Summer days at Walt Disney World Resort are beautifully sunny but they can also be filled with humidity and lots of rain! Here are some consejos to make your vacation ‘rain’ proof!
The first thing is to have a rain plan that includes enjoying indoor attractions and shows. These are my favorites: “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, Mickey’s PhilharMagic at Magic Kingdom Park; Soarin’, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, World Showcase Pavilions at Epcot; Star Wars Launch Bay, Star Tours, Toy Story Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the amazing shows “The Festival of the Lion King” and “Finding Nemo – The Musical” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Second, you and your familia need to pack clothing that is appropriate for all type of weather. It’s hot and humid so you need clothes that are light but also that can dry easily. You also need comfortable shoes and socks! Brings extra pairs of socks because your feet will be the first thing to get soaked during a summer downpour. Wet socks are not fun!
Also be sure to pack rain jackets or ponchos and bring umbrellas. If you forgot them, you can always buy them at the stores in the resorts and the parks.
And last but not least, my favorite thing to do, rain or shine, is to find the character greeting locations – in this case, the indoor ones! – and take photos and ask for autographs where they are allowed. Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell at Tony’s Town Square in Magic Kingdom Park, Mickey and Minnie at the Outpost at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Epcot Character Spot and BB-8 and Kylo Ren at Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are some of the best options!
