Walt Trips to London

Q: I recently learned that Walt Disney eventually convinced writer Pamela Travers to let him adapt Mary Poppins on screen when he visited her in person in London in 1959. I was wondering if, by any chance, this happened on the same trip he made to visit the Mills family (to convince them to allow Hayley play in Pollyanna)?

A [Dave Smith]: Walt made two trips to London in 1959 — in June/July and in October — but we do not have details as to what he did while in London.
