    Hi, we will be in EPCOT on our Wedding Anniversary. Other than dining reservations, what can I buy or reserve at EPCOT in advance to make things extra special? For example, can I pre-buy a ticket for the Akoya Pearl store? Any ideas are welcome. Thanks!

    Hi Stephen!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with a wonderful question!  We love to help other guests sprinkle some pixie dust on their vacation plans, especially when those plans are extra special celebrations.  You've picked a perfect park to celebrate your wedding anniversary as there is so much to do in EPCOT.

    To start, I love your idea of picking a pearl from Akoya Pearls in the Japan Pavilion.  This experience does not have reserved times available - just walk in and enjoy together!  You can either choose to bring home the loose pearl or have it set into a piece of jewelry to both celebrate your anniversary and commemorate a wonderful trip.  Akoya Pearls is just one of many places where you can purchase a unique present for your anniversary.  My panelist pal, Lauren H., recently shared an answer about engraved perfume bottles at Plume et Palette in the France Pavilion.  

    Another idea I can share to celebrate your anniversary and always remember your special day in EPCOT is scheduling a Capture Your Moment: EPCOT photo session.  This is a private 20-minute session with a Disney PhotoPass photographer.  You can view and purchase photos individually or receive all of them if you have purchased Memory Maker for your trip.  It looks like you'll be visiting during the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival which will provide a picturesque background for your photos!  

    Stephen, nothing is more magical at the end of the day than watching Luminous The Symphony of Us fireworks display with the one you love.  For prime viewing, you could book a fireworks dining package at Rose & Crown Dining Room in the United Kingdom or Spice Road Table in Morocco.  If you want something even more intimate and memorable, you could look at reserving a private fireworks cruise that departs from Disney's Yacht Club Resort.  

    I hope you enjoy a wonderful wedding anniversary and find many magical ways to celebrate your day in EPCOT.  Please feel free to visit us at planDisney again if you have any other vacation planning questions!
