    New Alien Popcorn Buckets with huge lines

    Today they introduced new Annual Pass refillable Alien Popcorn buckets. Lines were very long, with wait times of 45-60 minutes. $20 each.

    Classic example of why our existence is doomed.

    Shame on the people who waited 2 hours and paid $20 for a 25-cent piece of plastic that will go on the shelf and lose its appeal in a few months; shame on the people who hawk it on Ebay for 4x the price and those who actually buy it; and shame on the AP holders (aka locals) who clog our parks like the city's shopping mall to get them. Are you complaining about crowds, because this just gives Disney more incentive to herd you like cattle and get you paying inflated prices for crappy services. Stop feeding the lion!

    Maybe now we'll go stand in line for 2 hours for the opportunity to serve at the local food shelter...
    Local APs...the heart of the problem at the resort.

    Every time they release these buckets my thought is, "that looks cool, hmmm, where would I put this after I'm done eating the popcorn, meh I'll pass" I like popcorn but I don't need to eat mountains of it and my house is already full of various collections. At my age I am running out of space. ( George Carlin has an excellent bit on this situation )

    What a joke. I'm not sure why these become a craze but more power to Disney for realizing how to create "demand" for this but short supplying them. I have the AT-AT one which was very cool!

    At least it kept people out of line for actual attractions.

    Or waiting around for Friday night . . . .
    Everyone is just waiting”—or so Dr. Seuss, author of many children’s books, says
