A Pumbaa popcorn bucket is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! The new souvenir will be available starting April 22nd, 2023, which is the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
This week marks a very special day for Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The park will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on April 22nd, 2023, with specialty merchandise available in the park, limited-edition eeats, and even a special moment planned for the Tree of Life on the day! And now we have another exciting part of the day to look forward to — a very special popcorn bucket!
Pumbaa Popcorn Bucket
While we’ve seen a Simba Popcorn Bucket available before, we’ve never seen a Pumbaa Popcorn Bucket available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. On the Disney Eats Instagram, Disney shared that the Pumbaa Popcorn bucket will be available starting tomorrow, April 22nd, at Trek Snacks and popcorn carts throughout the park. The popcorn bucket features the famous warthog from The Lion King, and we have to imagine he’s going to sell fast! If you want to pick up the new bucket, you’ll want to make sure to head over to one of the designated locations starting tomorrow.
Earth Day and 25th Anniversary Celebrations
If you are in Disney’s Animal Kingdom tomorrow to celebrate the 25th anniversary, you can check out an entirely new collection of 25th-anniversary merchandise available at select locations within the park. This includes apparel, accessories, and more! You can also purchase a limited-edition commemorative Earth Month pin at select retail locations in the park. Additionally, you can check out special anniversary PhotoPass opportunities throughout the park.
You can celebrate Disney’s Animal Kingdom for its big birthday this week, on April 22nd, 2023!
