Disney princesses may get all the attention, but how can you not love all the Disney princes! After all, it’s because of them that many of our heroines find true love and live happily ever after. Think you know the prince that belongs to each princess? Check out this list of Disney princes and see how well you do.
If you love the Disney princess movies as much as we do, then you’re probably a fan of the Disney princes too! I mean, many of these fairy tales wouldn’t have a happy ending without the handsome prince…it takes two to tango right?
Though not all the Disney princesses have a prince (Princess Merida and Moana had other things on their mind), the majority of princess movies involve a handsome prince and happily ever after. I mean, where, where would Cinderella be without Prince Charming? And if there were no Prince Naveen, we’d pretty much have to change the entire plot of The Princess And The Frog.
The question is, how big of a fan are you? Think you can name every one of the princes? Keep reading to see the complete list of all Disney princes. You may even learn some fun facts along the way!

The Prince (a.k.a. Prince Florian or Prince Ferdinand)
Movie: Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs
Voiced by: Harry Stockwell
Based on an old Brothers Grimm tale, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs was the first full length animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. It focuses on Snow White, our original Disney princess, who with her jet black hair and rose red lips is the fairest in all the land.
Her jealous stepmother can’t handle sharing the attention so she tries to have Snow White killed. Instead, Snow White runs off into the forest and moves in with the seven dwarfs.
It wouldn’t be a princess movie without a prince though. The first time we see him is in the beginning of the movie. He comes across Snow White singing in front of a wishing well an joins in for a verse or two. Clearly he’s smitten. We don’t see the prince again until the end where he wakes her with a kiss and rescues her from her evil stepmother (making him one of our first Disney heroes).
Though his real name never been made official, he’s been referred to as Florian at Disney On Ice performances and other sources have called him Prince Ferdinand.
Fun Fact: While the original script had the prince playing a more prominent role, he only appears twice because Disney animators found him so hard to animate.

Prince Charming (a.k.a. Prince Henry)
Voiced by: William Phipps (speaking voice) & Mike Douglas (singing voice)
Poor Prince Charming! His father wants him to find a wife but he just hasn’t found the right girl. To speed things up, the king throws a royal ball and invites all the ladies in the kingdom.
Cinderella is just a poor girl who loses her parents at a young age and now spends all her days serving her evil stepmother and stepsisters. If it were up to them, Cinderella would stay home scrubbing the floors. Luckily, Cinderella’s fairy godmother comes to the rescue and with a little magic, gets her all fixed up so she can attend the ball too.
Talk about love at first sight! It takes just a few dances for Prince Charming to fall madly in love with our heroine. After she runs away at the stroke of midnight, leaving just her glass slipper behind, he searches the entire kingdom looking for the girl of his dreams. In the end they marry and live happily ever after. It’s not The Notebook but it’s still pretty romantic, right?
Fun Fact: The prince is never actually called Prince Charming in the movie. We only know him as Prince Charming through Disney merchandise and Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel at Disney. According to a Disney France TV commercial though, his name is Prince Henry.
Movie: Sleeping Beauty
Voiced By: Bill Shirley
Prince Phillip is the handsome prince in the 1959 film Sleeping Beauty. He was also the first prince to have a name. Though his marriage to another princess has already been arranged, he falls in love with a peasant girl he meets in the forest. Little does he know that she is actually the one he is supposed to marry!
He’s soon taken prisoner by Malificent because if he kisses Aurora before her 16th birthday, he will break the spell Malificent cast over her years earlier. He somehow manages to escape, lays a magic kiss on Aurora and breaks the spell.
Fun Fact: Rumor has it that Prince Philip was named after Queen Elizabeth’s husband, since he was a real world prince that Americans were already familiar with.
Movie: The Little Mermaid
Voiced By: Christopher Daniel Barnes
In a turn of events for a Disney movie, Ariel is the first princess to rescue her prince. When Prince Eric’s ship is caught in a storm, the mermaid Ariel saves him from drowning, though all he can remember is the sound of her beautiful singing voice.
He knows there’s something special about Ariel but can’t quite figure it out. He slowly begins to fall for her but can’t get the girl who rescued him out of his mind. Eventually he learns that they are one in the same and he and Arial get married and of course, live happily ever after.
Fun Fact: Prince Eric just might just be a distant relative of Prince Philip and Princess Aurora. There’s a painting in his dining room that looks a lot like the royal couple.
Prince Adam (a.k.a. Beast)
Movie: Beauty And The Beast
Voiced By: Robby Benson
At the beginning of the movie, it’s revealed that because the prince was selfish and uncaring, an enchantress has turned him into a Beast. When Beast imprisons Belle’s father, she comes searching for him and ultimately switches places. This does do much for Belle’s impression of the prince either. convince her otherwise.
However, over time they form a friendship and Belle begins to realize that he’s just a big teddy bear. In fact, he releases her to be with her father but she returns to warn him that the villagers, and Gaston, plan to attack.
The Beast is seriously injured and as he lays on his deathbed, Belle professes her love. It happens just in the nick of time and Beast changes back into human form, then the two marry and live happily ever after.
Though most people know him as The Beast, the prince in 1991’s Beauty And The Beast is really named Adam. Like Prince Florian and Prince Charming, his name is never mentioned in the movie. We learned his name was Adam after it was revealed in the CD-ROM game and the Beauty And The Beast musical.
Fun Fact: In the original fairy tale, the prince was turned into a beast because he wouldn’t marry his evil fairy godmother.

In this Disney princess movie, the “prince” is as much a main character as the princess. Though he was born as a poor street urchin, Aladdin’s life changes the day he meets princess Jasmine at the street market. Unaware of her true identity, he crushes on her immediately, later learning that she is the princess of Agrabah.
He pretends to be Prince Ali Ababwa in order to win her love but she finds out and his plan backfires. Eventually all is forgiven and true love wins out.
Fun Fact: In the original storyline, Aladdin knew all along that Jasmine was a princess. That was changed because they didn’t want it to look like Aladdin was just going after her because she was rich.
Voiced by: Mel Gibson
Based loosely on the historical figure (VERY loosely according to some), John Smith is an English soldier who voyages to the New World and meets an Native American princess named Pocahontas. They form a connection and he falls in love with her.
Later in the story when Pocahontas’ father is on the verge of killing Smith, she jumps in and saves his life. However, unlike most princess movies, the two main characters go their separate ways at the end.
Fun Fact: This is the first movie where Mel Gibson show off his singing talents. Before this, he’d never sung in a movie before.

Li Shang, son of the head of China’s Imperial Army, dreams of being a great leader and putting together the best group of soldiers China has ever seen. He’s given a group of soldiers to train but they’re a bit like the Bad News Bears of the army…a menagerie of misfits that includes Mulan disguised as a male soldier.
Li Shang learns Mulan’s true identity after she is injured in battle. Saving her from the punishment of death, Li Shang banishes her. However, when Shang’s army battles the Huns, Mulan returns to help save the day. We get a hint of their blossoming romance at the end of the movie, as Li Shang joins Mulan’s family for dinner.
Fun Fact: Action star Bruce Willis was originally cast as Li Shang.
Movie: The Princess And The Frog
Voiced by: Bruno Campos
The eldest prince of Maldonia, Prince Naveen is good-looking and charming but also spoiled and vain! Unfortunately for him, a witch doctor casts a spell and turns him into a frog. The spell can only be broken if he’s able to convince a princess to kiss him.
Soon after that, Naveen meets Tiana, a waitress who dreams of owning her own restaurant. Believing that she’s actually a princess, he convinces her to kiss him but all that does is cause her to turn into a frog too.
As they journey through the bayou to find a way to break the spell, they slowly begin to fall in love. Eventually they come across voodoo priestess Mama Odie, who uses her magic to break the spell. They become human again and marry. In the end, he helps Tiana fulfill her dream of running a hugely successful restaurant.
Fun Fact: Prince Naveen and Tiana kiss five times in the movie…more than any other Disney prince and princess.
Flynn Rider (a.k.a. Eugene Fitzherbert)
Voiced by: Zachary Levi
Growing up as an orphan, Eugene Fitzherbert decided to change his name to Flynn Rider, based on a character in a book. He then becomes a thief and dreams of one day being stranded on an island surrounded by enormous piles of money!
Along the way, he breaks into Rapunzel’s tower to escape some thugs that he double-crossed. However, he quickly learns that he’s met his match. Determined to see the floating lanterns on her birthday, she bribes him into helping her leave the tower.
Running from both thugs and Mother Gothel, Rapunzel and Flynn start to develop a friendship. As they watch the floating lanterns, they share a romantic moment and though there are still a few more obstacles along the way, they wind up together at the end.
Fun Fact: Zachary Levi was born in Louisiana but got the part by auditioning with a British accent. This was later changed to have his character speak in an American accent.
As Disney fans, we all have our favorite characters. I may be partial to Beast but I do love Flynn Ryder’s sarcastic sense of humor! Which Disney prince is your favorite?
