12. Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Tbh, Snow White sounds like a strange, warped, grown-woman-made-to-sound-like-a-child mess. She hits some pretty notes here and there, but maybe it's the sound quality that makes this whole thing a little off.

11. Cinderella from Cinderella (1950)

Cinderella sure does a lot of plaintive singing about her dreams and whatnot. A standard singing voice for the time – she doesn’t get too showy with a ton of big soaring notes.

10. Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989)

Another standard musical voice. A little warbled but not annoying, Ariel has a voice perfect for pining for a human prince.

9. Aurora from Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Less warbled than Snow White and more womanly, Aurora sounds just fine. Even better, she doesn't get too "Broadway." Extra props for bringing operatic vocals to Disney.

8. Belle from Beauty And The Beast (1991)

Belle has the conventional Disney princess voice that was dominant in the late '80s and '90s. It's clear and feminine without a lot of trilling like the old-school princesses. It's basically the singing version of her speaking voice. Nothing particularly notable.

7. Jasmine from Aladdin (1992)

The voice behind Jasmine is the same one as Mulan, but a tad deeper. She's clear and expressive without being too cheesy or too whimsical.

6. Anna from Frozen (2013)

Ana's voice isn't anything particularly special as far as Disney princess vocals go, but they're solid. She gets an extra nod for harkening back to the '90s princess sound.

5. Mulan from Mulan (1998)

Mulan also has the clear, girly stylings that princesses from her era are known for. She benefits by sounding conversational and delivering a more simple vocal.

4. Pocahontas from Pocahontas (1995)

Pocahontas is one of the modern princesses that is the most similar vocally to Aurora and Snow White. The thing that makes her different is the bigger range that she uses and the more contemporary sound overall.

3. Elsa from Frozen (2013)

Although she’s actually a queen, Elsa belts the most out of all the Disney princess and does it much like a pop singer would – with charisma. It gives her an edge over the other ladies.

2. Rapunzel from Tangled (2010)

Rapunzel benefits from the fact that Mandy Moore is the person behind her voice. Mandy gives her a different sound than the more Broadway-leaning tones of most Disney princesses.

1. Tiana from The Princess and the Frog (2009)

Range is a big deal and Princess Tiana has that. She hits soulful low notes and soaring high notes in the span of one song. The touch of rasp on some of her vocals makes her the most dynamic singing princess.
