The Mary Poppins Expansion At EPCOT Is Still Happening!

Disney CEO Bob Chapek has commented on the future of the Mary Poppins attraction that was planned to be coming to EPCOT's United Kingdom Pavilion, and it's exciting news.

In response to a question at the 2022 Shareholder Meeting, Chapek said that the project is in a holding pattern currently, but looks forward to refunding the Mary Poppins ride in the future.

Back in July 2020, Disney officially announced that the United Kingdom Pavilion expansion was paused as the park's reopened, and recovered from the COVID-19 shutdown.

Originally announced at the 2019 D23 EXPO, the expansion to the United Kingdom pavilion was to add an entirely new neighborhood at the pavilion, complete with a ride. In the plans that were revealed, guests would step in time down Cherry Tree Lane past Admiral Boom’s house, then enter Number 17, home of the Banks family, where their adventure would begin.

Let's hope that it's not too long before we can all step in time down Cherry Tree Lane with Mary Poppins and Bert!
