    Me and my little sister is going to WDW on August 9~15. I checked the weather and it's going be rainning all day and some scattered thurnder storms. Have you ever went to WDW when it was thurnder storming? How was it? What kind of attractions are closed?

    Hi Saem,

    First, congratulations on the fact that your trip is days away!  How exciting!  Second, don't worry about the're going to Disney World!  In most cases, the vast majority of attractions remain open during passing rain storms, except in the event of lightning, when they may be closed for safety concerns.  (This is a tiny percentage of attractions, and they'll reopen as soon as the storm passes in most cases.)  Most Disney guests have saved and anticipated for a long time for their trips, and won't let rain put a damper on their fun.  In fact, when it starts to drizzle, you'll see the parks erupt in a sea of Mickey ponchos that are adorable (albeit not particularly fashionable!)

    If it's truly a "wash out" kind of day, I like Epcot, because most of the attractions (and lines) are indoors.  Test Track is really the only ride that tends to stop because the track can get slick, but I've even been on that in the rain.  Hollywood Studios is another good choice, as, again, many queues and rides are indoors.

    Have a wonderful trip, rain or shine!


    PS- I arrive at Disney on August 9th too, so say hi if you see me screaming on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!
