How well do you think you know the Disney princesses? Take this quiz to find out.
Have you ever dreamed of being a princess? If you're like just about every little girl in the world, you sure have... at least at some point. And the best princesses to base your wishes on are those of the Disney movies.
The princesses of Disney are such big business that the company has built an entire line of marketing around them. However, the line does not include every Disney princess, but only a select few, eleven to be exact, including Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, and Merida.
Each of these young ladies has been given an official Disney princess number in the royal lineup, and the company markets several products around the line, including videos, dolls, home goods, clothing, and shoes. We'll lay odds that if you had a favorite Disney princess when you were a child, you've introduced your own daughter to the joy of princess dreams.
So, whether your idea of being a princess was based on the life of a curious mermaid or a sleeping beauty, this quiz is for you. Let's find out how well you do.
