    We'll be visiting during the Epcot Garden Festival. On the site it says many experiences require a separate purchase from the park ticket. Does this mainly mean the food available, or is there something I'm missing that I should be budgeting for?

    Hi, Laura! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s great to see you again!
    The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival happens to be my all-time favorite Epcot festival! From the beautiful topiaries, the plethora of colorful flowers and gardens, and of course the outdoor kitchens, I was really pleasantly surprised by all of the wonderful options offered by this festival! My children even enjoyed the garden playgrounds, and us parents enjoyed sitting in a shady grassed area while the kiddos burnt off some energy and made new friends! 
    Unless you plan on taking a special tour, seminar or purchase food from the outdoor kitchens, you will only need your regular Disney Theme Park ticket. Some available tours include Gardens of the World, English Tea Garden and Behind the Seeds, each is a wonderful extra that will brighten your Spring day!
    I hope this answers your question and that you and your family have a wonderful time. Bring your camera to capture pictures of all the Disney topiaries or better yet, get the whole family in the photo with the Memory Maker service.
    Happy planning and please come and visit us again soon,
