A new light-up King Gator popcorn bucket has rolled into Universal Studios Florida to celebrate the 2024 Mardi Gras season. King Gator is a fan-favorite float that closes out the nightly parade.
King Gator Popcorn Bucket – $29.99
The popcorn bucket comes with the first fill of popcorn for free and discounted refills after.
We first found the King Gator popcorn bucket in the Universal Studios Store at CityWalk, but it’s available across the resort.
The popcorn bucket is not modeled after the float but rather the cartoony character version used on much of this year’s merchandise. He’s a green gator adorned with gold and purple beads and a matching crown.
The detachable lanyard features King Gator, the Mardi Gras logo, and beads.
A panel on the back of his head opens for access to the hollow interior.
It opens his back so you can reach inside for your popcorn (or anything you choose to store).
The battery compartment and on-off button can be found on the underside of King Gator’s tail.
The crown and beads illuminate when activated.
Catch King Gator in action nightly at the parade, or watch our full video below.
Mardi Gras runs through April 7, 2024, at Universal Studios. Looking for more information? Check out our full guide to the 2024 Universal Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval.
