When it comes to fairy tales, royalty reigns supreme! We all tend to have our own favorite Disney Princess and in a recent survey by CableTV.com, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that entire states also lean towards one heroine or another.
Analysts at CableTV.com compiled a list of 16 famed Disney Princesses (sadly, Moana didn’t actually make it to the top of any state) and used Google Trends to determine how each princess fared throughout the United States. The result is this chart that shows the most popular princess per state. Keep scrolling to see how your state voted!
Elsa took the crown in 18 states overall, the most of any one princess and it’s no surprise given the popularity of Frozen. Sixteen states fell for the Frozen princess, including Hawaii, Texas, Utah, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Elsa tied with another princess in two states, South Carolina and Wisconsin.
Anna is a close second with big sis Elsa when it comes taking tons of states by storm. In addition to sharing South Carolina and Wisconsin, Anna is most popular in Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and Washington D.C.
Alaska, Oregon and New Mexico are ready to get down to business! The film hit its 20th anniversary this year, but continues to be a fave for plenty of budding princesses.
Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame hasn’t always been considered a Disney Princess, but she is now! The Romani woman is most popular in California, Oklahoma and Maryland this year.
It’s no surprise that Nevada and Arizona love Jasmine. Can you say “desert?” New Yorkers also tend to love this Arabian Disney Princess.
Bears and Wyoming go hand and hand, and it’s also true for the state’s most beloved princess, Merida. The bear wrangler took the crown in this wilderness state.
Snazzy Snow White
Who’s the fairest of them all? Snow White—in these four states! The vintage beauty reigns supreme in Washington, Utah, Idaho and Vermont.
Sleeping Beauty is keeping everyone awake in Arkansas. The young princess is the number one fave in this state only!
Native American princess Pocahontas stays true to her roots. She’s a Disney fave in prairie states like Indiana and Kansas.
Tiana’s not just almost there, she’s there when it comes to taking first place in her home state of Louisiana. It’s no surprise, since her film is set in the heart of New Orleans.
Belle calls Utah and Maine her home away from home (after France, of course). The beast-adoring gal is the most popular in these two states.
This Disney classic princess shares the crown with four others for her only state, Utah. Other popular vintage princesses include Belle and Snow White, with newcomers Rapunzel and Elsa.
Hercules‘ Meg (or properly known as Megara) is highly debatable when it comes to official Disney Princess lore. Regardless, North Carolina favors her above all the rest.
Long-haired and cast iron skillet-wielding Rapunzel is the most popular Disney Princess in Utah and New Hampshire. Like her sister princesses, she shares Utah with Cinderella, Snow White, Elsa and Belle.
