    Rain Rain Go Away

    What gets cancelled closed if the resort gets alot of rain?

    I ask because it looks like it might rain on fri/sat when I'm there this weekend.

    Thanks.

    Re: Rain Rain Go Away

    Off the top of my head, Teacups and Alice go down, as well as possibly Pooh. Parade most likely won't happen, though I've seen them do it on big holidays (like this past New Year's) due to guest demand, though it was the most stripped-down and boring parade I'd ever seen. Fantasmic also probably won't happen, and fireworks are anyone's guess, it depends more on the wind than the rain.

    What you really need to watch out for is lightning. Some rides close down if there's lightning reported within a radius of a few miles, but if it gets too close, every ride that isn't completely contained in a show building (not counting the queue) shuts down, which turns out to be most rides in the park.

    No idea about DCA as far as inclement weather goes.

    Who cares? If it rains the morning the park will be empty all day. I am going to be there and I hope for some rain in the morning.

    I know that they would cancel the fireworks and fantasmic in the rain. I am not sure about the parade.

    Not necessarily true, Ive been there a couple times, and it was still fairly busy.

    Re: Rain Rain Go Away

    I was in DCA during a torrent downpour. My son and I just sat under the queue of Disney's Playhouse for about an hour just watching the rain come down...then I said "ah what the he11!" and we put on our slickers and plastic Mickey ponchos and went puddle jumping.

    One of the best times I ever had at the park.

    I think Disneyland has a whole different feel when it rains. I love it!

    I vaguely remember them doing "Mickey's Rainy Day Cavalcade" instead of the parade last time I was at the park in the middle of a very rainy afternoon.

    Sorry. Don't know if I sounded rude or not. When I read it again it kind of sounded that way. I didn't intend to sound rude.

    I love it when it rains. Big Thunder is so much fun in the rain. I can't wait to get down there.

    That rainy day cavalcade sounds cool too. I would like to see that.

    Yep, that's what they do when they cancel a parade.

    Mickey and friends ride the parade route in the double-decker bus (or whatever other transportation that might be handy).

    They do slow down and wave, but that's about it.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Rain Rain Go Away

    Christmas 2003 on our honeymoon, it rained for 3 days solid and pretty much everything was open and running. Alice and Teacups were down, but everything else stayed open. Splash Mt in the rain is a lot of fun.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    if it light rain most of the ride will be open,

    Now if a hard rain all outdoor ride will stop and indoor will be open
