These balloon-themed buckets made their debut in Disneyland in 2015 as part of the park’s 60th Anniversary — the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Here is one achieving its popcorn-filled destiny in Disney California Adventure.

In Disneyland, they also came out in blue and purple (and we’ve seen elusive yellow ones, too!). For the time being, we’ve only spotted this one in red in Magic Kingdom — and at limited popcorn carts at that. We found them today, for instance, at the Storybook Circus popcorn cart and noticed them at just a few others. But they’re not at every cart. At least not yet!

The price for the Mickey Balloon Popcorn Bucket is $15.00, and the refill price is $1.75 (or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit). So, if you love these…



… be sure to grab one of THESE the next time you’re in Magic Kingdom!

    Margaret, there’s a small door on the back of the balloon that opens downward. If you want to see what I mean, there are some images on Google. :)

    Aline, the official word is that you can get popcorn bucket refills for the length of stay during which you purchased the bucket.
