Snow White


■In The Muppets at Walt Disney World, Snow White was the Disney character who had the biggest part in the story, besides Mickey Mouse.

■In 1988, Snow White was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

■Snow White is the first Disney Princess, being the main character of Disney's first animated feature film.

■Snow White is one of the five Disney Princesses to be of royal blood.

■Snow White makes a cameo appearance in Aladdin and the King of Thieves when Genie turns Jasmine into Snow White.

■To achieve a natural skin tone for Snow White, real rouge and other make-up was applied onto the cel.

■The development designs for Snow White ranged from cartoony to more realistic, while the final colors of the dress had before gone through several changes before settling with its current blue and gold appearance.

■She is the first Disney Princess to communicate with wildlife who can understand humans.

■Snow White is most likely the youngest Princess, being 14 years old. This contrasts with the fact that she is the first Disney Princess.


Cinderella
Cinderella
Cinderella


■Cinderella is the first Disney Princess to be seen as a little girl, before Tiana in 2009 and Rapunzel in 2010.

■Cinderella is the second Disney Princess after Snow White in 1937.

■Cinderella's hair color has often been the subject of debate among fans. In the original film, Cinderella's hair seems to be of a light orange tone, classifying her as either a redhead or a ginger as her hair had been offically called 'burnt orange'. In the franchise and in the Disney parks, Cinderella's hair is publicized as bright yellow, making her a golden-blonde, although her hair remained orange-ish in the original film and the second sequel. The most common consensus is that she is a strawberry-blonde, which is blonde hair bearing a reddish tint.
    
■Her birthday is June 30th

■Cinderella is a Cancer

■Similar to Snow White, Cinderella is forced to be raised without a father for the majority of her life. Instead, she is placed in the hands of a cruel and jealous stepmother. Another similarity is that the two are forced to be household servants in an attempt to hide their outer beauty.

■Cinderella is the first out of the four Disney Princesses to not be of royal blood, paving the way for Belle in 1991, Mulan in 1998 and Tiana in 2009.

■Her shoe size is mentioned in the third movie which is a size 4 1/2 in woman's.

■The symbolic message of the glass slippers is that Cinderella is so delicate that she can walk in glass shoes and not break them. It is also symbolic how she can be comfortable in glass shoes, meaning to she can easily adapt to typically "uncomfortable" situations.

■Cinderella is considered the "leader" of the Disney Princesses, often being positioned in the center of publicity photos. This has been subject to some controversy, however, because she is the second Disney Princess, after Snow White. Some feel that Snow White deserves to be the leader, because she is the main protagonist of Disney's first film, and was introduced to the world 13 years before Cinderella.

■Cinderella is the most popular Disney Princess among children.

■Cinderella is derived from the French word Cendrillon, which translates in English as "little ash girl".

■The only mention of Cinderella's mother was in the first movie when she showed the mice a dress that belonged to her that she was planning to fix up for the ball.

■Unlike how Cinderella's iconic Ballgown is featured in the original feature film, there are few differences in its depiction in the Disney parks and ice shows. The first being is that a bow is part of the gown, the second is that the hair is blonde and not burnt orange, and third being is that silver slippers are worn in the parks, instead of transparent plastic type slippers to pass for 'glass' slippers.

-In the movie, Cinderella wears a whitish-silver dress to the ball. However, in most merchandise, this is changed to a bright blue dress.


Aurora
Aurora
Aurora


-Princess Aurora is the third Disney Princess, after Snow White in 1937 and Cinderella in 1950.

-Princess Aurora is the second Disney Princess to be saved by "true love's kiss", after Snow White in 1937.

-Princess Aurora's alias is Briar Rose, which is also the title of the Brothers Grimm version of the tale.

-The name Aurora is the daughter's name of the Sleeping Beauty in the version of Charles Perrault.

-Princess Aurora is the first Disney Princess to have an official alias.

-Aurora means "sunrise" or "dawn" in Latin.

-Princess Aurora is the first Disney Princess to have both parents present during her film.

-Princess Aurora is one of the five Disney Princesses to be royal by birth, second after Snow White.

-Princess Aurora's dress is constantly changed from blue to pink and back again as a running gag during her film. The constant color change is due to Flora and Merryweather's disagreement on what the color should be. Although it is most commonly seen as pink in publicity photos, it hasn't yet been made official whether her dress is blue or pink. It is likely that she owns dresses of both colors.

-Although never confirmed, there was belief that Aurora's frequently changing dress colors may signify what child she may have. Blue is a color that often denotes a baby boy while pink is used for girls.

-Aurora is the first Disney Princess to be initially unaware of her identity as a princess, the second being Rapunzel.

-Aurora is the only true blonde Disney princess, with the exception of Rapunzel who is only blonde haired due to magic, but is actually a brunette.

-Aurora is the first Disney Princess to go around barefoot (when she was Briar Rose). The next being Pocahontas and Rapunzel.

-Her real name, Aurora, which is mentioned few times in the film, is often unused or even unknown of by some people, by them she is only called Sleeping Beauty.


Ariel
Ariel
Ariel


-Ariel is the only Disney Princess to not be born a human.

-Ariel is the only Disney Princess to have a child of her own.

-Ariel is the second youngest princess (being sixteen years old) while Snow White is the youngest.

-Unlike her sisters, as a mermaid Ariel doesn't wear hair accessories.

-Although all of Ariel's sister's names begin with the letter "A", Ariel is the only one to be of Roman instead of Greek origin, and the only one to not end with the letter "a" and an "uh" syllable, as in Aquat"a", Andrin"a", Arist"a", Attin"a", Adell"a" and Alan"a". Instead, Ariel ends with a distinct "e" letter and "elle" syllable. This could have been in an attempt to draw more attention to Ariel and emphasize how original she is.

-In Hebrew terms, Ariel translates to English as "lion of God".

-Although Ariel and Athena bare a striking resemblance, her personality is more similar to that of her father, King Triton's. This is especially noticeable in The Little Mermaid II, when Ariel reprimands her daughter Melody for disobeying orders and venturing out into the sea, the same way Ariel disobeyed her father's rules in the first film.

-Ariel's daughter Melody shares almost all of Ariel's personality traits from the first film. However, Ariel dreamt of becoming human and living on land while Melody's dream was to swim beneath the waves.

-Ariel is the first (and currently the only) Disney Princess to have red hair.

-Ariel, Belle and Jasmine have each nearly drowned.

-Ariel was the first Disney Princess to expose her midriff, and the second to be portrayed naked, after Cinderella.

-Ariel is the first and currently the only Disney Princess to have biological siblings (the other Disney Princesses are an only child).

-Ariel is the only Disney princess to not speak for most of the original film having traded her voice for legs. Aurora is an exception as she doesn't utter a word after her last speaking scene with the three fairies.


Belle
Belle
Belle


-Belle was the second Disney Princess to not be of royal descent, after Cinderella in 1950.

-Belle was the final Disney Princess to have the same actress play both her speaking and singing voices until Tiana in 2009.

-Belle is the first Disney Princess to "save" her prince at the film's climax by breaking the spell and returning the Beast to his human form. She is followed by Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel.

-Belle is the third Disney Princess to have a father present during the film, after Aurora in 1959 and Ariel in 1989, and before Jasmine in 1992, Pocahontas in 1995, Mulan in 1998, Tiana in 2009 and Rapunzel in 2010.

-Belle arguably saw the dawn of more heroic and independent Disney Princesses. Her legacy led to Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel. However, some say this title rightfully belongs to Ariel

-Belle is French for "beautiful".

-Belle is the first and only Disney Princess to not sing the film's theme song, "Beauty and the Beast". Instead, it is sung by the supporting character, Mrs. Potts.

Jasmine
Jasmine
Jasmine



■Jasmine is the sixth Disney Princess, and one of the five to be of royal blood.

■Jasmine is the first Disney Princess to marry a pauper.

■Jasmine is the first Disney Princess to have a role that is slightly less significant than that of her male counterpart. Therefore, she is a deuteragonist.

■Lea Salonga provided both Jasmine and Mulan's singing voices.

■According to the filmmaker's notes on the Special Edition DVD, actress Linda Larkin was asked to repeatedly lower her voice to play Jasmine..

■She is the only Disney Princess shown with a relative who isn't a parent, husband, or siblings; in Jasmine's case her cousin Sharma.

■The only mention of Jasmine's mother is in the first movie ("I don't know where she get's it from; her mother wasn't nearly as picky."-Sultan)

■Jasmine is the only Disney Princess to ever kiss a villain.

Pocahontas
Pocahontas
Pocahontas


-Pocahontas is the first and currently only Disney Princess to have two love interests. However, most media, including the Disney Princess franchise, keep John Smith and Pocahontas as an official couple, ignoring John Rolfe.

-According to legend, Pocahontas changed her name to Rebecca. However, this doesn't occur in any of the Disney films.

-The real name of Pocahontas is Matoaka, while Pocahontas is her nickname. However, this isn't mentioned in any of the Disney films.

Mulan
Mulan


-Mulan is first Disney Princess to be of East-Asian appearance.

-Mulan is the first Disney Princess to not be an actual princess, for she was neither born into royalty, nor did she marry a prince. She is the third Disney Princess to not be of royal descent (the first being Cinderella, the second being Belle, and the fourth being Tiana), as well as the third to not to marry a prince (the first being Jasmine, the second being Pocahontas, and the fourth being Rapunzel).

-Mulan is the first Disney Princess to kill the film's villain, before Tiana in 2009.

-Mulan means "magnolia blossom" in Chinese.

-While her name is "Fa Mulan" in the Disney film, in the actual Chinese legend her name is "Hua Mulan", though they are both pronounced similarly. This was probably done to avoid copyright issues with Chinese historians, so that Disney could have full ownership of the Disney adaptation of the legendary figure.

-Tiana is the third Disney Princess to be tempted by the villain's offer to make their wishes come true; the first two being Snow White, who wished to marry a prince and ate the poison apple, and Ariel, who exchanged her voice for human legs. Tiana, though, was able to resist because she finally realized what was important.

Rapunzel
Rapunzel



-Rapunzel was originally to have been voiced by Broadway actress and singer Kristen Chenoweth, but was later replaced by singer-songwriter Mandy Moore.

-Rapunzel is the second Disney Princess to have her hair cut after Mulan. However, she is the first to have her hair cut by someone other than herself.

-Rapunzel is similar to Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the sense that neither can leave their home under the strict orders of their "parents".

-Rapunzel is the third Disney Princess to have been barefoot, the others are Aurora and Pocahontas.

-Rapunzel is the only Disney princess to have green eyes and the second Disney heroine after Esmeralda to have green eyes.
    
-Rapunzel is the first Disney Princess to be computer animated. Special software was used specifically to animate Rapunzel's hair because no one ever animated that much hair before.

-Although Rapunzel is based on the character from the classic fairy tale, she is altered quite a bit in order to develop a more adventurous and outgoing personality, and further complicate the romantic relationship between her and her love-interest.

-Despite having her hair cut and turn brown in the movie, making her the first Disney Princess to have her hair change color, Rapunzel's hair is kept long and blonde in many of the promotional images and in the Disney parks.

-Rapunzel is the second Disney Princess to have her love-interest die and brought back to life (the first being Belle), the second to be unaware of her identity as a princess (Aurora was the first), as well as the second to have a resemblance to her mother (The Queen akin to Princess Aurora's mother, Queen Leah).

-After her hair gets cut, Rapunzel became the Disney Princess with the second shortest hair, behind Snow White.

-The color purple is often said to be the color of royalty. During the film, Rapunzel only wears purple, which can be a reference to Rapunzel's true royal identity.

-Rapunzel is the first Disney Princess to have magic powers, the source of them initially being hair. However, when her hair is cut, her healing powers remained in her tears, the first whose mother is shown pregnant, and also the first to have freckles.

-Rapunzel is the first Disney Princess to have a female villain in her story since Ariel in 1989.

-Rapunzel was "officially welcomed into the Disney Princess Royal Court" during a promotional event at Kensington Palace in London on October 2, 2011.

-Rapunzel is the second Disney heroine to have artistic ablities, the first being Jane Porter

Yeah, I know the webside, although some things are inaccurate. ie Ariel being the second youngest princess - she already is 16 in the movie, while Aurora's movie plays on the day of her 16th birthday, so she is definitly slightly younger than Ariel (never mind all the other princesses who are 16). And Tiana didn't kill Facilier, she just destroyed his amulett, his friends from the other side killed him. And yes, purple is the colour of royality, but it also happens to be the color of the Rampion, the flower Rapunzel is named after (and she can be added into the list of princesses who nearly drowned, too).
Thanks for putting all of this together at one site.
