Hi there,

Husband and I are thinking of a fun little get away vacation down to Disney World / Universal / Sea World next week, but after we checked 10 day weather forecast at weather.com, we were discouraged by scattered T-storms ALL WEEK LONG!

How bad are those scattered T-storms, really? How often do they hit a day? Since you will be outdoors most of times (unless you are on/in one of those attractions), it won't be such a good idea to go down there next week with that kind of weather?

We only have one week off from work, which is next week, so we were really hoping to make it down there next week, but now we are not sure...

Any advice?

Been there lots of times during t-storms. Buy yourself a cheap $1 poncho and cover up. They usually blow over pretty quick and cut the crowds down. You can buy the same poncho with a Mickey logo for $8 LOL

I wouldn't go by those forecasts too much... it changes around here daily unless a big front is coming through. You will see that same forecast everyday, all summer long. It ususally starts in June though, you'll probably be fine next week.

FYI: it rains EVERYDAY in Florida during the summer months. It is usually a brief shower between 10am -11am and then another shower between 3pm- 4pm. So when you see rain in the horizon in Fla, don't give up yet! It usually stops.

Now, we have an unusual circumstance right now; we have a tropical storm (Andrea) and it is 3 weeks earlier than the start of Hurricane Season. So we are getting some wild weather... some weird rainshowers and haphazard wind.

When it thunders, the rides shut off for fear of lawsuits. So yes, your Disney day will be cut short and they do NOT give "Rainchecks" or vouchers at any parks if it rains. It is up to YOU to check the weather before entering the parks.

To be 100% honest with all the smoke and smog we have in the air right now, you should be more concerned about the road to Disney being closed because of the smoke than some rain. When we get rain in fla these days, people do happy dances!! These people are desperate for rain!!
