Calling all ghouls and ghosts who love Disney-themed food novelties – Halloween is almost here at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, and this year we’ve got a whole new set of novelty items for you to enjoy! Available at various times throughout the Halloween season, you never know when they will materialize … and remember – these popular novelties sell out fast, so be on the lookout and keep this guide handy during your search!
First up is the Happy Halloween 2018 Base Popcorn Bucket –this year’s design features Mickey and Minnie all decked out in their Halloween best as well as Chip and Dale as adorable little bats! A similar design is featured on the Happy Halloween 2018 Base Travel Mug. The base popcorn bucket can be found at various popcorn locations across Disneyland park at Disneyland Resort and Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort. The base travel mug will be available as a non-refillable mug available across Disneyland Resort, while the base travel mug at Walt Disney World Resort will be available as a refillable mug (only refillable for the duration of your stay) available at all resort hotels across property.
Only available at Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort is the Disney California Adventure Oogie Boogie Base Popcorn Bucket. Featuring everyone’s favorite villain from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” and even a familiar Headless Horseman, you’ll find this base popcorn bucket at the Buena Vista, Grizzly Peak, Pixar Pier, and Hyperion Popcorn Carts.
Do you remember last year’s Oogie Boogie Premium Popcorn Bucket? Well, I’ve got good news! This popular bucket is returning again this year to Disneyland Resort! Roll the dice with your popcorn-filled Oogie Boogie available at the Disney California Adventure park Popcorn Carts and at the New Orleans Popcorn Cart at Disneyland park.
But that’s not all – a new version of this popular bucket will be available exclusively at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort – and later in the season at Disneyland Resort.
Double, double toil and trouble – get ready to cast some spells, brew a potion, and make that delicious popcorn disappear with the new Cauldron Premium Popcorn Bucket. Starting mid-September, this light-up bucket will be available at Disneyland park at Disneyland Resort and all four parks and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort! And it even features a Hidden Mickey … but you’ll have to find that one on your own!
The Poison Apple Glow Cube is also back again this year in three different colors! You’ll find this spooky light-up cube floating in specialty drinks on both coasts. At Walt Disney World Resort, get the Green Poison Apple Glow Cube at AbracadaBar at Disney’s BoardWalk or Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs. At Disneyland Resort, you’ll find Green and Red Poison Apple Glow Cubes at various locations throughout Disneyland Resort. But there’s also a new color this year – a Purple Poison Apple Glow Cube! This one is available exclusively at Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure park.
If the cube just isn’t enough, though, you can get the Green Poison Apple Stein! You’ll find it throughout Disneyland Resort as well as various outdoor vending locations throughout Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort.
The Headless Horseman Straw Clip returns this year as well. You’ll find him galloping around at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort and throughout the Disneyland Resort!
Get ready to burn rubber with the Tire Pumpkin Straw – the ultimate “Haul-o-ween” novelty. Inspired by Halloween at Cars Land, you’ll find this light-up straw at the Cozy Cone Motel and Flo’s V8 Café at Disney California Adventure park. And what’s more – they’ve driven on over to Walt Disney World Resort too! Find them at various quick-service locations throughout Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
Remember – these amazingly spooktacular Halloween novelties are quite popular and are only available while supplies last! These novelty items will be available at various times throughout September and October at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort begins August 17. Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort begins September 7.
And if you’re interested in those fun Halloween sweets, fear not! My 2018 Halloween Disney Parks Foodie Guides are soon to come. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog to find out more!
All Disneyland Resort 2018 Halloween Premium and Base Popcorn Buckets and 2018 Halloween Travel Mugs are non-refillable. All Walt Disney World Resort 2018 Halloween Premium and Base Popcorn Buckets are refillable during your length of stay for $1.75 per refill. Walt Disney World Resort 2018 Halloween Travel Mugs are refillable during your length of stay.
All of the novelty items listed above are only available for a limited time while supplies last. Prices are subject to change without notice.
Are these refillable day of purchase only or can you bring them back for refills?
how much are the refills?
I’m really looking forward to possibly purchasing the NEW Neon-colored Oogie Boogie Popcorn Bucket. We’re going in mid-October. Can you tell us the exact date it will start being available at MNSSHP at Disneyland?
Any idea where the Tire Pumpkin Straw might be at Walt Disney World???
Is there any update on the Trader Sam’s Halloween Tiki Mugs? We are headed there 10/4 and hope to be able to get one
We are going to the party on October 21st. All the novelty items say while supplies last. Does that mean that none of the Halloween items like the Headless Horseman straw, the glow-in-the-dark popcorn holders, and some of the party exclusive items will be sold out by then?
So no date or info on where the tire pumpkin straw is sold? I’ve been to every park and asked and no cast member had any clue what I was talking about, even showing them the picture. Very disappointing.
Made a special trip to the Hanger Bar this evening for the Glow Cube and was disappointed to find out they don’t have them in stock and aren’t sure when they will arrive. It was the whole reason for going there. Where in Magic Kingdom is the Headless Horseman straw clip?
Aloha! Is the NEW Oogie Boogie Popcorn the only one that is MNSSHP Exclusive? Also, does he GLOW like last years? Finally, what date do all of these arrive at Disneyland/DCA? We are going on 9/26 for MNSSHP. Mahalo!
Will the red poison apple cup be coming back? Or only the green this year?
Will there be a Disney Parks blog event for people to experience the new Halloween additions after or before hours? If so when will this opportunity open up? I miss it everytime:(
This comment is an answer to Mike about candy buckets at MNSSHP. I’m a cast member at WDW and have attended (ahem) quite a few of these parties. In the past, you are given a sturdy lunch bag type container with handles when you get wristbanded for the party. Of course, there are more interesting candy vessels available for purchase inside the park if you wish. Enjoy the party!
Will the pumpkin mickey head shaped popcorn bucket be available again this year?
Is the poison popcorn bucket and/or the pumpkin straw going to be available on the San Diego Halloween on the High Seas cruises? We’re going the middle of October but can’t squeeze in a trip to Disneyland too…too expensive, not enough time!
So is any of this stuff coming to Disneyland Paris?
Hi! We are attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in October. Will the kids receive a bucket to collect candy in as part of the ticket? Or is this something additional we will have to purchase? Thanks!
Hello! I am traveling for Mickey’s Not-So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom this year. Just to make sure I got this right, the new Green Poison Apple Stein won’t be available at the party, but only Animal Kingdom? We are just coming for the weekend so were going to skip Animal Kingdom this time around so we can fit food and wine and check out Toy Storyland….kind of disappointing that we can’t get it at Magic Kingdom where the party takes place….
Thanks for the info halloween has always been my favorite time of year and I’m loving all the new stuff I was in the marketplace for a half hour this morning looking at all the great new designs can’t wait to hear about all the delicious treats in your next post.
Oh my goodness! This blog appeared at the perfect time. I was just thinking about how I am very ready to be done with summer, and how I am eager to fast forward to September to get the Halloween season started at Disneyland Resort. I know that some Halloween Time merchandise items usually begin to appear at Disneyland Resort in August, but I didn’t think we’d get a blog about it this early in the month. Thank you, Alex!! I can’t wait for the 2018 Halloween Disney Parks Foodie Guides!
Thank you Alex for posting these items! They look wonderful and the team did an awesome job designing them. Could you please list prices, I believe that’s the only thing missing from this spooktacular post!
Many years ago we went to WDW in October, it was the first and only time we had gone during that month, there was only Autumn decorations around then.
I see how much we are missing now with the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party that I think I might have to schedule two trips in 2019 our usual time slot and maybe a quick little 5 day jaunt to take in all these incredible experiences!
Will Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and Grog Grotto be getting anything this year? Another Hitchhiking Ghosts mug? Or something new?
Hi Jay! A new seasonal tiki mug will be coming out to socialize at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World Resort as well as Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel later in the Halloween season. Keep a wary eye out for more info!
For those at WDW on the dining plan, will they be able to choose the Halloween print for their refillable mug that comes with the plan or will that have to stick to choosing the regular print?
Hi Samantha! Yes, guests purchasing a mug as part of their Disney Dining Plan may choose the Halloween design while supplies last.
So folks going to the first parties at Walt Disney World won’t have a chance to get a Cauldron Premium Popcorn Bucket? :_(
Hi Rachel! At Walt Disney World Resort, both the new Oogie Boogie Premium Popcorn Bucket and the Cauldron Premium Popcorn Bucket will be available at Magic Kingdom Park during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party starting August 17!
Why are these items only available during September and October when the MNSSHP parties start in August? My family and I were so excited to be able to go on 24th August but it’s not the same if we can’t get any of the special merchandise…very disappointing!
