It’s true that Disney creates some of the most beautiful love stories that have ever been told. While some Disney couples are star-crossed and meant-to-be, there are also some that are pulled together by the most unusual of circumstances. No matter the origin, there’s nothing more magical than the Disney couples that against all odds, show us that true love is real and that happiness is around the corner when we least expect it. Here are 10 Disney couples that will give you serious relationship goals…
Mickey and Minnie
This the ultimate #relationshipgoals MVP Disney couple. Together since Minnie’s first appearance in a 1929 short called “Plane Crazy,” this dream Disney couple has spent the last 89 years together. While never married onscreen, in a 1933 interview with Walt Disney, he admitted that “in private life, Mickey is married to Minnie.” A love that lasts the test of time and one of the most recognizable couples in the world, romance would cease to exist without the love between Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Lady and The Tramp
Unlike most of the early Disney couples, Lady and The Tramp started without instant starry eyes and actually was focused around telling the story of their romance. Lady and The Tramp both come from differing backgrounds and naturally, opposites attract. It’s through their adventures, misunderstandings, challenges that a sweet, little romance begins (spaghetti, anyone?) as they influence positive changes within one another.
WallE and Eve
An unexpected romance by Pixar, the story of WALLE and EVE is one of wonder and hope with equally geeky comedic value. The love unfolds as WALLE, the robot of yesterday, charms the sleek and top-of-the-line EVE. Resulting in counter-rescues, traveling beyond borders to be with each other and an onscreen kiss with so much sparkle that it, you can’t help but swoon over the #relationshipgoals this adorable robotic couple will make you want for your own romance.
Hercules and Meg
While the story of this romance doesn’t actually begin with the two lovers on the same side, it shows that love overcomes all. Burnt by love once before and losing her soul over it, Meg ignores her vulnerability and loved again leading her to put her own life on the line in order to protect Hercules. In kind, Hercules spent the entire storyline working to be with his family again, only to give it up to spend the rest of his life as a mortal with the woman he loves. Hercules and Meg are the couple who would do anything for one another, no matter the risk, because “people do crazy things when they are in love.”
