I just wanted to add that our weather forecast here called for 50% chance of thundershowers today so the husband and his friends cancelled their weekly golf outing. Glad they did because they wouldn't have been able to see the ball with that great big yellow thing called the sun that's up in the sky all day.

Note to self - don't trust any weather forecast.

Especially not a Florida one.

The last time we were there it was a day where there was a nice, steady downpour for the entire time we were at AK. We rode Everest and Kali, and then pretty much left the park because the trees were dripping on us along with the rain and it was just not fun. But I must add that this was the fourth day of a five day trip with a good amount of rain the entire time we were touring, and we were just tired at that point of being rained on.

I went to Disney in December and on my AK day it rained, but not too long. It lasted about 45-60 minutes. AK has a few covered shows (and rides) so if its raining and you're near one, I would suggest going. I went to Flights of Wonder (covered) and actually loved it! My family and I decided that we would see it every Disney trip from then on. (That was the first time we saw it) So even if it rains, you can probably find something to do without getting wet. And you might even find a new favorite attraction!

We were there in sept in a thunder storm and they did close a lot of the rides. We did lion king show, nemo, dinosaur, and ate. Literally about everyone left the park because it was a few hour pour but when it cleared up we had the park to ourselves. Walked on Everest and a bunch of other rides with absolutely NO wait!!!!

We did Ak on a rainy day once. There was no line for Safari so they were letting people stay on the vehicles and ride as many times as they wanted. It was great. The animals seemed to be enjoying the rain, They were all out and very active.

This is getting into our rainy season down here now. Nice in the mornings along the coast. Heat builds and the storms form in the afternoon in the center parts of the state. Like clock work every day.
