Forever long ago post, seven years ago, and the original poster is probably long gone now, but anyway, there's news and tips:

Disney classic movie and DVD collector fans: Look at the review of the new re-release of "Mary Poppins" to DVD and Blu-Ray in conjunction with the theatrical release of "Saving Mr. Banks".  Consider for gift giving, or a present for yourself, owning this for the extra bonus material!

For memorabilia join two organizations, pay the airfare to attend their events, etc.  

1.  The Disneyana Club, formerly called National Fantasy Fan Club The Club for Disneyana Enthusiasts .  It's a non-profit national social club with chapters all over the US composed of Disney fan collectors, people who have the hobby of collecting Disney things.  Join their national club, then see if they have a local or regional chapter near you.  Every July they hold their national convention in conjunction with the official opening anniversary date of Disneyland at a hotel near that park, they have speakers, events....  And a Show and Sale sales floor where memorabilia collects buy, sell, and trade among themselves.  At the link:  Read about the club, explore all around it, join any of the chapters or learn how to found your own chapter.

2.  Disney a couple of years ago started their own fan club called D23 .  They publish a quarterly magazine that you can buy in major bookstore magazine sections and probably right now their current issue spotlights "Frozen", Disney's successful animated musical now in theaters, and "Saving Mr. Banks", new live action starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as PL Travers, the author of the "Mary Poppins" books, about how it was a creative struggle for Disney to sign Travers to let Disney have the film rights to her books then work with her while the movie was being made.  D23 every two years has a major convention and they conduct studio back lot tours for members-only.  They have a "store" online where you can spend money and buy members-only things, too!

Suggestions:  I'd collect news articles about "Saving Mr. Banks", connect up with the Disneyana Club and D23, and also see if there are fan clubs for "Mary Poppins" as a niche social interest, Julie Andrews fan clubs, Dick Van Dyke fan clubs.  Anything in Disney Stores brick and mortar, or, or in WDW or Disneyland parks, I know there are higher-end memorabilia stores at the parks for the high-end collector, also collector aspects of (dig deep in their offerings).  There used to be a collector series of figurines call Walt Disney Classics Collections or WDCC for short.  Our former NFFC (see #1 above) chapter in New Orleans had avid collectors of these in the 1990s.  You could find sellers via Disneyana Club or D23 members or as suggested eBay.  Knowing Disney in conduction with "Saving Mr. Banks" there is probably high end things to buy.  There is also  a background painting artist for Disney's live action films, last name is Ellenshaw.  I know for a fact his paintings and reproductions of his paintings have been for sale by Disney in it's theme park high end collector shops and online, also online at various movie and Disney art galleries.  He did backgrounds for "Mary Poppins", "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" "Darby O'Gill and the Little People", "Peter Pan" and more.  The higher end collectibles, you'll be digging deep into pocket, wallet or credit card for those, but especially for the WDCC figurines and Ellenshaw art reproductions those will be worth it!  Last find Disney pin collectors and collectors clubs, look for pins for sale online by Disney and in the parks themed to Mary Poppins, etc.  Also look for autographs from theme park walk-around Mary Poppins, ask at Guest Services at the parks for a schedule, or at you can find character meals at the parks and see if Mary Poppins is visiting diners at any.  Also has a list of which characters do make theme park appearances..... You might find Mary at England part of Epcot World Showcase.

I hope that helps, even seven years after you posted it.

But everyone else, if you collect "Mary Poppins" stuff or are simply interested in the re-release of the movie to DVD and Blu-Ray, check it out.

You're on your own for URL searching, though.  I can refer you, but I also have stuff to do offline in Real Life so I'm busy too, but just use suggestions and Google-Bing-Yahoo ! search and references will pop up !  :thumbsup:  :pixiedust:

I've requested my husband Rich Koster, Site Administrator, move this Topic to a collectors forum we have where it makes more sense for others still logging in here and researching here for evergreen topics to be able to find it.  This should have been done 7 years ago, but somehow we missed it.
