I think a person’s favorite Disney character gives a glimpse into who you are, or who you aspire to be. Are you prim and proper like Mary Poppins or bold like Nemo? Are you sly like the Cheshire Cat or glum like Eeyore?

Who is YOUR favorite Disney character and what does it say about you?

Naughty, Nice or Weird?

To enter the Travel Mamas Disney Paint Giveaway, entrants told us their favorite Disney character. Most of you chose a “good” character like Mickey Mouse or Snow White. Some of you must have a naughty streak, selecting villains like Maleficent, Cruella DeVille and Captain Hook. Others like to march to the beat of their own Electric Parade, choosing unusual Disney characters like Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast, Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio, Baloo from The Jungle Book and even the alligator from Peter Pan.

Top 5 favorite Disney characters

I tallied up the results of our own survey of sorts. Here is who won our Disney character popularity contest.

1. A solid, yet predictable choice…Mickey Mouse
