P.L. Travers said that she wanted real penguins to sing and dance. Since they couldn't be trained to dance, Walt Disney opted for animated penguins in Mary Poppins (1964). Actually, it's true that real-life penguins do sing and dance, but only when they want to. The singing and dancing is to attract mates.
Winds in the east / Mist coming in / Like something is brewing / About to begin / Can't put me finger / On what lies in store / But I feel what's to happen / All happened before.
At the beginning of the film, the cherry trees in London are blossoming - Travers refers to them as pink clouds on sticks. When she returns two weeks later, they are still in bloom. Cherry trees can remain in bloom for only a few days, not for two weeks.
There is a post credits dedication of the movie to Diane Disney, Walt Disney's oldest daughter, who passed away in November 2013.
