In the movie "Mary Poppins", Burt sand "It's a jolly holiday with Mary" and you may be wondering where to find Mary Poppins is when you're on vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort and Theme Parks in Orlando, FL. We'll tell you where you can find her in the theme parks and even
Where to Find Mary Poppins in Disney's Epcot Theme Park
1.) Mary Poppins is available daily at the United Kingdom (U.K.) pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase for photos and autographs. Characters generally appear daily beginning around 11:30AM. Mary Poppins rotates with “Winnie the Pooh”and “Alice in Wonderland”. Check the Epcot Times Guide, ask at the Epcot tips board or look at the sign in the pavilion for more specific information about when Mary Poppins will appear during your visit..
2.) Princess Storybook Dining (breakfast, lunch, & dinner) at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway at Pavilion. This is our favorite princess meal at Walt Disney World because they have multiple princesses. Mary Poppins is a regular part of these princess meals but, because the characters rotate, she doesn’t necessarily always appear here. Other characters who also appear at this character dining venue: Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. Ariel is sometimes seen in her human form with a gown (no fins) and, on rare occasion, Cinderella puts in an appearance. TIP: There’s no way of knowing which characters will be present at a particular time or date so be careful about what you promise a little one who loves Mary Poppins; it is far better to say “we’ll see some princesses” and have your Mary Poppins fan wonderfully surprised than to promise Mary Poppins and then be disappointed.
Mary Poppins in the Disney's Magic Kingdom Theme Park
Mary Poppins appears to meet guests, pose for photos and sign autographs intermittently in the upper level of the Main Street Train Station, in the Town Square or near Chappeau. Check your Magic Kingdom Times Guide for exact times during your visit.
Seasonal Event: Mary Poppins also appears at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, a specially ticketed event that occurs on select evenings in November and December.
Mary Poppins at Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park
There is a scene from Mary Poppins on “The Great Movie Ride”. This is a gentle, slow moving ride but be aware that the scene from the movie “Aliens” can sometimes frighten small children. Most do fine if they’re warned in advance.
TIP: During peak travel times, see this attraction in the morning or evening; it will have the longest lines mid-day.
During the movie portion of the “Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream” attraction, the film “Mary Poppins” is referred to as an important milestone in Disney History. Most children will find this attraction a bit boring unless your family is really into all things Disney related. I think it would be a good attraction for most teens because the exhibit really stresses that Walt Disney experienced both successes and failures throughout his career. Young people need to know that a couple of “set backs” won’t set them back forever – they can press on and ultimately achieve their goals.
Where to Find Mary Poppins in the Disney Resort Hotels
Mary Poppins is a regular character at the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast in the 1900 Park Fare Restaurant at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter also appear at this character meal.
TIP: Because the hours immediately following park opening are the least crowded, you might want to schedule resort based character meals on days where you won’t go into a Disney theme park. Go on a water park day, your departure day, or a day where you just plan to relax. At this time, dining reservations can be booked 90 days prior to arrival.
The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort has a cute fountain in the lobby that features the penguins from Mary Poppins.
