    Refilled popcorn buckets… Do we have to buy a new bucket design each visit. We came in 2021, do those buckets work for refills. I want to get a millennium falcon bucket for my kids for Christmas, but I’m afraid it won’t work at Hollywood in 2024?

    Hi Kathyrn, welcome back to planDisney!

    One of my favorite snacks at Walt Disney World is the hot, buttery popcorn!  I purchase a new popcorn souvenir bucket every vacation as I find it's a delicious, cost-saving snack.  There are so many uses for the popcorn bucket once you are home.  Of course, you can pop your own popcorn to fill your bucket but I also like to use them to collect loose change, planters, or outside in the garden.  

    When you purchase a souvenir popcorn bucket from one of the carts at a Walt Disney World theme park, it is meant to be used for refills for the length of your stay, as stated on the menu. The popcorn refills are available for a lower cost and there is no limit on how many times you'd like to refill your popcorn bucket during your vacation.  And, if you are on a Disney Dining Plan, popcorn refills can be used as a snack.

    In addition to the regular popcorn, my other favorite is the maple popcorn which you can find in the Canada Pavilion at EPCOT.  Amazing popcorn and it is also eligible for lower-cost refills.  If you haven't tried this flavor yet, I highly recommend it!

    Since we are talking about popcorn, I can't let you go without mentioning the popcorn at the Karamell-Kuche, located in EPCOT in the Germany pavilion. If you like caramel, this is the place to visit for all kinds of snacks.  Although not included with the popcorn refills, this caramel-flavored popcorn is amazing and a treat to remember!

    Have a magical vacation, Kathyrn!
