It’s Raining…Not Pouring! Making the Most of the Parks in the Rain!

It's Raining...Not Pouring! Making the Most of the Parks in the Rain!

Have you ever been in the parks when a massive down pour happens. Ponchos get whipped out, strollers are scooted to the sidelines, and the awnings attract humans like moths to a flame. I’ve been there and chances are if you haven’t you will be! Just when you think your fun is over (well, at least until the rain stops) I am here to tell you that you have options! Let’s take a look at a few things that are sure to turn that rain into a rainbow:

Head for cover: the obvious choice here is to head to an indoor attraction. Sometimes that is hard. I suggest taking a moment to find these spots on a map (you can get a free customized map from Disney’s official site). The Magic Kingdom offers a lot of indoor rides and shows. I have found the Main Street Train Station to be the perfect spot to take cover. Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios have a few more choices where you can do more than just wait until the rain stops.

Here are some of my other suggestions:

  • Epcot: Innoventions, Club Cool, the Seas, or the Land Pavilion
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Art of Animation
  • Animal Kingdom: Conservation Station

Come prepared: I always pack a rain jacket or a disposible poncho in my park bag. Not only does this come in handy because it is so accessible in the event of rain but, it also helps to save you money! Another part of being prepared is looking at the daily forecast. While the summer months almost always gaurentee a shower you never really know. I always watch the morning forcast or check my phone before heading out to the parks. Sometimes this determines my park choice ( for example I would go to Epcot on a rainy day since there are so many interactive indoor choices).

Brave it:If it is just raining, I say brave it! I put on my poncho with pride and head to the next ride. I’ve found that most of the rides/attractions stay open and lines are much shorter! By all means, take cover if there is lightning or thunder! Safety first! But, if it is simply raining…make the most of a damp situation!

Next time it rains, don’t let it put a damper on your park fun!
