(*Note, I comprised this list of where they would be born and raised from, not where they would be most suited as a free choosing adult. That is another list - coming soon as additions are being made. 😊 PS: If this post sounds familiar, it's because it used to just include the Princesses but I decided to add the other Disney females to the list!)
For the sake of organization, I have chosen to divide the characters by "regions", which include: Pacific, Rocky Mountain, Southwest/Desert, Midwest, Northeast & Southeast (there are pictures to show which specific states are included in these regions.)
Anita: San Francisco, California
"San Francisco, in northern California, is a hilly city on the tip of a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. It's known for its year-round fog, iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and colorful Victorian houses." (Very similar to London.) A perfect city for Anita to walk her dog and encourage her husband's music career.
Honorary Mention - Anastasia Romanov: Anchorage, Alaska
"Anchorage is the place where young spirits and adventurous souls come to play. Alaska activities including famous wildlife, spectacular mountain vistas, fascinating cultures and icy blue glaciers all await your discovery. Metropolitan luxuries mix with unrivaled natural wonders to make Anchorage an unforgettable destination." (Similar to Russia.)
Mulan: Seattle, Washington
Seattle leans progressive but also has a moderate balance (somewhat similar to Mulan's family) with an emphasis on education (and Mulan is very smart), and it also has one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in the country (and there were lots of farms around Mulan).
Nani & Lilo: Honolulu, Hawaii
The movie covered this one. 😊
Elsa & Anna: Salem, Oregon
Close to beautiful waterfalls and other natural land space, Salem offers a lot of historical and cultural sites to check out - including art museums and theaters.. We didn't get to see much of Arendelle, but it's easy to imagine it was a place much like this.
Moana: Maui, Hawaii
Even though the film was supposed to be in Polynesia, it seems a lot of the inspiration actually came from Maui in Hawaii. (Just look at the pictures.) There are also plenty of boating and sailing tours here.
Rocky Mountain Region
Snow White: Boise, Idaho
"Welcome to the City of Trees. Boise has an independence and creative spirit not found in many cities." This city puts a high value on family, community and character - just like Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. Speaking of the dwarfs, there's even the Idaho Museum of Mining & Geology (IMMG) which "offers exhibits and educational programs about Idaho’s fascinating geologic history and rich mining heritage".
Ariel, Andrina, Adella, Arista, Aquata, Alana & Attina: Missoula, Montana
"Nestled among converging mountain ranges, Missoula, a former lumber town, recently woke up to find it had become a hipster utopia. How did it happen? Could it be the growing presence of the University of Montana? The plethora of artists who hang out downtown? The two big documentary film festivals?" Even though this place is pretty isolated, it still has it's own lively culture - much like Atlantica. Furthermore, a film festival and "artistic" influence would help explain Ariel's desire to venture out; as well as her sisters' lack of desire to leave. (After all, when it comes to any of these kinds of small towns, more people do tend to stay, rather than leave.)
