Disney Females: Born and Raised in America Part 2/3

What if all of the Disney Females were from American cities? Which ones would they be from?
(*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.)

Southwest/Desert Region

Tiger Lily: Santa Fe, New Mexico

Tinkerbell: Las Vegas, Nevada

"Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort city famed for its vibrant nightlife, centered around 24-hour casinos and other entertainment options." Just like Neverland, it's a place for "all fun, all of the time" - and also like Neverland, there's not a lot of responsibility and/or parenting going on.

Jasmine: Tuscon, Arizona

"Tuscon has many... vintage shops, nightclubs and restaurants..." Tuscon is a cultured city in the middle of the desert, just like Agrabah. Most people there are still pretty conservative overall, but the youth tend to be a little more on the moderate or even progressive side - also similar to Agrabah.

Midwest Region:

Shanti: Athens, Ohio

Athens is a small town, located along the Hocking River (just like Shanti's village). While they don't have a ton of culture to offer, they do have an annual Halloween block party - a great place to tell stories like Mowgli's at the beginning of Jungle Book 2!

Eilonwy: Rapid City/Black Hills, South Dakota

"To the east lie the mysterious Badlands; to the north stands Devils Tower; turn south to Wind or Jewel Cave National Parks, Custer State Park, or Crazy Horse Mountain carving now in progress; or head 23 miles to majestic Mount Rushmore." All of these nearby locations fit with the various locations in the Black Cauldron: Pyrdain, the Horned King's Castle, the kingdom of the Fair Folk (fairies), the Marshes of Morva, etc.

Belle: Cody, Nebraska

A very small village, pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with little to offer beyond camping, farming or natural views. Sounds a lot like the place Belle comes from, showing why she had such a desire to see the world beyond this small place.

Ting-Ting, Mei & Su: Indianapolis, Indiana

Indianapolis is a mainly conservative place - just like where these princesses were raised. From the largest single-day sporting event in the world to the largest children’s museum in the world, it's easy to see that Indianapolis' culture thrives on being tough and family-oriented, responsible and dutiful. This perfectly matches these princesses and the way they were raised as well.
