About This Quiz

No matter which generation you belong to or which country you come from, there's a Disney character (or two or ten) that will always hold a special place in your heart. Its global reach means the characters from some of its most popular films are recognized the world over.  Besides the iconic face of Disney, Mickey Mouse himself, many contemporary characters have achieved worldwide fame including Aladdin, the Genie, the Simba, Pinocchio, Mike Wazowski and all the princesses from Snow White to Anna and Elsa. 

Disney films are known for having imaginative storylines like a mermaid who wishes to be human after falling in love with a prince ("The Little Mermaid"), then there's an arcade game character who is tired of being the antagonist ("Wreck-It-Ralph")  and monsters who reluctantly care for the little girl they're supposed to be scaring ("Monsters Inc."). Many of the movies are just as well known for their music  with classics like "Beauty and the Beast", "You've Got a Friend in Me", and "A Whole New World" becoming some of the most memorable songs in history. Through it all, it's the characters that bring these stories to life so if you feel you're truly an expert here's your chance to be our guest and put your knowledge to the test.
