    When it rains what do the theme parks do?

    Hi Susan!

    Oh my goodness! I'm beyond elated to see you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort today! What a super fun time to be there! I love visiting during the holidays!

    This is a fantastic question and I'm so glad you are taking note of the weather as you plan each day. If you didn't travel to Walt Disney World Resort with rain gear, the great news is you can purchase super fun Disney Parks rain ponchos in merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    Because safety is priority one throughout the Disney Parks, weather is closely monitored. During inclement weather, you might find some attractions, entertainment or Character Experiences temporarily closed. Once the weather clears and it is safe for Guests and Cast Members, you will see things open up again.

    I see you may have rain the next two days. Don't let that deter you from a magical vacation. My family and I have made amazing memories covered in rain gear as we moved from attraction to attraction. You may find there are fewer Guests in each theme park as well during the rain. We typically check the weather each day before we head to the theme parks. As we are able, we try to enjoy indoor attractions when the weather is less than favorable. At all times, our motto is "Hakuna Matata!" As I'm sure you know, it means "no worries." Rain or shine, we enjoy every magical moment together!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I wish you a vacation filled with magic and pixie-dust!
