We've all been caught out by the odd shower or heavy rain whilst at one of Walt Disney World's Parks. What do you do when this happens, find somewhere dry to wait until it stops or do you put on your poncho and carry on :D

Oh I definitely put on the poncho and carry on. Let all the scaredy cats clear out the rides for me. :tongue:

It actually depends on how hard it is raining, and what the temperatures are like. Since EPCOT actually has few rides we sometimes have a problem there ducking into a ride, but there are plenty of other places to duck into.

This thread reminds me of one occasion when we were taking shelter at the MK during a heavy downpour.
We were under a canopy in the building across from the castle and we stood near to a bend in the walkway.
The rain had made the path very slippy and it was like watching a Buster Keaton movie as we lost count of the number of folks that we saw who came hurtling around the bend, only to end up in a heap on the floor.

Fortunately no-one came to much grief but I was in stitches seeing the spectacle. :lol:

I'm ashamed to say that would have been the same :lol:

We would have carried on! The best time to be caught up in the rain is at the water park. Quite surreal experience!

On our last trip we were already sat at the outside tables at Earl of Sandwich having a nice hot chocolate when it started pouring down - felt quite smug watching all the people charging into different doorways!
We've never been there when its a light shower though, its usually torrential rain!

Get on with it! If we had stopped every time it rained last year we would never have done anything! :lol:
We were given fast passes for BTMR and that was some experience in torrential rain, each train was cheered in and cheered out of the station it was very, very funny if a little painful!

We are usually in WDW in August so it is always hot and it rains just about every day. My wife and daughter will put on ponchos and my son and I just get wet. We almost never let the rain stop us from continuing our fun although a few years ago we were in WDW while a tropical storm hovered above for three days straight. After 3 days we jumped into our car and headed south to Sarasota for a day of sun.

Depends where we are. Once we came out of Mickey's Philharmagic to find a downpour in progress so we stood under the canopy there and laughed hysterically at people running in all directions. Another time we were in the Studios and sat under cover eating a snack when it started so we sat and laughed hysterically at people running in all directions. Another time in Epcot we were in the big shop in Japan so we came out and stood under the cover there and laughed hysterically at people running in all directions.

Hmmm...I'm detecting a pattern. :rotfl:

It seems like it, so basically, you like staying dry, laughing at people getting wet :lol: :lol:

I'm also too cool for a poncho, we just keep going. Last year we were in DHS and it poured and then turned to a slow misty drizzle. We saw Fantasmic that way and got some awesome pictures in the mist.

I always carry a coloring book and crayons. When we came out of The Land it was pouring. I grabbed the coloring book and crayons from the stroller. Although we offered to go on Living with the Land or to go get a snack, they were happier grabbing a seat on the floor and coloring. DH and I stood under the shelter and watched people scurrying about in the rain.

Depends on time of year and what kind of rain. If its hot we keep on going. No ponchos as they are too hot.

If its all day cold rain like in Jan and Feb we will sometimes wear a poncho or use an umbrella
