One day he’s here, the next he’s gone.
It seems that one little purple dragon has taken Walt Disney World by storm, becoming the hot purchase for Disney Guests at EPCOT.
And after one day back on the shelves, the Figment Popcorn Bucket is no longer available…again.
If you’ve been following Disney on social media lately, then you’re sure to have seen the crazy frenzy surrounding the $25 Figment Popcorn Bucket.
Back in January, EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts began celebrating the worlds of art, performance, and cuisine with incredible performances, experiences, and stalls selling artists’ work.
But the longest wait time for anything in EPCOT was not for an attraction or a show – it was for a popcorn bucket.
Yes, we were all scratching our heads too when we saw lines of up to 7 hours for a little plastic dragon-shaped popcorn bucket!
Well, after making a grand return to the theme park yesterday, February 14, Figment has sold out once again.
The Pop! Eats stand near Port of Entry sold the new Figment Popcorn Bucket and his rainbow popcorn, and back on January 19, the popular buckets sold out, disappointing many fans of the little purple dragon and his attraction Journey Into Imagination With Figment, starring Eric Idle.
Disney strictly enforced a limit of two Figment Popcorn Buckets per person, but many Guests were irate at seeing some families getting two buckets each and ended up often with eight or ten buckets per group.
When Figment returned to EPCOT on Valentine’s Day, Guests could purchase the Popcorn Bucket without having to stand in a massive queue. Guests could use the Mobile Order feature on the My Disney Experience app to get their hands on one.
Now, as shown below, the Mobile Order function is unavailable as the Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket is sold out:
We are not sure if Disney will be getting more Figment Popcorn Buckets, but it seems wild to us that these sold out so quickly when Guests were posting photos (and hilarious memes) of the hundreds and hundreds of Figments lined up in the World Showplace Pavilion.
The Festival runs through February 21, 2022, and we’re not sure if Disney will sell the bucket will be sold after this date as it is such a moneymaker for Walt Disney World.
If you are looking to visit the EPCOT festival, Guests can expect to experience delicious treats from Food Studios around World Showcase, the fan-favorite paint-by-number mural, Animation Academy drawing experience, Broadway show, and more!
Figment’s character is featured prominently throughout the festival at EPCOT, and the popcorn bucket allows Guests to refill it with more popcorn for just $2.25, which is about the best snack value at Walt Disney World.
So, if you’re still looking to get a Figment bucket, make sure you head straight to EPCOT the next time he becomes available!
