Mary Poppins Train Experience Day!
On the 11th December, Disney and Belmond British Pullman piloted a Mary Poppins themed experience day and KidsOut were given 20 spaces for this once in a lifetime trip!
The group were greeted at London Victoria station by the Disney Voices choir who sung an array of well- known Disney songs. Whilst this was happening, our transport for the day arrived: a renovated vintage 1920’s train. The interior décor was like the Orient Express, with each table consisting of fine bone china crockery, silver utensils, and crackers.
As the families boarded the train, they were greeted by the stewards. The train was on course to take us around Greater London and down through the Kent countryside, all while gourmet food was being consumed. The menu was Mary Poppins-themed with tartlets as a starter, an array of sandwiches for the main, and a beautifully crafted dessert. The children were entertained during the journey with a face painter, balloon artist and singers that sung Christmas songs which the children loved.
The families we spoke to on the day said:
“Growing up Mary Poppins was my childhood movie and to be able to share it with my children on this special train is a dream come true”
“The train was amazing, we have never been in such a beautiful place. The food was so good! Entertainment was so good”.
One child said “The cakes were yummy!”
“Mummies were also in heaven. We are still pinching ourselves. We are so grateful to be offered this amazing day out THANK YOU SO MUCH”
We want to thank Pullman and Disney for such an incredible and unique opportunity. The families and KidsOut representatives who attended had a great day that will never been forgotten and we are hugely grateful for that. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you in the future.
