    We are traveling to Disneyland the last week of Feb 2024. Can we take our refillable popcorn buckets from WDW with us and does Disneyland offer the same deal as WDW at $2.25 per refilll if you are at the park just on a regular ticket and not a MK pass?

    Hi there, Lisa! Welcome to planDisney! 

    I'm so happy to hear that you'll be visiting The Happiest Place on Earth next week. As someone who loves visiting both the California and Florida Disney parks, I love comparing the differences and similarities between them. I'm curious to know what you think!

    Lisa, your question is on one of my favorite topics at the Disneyland Resort - popcorn! Who can resist the buttery goodness? And, is it just me, or is it extra magical when it's at Disney? My family personally owns a dozen or so of the reusable popcorn buckets from Disneyland and Walt Disney World (WDW), and we love to use them during family movie nights. Watching "Tarzan" with a Disneyland popcorn bucket is pretty close to perfection!

    While you can certainly bring your WDW popcorn bucket to Disneyland, I am sorry to say that Disneyland does not offer the refill option to all Guests like Walt Disney World. Additionally, popcorn bucket refills are only good for the length of your stay at Walt Disney World, and would not transfer to another visit or, in this case, a different Disney Resort. My planDisney Pal Brent would say popcorn refills are one of the reasons why Walt Disney World is on the best coast... and I would have to agree with him on this point. Popcorn refills are a highlight of any WDW trip! I can never resist grabbing a popcorn bucket refill with Maple Popcorn at the Canada Pavilion in EPCOT. Alas, unless you are a Magic Key pass holder with the limited-time-only refillable Magic Key popcorn bucket, Disneyland does not have popcorn refills as an option for all Guests.

    Lisa, did you know that the Disneyland Resort website has a list of all of their Popcorn Cart locations? Additionally, you can download the Disneyland Mobile App and use the app's search function to type "popcorn" to find the nearest popcorn cart! My favorite Disneyland popcorn cart is the one near the Mark Twain Riverboat.

    I hope this answers your question, Lisa. Please feel free to swing back by like Tarzan with any other questions you may have!

    See ya real soon,
