Our ExperienceFor the past 2 years, Disney's Prep & Landing has become a vital part of our Holiday movie line-up! If you haven't figured it out by now, our family absolutely LOVES to watch movies together! We make it a point to sit down once a week (usually on Friday) for a family movie night. During the Holiday's we have a rotation of films that we watch, and it simply wouldn't feel like the Holidays if we didn't! Prep & Landing has been one of those movies that really helps to boost the Holiday spirit with our kiddo's! They just know that, that magical day (Christmas) is just around the corner when we sit down to view it on our local ABC television network.
This year we did not have to wait, because it's now available on DVD! There is just something about those cute little elf's that will warm your heart, and get the whole family laughing and ready for the big day! Watch as this energetic and highly devoted team of elves secure houses around the world in preparation, before Santa lands with the highly anticipated presents. The bonus features offered on this DVD are tons of fun too! Our favorites were the Prep & Landing Stocking Stuffer Shorts! “Tiny’s Big Adventure“ was super cute!
Disney's Prep & Landing is sure to become a Holiday classic, and would make a great Holiday gift or a super stocking stuffer!
