    Is there a particular park that is better to go to if it is a rainy day?

    Now THAT is a great question!

    I love all the parks, but on rainy days there is one that I prefer over the others. Epcot. Why?

    The Animal Kingdom has most of it's appeal in outdoor attractions (because of the animals). So naturally I want to go somewhere that I get out of the rain as much as possible.

    Magic Kingdom is similarly inclined, and Hollywood Studios has a fair number of outdoor attractions as well.

    With Epcot, however, there is a different story. The Future World side has attractions that are ALMOST all indoors (Test Track does a quick outdoor venture, at the end). So you are just getting rained on when moving from pavilion to pavilion. In the World Showcase you take more of a hit with the rain, but still not so much as at the other parks. Yes, the national pavilions of the World Showcase derive much of their charm from their "curb appeal". But each has indoor stores that are fun to experience, Kidcot stops that provide for good indoor interaction for kids, and some great movies and entertainment options as well. 

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical vacation!
