My name is Olaf and I like warm hugs”. Olaf is the cutest character Disney lovers can ever cherish. It belongs to the heart-warming movie “Frozen”.

In the movie Frozen, Olaf is always cheerful. He motivates Elsa, helps her and is her support. Olaf at times also gets dismantled but he doesn’t give a damn about it. Awesome, isn’t it?

5. Aladdin

Only 90s kids would get the enormous vision of flying carpet, Genie and the magical oil lamp when the word “Aladdin” comes.  Aladdin is a fictional character of the miraculous and fantasy film “Aladdin”.  He is a poor street boy who finds an oil lamp.

No, not the normal oil lamp, this one that Aladdin finds is the one on which you rub your hand and Voila! You have a Genie and 3 wonderful wishes to ask. Twists and turns ensue as Aladdin wants to be king when Princess Jasmine enters the frame.  He wants to marry this pretty lady.

Aladdin’s character is really different from other Disney male characters as he perfectly balances things and is quite transparent with his aims as well. Aladdin is perhaps the most tactful character and the identity he carries is always visualized with a flying carpet, of course with the hippie pants

4. Donald Duck

Quack Quack!  Donald Duck is a cartoon character with an orange-yellow bill and elongated feet and oh the cute legs.

 Yes, his appearance is a bit weird but his cuteness cannot be matched on a serious note.

He wears a sailor shirt, cap and a bow tie. He is famous for what he speaks. Really witty but the words are a bit snarly at times. Donald Duck is fashionably famous in the comic section. Our artful duck is seen in many movies like the Fantasia 2000, The 3 Musketeers etc.

Fun Fact

It is known that the origin of this super-duper Disney character is inspired by “Donald Bradman”- an Australian cricket legend. Something different, isn’t it?

3. Ariel

“The little mermaid” is how we all know her. And it is sure that this little mermaid has not so little moves. Ariel is born in water and that is her universe. The sixteen-year-old bubbling mermaid is perhaps not always satisfied with the colour blue that is the very part of her world. She wants to explore the human world and its authenticity.

She often goes to the surface of the ocean to see the humans living their life. Scuttle, a seagull is her informer to gather the information about the human world. She breaks the rules of staying in the waters and falls in love with a prince.

Her faith in humanity turns herself into a human. She faces storms, disgust, embarrassment and what not. But her love for Prince Eric and faith in her dreams achieves it all.

2. Snow White

Guess what? Her wish is granted with a snowy pretty princess but the queen has to bid farewell from snow white and the world.
