If you’ve ever dreamed about strolling down a cobblestone lane while chimney sweeps serenade you, then your wish is about to come true. A new Mary Poppins attraction is opening at Disney World!
As part of a sweeping (pun most definitely intended) transformation of Epcot, Mary Poppins will be getting her very first Disney Parks attraction. At the United Kingdom pavilion in the World Showcase neighborhood, guests will have the opportunity to take a stroll down Cherry Tree Lane and wave hello to the Admiral as they make their way to the Banks’ residence at number 17 for a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious adventure.
Epcot is set to undergo a reimagining over the next few years and will be divided into four unified neighborhoods, all of which celebrate important aspects of the world and its people: World Showcase, World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. World Showcase, where the Banks family and their famous nanny will be housed, will “continue to be a celebration of culture, cuisine, architecture and traditions––infused with new magic,” according to a Disney Parks press release.
No word yet on when the new Mary Poppins attraction will debut, but guests will be able to get a look at all of the plans for the new Epcot when Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience in the Odyssey Events Pavilion starting Oct. 1, 2019.
