    What happens if it rains on our day? Is the park still Open?

    Warmest greetings from Florida, Andreea! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Even though our nickname is "the Sunshine State," we definitely get our fair share of rain in these parts. But don't worry if the rain-rain-rain comes down-down-down during your Walt Disney World vacation. You can still have buckets of fun!

    Typically, the theme parks of the Walt Disney World Resort will be open rain or shine. The parks may close in the event a hurricane is bearing down on Central Florida (which is thankfully not the case this weekend!), but otherwise, it's time to don your rain gear and just keep swimming!

    Andreea, your smartphone is a useful tool to have when rain is expected during your vacation. First, be sure to have the My Disney Experience mobile app installed on your phone so you can see the status of certain outdoor attractions that may temporarily close due to heavy rain or lightning. Plus, waiting out a shower is a great time to take advantage of Mobile Ordering in the My Disney Experience app and enjoy a snack until the weather clears.

    I also recommend checking the Orlando TV stations' websites and using one of their apps while you're here. You'll get a much more detailed forecast from local experts, and you can track the rain as it approaches so you'll know when it might be time for a break at your Resort hotel.

    Fingers crossed for clearing skies and a sunny outlook on your magical vacation, Andreea! Thanks for stopping by, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
