Tour Piston Peak National Park from Disney Planes Fire and Rescue #FireandRescueEvent

Have you had a chance to see Disney Planes Fire and Rescue yet?

What did you think? Did you LOVE IT?

I am so in love with this movie. It may have a bit to do with having a Park Ranger Husband and feeling like this movie was made in our backyard.

During my trip to LA to learn about Disney Planes Fire and Rescue we had the opportunity to learn about the amazing places seen in the movie.

Did any of the landscape seem familiar to you? There are pieces of Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier and other National Parks within Piston Peak National Park.

Disney put so much time, energy and effort into this movie it is amazing. There are so many pieces within the animation that we can’t even see yet they take the time to add them in to make sure the story is all there.

Fire and Rescue 1

Everything from the National Park logo to the characters are created after visiting actual national parks.

Of course the names of the points of interest have to fit the movie :-)

Keep an eye out in the movie for Dramatic Thunderbolt Bluffs, Canopy Dome, Anchor Lake, and Rail Ridge. There is also quite a wildlife population with Red Prop Balsa Trush.

Fire and Rescue 5

I love Scorchy! What a wonderful way to talk about fire danger in a manner that we all love.

Fire and Rescue 8

Disney talked with the head of the National Park department when creating this movie to make sure it was true to life.

Fire and Rescue 9


Piston Peak Air Attack Base home of the Wildfire Air Attack Team with Dusty, Cabbie, Windlifter, Dipper and Blade Ranger is located in the Northwest Corner of the park.

The Wildfire Air Attack Teams makes sure that beautiful scenic areas like V6 Valley, The Grand Fusel Lodge, Piston Peak, Upper Whitewall Falls and everything else are protected from wildfires.
