Favorite Popcorn Buckets

I do love Disney popcorn (and it might replace the Mickey Pretzel at my go to snack now that the pretzel is $3,476 - ha!) and though not a big collector of popcorn buckets, there have been some that I just had to have.

Spooky Mickey and HM Mickey were calling to me several years ago and they still make me smile everyone I look at them. If they still had the Alien bucket from the TSL opening I would have grabbed one of those too.

I also picked up one from DisneyLand a few years ago.

Who collects and which are your favorites?

I don't have any souvenir popcorn buckets. My mom bought one of the early ones, but it was just a sorta plain bucket like the resort mugs. I do like the current cauldron that I've seen. If I run across one next weekend it might be to tempting to not buy.

I'm not much of a popcorn bucket collector, but I love the Christmas Alien one from Toy Story. He's adorable!

I've read the Pluto one is $15.50 and the Alien one is $25. (Photo from a random Passholder post on another forum)

Oh my goodness I love the LGM one but $25 for it makes me go oh no. I don't even have the popcorn as I'm not that keen. I have a Tie Fighter one from Disneyland Paris. I was so careful lugging it around the Park and getting it home and then found out the wings were detachable waiting what a numpty!

Wooooooow. Way to up-charge the one everyone is going to want in order to sell more of Pluto. That's so wrong.

Interesting. I saw people with them last week but never actually saw any at the popcorn carts anywhere.

I spoke to a CM who confirmed it. Apparently when they first came out people were buying in bulk.

Ugh! I wish they wouldn't let people do that. They just end up on Ebay for 50x the price.

Too true with eBay. the Pluto one is really cute but looks uncomfortable to carry round.

From personal experience, it is! I got mine close to.when we were leaving the park and couldn't i.at one having to carry it around all all. It was awkward.
