If there is one piece of merchandise Disney Park Guests seemingly crave the most, it’s popcorn buckets! Disney has caught on to the trend, making popcorn bucket debuts an event all in itself.
In January, Walt Disney World Resort rolled out a Figment popcorn bucket at EPCOT for the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. Guests flocked to the Disney Park and extremely long lines (yes, FIVE hour waits!) of eager popcorn bucket collectors waited hours for a chance to snag Figment for their collection.
The Figment popcorn bucket, inspired by the attraction “Journey Into Imagination With Figment“, sold out quickly the first time, and then when restocked the second time around. While we thought the Figment buckets were officially gone for good, it seems like Disney has surprised Cast Members with the notoriously popular buckets!
Walt Disney World Cast & Community took to social media to share:
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration continues to pop with surprise and delight for Guests and Cast alike. Since Cast are the heart of the 50th Celebration, the Cast Activities team had a kernel of an idea to recognize some of the EPCOT Festival Cast with the beloved Figment Popcorn Buckets.”
“This sweet moment was quite the surprise and helped celebrate some of the Cast who work on the front lines and behind the scenes to power and support imagination and inspiration at EPCOT. Thank you for being part of our spark! #DisneyCastLife“
Next up, Disneyland is rolling on a unique popcorn bucket inspired by the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade… a Light-up Elliot Dragon Premium Bucket along with an adorable Light-up Turtle Premium Sipper.
Way to go for all of the Cast Members. This is well deserved! Thank you for being that “spark” we Disney fans appreciate so much.
