    I was thinking about that scene the whole time ...

    He'll be seeing the movie--as will all of us, no doubt.

    I think the epic fail is the fact that Nanny McPhee is playing the part of P.L. Travers

    Ha ha, I am not ashamed to say that the sarcasm here went rriiiiight over my head. People are so focused on details at Disneyland sometimes (and that's not a bad thing, it is what it is) that I totally took it at face value.

    Cool I knew I was right, but there's one thing to it. Walt then must have been doing a little branding since the security guards in the movie and actually in the 1960's looked like regular police officers of the day.

    See ya walkin' right down the middle of o'l Main Street USA

    I remember them dressed period-appropriately into the 1980s.

    Exactly. Back when Cast Member costumes were more than generic, and were only seen inside the berm. This movie shoot is a reminder that the difference in the Disneyland of the period of Saving Mr. Banks and that of today is enormously more than the absence of attraction posters and the presence of Barbie Dream Castle color schemes. It was a period when the Park was more than a platform for branding -- run by a company whose idea of entertainment was to innovate and create, not just market whatever brand was currently hot.

    And in "That Thing You Do", (a movie that I'm surprised is not coming up more in these discussion), some of the characters are seen riding the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which, althought they feature the pre-1978 paint scheme, are running in tandem, rather than individually, which they would have been back then.

    It is also a sarcastic thread.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
