Before we get started today with some great content from Laura, I want to put the word out that I’m looking for some guest posts! Disney-themed guest posts, that is. If you’d like to share your family’s travel experience, I’d love to have you! Check out the “About & Contact” tab above for my email.
There are two free, fun, tangible things about this post. The first is that Laura is running a special right now. Whenever you request a quote and book through her (the quote is free, as are all of her services,) every child in your party will receive a set of free Mickey Mouse ears! This applies to all 2015 trips booked by August 30.
The second is another Disney watch giveaway….we had such a great response last time we decided to give everyone another shot at winning! Check out the rafflecopter at the bottom of the post to enter, but only after Laura gets real about weather in central Florida:
Often when helping a guest plan their Disney vacation, I get questions about the weather.
“I just looked at the forecast and it’s supposed to rain every day we’re there! Should we cancel?”
Of course not! But definitely be prepared for rain (whether the forecast is calling for it or not!) Central Florida sees rain pretty much every day in the summer months. Usually it’s in the form of a quick shower or thunderstorm that blows through after half an hour or so. It’s a great excuse to enjoy a bit of a break from the crazy and take in a show or other indoor attraction. Has it been awhile since you’ve seen the Hall of Presidents or watched Impressions de France in Epcot? If you’re walking nearby and it starts to rain, get comfy in the cool darkness of the theater and enjoy your break. There’s a good chance the rain will be finished by the time you leave!
And if it does happen to be more of an all-day rain than a passing shower, you can still enjoy the day. The parks will be less crowded, and honestly, most of the attractions are indoors anyway—you’ll just have to be in the rain getting from place to place. Just be prepared and bring ponchos or umbrellas. Carry a backpack or other bag so you can put them away once you’re indoors and out of the elements.
And while it can be fun to splash in the puddles and dance in the rain—this makes for great memories, by the way—just plan ahead and be prepared. You probably don’t want to head into your dinner reservation at Be Our Guest in soaked clothes and shoes. That nice, cool air conditioning you were so looking forward to will give you quite a chill if you’re dripping wet. So save the puddle-hopping until you’re headed back to your room.
Rain is just a part of any Florida vacation. Plan for it and don’t let it stop you from having the trip of a lifetime. After all, a rainy day at Disney is better than a nice day at the office, right?
Laura is an agent with Destinations to Explore and, while she specializes in Disney and Orlando travel, she can book trips all over the world, at no cost to you! She is super excited to help you plan your next adventure!
