    What do you think is the worst ride to go on at DL when it's raining?

    For me, I decided tonight that it's the Matterhorn! I got on and was immediately sitting on a sopping wet seat and my feet were in about 4 inches of water. I spent the next two hours sloshing around the park in my soaking wet sneakers and my toes looked like raisins when I got back to the hotel!

    On Sunday, while riding Splash, my face was just hurting. It felt like someone had slapped me, and that was on the first drop!

    Oy, I love BTMRR, Matterhorn, and Splash during the rain!

    Astro Orbiter.

    When the rain starts coming down there's no where to go. You just keep going around and around.

    Re: What do you think is the worst ride to go on at DL when it's raining?

    I'm surprised about the fact that whenever I've gone, and it does always rain during my trips.....I never see anyone with big rubber rainboots. They don't lend themselves to walking, and they are kind of clunky. But still....

    I'll take a wet fanny, over wet soggy feet, anyday!

    We were caught one year on the CANOES and got drenched to the bone! It's not like you can turn back. It began to rain 1/2 through the ride and boy did we paddle hard/fast. Still it was a lot of fun, but thank goodness we could change back in the hotel.

    You know, it has never rained when I've been at Disneyland. I guess I'm just lucky - or, I'm really due for a downpour when I go in June.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Re: What do you think is the worst ride to go on at DL when it's raining?

    I dont know about you guys but I prefer to go to Dland when its raining. Its pretty much the only time you can go and experience the MK without big crowds. However we do plan accordingly. We dont wear rain gear or ponchos. we like getting wet but we dont wear our sunday best either.

    i can see why people wouldnt like the matterhorn, BTMRR, etc in the rain but I love it. Matterhorn is my fav. its like an all new adventure in the rain.

    There's never been a time that I've been to Disneyland when it hasn't rained! It's always rained when I've gone. 2004 was the worst. I hadn't been in 25 years. Actually, when I left off in 1978, in January 1978.....it rained, and everybody running for the exit. Back in those days, nobody really stayed at theme parks in the rain.

    I really would like to experience a New Years Eve without rain, or at least, without the threat of rain.

    I know that I've always lived by that credo!

    I say matterhorn just because the loading is out in the open. I LOVE riding Big Thunder, Jungle Cruise, Screamin' in the rain.

    Heck, I can remember riding Batman at SFMM in the front row in the POURING rain. Love it!!!

    The Matterhorn cars fill up with water because they don't have drains inside the cars.

    Re: What do you think is the worst ride to go on at DL when it's raining?

    I can tell you the best ride to do (at least in MK) is the Tomorrowland Speedway! The track floods, the cars get puddles, the visibility is limited and the line goes away! Great time!
    /\ Downpours only. If you are gonna get wet you might as well get wet.
