Twitter reacts to the EPCOT popcorn bucket that had people waiting in line for hours.
Disney popcorn buckets have long been a collectable item for fans of the theme parks. However, the release of the new limited edition Figment popcorn bucket on Friday (1/14/22) had some Disney fans waiting in lines for up to 7 hours to get theirs.
The popcorn bucket was only available at one location inside EPCOT. By far it was the longest line at Walt Disney World for any ride or attraction in a very long time. The $25 bucket, which included multi-colored popcorn, was limited to two per person. Now the collectable can be found on eBay for as much as $200.
Some Disneygoers on social media reported once the line started moving they only waited for about 45 minutes, but they had a bit of a head start since they were staying on Disney property. Disney cast members were still fulfilling purchases from the line even 30 minutes after the park had closed!
Figment is not only the mascot of the EPCOT Imagination! Pavilion, but also the annual International Festival of the Arts which started on Friday. The childlike small purple dragon has been a staple at the park since 1983 and is the star of the Journey Into Imagination ride.
