Jolly Holiday is a song from the film, Mary Poppins. It was written by the Sherman Brothers. It is sung by Bert and Mary Poppins in the pastel fantasy sequence before reaching the carousel. The Oscar winning music arranger Irwin Kostal provided the much lauded orchestration.
The film takes place in 1910 (although the P.L. Travers books place the story in 1934) and the song is in the Music Hall style of the period.
Jolly Holiday Bakery
Sit on the expansive Victorian-style garden patio and nibble on an assortment of sweet and flaky baked goods and desserts. Take in the prime views of people enjoying their day at the Happiest Place on Earth with Sleeping Beauty Castle and Matterhorn Bobsleds in the background.
Feel especially merry when you sample breakfast entrees like an egg and bacon croissant sandwich or a yogurt parfait. Try lunch and dinner delights like oven-roasted turkey on ciabatta, a toasted cheese sandwich or the fabulous Jolly Holiday Salad.

I'm a HUGE Back to the Future fan!
The Enchantment Under the Sea dance was a high school dance that was held at Hill Valley High School on Saturday night, November 12, 1955 . It was the dance in which Marty McFly 's parents George McFly and Lorraine Baines fell in love after their first kiss.
Hill Valley High School is actually Whittier High School in Whittier, CA. The school is located 9 miles from my home town. In fact the movie was filmed all over Southern CA where I grew up.
The famous Doc Brown scene at the mall in the beginning of the film was shot at Puente Hills Shopping Center where my mother worked in a candle store.
My dad's brother-in-law, who works at Universal Studios, CA, was part of the crew that built the Hill Valley courthouse square on the Universal Studios back-lot. As well as the Clock Tower for the famous lightning strike scene.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
