Oz the Great and Powerful  Balloon Tour has arrived for the day in Disneyland.
Well technically between Disneyland and DCA.
Early the morning of February 17th the hot air balloon was floating between the 2 parks tethered to the ground in promotion of the upcoming Oz the Great and Powerful  (a look at the story of the Wizard from the OZ world and how he got to OZ).

Here are some pictures of the balloon from the resort

Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #9 Small Fry 2011 9 out 10

Small Fry  2011  9 out of 10

This short animated Toy Story toon was really clever fun and enjoyable.  A mini Buzz Lightyear  fun meal toy replaces Buzz while at a trip to the local fast food restaurant.   The real Buzz ends up lost in the ball pool and then finds himself in a  support group for  fast food toys that haven't been played with.   The cast of forgotten toys is classic and this short feature is really worth checking out just to see the cast of misfit toys.  The creativity behind these fake not so fun toys is true Pixar.  I laughed out loud at Ghost Burger.

Small Fry can be found on the DVD Pixar Animated Shorts Volume 2

Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #8 Air Mater 2011 6 out 10

Air Mater 2011   6 out of 10

Air Mater  is one of a series of Car Toons  or   Mater's Tall Tales in which Mater ends up in some fun action packed unbelievable situations.  This  Pixar animated short t features Mater learning how to fly. All of the Mater Tall Tales are good--but they usually aren't as great as the original short films that Pixar makes.  Each of the shorts in this series follow a similar formula, Mater tells Lightning McQueen about some wild story that happened to him.  In Air Mater we get a lot of high flying action --but it doesn't have as many funny moments as some of the other Mater stories.    If you are a big Mater fan you will love them.  For me they are enjoyable, but I prefer the more original Pixar shorts.

This short is featured on the Pixar animated shorts DVD Volume 2
