Hollywood Studios unveils a new Popcorn mix, but you’ve got to know the secret code to get it

There’s been a lot of talk about popcorn at Walt Disney World this week, but we bet you don’t know about this popcorn.

Last Friday marked the opening day of EPCOT’s 2022 International Festival of the Arts, and while many Guests came to the park for the art, the creativity, and the cuisine, they stayed for the popcorn.

Well, the popcorn bucket anyway. In celebration of the Festival of the Arts, EPCOT debuted an adorable lavender Figment popcorn bucket. Disney first unveiled the new popcorn bucket via TikTok several days before the festival opened.

So when the gates opened at EPCOT on Friday morning, Guests made a beeline for the Pop Eats booth to be the first to own a Figment popcorn bucket that came with rainbow popcorn. It was a popcorn bucket phenomenon as some Guests waited in line for as long as 6 hours just for the chance to purchase one.

As the orchestra of noise from the Figment bucket and rainbow popcorn phenomenon of 2022 played loud, another member of the Disney popcorn family was just being born, but you might not have heard about it yet.

The newest popcorn mix at Disney World isn’t Figment’s rainbow mix, but a new mix that just debuted on Wednesday–National Popcorn Day by the way–at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The MSE-6 Series Repair Droid popcorn bucket first made its debut before the pandemic, and if you’re a Star Wars buff and a Disney popcorn connoisseur, you may already have the so-called “Mouse Droid” popcorn bucket. But you haven’t had the new popcorn flavor that has just become available at Galaxy’s Edge.mouse droid popcorn

The new mix doesn’t have an official name, but you’ll need to sound official if you want to try it. That’s because without the secret passcode, you won’t be able to score a single kernel. Be sure to say the words, “Have you seen a Mouse?” when you visit Kat Saka’s so you can try the new mix before it’s gone!

The mix will only be available through February 28. May the Force be with you!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
