Disney has announced that on Nov. 6-7 part of the Disneyland park will be blocked off for filming of the movie, which tells the story of the making of "Mary Poppins" and how Walt Disney pursued the rights to the film. Among the cast is Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers, and Colin Farrell as Travers father.

Disney officials have declined to confirm which stars will be present at Disneyland on the days of shooting, and that park Guests will not get the opportunity to meet them as the set will be blocked off to the general public. As the film is set in 1961, there can't be any bloopers with regular Guests walking around sporting the latest fashions. So therefore Disneyland Cast Members were given the opportunity to apply to be extras.

The filming of "Saving Mr. Banks" began last month in Los Angeles. The movie is due in theatre on Dec. 20, 2013 - just in time for Oscar season.
