    Hi! Looking for recommendations for rain and beach gear. We are sailing W. Caribbean on 9/28/19 wondering how often we'll get rained on? And a good waterproof phone case for when I go snorkeling? Thanks!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jaja!

    I am thrilled to hEAR that you will be sailing with Captain Mickey in just a few weeks!  My family has cruised this time of year a few times.  We did encounter some rain showers on our Western Caribbean cruise, but similar to when we visit Walt Disney World Resort, we found the rain did not last long and we were able to enjoy all of our planned activities without issue.

    Don't let the rain wash out your plans either!  Adding a poncho to your packing list is a great idea!  ShopDisney.com has cute Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse reusable ponchos available for purchase.  I saw these in the parks while visiting the house of mouse last week and they are very nice quality.  If not these ponchos, I would recommend any reusable poncho purchased online or at your local store that can be folded and placed in a waterproof bag for storage after the rain clears.

    I have not personally used a waterproof phone case, but my son has!  We did some research and purchased one online that fit his phone.  After a quick underwater test in the sink, we found the plastic didn't allow him to use the phone under the water, so we ended up purchasing a second.  If you are looking to use your phone to take pictures while snorkeling, search for a case that is rated well for actual use under the water and not just protection.  Then, be sure to test it under a small amount of water at your home before packing it.

    Sail back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any additional questions you have before you set sail later this month!
