Cut down on the likelihood that your family will have your Disney vacation rained out with these helpful tips for how to beat the rain at Walt Disney World!

There aren’t many places on this planet that are as magical as Walt Disney World. It’s hard to walk through those gates and not be instantly bit by the joy bug. That being said, there is one thing that really has the potential to dull your Disney sparkle…and that’s rain. With the kids being out of school, many families plan their summer vacations at Walt Disney World and I certainly wouldn’t discourage that.

Summer is a wonderful time to visit the parks! But what isn’t so wonderful is the rain that crashes the party nearly every day. Getting soaked by a mid-day storm does not for happy people make. Never fear! I’m going to share some Disney insider tricks to help you beat the rain at Walt Disney World. I’ve made it through plenty of summer storms and without these tips, my family would have seen many more canceled Disney World days.

With just a little preparation you can ensure that your family makes plenty of incredible memories that don’t include getting soaked in a downpour!

Three Ways to Beat the Rain at Walt Disney World

1. Pack a poncho. They do sell them at the parks, but you’ll definitely spend more if you go that route than if you brought your own. Walmart sells them for a song! And there’s always Amazon of course. I’m a big fan of their family packs!

2. Know where you can take cover. Watch the skies, or better yet, download an app, like the Weather Channel app, so you can keep an eye on the radar. Those Florida storms roll in fast. If you have some forewarning you can seek out a restaurant or a longer ride to help you escape the weather. Mark your map ahead of time with potential safe spots so you can easily find one when it’s time.

3. Head back to your room. If you’re staying on property, you can go back to your resort to ride out the rain. Most of them have a slew of fun things to do inside. Or you can even just hang out in your room and treat the kids to a room service ice cream sundae. It’s vacation after all! You you can head back to the park when the weather is clear and you’ll all be nice and dry!

*Bonus tip…Bring a change of clothes for everyone. Backpacks are your best friend. I pack clothes for all of us because even if you follow all these tips to the letter, you just might get caught with no warning. If you change out of your wet gear, you can stick around the rest of the day in comfort. And don’t forget a plastic bag to put all those wet duds in!

You deserve smooth sailing. That being said, there are things that are beyond your control, like the weather…You can’t control Mother Nature, but preparation is totally in your control! Happy travels!
