Belle! Belle has always been a favorite of mine and my sister's. We loved the fact that she was a bookworm (and a bit of a nerd) like we were, and the fact that her favorite part of the castle was the library. The songs in the movie were contagious: "You never know it's him, till Chapter 3!" Not to mention, she fell in love with the Beast despite his scary exterior. What's not to love?
Mulan. I love that this character came in second! Talk about one kick butt Asian chick. You've gotta love a girl who dresses as a guy but can fight as well or better than any of them. I love her relationship with her father and how she sacrifices so much to keep him safe.
Ariel, who was in a very close third place behind Mulan, is another favorite of mine. I think I've always wanted to be a mermaid. And I was one of those kids who embarrassingly bellowed "Part of Your World" in every swimming pool and puffed out my non-existent chest at the end of the song (yes, yes, the Reprise). If you haven't seen the musical, you must. I think Ariel is even cooler because she chooses to save everyone instead of fulfilling her greatest desire-- to be with Prince Eric.
Lilo, from Lilo and Stitch, is another favorite. Although the combination of her and Stitch together is what is precious. I love how fearless and loyal she is no matter what. Talk about unconditional love (as Stitch is destroying everything in the house). Not to mention how she feeds Pudge, the fish, with peanut butter.
Giselle. Love her. Enchanted is one of my all time favorite movies. I love how it pokes fun lovingly at all the princess Disney movies that have come before. And I love how she develops and grows up throughout the movie. I died laughing during her songs, especially the ones where she makes all the nasty creatures to do her cleaning!
And last but not least, Tiana from Princess and the Frog. I didn't see this movie until much later, but she is pretty awesome-- she works so hard for a living, and really makes a future for herself. I love how she is such a great model to all little girls out there.
So there you have it! I'll have another poll up very soon! Thanks to all who voted!
