Dick Van Dyke leads sing-along with fans outside Walt Disney's childhood home

He's a big- and small-screen legend with a Tony, a Grammy and five Emmy Awards to his name, but Dick Van Dyke isn't resting on his laurels. At 90 years old, he's still out entertaining crowds.

The latest stop for the veteran actor was Chicago, where he visited the childhood home of Walt Disney and delivered a fitting tribute to the man behind one of Van Dyke's most beloved films.

On Sunday, the "Mary Poppins" star stood in front of the famous house, with his 44-year-old wife Arlene by his side, and led fans in a sing-along of the movie song "Let's Go Fly a Kite."

"He marches out on steps of Walt Disney's birthplace on N. Tripp in Chicago and says 'Hi! I'm what's left of Dick Van Dyke!' Then he busts out laughing," Nicolas DeGrazia, who shared the footage on Facebook, wrote. "The guy is 90 years old and running around and skipping with a huge smile on his face."

And it's clear that he's still making everyone else smile, too.

Van Dyke's entertaining appearance marked the soon-to-be completed restoration of the residence, and it also served as a preview of what was to come later that evening — a one-night-only show at the historic Tivoli Theatre that featured even more fan-favorite songs.
