Summer rain can complicate plans at Disney.
Since Florida is known as the Sunshine State, it’s pretty safe to say that when you visit Disney World during the summer season, the sun will be shining bright above you in all its glory. In fact, it’s always recommended that you dress lightly and be sure to pack some sunscreen when you visit.
That being said, summer rain is also common in Orlando. You should always be prepared for some summer rain at Orlando theme parks. To aid you, we compiled a few quick tips on how to plan for the possibility of rain while visiting Disney.
Pay Attention to the Weather Reports to Predict Summer Rain
Even if the weather has been sunny for weeks, it’s always a good idea to check the weather report just before you embark on your Florida vacation. This will give you an idea of what to expect and will allow you some time to decide if you would prefer to postpone your vacation for a day or two, depending on the severity or possible longevity of the rain.
Don’t Change Your Plans at All
While it may seem like common sense that you would want to avoid a theme park during a summer rain, you could find yourself having a much better time if you don’t change your plans at all. That’s because some people will decide to stay home that day, which means that, generally speaking, Disney World will be less crowded. In fact, many local residents have learned to love the rainy days and will actually make plans to go once they learn that it’ll be raining. Just be sure to pack the essential items and prepare for a lot of indoor fun at the parks.
Schedule a Little Downtime During a Summer Rainstorm
Even when summer rain gets particularly heavy throughout the day, it typically doesn’t last for very long. You may want to plan a little downtime for yourself and your family. In fact, a good plan of action is to take a break by visiting an indoor event or area so that you can let the rain pass before heading out again.
Be Sure to Dress Accordingly
When you’re visiting Disney during a summer rain storm, it’s important that you dress accordingly. You should definitely still bring along your summer clothing, but if you’re planning on wearing shorts and a t-shirt, you may want to also pack pants and a light jacket. The basic goal here is to be prepared for both sunny and rainy weather. Or, you could opt for the panchos Disney World always has available.
Jump Aboard the Monorail
Summer rain may provide the perfect opportunity for you to explore Disney’s monorail system. The monorail will allow you to stay indoors and travel throughout the connected resorts. Not only will you avoid the summer rain, but you’ll also be able to dine at the Polynesian, take in some shopping at the Grand Floridian, and even check out the arcade at the contemporary. Once the summer rain has ceased, all you gotta do is hop back onto the monorail and return to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot.
Schedule a Private VIP Tour

Once you schedule your tour, a guide will assist you with figuring out your schedule, making Disney hotel reservations, and more.
