    Are you able to bring a souvenir popcorn bucket back each year and pay for refills or do you have to buy a new one each year?

    Greetings Jose!

    Welcome back, we are so happy to see you visiting us here at planDisney. Disney snacks are honestly my favorite! I am a total foodie and plan out my daily park snacks the moment after I book my vacation. If I had to choose a favorite snack, it would be the Kakigōri with Sweet Milk Topping from Kabuki Cafe at EPCOT. My Mouseketeers also enjoy their Disney treats. They have a hard time choosing between the popcorn or a churro, I mean churroS, because you can never just have one. Most of the time, they go with the popcorn because of the incredibly themed popcorn buckets! 

    The refill price applies during the length of your stay only, so you will need to purchase a new bucket to enjoy the refill prices. The great thing is that the standard bucket designs changes frequently, so you can start a fun collection of buckets! My family has started that with the resort refillable mugs. (Tip: I like to bring our old popcorn buckets with us, in addition to purchasing a new one, so we can split up the popcorn with the family). My kids hang onto one bucket, while my husband and I share the other! It’s the perfect way to enjoy a Disney snack without asking to “pass the bucket” after every handful.

    Enjoy your treats, Jose. If you need any more snack recommendations or other planning tips, be sure to visit us again. We’re always all EARs!
