A Walk Through the Parks, February and March 2017
DisneyDan  Tuesday, April 11, 2017 1:55:03 PM
Hello everyone,

As Jon and I spend an increasing amount of time at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, I find it correspondingly redundant to post "trip reports", in the more traditional sense. You may have noticed that, for example, recently I posted a stand alone review of the Garden Grill, a report on meeting the stars of Cars 3, and my report on the DVC Moonlight Magic event here on Character Central, and over on Two Lost Boys, my review of Flower and Garden 2017 at Epcot. I thought that it would be nice to share the more "generic" things we saw, too, over the past two months, and so decided to make this report more of a round-up of multiple visits, rather than breaking it down into separate trip reports. We will actually be back at the parks again this week and next, and so you should expect to see a similar round-up and more specialised individual reports once I get around to doing them, too.

Let's start our February-March walk though the park with the Magic Kingdom.   [ Read More... ]

Happy 49th Anniversary Mary Poppins!
DisneyDan  Tuesday, August 27, 2013 5:51:20 PM
Today is the 49th anniversary of the world premiere of Walt Disney's beloved classic, Mary Poppins. The film premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA, where it received a five minute long standing ovation.

With music by the famous Sherman Brothers, and starring Julie Andrews as the magical nanny and Dick Van Dyke as chimney sweep Bert, Mary Poppins has been charming Disney fans for decades.

A mix of live action and animation, Mary Poppins is still very popular today, and the characters from the film appear at the Disney Parks worldwide.
Let's celebrate with them now in our usual Character Central style, with a cavalcade of our favourite photos from our own experiences.

Happy 49th birthday Mary, Bert and the Penguins!

Based on the books by P L Travers, the film has been a firm favourite around the world ever since.

So, here's our photo tribute to the characters of the movie that exist today at the parks.
