The Five Most Romantic Disney Couples

Lady and the Tramp Chocolate Easter Egg at the Grand Floridian

Valentine’s Day is almost here and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than by watching a romantic movie with the one you love. 

No one does romance like Disney!  When I hear the word romance a Disney couple always pops into my head! 

Today we are celebrating our writers' five favorite romantic couples.  You may not agree with all of our picks but we are sure you'll agree that there is no shortage of romantic duos in the Disney family. Narrowing down our choices was hard but we like a good challenge. 

1. Carl and Ellie:  

This couple set the bar pretty high in the love/romance department

In 8 minutes, Pixar tells us one of the most beautiful love stories ever. Carl and Ellie meet as kids, bond over their love of adventure, fall in love, get married and make a life together. Their dreams of a family are shattered, but their love never fails them. Even after Ellie’s death, Carl still looks to make her happy and make her dreams come true.

2. Wall-E and Eve:

All he wants is to hold her hand

Wall-E is a hopeless romantic who makes everyone he comes in contact with happy. He is sweet, innocent and longs to hold Eve’s hand. Finding Eve makes Wall-E realize he is not always going to be alone, and deep down that is something we all worry about. When Eve sees the recording of all the things Wall-E did for her while she was “asleep,” she realizes how much she cares for him.

3: Aladdin and Jasmine:

Do you trust me?

When Princess Jasmine runs away from her palace and gets in trouble at the marketplace, Aladdin comes to her rescue. Before he even knows she is the princess, he has fallen in love with her. Jasmine is in awe is of his simple lifestyle and freedom. They both long for a life different from their own. The two fall for each other from the start and even finish each other’s sentences.

4. Rapunzel and Flynn:

Sigh... the way he looks at her!

My heart melts every time I watch Tangled and Flynn finally falls for Rapunzel. The way he looks at Rapunzel is the way every girl dreams someone will look at her! Flynn is the definition of smolder!  Flynn gives Rapunzel the courage to follow her dream and Rapunzel shows Flynn that there is a lot more to life than money. When he tells her “you were my new dream,” I sob.

5. George and Meg: 

You never know where you will find the love of your life 

The first time I watched Paperman, I sobbed. Truth is, I cried the second and third times as well. George falls in love with Meg at first sight and in just six minutes we watch him risk his job to get the attention of the beautiful stranger he saw on the train platform.  If you have not seen this Academy Award winning Disney Short the time is now!
