Trivia
According to the 40th Anniversary DVD release of Mary Poppins (1964) in 2004, Walt Disney first attempted to purchase the film rights to Mary Poppins from P.L. Travers as early as 1938, but was rebuffed because Travers was disgusted by Hollywood's handling of book-to-film adaptations, and did not believe a film version of her books would do justice to her creation. Another reason for her initial rejection would have been that at that time the Disney studios had not yet produced a live action film. For more than twenty years, Disney made periodic entreaties to Travers to allow him to make a Poppins film. He finally succeeded in 1961, but Travers demanded and got script-approval rights. Planning the film, writing the script and composing the songs took about two years. Travers objected to a number of elements that actually made it into the film. Rather than Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman's original songs, she wanted the soundtrack to feature known standards of the Edwardian period in which the story is set. Travers also objected to the idea of using animation to depict the chalkboard world. Disney overruled her, citing contract stipulations that he had final say on the finished print. Travers refused to allow any other Mary Poppins books to be filmed, even though Walt tried very hard to get her to reconsider.

Walt Disney often claimed that had Babes in Toyland (1961) not been made, Mary Poppins (1964) would have never been made. When P.L. Travers in the movie first arrives at the Walt Disney Studios, her car stops in front of a sound stage. There is a poster on the sound stage door for "Babes in Toyland", indicating that was the movie being "shot" in the sound stage.

Goofs
At the airport P.L. Travers is shown at the gates of the fictional British Transcontinental Airways, but the interior of the plane has BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) logos.

While Walt is escorting Mrs. Travers down Main Street USA, the sign for "Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln" can be seen in the background. That attraction did not open until 1965, after Mary Poppins had been released.

The CA license plate on the black limo in 1961 should have been black letters/numbers with a yellow background. The black background/yellow letter/number plate shown was issued beginning in 1963.

Quotes
Travers Goff: Don't you ever stop dreaming. You can be anyone you want to be.

Walt Disney: I've fought this battle from her side. Pat Powers, he wanted the mouse and I didn't have a bean back then. He was this big terrifying New York producer and I was just a kid from Missouri with a sketch of Mickey, but it would've killed me to give him up. Honest to God, killed me. That mouse, he's family.
