You’re Going to Want to Rope Drop This Booth at Festival of the Arts in EPCOT

Who’s ready for the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts? If you’re anything like us, you might be preparing for the first festival of 2022 by making space on your wall for some new art or saving some money for all those delicious new foods you can’t wait to try!

While you’re in preparation mode, you might want to consider a plan of attack for when it comes time to visit EPCOT. That’s right, it even takes a little planning just to visit the Festival of the Arts! There’s one festival food booth that you might want to visit first. Here’s why!

What’s the Big Deal?

This tiny little food booth might not look very special, but we have a feeling this booth is going to see some LONG lines and BIG crowds!But why?” you may ask. Well, the Pop Eats! booth is selling more than just food this year.

Earlier this month, Disney Parks posted a sneak peek of this Figment Popcorn Bucket. When it comes to popular Disney characters, Figment is usually at the top of some people’s list, not to mention the fact that many people make it their mission to collect Disney popcorn buckets.

We must admit, this new Figment popcorn bucket is pretty cute; how has Disney not thought of this sooner?! Disney also revealed that the popcorn bucket will come with rainbow popcorn, as pictured below.


Between the Pop Eats! classics, like the Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese, and this new festival-exclusive merchandise, it’s safe to assume that LOTS of people will be waiting in line at Pop Eats!

What Should I Do?

Now that we’ve covered the why, let’s talk about the how. If you’re interested in Disney’s new popcorn bucket, or you just don’t want to wait in line all day for an Almond Frangipane Cake, we recommend rope-dropping the Pop Eats! booth. 


Basically, this means that the easiest way to avoid long lines at Pop Eats! is to be among the first to get there. Before your visit to EPCOT, check the park hours for the day and get there EARLY!

Then, when the park opens, head straight to Pop Eats! (located on World Showcase Plaza). Resist the urge to hop on Test Track first, walk right past that Starbucks, and get in line for Pop Eats! 

Lines can get long FAST!

Although waking up early isn’t ideal, you will likely be rewarded for your efforts when you see how long the line gets later in the day. When it comes to Disney’s supply issues and people’s excitement for new merchandise, that Figment popcorn bucket could sell out very quickly!  

Remember the great Starbucks debacle of 2021?

If you plan to rope-drop the Pop Eats! booth this year, we wish you luck! In the meantime, stay tuned for all the latest Disney news and park updates!
