The feature to disable the popup is actually built into Magento2. To disable, go to Stores > Configuration > Sales > Checkout > Shopping Cart Sidebar and change "Display Shopping Cart Sidebar" to No.

  • @themanwhoknowstheman, because once we disable this setting related value(checkout/sidebar/display) is storing in core_config_data table Jul 10, 2019 at 12:53
  • @HiteshBalpande Not entirely sure what you mean, I have seen others just hide it via css if your wanting to keep certain parts of its functionality. Jul 10, 2019 at 17:34
