    Hi love this panel! I leave in 4 days! I am concened about the weather. Everyday it says that scattered tstorms are this typical? Worried our trip will be a complete wash out. Also how are the crowd levels? Thank you!!

    Of course no one can tell you with complete certainty what will happen with the weather on any given day, but generally in Orlando in the summer "scattered thunderstorms" means just that. The storms come and go fairly quickly and the rain is not constant. Often you'll encounter something like a downpour at the Magic Kingdom while there is no rain at all just a few miles away. With some regularity you will see rain that lasts less than an hour and then moves away with no trace at all. Also, very few of the Disney attractions will be impacted by rain. If you do encounter a shower, just partake of an indoor attraction until it passes. Actually rain can sometimes be a bit of a benefit to the hardy soul. Other guests may leave the park during a rain, making the lines for the attractions much shorter.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for sunny skies for you, but I really don't think you're facing a disaster.
