*I work with Disney on reviews. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.* The first Planes movie was the very first movie I took Zane to see in the theatre. He loved it so much that he was jumping for joy when he heard they were making another awesome Planes movie. When it came out this past summer, we ran to the theatre to see it, along with 10 day old Taylor. He wanted to see it so badly that we brought our newborn with us. It turned out to be such a great movie. Both of Hayley and Zane absolutely loved it, especially because they are obsessed with fire trucks. Now, Planes: Fire and Rescue is available on DVD! You do not want to miss out on buying this because it is such a great family movie. Grab the popcorn, put on Planes, and have a great family movie night!
