    Are popcorn buckets refillable on DCL? I saw where you can bring a popcorn bucket from WDW or DL or a previous cruise and it can be refilled. Is this accurate?

    Ahoy there, Andrea! Thanks for sailing our way here at planDisney! 

    Ah, the near-legendary popcorn buckets. With changes of souvenir sippers and popcorn buckets a commonality between both the parks and Disney Cruise Line, it's always fun to see what will be available on your sailing! Depending on the ship and specific sailing, there could be a fun seasonal bucket available in addition to the ones we're accustomed to seeing aboard the ships!

    I sailed on over to double-check with a crew member and was able to confirm that popcorn buckets are meant to be refilled only for the duration of your sailing, so I can't recommend bringing a popcorn bucket from either Walt Disney World Resort, a previous cruise, or Disneyland Resort to be refilled. As Rapunzel told Flynn when they first met: call it fate, destiny... a horse...but I've made the decision to trust you! 

    Now you may be surprised to learn this, but in my more than 15 years of sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line, not once have I bought popcorn! Nothing against it, though, as I do love the smell of the popcorn when it wafts through the air outside the Buena Vista Theatre and from Preludes at the Walt Disney Theatre entrances! I've just never found myself hungry enough for popcorn with all the amazing dining options aboard the fleet! 

    So whether you decide to partake in the popcorn life and snag a new souvenir bucket aboard or subsist on the smell alone to curb your craving, I hope you have an incredible time this December, Andrea! Thank you for your question, and if you have any others as your cruise gets closer to the horizon, please drop us another line here at planDisney! 

    Fair winds and following seas!
