One great way to show your love of a favorite Disney princesses is with a Christmas tree ornament. Whether you’re the princess fan yourself, giving these as gifts, or both, here are lovely ornaments to choose from. The list starts with ornaments of individual princesses, then finishes with a few different Disney princess sets.
Just for fun, I added a trivia fact about each individual princess’s movie.
Beauty and the Beast Disney Keepsake Ornament
This is a gorgeous keepsake ornament commemorating the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. It is just over five inches tall and plays about thirty seconds of the song “Tale as Old as Time” when you press a button near the Beast’s feet. (Two small round batteries are included in the box to insert into the ornament.)
The scene depicts Belle in her yellow dress and the Beast in his blue coat dancing in front of a stained glass window — but be aware that this ornament does not light up, as some reviewers were thinking that it might. Also, there is a loop for hanging the ornament on the very top of the window that you can slip a hook through to hang, but it does not come with any attached hook or string.
Beauty and the Beast Trivia: The dance between Belle and her Prince at the end of the movie is reused animation of the dance between Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip in the Disney movie Sleeping Beauty.
Cinderella Disney Princess Christmas Ornament
Hallmark came out with this special “The Clock Strikes Twelve” ornament to celebrate Cinderella’s 65th anniversary, It captures the classic moment of Cinderella running down the stairs, leaving her shoe behind.
Like most of the Magic Cord ornaments, this one has a nice, big base, so you can set it out to display anywhere you desire. If you want to hang it on your tree, you’ll find the loop is in Cinderella’s back, and you need a long hook to even be able to hang it from your tree. It does tip forward a little, but the tip isn’t as bad as I remember it being.
This ornament includes lights in the clock tower and a sound clip from the movie, but be aware that you need to purchase a Hallmark Magic Cord, sold separately, for it to work.
Cinderella Trivia: Originally there was going to be a scene of Cinderella returning home after the ball and eavesdropping on her step-family’s discussion about the mystery girl, but it was cut because Walt Disney thought it might make Cinderella seem smug and mean-spirited.
Disney Princess Elsa Christmas Ornament
This ornament depicts Elsa as she looks in the movie Frozen instead of the more cartoony version of her that you sometimes see. Even though this is advertised as a Hallmark ornament and shows the Hallmark logo in the image, there was some disagreement among reviewers over whether or not it truly was a Hallmark ornament, so do be aware of that if that’s a deal breaker for you.
Frozen Trivia: The characters of Hans, Kristoff, Anna and Sven are a reference to Hans Christian Andersen, the author of The Snow Queen. Clever, huh?
Disney Princess Snow White Christmas Ornament
This is a lovely ornament of Snow White with her bluebird friend perched on her hand. It is five and a quarter inches high and comes with a satin ribbon for hanging.
Snow White trivia: There were five scenes that were planned, but never fully animated. The video clip below, “Magic in Your Soup,” is one of them.
Snow White deleted scene — “Magic in Your Soup”
Rapunzel Disney Princess Christmas Ornament
This beautiful ornament has a button on the base that, when you push it, plays Rapunzel singing “When Will My Life Begin” from the movie Tangled. The back of the ornament shows her long hair trailing down and her bare feet.
Tangled Trivia: Animators have said that Rapunzel’s hair is approximately 70 feet and consists of about 100,000 strands. If that were true, it would weigh approximately ten and a half pounds.
Ariel and Prince Eric Christmas Ornament
Amazon reviewer E. Step described this Ariel ornament as “non-creepy” and said, “After spending the better part of a month looking among the card store offerings, we both decided that whomever at Disney / card company approved the faces of Ariel has no idea what a person should look like. This ornament is far better, solid paint quality on the piece. nice weight, shipped securely and quickly.
Ariel Trivia: Ariel was deliberately made a redhead in order to distinguish her from Daryl Hannah’s mermaid character in the Tom Hanks movie Splash. And Jodi Benson, the voice actress for Ariel, recorded the song “Part of the Your World” in the dark to give an underwater feel.
Jasmine “Disney Shoe” Ornament
For Jasmine’s ornament I decided to do something a little different. This is one of many in the “Disney Shoe” line of ornaments where the shoe represents the character and the bottom of the shoes feature both the printed character and the artist signature. I particularly like how this incorporates Jasmine’s braid into the shoe design. If you like the look of these, there are also shoe ornaments for Ariel, Belle, and Tiana, among others.
Set of 7 Disney Princess Ornaments
These seven colorful Disney princess ornaments are made of shatterproof PVC. The set includes Belle, Aurora, Mulan, Pocahantas, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Cinderella, so it’s a varied mix of princesses. They are sturdy and not easily breakable, which is probably a good things because I could see little girls wanting to take them off to look at them or move them several times. They are slightly on the heavy side, so they might not work well for a small, table-top Christmas tree.
This comes with a nice gift box, so it would make a great Christmas gift for a Disney princess lover. Another possible option, if you know several princess fans, is to repackage them individually or in smaller groups and make gifts for three or more different people depending on which princess they like the most.
Set of Fillable Disney Princess Christmas Ornaments
This set comes with 25 three-inch plastic ball ornaments that can be opened and then filled with candies or little trinkets. Disney princesses featured include Ariel, Jasmine, Cinderella, and TIana.
Set of Small Disney Princess Christmas Ornaments
These five ornaments are made of thin plastic and have a thin gold-colored string attached to each of them for hanging. The princesses include Cinderella, Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Rapunzel. Since they are “small and cute” and not very expensive, they might work well for a child’s stocking stuffer, a very small Disney-themed tree, or preschool classroom decorations.
I hope this post helps you find the perfect Disney princess ornament for your Christmas tree this year. In closing, here’s a clip of the song “The Beauty of the Season.”
