There are only a handful of actors and actresses that capture the hearts of so many people. One of those actors is Disney Legend, Dick Van Dyke. Van Dyke was made a Disney Legend in 2021 but has been a huge part of the Disney family since 1964. That is when he starred in the iconic film, Mary Poppins. Since then, he has also worked with Disney on the films Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and Mary Poppins Returns. He also provided his voice talents for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Mr. Van Dyke has always been very open about his love for Disney. He has appeared at multiple D23 Expos, held biannually in Anaheim, California. He has even done impromptu performances at the Expos with his barbershop quartet. Van Dyke has also been spotted out and about in Malibu, California, wearing the most amazing “Spoonful of Sugar” sweatshirt.

Mr. Van Dyke, who will celebrate his 98th birthday in December, is proving that, in many ways, age is just a number. Van Dyke spends time out in Malibu, attending fitness classes with his wife. Just after turning 97, the two even released an adorable music video.

In addition to that, Van Dyke likes to show how much he cares for the people who live and work in his community. He has been seen more than once at the Malibu Labor Exchange, handing out money to those in need. The Malibu Labor Exchange is a non-profit that pairs companies that are looking for workers with those who are looking for work.
