Disney’s ‘Prep and Landing’ Shorts Are Coming to Disney Plus on November 6

Disney+ is getting two ‘Prep and Landing’ shorts on November 6th according to What’s on Disney Plus. These aren’t new shorts, but they are the popular cartoons shorts: “Prep and Landing” and “Prep and Landing: Naughty Vs Nice.”

These cartoons were very popular. And Disney’s Hollywood Studios even incorporated them into their “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” holiday projection show.

Disney as apparently announced that these two shorts will be coming to Disney+ in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on November 6th. Now Australia is going to get another short called “Operation Secret Santa” as well. I’m bummed because I would like to see that one, hoping it will air over here in some capacity on ABC or something.

The story of “Prep and Landing” is basically the high tech elf teams in the Prep and Landing divisions get the houses ready for Santa’s arrival. Two elves are teamed up. One is Wayne, who expected a promotion to the Director of Naughty List Intelligence, but instead he got partnered with a rookie named Lanny. Hilarity and challenges ensue.

The second short “Prep and Landing: Naughty Vs Nice” follows the two elves on their quest to retrieve specialized North Pole technology that ends up in the possession of a “naughty list child.” They have to bring in the assistance of Wayne’s estranged brother Noel.

They really are cute shorts. My kids loved these when they came out. I loved them when they came out. I really wish Disney would do some new shorts for these characters because they are extremely popular! Since they use them in the parks they could justify the expense as promotion or for new show material.

If you haven’t seen either of the “Prep and Landing” shorts you should give them a watch. They’re a lot of fun.
