EPCOT International Festival of the Arts Starts Today and Figment Popcorn Bucket Madness


Today is the day. The EPCOT International Festival of the Arts kicks off today at EPCOT in Walt Disney World. The festival will run from today, January 14 through February 13, 2022.

There is a lot going on, but the Figment Popcorn Bucket madness is taking center stage! The Popcorn bucket is at PopEats.

5 HOUR WAIT! (UPDATE Now 7 HOUR WAIT as of 12:30)

Update- Now estimated 6.5 hour wait!

Got to get them to flip on eBay!!!

To be fair, we don’t know what’s under the popcorn buckets. It could be other merchandise purchased earlier, but still.

Well, two per PERSON

And so it begins

Newest Ebay pricing (as of 10:45 AM!) What the HECK!

A moment of kindness in the midst of the insanity!


The Good news is that if you just wanted to ride or do other things everyone is in line for a popcorn bucket so you can! 

The crowds were already fierce ahead of opening and now let’s take a look at what is being posted about the festival (aside from Figment Popcorn Bucket):

I’m going to keep adding to this as the day goes!  The Figment popcorn bucket situation alone is worth updates and may get it’s own article as the day goes on.
