Tearful Moment as Dick Van Dyke Serenaded By Dapper Dans
It was a Jolly Holiday at Disneyland this week as Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke blessed visitors with an appearance. The 97-year-old actor was spotted atop a balcony at New Orleans Square and was later spotted being serenaded by the Dapper Dans. It is the latter that was captured by a TikTok user and is nothing short of magical and emotional!
Check out the touching moment featuring Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke.

You can see Van Dyke singing along as the Dapper Dans take us through a harmonious rendition of “Jolly Holiday” from the 1964 film Mary Poppins. Van Dyke famously played the role of Bert, the chimney sweep in the film.
There was also an Instagram post showing Van Dyke waving warmly to fans from a second-floor balcony. He really seemed to enjoy interacting with the crowds.

Over the years Van Dyke has been spotted a few times at Disneyland. According to a recent piece in the SF Gate, the actor spent his 90th Birthday in the theme park back in 2015. Van Dyke also visited the park on his birthday back in 2012.
Dick Van Dyke not only played the role of Bert in Mary Poppins but also Mr. Dawes Sr, the bank owner. His other work for Disney includes Lt. Robin Crusoe USN (1966), Never a Dull Moment, Dick Track, Mary Poppins Returns, and more! He was honored as a Disney Legend in 1998.
What a Disney treasure!
