Watching the 10 day forecast for my Wed-Mon trip really got my hopes up! Forecast went from 70s and no rain to 60s and rain most of the trip.

I watched the NBC video weather broadcast and it doesn't seem too bad...the meteorologist said it would be light off and on showers and not downpours. We can handle that.

Can't wait to go to Disneyland! I plan on purchasing some cute baby outfits (definitely the 2013 onesie) and posting a picture of them when we return to "announce" my pregnancy on Facebook.

We're leaving soon & I'm pretty bummed about the cold rainy weather this weekend. I guess that it will at least keep the crowds down!

Woohoo.! We are currently at the DL hotel and were able to upgrade to ETicket level! So happy about that! Beautiful large room with a great pool view.
The CM who checked us in was so nice! She even came up to the room & dropped off two signed pictures of the princesses, Tinkerbell &Ariel for our girls. So sweet & totally unexpected. My 3 yr old was beside herself.

Delightful start to our trip.

How's the weather? I'm bummed at the forecast - especially with the beautiful weather there last week. Oh well a rainy day at Disney is still better than a sunny day at work!!

You can check the list. It is the first entry in this thread. Hope you have a blast!

It's yucky . Pouring rain, dark gray skies & cold. However, I know this is very unDisney fan of me, but the one good thing about dark sky & black out hotel curtains is that it's 9;00am & my 3 yr old is still sleeping! She needed it after a long day yesterday.

A well rested child = a much more enjoyable day in the parks.

Glad you didn't let the rain spoil your trip! I think my favorite trip to DL was the one with a few rainy days because of the low crowds. Can't wait to be there myself on Monday!

Rain stopped after a few hours but still crowds were really low. Walk on SM, CS and RSR single was only a 4 min wait. We got RSR FP at 11:30 also.

So amazing today. 22 rides and only used a FP (besides RSR) on Soarin. It helped move us up one showing.

WOC not very crowded either.

Great day!

That's great you got so much in! That was the crowd level I was hoping for. I live in Vancouver Washington just like you so I can definitely handle the rain - I was just hoping to get away from it for a few days! My weather app now has Tuesday showing as Sunny - so there is some hope.

The early morning rain was great crowd control. It didn't rain hard just enough to keep people away. We did so much at DL in such a short time. The sun came out in the afternoon and we sat on a bench had ice cream and people watched. It's been so warm and wonderful.
