The anticipated Imagination Pavilion Figment popcorn bucket has arrived for the 2024 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. The festival runs from January 12 – February 19, and the bucket will be available as supply lasts.
Imagination Pavilion Figment Popcorn Bucket – $30
The bucket is shaped like the double glass pyramids of the real-life Imagination! Pavilion. The pyramids are transparent, so you can see Figment diving over a rainbow inside. Figment and the rainbow are plastic figures attached to the base of the bucket.
The popcorn bucket includes a plastic bag of rainbow popcorn inside. It’s available via mobile order on the My Disney Experience app from Figment’s Inspiration Station at the Odyssey Pavilion. With mobile order, guests select a time window that they will be at the pavilion to pick up their food/beverages/souvenirs. You can also walk up to the pavilion and order as normal, although lines may be long. There is a limit of two buckets per person, per transaction.
Figment is a little purple dragon from the Journey Into Imagination ride inside the Imagination Pavilion. He debuted as part of the original version of the ride in May 1983, alongside the Dreamfinder. Journey Into Imagination has gone through three different variations, with rumors always swirling of an update. Read more about the history of Journey Into Imagination.
The Imagination! Pavilion also houses the Magic Eye Theater, where guests can enjoy the immersive Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival, which debuted in 2015. The theater previously played the 3-D films Magic Journeys, Captain EO, and Honey, I Shrunk the Audience. At the exit of Journey Into Imagination is ImageWorks, an exhibit of interactive games. A Disney Vacation Club lounge is upstairs, where the old ImageWorks used to be.
Lights on the base inside the bucket illuminate thanks to controls on the bottom. The lights can change colors to green, yellow, blue, and more. The base inside the bucket is silver, while the outside is red.
The bucket includes an adjustable, detachable strap. It’s purple and features images of Figment enjoying the festival. The wordmark for the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is in white.
The bucket opens on the back of the larger pavilion pyramid with a door that swings down.
When you remove the popcorn, you can see Figment a little better. If you pour the popcorn out of the plastic bag, it’ll look like Figment is taking a dive into the treat.
A Figment popcorn bucket shaped like the dragon was released at the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. Guests waited in line for the bucket for seven hours on the first day. The bucket was re-released in 2023 with much shorter waits and better availability.
A Figment meet and greet opened in the Imagination! Pavilion last year and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. (with a break from 12:30 to 1:45). Disney later shared videos of the meet and greet Figment visiting Walt Disney Studios and Imagineering Headquarters, sparking more rumors of a ride update. Seth Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures is also developing a Figment film.
The popcorn bucket is available at Figment’s Inspiration Station inside the Odyssey Pavilion, which is across the park from the Imagination! Pavilion between World Discovery and World Showcase. Stay tuned for a tour of the Odyssey’s Figment-inspired decorations as well as our reviews of the exclusive food items available.
The popcorn bucket’s lights are operated by a switch on the underside of the red base. The battery compartment is also accessible on the bottom.
