I received a copy of Disney’s Planes in order to facilitate my review.  All words and opinions are my own.

A couple of days before I left for California, we received a copy of the Disney’s Planes Blu-ray Combo Pack in the mail.  Big fans of the Cars movies, we had been excitedly awaiting the home release of Planes.  When Bubbles saw the cover she immediately asked if we could put it in and watch it.

Which, of course, we did.  Bubbles crawled up on the couch and sat there without squirming for the entire movie.  I think that tells you right off the bat that it’s an amazing movie; anything that can capture the attention of a toddler has to be good.

My Planes Review: Dusty from Disney's Planes #DisneyPlanesBloggers

Disney’s Planes centers on a cute little orange and white cropdusting plane named Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook).  Dusty doesn’t want to be a cropduster, though; he wants to be a racer.  Specifically, he would like to participate in the Wings Across the World Race.  The only problem?  He’s terrified of heights.

Dusty participates in the race qualifier but doesn’t make the cut.  Soon, though, he finds out that someone cheated and he’s getting to take their spot.  He’ll be competing in the race!  So with the support of his fuel truck friend Chug (voiced by Brad Garrett) and his forklift mechanic friend, Dottie (voiced by Teri Hatcher), and after some mentoring by former war plane Skipper (voiced by Stacy Keach) he heads off to start the race.

El Chupacabra from My Disney's Planes Review #DisneyPlanesBloggers

Along the way he meets a number of other planes.  There is Mexican racer El Chupacabra (voiced by Carlos Alazraqui), French-Canadian race plane Rochelle (voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Indian racer Ishanti (voiced by Priyanka Chopra), and the 3-time race winner Ripslinger (voiced by Roger Craig Smith).  Some of these planes will become friends – others, not so much.

Our Planes Review

We absolutely adore Planes.  When I called my husband the first night after having been away, he reported that they had watched it four times that day – it was the only thing that would occupy Bubbles and make her not wonder where Mama was.  Since then we have watched it at least once per day.  Every time we watch, Bubbles again climbs up on the couch and sits still for the entire 60 minute run time.

I love watching it, myself.  El Chu’s “I swish my cape at you!” line makes me grin every time.  And the cameo from Val Kilmer – a Top Gun, himself – was a nice touch.
