disney plots

Disney movies seem to all have the kid's parent(s) killed at the start (to make you have empathy for the child), and then the only hope for most girl characters is to wait for some handsome guy to save her. Here are some examples; which ones did I miss?

I did like Mulan a lot; a girl pretends to be a boy so she can take her aging father's place in the army, to help the Chinese defeat invading warriors. Although even in this movie there is a traditional "girl falls for (more) powerful man" story with her handsome commanding officer.
