Published: December 16, 2011 at 10:43 AMHeck yeah I would!
Published: December 16, 2011 at 1:28 PMI always kind of assumed that Disney prices popcorn based upon demographics. They have shopper families experience a day in the park and figure that near the last 25% of the visit the family has like three or four bucks in their wallets and they price the popcorn (and balloons) in order to get that last bit o' cash out.
Published: December 16, 2011 at 2:30 PMMore popcorn flavors would actually make me less likely to spend money on it. The only popcorn I like is the regular stuff you get at a movie theatre-I find the flavored versions disgusting.
Published: December 16, 2011 at 3:45 PMI could probably learn to add those flavors to my popcorn at home. It would definitely cost a lot less.
Published: December 16, 2011 at 3:46 PMIn my opinion, Walt Disney World has the best popcorn I have ever had. It is better than any movie theater popcorn. I look forward to it on every visit and it is always the same from any cart in any park. I would not care to try any other flavors. I have never been to Disneyland, but I assume they use the same popcorn recipe there.
Published: December 16, 2011 at 7:34 PMI was sorely disappointed when my local Dale and Thomas closed. I think that a collaboration between Dale & Thomas and Disney would make a great match. There would have to be some great creative flavors and marketing to bring attention to the Popcorn. My favorite of Dale & Thomas is Cookies and Cream. I would definitely get some on every trip if this was the direction Disney decided to go with.
Published: December 16, 2011 at 8:01 PMPopcorn is one of the healthier snacks in the parks, as well as one of the most affordable. I say bring on the flavors! I'm not interested in the sweet ones, but I'd love to try some of the savory varieties...
Published: December 16, 2011 at 10:03 PMBring on the flavors! Really a no-brainer for Disney to do so. They'd make a load of money and most guests would love the variety. I've been to Tokyo Disneyland and the flavored popcorn is great.

Published: December 17, 2011 at 1:19 PMI'd spend more money on popcorn, certainly. I'm not sure that I'd be completely keen on some of those, but chocolate and honey flavors are clear winners in my book.
Published: December 18, 2011 at 12:34 PMIf there was really money to be made they would already be selling it. As a former F&B Director for a national movie chain I can say there is very little demand for flavored popcorn in the US.
Disney already sells the black pepper popcorn at California Adventure and it doesn't sell according to the cast members at that location. Personally, the prices of popcorn at Disneyland are too much and the sizes too small and therefore, I rarely purchase it myself.
