Disney Princesses Questions

“She believed in dreams, all right, but she also believed in doing something about them. When Prince Charming didn't come along, she went over to the palace and got him.”

Walt Disney

Long hair.

A tiara.

Fabulous dresses.

Pensive eyes.

Several life obstacles.

A prince to long for.

This is usually what a stereotypical Disney princess’ life, appearance, and behavior are like. Disney princesses are the main symbol behind (almost) each Disney movie. They’re usually the main focus of the story, they have to overcome some challenges, and eventually mature further. After all, the whole Disney premise rests upon these princesses’ shoulders.

For instance, do you happen to know that Cinderella was Walt’s favorite princess? Or that Anna is the only Disney princess who has a duet with a villain? And Belle is the only person in her village who wears blue, which accentuates her individuality and outsider-like quality? Sleeping Beauty has just eighteen lines in the whole movie? Eighteen! And Jasmine and Mulan are probably the only princesses who wear pants (a contrast to the stereotypical description we just gave)?

That’s what makes them central to our article as well, and that’s why we start with questions about them first.

Answer: Princess Tiana.

  • What Disney princess has a tattoo?

  • What did the Fairy Godmother turn into a coach for Cinderella?

Answer: A pumpkin.

Disney Princes Questions

disney-princes

“If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?”

Walt Disney Company

Many believe the princesses overshadow the Disney princes; others believe the movies wouldn’t be what they are if it wasn’t for the presence of the princes.

Regardless of what group you resonate with more, one thing’s certain - almost every Disney princess has its Disney prince match. Although, we must say, certain Disney movies don’t have their main focus on this prince-princess relationship. One such example is Frozen, highlighting Ana and Elsa’s connection.

That said, this section is devoted to the Disney princes.

  • What’s Flynn's real name?

Answer: Eugene Fitzherbert.

  • In The Princess and the Frog, what country is Naveen the prince of?

Answer: Maldonia.

  • What prince is the only one who’s the main protagonist of a Disney movie?

Answer: Aladdin.

  • What's his first wish?

Answer: To be a prince.

  • In The Little Mermaid, what's the name of Eric's dog?

Answer: Max.

  • What prince didn’t have its human form for the longest time?

Answer: The Beast (from Beauty and the Beast).

  • In The Beauty and the Beast, how old is the Beast expected to be when the last petal falls?

Answer: 2-

  • In Sleeping Beauty, what’s the first name of the prince?

Answer: Philip.

  • In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, what's the prince's first name?

Answer: He doesn’t really have one.

  • What prince is the only one who doesn’t kiss their princess in the first movie?

Answer: Li Shang (from Mulan).

Disney Villains Questions

disney-villains

“Dear parents, Jasmine was in a relationship with a dirty homeless boy named Aladdin. Snow White lived alone with 7 men. Pinnochio was a liar. Robin Hood was a thief. Tarzan walked around without clothes on. A stranger kissed sleeping beauty and she married him. Cinderella lied and snuck out at night to attend a party. You can't blame us. We were taught to rebel since a young age.”

Walt Disney Company

Villains are always perceived as those who need to be eliminated, “handled” in some way, or simply hated.

And while we don’t deny or confirm this (we believe it’s up to individual interpretation and approach), we do have something to add: the Disney stories wouldn’t be nearly as successful as they are, if they didn’t include their fair share of villains.

For instance, can you imagine the 101 Dalmations without Cruella de Vil, her short-temper personality, impulsive and sometimes reckless behavior, and unusual hair? Or The Little Mermaid without Ursula? Without her malicious laugh, devious plans, and scary appearance?

What about Scar in The Lion King? Would the audience be so connected to the story and the loss it manages to convey without Scar being “there” to trigger it in the first place?

Indeed, Disney villains, along with their motifs and actions may be tough to swallow, but they do have an important place in the Disney movies. Therefore, they have a special place in our Disney trivia article as well.

  • What is the Evil Fairy's name in Sleeping Beauty?

Answer: Maleficent.

  • What name does Ursula take when disguised as a human?

Answer: Vanessa.

  • What does Ursula steal from Ariel?

Answer: Her voice.

  • Who is the villain in Aladdin?

Answer: Jafar.

  • What’s the name of Simba’s villainous uncle from The Lion King?

Answer: Scar.

  • Who’s the main villain in Pocahontas?

Answer: Governor John Ratcliffe.

  • What does the evil queen tell the huntsman to bring her after killing Snow White?

Answer: Her heart.

  • Do you recall the villain from the film 101 Dalmatians?

Answer: Cruella de Vil.

  • Can you name the villain from Peter Pan?

Answer: Captain Hook.

  • What’s the villain from Beauty & the Beast called?

Answer: Gaston.

  • Can you name the villain from The Hunchback of Notre Dame?

Answer: Monseigneur Claude Frollo.

Disney Locations Questions

disney-locations

“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water. Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?”

Walt Disney

When we talk about Disney locations, we usually talk about magical, wonderful, and surreal scenery and locations. It really isn’t something one can explain or properly describe - it’s truly a thing one visually sees. Period.

That said, there are certain Disney movies that drew inspiration from the real world - cities, villages, and countries. In other words, they’re not as abstract or unreal as one might expect them to be, as we actually get to see them on a daily basis. But we still dare claim they look much more enchanting in the Disney movies than what they do in real life. Here are some such locations:

  • Kauai, Hawaii;

  • Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland;

  • Chateau de Chambord, France;

  • Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland;

  • Festival of Lights, Thailand;

  • The Taj Mahal, India;

  • Notre Dame Cathedral, France;

  • The Forbidden City, China;

  • Route 66, USA;

  • and New Orleans, Louisiana.

And while we realize that no explanation can do these locations proper justice, our Disney trivia questions may at least try.

  • The Princess and the Frog is set in which city?

Answer: New Orleans.

  • Quasimodo was a bell-ringer of which famous cathedral?

Answer: Notre Dame.

  • What’s the “cutest little town” in Carburetor County called?

Answer: Radiator Springs.

  • What French town is said to have inspired Beauty and the Beast?

Answer: Riquewihr.

  • Where does the majority of Up take place?

Answer: In Venezuela.

  • Where does Hercules take place?

Answer: In Greece.

  • Where does Brave take place?

Answer: In Scotland.

  • What country does The Jungle Book take place in?

Answer: In India.

  • What city does 101 Dalmatians take place in?

Answer: In London.

Disney Colors Questions

disney-colors

“Papa! You painted my nose!"

"I certainly did," her father said.

"But why?" Belle tried to see the purple dot on her face.

Maurice grinned. "Because that mark makes you even more beautiful. Different and special from the inside out, just like your fantastic doll. And just like your mother, who you look and act more like every day."

Belle eyed her father suspiciously. "A purple mark does all that?"

"Yes. Because it's yours and only yours," Maurice said.”

What makes a Disney character attractive or repelling?

What makes them good or bad?

And what makes them joyous or sad?

There are many factors that contribute to this, however, the colors used in each movie not only set the overall tone, but shape the main characters, too. If you analyze the color infographic, you’ll see how much sense it actually makes.

Namely, Shan Yu, Mor’ Du, Ursula, Yokai, Claude Frollo, and Captain Gantu embody evil and darkness. Therefore, they’re depicted wearing black (or there’s some black aspect to them).

Next, Maleficent, Anna, the Evil Queen, Emperor Zurg, Aladdin, Randall Boggs are represented with the color purple. Purple is said to denote qualities such as power, nobility, luxury, and ambition.

Alice, Hades, Aurora, Cinderella, Elsa, and Stitch go with the color blue. This color stands for stability, confidence, loyalty, and trust.

In general, colors affect how not only how we perceive these characters, but how we receive their overall message, too.

And while discussing Disney colors may seem trivial and even weird at first, we hope now it makes sense. After all, we believe making colors part of our Disney trivia article is anything but trivial or weird.

  • In Alice in Wonderland, what color does the Queen of Hearts want her roses in?

Answer: Red.

  • What’s Ariel’s hair color in The Little Mermaid?

Answer: Red.

  • What color was Rapunzel's hair before it was cut?

Answer Blonde.

  • What color is Winnie the Pooh’s shirt?

Answer: Red.

  • What color is Alice’s dress in Alice in Wonderland?

Answer: Blue (with a white apron).

  • What color is Peter Pan’s hat?

Answer: Green.

  • In The Little Mermaid, what color are Flounder's stripes?

Answer: Blue.

  • What color is Tinkerbell’s dress?

Answer: Green.

  • Can you remember Aladdin’s vest color?

Answer: Purple.

  • Can you recall Woody’s vest color in the Toy Story movies (hint: it’s two colors)?

Answer: Black and white.

Disney Animals Questions

disney-animals

“You know, I was stumped one day when a little boy asked, 'Do you draw Mickey Mouse?' I had to admit I do not draw any more. 'Then you think up all the jokes and ideas?' 'No,' I said 'I don't do that.' Finally, he looked at me and said: 'Mr . Disney, just what do you do?' 'Well,' I said, 'Sometimes I think of myself as a little bee. I go from one area of the studio to another and gather pollen and sort of stimulate everybody. I guess that's the job I do.”

Walt Disney

Animals are an important part of every Disney story, so who are we to neglect them in our Disney trivia article?

In essence, Disney animals can be both cute and intimidating, friendly and hostile, and cute and weird. However, what usually matters is how they relate to the story, contribute to it, and interact with the rest of the characters in the movie. Here are some of the best Disney animal characters of all times:

  • HeiHei;

  • Scuttle;

  • Gus Gus;

  • Abu;

  • Thumper;

  • The Cheshire Cat;

  • Baloo;

  • Eeyore;

  • Sven;

  • Dug;

  • Pumba, and so on.

In addition, it’s certainly up to each person watching the movie to make up their mind about how they perceive a specific Disney animal. Sometimes things are straightforward - for instance, in The Little Mermaid, it’s clear that Sebastian, a crab, and Flounder, a tropical yellow fish, are both good guys. In other words, they’re team Ariel, and not team Ursula.

However, things are not always so clear, at least, not right away. For example, in Tangled, Maximus, a horse, starts out as a very strict character (almost like a villain), although deep down he has a soft heart. And this is brought more to the fore as the movie progresses.

  • In Peter Pan, what’s the name of Wendy’s dog?

Answer: Nana.

  • In The Jungle Book, Mowgli was raised by what animals?

Answer: Wolves.

  • In Tangled, how’s Rapunzel’s chameleon called?

Answer: Pascal.

  • In Aladdin, how is princess Jasmine’s tiger named?

Answer: Rajah.

  1. Duchess is a mother to exactly how many kittens in The Aristocats?

Answer: Three (Marie, Toulouse, and Berlioz).

  • In Finding Nemo, what does Dory suffer from?

Answer: Short-term memory loss.

  • What type of insect is Flik in A Bug’s Life?

Answer: Ant.

  • What kind of pet did Geppetto have in Pinocchio and what was its name?

Answer: A cat named Figaro.

  • What are the names of Ursula’s minions (eels) in The Little Mermaid?

Answer: Flotsam and Jetsam.

  • Can you recall the name of the whale that swallowed Pinocchio?

Answer: Monstro.

Walt Disney Questions

We can’t give you a high-quality Disney trivia article without devoting a whole section to the person behind the whole Disney franchise - Walt Disney himself.

Walt Disney Company

Can you imagine the Disney movies without their respective Disney songs? These epic melodies sure deserve to have their own category on our trivia questions list, so brace yourselves for some fun, lyrics-based questions.

And while you and your team won’t be required to sing the lines, you’ll definitely need to remember which Disney movie they’re from.

Disney Food Questions

disney-food

"You know the thing about good food? It brings folks together from all walks of life. It warms them right up and it puts little smiles on their faces, I tell you, people are gonna line up for miles around, just to get a taste of my food. [...]"

The Princess and the Frog

Disney movies aren’t just about princesses reuniting with their princes, singing lovely songs, facing evil villains, or fighting to save one’s kingdom/village.

It’s also about enjoying one of the most exciting meals. And for some Disney movies it’s about preparing them, too!

Plus, it’s not only about the actual meals - it’s about the food scenes which take place throughout the movies as well. Namely, very important events and moments happen right during an important feast. Remember the dinner scene from Brave which shows us family dinners are the same regardless of whether you’re in fictional medieval Scotland or the 21st century? How about Mike and Celi’s sushi date from Monsters Inc.? Breakfast with Mushu in Mulan? Or Remy in Ratatouille, preparing a meal for Anton Ego, the infamous restaurant critic?

So, this final questions section is devoted to Disney trivia questions dealing with well-known meals, food places, and food-related details which appear throughout the movies.

  • In The Princess and the Frog, which classic New Orleans dessert does Tiana serve Mr. La Bouff during dinner?

Answer: Beignets.

  • In Lady and the Tramp, what Italian dish do the two dogs share?

Answer: Spaghetti with meatballs.

  • What’s the name of the Italian restaurant where they eat?

Answer: Tony’s Restaurant.

  • In Alice in Wonderland, how many colorful cookies does Alice end up eating at The White Rabbit's house?

Answer: Just one cookie.

  • In Beauty and the Beast, what's the first item of food Lumière sings about in the song "Be Our Guest"?

Answer: Soup du jour.

  • In Ratatouille, what's the name of the "special order" Linguini has to prepare on the spot?

Answer: Pizza Planet.

  • In Sleeping Beauty, the fairies decide to bake a cake for Princess Aurora’s birthday. How many layers is the cake supposed to be?

Answer: 15.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What am I supposed to use such Disney trivia questions for?

If you watch(ed) Disney movies to relax and enjoy yourself, it’s only natural to engage in a Disney trivia game to achieve more or less the same. And that applies to corporate contexts, too.

Hosting a Disney trivia game (or any other trivia, for that matter) is a great activity for team-building events, spontaneous after-work gatherings, or even during office breaks. It also depends on how your company prefers to handle such informal activities. In other words, there’s not a strict role which states where and when they should be used.

Online Escape Rooms

That said, we do believe we can give you some suggestions. For example, if you and your team are fond of escape room games and trivia, why not combine them in a way which you find the most suitable? You can pick questions from our Disney trivia list, and then choose an adequate escape room game.

While there are many great escape rooms out there, it’s only logical to find a Disney-themed one for this purpose. Here’s one idea you and your team may consider: Seven Dwarfs: Mining Mission Escape room. What we like about this online escape room is that it re-imagines the original Disney story by putting it in another (future) context:

One year has passed since the seven dwarves helped Snow White defeat the evil queen, and now they’ve retired to a quiet cottage deep in the forest. But happily ever after is never that easy, and evil is rising once again! The evil queen’s followers plan to use the poison apple to bring about her malevolent return. Snow White has tasked you to destroy the devious fruit once and for all, and rumour has it that the only way to rid the world of its evil is to cast it into the very centre of the earth.

Hosting a Quiz

Apart from choosing an online escape room game and adding a Disney trivia game in the mix, you may wish to focus only on hosting a quiz. This is a much more competitive approach, as it requires more background Disney knowledge, and it also encourages team members to fight for the first place (we suggest offering first, second, and third place, and choosing adequate rewards as well). It’s up to you whether you’d like to disclose the rewards before the actual trivia game starts, or afterward. Also, you need to decide on how “serious” the rewards should be - for instance, are they going to be money prices, gift vouchers, or something entirely different? What’s more, if you end up giving out money prices, you may even include a charitable cause - winners may donate their money to a specific institution, or a person in need. That way, the quiz takes a whole new level (and a whole new meaning for the participants, too).

Virtual parties are also a great occasion to host a nice Disney trivia game. They’re supposed to be fun, relaxing, and enjoyable for the attendees. We promise you and your team will feel like big kids playing Disney trivia (in a good way, of course).

And if you’re not a fan of virtual parties - you may host such a quiz at a local pub or even in the office.

Bonus - A Disney Cooking Activity

Disney trivia questions can be used alongside other activities. We already gave you the online escape room idea as well as the quiz one, however, if you’re up for more ideas, we do have an extra one.

Namely, if you want to take your Disney trivia game to the next level, you may decide to include a bit of cooking in it. For instance, you may host a Disney trivia game, pick a wide range of questions (mainly focusing on the Disney Food Questions section), and after the trivia engage in cooking Disney foods.

What we mean by this is preparing meals which appear in Disney movies. You may even cook in teams, cook individually, and each team/person can prepare the same meal or you may give different people different recipes. You could even come up with rewards for those who fish first, second, or third, or if you want you may decide to reward the ones who prepare the tastiest food instead.

Additionally, keep in mind that by Disney cooking we really refer to the act of cooking. We don’t mean buying a baguette such as the stolen one from Aladdin or preparing a basic meal such as spaghetti and meatballs from Lady and the Tramp.

We want to encourage you and your team to actually prepare something more complex on your own, yet based on Disney.

Below, we share our suggestions to get you started, but feel free to expand the list further.

  1. The Cheese Soufflé from Beauty and the Beast

Do you recall the cheese soufflé from the movie Beauty and the Beast? How would you and your team feel about making it? And even better - eating it at work in the office, at home, or wherever you may find yourselves (could be a team-building weekend abroad, for instance).

  1. Tiana’s Beignets from The Princess and the Frog

No one prepares beignets quite like Tiana in The Princess and the Frog does, but maybe you and your team could outdo her?

  1. Snow White’s Gooseberry Pie from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Remember the love that Snow White prepared the pie with? Do you think you and your team have what it takes to replicate it?

If you do, here’s what you need to get started:

  1. The Magical Cookies from Alice in Wonderland

While it’s true that many people enjoy eating cookies, few might enjoy having to make them. The question is whether you’re fond of making them? More specifically, if you’re ready and willing to put in the work and produce the well-known magical cookies from Alice in Wonderland?

And while they probably won’t make you grow such as Alice (she started to grow after eating one, remember?), they’ll certainly make your stomachs happy.

Finally, we invite you to check out the website links we left with each recipe where you can see the ingredients and go through the instructions to prepare the foods properly.

Also, make sure that most people on the team agree with the food being cooked - you don’t want to end up preparing something most team members aren’t fond of, or worse, something that contains ingredients they may be allergic to.

  • How should I choose the right Disney trivia questions?

The trickiest thing that can happen while you’re choosing the Disney questions for your trivia event is to be subjective. What do we mean by this?

Well, when you’re trying to choose the right Disney questions, you may be doing so based on your personal preferences. In other words, you might wish to include more questions from your own favorite Disney movie. And vice versa - you’ll wish to exclude questions which deal with your least favorite Disney movie.

And while there isn’t one way or a specific mechanism you can apply to choose the right Disney trivia questions, you can start by being as impartial as possible. This means including questions from a wide range of Disney movies. So instead of including 60% of Cinderella questions, 30% from Frozen, and an additional 10% from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, try to come up with a more balanced approach.

Also, don’t forget to include questions from a wide range of categories. For instance, it’d make no sense to host a Disney trivia game which contains only questions about Disney princes, or Disney food. Like we said, a balanced approach is the way to go.

Finally, don’t feel uncomfortable asking your employees about their preferences directly. In fact, this is something we always recommend! Once you know you’re planning a Disney trivia game, it’s only natural to try to make it as enjoyable as you possibly can. And sometimes the way to do so is to go directly to the people you’re trying to “please” and make happy with the trivia game itself.

So, don’t be shy and initiate a Disney discussion with your employees - you may be surprised to see where it takes you.

  • What if (some of) my employees aren’t fond of Disney?

It may be hard to imagine someone disliking Disney, but in all truth it’s not impossible. And when you have an office full of employees with different needs, wishes, passions, and interests, you have to be open to everything.

While discussing Disney with your workers may seem somewhat unusual, discussing a potential Disney trivia game makes it much more acceptable.

That said, some employees might openly say they dislike Disney, don’t feel quite familiar with the movies, or simply hate it altogether.

So, if you’re planning a Disney trivia game, how should you talk to an employee who doesn’t like Disney?

First and foremost, don’t show any negative feelings about it. And don’t give comments such as “Did you have a childhood?”, “How is that even possible?”, “Everyone likes Disney.”, and so on.

Next, don’t assume that just because someone doesn’t like Disney, they won’t participate in a Disney trivia game. They might be put in a group with team members who like Disney and are quite knowledgeable. After all, it’s all about the bonding experience and employees collaborating with one another (hello, employee engagement!).

Then, don’t force someone to get acquainted with Disney just for the sake of participating in the Disney trivia game. You may indirectly guide someone towards a Disney movie they might like based on a specific subject, character, or animal they could be fond of. However, don’t impose your Disney views on someone who doesn’t quite seem keen to go along with the Disney narrative. If they have questions or wish to learn more, however, then that’s an entirely different situation.

Also, keep in mind not to spoil things when you talk about Disney movies to someone who expresses enthusiasm to actually see them. For instance, saying that Mufasa dies in The Lion King, Cinderella gets the prince, Encanto has a happy ending, and so on, can really put someone off from watching the movies.

Finally, discussing Disney matters with your employees and learning why they dislike such movies helps you learn what it is they, in fact, truly like and are passionate about. This is useful on so many levels - one being that it can help you plan the content for your next trivia game in a much smoother way.

Final Words

To sum up, Disney trivia questions can be a refreshing corporate addition to your office for a wide range of informal events. It’s up to you and your employees when and where you decide to implement them.

And while these 101 Disney trivia questions may not necessarily make you a Disney expert or a Disneyland tour guide, they’re sure going to help you have some fun and even win your next trivia game!
