Halloween may not be over yet, but Christmas is ready to go! Celebrating a holiday at Disney World is extra special. The Parks are decked out in decorations and themed to the holiday spirit. Magic Kingdom hosts Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party decorated with Mickey-shaped pumpkins and limited-time events. Once the fall season is wrapped up, Disney will quickly transition from foliage to snowflakes, creating a winter wonderland.
Magic Kingdom will get yet another transformation as the Park will resemble the winter holidays. Mickey pumpkins will be turned into Christmas lights and garlands. The colors of red, green, blue, and white will litter the Park just in time for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Holidays at Disneyland
Like Disney World, Disneyland celebrates the holidays just as big. Disney California Adventure Park has Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party. After the party ends in October, Disneyland will reimagine its Parks beginning November 10 to get into the Christmas spirit.
Sleeping Beauty Castle will be lit up in holiday lights, along with the Disney Festival of Holidays, Disney Viva Navidad, and so much more. Disneyland doesn’t only transform both Parks but alters some of the most iconic attractions to fit the holiday celebration. Experience your favorite rides like Haunted Mansion and “it’s a small world” in an entirely new way as it’s decorated with holiday lighting and a new holiday spirit.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Disney holiday without exclusive entertainment or limited-time bites. “Believe…In Holiday Magic” Fireworks, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, and Festival Feasting are many reasons to visit the Parks during the holiday season. But that’s not enough; this brand-new Christmas-themed popcorn bucket will likely be the reason you’re running to Disneyland this November.
Mickey Mouse Popcorn Bucket
It’s not just a Mickey Mouse popcorn bucket. To fit the Christmas and the holidays theme, Disney whipped something up that will have all fans asking Santa to deliver one under their tree. The Mickey Mouse Toy Soldier Bucket will arrive in Disneyland this holiday season.

Dressed up in his Nutcracker outfit, this bucket certainly adds to the collection. As most Guests collect the limited-time buckets, it’s likely there will be a limit on the amount allowed to purchase per Guest. “If you aren’t aware, popcorn buckets are some of the most sought-after merchandise items Disney produces,” Disney Dining writes.
Often, Disney will restrict two per Guest, making it much more exclusive before it sells out. Something as festive and cute as this bucket will probably sell quickly, too! A release date hasn’t yet been posted, but we can assume it will be just in time for the holiday season to commence at Disneyland.
Will you be visiting Disneyland to get your very own Mickey Mouse Toy Soldier Bucket?
