    We are visiting the Disney water parks in May 2018 . Will I be able to purchase the new Mickey balloon popcorn bucket out side of the theme parks?

    Hi Brandi!

    Aren't the new Mickey Balloon Specialty Popcorn Buckets the cutest?? I'm also going to Walt Disney World Resort in May, and so far this new bucket is the only thing on my 'Must Do' list. Not gonna lie, I want to use it as a purse later. I'm not a collector of Disney's popcorn buckets but fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist Andrea is. She even uses them in her classroom as supply organizers. What a genius way to keep things tidy AND work a bit more Disney into your day!!

    While I don't have the proper magic mirror to exactly pinpoint where these little beauties will be found, I do have a few ideas. Specialty Popcorn Buckets are usually found in a single park, often close to what they represent. The light-up Lotus Blossom bucket in Disney's Animal Kingdom Park celebrates the nighttime show Rivers of Light. Disneyland Park has a Lightning McQueen bucket in Cars Land. While I haven't heard anything official about the Mickey Balloon's exact locations, I would think these new buckets will be found in parks and areas where you can normally find actual Mickey Balloons. (These buckets might look out of place in Disney's Animal Kingdom as that park doesn't sell balloons due to the safety of the animals.) Don't forget to keep an eye out at Disney Springs!

    Definitely keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they've written about new specialty buckets in the past, and included their locations. I follow them across all social media platforms so I'm sure to never miss an update!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Brandi!
