Talking Ponchos? Yes!

Florida's weather is always unpredictable...or rather it's predictable in that it usually rains for 15-30 mins every day in the summer. It's a great idea to bring a poncho, shamwow, flip-flops, plastic baggies, and other items to keep your family and belongings dry!

It's definitely no fun to walk around the park soaking wet.

We first took our youngest two daughters to MK on June 22, 1995 - DD#2's 2nd Bday. We woke to rain (horror). We soon bought 4 WDW yellow ponchos and had a great day. We folded them up tight and took them back for our 8 days in 1996 and 8 more in 1998. We might have bought a new one in 2001 when we'd grown to 4 DDs. DH would sometimes leave an open one over the stroller when we parked it. After a while a snap or two might pop. Over time we had to get/replace one or two - BUT we still have several of the yellow ones and one clear one. 22 days 2003/04 (APs) and another 8 nights in 2007. I wore one to car rider duty at my school!

As much as I hate wearing them, we always pack ponchos in our back pack when we go in the summer. In my experience, if you go in the summer, you can bet your last cent that it will hammer down with rain for at least a short time every afternoon. Having the ponchos means we can cover up while the rain falls, and don't have to walk around in damp clothes for the next few hours.
