      Thankfully, our rainy day adventures have been few and far between. We still enjoy the park. No crowds or lines.

      Our favorite past-time (other than the checkers thing) is to load up on the hot chocolate and cinnamon buns and hang out on the porch on Main St. and people watch.

      One evening, just before closing, it was raining out and we were in one of the stores on Main St. It was the one with the doors always open and a large display of stuffed characters just inside the doorway. Anyway, as we were checking out the merchandise, an Asian man in his 40's came running into the store to avoid the rain, hit the slippery floor and flew into the large display of stuffed characters. I think he managed to knock all of them down onto the floor. He managed to get himself up and without saying anything, looked around at all of the people looking at him, and turned and RAN out of the store. The CM heard the commotion and saw the end result. We helped her pick up some of the toy characters before we left.

      Too funny. What was the rush???

          Yes. They're both quite fun in the rain, especially when you get a boat all to yourself!

            the rain is the best time to be at the park. im actually thinking of going to the park tomorrow to play as well. i love the rain cuz there are hardly any lines and so you are able to ride your fave rides over and over again. most of the attractions do stay open. and fantasmic will only not operate is if it is pouring down rain or severe windy. so you shouldnt have a problem about the park tomorrow. it will be a lot of fun in the rain, just be sure to dress warm and drink warm fluids.

              ...Used to love the Jungle Cruise in the rain. It adds another level of realism to it.

              You start to notice all the cover at the park during a storm. You can do a lot thats not exposed to the weather. I've been there many times in heavy rain and always managed to have fun. Enjoy and post your experiences when ya get back.

                  Thankfully? I can't get enough of the park in the rain. Sure, a few rides shut down, but it looks so beautiful, and gets so lovely and quiet.

                    They do run the shw of Fantasmic! like you said in heavy mist or light rain but no standing water can be present on the stage .. It is always usually wet on dry days with the fountians and mist screens on any given show .. it was pouring for 20 min last time and me and my friend were by BTM and we had to run to the overhang by the backstage big gates on the bakc way and were soaked .. its always fun in the rain.. anyway it was still drizzley 2 hours before the show and cleared up 1 hour before and they did both shows that night..

                    -- Now only 8.75 for a poncho .. 25 bucks for a umbrella! what a deal....

                            We were sloshing around in the rain on Feb. 11. Had a great time!! The ponchos were $7 and the small unbrellas were $10.

                            Toward the end of the evening, around 9:30 we went to Fantasyland and rode the dark rides over and over. Didn't even need to get out of the cars, the CM's just tell you to hold the bar down and they send you back around if there is little or no line waiting to load. We had the best time chatting with the CM's too.

                            Enjoy and make it a fun day. For some reason you remember rainy days at DL a little more than the average sunny day.

                              I forgot to say that we also had lunch in DCA at the Wharf that day. There was covered seating with heaters. It was a great experience eating the wonderful broccoli cheese soup and a cream puff just feet from the pouring rain but feeling warm and toasty!!

                                Disneyland in the rain is the best! New Orleans Square and Main Street are so pretty at night when the rain is falling. Lately, we have been trying to time our visits with the storms. It's always an adventure and the crowds are usually quite light.

                                Correct me if I'm wrong but, I believe that the only rides that close are the teacups, Alice, and Casey Jr. My favorite ride in the rain is the Matterhorn. It's very cool how you go back and forth between inside and outside and get these quick little bursts of very cold rain in your face. Good stuff. Of course, Splash and Jungle Cruise are very cool as well.

                                I would recommend getting a poncho beforehand at Target. They are about the same price but MUCH more durable. The Disney ones won't last too long and tend to rip.

                                  That, and if all the other members of your family are in the blue ponchos sold at the parks, they will quickly get lost in a sea of blue ponchos that all look the same from the back... :confused:

                                  But if they're wearing a different color poncho or rainsuit than everyone else(Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Black, etc.), it'll be much harder to lose them. Not that it can't be done mind you but they'll have to work at it.

                                  Myself, I have no problems with doing Disneyland in the rain, I was seriously considering going there today to hold court with The All-Knowing, All-Seeing Al :lol: and go bug Alan at the piano...

                                  But what stops me from taking off down there on a lark on days like today is the 60-mile drive each way, and dealing with induhviduals who insist on driving like Mr. Geef :devil: , still doing 75 MPH in a torrential downpour. (And usually on bald tires, too. ) Disneyland is still fun in the rain, but I don't need the headaches of getting into a wreck driving there...

                                        I was there during the rain, I mean the most rain you all got in SoCal in 50 years in Jan! But that's okay, we still had fun. Just look for characters in shelters by where they are supposed to be, Cast Members who aren't as friendly (not all, but more than I expected- heck the rain gets to us all!), and for cancelled shows without any notice (yeah, like when they cancelled Snow White and didn't tell us as we were standing under the little shelter and just chit-chatted with each other instead. tisk, tisk.)

                                        I have to agree the Matterhorn is a blast in the rain! Especially at night when there is a puddle in there. I road it a couple of times in a row in the front of the car and it wasn't that bad until *swish!* the water moved back on my feet (you don't think the incline is that steep) and *swish!* goes back down.

                                        I also road "it's a small world" three times in a row on the last night the holiday version was open on my trip. (Does that suprise anyone?) It was quite fun considering no one went that far to the back of the park in the rain.

                                        On that trip Innoventions was also very popular again.. I wonder why? There isn't anything else inside, let alone in Tomorrowland.

                                        Another attraction that will most likely close, or for sometime is Autopia. I don't believe that was mentioned.
