    If we only have one day, and we want to go to Epcot and ESPN, what tickets do we need to buy (and is that even realistic/possible)? Thanks!

    Hi, Kristen! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It's our pleasure to assist you as you dream up and plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Kristen, being able to visit one of the magical theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort is a treat, even if it's just for one day! The parks are massive, so you won't be able to see it all. But that's ok! It'll just give you a reason to come back again.

    Epcot can almost be considered two parks in one. With two very distinctive and unique worlds, Future World and the World Showcase, you can definitely spend an entire day exploring it all, and still have things left to be seen! Planning to visit Epcot and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in one day is not impossible, but I wouldn't recommend it. 

    If you choose to give this a try, there is a ticket that would allow you to do this. You would simply have to select a one-day ticket then add the Park Hopper Plus option. If you have any flexibility, I would recommend extending your visit one day if you choose to purchase this ticket. By adding the Plus option, you are able to get two days in, since you can redeem your plus option on a second day of your choosing. In other words, this one-day park ticket with park hopper plus allows you to visit multiple theme parks on one day and the plus option on a separate day!

    Here's another idea! At Disney's BoardWalk, which is connected to Epcot via the International Gateway, you could enjoy a fun meal at the ESPN club. This would give you a taste of ESPN and you would be able to spend more time at the park.

    Whatever you choose, I know you will have a most magical and unforgettable day at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
