Disclosure: Thanks to Disney, Marvel & Dreamworks, I was sent on an all expense paid trip including airfare, hotel accommodations & transportation while in Los Angeles. I was sent item for review purposes. However, all opinions are 100% mine!

Before I left to the #ThorDarkWorldEvent, I was sent the Disney's Planes Blu-ray & DVD to review. While my son was a bit sad that I was leaving, we were all happy to have a movie night together before I left!
About the film:
From Above the World of Cars, comes Disney's Planes. An underdog story about a crop duster plane, Dusty, who dreams of winning an air race. After practicing hard to make his dreams a reality, he has the opportunity to fly in a race with some of the world's fastest flyers. Though Dusty has a big heart & big dreams, he wasn't built for speed….& he's also afraid of flying too high. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for—and the inspiration to soar.

Our thoughts on the film:
Fun from start to finish, we of course loved the movie! While some may try to compare it to Cars, you have to know that Planes is it's own amazing story. Dusty & his friends are just as lovable & funny. El Chupacabra had to be our favorite – my son doesn't stop laughing whenever he's on the screen. The story will keep you entertained. It's fun & full of heart. It sends out the message of never giving up to make your dreams come true, regardless of what comes your way.
The bonus material on this DVD are a must see! Klay’s Flight Plan will especially make you appreciate the film more – knowing that such a great director with a big love for aviation was behind the film. It's definitely a must have & a great addition to your Blu-ray & DVD collection!
