Welcome to those of you joining me from The Disney Point, and to those of you just hopping aboard! I am the final stop on our this ride on the Blogorail.
Please tell me you have seen at least the first of Disney’s Animated shorts starring two endearing elves, Wayne and Lanny? Prep and Landing first aired in December of 2009, followed in 2010 by a 7-minute short, Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa and another half-hour special, Prep & Landing: Naughty vs Nice, in 2011. With a star-studded cast and hidden references to other favorites such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and Mickey’s Christmas Carol – as well as company references and easter eggs – this series about a high-tech team of elves who ensure homes all around the globe are ready for Santa’s arrival is really entertaining for the entire family. I mean, just check out their arsenal of gadgets! 🙂
This year, we are planning to have a “Disney Family Day” around the movie. Here are our plans, in case you want to join in on the fun! 🙂
- Wayne and Lanny 3D Papercrafts (or check out these cutie versions!)
- Character Ornaments
- plus lots of red, green and classic Christmas party decorations!
- Wayne and Lanny Elf Cookies
- My absolute FAVORITE Hot Chocolate
recipe for three years strong
- Christmas Caramel M&M Popcorn
- Elf-sized donuts made with cheerios – so adorable!
- Prep & Landing Coloring Pages
- Free, Printable “Naughty vs Nice Activity Book”
- … and screenings of the shows, of course! They air this year (updated: 2015) on December 18th and 24th on ABC (check your local listings to confirm times), or you can purchase them all together on DVD/BluRay from Amazon and local retailers. Unfortunately the movies aren’t streaming at this time, but our whole family feels like it’s a purchase worth making!
