    Will the Dug popcorn bucket be coming to Walt Disney World?

    Hi there, Lora!

    Thanks for "popping" in to planDisney with your question. I'm happy to help!

    As of now, the adorable Dug popcorn bucket is only available at Disneyland in California. But don't lose hope! Disney has a magical way of sharing its most beloved merchandise across parks, so it’s entirely possible that the super-cute Up-themed popcorn bucket might find its way to Walt Disney World in the future. Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned for updates – I know I will!

    In the meantime, you can still enjoy the delicious and iconic popcorn at Walt Disney World in a variety of fun popcorn bucket choices! There's nothing quite like the buttery, salty goodness of Disney popcorn as you stroll through the parks. Did you know that if you purchase a popcorn bucket in the theme parks, you can get unlimited refills for a minimal charge? We like to purchase a bucket at the beginning of a Walt Disney World vacation and carry it to the parks with us throughout the week for refills. Since we typically drive to Walt Disney World for our vacations, I also like to refill the bucket on the last evening to enjoy on the ride home. Nothing like taking a bit of the magic on the road!

    While you wait for the Dug popcorn bucket to potentially arrive, there’s an exciting new character experience to enjoy at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park! Talking Dug from the movie "Up" now roams the park with Kevin, the colorful bird. Dug and Kevin are “surprise and delight” characters, which means they don't have scheduled meet-and-greet times, adding a bit of unexpected magic if you happen to spot them in the park. Imagine hearing Dug’s enthusiastic “Squirrel!” as he interacts with guests, making for an unforgettable moment. Keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready; you never know when you might stumble upon this pair of adventurers. 

    I plan to keep my eyes and ears open for any announcements about the Dug popcorn bucket coming to Walt Disney World! If I ever get my hands on one, I’m likely to look at it and say, “I have just met you, and I love you”, just like Dug!
