It’s only been around a month since we first broke the news that a Steamboat Minnie balloon popcorn bucket was arriving as an annual passholder exclusive item at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, and it would seem now that WDW is getting the item.
We’ve already seen the item in the Magic Kingdom and is currently available at the popcorn stand near Cinderella Castle. Obviously this is subject to change depending on how well these begin selling, so be sure to check all the regular popcorn stands around the park if this stand runs out of stock.
For the first time ever you can also find the Steamboat Willie Mickey and Minnie popcorn buckets together in one location. Here’s the Mickey variant:
The best part is, the buckets are no longer exclusive to annual passholders so anyone can purchase them! There’s no doubt that Disney Parks is looking to increase the level of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse merchandise throughout the resorts due to the excitement of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next week!
Both the Mickey and Minnie balloon popcorn buckets can be purchased for $16 each and we suspect it won’t be long until stocks run out so get there quick.
The Mickey bucket has been around since January 2019 but we’ve found it very hit and miss in terms of being able to get hold of the bucket. It’s great to see it back in proper circulation as part of the introduction of the Minnie balloon popcorn bucket. It’s also good to see this merchandise move outside of the Disneyland Resort and into Walt Disney World.
Hopefully, we see the same thing happen with the Mickey Balloon Ears and Mickey Balloon Spirit Jersey that were both recently introduced in Disneyland.
