Throwback Thursday: Saving Mr. Banks Movie Premier at Hollywood Studios

One year ago…

‘Saving Mr. Banks’ Movie Premier

Line at the premier.

The red carpet was rolled out in front of The Great Movie Ride last night with spotlights swirling and music from “Mary Poppins” playing in the Hollywood Studios Park. All the CP intern guests were invited to meet Mary Poppins, along with Bert, the penguins, and a few chimney sweeps.

We were surprised at how poignant and almost sad the movie was! We did not bring enough Kleenex!!! After watching the movie, we were interviewed on the red carpet about if we liked it or not, and what the best parts were of the movie.

Here is a video of the event: Video
