You’ve saved your money, booked your trip and headed to the most magical place on earth. You get up in the morning and get ready for a full day of adventure when you see the weather report – RAIN! Oh no! What to do?
1. Grab a poncho and keep going.
If you haven’t thought to bring one from home, it’s okay – Disney sells them everywhere! A little rain never hurt anyone, and most times it’s so hot that I’m happy for a little shower to cool off!
2. Visit the indoor attractions
There are many indoor attractions at Walt Disney World that still operate during rain. From the Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom to Star Tours at Hollywood studios – there’s always lots still operating!
3. Check your My Disney Experience
When attractions are closed – often times they will notify you and give you the option for a different attraction. You can also check the wait times for some of the nearby indoor attractions.
4. Visit a resort or shop
If you’re at the Magic Kingdom, it’s a great time to head over to the Contemporary Resort, Grand Floridian or Polynesian resort to check things out. During a light rain shower it’s the perfect time to check out some of the resorts nearby. If you feel like shopping, you know there’s a gift shop nearby!
5. Sit tight
Grab a drink, and wait it out. Florida rain showers are often quite short, even when they appear to be intense – they can pass over in minutes. While watching all of the people scramble to leave the park, you can think about all you’re going to enjoy without the crowds when the showers are over!
