The Top Ten

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

Belle is amazing. She stayed positive and didn't originally dream of a man. Yes, she fell in love, but only because she found someone who accepted her for who she was. She sacrificed herself for her Father, which I might add is actually braver than Mulan's sacrifice. Why? Because wars happen all the time. Mulan literally knew what was coming. She knew a lot about wars. But Belle? Belle had a Beast. And she's never seen one before. She doesn't know a thing about it. You don't see it everyday. But she still did it. That is way braver. She doesn't judge by looks, and doesn't immediately fall in love with someone due to how handsome they are. For the first time in Disney history, it was the Princess who saved the Prince, and who made it possible? Belle. But best of all, she doesn't care what other people think about her. She had it bad. A whole town of people mocking her and gossiping about her. Calling her strange and funny for reading. But she kept reading. She didn't care what other ...more - DisneyQueen

Belle may appear to be a feminist, so what? She is an empowering woman, great. Esmeralda is WAY 100 times better! Esmeralda out of all the leading ladies of Disney had it worse! She grew up on the streets and everyday faced social and racial discrimination. Yet she continued to fight for equality and stand up against injustice. Esmeralda is hands down the most selfless Disney leading lady, even though she suffers, she prays and sings for the less fortunate. Even a feminist like Belle still sits around singing about how she wants her life to get better. If her father haven't gotten lost she would still be sitting in that village living a provincial life. She is still a self-absorbed princess. Esmeralda is not a feminist, she is a humanist which is better. Esmeralda believes in equality for all! Esmeralda and Mulan are the two most empowered and heroic female characters! Give Esmeralda the attention she deserves and stop glorifying these privileged princesses!

I find Belle to be snobbish towards her small town neighbors. Belle walks around shrugging at her neighbors and singing about "provincial life" and "little people." The fact that Belle's neighbors don't have the luxury to be sitting around doesn't ever cross Belle's mind. Not once! So she reads? Big deal. So does Rapunzel and Ariel. She looks past appearances? Only after putting herself in a compromising place ( as the beast's prisoner) does Belle stop judging others. Belle claims she is in love with the beast, and then she is quick to give out the beast's location to Gaston ( her stalker) when she thinks her father is in trouble again... I'd choose Mulan or Ariel over Belle any day. - 976

2 Mulan - Mulan Mulan - Mulan Fa 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.

I hate that so many people think that Elsa is the strongest and the first feminist princess, it seems that they forgot or don't know Mulan.

Mulan may not be royalty, but so what, she's awesome!
She went in her father's place even though she knew that she was unfit to fight and that if they found out that she's a girl, they would kill her. She saved the male lead instead of the other way around. Even after they found out who she is and left her all by herself in the cold, she still wanted to warn them about the enemy even though her work was done, she could have easily just went home, but she didn't. She shows, like Tiana, that even if you are an independent strong women, it's ok to get married, it doesn't make you weak like many people think these days. When she was offered a high position, she turned it down and said that she just wants to see her family. She killed hundreds of people, she saved China with her brain and skills that she learning while training.

And ...more








Sorry for all caps but that's what I do when I need to make a point.

Um, she saved China.

She also is gorgeous (she doesn't even wear mugh makeup)

She saved her general

She taught people that it doesn't matter who or what position that you are in, that if you really try, you CAN.

She got a medal from the emperor. Tell me that isn't badass.

She saved her father knowing he was physically unstable to go to war, knowing that she was also, bit she trained and KICKED HUN'S ASS!

Mulan is definitely the best Disney Princess! She doesn't need a sparkly dress, white Caucasian skin, or super-blonde hair to look pretty! Plus, she saved all of China with her wits and combat skills in just a short period of time! - EveLeech

3 Rapunzel - Tangled Rapunzel - Tangled Rapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After. She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

I think Rapunzel is my second favourite Disney Princess, after Belle and Mulan.

Even though the Barbie version of Rapunzel was the first Rapunzel I've seen and it holds a special place in my heart because of that, but despot that, this Rapunzel is still my favourite version of the character. I read on a list that one girl who loves Ariel thinks that Rapunzel is a carbon copy of Ariel, she's not, she has her own personality. Sure she goes along with a guy she barely knows, but she's not running away, she just wants to explore the outside world. Plus she's the first Disney princess to walk around barefoot. Plus her and Flynn are seen as equals which is great. To those of you who think that Elsa and Anna (I still like Anna, just not as much as other people do) are the first feminist Disney princesses, you either forgot or haven't heard of Mulan, Tiana, and Rapunzel.

1. She's way more intelligent than Belle. Reading is just one of Rapunzel's skills, while the basis of the adoration of Belle's intelligence is basically based on her reading Jack and the Beanstalk.

2. She's got crazy diplomacy skills - she'd probably charm all of Corona's criminals and enemies. Sure, Mulan's a fantastic warrior, but there's also such a thing as a fantastic peacemaker. You lose a lot less people if you don't engage in war every time a country threatens you.

3. She's kind and selfless and would have the unwavering loyalty of her people. So when she grows up, whatever decision she makes is going to be done, little to no questions asked.

4. She's got guts. If a guy tries to assassinate her while she's alone, she can whack them over the head with a frying pan.

So adventurous, nice hair and pretty eyelashes. So loving her.

Rapunzel is best because, she is Beautiful, Charming, Extovert, Bookworm, Painter and she has a great collection of skills...

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

Tiana should go all the way to the top. She is my second favorite Disney Princess. Hard working and self dependent. She is perfect!

She's a natural. Self dependant, charming, hard working..

5 Snow White - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White is a fictional character from Disney's first ever film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves . She is Disney's first ever Disney Princess and is the only Disney Princess to have her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame .

Snow White is the best Disney Princess ever! When she sings, she can summon her animal friends, and she steals the hearts of all 7 dwarfs. She is also glamorous, and her singing voice is sensational. I love how the prince knew just what to do to wake her up, they are clearly soulmates! Snow White also has the prettiest dress out of them all, and can dance the best.

Snow White always will be is the best disney princess! Everyone thinks Belle is the best, but they're wrong. Who's knew she isn't beautiful. Never she can be the best princess, never. And her name too! Belle doesn't mean is beautiful, right? She's awful, not like Snow White. Oh, Love you so much Snowy!

Like you know, all princess must be pretty, lovely, kind, friendly and... gentle. And Snow White has all that things. Why she can't be in top 1? Why? Um, check again this list, please!

Snow White is too perfect to be in top 5. She's my favorite disney princess ever ever ever ever ever... I hate Belle!

6 Jasmine - Aladdin

Jasmine is the worst! While the people in her kingdom suffer and children go hungry, this privilege whiny brat sits in a palace complaining that her life is so bad! She is awful, hate her!

Jasmine is awesome she loved Aladdin even if he was a street boy. She is a so pretty nice and caring and she is brave.

I always love Jasmine because she likes Aladdin because of that is the person she fell in love with instead of marring that mean person. She is a very cute,pretty, princess. And I don't care what people think of her because I will always love her.

She should be number 3

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

Was not watching Disney movies until I watched frozen. Elsa's parents locked her up to protect her. But that only made her become afraid of herself. Making the situation worse. But she also learned how to build an ice castle. She has amazing powers. And loves her sister so much that she ran away to protect her. She is loving and caring and pretty

Elsa single-handedly brought me back to loving Disney again. In Frozen, she was the one that kept me hooked all the way to the end. Months later, I'm still not over her and Frozen. This had never happened to me before. She's easily one of the bests for me, along with Mulan.

The so-called empowering song "Let it Go" is basically Elsa running away from all of her responsibilities and problems, and disregarding the welfare of everybody she's left behind, including her sister. Just FYI.

Finally! Now I have some faith in humanity again. Ever since Frozen came out, I hated that so many people thought that she was the first independent, strong, and feminist Disney princess, she's not, she's not even strong mentally. It seems that people either don't know about the great classics or forgot about them.

Elsa runs away like a coward and only comes back when she's captured, she doesn't do anything remarkable like the others. Mulan could have went home when the army ditched her on a mountain, but she didn't, she went back to warn the army and when they didn't listen to her she came up with her own plan to save China, which see succeeded in, she didn't have any special powers, she just used her brain and skills. She also sacrificed herself in her dad's place. Tiana worked hard to make her dream come true. Rapunzel is so loveable that she made Flynn, the ruffians, and everybody else love her, plus the way she uses her hair. She also loves to read. Belle wanted something ...more

8 Cinderella - Cinderella

Cinderella deserves a better rank than this. She is hard working and kindhearted. She remained kind till the end. She didn't even talk back when her stepmother and step sisters mistreated her. Instead she was kind to them. She may not be my favorite Disney Princess, but she is truly an inspirational character.

She has insane emotional endurance as well as a taste for sarcasm

Yes, I agree! Cindy should be bad. Yeah.

I think Cinderella diserves to be first. She is really very innocent.

9 Aurora - Sleeping Beauty

She is beautiful. Just she didn't get much of a role. In her OWN MOVIE

Aurora should be the first that vote is wrong

She is so beautiful

Imaginative and lonely :(

10 Ariel - The Little Mermaid

Ariel will always be my favorite, and contrary to what people who clearly haven't seen the film in years think, she is a fantastic role model and Disney Princess. She tries to explain her curiosity and interest to her father but is constantly shut down by him and not ever given a chance to express herself, surviving a male dominated ocean she breaks the mold her sisters are happy to abide by, as Ariel goes out there and explores her passion. Ariel does not let herself be confined to her fathers prejudices which I think speaks volumes about her character and is very much relatable today. Also she doesn't throw everything away for a man, Eric was her extra push to finally going out there and achieving her dreams to be on land, also not forgetting Ariel is only 16 and during the films time period it was normal for girls younger than her to be married, Ariel wants to find to true love like all Disney Princesses and most women so don't think she should be condemned for doing so. Triton was ...more

I liked Ariel when I was a kid but that was only because she was pretty, but now that I'm an adult, I only like her in the beginning, she's the opposite of many of the great Disney princesses: she gives everything up for a guy who's name she doesn't even know, she's the reason her dad was turned into that thing Ursula turned him into, and I hate how greedy she is.

Ariel is determined and strong. She is extremely persistent and she never gives up. She is an incredible inspiration!

We all love how curious and determined she is, but doesn't it bother anyone how much she gave up for a guy she barely knows? - yuki-blue

The Contenders

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

People acted like Anna was the first quirky, silly Disney leading lady. She was not! People always forget about Jane from Tarzan, fine Jane is not a Disney princess but she is way better than Anna. I am not comparing them because Anna doesn't deserve to be put anywhere near Jane. Anna sucks, she is annoying and stupid. There is a reason people prefer Elsa, Anna I hate you!

Anna should be first because she looks so hilarious and not that much a princess. She loves Elsa and her friends!

Anna is cute and quirky, she is definitely the best!

12 Merida - Brave Merida - Brave Princess Merida is a fictional character from Pixar's first ever Disney Princess film, Brave. She is a talented archer who wishes that she were not destined to become the Elegant Queen of Dun Broch. She is forced into a marriage betrothal by her mother, with whom she has a very negative relationship. more.

Merida should be #3. Mulan should be in Merida's place!

13 Pocahontas - Pocahontas Pocahontas - Pocahontas Pocahontas is a title character in Disney's 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
14 Meg - Hercules

Love that she saved Hercules and then he saved her.

Megara is by far the best. She learns to both love and trust both in one movie. She teaches girls about insecurity, love, and to trust others along with your heart.

Not a princess, but she should be. Belle, Esmeralda, Meg, Mulan and Jane are the best leading ladies of Disney. 90's Disney woman are the best. Meg is an absolute delight and so funny..she rocks!

She is a princess though just not officially. She marries Hercules. Hercules is the son of Zeus. Zeus is the king of the gods. Hercules is the prince of the gods. - Disneylover

I adore her but she isn't a princess.

15 Moana - Moana Moana - Moana

Moana doesn't come out for over a year, though.

YES, YES! Moana saved the world after a millenia of decay! - EveLeech

16 Kida - Atlantis: The Lost Empire

She is very good natured, and beautiful, she deserves more recognition, and deserves to be on merchandise with the other princesses.

17 Star Butterfly - Star vs the Forces of Evil Star Butterfly - Star vs the Forces of Evil

She is so awesome great appeal to teens

She should be number one.


18 Jane - Tarzan

Before the stupid annoying Anna we had quirky, funny, intelligent, silly Jane. Jane rocks, she is an absolute joy. I love her, she is so funny and so cool. To me Anna is a poor knock off of Jane. Jane is #1 all the way!

19 Vanellope Von Schweetz - Wreck It Ralph

She isn't a princess, although I definitely wish she was. - yuki-blue


20 Violet - The Incredibles

Violet is so shy but sweet and beautiful! She is very brave as well.
