Video: Dick Van Dyke Led A Sing-Along At Walt Disney's Childhood Home

Musicals tend to divide people into two camps: those who pine for a world that spontaneously bursts into song, and those who would suffer such an existence as if it were a new Circle of Hell. We tend to fall into the latter, but even we couldn't deny Dick Van Dyke's impossibly charming sing-along rendition of "Let's Go Fly a Kite," from Mary Poppins, delivered on Sunday in front of Walt Disney's childhood home in Chicago.

Van Dyke, 90 (!), was in Chicago for an event called Creativity Days. He also stopped by his hometown of Danville, IL—replete with a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang replica car—to help raise funds for area youth scholarships and the preservation of his own childhood home.
