    As an annual passholder can I bring the popcorn bucket I purchased in December to the park and get it refilled for the refill price in January?

    Hi Jacqueline,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for popping by with your question. Ooooooh, do I ever love Walt Disney World popcorn. My family always buys a refillable bucket, and we refill it countless times during our vacations. We have quite a collection of souvenir buckets at home!

    Popcorn bucket refills are valid for “length of stay.” I asked a Walt Disney World popcorn vendor about this on our last visit, because we visited during a week where the bucket design changed from Halloween to Christmas. She told me that it’s an honor system, and generally they will refill a bucket as long as it is the current season’s design, which changes regularly. In cases like ours, where the vendors knew that the design had only recently changed over (in the midst of many Guests' length of stay), there was a grace period.

    I’m an Annual Passholder too, and I would love to see an Annual Passholder popcorn bucket come to Walt Disney World. At this time, there is no Annual Passholder Special Offer for popcorn refills. I believe they have tested the concept at Disneyland Resort, so let’s wish for some Passholder Pixie dust in The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    I’m wishing you a wonderful January visit, Jacqueline! There are so many exciting new offerings rolling out this month, and #NowMoreThanEver it’s a perfect time for a trip to Walt Disney World. Enjoy!

    Wishing you magical vacation,
