who don't like her I feel bad for because they are missing so much by far she is my second favorite princess

15EsmeraldaEsméralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

She stands up against racism, protects her people, looks past and never comments on Quasimodo's deformities, defies the unjust laws, and has a goat. Plus when she first meets her future husband she fights him with a candlestick as her only weapon.

Okay, she fights for the minority and against racism and for her people. How is that not awesome? And she's smart, beautiful without being conventional, and can kick butt. IN A SKIRT. I mean, I love Mulan, but I like the fact that Esmeralda can kick butt without cross dressing. She never judges people and fights for justice. Plus, goats.

She may not be the best but she certainly is the prettiest. I mean she had all of the 3 main guys drooling over her. Plus she has a goat. Case closed.

Even though she may not be a princess she sure as hell deserves to be. She stood up for equality and justice for her people and Quasimodo. She is also very grateful for she has and prays for others less lucky than her to be treated better. Another plus is that her movie is beautiful as hell and deals with problems still faced today, but wouldn't dare be touched by Disney.

Sure all the other princesses have a prince. Does Vanellope have one? No. She was an outcast but still wanted to live up to her goals. Her goal was to win a race not ask, "When will life begin? " or crawl away from the problem like Jasmine, Aurora and Snow White. She also doesn't pine for a prince like Anna, Snow White, Belle or Kida. She also lives ALONE like Aurora, Snow White, Jasmine, Tiana, Kida, Belle, Anna, and every princess ever made. Elsa doesn't count cause she's not a princess, She's a Queen. The others need baby sitters.

She was a princess once, wasn't she? Besides, she keeps being funny even after suffering so much. And she prefers democracy! Which means she's not selfish. What else can we ask?

Vanellope kicks butt! Now I don't know about you but she gives up royalty to be herself! How can you say she is selfish? All she wanted was to win the race because everyone else wouldn't except her for who she is thanks to King Candy! Also she cares for Ralph and the become best friends!

That's Disney PRESIDENT! She would hate being called a princess.

Alice is awesome and cute but she is too well mannered for my liking. I get so frustrated when I watch Alice in Wonderland as she just walks through and says "um excuse me" quietly, instead of yelling "hey tell me how to get out of here right now! ". She puts up with way to much.

So putting up with frustrating things is annoying to you? Having a role model who's always polite, kind and considerate?

Alice is very well mannered and sweet. Now I can't say the same about myself but were not here to talk about me! I mean her beautiful flowing blonde hair is just the best!

Alice is not a princess

I love lions and she is so cute and fluffy. Even though I think Simba is cuter she is my best character in the Lion King. Also the Lion King is my best film ever! And I am desperate to see the musical of it! So my Grandma and Grandpa will probberly take me for a present. Very sweet. I nearly see the film every weekend. I just love the film and Nala. Even though she isn't really a princess, Simba is a prince but she becomes the Queen. She the BEST! In my opinion she should be crowned the best Disney character and have a crown and a big trophy and medal made of real gold. She should be number one. I know all the words to the Circle Of Life, Hakuna Matata and Can You Feel The Love Tonight and I Just Can't Wait Till I'm King. All of the songs. Scar is my second best character in films. In conclusion I thnk Nala is the best princess and the Lion King is the best film ever!

Come on lets be real...Nala stand up for what is right! She is beautiful and Queen of the pride! Also she cares for her family and will do anything for them!

I like Nala because she is brave, adventurous, a hunter and a fighter.

Brave: she travels into the rainforest in search of Simba, who most of the pride thought was dead.

Adventurous: she goes on an 'adventure' with Simba to the elephant graveyard at the start.

A hunter: she's a lion!

A fighter: Nala fights Scar to protect her pride.

NALA IS AWESOME! She should be number 2, even though she's not a human.

Giselle is someone who isn't a role model to start out with. She isn't smart. Yet she can teach much: She is like the typical 5-year old girl. And then she grows to be brave, make good decisions and have a complex, real relationship. Unlike other princesses who are either hopelessly in love with someone they've never met, she learns that that is not reality.

Princess Giselle is a great disney princess. She loves princes. She loves animals, She loves castles. She likes Phillip, Naveen other princes. She loves all the princes. She loves the castles.
She loves all the castles She knows.

Giselle is someone who gets left out a lot! I mean I understand where people say she isn't a Disney Princess because she isn't animated but she is from time to time. And those curtain clothes who would have thought!

Giselle is fun kind but needs a dictionary and her voice is beautiful!

Jane is amazing. She's intelligent, curious and adorable. She overcomes her fear of a man that seemed to abduct her, to teach him about the "civilized" world and to learn about his. She is insistent on justice and fairness, as seen in her behavior towards Clayton and the poachers. She learns that non-Anglo, "uncivilized" life is not inferior and eventually chooses to spend the rest of her life in the world she's learned about growing up and which is so beautiful, AND also with the boy she loves. I honestly don't understand why she and other non-classic yet awesome nonroyals don't get more marketing.

Jane is literally one of my favourite Disney characters ever. She is intelligent, inquisitive, adventurous, patient, compassionate, funny and sweet. Also just that accent, I could listen to her talk all day. She does not deserve to be twenty second

Jane is such a sweetheart. She actually is willing to go out there and study what she loves best. And she's perfectly fine falling for the uncouth jungle man, and is willing to fight for him and his gorilla family. She deserves a much higher rating, and a lot more popularity.

She obviously loves nature and gorillas. Plus she's queen of the jungle
