EPCOT’s small but mighty purple dragon, we all know and love as Figment, is stealing the attention at Walt Disney World Resort. With the launch of the 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, here’s how to get your hands on one of the coveted Figment popcorn buckets without the hours-long line.
The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts has officially begun with special entertainment, unique bites and sips, and memorable experiences throughout the Disney Park. Figment, from the EPCOT attraction Journey Into Imagination With Figment, has the spotlight of the EPCOT Festival with merchandise, a segment of the Beacon of Magic show, and colorful Figment-inspired food.
Of course, the coveted item EVERYONE seems to want is the Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket which was first available at last year’s 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. Lines in 2022 were close to four hours long…. yes, for a popcorn bucket!
Now, Disney is saying, DO NOT GET IN LINE. Instead, there is a new way to snag the Figment popcorn bucket, which is located at Figment’s Inspiration Station at The Odyssey events pavilion in EPCOT. Gone are the long lines as a virtual queue has arrived.
@AshleyLCarter1 took to social media to share, “The Figment popcorn bucket is available to mobile order through the My Disney Experience app. You’ll be able to select a time to pick it up at EPCOT.” Furthermore, Disney shares details on how to place the order for the Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket as follows:
Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket: Purchase the Figment Premium Popcorn Bucket using the mobile order feature. A limited quantity is available as part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts presented by AT&T. How does it work?
- On the day of your visit to EPCOT, open your My Disney Experience App.
- Tap the (+) icon an select “Order Food.”
- Choose an available mobile order arrival window for “EPCOT Souvenir Release.”

- When you receive a notification that your order is ready, go to the mobile order pick-up window at the Odyssey building – between Test Track and the Mexico Pavilion – for your premium popcorn bucket.

Last year, the Figment Popcorn bucket sold out. We’re hoping Disney will have plenty of extras stocked up for this year’s Festival, which lasts through February 20, 2023. That said, we highly recommend getting on the virtual queue as soon as possible when arriving at EPCOT, as you just never know if Disney will sell out of the beloved Figment bucket again this year.
