There is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World, not even a little rain can stop your magical day. Whether you take a ride in the wet (no thundering or lightening of course) or head indoors for some shows, films or character greetings, the Orlando theme park offers plenty of entertainment for those less-than-sunny days. Here are 10 things to do when it rains at Walt Disney World:
Rainy Day Cavalcade
When the rain puts a halt to afternoon parades at Magic Kingdom, the park still offers a processional full of Disney friends in the “Rainy Day Cavalcade.” The procession brings Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and pals down the street in unique vehicles accompanied by as special musical soundtrack and parade performers in rain slickers and galoshes.
Take a Ride Through Space
Duck indoors for a space adventure on your next rainy day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom and take a ride through space on Space Mountain. You’ll board a rocket and head into the furthest reaches of the galaxy where you won’t even care about the rain falling outside.
Soar Around the World
Take a flight on Soarin’ Around the World at Epcot. The indoor attractions allow riders to experience flight as you hang glide above the marvels of the world.
Go Under the Sea
When you’re trying to not get wet The Seas with Nemo & Friends attraction at Epcot is a must during the rain. No, you won’t get wet here, but you will get up close with clown fish, sharks and more in a 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium.
Watch a Disney Film
