You plan your trip to Disney World, most likely way far in advance, you countdown the days and finally you are at Disney! If you are anything like me, I always come in the night before my first park day so I can wake up and already be checked into my resort and ready for our first character breakfast. You get up and open your door and it's raining! Your first thought is to panic, maybe even cry, but no worries there are tons of things to do on a rainy day.
First things first, put on your poncho and keep it moving. As long as it's not thundering and lightening, most of the rides will stay open. Some people will run for cover and you can use this time to enjoy shorter lines or even get on a ride that gets you wet since you are wet anyway!
If you're not really into getting soaked, all 4 parks have indoor attractions to enjoy... especially Magic Kingdom. There is Space Mountain, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, It's a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean and the list goes on. Most of Epcot's main attractions are indoors such as Mission Space, Spaceship Earth and Soarin'. Hollywood Studios' most popular attractions, Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster and Toy Story Midway Mania are all indoors. Animal Kingdom probably has the least indoor rides, but if you get caught in the rain there you can always catch the Festival of the Lion King or Finding Nemo the Musical.
If you have planned down days and want to try and save your park tickets for better weather, go to Disney Springs or tour the resorts. You can bowl at Splitsville, catch a movie at the AMC movie theater, do some shopping or have lunch at one of the many delicious restaurants located in Disney Springs or at one of the Disney resorts.
Most importantly, enjoy your vacation and the time with your family. Memories made at Disney are once in a lifetime memories, don't let the rain (or anything else) spoil your fun!
