    Talking Rainy Days at Disneyland

    I once was at the park, DCA actually, when it first opened and it was raining. went on Screaming coaster and and little girls were screaming/crying because the rain drops hurt when the hit thier faces. (because the coaster is so fastthe impact of the drops felt like slaps in the face) anybody have storys of disneyland in the rain good or bad? fun or sad?

    Re: RAIny Days at DIsneyLanD

    I've only had great times at Disneyland on rainy days, some of the very best times in fact. I'll avoid some attractions, but the empty park is always a pleasure. Likewise on a sunny fairly crowded day, it is really a trip to see tens of thousands of people go running for the exits the minute the first drops start to fall. Best of all are cold, foggy, rainy days when the CMs actually stand at the entrances and boarding areas almost begging you to board.

    Re: Rainy Days at Disneyland

    I love rainy days at the park! I just need to bring like WAY more clothes haha. Last time we went when it was raining it was one crazy STORM! It was so fun but, I'm glad we stayed at the DLH because we spent more time in the hotel then normal because allot of the rides had closed. We felt like we were the only people there though.

    Oh this picture was around 3-4pm so slow!



    So rainy!

    Re: Rainy Days at Disneyland

    Love rainy days! I was there yesterday and was kinda hoping it would rain a little to send some people home. But it was nice and cloudy, very cool weather. Last March it rained for 20 min my hubby, little boy and I went under cover and got some ice cream at the parlor. When the rain stopped the park was so great..probably half the guests left. We got on several rides in less than 10 min.
    I also fondly remember going to Disneyland with my cousin during Spring Break when it poured...I was in Jr High (long ago). We bought rain covers (not sure the name) and ran from ride to ride...no lines! That was the best!

    Re: Rainy Days at Disneyland

    I guess I get to find out tomorrow. I am flying out for the day to get my Birthday Fun Card. I think I'm going to run by Walmart tonight to get a poncho, and I'll throw some extra clothes in a bag to change at the airport coming home.

    I have done WDW in the rain. My hubby and I were at Magic Kingdom in a torrential downpour (inches of water on Main Street) in December. Most people with kids left. We decided to stay since we were wet already and walked on to everything. It was great.

    Rain can hurt you on screamin because of the speed but most other rides are good to ride in the rain.

    I love rainy days as well! I remember going on the Matterhorn and everytime we hit the rain area it did hurt your face something fierce.

    Re: Rainy Days at Disneyland

    We go in February, kinda slow anyway, but when it rains over-night and into the early morning the park is fine! No lines we just go-go-go, then eventually the clouds clear and it warms and the crowds start materializing around the late afternoon.

    Re: Rainy Days at Disneyland

    I remember being at WDW years back when a sudden (well, at least to us) rainstorm hit. Just as fast as guests scurried to find cover, there were CM's popping out of the woodwork with carts selling Mickey umbrellas and rain ponchos. I was amazed at how fast they reacted (and didn't miss a chance to make a few bucks!)
