The line for the popcorn bucket stretched through the park well before opening, with many fans hoping to acquire one of these adorable souvenirs.
Unfortunately, we’re noticing a lot of reselling activity on eBay. Though only a small handful of people have been able to purchase them thus far (the park opened at 10AM), we’re seeing the popcorn bucket sell for well over $100, with some topping $150:
Later in the morning, we saw that the bidding on one of the popcorn buckets went up to $270 after 55 people placed their bids!
We also noticed…this “Bad Artwork Sketch” of a Figment Popcorn Bucket, with the bid at the time up to $26. Hey, it’s the Festival of the Arts, after all. We do want to point out that this particular listing benefits charity — the listing mentions that 90% of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity (they’ll even throw in a bag of microwave popcorn for you to enjoy, because “what is sadder than a popcorn bucket without the popcorn?”).
The popcorn bucket retails for $25, and Disney had announced that there would be a purchase limit of two (2) buckets per guest. The bucket is only available at Pop Eats, and the line for the booth this morning was LONG:
We’ll continue to keep an eye on the situation over at the Pop Eats booth, as well as all of the other first-day coverage from EPCOT’s Festival of the Arts!
