ORLANDO, Fla. — Disney World is evolving once again.
Park officials have revealed that Epcot’s World Showcase will be home to the first-ever attraction inspired by Mary Poppins.
The yet-to-be-named experience will be in a brand new neighborhood within Epcot's United Kingdom pavilion.
“Guests will step in time down Cherry Tree Lane past Admiral Boom’s house, then enter Number 17, home of the Banks family, where their adventure will begin,” park officials announced Sunday at Disney’s D23 Expo.
No additional details -- including an opening date of the attraction -- were revealed.
The new Mary Poppins attraction is among an array of updates coming to Epcot in the years ahead.
