These are characters who are male and romantic. These tend to be characters who fall in love throughout the course of the musical.

What are some of your favorite romantic male musical characters?
A couple days ago, I wrote of musical couples that I first came across in college. Now I want to write of the musical couples that I discovered in my elementary and middle school years. But some of them had to be reintroduced in my life throughout my time in college.
- Elphaba and Fiyero
- Belle and Beast
- Nala and Simba
- Jasmine and Aladdin
- Sandy and Danny
- Maria and Captain
- Lisel and Roulf
This list is so much smaller than my older years. My favorite couple in musicals is part of my younger years. My favorite couple is Elphaba and Fiyero.
There is a wonderful magic in Disney musicals. For the past couple of musical posts, a lot of my ideas seem to come from romance. One of my favorite parts of romance come from Disney couples. Whether that is coming from Nala and Simba, Princess Jasmine and Aladdin, Belle and Beast, and Katherine and Jack, there is something wonderful about Disney couples.
The songs of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, “A Whole New World”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “Something to Believe In” has a special kind of magic in them. It is a bit hard to describe the magic, but I think it has something to do with the youthfulness of the couples and the nature of the songs. The couples from Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast were couples that I grew up with and the couple from Newsies only came from last August.
But still, when you add romance to a Disney musical, a wonderful nature of magic exists. There is something just special about those songs. They are so heartfelt and filled with innocence and joy. The magic in Disney romance is exactly why I love those couples I believe and I also love them due to my emotional connection to the songs and the characters.
What do you think about the Disney couples? What is your favorite Disney couple?
As some may know, I have been a musical fan for quite a long time. My journey began back in elementary school and continued into now. The enjoyment of musicals I had of musicals in elementary school developed into something so much bigger than that. But what exactly were some of the most memorable characters from my younger years? Well, those characters don’t just come from elementary school. They also spread into middle school, but stop in summer of 2006. Any Disney character from those days I did at one point did get forgotten about, but were eventually remembered.
- Maria (Sound of Music)
- Von Trapp Children (7 of them)
