    What happens when a legendary Disney designer sits down to watch “Mary Poppins Returns” on his TV? Well, if you’re Tony Baxter, it shakes up your whole backyard.

    Baxter, who built his Anaheim Hills home 28 years ago, had been thinking for a while about how to attract house guests down into his spacious backyard. People always complimented him on the yard’s beauty, but rarely ventured into it, preferring to stay on the porch.

    “When I built this house, I thought it would get used a lot more, but I don’t have a pool,” Baxter said. “It wasn’t conducive to partying. There were no big places to gather.” <snip>
