Disney fans are waiting hours in line to get this “Nightmare Before Christmas” popcorn bucket

It’s the spookiest time of the year! For the next three months, you can catch us in our goth robes watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, drinking cider, and daydreaming about Halloween. While this fantasy is good enough on its own, we can’t help but lust over the idea of having a Nightmare Before Christmas-themed popcorn bucket to keep us company as we watch our favorite spooky movie. No, this is not only the stuff of dreams — you can actually get your hands on an Oogie Boogie popcorn bucket from Disneylandif you’re lucky.

These souvenirs come with some major lines and wait times, but in all honesty, they seem pretty worth it.


For $15, you can get your own Oogie Boogie popcorn bucket to keep as your best friend while you parade through the Halloween season.

No, it won’t be easy, and yes, it will take hard work, but isn’t that what a hero’s journey is all about? Also, these babies glow in the dark, which means they are, in fact, totally worth it.

You can snag this bucket at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland on the West Coast, as well as at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on the East Coast. The buckets are limited to two per guest, but they do guarantee a $1 popcorn refill while you’re in the park.

Though you can find these bad boys on eBay, expect prices to skyrocket (to like four times what they’re worth). In our opinion, it’s much more fun to go to Disney and grab one of these yourself. But even if you can’t find your own Oogie Boogie, at least you can always watch The Nightmare Before Christmas with him anyway.
