10. Carl and Ellie’s Montage
Although most of the film Up centers around a disgruntled old man and a young boy scout, there was not a dry eye in cinemas when the montage scene played depicting Ellie and Carl’s passionate lifelong romance. For a full five minutes, no words are spoken as we get to watch two people building a life together in one of Disney’s most powerful love scenes to date.
9. Beauty and the Beast’s First Dance
Few movies are able to establish romance as efficiently as Beauty and the Beast, and it all takes place during the ballroom scene. With an enchanting song, amazing architecture and a dress to die for, it’s not hard to see why this event sealed the deal for the unlikely pair.
8. Eve’s Life-Saving Kiss
True love’s kiss takes on an unexpected form in Wall-E but is hopelessly romantic nonetheless. In an attempt to fix Wall-E, Eve reboots him back to his original purpose of cleaning the planet, but has her heart broken when she realises that resetting him also reset his personality and affection for her. This event prompts Eve to realise her true feelings for Wall-E. To say goodbye, Eve leans in and kisses Wall-E who receives an electrical charge from the kiss and is immediately restored to his old self. There’s nothing more romantic than robot love.
7. Cinderella’s Shoe Fitting
The Prince’s dedication to finding his true love from the ball has been making girls swoon since the 1950s. How many of us are capable of making such a good impression at a party that we are searched for kingdom wide? One of the ultimate love stories, this moment where the shoe fits perfectly, never disappoints.
6. The Lantern Scene
This infamous scene from Tangled is one of the most enchanting scenes in the Disney canon. Set with a backdrop of floating lanterns that look like they have been painted in beautiful watercolours, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider slowly realise they are falling in love under an illuminated sky that eventually connects Rapunzel to her origins and to her true family.
5. Pocahontas Saving John Smith
While not quite historically accurate, this scene in Pocahontas solidifies the love that has been growing between John and Pocahontas throughout the film. In an act of courage and desperation, Pocahontas flings herself onto her lover just seconds before he is scheduled to be executed. While it’s not a scene full of hearts and flowers, it certainly depicts how strongly motivated one can become when they are driven by love.
4. Giselle and Robert’s Dance
The obvious attraction between two people has never been more poignant than in this scene from the live-action 2007 film Enchanted. Giselle and Robert, who are both engaged to other people, share a romantic dance at a ball where it becomes clear to everyone (including their partners) that they are in love. The song which is the backdrop to the scene also reflects their own awareness of their feelings making the scene all the more swoon-worthy.
3. Ariel Sings to Eric
Though Ariel was already in love with Eric when she was living in the sea, it was in the scene that we first see her feelings reciprocated. The lyrics for the reprisal of ‘Part of Your World’ that are sung by Ariel in this scene are very fitting:
I don't know when, I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see, someday I'll be part of your world
2. Robin Hood Hopes to Win the Kiss
One of the sweetest moments in Robin Hood is the scene where Robin is in disguise for the archery competition. The chemistry between the pair is undeniable, even though Robin is dressed up as a bird. So cute!
1. Hercules and Megara's Kiss
Nothing makes for good cinema like a tender kiss, which is why this kiss between Meg and Hercules takes out our number one spot. Also, can we just take a minute to realise that he gave up immortality and his position as a god to be with her!?
