    We are going on a Disney cruise next month. I see information about popcorn buckets. can you tell me what those cost on the ship?

    Hi Lindsey,

    Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you sailed by again! 

    There is something extra special about Disney popcorn, so I'm glad you are setting your sights on the salty snack during your Disney Cruise Line vacation. While the Cast Member I spoke with could not confirm the exact price, you can expect to pay around $20 for one of the specialty Character buckets and about $8.50 for the traditional bucket. Refills for both are currently $1.50. All prices are subject to change, but this should give you a budgeting ballpark.

    Since some Character buckets pop off the shelves quickly, I recommend stopping by Preludes to buy your favorite on the first evening of your cruise. You will also get every kernel of savings from refills if you purchase your bucket at the beginning of your voyage. 

    When making your packing list, Lindsey, remember to make space to get your bucket home so you can enjoy a little Disney magic after your vacation.  And while we are talking souvenirs, remember to stop by the shops onboard once you set sail to check out all the amazing memorabilia available. I recommend purchasing anything you fall in love with as soon as you see it since items may sell out by the end of the cruise.

    Stop by planDisney again anytime! My pals and I have bucket-loads of tips to share!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
