Top 10 Favorite Disney Princesses

The Top Ten
1 Belle Belle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991) and in the live action remake Beauty and the Beast (2017). Belle is the intelligent and selfless young daughter of an inventor who does not conform to the normal ways of her small more.

Um how is she number 1! Everybody says she is so brave and that she doesn't need saving, but first the Beast had to save her from the wolves, then chip had to save her. Belle is constantly being saved, that's what I call a damsel in distress. Also she spends her life reading love stories, that's kinda sad. I understand why she thinks her town is so provincial but she doesn't need to sing a song about it. Also do you remember the promise Belle made to the beast, well she broke it. Unlike Rapunzel she clearly doesn't keep her word. Also did I mention why she broke her promise, she broke it because the Beast yelled at her. She ran away like a baby from him. that's just sad Belle. I like the idea of Disney trying to make a smart, kind, brave, young women out of Belle, but it didn't really work out.

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.

I think Belle is an awesome princess, really smart, kind, and caring, and definitely one of my favorites, but she I have to disagree with the first person, Belle is odd, the first song in the movie is basically the village singing about how weird she is. She is kind of dreamy, too, her head is always 'stuck up on some cloud' and she says she wants adventure in the great wide wonder or something like that. Also Mulan doesn't want to change her gender, she just wants to protect her father because she knows he'll die if he goes to war, and in doing so she has to pretend to be a male.

Yes, she needed saving once, but she also did the saving twice. She's naturally pretty, she's elegant and feminine, but she's smart and strong. She doesn't fall for Gaston's charm, and yet she turns him down nicely. She needed rescuing from the wolves, but she put up a good fight while it lasted.

2 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.

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, ...more

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 for family, ...more

Mulan is my favorite - brave, smart, and loyal
- and I agree with the others' flaws that the second person wrote. Cinderella was too passive, but she did work hard. Sleeping Beauty was really bland, I read somewhere that she only had 18 lines of dialogue in the movie. Ariel is naive, too. And most of the other Disney princesses were princesses because they married into a royal family, becoming princesses, so Mulan is actually probably one of the only non-princesses seeing as Shang isn't royal. Still though Mulan is awesome.

3 Rapunzel 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.

Despite being gaslighted and manipulated her whole life, she has the mental strength to break free. It's a story that (although the magic flower's power might have some caveats) makes sense at least from the perspective of a mind. Rapunzel takes all her information from Gothel until on outside force reveals to her that the outside world is not a nightmare. She is a well-rounded character and it clearly showed her mental struggle and feels real.

Rapunzel is the most amazing disney princess ever!She didn't really wish to get out of the tower all she wanted was to see the floating lanterns and that was because she cared about her not so real mother that shows and act of selflessness ,caring about other's wish before your own rapunzel is troughly an exceptional princess she promised she'd live with gothel if she had the chance to save her true love from well..death Rapunzel is a princess who is warrior for the greater good and is also a sweet caring loving princess who will always be their and give support to her kingdom Rapunzel also teaches little girls and boys that no one needs somoeno to complete them just someone who understands them completely.

She and Belle rock! They are both smart and sweet. I find Rapunzal to be spunky, adventurous, and downright gorgeous! Her story is far more interesting than Cinderella's and Snow White's, and, she, ahem, has a PERSONALITY! Also, one of her main goals in life is NOT to find true love, it's to find adventure! That's awesome! And she happens to find love with a thief? I'm down. Rapunzal is amazing in every way!

Rapunzel is the best princess. Not because of her long hair or of the popular story before the movie, but because she is a smart and beautiful (on the inside as well as the outside) girl who was intelligent enough to figure out that she was the lost princess. She was also sweet to anyone she met, even when she was also scared. Like all of us she had a dream, and she fulfilled it. She also found her first love along the way. The personality of not being bratty to her "mother" but logical also makes her the best princess. And also, I think that in one way or another, all of us can relate to Rapunzel. Not asking your mother a question that you've been wondering about forever. Wanting to go past your limit. Finding your first love, having an awesome birthday, and then your mom's just like lets go I don't like this guy. I think I'm done here, but just so you know, none of us will ever forget the girl that lived her dream.

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

Ariel sucks! Did you know that red hair means very unlucky? I hate Ariel as much as all the other classic princesses, let me give you a list.
Snow White: Stupid enough to open the door to a stranger and gets poisoned by eating what the stranger gave her. I thought all our parents taught us not to open the door to a stranger about... what is it... three? And what about eating unknown food? Don't get me started on that!
Aurora: Let's see, she is damn ugly, and don't start defending her, let me remind you that you say she is pretty because the nosy fairies cast some spell to make her pretty. And even with the spells on she is still ugly, I can't even imagine her without the spells on!
Finally, your beloved Ariel. First of all, she betrayed her father by going to see Ursula. Unlike some other princesses who risked their LIFES for their father. Belle, who go and live with a BEAST for her father. Mulan, who risk her life for her father by pretending to be a boy and fighting the ...more

I'm about to end the Ariel haters' whole career. So you see, Ariel didn't want to be on land all because of Eric, she wanted to be on land because she was curious about it. In the first place, Ariel did fall in love with Eric because of how he was handsome. Before I get to the rest of that, we need to talk about the "signing the contract" part. I can just slap Ariel haters in the face for that. First of all, what kind of language is half of the contract. Second of all, Ariel would do anything for her dreams. Like in the song, "what would a pay to spend a day warm on the sand?" Okay, back to the relationship with Erik part. As Ariel and Erik's relationship developed more in the movie, Ariel realized that Erik is a loyal, kind, and brave guy. When Ursula gave Ariel those three days, Ariel didn't spend them by begging Erik to marry her right away, she was taking some time and knowing him more. And Ariel is probably the Disney princess with the most character development. She's curious, ...more

Ariel's always been my favorite Disney princess.

Note: I don't know why people accuse Ariel for abandoning her father and sisters for her true love. That isn't true. First of all, she didn't fall in love with Eric (After all, she's only 16.) She just had a child-ish crush on him. Everyone does.

Second of all, after she sees Eric for the first time, she goes to her secret cavern, which is filled to the brim with human objects, which means she had already been collecting the items for years. Eric wasn't the only reason why she wanted to go on land. She already had the desire to be a human, but she was just unsure of herself and scared to tell her father. But Eric gave her that final push she needed, and then she did it.

Yes, she did kind of help Ursula in getting King Triton's magic triton, but in the end, she saved everyone and made up for her mistakes. Everyone has a dream or goal in life, and her dream was to be a human, and she didn't let anyone (or anything) ...more

If anyone doesn't like Ariel, then they are crazy. Literally. Ariel is one of the best Disney princesses and she is super strong, brave, and kind.

5 Jasmine She is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 31st animated feature film Aladdin (1992).

Jasmine is my favourite. She is kind(anyone remembers the beginning scene where she gives an apple to a hungry child)funny, feisty and fearless. She constantly uses her head to solve her problems. The animated Jasmine was fine, but the live action Jasmine wowed me. She is also very selfless and agreed to marry Jafar to save her father. She is the first disney princess who wasn't interested in love or marriage. She even questions her father on how a foreign prince who knows nothing about Agrabah can make a better sultan than herself. Speaking of father, she has a really special relationship with him. Jasmine is also forgiving. She forgave Aladdin who had been lying to her the whole time. Jasmine doesn't sit and wait for someone to rescue her like Rapunzel waited for Eugene.
Physical beauty
Jasmine and Belle are one of the most beautiful princesses. Only after watching her I gained more confidence on my beauty. Like Jasmine I too have long black hair and warm brown skin. I also ...more

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.

Jasmine is a charming character from Disney that is made with in the way that the character eludes the others which are not the point of interest. It is a very different one from the rest of the princesses and one may not know why or perhaps pretend it is just a play of taste. Might be remaining an enigma, Jasmine continues to marvel the target audience with kindness and a rare one at that. Disney sure brought out some of the best for this kind, which might appear close to Snow White and at times comprehensive similarities between Jasmine and Snow White. Beautiful at face value, however there is a magic with personality and traits that are real openers. Amazed by the amount of riches display in the desert (huge yet not empty) might sight also. Normally the desert is a barren empty place in this imagination so to see that does change matters of vision and perception in a vastly good way. A treat and surprise well founded the rest of the story can be wound up and spun in much of ...more

Actually Jasmine is the most beautiful Disney princess.. The reason why Belle is beautiful because of her damn yellow dress.. Belle was not beautiful at all she is just kind of appealing (sorry for my grammar I'm not really an English guy).. And by the way even Jasmine has a brown skin she is more beautiful than Belle Let's say...

Dress is to Belle and..
Physical appearance is to Jasmine were talking about the appearance not about their outfit so Jasmine is the best and most beautiful of the Disney princess.. Jasmine Rules! And oh yea.. Belle is my childhood favorite and when I watched both of their movies I observed them and I found out Jasmine is more beautiful than her..

6 Cinderella Princess Cinderella is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 12th animated feature film Cinderella and its sequels Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.

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 say Cinderella does not aid her own rescue. Well, she does more than her prince. When she is locked in her room unable to go try on the slipper, her mice pals try to retrieve the key. However, Lucifer steals the key back. Cinderella saves herself by forming a plan. She sends the birds to fetch Bruno the dog, knowing that Bruno can chase Lucifer away so that the mice can get the key. Without her clever thinking she would have never gotten free. She did more to save herself than her stupid prince. What did he do? Make his butler try shoes on people. Some hero! Cinderella rescued herself with innovation and quick thinking. Plus, Cindy is kind, sweet and pure. She is creative confident and funny. And super pretty.

Cinderella will always be my favorite princess, not because she has a beautiful outfit (dress, glass slippers) and has a great love story. Truth is, none of those things matter. Many people don't like the Cinderella fairytale because they think she's just a helpless girl waiting for a man to save her and that's a bad example for girls of this generation. But I've always believed that she teaches one to be patient. Not everything you want will come to you right away and you don't have to break the rules to get what you want. Sometimes it just takes patience and courage. No matter how hard your problems may be, just do the things that you have to do today and take it one step at a time. And if you're grieving or if someone hurts you remember to still be kind. That's what Cinderella has always taught me.

Cinderella is the most lovely princess in the entire Disney Kingdom. Her voice is very soothing. She can befriend almost everyone she meets. Cinderella has the best personality. She was forced to be a servant and maid in her own house, but she still kept that loving and caring feature inside and continued to be loving, even though she lived in a house with wicked people. She still continued to treat them well, since she is loving. She also has a sense of humor. Cinderella was able to hope and believe for what she wants, and in the end, she got what she wanted: a handsome prince to marry her.

7 Tiana 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's the most practical, mature, resilient, resourceful, ingenious, ambitious, humble, loving heroine who's influential. So, it's mind-blowing how folks It's obvious anti-black racism, misogynoir, colorism & so forth —based off reactions/feedback I observed on a few of the other top 10 list such as the top beautiful, Hottest & so forth). Most explicitly stated that they didn't rate because how "black" she is, and/or as another user claimed that she's a "angry Black woman", "ugly" just because she's not the ideal beauty, which is fair-skin or light brown like Jasmine & Pocahontas with very long, flowing & bouncy hair type 1/2, & lacks Eurocentric features. Granted, Disney missed the mark by failing to depict Tiana with a big beautiful kinky TIGHT COILS/.CORKSCREWS and/or braids. Her hair is just bland, & Tiana just seems like a plain Jane, which make sense since she's poor. & although she's not ugly as a frog, she spends most of the movie as a freaking frog! There just so many ...more

To all of those racist people out there... Tiana is the only black disney princess and do you want to know why? That is because the people who created disney princesses (clears throat- Walt Disney to be exact) wanted white princesses because of their "beauty". None of that is true. So think twice about being racist toward black people.

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.

Tiana is so low?! Awhhh, she is definitely one of the top princesses ever in Disney, she is SOOO good.
Anyways firstly, she is the only princess to actually have an interest in a career, she works so hard to achieve her dreams and her dad inspired her to strive for her goals and stop at nothing until she gets to it, I love an ambitious and a princess who never gives up! Also she acts MUCH MORE realistically compared to the other princesses, she's not lovey dovey and super kind all the time, she does have a bit of a 'tude, which I do like about her! As well as that she's one of the few princesses who ACTUALLY DEFEATED THE VILLAIN, she's independent, strong, and super ambitious who always strives for her goals, I can't believe she's all the way down in 8th... :(

8 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.

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

She should be higher! My favorite Disney Princess of ALL TIME! I just like her she has everything: she is elegant, beautiful, has a beautiful voice...She has a fun side but she can be understanding and mature when she needs to be. She is also wise and I like wise characters. Honestly one of the reasons I love her so much is that Pocahontas is my favorite Disney movie of all time! Or The Little Mermaid I'm still not sure. I can't get why people dislike her movie, sure it's not accurate but can't you just forget about accuracy and enjoy the damn movie! It has the most beautiful ending of all time and the songs are just so meaningful an full of passion. The movie is also great to like at, it is like a color palette. Enough talking about the movie, as I said Pocahontas has everything. She is also the only Disney princess to not have a happy ending but I think that it is better this way. Normally I always prefer happy endings but I think that this ending fits her character and story ...more

Pocahontas is a very important person in history. The movie was probably a bit too complicated for young kids so I don't think they enjoyed it much, but knowing the history of such an inspiring and brave girl, you might find yourself respecting her a bit more. The movie was able to highlight the importance of protecting the earth and the many important creatures and respecting them. It also demonstrated an understanding of equal human rights and relationships. She was a brave young woman and wouldn't let anything stop her from doing what she believed in, what she knew was right. She persevered and helped change history. At first she wasn't respected much by the English, but we now can see how talented she is and how important a woman can be to our society.

Pocahontas' "Color of the Wind" is all about preserving nature and the world before it becomes destroyed. Watched it and felt like getting off my computer and going outside to explore and enjoy the Earth. Hits close to home every time I watch it--it's a beautiful song with a beautiful meaning. Pocahontas and Mulan really have something to fight for, something they care about. All the others fight for their love, and Elsa and Anna are fighting... to work together again? Anyway, to conclude I really do think Pocahontas should definitely be higher. And even if you don't agree, go watch Colors of the Wind and at least you'll be happy for the rest of the day!

9 Snow White 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 .

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.

She's literally 14 in the movie, her step-mother reached her to a maid, she lost her father, and she's still the sweetest, loveliest person ever. Also, that beautiful voice. She's kind, generous and grateful; she develops a lovely friendship with the dwarfs. About being naive, come on! She was raised in the palace, away from strangers and was literally brought up the way princesses are: raised to be kind and gentle, and trusting. HOW can you blame her? I honestly find her quite courageous; her own step-mother asked for her to be killed, she nearly was killed, she escaped into a forest all on her own. She survived all that and tried to start again, hiding from the evil queen, too. All while never forgetting who she is, and being kind, sweet and pure as ever. Give her a break; she's horribly underrated! I think she's absolutely wonderful, and the purest person ever. There's good reason why she'll always be the icon she is.

Snow White is and forever will be the First Disney Princess. That alone makes her individually special. Along with that, she is very caring and fair and kind. She is very innocent and even a bit naive at times, but she can take charge and even be a little bossy when she needs to be. She even teaches little kids the importance of washing up. Snow White is also selfless, and teaches little kids about having a servant's heart, which is certainly an important trait to have, as it makes you a very special and kind individual. It is also seen that Snow White is a princess with a sense of humor and she is also very neat, making sure to clean up after herself. Snow White is truly the fairest in the land.

Snow White has always and will always be my favorite Disney princess. It's so refreshing to see someone so pure, innocent, sweet, selfless and determined these days. She can dance, she can sing, she can make the best out of anything and anyone, and never gives up hope, even in the simplest tasks. I do understand why some people don't like her, but she is so underrated even though she's the first ever Disney princess. She is one of my better role models, who didn't go looking for a prince to save her, but found her own happiness after her stepmother hired someone to kill her after years in rags and servitude. The fact she can smile still is wonderful.

10 Aurora Aurora is a fictional character from the popular Disney Film, Sleeping Beauty and the 2015 Live Action Release, Maleficent. She is commonly known as Sleeping Beauty and is one of the group Disney Princesses. She is a unique Disney Princess as in her film, Sleeping Beauty, she has a total of 18 minutes more.

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.

Aurora has been my favorite forever! She is kind, sweet, respectable, and also loyal to her aunts. Anyone else notice she wanted her aunts to stop treating her like a child, but was too polite to say anything about it? Not only that, but it think she's absolutely beautiful, with a wonderful singing voice. You can tell she's a wonderful person, people keep saying she will be beloved by all who know her in the beginning, not to mention the fairies were in tears when they had to give her up. I also love Philip, they are such a cute couple. He would die to save her. True love without a doubt, both ways. The entire movie is just so magical and romantic, it holds a special place in my heart. Basically, Aurora is a wonderful girl, and I think deserves move love.

I don't really care who is the better role model or who promotes feminism and equality more. When I was the kid, I looked at Disney princesses for beauty, grace and a great singing voice. That's the trope that all of them had in common, and for me, Aurora was the prettiest and had the best singing voice. Her hair is also amazing! I really liked her plot line too, for example I loved the fairy godmothers and the cake scene. She's just very iconic and Once Upon A Dream like sums up what a Disney princess song should be. I find some of the modern princesses cartoon faces annoying and boring and this whole "I'm so different from what a princess is expected to be. I'm stubborn, clumsy and fighting for my rights" really isn't original anymore.

Not only is Princess Aurora the most iconically beautiful Disney princess of the whole slew, but she's also iconically beautiful in her spirit as well. When told she's a princess she melts down partially because she believes that a chance at love with Philip is so much greater in worth than all the gold, crowns and finery that is offered as a princess. Not only that but she further finds love in her heart rather than disdain when she meets her parents for the first time after sixteen years of their absence. She's also named after the sun and we all love the sun so let's all love Aurora too.

The Contenders
11 Merida 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.

It's reallly frustrating that merida get so mich hate because what she did to her mother. Ok she was a spoiled brat but later on changed! Like in terms of character development she is the best. People say the braviest princess is Jasmine. Yeah I love Jasmine she surely is indeppendent but not the most. Mulan maybe the the braviest all and Merida is close too. And I really don't understand all the hate she gets because I think that Ariel do almost the same thing. But no you will never see a sane person hate on Ariel. I am sorry for my language but this was bothering me for days. And come on! They looks similar too! How can you say Merida is ugly?! She doesn't care about her looks and her hair is a bit messy but she's not ugly at all.

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

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 the first disney princess to have no prince! She is really strong, independent and BRAVE of course! And I love her archery skills. She should be in the top 5. I like how she is not like the other princesses, how she chooses not to act like a princess and not to get married and just stick with what she likes. She is so brave because she tried to change her mother and there comes a problem. She fixed the problem by trying to stop her dad. She always use all her bravery and saves the day. She cares about her and she cares about her family. Merida absolutely does not need a prince. With her all her bravery with her she is safe without a prince!

12 Moana Moana is the protagonist of Disney's 2016 animated feature film of the same name. Born on the island village of Motunui, Moana is the daughter of Chief Tui and Sina, with an inherited love for the seas and voyaging. When her island becomes endangered, Moana is chosen by the ocean to journey across the more.

Moana, on top of the fact that she's beautiful, is really interesting despite some of the typical Disney cliches that the company's know for. She has good intentions, she loves her home and family, she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty, and she is very, very determined on her quest to discover not just what's truly beyond her reef, but to figure out what's truly inside her, what she likes, and who is as a person. From her design and her home, to her personality and determination, moana has my vote for the best Disney princess. I even think she's better than Elsa and Tiana, which is saying something because I love those 2.

Moana has a great personality: she is always determined. She cares for her family and loves them with all her heart. She isn't scared to get her hands dirty and her dream is completely different from all the other Disney princesses. All she wants to do is sail. The ocean is her friend and she knows when she's wrong. She is so brave that she will actually risk her life to save those of her family, friends and all the other people on her island, along with the animals. No other princess would do that, believe me! Moana deserves this!

Moana is definitely the best princess. Even she isn't a princess (She's the village chief's daughter, close enough! ) she doesn't act like one and she's the first Hawaiian princess! She 's supposed to be a mixture of Pocahontas and Merida but I find she's mostly like Mulan and Belle too. The water animation in the movie was amazing and the designs on her shirt and skirt are so nice and unique! Her pet pig is so cute too! I find the rooster a bit stupid though...

WHY Isn't Moana first on this list! She's (in my opinion) one of the most beautiful princesses, in looks and personality. Her personality seems much more real and fleshed out then other disney princesses, and I think I can relate to her more than I can to the others who are topping this list. Moana is determined, brave, and doesn't rely on others to do things for her. She's also caring for her family, and her pets? friends? What is Hei Hei and Pua to her lol. She knows what is right and wrong, and will always try to do the right thing. She has a fiery personality and will stand up for what she believes in. And to top it all off, she has probably the most powerful singing voice out of all the disney princesses, I'd argue even more than Tiana. And I love Hei Hei and Pua
