Top 10 Best “Official” Disney Princesses

The Wreck-it Ralph 2 trailer recently got released. Some people like it and some people hate it. People who didn’t get to go to the D23 panel last year finally got to see part of the scene with the Disney princesses. Trust me, the entire scene is hilarious. So I decided to make a list of the best “official” Disney princesses.

I know there’s already a list about the best Disney princesses, but that could mean that any princess from a Disney film or show can be added whether they’re included in the lineup or not. This list will only include characters that are actually in the Disney princess lineup. Which makes them “official” Disney princesses. Anna, Elsa, and Moana aren’t official Disney princesses. So they can’t be included.

The Top Ten

1 Snow White 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 .

She must be in the first place, because she's the very first one.


Snow White is the first ever Disney princess. Which is why she’s not that interesting of a character. That doesn’t mean she’s bad though. She’s just so adorable and has a very happy personality. I also found out that she’s 14 apparently. She doesn’t really look that young. I love how she’s actually willing to work hard. Even getting some help from her animal friends. Kind of weird that she can talk to animals. How does someone gain the skill to do that? She also treats the dwarfs like she’s their mother. I love the mother/son relationship between them. However, Snow White doesn’t get quite a lot of development. Also, I feel like she’s a little too nice. She was willing to eat an apple from a stranger. Why would anyone do that? Still, Snow White is an enjoyable character. - MegaSoulhero

2 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.

Dude, the Wreck it Ralph 2 trailer with the princesses looks absolutely hilarious. I love that they're taking a satirical and self-aware approach instead of them being there just as a marketing gimmick. I honestly hope they're in a good 10 minutes of the movie and not just a quick cameo. The potential for jokes is just too large. - phillysports

Really. You say official princess and the number 1 is the exact opposite. She's the daughter not a princess!

Yes, guys. I made a mistake. And that mistake was assuming people know how to do research. Mulan is in the Disney princess lineup! Look it up! - MegaSoulhero

I love mulan but she's not an actual princes! - Froglamb

3 Belle 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.

I went to the Hollywood Bowl a couple of weekends ago to see a Beauty and the Beast concert. While Zooey Deschanel was pretty good, she doesn’t compare to Paige O’Hara. Watching the entire animated movie during that concert with a live orchestra playing the background music really reminded me of why Belle is a great character. She isn’t like other girls. She stands out from everyone else in the village. She’s even the only one who wears blue. She also doesn’t care about looks. Gaston is a good looking dude but has a terrible personality. The Beast is a scary looking dude who later ended up having a great personality. Even when he transforms back into a human he somehow looks worse than he did as a Beast. But Belle didn’t care because that’s true love. Now that I said “true love” I can’t stop thinking about that emotional song from the Frozen Broadway Musical. - MegaSoulhero

4 Rapunzel 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.

I’m so excited for season 2 of the Tangled series. It is so great. Rapunzel has spent most of her life in a tower and got to experience what the outside world is like with the help of Eugene. Throughout her adventure, she manages to adapt very quickly. A little too quickly in fact. Even in the series, she kind of acts like a Mary Sue. Outside of that, they still make her a very likeable character. She is very skillful and really knows how to use her hair and is great with frying pans. She’s just an overall great character. I can’t wait to see what she does next. - MegaSoulhero

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

Second-hottest 15-year-old ever. - OomlaGuhmaGagh

Jasmine is hot. She’s definitely one of the hottest female Disney characters. Her looks aren’t the only thing that makes her a great Disney princess. She also has a great personality. She’s tired of living life as a princess and wants to explore what’s outside the palace. Kind of sounds like Ariel. The reason why it works here is because they actually show us how unhappy she is being in the palace. She also doesn’t do anything stupid to explore the outside world. Also, Ariel pretty much goes off to be with a prince anyway whereas Jasmine wants to get away from the royalty life. She wants to be a normal girl. That’s something we rarely see from Disney princesses. While she isn't the main character of the movie, she still gets a lot of development. She’s easily one of the greatest Disney princesses. - MegaSoulhero

6 Tiana 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.

She's a black, which I don't mind, but she shouldn't own a restaurant. - OomlaGuhmaGagh

She needs to be number 1 - Froglamb

I’m glad that she’s high on this list, not a lot of people talk about her it seems. I enjoy her hard working personality and kindness to those who she meets, especially to her family and friends. Her friendship with Charlotte is sweet and her relationship with her husband Naveen is cute

I kissed a frog and I liked it. This is one of the rare times in which the woman saved the man and not the other way around. Despite getting together with a prince at the end of the film, she’s shown to not need a man. She’s willing to work very hard to achieve her dreams. She’s also very tough in certain situations. Tiana was the last 2D animated princess Disney has created. I wish Princess and the Frog got more attention. It’s only been 9 years, but I already consider it a classic. Tiana is the best character in the movie. - MegaSoulhero

I think Tia has a terrible personality. But that's because I don't like her nitpicking behavior. - 976

7 Cinderella 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 a kind, loving, gentle princess who always tries to see the good in everyone. So let’s have her break a glass slipper like a bottle and use it to cut someone. Cinderella is such a nice character that I care about what happens to her in the movie. She lives with two evil stepsisters and an evil stepmother. Kind of a pretty bad life to be living. She has to put up with so much torment. Kind of like how Kelly Marie Tran had to deal with extremely mean Star Wars fans. Which caused her to leave social media. She’s such a nice lady. I don’t know why people felt the need to harass her. Anyway, Cinderella managed to accomplish her goal of going to the ball, meeting a prince, and living a happy life. She totally deserved it since she is such a kind girl with good morals. The live action version of her is also very kind hearted, but the problem is she’s TOO happy. The animated character at least gets upset when she needs to be. Which makes her a more relatable character. - MegaSoulhero

8 Merida 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.

Marisa is also one of the only Disney princesses that doesn't hook up with some guy at the end

Why do people hate Merida? She acts like a cranky teen at first, but she makes up for it. Despite not always agreeing with her mother’s decisions, she still very much loves her. She even tries to protect her after she turned into a bear. Merida is better than people give her credit for. She’s very adventurous and she’s not afraid of anything. Her skills provide for some excellent action scenes that are just so entertaining to watch. Her archery skills are top notch. Her sword fighting skills aren’t bad either. Also, her hair is amazing. And yes, she is an official Disney princess even though she’s from Pixar. Speaking of Pixar, I’ve been hearing really good things about Incredibles 2. - MegaSoulhero

9 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.

Did somebody smear her face in that picture? - OomlaGuhmaGagh

Pocahontas is pretty cool. I’ll admit that. The movie she’s in, however, is kind of boring. She made the movie “slightly” more interesting since she knows quite a lot about nature. She can even talk to trees. Somehow. Of all the Disney princesses, she has the best singing voice. The songs she sings are so powerful because of her voice. She’s very adventurous and very brave. She even ends up saving John Smith. Unfortunately, she doesn’t really have a lot of memorable moments. Not even any memorable lines of dialogue. Which is a shame because she could’ve been such a great character. By the way, I do not like the way she looks in Wreck-it Ralph 2. Also, I found it weird that we actually see her hair flowing in THE WIND! Or in this case, THE LACK OF WIND! - MegaSoulhero

10 Aurora 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.

She's doing what women should do: nothing.

#Trump2020 #covfefe - OomlaGuhmaGagh

Despite considering her the second worst Disney princess, I don’t actually hate her. She’s a lovely character with a beautiful singing voice and a very kind attitude. The problem is we don’t see her a lot in the movie. We don’t get to know a lot about her. I feel like she will have more screen time in Wreck-it Ralph 2 than she does here. When people discuss Disney princesses, she’s rarely ever brought up. She’s so forgettable. She’s the princess with practically no personality. Then again, it’s better than having a straight up terrible personality like Ariel. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 Moana 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.

She is amazing


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

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

The Little Mermaid

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

Anna needs to be higher!
