Hit the parks! Everyone else will stay home walk on everything!

For us it depends on how hard it is raining and what part of your vacation it is raining. If it's your first and not raining too hard. Go to the Parks. It may be raining at your resort but not raining at whatever park. If it is in the middle of your vacation I would use that day for a rest day. I live in Florida the weather can be tricky. I have also been at Disney and it will be raining at the MK but not at HWS.

That's the best time to be at the parks. Just avoid the puddles, bring a poncho & ride whatever is operating.

We were at AK when it decided to rain. We whipped out our poncho's and enjoyed the near empty park as a lot of people decided to head out of the park. Its only water why let it ruin your day.

I agree with the parks. Disney parks are magical in the rain!

Get a poncho and stay in the parks!!!! The crowds will thin and there should be little wait lines.

Have a poncho and be ready. Stay in the parks. If it is a light rain it feels nice and won't slow you down. If you get hit with a thunderstorm and three inches of rain in twenty minutes it is a good time to eat or shop and then go to indoor attractions.

I'd much rather tromp thru the rain and have fun than sit around a hotel room....:cool1: wear a raincoat!

I've been in the parks when it down poured (once it was freezing) and we tried to tough it out but even with ponchos we were soaked from head to toe. We had to go back to the room and change so we did some resort shopping and grabbed food while waiting for it to blow over. Generally when it rains and we don't get soaked we shop, go on indoor attractions (waiting in line isn't do bad when it's pouring outside), or grab some food

WDW in the rain is the best.

The people mover at MK is fun to ride & watch the masses run for cover.

AK is awesome in the rain, all the animals became much more active, especially the tigers.

DHS doesn't have much coverage, but heading into the Walt exhibit is nice.

Epcot is just Another story, Soarin gets packed when it rains, so I would suggest heading into the WS.

Whatever you do, wear waterproof shoes! One good afternoon tromping through the parks can kill a nice pair of sandals or running shoes. Wear flip flops and splash through the puddles! Oh and be aware they might cancel parades and fireworks. We sat and waited in the rain for a good viewing spot not even thinking about the performers (how egotistical of us lol) and 5 mins before the show it was cancelled. We wish we had just gone on some rides and not bothered.

We love the rain when at Disney. Bad weather is your friend unless you have Luau tickets...
