Food and beverage offerings require a separate purchase. 

Get your Figment Popcorn Bucket by using Mobile Order in the My Disney Experience app! Last year, this popcorn bucket caused such a ruckus that Disney is using the app this year to control demand. During the festival, you can pick up your bucket at The Odyssey, named Figment's Inspiration Station. You can submit one mobile order daily for up to two buckets.
