Magic Key Refillable Popcorn Buckets are Back at the Disneyland Resort for 2024

Snack fans rejoice! A new Magic Key refillable popcorn bucket is now available at the Disneyland Resort! Always a popular promotion, this special deal returned for 2024 as of January 9. It allows Magic Key holders to purchase a bucket with an exclusive design for $12.75 including tax. It includes a generous serving of regular popcorn at the time of purchase. When it’s time for another helping, unlimited refills are available for $1.75 each. These come in the form of a standard scoop of popcorn in a box, which normally sells for $5.75. That’s a savings of $4 on each refill!

So what’s the fine print? A valid Magic Key must be presented at the time of initial purchase. No discounts apply to the cost of the bucket. Both a valid Magic Key and the bucket must be presented for the discounted refills. The buckets are available from now until they sell out, or through February 27, 2024 when the deal expires. The buckets can also be refilled through February 27.

Bonus Fun Facts About Disneyland Popcorn

  • Did you know that the popcorn at the Disneyland Resort is fully vegan and gluten free? That means that everyone can enjoy a taste of buttery, salty goodness!
  • Did you know that every popcorn cart in the Disneyland Resort prepares their popcorn to a slightly different recipe? Some feature more salt, some more butter flavor, and others max out on both! I recommend that you check out the popcorn cart on small world Promenade (by the Matterhorn) if you’re a fan of both butter and salt like I am!

Are you a Magic Key holder? If so, what do you think about this deal? Will you pick up one of these buckets? Do you have any creative suggestions about ways to repurpose popcorn buckets (asking for a friend, wink wink)?

  1. Anyone know what the vegan “butter” consists of? I’m allergic to soy. Thanks for all the great posts!

    1. Hi there, I found the following answer from planDisney: “Standard popcorn offered throughout the parks does not contain dairy! Instead, it is popped using canola oil and coconut oil.” However, it is always a good idea to make sure and ask at the popcorn cart. They will know for sure. We will ask the next time I’m in the park and follow up.
