The Best Disney Princess Movies

Updated November 22, 2019 14.8k votes 3.7k voters 61.3k views20 items

List RulesOnly movies featuring Disney Princesses

A list of the best Disney Princess movies including all the Disney films with princesses. This list includes the top Disney Princess movies for audiences of all ages, and, while Disney Princess films tend to be geared toward 2 to 5 year old girls, they can be fun for parents as well (if you're looking to cater specifically to younger children, the best kids movies is the place to be). These are the best animated films Disney has to offer (ok, not ALL the best animated movies, but all the best ones with Princesses).

In the Disney Princess universe, royalty, glamour, regal behavior, and beautiful dresses are all present to make sure the Princess movies have something to offer for everyone. We believe we've thought of them all, but if your favorite Disney Princess film isn't on the list of the top Disney Princess films, please feel free to add it to the list yourself so that it can have a chance at being called the greatest Disney Princess movie ever.

If you love these movies, you should check out Ranker's Disney Princess Halloween costumes list so you can dress up like a real Disney princess.
