  • [Question] When it rains at Disneyland

    I am planning a trip to Disneyland on 12.12.09 and forecast says it will be raining that day. I really hope it doesn't because that it the ONLY day we can go.

    anyway, if it rains, what does the park usually do?Close rides? Close early? Issue refunds?

    Hardly any of that. Most attractions are indoor. Lightning might cause more closures, but we hardly ever get thunderstorms like that.

    Rain will keep the more frequent guests away.

        Yeah, I've been when it's been bucketing down and nothing closed. Dumbo in a heavy rainstorm is fun

        And it's a great time to ride Splash or Grizzly since you're already going to be wet.

        It definitely does keep guests away so ride lines get shorter for a lot of the rides.

        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

          It is even more magical. At least to me. :ap: Everything is shiny and glossy and the smell of rain on asphalt? *bliss*

          Just bring a poncho or an umbrella that folds up nice and small and you'll be good to go.

            But...

            Albert Hammond said it NEVER rain rains in southern California

              Besides, predicting the weather for tomorrow isn't always 100% accurate, let alone 9-10 days out. Like MissChristine said, just bring and umbrella and poncho, maybe an extra pair of shoes and some socks and stick them in a locker and enjoy the beauty of a wet park! Disneyland in the rain is still a magical place to be. And usually when it does rain, it doesn't last to long at a time.

                    If it's raining during the night Castle shows or during BIHM it will not snow...soap bubbles + water = lawsuits

                    Side note: I've seen BIHM when it's pouring and the rain pulls down all the smoke so the fireworks look crystal clear.

                      Good point - tread carefully after the "snow" if the ground is wet. SUPER slippery!

                        Personally, I like going to Disneyland a lot more when it's raining. It's less crowded and lots of fun. The rides stay open, and sometimes the only thing that you won't get to see are the parades.

                          I didnt see anybody say this:

                          DRESS WARMLY.

                          Disneyland is A LOT of fun and more pleasurable in the rain, but if you don't dress for the weather, you will be quite miserable.

                                  I love the Matterhorn when it rains...moving quickly in and out of the shelter of the mountain - it makes it feel even more alpine!

                                    As everyone has pointed out, Disneyland is great in the rain and there are no crowds.

                                    However, there is a good chance Fantasmic will not be performed for the safety of the Cast Members. My wife will never let me live down that I made her wait for Fantasmic in the rain and then they canceled it. She was sick for a week.

                                      Its Great in the rain! Problably no "magic" snow but when I went BIHM still went on and i had a great time! On a side note bring extra pairs of socks! Some lines like Inday have puddles of water that you have to walk throught when it rains.

                                        Not a big thing but, Alice in Wonderland will close down when it rain.
