    the story behind "Step in Time" Mary Poppins

    I figured i would ask here after several searches failed to turn up the story I vaguely remember, just can't put together the right keywords for what i want. Many thanks in advance!

    So from either a book, dvd extra, documentary etc. I recall Walt sitting in on rehearsals or with the Sherman bros and shouting out the commands referenced in the song, because the dancers seemed, well, not jolly enough? Where can i find this story as it was originally told?

    who told this story? Where does it exist on film or print?

    heading to WDW tomorrow and "Step in time" is on the music playlist. I just can't shake this reference and knew the WDW radio crew/box people could help.

    Jim Hill did a blog entry about this and it was also reflected in Di ck van Dykes book of memoirs.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
