    We are leaving for Disney in 2 weeks and with all the rain lately I was wondering which park is best for a rainy day. We will have our 1 year old and 4 year old daughters with us. Thanks!!!

    We have found that Epcot is the best park when it's raining all day. If you stick to Future World, you can spend time in each of the pavilions as well as riding Spaceship Earth and visiting the exhibits there.

    Innoventions East and West are also wonderful places during inclement weather. Just be prepared to have to wait a bit between exhibits since your fellow travelers will likely be indoors as well.

    The most difficult park in the rain is Animal Kingdom. Most attractions are outdoors and the walks between attractions are in the open.

    The Magic Kingdom can be done in the rain (if it's not torrential) and this is a great park to go to when it's starting to clear up a little as it'll be nearly empty. One of the best times we ever had in the Magic Kingdom was after a day of torrential rain. As soon as the rain started to lessen, we headed to the MK and walked on all the attractions. In the Magic Kingdom, you can quickly walk between attractions such as those in Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. You would just need to skip over a few outdoor attractions such as Dumbo.

    Hollywood Studios is okay if you want to try and see a few indoor shows such as Voyage of the Little Mermaid. There is a lot of walking between attractions however.

    I do hope that it is dry for your vacation. Pack some rain ponchos as they are less expensive at the Totes outlet store, for example, than at WDW. Avoid yellow rain gear as everyone stuck in rain will be purchasing yellow Mickey ponchos from the gift stores. Quite the fashion statement!
