Saving Mr. Banks

We got to see the new movie Saving Mr. Banks on the Disney lot last night. Not only was the film—about author P.L. Travers’ internal struggle over giving Walt Disney the rights to Mary Poppins—wonderful, but we also got to “Walk in Walt’s Footsteps” afterward, visiting sets from the movie as well as touring Stage A, where hundreds of soundtracks have been recorded, plus the studio’s famous Animation Building. As with everything Disney, it was truly a magical evening.
