Universal Orlando Resort fans have been begging for the day a special collectible makes its way to the parks.
Walt Disney World Resort just ended a Figment Popcorn Buckets craze in which the popular collectible sold out not once, but twice. Disney World guests have reported queuing for over seven hours to score one of the collectible popcorn buckets, and now there are plenty of Figment popcorn buckets for sale on third-party sites that cost hundreds of dollars.
Long before the Figment Popcorn Bucket, Universal Orlando fans have been waiting for the day when the special Minion Popcorn Bucket will come to the resort. The collectible was a major hit at Universal Studios Japan and different bucket shapes are also available at Universal Studios Hollywood.
But, for some reason, Universal Orlando was left out of the mix. That is, until now.
The @UniversallyAdd Twitter account shared a photo of the Minion Refillable Popcorn Bucket, which costs $25.99 to purchase, then refills are $2.19.
After years of begging, Minion Refillable Popcorn Buckets have finally arrived at Universal Orlando Resort – $25.99 (refills $2.19)
