A rainy day at Walt Disney World resort is better than a sunny day anywhere else! Although it’s known as The Sunshine State, Florida is known for its random showers. If you find your Disney vacation forecast includes a rainy day, never fear! There are plenty of exciting activities and attractions to experience in rain or shine at the Most Magical Place on Earth. To help you plan your perfect rainy Disney day, we’re sharing three rainy day activities in each park!
One Magic Kingdom activity that you can only experience on a rainy day is the Rainy-Day Cavalcade. This fun Main Street U.S.A. parade features a special soundtrack and some of your favorite Disney characters riding down the street in antique vehicles!
Some of Magic Kingdom’s most iconic attractions are perfect to ride in rain or shine. Attractions like Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion feature indoor or covered queues which will keep you dry while waiting to ride!
Fantasyland is a great place to be on a rainy day in the Magic Kingdom. With so many covered or indoor attractions so close together, it’s easy to cover a lot of ground especially as crowds begin to die down in the rainy weather. Enjoy 3-D PhilharMagic or meet your favorite Disney princesses without traveling too far!
Waiting for a rain storm to pass? Make your way to the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival. Enjoy three different short films on the big screen while you sit back and relax! You’ll be reenergized once the rain passes.
The Epcot Character Spot is a great place to spend your time during gloomy weather. Meet some of your favorite Disney characters and create lasting memories thanks to Disney PhotoPass Service! Don’t forget to grab a few group shots with the whole family.
The Land pavilion is home to two iconic Epcot attractions, Soarin’ Around the World and Living with the Land. Rain or shine, guests can soar to new heights while seeing breathtaking views from all over the globe on Soarin’ Around The World. Once you’ve completed your journey, get in line for Living with the Land next door and get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the fruits and vegetables you enjoy on property.
