There’s one thing that Disney knows and does better than any other entity – Princesses. Princesses rule the Magic Kingdoms of Disney theme parks around the world. People are known to wait an hour or longer to meet with their favorite princess. Walt Disney World currently offers regular meet and greets with 10 “Princesses”: Jasmine, Merida, Tiana, Snow White, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Belle, Aurora, Pocahontas (Her dad was Chief Powhatan), Mulan (who isn’t a princess or related to one but often marketed as one). Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, Fairy Godmother, Tinker Bell and the Tremaine family also represent strong female lead characters who appear in their human form.
