Planning is key if you are heading out to Disney World on vacation, but unfortunately there is one thing that you can not control; The weather. What do you do if it rains during your Disney World vacation? Simple; Go and have fun anyway.
1. Head over to Disney Quest
Disney Quest is pretty much an indoor theme park. Located at the West Side at Downtown Disney this giant playground is the perfect place to while away the rainy hours of the day.
You can challenge with Buzz Lightyear and his Astroblasters or battle for buccaneer gold with the Pirates of the Caribbean. Your kids will enjoy designing and then riding their own coaster, and musical types will have fun recording their own music video.
Disney Quest is open seven days a week from 11.30am until late, and if all the fun makes you hungry you can take a break in the food court.
2. Tour the Resort hotels
If you do not want to waste your park passes on a wet day then why not go on a tour of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels?
The Disney Imagineers did not stop at the theme parks, they put just as much creative effort into their hotels too. You might like to spend some time watching the animals roam the savanna over at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or just chilling out by the fire in the lobby of Disney's Wilderness Lodge.
For the ultimate in luxury take the monorail over to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. You'll be whisked back in time to Victorian Florida when you step inside the flagship resort. During the holiday season master bakers work through the night to create a majestic looking Gingerbread House which is well worth a visit.
3. Break out the ponchos and have fun in the parks
If you're happy to just be a kid again and hang out in the rain then wet days are some of the best times to be in the parks, because most people are driven away by the rain! All you need to do is grab a poncho and some suitable footwear and go and have fun, you'll enjoy yourself almost as much as if the sun were out. Bear in mind that some attractions, like Test Track, can not run while it's raining, but to be honest the rain does not usually last all that long anyway.
