Yes, the fountains! We didn't think of this the first time we took DD9 (who was 2 at the time). We went in Oct. After she got soaked in the fountains, the sun went down, the temperature dropped, and she was chilly. I ran into a store and bought a size 3T t-shirt with Minnie on it. She wore it as a dress until we got back to the hotel. She then wore it the next summer as a shirt!

We still bring a change of clothes for the kids whether we think they'll get wet or not. You never know who might spill a drink, etc.

DH finished his plate at 50's Prime Time. They were so proud they made it a Hidden Mickey!

The Fountains will spray you while they are performing if you are the side near Mouse Gears. You may also get a mist in front.

getting wet in epcot

i havnt personally been on maelstrom or gran fiesta tour as of yet,
but people tend to have said that you dont get wet on them.

the fountains if their performing may get ya if the wind is blowing lol

i tend to wear jean shorts and a tshirt im from the UK i consider it warm all year round in florida but jean shorts and a teeshirt and i tend to be good to go.

another trick, take a vest-top in your bag and if the climate gets warmer swich out to the sweat-vest in the toilets and your good to do lol

somtimes a spare tshirt in the bag is a good idea too, if you get to sweaty and warm, nip to the toilets, change ur shirt and you will feel much better in no time and cooler.

sure you will have a great time, im on the countdown, 19 days

Maelstrom has about the same potential to get you wet as does Pirates of the Caribbean... i.e., not very much. There's a brief spray of mist and maybe a small sprinle of water, and that's about it.

I think for the most part, if you get wet at Epcot, it's because you were trying to get wet. Unless it's raining. DS 7 had his rain poncho on because it had been raining. He played a good long while at the jumping fountains in front of Captain EO, trying to catch the water as it went from one spot to the next. He got quite a bit of water down the front of his poncho! LOL
