11. Indoor endeavors at Epcot
A rainy day doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice time spent in the parks. In fact, Epcot Park, in particular, is known for a host of stellar attractions that are actually housed at indoor locations. From indoor rides ranging from Spaceship Earth to Soarin’ to other insider marvels like the Living with the Land attraction and The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion, Epcot is by far one of the best parks to be in while it’s raining. Even character meet and greet locations have primary indoor locations. And don’t forget about all the impeccable dining designations all throughout the park. Even visiting the World Showcase allows for many unique novelty shops, dining spots, and in some cases attractions to duck into when the rain moves in. So in short, don’t let the rain deter you while out and about in Epcot.
12. Magic Kingdom rain-friendly to-dos
Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park also boasts a wide range of indoor attractions, making it possible to still experience park magic in countless ways despite any watery situations that may be going on. From plundering the seas with Pirates of the Caribbean to finding grave goodness lurking within the Haunted Mansion, there are plenty of possibilities to make the wetter weather work in your favor. Some other indoor ultimate must-dos within the Magic Kingdom include “it’s a small world,” Peter Pan’s Flight, Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Space Mountain, and several others. Performance attractions are also hot on the list, especially with such classics as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, Country Bear Jamboree, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, and more. And don’t forget all those indoor character meet and greet opportunities as well, especially that most popular pursuit to Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater.
13. Rainy Day Cavalcade
Did you know that Disney even has an alternative rainy day parade lined up at Magic Kingdom Park? That’s right, Disney has taken a sticky situation (or should we say “a wet situation”?) and made it into something to celebrate with their own Rainy Day Cavalcade at the ready when needed. Because slick rain conditions can cause slipping, sliding, and all those staged parade numbers to become a bit perilous to perform, the Rainy Day Cavalcade serves as an alternative that still incorporates characters, dancers, music, and a parade precession with all the works. So don your rain gear and get going to the Magic Kingdom. Just because you may have heard that the Festival of Fantasy Parade has been cancelled it doesn’t mean there isn’t another parade making a splash!
Magic is never washed out at Walt Disney World Resort, despite what weather conditions are in the works. You can always count on Disney for lasting memories and magic whenever you come. So it doesn’t really matter whether the weather ends up being wetter than you had originally planned for, because the possibilities are always plentiful here and you are guaranteed the grandest vacation experience each and every time.
