The Perfect Picnic Basket Popcorn Bucket is now available at Walt Disney World Resort after first debuting in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland.
The popcorn bucket is available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting today, May 15. Disney did not announce an exact location, but it is likely available at popcorn carts near Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. It resembles a classic picnic basket, with a red checked blanket peeking out, and a large white Mickey glove holding the handle. It includes a light blue strap featuring items from Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
The basket is $25.99 at Disneyland and includes your choice of three select items plus one beverage. At Disneyland, you can also upgrade to the Perfect Picnic Pack, which adds a picnic blanket for a total of $36. The blanket can also be purchased separately for $14.99. It seems like the Walt Disney World version will just come with popcorn.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in March 2020, just days before Walt Disney World was forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened with the rest of the park a few months later.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened at Disneyland in January 2023, ahead of the rest of the reimagined Mickey’s Toontown. The two versions of the ride are almost identical, but their façades and queues are significantly different.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is housed in the classic Chinese Theatre. The gift shop outside, Great Movie Finds, is named after the attraction Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway replaced: The Great Movie Ride.
In the pre-show, guests view some of the “Perfect Picnic” short created for the ride before entering the cartoon itself. They then board a train driven by Goofy, but things go awry when the train cars disconnect. Mickey and Minnie, who were heading to a picnic with Pluto, race after the cars, keeping guests out of harm’s way.

At Disneyland, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is in the El CapiTOON Theater with the EngineEar Souvenirs gift shop. Before hopping on the Runnamuck Railroad train, guests pass by a concessions stand and various Mickey animation memorabilia in the Mickey Through the Ears Exhibit. Despite its relative newness, the queue for this attraction has already suffered some damage we previously reported on, as some guests have apparently broken and removed props from the experience.
The Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway queue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios also saw some damage to its wall decals in 2022.
