    My husband & I will be in Florida for my work the week of Feb 5th and I'd like to organize a 1 day trip to Epcot on Fri, Feb 9th. We would need to stay somewhere the 8-10th. We are military and would like help navigate getting tickets & lodging

    Hi there Anna! Thanks for reaching out with your question, I am so happy to help you plan a wonderful day at my favorite park, EPCOT! 

    If your husband is on active duty, a retiree, or a 100% disabled veteran, he can qualify for the military rates at select Disney Resort hotels. Since this visit is just around the corner, keep in mind that rooms may have filled, but Hakuna Matata! Call a Cast Member at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations desk, and they will be able to inform you of what is available when you need it. Since you want to visit EPCOT, I suggest a resort that is close by. Some resorts to check out include Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and Disney's Boardwalk Inn. All three have gone through recent room transformations, and are less than 10 minutes from the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT. What I also love about these three resorts are the dining options found in the area and the entertainment. We loved dining at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at Beach Club for lunch, and we enjoyed breakfast at Ale & Compass at Yacht Club. If you and your husband love listening to good music and cocktails, stop by Jellyrolls over on Disney's BoardWalk, or if you love dancing to music, check out Atlantic Dance Hall, also on the BoardWalk. 

    EPCOT is full of exciting attractions and you'll be able to experience all the fun at EPCOT International Festival of the Arts during your visit. Make sure to download the My Disney Experience app to your phone, and purchase Disney Genie+ for your day at EPCOT. Log in right at 7 AM as a Disney Resort guest to hop in the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and experience world landmarks from the air on one of my favorite attractions, Soarin'. Enjoy dining at various Food Studios around the park, and for a fun activity, stop by Expression Section: A Paint by Numbers Mural, and paint a select group of numbers on the giant mural. 

    Anna, I hope all of this information helps you today! Thank you again for your question, and I hope your visit is magical!
