January 19 is National Popcorn Day, and at Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, we’re celebrating everything popcorn—from the sight of bright yellow kernels is an iconic Disney Parks popcorn sleeve or souvenir bucket to the smell of salt and butter filling the air as you walk by a popcorn cart. Is there anything better than strolling down Main Street U.S.A. with a snack of piping hot popcorn?
To celebrate one of my favorite food holidays, I’m sharing a first look at a brand new souvenir popcorn bucket that will be coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Guests will be able to purchase the lotus popcorn bucket later this year. But that’s not all, this bucket also lights up, becoming a beautiful luminary.
On the West Coast, guests can look for a second edition of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 60th Anniversary bucket, available now. The bucket is available in red, blue and purple, but we’ve added that ‘Disneyland’ banner everyone knows and loves on Mickey Popcorn Balloons.
Did you know Walt Disney Parks and Resorts guests enjoy more than 540,000 pounds of popcorn annually? Recently, Pop Secret was named the official popcorn of Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, meaning our popcorn carts all sell hot, fresh Pop Secret-brand popcorn—YUM! Look for new Pop Secret co-branded popcorn scoops to arrive at Disney Parks later in 2016.
