    I understand the Toy Story Alien buckets are sold out. How can I find out when more will be in stock at the disney parks (by phone, email or live chat)? I want to plan our next visit when I know the buckets are in, and not just take my chances.

    Hi, Patricia!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question. Aren’t those Toy Story Alien-inspired popcorn buckets adorable? The fact that they are refillable for only $1 only sweetens the deal. I’m hoping to scoop one up myself!

    Unfortunately, there’s no way to know when or if they will be available again, or even how many of these limited edition buckets the Disneyland Resort plans to sell to Annual Passholders. The official word is that they will be sold until May 24 while supplies last, and can be refilled until June 21. As with other in-demand merchandise that pops up at the Happiest Place on Earth (the trendy rose gold Minnie Mouse ear headbands come to mind), snagging a sought-after item at the resort depends mostly on luck. However, it can help to arrive early to get in line at the popcorn carts in case the buckets happen to be in stock that day.

    Keep in mind that there are many other new items available around the parks, at the resort hotels and in the Downtown Disney District in honor of Pixar Fest. I especially enjoyed browsing the selection at Knick’s Knacks, an all-new Pixar-iffic store in Disney California Adventure Park! You’ll find lots of Pixar-inspired merchandise there, including Annual Passholder-exclusive items for sale while supplies last.

    I hope this helps, Patricia, and that your next visit to the Disneyland Resort isn’t too far away! Please visit us again with any other pixie-dusted questions you have.

    Wishing you magic,
