We often visit Walt Disney World during the rainy season. As such, we know that Florida downpours generally pass pretty quickly. We just duck inside somewhere, wait a few minutes until the heavy rain becomes a gentle mist, and head back out. But what to do while waiting for the downpour to lighten up? Well, that depends on where you take shelter. In Epcot’s Innoventions, there are loads of activities to keep you busy. In less busy spots, like the rest & recharge “tent” in Magic Kingdom’s Storybook Circus area, plug in your phone for a recharge while you put your feet up and rest. During one particularly heavy rain, we found ourselves sheltering in Merchant of Venus, a shop in Tomorrowland. To pass the time, we played around at their photo station. Once we saw the result, we couldn’t help but purchase the pic:
Not only is this a fun picture, but it has a greater significance. When Cale was little, he adored Jango Fett. He had a Jango costume and played the “Jango mission game” (of his own creation) whenever we were at a playground (or even in our own backyard). A picture of himself with his childhood hero made for the perfect souvenir!
What do you do when it rains at Disney? Do you head back to the resort? Shelter until it lets up a little? Throw on a poncho and keep going? I’d love to hear about it!
