How to make large graphics object fit within a plot?

I am trying to add a disk at some location on top of an existing plot.  So I 
use Epilog to add the disk.

But it seems if the disk is larger than the plot image size, it gets chopped 
off.  I wanted the whole disk to show.

I tried increasing ImagePadding for the plot, and also ImageMargins, but 
this did not help.

Here is what I tried

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, AspectRatio -> Automatic,
  Epilog -> {Disk[{5, 0}, 2]}]

Show[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, AspectRatio -> Automatic],
  Graphics[Disk[{5, 0}, 2]]]

Show[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> 
Automatic],
  Graphics[Disk[{5, 0}, 2]]]

None of the above works. But the below WORKS:

Show[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> 
{Automatic,{-3,3}}],
  Graphics[Disk[{5, 0}, 2]]]

So, I had to explicitly make the plot y-axis large enough to accommodate the 
disk to make it 'fit'

I wanted to do this automatically. I am sure there is a way. I just thought 
of something, may be I need to look at
Inset[] may be there is something there? which I'll do that next.
