    Rain at the DLR = no fun

    Ok so yesterdaywas our 1st day at Disneyland out of 3 days we are going. So we sat and waited for over and hour for each parade (POD and BPB) And since it was either a light sprinkle or it was a bu=it of a drizzle neither parade did a show stop, iwasnt upset or anything its truly understandable but it still sucks...

    AND... The first Fantasmic! show was cancelled dueing the Chernabog part and the 2nd show (the one i had BALCONY seats for) was just cancelled all together, that sucks too. but at least I got my money back right? Now I know I have 2 more days but the down side to that is there really wont be entertainment since we are going back Wed/Thurs. But its ok since there will be alot less people (ther where alot yesterday) So we decided to go back later on this week with less people....

    Re: Rain at the DLR = no fun

    Rain days are some of my favorite days at the DLR. Less crowds, less lines. Ya just gotta make do. If there's no Fantasmic or fireworks, find an alternate show to watch. Or do something you normally wouldn't bother doing to "fill the void" so to speak. You might be pleasantly surprised at how much fun you CAN have on a rain day.

    So get on out there, get wet, spash in the puddles and have fun!

    Cant blame the rain for getting sick thats an old wives tale. You were probably infected before you even went. Sorry, I reject you totally

    I love going in the rain. I don't watch the entertainment and I'm happiest when it cancels, but I can certainly understand it would suck for people who don't go very often....I'm sorry...enjoy the light crowds though...

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Rain at the DLR = no fun

    I rank the rainy days as some of my personal favorites! When else can you do Indy 3X in a row with no hassle, or Space Mt 4X in a row. I was there last night when it rained off and on - finally got a chance to see Monsters & also the last showing of Muppets - both were practically walk-ons!

    Re: Rain at the DLR = no fun

    I went last night specifically to see BPB and of course with the sprinkling they didn't stop which was a bummer. Plus I was by myself and in moccasins that got soaked. I ended up seeing the 6pm Aladdin and then leaving. I was miserable lol. I hate rain at the parks.

    Re: Rain at the DLR = no fun

    It was definately interesting yesterday with the rain. Luckily, it stopped long enough so we could catch a few shows of the band at Club Buzz. But we left early because we didn't want to hit the heavy rain. Well, we hit it head on at the 57 & 60 interchange. I haven't see rain fall that hard in a long time!
    Take Care,

    Brenda

    Oh you poor thing. We go every two years at Xmas and last time it rained 8 out of the 11 days we were there. I don't feel sorry for you. We paid alot of money for that trip and you have to do what you can. We got to go on the good rides (POTC, HM, Indiana Jones) without a wait. The gift shops made out good with us buying sweatshirts and rainjackets. Other days we just went to a mall and hung out. You have to make do.

    If you don't want the rain, we'll take it here in West Texas.
    As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.
