How To Have A Mary Poppins Returns Travel Experience

Sharing is caring!

Some of my most favorite childhood memories have to do with my Aunt taking us to the Pocono Mountains. She would make the almost 3 hour drive on a Friday evening while my sister and I slept soundly. Magically we would wake up in the cabin the next morning all snug inside of our cozy plaid blankets.

After a long day of exploring outdoors and making our own fun, we would always play board games and then watch Mary Poppins. After watching it so often I could recite almost every word and knew all of the songs. I always called those the practically perfect in every way weekends when I was younger.

Well, the winds changed and I grew up and had my own family. One wish I had was to show them how to have a Mary Poppins travel experience like I had when I was child.

Guess what was one of the first Disney movies I introduced both of my kids to? You guessed it, the original Mary Poppins movie.

I loved watching them pretend to be the Banks children, have laughing parties, plus jump into paintings and more. That movie is where my daughter’s love of carousels and horses was born. She now rides real horses and every time we travel we have to search for a carousel for her to get on.

Can you even imagine all of our excitement when we found out that Mary Poppins Returns was created and would be in movie theaters after Thanksgiving?

We made all kinds of plans to watch the original and then go see Mary Poppins Returns together. Little did we know we would get to have a travel experience together to remind us all just how much Mary Poppins means to our family.

Our family traveled to Puerto Rico over Thanksgiving and we unexpectedly figured out how to have a Mary Poppins Travel experience.

One of the first Disney movies I introduced both of my kids to was the original Mary Poppins? Can you even imagine all of our excitement when we found out that Mary Poppins Returns was created? Will you be going to see this updated and practically perfect in every way version? Our family traveled to Puerto Rico and we figured out how to have a Mary Poppins Travel experience.

The second day of our vacation we decided to visit Old San Juan, which is one our favorite places to explore.

As we walked along the cobblestone streets a bunch of bright colors caught our eye. We walked up to the street where the pretty colors were and there were hundreds of umbrellas hanging above the street. It was mesmerizing.

The kids and I loved jumping up and pretending we were Mary Poppins floating down Cherry Tree Lane with her umbrella.

Even better was the description of the umbrella art installation which talked about the way the umbrellas moved fluidly with the wind. Just like Mary Poppins did and I’m sure Mary Poppins Returns will do too.

As my husband took a picture of me reaching for the umbrellas my kids shouted, just think lovely thoughts and they will lift you up in the air.
