Thursday kind of got away from us this week; so in place of our typical "Thirsty Thursday" post, we present our take on the age-old classic "Thank God It's Friday," or "TGIF." In honor of what is arguably the best day of the work week, take a gander at our picks for most swoon-worthy Disney men.

1. Prince Eric, The Little Mermaid

By far my favorite Disney man, Prince Eric was the first animated man (besides Prince Darien from the Sailor Moon anime/manga series) to show me that guys can change. Sure, his relationship with Ariel started out with him being attracted to her physical beauty, but it ended up with his realization that he really loved her for her voice. He fell in love with the woman who saved him, and spent the rest of the movie trying to find her!

2. Li Shang, Mulan

Strong, handsome, and unafraid to tell you how it is. Who woudn't love Li Shang? Even after he found out Mulan's true female identity, he still acknowledged her ability to fight and handle herself. The woman saved China, for crying out loud! He's my #2 Disney man because he can handle himself, take charge of a situation, and still give other people their due.

3. Aladdin, Aladdin

While somewhat misguided about how to win Jasmine's heart, Aladdin is a man willing to take matters into his own hands. Granted, he steals from others to support himself, but he only steals what he needs to survive. Even after Jasmine outs him, all he wants is to earn her respect...and save her from Jafar's mad quest for power. But through it all, he respects Jasmine's desire for freedom and her open nature. Any man who can see past the tokens and titles of royalty gets a high ranking in my book.

4. Flynn Rider, Tangled

So he breaks into his wife's tower; so he steals her crown away from her parents before he knew who she really was; so he tries to throw her off of her dream to see the floating lights only to have it thrown back in his face. At the end of the day, we all know who Flynn really is: a thief after our own hearts. What started as a way to make ends meet ended with mutual respect and admiration. Flynn fell in love with Rapunzel for her kind heart, her ability to see the good in others, and her unwavering desire to see things through to the end. It also doesn't hurt that he has a nice sarcastic streak!

5. Prince Phillip, Sleeping Beauty

Okay, come on now. Who doesn't like Prince Phillip? The man literally slays a dragon to be with the woman he loves. The dragon also happens to be the dark faerie tormenting everyone for over a century, so he gets double points for that one. His willingness to do anything to get to Aurora, even in the face of his own imprisonment and peril, earns him a nice place on my list.

6. The Beast (Prince Adam), Beauty and the Beast

I know he started out as a not-so-nice-guy, what with the beggar woman/sorceress revealing his true nature and all. But the Beast proves that it's not always about what a man looks like. Sometimes all it takes is a gentle heart and the promise of friendship to bring out the good in others. Belle stuck with him, even when her neighbors were prepared to "kill the Beast." His ability to love after locking himself away in his castle and resigning himself to his fate

7. Prince Charming (Prince Henry), Cinderella

Although his original title was Prince Henry when the film was first released into the Disney franchise, he has since become Prince Charming in the hearts and minds of Disney lovers everywhere. This Disney man shows us that a woman is not worth much to a relationship as long as she can dance (I'm kidding, I swear)! But honestly, even after he discovers that the woman of his dreams is a servant to her evil step family, he takes her away from all that. He raises her up because he loves her, regardless of her social standing.

8. John Smith, Pocahontas

Ah John Smith. This man went against his own people to discover the truth; he denied the use of his country's fire power against the Native Americans; he was prepared to die for the woman he loved. If anyone deserves a place on this list, it's John Smith.

9. Kristoff, Frozen

May I just start by saying that this man takes no grief? He is not swayed by doe eyed princesses toughing it out in the snow. This man's livelihood is made from harvesting ice, and he makes sure everyone knows he is prepared. It also doesn't hurt his best friend is a lovable reindeer.

10. Prince Naveen, The Princess and the Frog

I know he wasn't a very nice guy at the beginning of the movie, but like The Beast, Naveen shows how a previously narcissistic prince can turn into a good guy. Naveen was all about getting back to his human form so he could continue being the playboy prince his parents knew him to be. But that wasn't who he truly was, and Tiana helped him realize that. For moving up the scale and coming around to view his princess as a strong and independent woman, I give Naveen a place in the list of Disney Men. What do you think of my list of Disney men?
