I attended the 2013 D23 Expo in Anaheim and was totally in awe of everything that I saw. One exhibit in particular just blew my socks off. The exhibit was the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives featuring Mary Poppins. I spent at least an hour looking at the exhibit and reading every title card and explanation about the item. I am pretty sure I took a picture of everything in the exhibit. Unfortunately flash photography was not allowed in the exhibit and it was crowded so some of my pictures are not the best BUT they are still cool.
This is part 2 in my blog series of the Mary Poppins Treasures from the Walt Disney Archives. You can view part 1 as well where I posted about many of the treasures such as the shooting script, movie premiere items and a letter from P.L. Travers to Walt Disney.
Items from the nursery included the Jack in the Box and the alphabet blocks that spelled out Mary Poppins.
One of the major highlights was was seeing Bert and Mary’s horses from the Jolly Holiday sequence. Mary’s horse has been restored, but Bert’s horse has not.
