How much popcorn is sold at Disney World?

One of my favorite snacks at the park is the classic bag or bucket of Disney Popcorn.   I even have my favorite stands in each park to get this treat.   But as I was munching on my last bucket and watching the never ending line at the stand I began to wonder.    Hmmm I wonder how much popcorn is sold at Disney World.    So let me ask you…..

And the answer is….. C or D.   This number of course changes on a daily basis, but on average Disney World sells around 5.2 million buckets/bags of popcorn each year.   That would weigh over 350,000 pounds and I have a few of those pounds to prove it.

  • Sean, I love the popcorn at the Magic Kingdom! My favorite place to purchase is right in Town Square. That plus a Diet Coke is almost my favorite snack to purchase! Thanks for talking about it this week!
