    my boys will be almost 5 when we come in May we are looking at visiting the parks for four days I know the best deal is the magic tickets but I feel like the boys won’t enjoy Epcot is there a way to get around having to visit all 4 parks and repeat MK?

    Hi ya Jennifer!

    Thank you so much for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You all must be so excited for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort, I’m excited for you! 

    The 4-Park Magic Ticket is a special offer that allows you to visit all 4 parks at a great price. Admission is only valid once to each of the following;  Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom Park. Therefore, with this ticket, you will not be able to visit any of the parks twice. 

    As a mom to a thrill seeking 5-year old myself, I understand your concern about visiting Epcot. I personally was worried he would be too distracted by trying to find attractions to ride, that he wouldn’t enjoy all the sights and smells. That wasn’t the case though, he was too busy posing for photos around the world! We designated him as our “navigator” and he lead the way as we traveled around the globe.

    The 2020 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will also be taking place at Epcot when you visit, as it was when I took my 5-year old. The Topiary Displays and Outdoor Kitchens is what my son loved the most. He asked for a picture with each Topiary Display. Thankfully, with the purchase of Memory Maker, we were able to get many of those photos taken by Disney’s PhotoPass photographers! The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival includes fun for kids of all ages, and to my son’s surprise, he really enjoyed Epcot!

    If Epcot is something your family wants to opt out of, don’t worry, you can always purchase a Standard Theme Park Ticket so that you can choose the parks you want to experience!

    See ya real soon!
