Favourite Disney Princesses

The Top TenXW

1Belle

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

Mulan should be here. Enough said. Unless the votes change and Mulan is top tier

2Ariel

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 had the best animated series and had the most developed character. Her movies are the only sequals, besides the Aladdin ones, that I watch and enjoy watching. Her character was the original base for all the other independent princesses in future films.

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 her and she truly is iconic! Ariel is hands down the best Disney princess!

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.

Brave. Otherworldly. Independent. Disenchanted. And a she's a hoarder. There's more depth to this princess than many give her credit for.

3Mulan

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.

Mulan truly is the best. Here are the other's flaws:

Cinderella- timid. Teaches other girls that dreams and success come to you, and you don't have to work to chase it.
Opposite: brave

Snow White- idiotic. Despite being told hundreds of times not to accept stuff from strangers, she repeatedly accepts apples from a strange, creepy old woman unsuspiciously wandering around in the forest.
Opposite: intelligent

Sleeping Beauty- bland, lacks a personality. Sleeps for the majority of the movie, and dances/sings for the other parts. A dumbass who pricks her finger on a spindle like Snow White, despite being told all her life never to touch a spindle.
Opposite: Personality

Ariel: Throws away her talent, her family, her friends, and more for a random good-looking guy. Defies her father for love. Sneaks around, and wears revealing clothes (okay, she's a mermaid so I'll let her off of this one).
Opposite: Puts family first, mature

Jasmine: bold, intelligent, awesome. I actually like Jasmine, but she was more of a supporting character in the film. Didn't do much to resolve the conflict.
Opposite: main

Belle: Again, one of the few I actually like. Only problem with her is that she didn't try to fight back much, and didn't actually do anything towards the end. All she did was watch beast die in her arms, then- POOF- back to life. Still, Belle is amazing. A princess who likes to read! Go figure. However, her entire movie revolved around love. Can't there be a princess movie NOT about love?
Opposite: not about love

Tiana: Okay, so I'll have to admit that Tiana is really cool too. Hardworking and humble with a dream. However, she sort of put herself in all of the chaos by kissing a frog. If she hadn't done that, her problems wouldn't have started.
Opposite: caution

Mulan is all of the opposites of these princesses. She's brave, intelligent, has a personality (with a sense of humor), is mature, would die for her family, is ACTUALLY the hero instead of the prince, doesn't center her intentions on love, and is cautious too, not making impulsive mistakes. Don't get me wrong, princesses like Jasmine, Belle and Tiana are AWESOME- like, really awesome- but come on. Don't underestimate Mulan.

She saved China. She saved China. All of the other princess subconflicts sort of revolve around themselves, and people in their personal lives started the conflicts (i.E. stepmothers, beast, gaston, evil queen, Jafar) but Mulan's life had nothing to do with the Hun invasion. She chose to put herself out there and avoid social norms to save her country, which meant more to her than prancing around the ocean and falling in love with shipwrecked guys. Or going to a royal ball. SHE SAVED China. LET'S NOT FORGET THAT.

And sure, at the end she does kind of like Shang, but that's not the central point of it all. And don't use the argument "Oh, she's not a princess because she's not the daughter of a king! " NEWS FLASH: neither is Cinderella, belle, tiana, merida, and more. Don't use that argument against Mulan.

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!

Mulan isn't even a princess but she's still here. That's how rad she is

4Rapunzel

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 looses sight of what is the truth. Even when she has been deceived she has a gut instinct that is completely accurate. For her grand finale, she tells off Mother Gothel for good and fights her. When Eugene shows up and gets stabbed she continues to fight until she convinces Gothel to let her heal him in exchange for her power and submission. After her hair has been cut and Gothel is about to die she reaches out to Gothel as she falls to her doom, this shows her heart of gold. She then saves Eugene with that same heart of gold and a single tear. Once she is united with her family she is the best princess the kingdom has ever seen! She doesn't judge by appearance, station, or other wise and she encourages everyone to live their dreams! Rapunzel rules! Oh and she is an Artist!

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 the end, Rapunzel almost lost her entire lifetime to imprisonment. Cinderella doesn't resist, Fairy God mother and mice practically do all the work.

Every princess does more than Aurora

Pocahontas is good because she understand the world better than any Disney princess but wisdom comes with time. Rapunzel is a princess who learns quicker than any other princess and didn't get the chance to see the world like the others. But with the short time she had outside her tower she became more mature than most other Disney Princesses. I also admire Pocahontas.

Snow white is just loved by people because she is the first. well Rapunzel is the first of the computer 3D animated princess.

She is hardworking like Tiana.

She isn't spoiled like Merida.

In the Mulan section she is the princess that isn't mentioned in the flaws.

She is beautiful in every way, she is "innocent" and isn't contaminated by the worlds ideals. She loves the world and doesn't take anything for granted. She is pure even in dangerous situations.

Every Disney princess sings but Rapunzel's singing and good nature blows me away every-time.

I like strong-willed princesses and Rapunzel is definitely up there.

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 Kingdom Dance scene, the townspeople seem to trust her and to be drawn to her. Her interactions with the children at the end of the movie also lead me to believe that Rapunzel will be a good queen.

5. She's smart. She is able to adjust to the world outside her tower quite easily in an extremely short period of time.

6. She is a strong female character. People like to argue that Rapunzel isn't a feminist princess because she gets the guy. However, Rapunzel's goal was never to fall in love. It just ended up happening on her journey. Plus, Rapunzel and Flynn have one of, if not the best relationship in Disney movies. I love the fact that they save each other. Plus, she didn't get married right away. The events of Tangled Ever After take place a while after the end of Tangled. - breakfastunderthestars

She is adventurous and knows what she wants, while still being sweet and cheerful. She and her prince are the perfect couple because they got to know each other, and they love each other despite the flaws.

5Jasmine

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.

She's strong willed, intelligent and just overall awesome.

6Elsa

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.

Elsa is the best because she tries to protect Anna by staying locked in her room even though she is scared and alone which makes her the best

7Cinderella

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 else would the prince immediately single her out as his one true love? (does anyone else wish that the price had a name? ) Anyway, Cinderella's beautiful name reflects the sweet, kind, gentle, and strong woman she is. She never gives up on her dreams and is rewarded with her wishes coming true.

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 repayed for having done and gone through all this, getting the one thing she dreamed of to come true. While it's not the most realistic story, it does give a good message saying that if in everything you do you are kind, considerate determined, and patient despite how bad the circumstances might be you will be repayed. Another reason I like Cinderella is because Walt Disney said that he could very much relate to her, saying he often felt like her and that his hard work led to his dream becoming a reality. Not only was this the story and princess that Disney related to the most, this was also the princess that kept them from going bankrupt as they were about to before the sudden success of the movie upon its release.

Cinderella isn't my favorite, but I love that she stays kind hearted and optimistic, even suffering abuse.

8Merida

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 you were being told to become your mom and being turned into someone else and not yourself. She was picky at times but that shows how determined she can really be. She actually fights herself and doesn't have a boy do it for her. Oh, and she's like belle, (forgot to say belle is awesome) she didn't care about the man--or men-- trying to win her heart. Merida fought to change her destiny and didn't even have a side kick. Except for that awesome hair. I want it so badly. Plus, boys are disgusting and she's the first princess to end up independent! Go Merida!

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 I wished had happened in the little mermaid. In Brave Merida and her mother learned to respect their differences, understood each other better, and forgave each other for their mistakes. In Little Mermaid, Ariel still stayed a rather ditzy whiny young girl who asked for her daddy's forgiveness, didn't learn anything, and then feeling bad for her and having changed his opinions of humans, Trident let her keep her legs and be with her prince. Anyways while Merida isn't my favorite princess, I respect her for growing in maturity, becoming more politically savvy, knowing her way around a sword and bow, and being the only Disney Princess (official or unofficial) to not have a prince attached to her.

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.

She SO adorable! Not to mention her gorgeous red hair. But putting looks aside, she is the most outspoken, strong willed of all princesses which I am happy to see. She isn't too ditzy (like Anna and Rapunzel), has a sense of adventure, and has the archery skills of an elf. Also, she has a cool accent and that counts for a lot!

9Anna

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 landed in a boat. She's so clumsy, and I love it. That's what makes her so relatable. She's just the kind if girl who would look up at the clouds with wonder, only to have a bird poop on her head.

She's funny. She makes every line in the movie hilarious in the best way using her awkwardness and even using everyone's favorite: sarcasm. ;) She was just the type if character that kept you laughing and wanting more of her. She still remains womanly serious at all times with the ongoing dilemma if her sister locking herself away and trying to figure out why she likes kristoff when she lived Hans just moments ago. It's just so perfect.

My next favorite thug about Anna is is that she's loyal. Really, EXTREMELY LOYAL to her sister. Her sister one day abandoned their friendship and ignored Anna whenever she asked if they could go play. (Misunderstanding, there was a good meaning behind her neglect). Even when their parents died, elsa still couldn't come out her door to comfort anna. Then on Elsa's coronation, she lets her power go after she just yelled at her that she couldn't marry a dreamy man who was charming and seemed to have so much in common with her even though they just met. I mean, she has been guarded her whole life, so meeting a guy like Hans? It must be true love! (no! ) Her sister runs away and after all of that you know what Anna does? Goes off to try to find her and make things right. How can you argue with that loyalty?

Also, and this is a minor thing, but her relationship with kristoff was just so perfect. I love how they started off practically wanting to strangle each other but then he kinda grew in her and she kinda grew in him. In the end, they could've passed as friends and not love interests just because that's what they acted like. I'm pretty sure that that's important in a boy and girls relationship. You have to be able to be friends, right?

Overall, Anna is amazing and she may not be as beautiful in animation or as special with cool winter powers, but can everybody just forget about elsa and think about who really caused the resolution to the story? It was Anna. Optimistic, awkward, funny, loud, loyal Anna who was always overshadowed by her sister (even in the fandom... Ouch..). That just about covers it. She's perfect to me because she acts like me. She's weird and she's different from the ray if the princesses. Disney truly found their oddball heroine.

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 strong and optimistic in bad situations. She can also throw a killer right hook.

It is also unfair that people say she's a copy of Rapunzel with different hair. For looks: Rapunzels eyes are rounder, Anna's nose is smaller, Anna's lips are thinner, they have different eyebrow shape, and Anna has way more freckles. For personalities: Anna is more naive, personally I like to believe Anna is smart but Rapunzel seems focuses more on academic stuff, Rapunzel seems more obedient, and Rapunzel seems to think more about her actions, opposed to Anna who acts before she thinks in many scenarios.

I also hate when people dis her for the Hans incident. Think of things from her perspective, she was locked up for 13 years and unlike Elsa, all she wants is to meet people and be loved by somebody, since she failed to get that as a child. She also knows she only has a day before things go back to normal, and she doesn't know how long it will be until she's aloud out of the castle again. So basically, she has a day to find love, and if she doesn't she will be forever alone. So of coarse she would rush into something. Plus, there are many other princesses who did the same thing as Anna but don't get as much hate for it. Why? Because there relationships worked out. Take Cinderella for example, her and her Prince didn't even talk, he didn't know her name, and heck, he found her by her foot size, he didn't even bother to look for her based on her appearance. They danced for a couple hours, didn't talk, he couldn't recognize her by her face, and then they got married. And she gets less dis than Anna. Is that fair? Didn't think so.

I could go on forever, but this is already long, so I won't bore you (any more than I have). But please, respect Anna.

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. Just because she can't create ice, doesn't make wielding love and loyalty any less cool. Elsa locked Anna out, revealed her ice powers after yelling at Anna, ran away, and then what did Anna do? Go after her. I love Elsa, but what does she do in her ice castle with o furniture all day?
I love Elsa, but she over shadows her sister only because she has powers. Anna should get more recognition for her pure kindness and genuineness.

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.

Shes okay I guess

10Pocahontas

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 Indian and talking REALLY slowly.
Other factors that my adoration of Pocahontas are her moral strengths, belief in equality, compassion, and wise understanding, as well as her acceptance and willingness to educate others of her perception of the world. Racial representation provided asides, Pocahontas is an amazing role model and a strong woman with goals and outcomes that set to achieve overall happiness and positive life experience. Her happily ever wasn't inclusive to assimilating herself and leaving her homeland to be with John Smith in Virginia (despite Pocahontas II, but forget that ever happened). I enjoy Pocahontas's similar warrior spirit to Mulan, of whom I also favorite, who fought in a war, yet Pocahontas ended a budding conflict or war rooted in racism and human misunderstanding, which is important of a strong, passionate fighter: The ability to stop disputes and choose to not partake in violence or fight. Disney so repetitively carries the theme of actively pursuing your dream; yet, Pocahontas knew to give up her dream of romance and true love with John Smith because it was the right thing to do, and that's a tough life lesson.

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 league to the other princesses. I don't really know why I think this its just I feel her and the movie are so much more deep than the other Disney princess films.

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.

Pocahontas is the best princess so vote for her

The Contenders

11Aurora

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 other girls too.

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.

She is so beautiful! 😍

12Tiana

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.

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.

After years of insipid twats waiting around for magic and princes to save them, Walt Disney Pictures gives us a Disney Princess who's not only African American, but intelligent and hard-working. She even saves the frog prince in the end! Gasp!
How can anybody not like Tiana?

My best friends favourite

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 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 amazing. Sometimes I just tell myself what would Snow White do when I'm confused. She is so happy and kind. She also seems to enjoy herself. She has so many qualities that are ideal and I admire her character a lot. I think her character also gets quite a raw deal from some fans that thinks shes some dumb little girl that is shallow and likes cleaning. If they actually thought about her with an open mind they would realise how many amazing qualities she has and also please cut Snow White some slack I mean she was the first ever Disnye princess and deserves kudos for that but she also was a reflection of the time she was created in where women were expected to clean and cook for men. That was womens roles at that time and she was a great role model for women at that time and a lot of the things that she teaches us through songs are still very applicable now.

She deserves more love :) 😘

14Megara

'I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle. Have a nice day! '
She's so much more different than all the other princesses because she's independent and you gotta love her snarky attitude!

How the heck did Princess I-Have-The-Personality-Of-A-Hair-Dryer Aurora get a better rating than Megara!? She is one of the few Disney characters to have a character development. She is loyal to her boyfriend and stood up to Hades, a god!

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.

By far the biggest personality. She is amazing I love her.

15Esmeralda

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.

She stands up for what she believes in, has a super cool goat, smart, pretty, and fights racism. She is by far the best!

16Vanellope von Schweetz

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?

Jasmine is my favourite but I want Vanellope to be higher on the list.

She is awesome. Case closed. - CatCode

17Alice

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.

Alice is extremely adorable x)

Alice is the best ever

18Nala

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!

SHE IS THE BEST DISNEY FEMALE ANIMAL CHARACTER. VERY SWEET. ALSO SIMBAS WIFE.

Only one with fangs!

I hate Nala the ugly one

19Giselle

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.

Animated and in action!

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

20Jane

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
