5. Watch the Rainy Day Cavalcade
If the weather is bad, the regular 3:00 Festival of Fantasy parade may be cancelled. The characters and floats just don’t handle rain well. But don’t be too disappointed: you might be treated to the Rainy Day Cavalcade! This mini parade features characters riding in covered vehicles and dancers sporting raincoats and boots. There is even a special rainy day song! It’s a little bit of Disney magic that helps make the rain fun, and something most guests don’t get a chance to see. Photo credit travelwiththemagic
6. Avoid Animal Kingdom
Of all the Disney parks (excluding the water parks), Animal Kingdom is the most difficult on a rainy day. The attractions are almost entirely outdoors, and many rides and animal viewing areas will close due to lightning. If you have a choice, visit a different park on a rainy day. If you need to stick to your schedule there are some indoor attractions, including Dinosaur, It’s Tough to be a Bug, Festival of the Lion King, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, and Finding Nemo: The Musical. Try to go to those during periods of heavy rain and view the animals and do outdoor rides when things are lighter.
