Does anyone remember last month’s chaos on the first day of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts where hundreds of guests spent most of their day standing in line to purchase a popcorn bucket? Of course you do!!
Well, those uber-popular Figment popcorn buckets are in stock for Valentine’s Day at EPCOT and there is a slightly hidden way that you need to purchase them.
In the My Disney Experience app, you may not think to go to the Order Food button if you’re looking for a special merchandise item, but that’s exactly where you need to go if you’re at EPCOT today!
That’s right, folks, in the same spot that you’d go to place your Mobile Order for a fabulous bag of caramel popcorn from Karamell-Küche, you’ll see the “EPCOT Souvenir Release” button and you can pick your 30-minute arrival window from the available time slots.
The thought of not having to wait in a line for more than half of your park day is a good thing in my book. Here’s to hoping today goes well on the special merchandise front and that maybe, just maybe we’ll be able to enjoy more of these special items here at Walt Disney World without much chaos!
