    what happens in the rain???

    I'm supposed to go to Disneyland on Friday Feb. 11th and the forecast calls for rain. I had a couple questions about that. How much rain is needed to close down rides/shows. Also, how much rain is needed to close down Fantasmic? Thanks.

    Mickey's Rainy Day cavalcade (a bunch of characters on the omnibus)

    Most rides stay open in the rain...

    Fantasmic! Does not operate in high winds or the rain OR in the anticipation of high winds or rain.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive.
    If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    Generally what they will do in the rain is: close all attractions whether they are inside or out, close all moats of transportation in and around the park (trains and monorails), and they will also temporarily close all eating establishments as well as restrooms. This is to prevent...wait, that's not Disneyland I was thinking of, nevermind.

    There will be very little difference while the rainy conditions are afoot.

    Good questions, I'm sure there are lots of people that aren't regulars and wonder this. I think DLfreak has covered Fantasmic! and the parades for you. And GG4JC is right there will defintely be more poncho's sold!

    Normally, the crowds are smaller when it's a rainy day forecast I'm not sure if the Mark Twain/Columbia and Tom Sawyer's Islands are closed, but I'm sure it's a possiblity.

    Just grab a poncho and go! We've been there on rainy days and had a BLAST!! Remember, if it's rainy then you don't have to worry about getting wet on Splash!! :devil: (when it's open LOL)

    I love riding Splash Mountain when it's raining.
    Dsnylndmom is right, crowds get lighter.

    We like going to the park in the rain unless it is just pouring. just bring umbrellas (ones that are really short when folded are best) and dress warm. The crowds really thin out and generally everything we want to do is operating. I especially like the park at night when it is raining - all the lights reflected off the wet pathways etc. really quite beautiful in my opinion, especially main street...
