* GirlsNeedRoleModels: Initially when the line-up was created this was a large factor behind it. Certainly all of them are in possession of admirable "role model" traits, particularly for their era. This is generally how Disney defends the inclusion of non-princesses, citing that its their quality of character that makes them a Disney Princess. That said, [[BaseBreakeringCharacter a good many of them have come under fire for allegedly not fulfilling their role model status well enough]].

* PuritySue: Many of the Disney Princess are {{beaut|yEqualsGoodness}}iful, [[TheIngenue kind]], a FriendToAllLivingThings, instantly beloved by anyone who isn't an inveterate {{Jerkass}}, and generally flawless. In particular Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Pocahontas, and Rapunzel who lack any stand-out flaws.

** The classic princesses--Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora--are often criticized in fandom (and media) that believes they are terrible role models, boring {{Mary Sue}}s, shallow characters, and bad examples of feminism. Alternatively, many others see them as having perhaps aged not quite well, but still good characters that were limited by the time period they were in and made in, or even refreshingly different in their gentler personalities than the type of heroines usually made today.

** Pocahontas. Fans either think a decent role model that stand out due to the GreenAesop of her movie despite the glaring historical inaccuracy or an incredibly shallow MarySue with little personality, preachy message and an insult to the real Pocahontas. And then there are people who think that while a passable character, she and her movie is a total letdown compare to the previous installment's incredibly flawed protagonist Simba from ''The Lion King''.

** Also, artistic portrayals of the Princesses as pretty much anything you could think of.

* PeripheryDemographic:
** While the franchise started out targeting young girls exclusively, Disney eventually realized the untapped market of *older* fans who had grown up with the princesses and wanted merchandise for themselves who had always been there to buy some of the more reserved dolls or prints. Now Disney has whole lines catering to them, to expensive fashion dolls, women's clothing, and more.
** Both the franchise, but more so its constituent movies (especially ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''), are extremely popular with teen and adult women, essentially acting as their [[DistaffCounterpart equivalent]] to male-majority fandoms like ''Franchise/StarWars'' and Creator/MarvelComics. This is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in that the individual movies were aimed at all ages in the first place.

* MemeticMutation: Ever since Disney's purchase of both Marvel and Lucasfilm, a popular internet meme is to label princesses from either Marvel or StarWars as Disney Princesses.

** There's also the matter of other Disney heroines not being included - especially with Mulan and Pocahontas not technically being royalty (though Pocahontas is described as a princess to the King of England in her sequel movie). Esmerelda appeared to be part of the initial line but was dropped after a while. This extends to girls that are canonically princesses in their films - such as Eilonwy from ''Disney/TheBlackCauldon'' and Kida from ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire''. It's theorised that it's because their films didn't do well at the box office.
