Chapek Confirms ‘Mary Poppins’ Attraction at EPCOT is On Hold But Not Canceled

During the Question and Answer portion, a shareholder asked CEO Bob Chapek about the Disney Parks projects announced before the pandemic but have since been shelved.

Chapek pointed to the pandemic as a reason that projects, such as the EPCOT Mary Poppins attraction, have been on hold.

He listed several projects that have gone forward, such as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Avengers Campus, and the Journey of Water inspired by Moana.

Chapek expressed his disappointment that the projects had to be put on hold and vowed that as their cash situation becomes a bit more robust in terms of liquidity, they look forward to refunding those projects. He also noted that the Mary Poppins attraction is one of his favorite projects.

Which project do you hope to see come to fruition? Let us know in the comments.

  1. And how much of a bonus did he get? And how much have the tickets gone up? Come on, I call bull.

  2. They should either get rid of the old rides or revamp them like ET, figment, space, bring a more modern feel to the parks, but yes Mary poppins will be a great attraction to the UK pavilion 👌👌

  3. Maybe we can help with that….. quick someone start a fundraiser to help them out with it.

  4. I love the new project, but Disney MUST reinvest in their older shows, particularly Spaceship Earth. The flagship for Epcot is in such poor condition….I know it’s renovation was postponed but that should be #1 on their priority list!

    1. They must take things one step at a time and so they first have to do those that already started work before the pandemic.
