Top 10 Disney Heroines

Gone are the days of Disney flicks packed full of damsels in distress, waiting for Prince Charming to swoop in and save them. Today's animated ladies are just as brave, fierce and dazzling as their male counterparts. Here's a look at some of the Disney heroines who put the "power" in girl power.

10. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

On the surface she may seem like your average damsel in distress, but Belle is no shrinking violet. Belle doesn't hesitate to exchange her own life for her father's when he is locked away in a scary castle with a seemingly untamable beast. And she manages to keep up a cheerful attitude while she does it!

9. Elastigirl (The Incredibles)

Most moms have a hard time balancing work, kids, soccer games, and PTA meetings, but Elastigirl also battles bad guys and saves her husband from an untimely demise. Elastigirl is sassy, quick-witted, but most of all she's always flexible.

8. Miss Bianca (The Rescuers)

She's prissy, and well-dressed but never shies away from an adventure. Miss Bianca is a refined rodent who is unflappable in the face of danger. She may seem a little frosty, but leaps to the aid of a young orphan who is held captive on a steam ship (and then faces danger again in The Rescuers Down Under).

7. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Sassy, feisty and full of life, Ariel is a wistful heroine who knows how to have fun. Along with her BFF Flounder, Ariel seeks out adventure at every turn. While she's definitely a romantic at heart, Ariel doesn't subscribe to the "one day my prince will come" philosophy. Instead, she fights tooth and nail to find him herself, no matter what the cost!

6. Esmeralda (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)

Esmeralda is a tough, street-smart gypsy girl, who befriends deformed Quasimodo. She won't tolerate injustice of any kind - whether it's to her hunchbacked friend or her own persecuted gypsy people. Esmeralda is definitely the toughest Disney heroine, who always stands up for her beliefs.
