    Hi, I’m an annual pass holder. Can I buy a popcorn bucket and refill for the rest of the year? I obviously only sporadically visit between work, so it wouldn’t be beneficial for me to buy a bucket every month. Thanks, Phoebe

    Hiya, Phoebe! Thanks for popping by with your awesome question.

    The refillable popcorn buckets at Walt Disney World are one of my favorite money-saving tips for Disney vacations. Popcorn is an easy and excellent snack for those busy park days, and if you buy a refillable bucket you can enjoy discounted refills for the length of your stay. Unfortunately, you would need to purchase a new bucket for each subsequent trip to enjoy those discounted refills. I know this might sound like a bummer, Phoebe, but please let me share that my family saves all our Disney popcorn buckets for family movie night. We have amassed quite a collection between Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, and Disney Cruise Line, and each one represents a special memory of a fun vacation.

    Phoebe, make sure to stop for some Popcorn at the Canada Pavilion in EPCOT. The maple popcorn is one of my favorite snacks in the entire Resort and is like a warm maple-y hug. Better yet it is eligible for the special popcorn refill discount!

    If you're on a trip and don't need another reusable popcorn bucket, please rest assured there are other options for your popcorn fix. Have you visited Kernel Kitchen inside Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom Park yet? There, you can custom-build your perfect popcorn mix with a variety of toppings. They often have seasonal mixes that are a must-try for my family. This is both an experience and a snack! Or pop by a favorite of my planDisney classmate Jennifer -  Karamell-Küche in EPCOT. I always grab a bag of Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn for my trip home!

    Phoebe, thanks for letting me share a kernel of wisdom with you. Please visit us again soon!

    Have a magical day,
