Rapunzel has ‘magic hair that goals when she sings’

But that’s not all. Rapunzel’s hair has the power of a magical healing flower, which can make people appear younger when she sings. When she cries, though, Rapunzel’s tears have the same impact, even healing her “new dream,” Flynn Rider, after he died. 

Rapunzel can also work her way around a frying pan. Plus, with so much time on her hands, she picked up a few skills and hobbies over the years. She can bake, chart stars, make candles, and even use her hair to swing around her tower. 

Elsa from ‘Frozen’ has ice powers

Of course, one of the most powerful princesses, technically, isn’t even a Disney princess. Elsa becomes the queen of Arandelle once her parents die but, unfortunately, she had a pretty big secret hidden from her people. 

Elsa has the ability to create snow and ice from her hands, even building a magical snowman named Olaf. In the second Frozen movie, this character learns to communicate with other elemental spirits, even becoming the fifth spirit herself.

The ocean chose Moana to restore the heart of Te Fiti 

Although she technically can’t control the ocean, she can communicate with it. When Moana was just a baby, the ocean chose her to restore the heart of Te Fiti. Throughout the rest of the movie, Moana goes on an adventure with a demigod to help her family and her island. She even communicates with her favorite rooster, Hei Hei, which is pretty magical.

Snow White, Ariel, and Pocahontas can talk to animals 

Even the first Disney princess had some pretty amazing powers. Thanks to her kind heart, Snow White was able to talk to animals. She wouldn’t be the last princess to do so, as The Little Mermaid, also known as Ariel, talked to underwater animals throughout her movie. 

Even when she’s on land with her brand new legs, Ariel is still able to talk to her best friends Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle. There are a few other princesses that can speak to animals and connect with nature, though. 

Pocahontas also has the ability to speak foreign languages, even communicating with John Smith as soon as she meets him. She can talk to animals, as well as her “Grandmother Willow,” a tree near her home.
