Fans of both of Mary Poppins and Disney will be very happy to hear that there will be a new themed attraction coming to the parks. The news came during the D23 Expo last week causing a firestorm of excitement among the audience.
Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek took the stage on Sunday to update fans on what’s headed to Disney parks in the coming years. When talk turned to Epcot’s massive transformation, Chapek called up a team of dancing chimney sweeps followed by the legendary Dick Van Dyke to deliver the big news: Cherry Tree Lane is coming to Epcot’s United Kingdom pavilion, and it will be home to a Mary Poppins attraction.
This will be the first Mary Poppins themed attraction featured at a Disney park. Guests will be able to stroll past Admiral Boom’s house and up to 17 Cherry Tree Lane, the home of the Banks family. Once there, guests will be able to enter the home and experience the first-ever Mary Poppins-themed ride.
The Mary Poppins ride isn’t the only thing that fans will be able to enjoy, but a Ratatouille ride will also be created. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, is currently under construction and a Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along will begin running in the theater, in addition to the longtime favorite film Impressions de France.
