Just announced at today’s D23 Expo’s “Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products” panel, a long-rumored, yet surprise Mary Poppins neighborhood is coming to Epcot.
Originally thought to become a flat spinner ride, it appears the project was expanded into its very own neighborhood in the form of “Cherry Tree Lane.” As part of this new experience, guests will step in time down Cherry Tree Lane past Admiral Boom’s house, then enter Number 17, home of the Banks family, where their adventure will begin.
With the sequel to Mary Poppins released in theaters last year, Disney has a renewed interest in bringing Mary Poppins to Walt Disney World. Mary Poppins formerly had its own scene in the now-closed Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
No details on an opening date were released.
