    Do you offer a payment plan, kind of like what you do for the annual passes? Any financing options other than the annual passes. I want to treat my family to a Day At Epcot.

    Hi Crystal!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love that you want to treat your family to a day at EPCOT.  There's a great Winnie the Pooh quote which reads "Any day spent with you is my new favorite day."  Walt Disney World Resort is home to some of my very favorite days over the years and it's the family and friends I have shared those days with which have made them so magical!

    Crystal, unfortunately, payment plans are currently not available for purchasing Disney park tickets as the full amount is due at the time of purchase, however, I can share a tip I like to use to help budget for our Disney vacations.  I like to purchase Disney Gift Cards as my own form of payment plan.  You can purchase Disney Gift Cards in smaller increments as your budget allows and save them up for that ticket purchase.  In fact, you can combine the value of those gift cards (up to $1000 per card) on the Disney Gift Card website which will reduce the amount of cards you're keeping track of and managing ahead of your purchase.  In addition, you can always watch for any special offers that may become available that meet your needs in the future!  

    As you're planning your day at EPCOT, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for information about the 2024 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival which will likely be taking place during your visit.  While dates haven't been released yet, this annual event typically takes place in the fall and guests of EPCOT can enjoy delicious and unique festival offerings throughout the park.  I recommend grabbing a Festival Passport at the beginning of your day so you can decide what you want to try from the various Global Marketplaces.  Typically, I find so many items to try that I skip dining reservations and meals that day to eat and drink my way around the world instead!

    Of course, EPCOT is also filled with some amazing attractions as well.  While newer attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana have been stealing a lot of headlines lately, some of my favorite rides here are Soarin' Around the World and Frozen Ever After.   You can use the complimentary Disney Genie service to help you plan your day and maximize your time in the park!

    Crystal, I'm sending lots of pixie dust your way so that you and your family have a wonderful visit to EPCOT later this year.  If you have any other vacation planning questions, please remember that you are always welcome to be our guest here at planDisney!
