Cherry Tree Lane Coming to Epcot’s UK Pavilion in 2020!

Cherry Tree Lane where the trees are always in bloom!

A brand new Mary Poppins-inspired attraction is coming to the UK Pavilion at Epcot next year!

This is the current UK Pavilion. It’s all shops. We don’t see this street changing, but rather an additional Cherry Tree Lane neighborhood added on behind it.

Everyone knows this famous scene.

We expect that it will be a lot like the new wait line area for Peter Pan, where there you enter the Darling house and walk through many of the home’s rooms, which have magical and interactive features.  Expect the Banks’ house to have cupboard drawers opening and closing.

Dick Van Dyke at D23 convention on Saturday.

Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke was a surprise guest at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday, August 24, 2019, to announce an all new Mary Poppins-themed attraction. The 93 year old actor was introduced on-stage after a troupe of chimney sweep dancers performed the film’s classic song “Step In Time.”

Dick shared his adoration for company founder Walt Disney. To a standing ovation, Dick also shared a touching memory in which Walt encouraged him to embody child-like wonder in his ‘Poppins’ performance as Bert all those years ago.

Disney Bounding as Mary Poppins

****
Disney Bounding:  When Disney fans dress up as contemporary versions of their favorite characters and go to the theme parks.

Disney Bounding is a way of dressing up as your favorite character using inspired color palettes, accessories, and clothing styles to look like the character, without actually being in a Disney costume. You simply use items from your own wardrobe to pull together a terrific look.

Halloween

The calendar might still say August and it might be 95 degrees in the shade, but it’s full on Fall at the Magic Kingdom!

Not sure what you’re wearing to this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party yet?

mary poppins1

The MP Look:  All white lace and pearls with just a touch of red.

If you don’t have the time or money for an all out Disney costume, what about Disney Bounding as Mary Poppins?

Mary Poppins main colors are based on her 2 famous costumes:  red and white, and also blue and black.

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins in her fancy white layered dress.

The red and white look is based on her fancy dancing dress.  This is the outfit you are most likely to encounter Mary Poppins wearing in the parks or at the Grand Floridian.

She was wonderful!

Seeing Mary Poppins wearing her blue costume is what’s known as a Rare Character encounter.

Adventures in the Animal Kingdom

Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!

This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier.  Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life.  On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.

Now that she’s back, things get wild.

Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental.  While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.

While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.

Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.

Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
