Title of blog “Which Disney characters are Americans crushing on”

Disney movies overflow with magic, enchanting music, charming woodland sidekicks, and hot people. Admit it — you’ve thought a Disney character was hot, maybe even have had a crush on one at some point in your life. I mean, who wouldn’t swoon over Hercules’ muscles or Prince Eric’s jawline? 

But mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the hottest of them all? If only we had Snow White to be the judge — she’d be the fairest of them all! 


Using a list of 31 popular Disney characters, we surveyed 2,400 respondents in all 50 states through Prolific, asking them one question — which Disney character they have the biggest crush on. We determined clear winners in each state, along with how many states voted for that character the most. Read on to see what your state’s Disney character crush is!

Does your state’s crush match up with yours? Between Aladdin, Flynn Rider, Prince Eric, Mulan, General Li Shang, Megara, Tarzan, Beast, Jasmine, Ariel, and Kristoff, who would you choose? 

Rapunzel isn’t this popular Disney character’s only lover; according to the survey, a majority of the U.S. is crushing on Flynn Rider. 

Alabama, Colorado, Delaware, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, and South Carolina can officially form an Aladdin fan club. There’s something irresistible about this popular Disney character’s winning personality. Meanwhile, Oregon chose Aladdin’s beautiful counterpart, Princess Jasmine.

Arkansas, Idaho, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Washington just want to be a part of Prince Eric’s world. New Hampshire, on the other hand, wants to dive under the sea for Ariel. North Dakota was the only state to have a tie between the popular Disney characters Flynn Rider and Prince Eric.

Georgia, Hawaii, and New Mexico agreed they’d get down to business (to defeat the Huns) for General Li Shang, while Connecticut chose a strong-willed female counterpart, Mulan. Kentucky (Megara), Mississippi (Tarzan), and Vermont (Beast) are outliers, being the only states to choose these Disney characters.
