    Hello. My friends will be visiting Disneyworld in May. My question is, if I have a day pass for Disneyworld and JUST want to walk through EPOT to take pictures, can I do so without having to purchase a separate admission?

    Hi Fellow Photographer,

    EPCOT is a beautiful place to take pictures, especially during one of their festivals. The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival and the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts have some of the coolest backdrops for family photos and creative selfies. 

    Unfortunately, you can not walk into a Disney theme park without a valid ticket even if you are only walking through for photos. You do have a few options though that do not require you to buy a separate admission ticket if you are visiting EPCOT the same day as you are going to either Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios. Disney World has multiple different ticket options that include the ability to visit more than one park in a day. The easiest thing to do would be to upgrade your ticket to include the Park Hopper Option which will allow you to visit more than one theme park in a day. 

    You can upgrade your tickets either in the My Disney Experience app or in person at Guest Services. There will be a fee to upgrade your ticket but it will be a lot cheaper than buying a separate admission ticket. You also have the option to call the Existing Tickets help center to speak with a cast member about upgrading before you arrive at Disney World.

    Happy Planning
