    Is there a wristband or some kind of prepayment plan for the festival at Epcot? Im going for my birthday next week and want to be able to experience a taste of all the food that will be outside. Thanks....

    Hi there, Pamela! I’m so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We’re here to help! 

    First and foremost, happy birthday! I’m so excited you have chosen to spend your special day at the most magical place on earth. There’s just no better place to celebrate! 

    Pamela, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is one of my personal favorites. The park transforms into a wonderland of stunning landscapes that will take your breath away! My kids love to check out their favorite character topiaries and take fun pictures with them. And my favorite part, this festival is included with your park entrance! 

    Did you mention Disney food? If there’s something I love to enjoy at Epcot’s festivals is their food! There’s no other place where you can literally eat around the world and try so many different delicious and exciting dishes you just can’t find anywhere else. The Outside Kitchens offer so many wonderful options, it really is tempting to want to try them all.

    This year, you can purchase a limited-edition festival gift card that comes with a handy wristband so you can have it handy at all times. You can purchase this fun Florida Citrus inspired gift card throughout Epcot and the nearby resorts. There’s an initial $15 minimum to load it and you can add more to it as you need at Disney merchandise locations. If you end up a little pixie dust left over, you will be able to use it for pretty much anything Disney! 

    I hope you have a magical, and delicious, birthday at Epcot. Please do come back and visit us again soon!
