Dear 100 Hour Board,
Where do the different Disney princess movies take place? Obviously Belle is in France, Pocohontas is in Virginia, Jasmine is in Arabia and Tiana is in New Orleans, but what about the others? Where do Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid, and Tangled take place?

Dear Captain Thor Guy,
Based on the castles, Germany.
Dear Captain Thor America,
These fairy tales all began as stories written by European authors. Based on the idea that many authors write stories set in their native land, I'd guess the nationality of the author would determine where the story took place. If this assumption is true, and assuming that the Disney people were faithful to the original stories (which isn't completely true, but we'll go with it), then here's where the movies took place:
Snow White: Germany
Sleeping Beauty: France (if the original author was Perrault), Germany (if the original authors were the Grimms), or Italy (if the original author was Basile)
The Little Mermaid: Denmark
I wonder if there are any clues in the movies that would confirm or refute these settings? I wish I owned the movies and had the time to watch them all in time for this question, but alas, I do not. Are there any huge Disney fans among our readers that want to take on the task?
