Disney Stores offer cool fun for kids through Sept. 1 with their Summer Play Days, where ages 3 and up can enjoy story time, show time and Disney trivia, and learn a bit about the art of animation – all free. On a recent morning at the Disney Store at the Glendale Galleria, my 6-year-old daughter, who is a big fan of the first Planes film, joined a team of young aviators for some Planes: Fire & Rescue-themed fun.

In this sequel, now in theaters, Dusty and his team battle insane wildfires, overcome obstacles and learn what it takes to become a real hero. Kids can train to be aerial firefighters just like Dusty during Play Days sessions at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. July 19. Participants will be introduced to Dusty, Skipper, Windlifter and other characters from the film and watch movie clips.

Next, kids will learn to “fly low,” manipulate a parachute and take on a daring-yet-entertaining rescue mission. Families will also receive educational tips from the U.S. Forest Service on how to prevent forest fires. After finishing the missions, the brave young pilots will receive a certificate of completion.

Tech savvy aviators, with the help of their parents, can also explore the Planes: Fire & Rescue app, where kids can read along with the story and play games. The app is available at the iTunes store and is free.
