This article is similar to MaidofOrleans' article but it has a unique twist. I started writing mine a few days before she posted hers. So don't worry I'm not stealing her idea or anything. Plus she knows it's different from hers. We talked about it in her article's comment section.

Different perspectives - my past memories, my mum's memories, memories involving a friend, other fandom perspective and recent points of view.

Feel free to use my idea to make your own version if it inspires you. Just make sure you credit me please for the original idea.


Snow White

I was so excited when I saw a sequel of Disney’s Snow White out on VHS. Nevermind that the main character looked different, wore a different dress, had a different voice and the animation seemed more 80’s. The dwarves sisters helped guide Snow White to the villain’s castle so she could save her prince from a male villain who turned his enemies into stone. It was great and I enjoyed it more than the original. Ah youth. The ability to watch something and let everything else go over your head. Except I did come to my senses on my second viewing years after as a young adult. I disliked it and thought it was childish. I tracked down the original and thought Disney’s Snow White was superior to it.


Cinderella

When my mum and her cousin (also my aunt because the family from my mum’s side are tight knit) were younger. They went to see Cinderella at the cinema. My aunt was so excited to see what Cinderella’s ball gown looked like. But when watching the iconic moment, she leaned over to my mum and said “it’s ugly.” My mum agreed. Mum says she was so disappointed. She thought it was dull, not pretty. My aunt wanted to see something different from current fashion. More fantasy-like and colourful. She wanted a pink ball gown. And after all of these years, her opinion hasn’t changed. She hates it with passion.


Aurora

“Sorry I don’t know who she is”- my life long friend.
“Oh I don’t know her” - my best friend.
“That’s not Sleeping Beauty! Sleeping Beauty has brown hair” - my mum.
...and then she said;
“No! No, you’re kidding aren’t you? This is a joke.”
Then I go into Disney geek mode express what her real name is and explain why she is blonde.
....then mum frowns and says;
“Oh. Well in the original story she had brown hair. What was that you said? (I got tongue tied on saying Aurora) Say it again. (I tried again) Spell it. (Tries to say it herself twice in two different ways - equally difficult). I’m unsure how to pronounce it. Maybe you could research online on how to pronounce it.”
To which I said or rambled;
“Or we could just call her Briar Rose. It’s easier and I can pronounce it. Of course I’ll always use Aurora online because it’s pretty and I’m using it when I writing about something, not saying out loud for all to hear. But yeah I could look into it, if you want me too?”
She said; “yes, it would be interesting to find out.”
....that was more than a few years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday. But my mum has no memory of it. Just as well, because I forgot to do the research!

Ariel

Rewatching the movie as a mature adult, I’m ashamed to say it does seem like Ariel sold her voice and got legs for a man. Thankfully I’m still very loyal to the TV series and know that Ariel has more depth than what is displayed in the movie. Oh how I wish they would release the TV series on DVD (all regions). I miss it so much!


Belle

Don’t you just hate it when Hollywood portrays intelligent people with thick educated sounding voices? They sound like Vulcans from Star Trek. Even animated characters. From my teens to my young adulthood I disliked Belle’s voice for that very reason. In the last two years, I realised Belle’s voice was that way because the voice actress was told to put on a French accent.


Jasmine

Who goes to Disneyland Paris just to buy dolls that you can’t find in the local Disney stores? Me. I’ve done it twice. Once in 1999 and another time in 2014. In early 1999 I wanted Jasmine in her purple dress. The local Disney store seemed to have Aladdin and Genie stuff but only one or two things of Jasmine. The doll wasn’t special enough. It was just plain and boring and I thought it didn’t look like Jasmine. I remember discussing it with my mum in the car. How although the doll in the store was clearly made by Disney, face wise it looked like a Mattel version. I don’t know what I was talking about.I was in my own little world. Anyway, at Disneyland Paris, I bought two Jasmine dolls and an Aladdin one. The Paris dolls looked more special. Jasmine’s regular outfit looked gorgeous with the gold spots decorating the bedlah pants. I got a double pack of Aladdin and Jasmine in their end of movie clothes. I remember looking in several shops around the park but couldn’t find Jasmine in her purple dress anywhere. I was disappointed but I was very happy with the ones I found. So that trip was successful. 2014 trip, I went back hoping the purple dress doll would be in stock. But I forgot a very important detail, the new makeovers. I was so disappointed but I also wasn’t surprised. In every store in the park, Tiana, Rapunzel and Ariel seemed to have the biggest space for merchandise. Followed Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White and Belle. Merida and Jasmine had a very small section. Pocahontas and Mulan didn’t have a section at all. Nah, clearly the new makeovers took over the merchandise, Wiping out the old merchandise of the Renaissance era. Who knows maybe they ran out of stock completely on the year or a few years after 1999?


Pocahontas

Two days after watching the movie for the first time, I bought another film about Pocahontas. It was live action and for some reason, I thought it was a live action version of the Disney version. The film was closer to her historic life than the fiction that Disney created. I remember learning about Pocahontas in school, thinking oh my god she was a real person?! And then thinking hmmm nah, I prefer the disney version. Now as an adult, I still don’t care much for the history. I like Disney’s Pocahontas on her own meaning her personality and spirituality. But I’m not loyal to the movie anymore. I tried to watch it as an adult after about ten or more years since I watched it last. It bored me. I ended up turning it off and giving it away to a friend to keep.

Mulan

I didn't know who Mulan was before watching the movie and the special features on the DVD. I remember being in awe, thinking wow, she was a real person! Later several years on I realised my mistake. Folklore person who may have been real but might not have been.


Tiana

I had a "Tiana moment" whilst looking at rankings for Favourite Winx Transformations last night. Enchantix is more often than not, no.1 on each list. But I was looking at the group picture thinking I used think they were the best. But Layla/Aisha has the worst outfit, it looked gorgeous in blue. Like Tiana does in her second party dress. Why did they change?! Layla/Aisha looks better in blue than she does in green. However out of the two, Tiana can pull off wearing green, better than Layla/Aisha can.


Rapunzel

Mum watched Tangled with me, a few years ago. She didn't like Rapunzel during the first half. Mum found her annoying, whiny and childish. During the second half, Mum liked her more. She thought she was mature and less whiny. I just sat back in silence let my mum form her own opinion. I remember agreeing with her during the first part. It was a time when I hadn't made up my mind about how I felt about Rapunzel. I liked her but I didn't love her. Her popularity annoyed me and in general I wasn't a Modern era Princess follower.


Merida

I've watched Brave four times. Each time, Merida has been my favourite character. But whilst I love her. I can’t help but think she doesn’t belong in official DP franchise. The movie doesn’t feel like a Disney movie. It feels like one of the better animated movies like Anastasia for example from another company. It’s a pity she couldn’t be a popular standalone princess like Anna and Moana. Because that’s where she belongs I think. Alternatively, this is not going to happen but we can fantasise; make a franchise for heroine warriors, include Kida, Jane, Nala and anyone else who fits.

I've been wanted to do this article for a while, but I've just been procrastinating a bunch lately. I really do think that all of the Disney Princesses have great voices, so this list was very hard to come up with! Note: I'm sorry if these descriptions are really short, but it's kinda hard describing voices.

10. Ariel

It seems that you either have her high on your list, or low, and for me, it's low. She's got a great voice, but I do agree that she does sound nasally when she sings. Her voice just doesn't have that mystical, mysterious sound that I feel mermaids should have.

9. Belle

Hey guys! So I’ve been here since the beginning of summer, and I figured it was time to make one of these since I’ve seen so many of my new friends make them, too! I haven’t really opened up to anyone about who I am and what I like, so I thought this would be a good place to start! :)

My name is Brooke and I’m 18 years old. I live in southern Delaware with my parents, my two older sisters, and my younger brother. However, I’m going to be moving to college in a couple days, so that’s going to change soon!

Princess Aurora, gold of sunshine in her hair, lips that shame the red, red rose, and a personality that shames us all.

Now Aurora is not completely bad. She's got a nice voice, she's pretty, everyone remembers her song, "Once Upon a Dream," and of course, the iconic scene of her sleeping in bed (don't get the wrong idea). But man!!! This chick is as bland as I don't know what!!

As far as Disney Princesses go, Aurora is probably the least popular of them and it's kinda plain to see why.

Let's look at it for a minute.

Hi! Here is another article for Belle, I wrote this because I want to be clear in my opinion for her! Belle is my favorite Disney Princess and I really love her! You wanna know why? Read the following qualities that made her my favorite...

1. Looks
I always put looks for the princesses, because I believe that a person's outside look affects much on impressions. So, not being biased but she is my prettiest Disney Princess. Some people said she is plain, that she is only pretty in few shots, well I disagree. Belle is gorgeous! Her hazel eyes are so tantalizing, her hair is brilliant, her nose is...

I held a countdown if who would Snow White liked the most, and to e honest, the results were not suprising at all. Here are the results and what people had to say. This countdown was held before Merida was official, so she is not on here.

9. Jasmine

This was definitely the most obvious choice for Snow White's least favourite princess. They are opposite in almost every single way; Snow is innocent, Jasmine is not. Snow is calm and reserved, while jasmine is loud and aggressive. Snow White would not like or understand Jasmine's harsh and flirty behaviour, while Jasmine would be annoyed by...

I feel like people are going to disagree with me but it's my personal favorites, it's really a matter of which voice I love more.

My list for the Princes
10. Charming
9. Naveen
8. Beast
7. Phillip
6. John Smith
5. Eric (He doesn't sing but I like his voice)
4. Flynn
3. Aladdin
2. Prince

10. Snow White
Her speaking voice is cute but there are times when I cannot stand her singing voice.






9. Belle
I absolutely love her speaking voice but her singing isn't as impressive. But that's just in comparison to the other princesses.






8. Cinderella
It sounds like an angel's singing. It's so gentle and...

I have returned after pretty much spending Christmas break w/ family (mostly my sister) and am in such a good mood due to non-Disney related epicness, Nostalgia Critic finishing Disneycember, and my shows returning while my favorite one comes to the finale.

But enough excuses. I also took time off to carefully go over the subject for this article because of very good reason. What's the reason?

I LOVE DISNEY SIDEKICKS!

Yes, the side characters are what make the movies for me in the Disney pics because I remember mostly their moments because they're awesome. To me, the sidekicks are the funny characters...

(cuing Heather O'Rourke from Poltergeist) I'm baaaaack!

Yes, I have returned after taking some much needed breaks and planning out more articles. I was kinda winging and only gonna do princess evaluations like I've been doing, but then I thought of other stuff in a DP movie. So, I've finally come up w/ 10 official categories.

This one, will be the last in solo princess evaluation. Meaning this is the last time I'll focus on just the princesses. The next parts are aspects of the DP movies, but not the princesses themselves.

Does that sound smart? Good, 'cause this is...

Smartest Princesses

Okay I wrote this earlier today but i accidentally deleted it when i was finished. :(
So i wrote it again, sorry if it is short && choppy.

This is based on their looks. my Favorite list is a bit different.

10.)Jasmine

I know most of you disagree. I think she is pretty but i really dont like her nose. it does not fit her face. She has the worst nose of all the princesses to me. Also her hair is pretty but I hate the hairstyles Disney gave her. Maybe if they let her hair be loose && a little shorter I would like it more. && her waist is too tiny. a lot of the princesses have...

Hello, this is CodyVenusTrent


Being the last day of the month (and being the last day of Rapunzel's month, I decided to write this article about my favorite Disney Princess couple. Flynn and Rapunzel.

This is my first article (it will be short as it is my first attempt to write one), give your opinion (Please, don’t be rude).


It’s about the main reason why I love them so much.

Its about the way on how they start their “relationship”.



It wil be written under the pictures as I'm still new on this writing thing.
Meeting for the first time

And finally watching how much they love the other one. Rapunzel was going to give up her freedom for him and Flynn was going to give his life for her.

Although, everything happened in short time (One or two nights), it shows how the relationship went from pursuing one dream to a new life, a new dream and finding love .

I've been here for two years and I haven't made my favorites disney princess list. I don't hate or dislike any of them, I like all of them, just some more than others. Please comment saying what you think.

Why do they still treat me like a child?
Why do they still treat me like a child?

I was starting to have a neutral feeling for her but today I watched it and I really like her, but not enough to put her higher. I think she's very charming. I love how she has that feeling of how she doesn't want to be treated like a child anymore. I also adore that she talks to animals like they're real people. She also has a great voice...

It has been discussed enough...and why is that " if it makes her human" which I strongly disagree with, because most people know that being selfish is a bad thing. The Prince was turned into a Beast because he was " cruel selfish and unkind" and those three traits go together. People in general are not selfish-if they are its a big turn off, and Ariel is not selfish, she wanted something more out of life , something that we all have wanted. And she does care about her family and learned something in the end, she learned that she should probably not be so trusting, you see that in the sequel-...
