A little while ago I told you about some of our favorite lesser-known spots at Disneyland. Those are the little details that I love! Another detail I make sure not to miss are the little characters that turn the popcorn in the popcorn cart.What would you call them, anyway? Popcorn crankers? Popcorn turners? I’ve always been fond of them. When I was younger I would try to figure out how the popcorn got out of their little machine and into the warming area. (I will neither confirm nor deny that I was over 18 when I figured out that those little guys weren’t actually making the popcorn.)
Each Disneyland popcorn cart has a different theme to coordinate with the land they are in, and the popcorn cranker is different in each one.
During Halloween, the undertaker is replaced by…the Oogie Boogie! He might just cook a special batch of snake and spider stew!
As far as I know, the popcorn turners are unique to Disneyland. Have you ever noticed them?
