PHOTOS: New Annual Passholder Popcorn Bucket Debuts at Walt Disney World

Recently we gave you a first look at the new Annual Passholder Popcorn Bucket that will be available exclusively to Walt Disney World Annual Passholders.

These buckets will be available at select locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

Annual Passholder Exclusive Popcorn Bucket – $13.00

This adorable plastic popcorn bucket has a large two-toned yellow band in the middle with wavey vertical lines throughout and the classic Walt Disney World “D” with Mickey Mouse in the center.

Today, we found this bucket at the City Hall Popcorn cart at The Magic Kingdom.

“Walt Disney World” is written in its classic font with “annual passholder” below. Around the bucket are larger versions of Mickey peeking up from the bottom of the bucket.

The top has a matching bright yellow lid with a yellow carrying handle. There is also a Mickey head in the center of the lid.

Annual Passholders were lined up early — as usual — to get their hands on one of these buckets. Although the Magic Kingdom had Early Extra Magic Hours and the park opened to all guests at 8:00 a.m., we were informed that the exclusive popcorn buckets wouldn’t go on sale until 9:30 a.m.

That time came and went. The Cast Member then informed everyone it would then be between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. before they could begin purchasing the bucket. The magic number was 10:30 a.m.

We were informed that you have to purchase popcorn, and it has to be in the bucket. You cannot get the popcorn on the side.

At this time, there is also no limit on how many popcorn buckets you can purchase as they are letting passholders purchase more than one.

  1. Nope. Cheesy passholder “bonus”. We were just at AK. Went by popcorn booth around 12:30 and no one was buying. Didn’t see a single one whole time there. So unless AP’s got there early and left, it was a bust.

  2. Not only was it available at Disney Studios, it was avail at 8:45am. As a result of having no cooked popcorn available they had to give us a bag of gourmet halloween popcorn. In addition they never checked if I was a passholder! Bucket was a disapointment.
