Some people think Disney princesses are mild and meek, but that's not true at all! The folks at U Create Craft created a round-up of free Disney princesses patterns. Although the patterns are for perler beads, they can easily be used for cross-stitching, too. The patterns don't have a color pallet to stitch with, so you can use any color floss you wish.
