Popcorn, popcorn! For some reason popcorn at the Disneyland Resort always tastes like the best popcorn you have ever had. The buttery-saltiness is the perfect combination. And that smell, yes, it’s pretty magical! Did you know that for 60 years, popcorn has been severed at the resort? Since opening day, popcorn has been a staple at the park.


Disney Parks Blog gave a recap of some of the popcorn buckets guests have experienced over the years. Each one is so unique and tells a different story. But get this, over 185,000 pounds of popcorn is consumed at the Disneyland Resort each year by guests.

Let’s take a look at these past buckets.

Also, just in time for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, there will be brand new popcorn buckets arriving at the parks. These popcorn buckets are shaped like the balloons that can be found throughout the resort. Be sure to keep an eye open for these as they will be rolling out in May.

    If there are multiple colors, I feel like there’s going to be a hunt for each color bucket for some guests come May.

    I will be going to Disneyland at the end of May for the 60th celebration. I am hoping to buy an R2D2 popcorn bucket. I’ve searched everywhere on the web to see if they are still available to buy there but no one seems to know. I’m hoping you can tell me or if I will be disappointed that it is no longer being sold. I appreciate a response. I eagerly wait. Thank you!

      I will have to look again. I know I saw the Darth Vader one. 🙂 Best wishes! I’ll try to get you an answer asap.

    Thank you for the quick response. I did see during my research on the net that recent visitors said they saw the Darth Vadar and the Stormtrooper popcorn bucket but they did not see the R2D2. I hope this was not a replacement. I also heard that at Tomorrowland Terrace they sell the R2D2 mug with a handle as a souvenir mug when you order the chocolate parfait. Does anyone know if this is still available? I also heard that they sell it as some “pizza port” as well. I do hope to find either the R2D2 popcorn bucket or this R2D2 mug with the handle. If you could find out before my 2 week arrival I would appreciate it. I wish someone was there at Disneyland that could find out. Thanks so much.
