Disney World Weather – What to Expect

What ever the season may me, we HIGHLY recommend that when visiting Walt Disney World – Orlando, FL you should always be prepared for rain. With our experience in Florida is usually rains (regardless how the day begins) at least once a day especially during the spring and summer, and especially in the late afternoon or evenings. Rain is usually light and not too bothersome.

You can be prepared and bring a $0.99 poncho from Walmart, or you can find  a Walt Disney World poncho at most of the park gift shops, including The Emporium at The Magic Kingdom, The Mouse Gears store at Epcot Future World and The World of Disney Store in Disney Springs. The weather in Orlando, FL is unpredictable to say the least so you can never really be too prepared. Also remember that during showers, while many outdoor attractions must close for a short time, the indoor ones do not. This can be a great time to ride those attractions you’ve been waiting for while the lines thin as many guests head back to their hotel to wait out the rain!

When the rain is not an issue, don’t forget about the sun! The Florida sun can be particularly hot in the summer months, especially for many northerners. Always remember to have your sun screen to prevent a nasty sunburn from a day in the parks which could ruin the rest of your Magical Vacation, and your sun glasses to block out the bright sun.
