    I'm going on my first Disney Cruise and I heard that there are popcorn buckets on board, is this true? If so, are the buckets also refillable and what styles do they come in?

    Well ahoy there Ashley, and welcome aboard planDisney!

    From one Canadian to another, I am so stoked about your first Disney Cruise Line voyage this summer and am happy to bestow upon you some nautical knowledge before you set sail! As a fellow popcorn connoisseur, my husband would be so happy to hear that there are other folks just like him who really want to know about the most important things at sea - like the availability of the lucrative treasure that is a Disney popcorn bucket!

    You'll be happy to hear that there are indeed popcorn buckets available to purchase with styles that seem to vary across each of the ships in the fleet, the time of year, and may depend on which ones are sent out to the home port.  On my most recent sailing this past month on board the Disney Wish, there was a Disney 100th Anniversary Platinum Balloon popcorn container just like the one available at Disneyland Resort. These were found at Preludes, just outside of the Walt Disney Theatre and I can confirm that they were refillable over the course of our voyage and charged to our room. 

    While offerings and availability may be subject to change without prior notice, it would be wonderful if there were special popcorn buckets designed to celebrate the 25th Silver Anniversary at Sea this year! I recommend getting your hands on the popcorn container of your choice early on your voyage so that you can take advantage of discounted refills all cruise long, especially if you get a chance to watch a movie up on the upper decks under the stars. On select sailings, you might even be treated to a special movie premiere at sea!

    Don't hesitate to come back to planDisney to ask me more questions ahead of your adventures at any Disney Destinations, alongside my seasoned sailing pals Tracie and Adrianna who are our dedicated Disney Cruise Line Specialists.

    Wishing you clear skies, smooth sailing, and buckets of popcorn on your upcoming voyage!
