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.

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….

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Julie Bowen interview #FireandRescueEvent

When you see celebrities on TV do you ever wonder if their personalities match their characters?

Do you wonder if they are as funny in person as they are on TV?

These are a few of the questions I had going into our interview with Julie Bowen who plays Dipper in Disney Planes Fire and Rescue.

You may know Julie Bowen from her role on Modern Family.

I am incredibly happy to say that Julie is as funny on screen as she is in real life. In fact she might be better in real life because she is honestly a ball of energy. She emanates fun and laughter from her entire being.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant to meet her she was bubbly, vivacious and exactly what I had hoped she would be.

Behind the scenes look at The Boxtrolls

I have a confession to make….I have been keeping a secret for a few months.

It has been hard to keep this a secret and now I can finally share it with everyone. A few months ago I had the chance to fly to Portland and meet the filmmakers behind the upcoming movie The Boxtrolls!

This was my first time visiting LAIKA the movie production company that has also produced Coraline and ParaNorman.

The amount of time, energy and love that goes into making these movies is amazing. Did you know it is a 3 year process to make a movie!  It takes typically a week to complete only 3.7 seconds of footage for the film!!!
