We’re thinking Grim Grinning Grace might be in for an upset, unless she scored one of the buckets over the weekend.

While many posted about their dashed dreams of ever owning a coveted , others tweeted messages of hope, like fannylyn, who says not to worry if they’re unavailable at the park; watch the outlet store. You might even get a better price, according to her tweet.
To those of y’all worried about getting that figment bucket, don’t be. I waited over an hour for this one, just for it to be “sold out” before I could get to the register. Never restocked that I could find. I bought today AT THE OUTLET for half price and there were tons of them pic.twitter.com/a2TIN3gio4

The first became available on Friday when the of the Arts opened to Guests. Before long, wait times in the lines to purchase the buckets were four to seven hours long, but for some Guests, that didn’t seem to matter, like Jason M., who waited in for four hours, just to purchase one to give to his mom on her birthday, and one to give to a total stranger at the VERY BACK of the .
There’s been no official word at this time from Disney about extended availability of the new buckets, and at the time of publishing, we have not heard whether the buckets will be restocked, or if they have sold out entirely.**
**But we’ve got our fingers crossed for our resident Fabulous , DisneyDining writer Krysten, who’s been hoping to score one at EPCOT tomorrow!
