    I live in California and have a Magic Key for Disneyland/California Adventure, and we bought a refillable Magic Key popcorn bucket. We are taking a vacation to Disney World next week. Will I able to use my refillable Magic Key popcorn bucket there?

    Hi there, Alina,

    Sounds like you've got a friend in me because I absolutely love visiting the Disney Parks on both coasts. It's always fun comparing the subtle differences in attractions featured at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort and just soaking in all the tiny details that make each of the parks so unique. Though Disneyland Park will always hold a special place in my heart as the home to Walt's spirit, it's hard not to be impressed when you take in that first spectacular view of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park.

    It can already tell you've been making fantastic snack choices as a Magic Key Holder at your home parks. Refillable popcorn buckets are the perfect way to make sure you're never without a kernel of such a delicious buttery treat. I can practically smell the popcorn right now!

    Although refillable buckets are a budget-friendly way to snack around the parks, they, unfortunately, aren't designed for use coast to coast.  I just chatted with a Cast Member who advised me that refillable buckets purchased at Walt Disney World Resort are designated for use during the length of stay. He mentioned that although you are certainly welcome to bring yours along for your trip, there is no guarantee you'd be able to use it for discounted refills while visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth. I'd suggest saving the room in your luggage and leaving your Magic Key Holder bucket at home this time. You can pick up a new one to enjoy during this visit and then take it home as a fun souvenir, or save the space in your checked bags for other special purchases.

    I hope this helps prepare you for a most magical visit!
