As a lot of you know, we have been having an unusually wet fall and winter here in southern California. (In fact, it is raining AGAIN as I write this.) So that means lots of rainy days at Disneyland (it even rained on Christmas night!!!).
The bad thing about rainy days is that some outdoor attractions are closed, like the Tea Cups and Alice in Wonderland, and unfortunately the parades and Fantasmic! (and even the fireworks) are usually canceled for safety reasons.
But the good thing about rainy days is that they can be terrific days to be at Disneyland because the rain keeps a lot of the locals away (it's No Fun driving on the freeways, and besides, we might melt if we get wet!), so the lines are usually quite short.
For those of you who have been to Disneyland or Disney California Adventure on a rainy day, what are your favorite tips on how to beat the rain, or your favorite things to do on a rainy day?
My #1 piece of advice: keep your feet dry - or as dry as you can. I can deal with the rest of me being wet, but if my feet are soaked I'm miserable. So bring an extra pair of socks if it's going to be a rainy day.
My #2 piece of advice: Umbrellas work better than ponchos. Or at least they do for me. I find them much easier to handle and use than ponchos.
That's my $0.02 - what's yours?
