Disney World 3
Disney World, being that it's located in Florida, gets rained on quite a bit. If you choose to visit Disney World in the summer, the odds are that it will rain almost every afternoon. If you don't object to getting wet, which after walking around in the heat sometimes feels good, then the rainstorms shouldn't be a big deal. Most people, however, bolt for the nearest gift store as soon as the rain starts coming down.
About five minutes after the rain begins, you start to see people walking around with Disney World ponchos. These are fun ponchos with Mickey designs on them that allow you to walk around the parks in the rain and not get overly drenched. And, because they have Mickey on them, Disney World ponchos make good souvenirs as well. Of course, because they are designed to serve a dual purpose as a poncho and as a souvenir, the ponchos can get a bit pricey. If you don't want to bring home a Mickey poncho, you can pack your own ponchos.
With the rain causing a lot of people seek cover, Disney World is often the least crowded during a rainstorm! As long as there is no lightning or thunder, don't let a little rain keep you from enjoying your Disney World vacation! Of course, you don't have to wait until it's raining to get some use out of your poncho. They can be used on the various water rides at Disney World like Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids if you want to ride the ride without getting soaked.
If you don't want to buy a poncho and don't feel like shopping at the gift store for the length of the summer storm, a shower is the best time to catch a video presentation, like the ones that can be found throughout the World Showcase in Epcot. The majority of the lines at Disney World are covered as well, so you can double task and hop into the line for the attraction to both wait out the storm and ride the ride.
