When it comes to Disney Parks, sometimes it can feel as if Disney plays favorites. Walt Disney World Resort fans and Disneyland Resort fans are constantly debating over which Resort is given the better attractions, merchandise, food, and other offerings. Every year, fans feel frustrated to find out that something Disney released that they wanted would not be available at their home resort.
That has been the case for many fans when it comes to this year’s Halloween decorations.
Spooky-Time Merchandise Delights and Frights Guests!
Right now, both Disneyland and Walt Disney World are fully celebrating their incredible annual Halloween festivities. If you didn’t know, Disney is no stranger to the spooky time season. Every year around this time, the Parks are adorned with Halloween decorations and offerings to delight and frighten every Guest.
One of the most highly anticipated parts of Halloween is getting to see what Halloween merchandise Disney begins offering at each of their Parks. Every year, Disney offers a wide range of Disney Halloween merchandise to enhance the festive experience, and these pieces typically sell out very quickly.
While both Parks offer exceptional Halloween parties with the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park and the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure Park, the merchandise selections between the two Parks are not exactly equal. This year, it seems that fans feel that Disneyland Resort overall got the better Halloween merchandise.
Did Disneyland “Win” Halloween?
There is no denying that Disneyland fans really scored with the merchandise this year, specifically when it comes to sippers and popcorn buckets. There are so many incredible offerings, including the Haunted Mansion Tiki Mug, the Minnie Mouse Hocus Pocus Sipper, and, of course, the Mickey Mouse Skeleton Popcorn Bucket.
Back in August, Disney Parks announced that this adorable new Mickey Mouse Skeleton Popcorn Bucket would be available at Disneyland Park this Halloween season. Immediately, the jealousy began to set in for fans on the east coast. However, after weeks of begging, Disney has made a thrilling announcement.
Starting now, fans at Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World Resort will also be able to purchase this adorable souvenir. If you hope to snag one, be sure to do so as soon as possible, as there is no doubt these buckets will be flying off the shelves!
