Unless I'm seeing a satellite shot of a huge hurricane bearing down on Fla. I trust no weather forecast more that 3 days out, in fact, I like to see rain predicted a week before my trip, that's a guarantee of good weather.

A few years ago - we were staying at Pop - & we had TWO HOURS of sunshine out of the entire 8 days we were there. We used all of our ponchos, went to Goodings to buy more, and still had a GREAT time!

Rain is not the worse thing that can happen. It's ok! You will be fine!

This wouldn't happen to be the May 2009 debacle, would it? We were there for that! That's the ONLY time I've ever seen that much rain there.

This is us as well. If it's not a hurricane, then don't worry about it. It's Florida- I'd be surprised if I went there and DIDN'T experience a little rain.

You won't melt if you go out in the rain. Bring ponchos and carry on. Some of our best park days were rainy ones.

We have been here since 9/29 and there has been a shower everyday but it hasn't been terrible. Except for right now it is pouring, thunder and lightning. The rain seems to happen mostly in the evening which is our normal pool time.

Even if it does rain every day, you'll still be fine - seriously. I love WDW in the rain
I picked October because it was suppose to be one of the months with less rain ?

Thanks all, I will wait until its much closer to going to check. I'm not going to worry about it and just deal with it if it does rain The only thing that got me was they were calling for the most rain on the day we are going to MNSSHP ! That may change it has already 3 times since I have been checking. I think I will check out weather.com

You sure? I'd think you would want the forecast to be 80% rain and be WRONG!

Seriously people. Its gonna be some of the worst possible weather next week. Lots of lightening. I even spotting a hurricane bearing down on Florida (two actually - one in the gulf too). Don't bother fact-checking this. All of the weather sites are wrong. Stay home people!

I'll let you know how "horrible" the weather was when I get back!

I had every weather site (accuweather, weather channel, weather network, weather underground, etc.) bookmarked and checked everyday for the last week before we left. It was showing thunderstorms for pretty much everyday that we were going to be there (Sept 22-30, 2012). In total, we ended up getting 2 whole hours of rain - we had a thunderstorm between the hours of 5:30-6:30pm on Sept. 27 while at Magic Kingdom and a thunderstorm between the hours of 5-6 on Sept. 28 while at Hollywood Studios. That's it. Otherwise, it was hot, sunny and humid.

no sense in worrying over something you can't control
