Disney popcorn buckets are a new trend with Guests, and resellers have taken notice.

Recently, however, one reseller was caught red-handed with the newest popcorn bucket.

Disney World is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” Being the most magical place on earth, Guests tend to think they deserve greatness such as short waits, no errors, and speedy service. Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney Park includes something for all Guests.

Disney World has just finished celebrating 50 years and, now, the company is moving forward with celebrating 100 years. Guests have spotted new merchandise and signs about the 100-year celebration, which will be held at EPCOT.

Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, there is also a major celebration going on as the theme park is celebrating 25 years. Disney’s Animal Kingdom is home to a massive amount of different animals and thrilling attractions. Guests can get up close and personal with many animals, thanks to the Kilimanjaro Safaris. Disney World Guests looking for a minute to relax can enjoy shows such as Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!, or Festival of the Lion King. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Guests can also explore Pandora, which is based on the Avatar franchise.

Guests have started to go crazy over Disney World popcorn buckets. In recent years, the Figment Popcorn Bucket absolutely broke the internet when Guests waited in line more than eight hours for the chance to get their hands on the adorable dragon at EPCOT. Since that point, there have been a few other popcorn buckets and sippers that have been popular among Disney Park fans, but they have yet to reach the popularity of that Figment bucket.

That has yet to stop many resellers from trying their best to get their hands on quite a few popcorn buckets, including the newest one, modeled after Pumbaa from The Lion King.

This new Pumbaa bucket just was released on April 22, 2023, and Guests have already shown a craze for it.  In a social media post, Guests caught a popcorn bucket reseller red-handed with a handful of Pumbaa popcorn buckets.

This Guest may not be a reseller, but normally, when someone buy several popcorn buckets at a time, you see them available for sell on third-party sites pretty soon thereafter.

Will this new popcorn bucket turn into another Figment bucket? Have you seen the new buckets around Disney’s Animal Kingdom?
