There are too many varieties to out all into one drawer and slap a label. I personally think that most of the princessy movies are harmful for little girls, because then they would grow up thinking that your looks are all that matters in order to get your Prince charming. Although this one princess who is a bibliophile could also be a good role model. I personally liked Mulan amongst all Disney girls, cause the is a strong woman who doesn't give up. But my all time favorite Disney movie is the lion king and I don't see the part where it might be harmful for kids, girl or boy.
Also important is the parents' involvement in explaining the characters. This is the only way you can avoid your child from getting the wrong message

Why? Because a lot of them, the older ones especially, are adapted from fairy tales in which the woman is an innocent princess rather than the sexy, independent, and empowered woman who can hold her own and because the hero is a brave prince fighting to save her and not just some random guy who shows up in the middle of the fight that she was already winning and because modern feminists are looking for a boogeyman?
Or they're trying to rescue young girls today from the Disney dragons?
Wait, I'm seeing a parallel here...
