New Holiday-Themed Popcorn Bucket at WDW Carts

Share This!

The buckets for sale at the Magic Kingdom popcorn carts now have a holiday-themed design. The buckets feature images of classic characters: Mickey and Minnie about to smooch, Pluto snoozing before a fire, and Donald and Goofy placing gifts beneath the tree.

The bucket, filled with popcorn, is priced at $12.00. If you hang onto the bucket during your visit, popcorn refills are $2.00. This is compared with a single (non-bucket) bag of popcorn for $5.25. If you’re a frequent salty snack eater, the bucket could make financial sense. And it’s a fun souvenir.

    What do we know about serving sizes? Are the buckets comparable to the single use bags? If so, you almost break even after your third popcorn (on an 8 night trip with 2 popcorn gobbling kiddos that’ll come quick) and popcorn number 4 you start winning by more than 3 bucks each AND a kind of cute, kind of creepy popcorn bucket is yours to keep.

    If the buckets are bigger the deal sounds even better.
