Mary Poppins meets guests daily at Epcot in the United Kingdom Pavilion. She meets guests daily from mid-morning until usually around 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
As always, you’ll want to check the exact times for her meet-and-greet in the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit.
As of this last update, Mary Poppins has been meeting towards the front of the pavilion under the archway that leads to the garden.
This area is adjacent to where Alice in Wonderland greets guests. They are usually both out from time to time during the day.
However, Mary Poppins has been known to meet toward the back of the pavilion. So if her time is scheduled and you don’t see her, you might check toward the back near the gazebo.
On this day, I had been in a lengthy line to meet Aurora in France. I finally met Aurora at 2:19 p.m.

Since Mary Poppin’s meet-and-greet began at 2:20 p.m., I wasn’t sure I could make it before her line closed. So I hurried to the United Kingdom Pavilion and arrived at 2:27 p.m.
Thankfully, there were only about 15 guests ahead of me, and the line was still open to join. I was able to meet Mary Poppins at precisely 2:43 p.m. All total, it was a 16-minute wait to meet Mary, which wasn’t bad at all.
There was no PhotoPass photographer present on the day of this visit. However, she did sign my autograph book.
Unfortunately, we are seeing fewer PhotoPass photographers at the character meets. If you want your photo made, you can ask the cast member attending the meet to help you. Or you could make friends with someone in line and ask them to help.
Mary Poppins wears her Jolly Holiday costume at this character meet. And as I’m sure you already know, she is practically perfect in every way.
Mary Poppins enjoys talking about Jane and Michael, the flowers in the nearby garden, or you could discuss the perfect cup of tea. True to form, she delivers an air of utmost properness.
Mary Poppins formerly met daily Magic Kingdom, but that meet has yet to return. However, you can usually see her daily in the Adventure Friends Cavalcade.
We’ll look at other opportunities to meet the beloved nanny in the future.
