    Hello everyone! Since there is not a thread that I am aware of I am starting this one! A place to share your Disney popcorn bucket collection and Candy containers!Tell about! When you got them, why, what you like about them, do you use them for anything ect.... I like mine because...Halloween! I enjoy all things Halloween so when I realized I could collect other Disney Halloween related thing's besides pins that's where the popcorn buckets came in. My favorite is the Orange and pink pumpkins from Tokyo Disneyland, mostly because it is so cute and bright! My second is the Disney Halloween Skeleton Dance bucket because I really like the images. A third favorite is the McDonald's Witch Halloween face bucket because it reminds me of Halloween as a child.

    That is fabulous! I love how bright and colorful it is, it makes me think of the Lite Brite I had as a child, man those were fun!

    I don't really collect buckets overall. I don't eat a lot of popcorn when I go to Disney, and they're often things I don't otherwise collect. But I couldn't resist getting these two:

    I love seeing Mickey balloons in the parks, and purple is my favorite color. I missed out on the balloon buckets in the first round ("I can always get it next time I go!") but they reappeared for a very brief moment, so I grabbed one during that time. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and the doghouse bucket works perfectly as a candy bucket of sorts during Halloween time. I was able to get the popcorn on the side when I purchased the buckets, thankfully, so I didn't have to worry about cleaning out the butter and popcorn crumbs later.

    I also have a few standard popcorn buckets from El Capitan that come with the VIP ticket - a few Inside Out ones (and a larger Inside Out popcorn bucket from one of the chain movie theaters), I believe at least one Zootopia one, and I think a Finding Dory one. I also have a Wreck-It Ralph one that El Cap gave me for dressing up like Felix when I went to see Wreck-It Ralph during the Countdown to Zootopia movie series. Those are all either at home or in storage, though, so no photos at this time.

    My animal kingdom bucket is my refill bucket for popcorn.

    Mickey is to hold my Disney sticker collection.

    Cinderella doesn't have a purpose yet. But I'm sure I'll eventually think of something.

    @Skelecountry Oh, wow, those are great! I love the orange and cranberry color contrast on the first bucket, it screams Autumn. :)

    @Shelterkat That's a beautiful bucket. I'd love if Disney made a 3D shaped bucket of one of the floats from the parade.

    @Timeerkat OH, the purple Mickey is so pretty. I really wanted one of those balloon buckets, too. in blue. I had no idea they'd be gone so fast, so I missed my shot. :-/

    @jdprincess I love that all of your buckets --Cinderella is pending-- have a purpose! Mine have stuff in them --tsums, stickers, backer cards, pens-- but not on purpose. It was just the quickest place to put stuff away, LOL!

    My husband bought me the JDS Stitch bucket from eBay for Christmas last year. And Cinderella I bought because I thought the carriage would be a nice touch to go with all of my Lucifer stuff. I've never bought popcorn at the park... well, none in the past twenty years or so. Are you able to bring in old buckets and get $1 refills or does that only apply to whatever the current bucket theme is?

    The cast member told me I could bring it back. That this refillable deal has been going on for over a year. However it sounds like specific popcorn designs only apply. She said it sort of depends on the cast member.

    @ timeerkat Right on, and thank you! The zero bucket is cool because the nose lights up and also it's Zero! I really like the purple color it is so vivid and stands out because of the color's translucent but not quite see through color!!

    @ jprincess Thank you for sharing your collection, I like the santa Mickey! Also what kind of Disney stickers does your Mickey hold? Is it themed?

    @ froggerway Thank you :)! I like the colors on the pumpkins too it's so cheerful it puts me in a better mood just because of that really! Also the Stitch bucket is really neat I like how the head opens for the popcorn access! Also there is a new Cinderella bucket @ Tokyo Disney! Thank you for sharing!

    I have the Zero bucket as well, and I love it. (Only popcorn bucket I've ever gotten.)

    It's currently on my bedside table waiting for Halloween. :)

    @ SoraPandora does the Zero bucket stay out year round? It could be made into a lamp/light source for a bedside table....

    @ my2wings there is a new Cindy bucket @ tokyo disney more of the new stylized version of this particular princess. I saw that bucket too! I thought the concept was pretty neat. I hope they do Halloween theme buckets this year though @ TDL/TDS.

    Anyone who will trade pins for Halloween popcorn buckets?

    Nope! I just bring Zero out for Fall. I have a crazy amount of Nightmare Before Christmas (mostly Sally) and Disney Halloween decorations I bring out in September. Helps me appreciate them more than if they were just sitting around all the time!

    This is true! But I look @ it think "it's so cute though!" and that's how seasonal buckets get a free pass to stay out!:lol:

    I have NEVER noticed these before!!!!! They are so, so cool. I love the Zero and balloon ones the most, though the "carved" look of the smaller Tokyo containers is pretty nice. The balloons-nothing reminds me more of going to Disneyland as a child than those Mickey Mouse balloons. But I never get popcorn at the park. (Therein lies my folly, apparently!) Where in the park did you guys get these?

    I didn't realize this but there is another version of the Zero bucket that is a more translucent color and glows in the dark. Yes, a thousand times yes, the balloons are part of the charm of Disney! I never get popcorn either, I just get the buckets! I found the Tokyo Disney ones from a japanese website. I got Zero off evilbay. The one from this year (jack o' lantern Mickey) ShelterKat was super awesome and when she was @ the park picked one up for me. MerlinEmrys was also fabulous and picked up the WDW Halloween nephews bucket for me! The popcorn carts located throughout the park sometimes have different buckets.
