Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins is the lead character in the 1964 classic Walt Disney film, "Mary Poppins." The East wind blew Mary Poppins to Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane in London, England.
Mary Poppins doesn't have a family. I believe Bert is as close to a family member that she has. She lives for helping the children of the world that are in need of help. Bert, Jane and Michael join her on her adventure in the movie.
On a side note, I also recommend everyone reading the fantastic P.L. Travers books about Mary Poppins. There are 8 books in the series: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park, Mary Poppins from A-Z, Mary Poppins in the Kitchen, Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane, and Mary Poppins and the House Next Door.
Mary Poppins wears many outfits in the film and in the parks. Her primary outfit is a dark blue dress jacket, and a long dark blue skirt with a white and yellow dress shirt and red bow. With it she wears a Black hat with flowers on it, white gloves and black shoes. Her second outfit is the white and yellow dress shirt with a red bow, long dark blue skirt and a white apron. Her third outfit is a beautiful white dress with red and pink sequences all over and a white hat that has flowers on it with a white and olive green umbrella and white and pink boots.
Mary Poppins is played by one of the greatest actresses of all time in my opinion Dame Julie Andrews.
You can find Mary Poppins everyday at Walt Disney World at the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot. She can occasionally be found at the Magic of Animation building at Hollywood Studios, and at Prince Charming Regal Carrousel in the Magic Kingdom. Mary Poppins can also be seen on Broadway. The play started at West End in 2004 and eventually opened on Broadway in 2006. You can learn all about Mary Poppins in a fantastic episode of the W.E.D.nesday Show as in Episode 56 Brent talks about all things Mary Poppins!
