I remember seeing Mary Poppins on TV (not the movies I’m not that old) and I liked it alot. I’ve always been a fan of Dick Van Dyke since he has such delightful childlike wonder. So I’m very curious seeing the new film Saving Mr. Banks since I’d never thought about the book or the person who wrote it. I read the book as a kid but the movie has always been at the forefront of my memory. I didn’t even realize it was a woman who wrote it but must admit I never thought of it one way or another it was just one of the many books I read as a bookworm that went through my school library with ferocious intent. I’d like to see the film on the lot with the special tour but sadly it’s all sold out! Darned Disney fanatics!
Saving Mr. Banks Special Event
Walt Disney Studios is offering guests a special event in celebration of the upcoming release of Saving Mr. Banks. The event gives guests the chance to see the film in a theater on the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, and then an opportunity to walk in Walt’s footsteps on a tour of the lot.

The “Walt in Walt’s Footsteps” tour after the reserved seating screening includes photo opportunities with Mickey Mouse, Mary Poppins, and Bert, and a chance to see sets from Saving Mr. Banks, such as Walt Disney’s office and Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers’ home. Guests will also visit the Walt Disney Animation building and Legends Plaza to see the many historical plaques, including Walt Disney, Dick Van Dyke, Julie Andrews, and many more.
