Magic Kingdom’s Maple Popcorn is Good Alternative to the Traditional

Walt Disney World sells a lot of popcorn on a daily basis.  During 2016, they added a refillable option to their traditional souvenir popcorn buckets, and at $1.50 per refill, it is a great option. Magic Kingdom has recently added a Maple Popcorn option that is a good alternative to traditional popcorn.

We were pleased to discover that the Maple Popcorn is available as a refillable option.  One word of note here is that the initial refillable souvenir bucket is $11.00, rather than the standard $10.00 for traditional popcorn, as pictured above.  Specialty Popcorn Buckets are not part of the refillable option.  The refills remain at $1.50, for your length of stay, thus making this a good deal overall.

The Maple Popcorn Cart is located in Frontierland, at the bridge entrance to Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain, across from Pecos Bill’s.  You can ask a Cast Member for a sample and they will give you a small paper sampling cup with a few kernels to try before you decide to purchase.  The Cast Member notified me that they cannot serve the popcorn piping hot.  The maple has to set on the popcorn kernels and cool slightly.  The popcorn was still pretty warm and absolutely delicious.

We rarely buy popcorn at Walt Disney World because we do not care for traditional popcorn.  After sampling the Maple Popcorn we did purchase the refillable bucket, keeping in mind that currently Frontierland is the only location we can have our bucket refilled with Maple Popcorn.  The Maple Popcorn can also be purchased for $5.25, in a standard cardboard popcorn box, if the refillable souvenir bucket does not work for your needs.

What do you think about Disney adding a Maple Popcorn option to their Popcorn menu?  Please leave your comments in the box below.
