Disney World will soon be home to a new Mary Poppins attraction, as part of the makeover happening at Epcot.
What we know
Not much in the way of details and whether it will be a show or ride, or both.
Dick Van Dyke took to the stage at Disney’s D23 fan convention recently to reveal the big news.
Epcot is undergoing massive changes right now.
The move to open a Mary Poppins attractions indicates a move towards a movie tie-in to each of the 11 countries featured.
This is similar to the way to the Norway pavilion took on the ‘Frozen’ theme.
The United Kingdom has a Mary Poppins meet-and-greet so it’s likely that this will be revamped to house the new attraction.
A stunning new poster featuring the whimsical nanny floating above Cherry Tree Lane and the London skyline was also shown at Disney’s D23 Expo fan convention.
This is what the head of Parks had to say:
Every inch of every park should be magical, and that’s why I’m so excited about this transformation.
He added that it will be “the biggest transformation of any park we’ve ever accomplished.
The opening date of the new attraction has not yet been announced, but the expectation is by the end of the year.
Until then here’s the delightful Mary Poppins at the park:
