I know the Disney cartoon Prep & Landing came out last year as a TV Christmas special. My family missed it all together, including recording it on our DVR! Last year I was hoping it’d be on TV again this year so we could enjoy the show with our sons – now 2YO and 4YO. Christmas is my favorite holiday for so many reasons, and one is snuggling up with the family under a cozy blanket to watch heartwarming story. Prep & Landing did that for my family, and now your family can get this Christmas story for your own home collection!
Prep & Landing is the movie you have to own NOW! Get it today or maybe you can find a great Black Friday deal – either way this is a must-have movie to add to your currently holiday collection as one elf gets a reminder of what his job and the Christmas spirit is really all about.
SPIOLER: Wayne is one of Santa’s elves most elite, he’s on the Prep and Landing team and has been for 212 years. Wayne is the most senior Prep & Landing team elf and expects a promotion he doesn’t end up getting … his partner does. Since his partner is promoted, Wayne gets a new recruit who is excited to be in his new position and thrilled to be working with the Prep & Landing legend, Wayne. However, Wayne is ready to dismiss Santa and Christmas altogether, but the new recruit helps Wayne remember what the spirit of Christmas is all about just in time to save Christmas for one child. Wayne returns from the experience content and Santa gives him a gift to help him remember this Christmas that was almost “Figgie Pudding”.
My Mom Start Review Grade of Prep & Landing show on DVD: A
There’s not just the Prep & Landing movie on this Disney DVD. Your collection will also gain two new shorts, Operation Secret Santa and Tiny’s Big Adventure, and bonus features including three “Elf Training Videos” – Welcome To Kringle Academy, Equipment Training, Dos And Don’ts; “North Pole News”, and “North Pole Commercials”. Here is what my family thought:
· Operation Secret Santa – My mom and I thought this was a sweet short. Of the extras this was my mom and my favorite.

· Tiny’s Big Adventure – My 4YO though this was SOOO funny; we had to watch it over and over again! See a preview below.

· Elf Training Videos – These were made to look like old reel film. The cartoons were bouncy and hard for me to watch. I could care less for these.

· North Pole News – Out of everything we watched I can’t remember what this is about; that must say something.
My Mom Start Review Grade of North Pole News bonus: C
· North Pole Commercials – These were very grown-up in my opinion and debated turning them off as my 4YO was still watching ever piece of the DVD with me to watch Tiny’s Big Adventure again. Though as an adult I thought these commercials were LOL funny!
My Mom Start Review Grade of North Pole Commercials bonus: B
You can get your Prep & Landing DVD on store shelves now, or you can order it on-line. The suggested retail price is $19.99, but I’ve seen it for about $14 during this premier week.
