Typically on the first day of an EPCOT festival, I come across myself seeking adoringly at photos on a variety of social media retailers of the new food stuff, new products, and it’s possible some distinctive issues that may have shown up as a surprise.
Nowadays, nevertheless? Right now was the first day of the Global Pageant of the Arts and all working day very long, I was seeing photos of how long the line was to buy a Figment popcorn bucket. Yes, that is suitable. A popcorn bucket – the 1 in the bottom-proper of the photo collage beneath. It arrives stuffed with rainbow popcorn for the selling price of $25.
The small purple dude is lovely, I’ll give him that. But experiences on the net claimed the hold out time in reported line was everywhere from 5 to 7 hours.
I’ll be actual straightforward, I don’t get it. Theme park tickets are not low-cost and if you’re going to invest 50 % of your day standing in a line for a plastic popcorn bucket, that just looks like an pricey way to go. Alas, even far more expensive than that is the selling price-gouging that is happening above on eBay. I’m not going to submit hyperlinks to the listings, but you can head there and do a look for and you will uncover rather a several. The most high-priced a single I noticed had a “buy it now” rate of $275.
Hilariously, there are even some listings for drawings of the bucket. I’m conversing pencil and sketchpad drawings. Definitely, men and women are just making an attempt to be amusing and get in on the motion, but there are some actual bids on these, so there you go. Artwork is art following all.
I hear folks commenting all the time about how the Disney topic parks in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai have the cutest popcorn buckets you’ve ever noticed in your lives (alongside with a ton of their other merch) and they question why we can not get individuals listed here at Walt Disney Environment. Sadly, I think we have our answer. Disney would have to have to employ the service of an whole group command group just for specific popcorn buckets if they had been a typical matter.
The unhappy part about the duration of this line today, in my feeling, is that individuals who just wished a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup served in a super lovable small can from Pop Eats! experienced to wait around in that incredibly exact same line! Yikes!
Would you wait around upwards of 5 several hours in line for a exclusive popcorn bucket? I would not. No way. Seem off in the opinions beneath. I can barely hold out to hear your views!
