The Frenzy Over Figment Popcorn Buckets Continues at EPCOT Today
The popcorn bucket retails for $25.00 and is on sale at POP Eats which is one of the food studios during Festival of the Arts which opened at EPCOT this weekend and will run until February 21, 2022.
Though souvenir popcorn buckets have always been a popular item amongst Disney collectors, I don’t think anyone expected excitement over the Figment version to reach fever pitch.
Lines quickly grew to over 5 hours long where they stayed throughout the weekend. In, addition, the Figment popcorn containers starting appearing on eBay where they were posted for hundreds of dollars.
We’re here to say that the excitement over these cuties definitely hasn’t died down. Our MickeyBlogger is on the scene at EPCOT again this morning and it’s more of the same!
Here’s a look at the line wrapping around the World Showcase.
We spoke to cast members today who advised that the line to pick up Figment today is at least 2 hours long.
I suspect that this will only increase throughout the day.
At the moment, there still seems to be ample quantities to satisfy the demand.
However, this is a story that we’ll be following closely and will let you know if they sell out.
We have to admit that these Disney collectors are a pretty dedicated lot!
Here are a few videos we took this morning:
These really give a sense of the size and scope of the interest in these cute collectibles.
For those interested in picking up a Figment bucket for yourself but NOT doling out for eBay prices, we recommend getting to EPCOT super early and sooner rather than later as we aren’t sure how long they’ll be around.
