About This Quiz

For almost a century, Disney and its partners have created hundreds of characters, many of which are still popular today. While everyone knows the princesses, princes and villains, not everyone knows the supporting members - especially those from the movies which aren't as popular. 

Disney characters come from different races, places in the world and walks of life. There are those which have come from the plant and animal kingdom, as well as from outer space. There are even some who are robots or mere emotions, and some who are based on folklore and myths.

There are many quizzes and challenges out there which test your knowledge on all things Disney. As long as the company keeps on creating characters that are unique and that people can relate to, there will always be people eager to obsess over them. 

This quiz was created to see how much of a Disney fan you really are, because not everyone will be able to identify most of these characters correctly. Will you be able to identify at least 33 of them? Only a true Disney fan can. Take this quiz to see if you can get them all right, or if you will have to go back to the drawing board.
