Famously played by Julie Andrew in the 1965 film and then recast by Emily Blunt in 2019, Mary Poppins is about as Disney as it gets. This makes bumping into her character around Walt Disney World an extra special experience, as the story of the magical British nanny seems to transcend time and register with guests of all ages.

What’s great about meeting Mary Poppins in the UK Pavilion around the World Showcase is that she isn’t a masked character. This means that she can verbally interact with guests at EPCOT, and she, never being one who is short for words, often does, creating memorable experiences for guests who get the chance to see her and grab a photo.

Speaking of photos, don’t forget to capture the moment with one or an autograph to cherish the memory of meeting this beloved Disney character at one of the most enchanting theme parks on earth. Often, Mary is more than happy to oblige, but as one EPCOT guest and Mary Poppins fan discovered, the prim and proper nanny, being practically perfect, will insist that your photo is the same.

Recently, upon a visit to EPCOT, Reddit user @RampageNate discovered that Mary, even outside of the film, maintains her high expectation of perfectness, and photo opportunities are nonetheless. Nate writes that while visiting, he, like many of us at EPCOT, was walking around with an alcoholic beverage when he stumbled upon Mary Poppins entertaining guests in the park. However, before taking a photo with Nate, Mary had one stern yet obvious request.

“Same experience at Epcot. Doing the world tour and had a Moosehead Lager. Kids wanted a family picture with Mary Poppins. Before my buddy snapped the pic, she asked if I would “kindly conceal your juice, sir”

That’s right, she asked him to conceal his “juice,” obviously referring to his alcoholic drink. As is Mary Poppins, everything must be tip-top if you plan to grab a photo with her.

“I once asked Mary Poppins if she could say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards. She replied “it is quite rude to ask a lady what she is able to do but saying Dociousaliexpisticfragicalirupus is going a bit too far!”
