PHOTOS: Baby Simba Popcorn Bucket Now Available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Bow to the new ruler of all popcorn buckets, baby Simba!

Now available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after first being released at Hong Kong Disneyland, Walt Disney World guests can now raise the ruler of the Pridelands up in celebration of their acquisition. They can also pop him open for a treat.

The bucket may look strangely shaped, but it looks great when you hold him under his arms like Rafiki does in the film. It might be the first popcorn bucket made with the Instagram generation in mind.


I’m glad they made a unique strap for the bucket that you can only get in Florida, featuring the Animal Kingdom logo and Simba, Timon, Pumbaa, and Zazu’s silhouettes.

As we expect from Disney produced buckets (those not from Tokyo), the bucket barely hold popcorn, but it’s really cute at least.

The bucket costs $16.99 and is being sold at various popcorn carts and stands around Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
