    Mary Poppins Attraction in Magic Kingdom

    Hey!

    I wanted to post this here to see what people would say about it. How do other fellow Disney people fell about such an idea.

    I LOVE Mary Poppins the movie. I think its defines EVERYTHING Walt ever wanted and being one of his last movies, he went out on a High Note with that one. The movie was extreamly successful back in 1964 and even had its own premiere. All that said and done, why do we not have an attraction for it. Many others have unfortunatley come and gone ie. Mr Toad, 20000 Leagues, So why not Mary Poppins.

    I keep dreaming up this ride, based on the ride system of Peter Pan, since Mary does "fly" another ride based on the PP mechanics would alivate traffic on the PP ride. Let's face it, 50min ride for a 2min go along, kinda ****s to wait so long for nothing much, but still great nonetheless.

    Continuing with Mary, the attraction would go through the Banks house and just continue through the select scenes of the movie such as Jolly Holiday, Feed The Birds, Lets Go Fly a Kite and I would guess a few others, maybe the bank scene. It would last a good 5-7 mins I would guess. It would fit right into Fantasyland. They have no idea what to put in the bulk of "Toontown" since I read Pixie Hollow isn't happening. This would be AMAZING to see added.

    I know that GMR has a Mary Poppins "scene", but to me, that's not close to enough. :-)

    What do you guys think????

    Good idea. The ride vehicle could be a carousel horse from the movie, maybe, if that works.
    there's nothing to get hung about

    Mary Poppins certainly deserves a ride more than Toad ever did. I like your idea.

    I think a Mary Poppins dark ride would be a good addition to Hollywood Studios, maybe even Fantasyland. Actually, any new dark ride would be appreciated by me.

    I suppose it could work, but would be competing for attention from a generation that is probably not very familiar with the movie or music. Then again, someone thought Stitch's Great Escape was a good idea and the MP idea sounds much better.

    Thanks for all the feedback!!! I didn't think it would get this much attention :-)

    I love it so much, It would be awesome. Expose a whole new generation to a Disney Classic and one of the last movies with Walt's FULL Input!! and as for the music, TIMELESS!! The Sherman Brothers are just the best!!

    thats the only thing to be careful of... dedicating an attraction off of a film from the 1960's... the idea is good as a dark ride... but i fear Disney wants to make money on present films... (which is why Stitch got its own attraction... albeit a terrible one at that...)

    There's no chance of either happening.

    If you want to relive Toad, just go out and steal someone's car. Same thing... pretty much.

    Re: Mary Poppins Attraction in Magic Kingdom

    Is it blasphemy to suggest the "popularity" Toad now seems to have is merely misplaced nostalgia? As a kid it was never a ride I needed to see. Sometimes we went on it and sometimes we didn't; and when we didn't no one in my family ever seemed to really miss it.
