Rumor Proposed Mary Poppins Attraction in UK Pavilion

hey @marni1971 is there any way this could be a theater show type attraction (akin to Country Bear Jamboree) which is themed to The Royal Doulton Music Hall from Mary Poppins Returns?
That’s fairly similar to the BatB singalong at France. And it needs a theatre, which is going to take a big footprint. Someone suggested a “Tales with Mary” which I think could be fun in the absence of a dark ride. And needs a less intrusive building. Not sure if they could use some of the space behind the facades they currently have.

But I really, really hope they don’t scrap Christopher Robin’s bedroom. @marni1971, am I right in thinking at one point you could actually go inside the bedroom? And if I am right, why did they close it and make it just a window to peer through?

Of course, the new “attraction” could be changing the bedroom into a nursery, with cardboard cut-outs of Mary and the children (from either movie). :oops:

I've seen pictures where there was a M&G in the bedroom. I wish they would bring that back.

You all forget that there's a carousel in the movie. Now what would really be neat is you start off on a carousel and detach into a dark ride while still on your horse.

Oh, wow! That just sparked all kinds of ideas in my head. I just love the idea of riding a carousel horse for a dark ride. It could be an omnimover type ride and still be unique.

Assuming they have room for a show building, which they probably don't, the start of the ride would be similar to the original imagination. You're going around in a circle with a moving horse next to you. When your horse descends, the AA horse ascends and vice versa.Then your horse turns away into the show building for the various scenes while the AA horse continues around to match up with another horse omnimover.

A great point that many on here continue to fail to see. I welcome all of these changes for my 8 and 9 year old kids, and the kids that come after them, to enhance their experience.
I think that's what many are missing. They're so focused on what THEY want that they are forgetting there are tens of thousands of others of different ages and tastes in the park. It's one reason why it's nice to have a variety- so there is something there that everyone wants to do.

The bedroom was where Winnie the Pooh and friends used to meet guests. it was honestly one of my favorite places to work as a photopass photographer. I thought it gave a great background, great atomosphere, and just provided a fantastic place for the guests. The problems with it were that the line was either outside with no cover, or in the middle of the shop, which didn't work well.

Alice would sometimes hang around inside there as well in the window landing if it was raining.
