    Can I use my snack credits to get a popcorn bucket. If not may I pay some sort of upcharge?

    Hello Brandy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Popcorn is my family’s absolute favorite snack at the Walt Disney World Resort. We just love exploring the parks while having some delicious popcorn, especially from a super convenient popcorn bucket. Some of my friends even collect buckets, and the object of everyone’s desire right now is the Mickey-shaped balloon bucket.

    The Disney Dining Plan offers each Guest per night of their stay 2 snacks that can be used throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Popcorn is an eligible snack, however are able to purchase a single serving of a popcorn scoop. At this time it is not possible to use your entitlements towards a popcorn bucket, but I must say that I think it is a very good deal to buy one. The bucket is good for the duration of your stay, and the refills have a great price, which means you can use your snack entitlements for breakfast items, and even for classic goodies such as Dole Whips, Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bars, Mickey-shaped pretzels, and other delicious treats.

    Since you like popcorn, don’t forget to visit the popcorn cart located in Future World West at Epcot where you’ll find buffalo bleu cheese, sour cream and chive, and cheddar cheese popcorn. Go over to Canada in the World Showcase to try the delicious maple popcorn, and stop by the Germany pavilion for the amazing sweet and salty kernels that can be found at Karamell-Küche.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Brandy! Please stop by if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
