PHOTOS: “The Lion King” Souvenir Popcorn Bucket Stampedes into Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Everybody look left! Everybody look right! Everywhere you look there are new Lion King buckets! The Lion King souvenir popcorn bucket has finally arrived at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and we just can’t wait to share it with you.

We found this specific one at the cart across from Tamu Tamu refreshments, but they’re available at all carts throughout the park, even the ones in DinoLand, U.S.A.

These debuted first over on the West Coast in Disney California Adventure (that’s a common pattern lately) but have finally made their way over. Note that the Mike Wazowski sipper cup is also still available here!

It’s available for $14.99 and comes filled with popcorn. The Lion King Stacking Cup advertised on the sign has yet to arrive at the park, though.

This Popcorn Bucket is double-sided, featuring a Lion on one side and sun design on the other. It comes with a removable lid and features designs around the top and bottom of the bucket that give it the appearance of an African drum.

The colorful strap features the same lion and sun designs in various colors, including orange, yellow, green, and turquoise.


The Lion King celebrates its 25th anniversary this month, culminating with the new live-action film directed by Jon Favreau debuting in theaters this July. Make sure you check out our reviews of all the new Lion King specialty snacks and beverages:

Finally a bucket that makes sense! Easy for the CMs to fill and something you can actually use at home for more popcorn! They’re at California Adventure as well. I need to get one!
