My Thoughts:
Even though Savannah received Prep and Landing plush toys from Hallmark last Christmas from my parents, it wasn't until this past weekend that we actually got to see these holiday movies from Disney, which have become a hit with families.  Prep and Landing originally aired on television in 2009, followed up with Naughty vs Nice.  After watching these two movies half a dozen times so far :-) since receiving over the weekend, I can see why so many people like these movies, and have been watching every holiday.  The odd relationship between Lanny and Wayne is a hoot, and really makes the movie more enjoyable.  Families will enjoy watching both of these Disney classics, as they get an inside look into how Santa pulls off prepping the toys and pulling off Christmas Eve deliveries, with the help of his elves. 

Both animated films are short, but are filled with laughs and fun adventures, that will have every member of your family, young or old, excited and engaged from start to finish.  Savannah was front and center in the living room with her talking dolls, and every time Lanny and Wayne appeared on the screen, she would make her dolls talk.  And, whenever she heard my husband or I laugh, she would turn to us and chuckle and smile.  What a great family movie night we had.  And, like I said, we have seen these movies a half a dozen times since then, and plan to watch them again as the holiday approaches.  I am so glad we were finally able to watch these movies, and can add to our growing holiday family films collection.

Have you seen these movies when they aired on television?  If you have or missed them like we did, this new Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack is worth picking up and sharing with your family this upcoming holiday season.  They are both a treat to watch, and will even be enjoyed all year round. 

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this movie from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
