DISNEY is experiencing a FIGMENT popcorn bucket frenzy because fans have been lining up for seven hours $ 25 containers are now being sold on eBay for $ 200.
The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts kicked off on Friday and Disney fans were excited for the new limited-edition Figment Popcorn Buckets, which arrived hours before the park opened.
The figure-like buckets were only sold in one part of the garden.
FIGMENT is the mascot of the imagination! Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot Theme Park.
He is a small purple dragon who occasionally wears a yellow sweater and appears in several Epcot merchandise.
Epcot Educational Media for Fiction Schools has appeared in a series of short videos, as well as two Marvel Comics Disney Kingdoms brand comic book series.
Disneygoers lined up at the Pop Eats booth near the entrance of Epcot’s World Showcase on Friday, Insider reports.
The shocking footage from the blog Mickey revealed endless lines before the park opened.
In addition to the lively fan footage, Mickey, who shared the blog on Twitter, tweeted: “If you’re wondering how the FIGMENT popcorn bucket situation is going, take a look at the line (aka, before EPCOT officially opens) at the opening.”
Another video, shared by WDW News Today, looks like hundreds of people are waiting in line.
WDW News Today tweeted, “Fignment has a 6.5-7 hour wait for the line of popcorn buckets and has expanded from Pop Eats to World Showcase Promenade, Test Track, and then the EPCOT Experience.”
Disney fan Ashley Ebay, who deliberately stayed at the Polynesian Village Resort for a quick trip to the Pop Eats stand, told Insider: “Since we stayed at the Disney property, it gave us a 30-minute start.
“The line was immediately huge, but once it started moving, we waited just 45 minutes for it.”
Another fan Samantha Kristiansen told the newsman: “It’s cute, and this is the first time I’m going to the Festival of the Arts, so it’s a good memory.”
She waited a couple of hours to get a cute dragon filled with rainbow popcorn.
A maximum of two buckets per guest is allowed.
