    Where can I meet Mary poppins now that Pooh is back in magic kingdom?

    Greetings Donna, I'd like to wish you a warm welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds to me like you're a connoisseur of Character Experiences at the Theme Parks and as someone who's spent some time hanging out with our furry friends, it's great that folks now have another location to meet our friend Winnie the Pooh! In fact, I've spotted many families lining up to Meet Winnie the Pooh and Tigger at The Thotful Spot in Magic Kingdom Park who'll be delighted to learn that as of this month they can also Meet a Friend from the Hundred Acre Wood in the United Kingdom in EPCOT World Showcase!

    While Christopher Robin's room is located towards the back of the United Kingdom Pavilion, the nearby gazebo where Command Performance entertains guests with their tunes was one of the spots where I've seen Mary Poppins make her visits over the past year. Now since loud rock music might not necessarily match her overall vibe, I took the chance to speak with a Character Attendant and a Disney PhotoPass photographer nearby about where one might be able to meet Mary Poppins nowadays. They let me know that though she currently does not have any scheduled appearances like those when folks wish to meet Alice in the United Kingdom, they let me know that there is a chance that she'll occasionally float down to surprise and delight guests in the area between the World ShowPlace Events Pavilion and the Rose & Crown Pub. Bear in mind that as offerings are always subject to change without prior notice and this is never guaranteed, your best bet is to keep an eye out and ask any Cast Members in the area if they've spotted her lately upon your next visit.

    In the meantime, you might be able to see inspired representations of her signature style echoed throughout the recently-reimagined Cítricos at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. (On our most recent visit we spotted her umbrella and carpet bag tucked away neatly in the dining room if you know where to look!) Come back again to planDisney where we'll be happy to answer any more of your Character queries again in the future!

    I hope that your next visit to EPCOT is Practically Perfect in Every Way!
