How to Spend a Rainy Day in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World

Travel to Magic Kingdom on a rainy day is still fun!

If you live in Florida, you know that in the summer time it rains almost every day. Usually it does not rain all day, but in the rainy season it does rain for about 30 minutes each afternoon. If there is a tropical storm or hurricane brewing, it could wind up raining on and off the entire day.

Rain may not close everything down, but lightning certainly could close a lot of attractions. Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Big Thunder Mountain and the Jungle Cruise are some of them. The good news is there is still plenty to do at the Magic Kingdom.

The Rides

Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid

We absolutely love The Little Mermaid! So the fact that "Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid" is open rain or shine makes us very happy. In this ride, you board a clamshell and dive under the water to become part of Ariel's world. There are gadgets, and gizmos and of course good times. Her friends are all there including: Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle. The ride is under the sea but you will not actually get wet.

Other rides that remain open include: Winnie the Pooh, Haunted Mansion, it's a small world, Peter Pan's Flight and Space Mountain.

Winnie the Pooh takes you through the Hundred-Acre Wood in an oversized Hunny Pot. Pooh's friends are featured including: Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo and of course Tigger! Peter Pan's flight reminds us of the E.T. ride at Universal Studios where you board a pirate galleon and fly over amazing sights from all over the world.

The Shows

Less than ideal weather gives you a chance to check out some shows you may not prioritize on a beautiful day. One of the shows we attended was Mickey's PhilharMagic. Once you put on your 3D opera glasses you get to see a magic-filled show on a 150 foot-wide and 180-degree screen. Donald Duck attempts to take the conductor role from Mickey and we all come along for the ride.

Other shows include Carousel of Progress and Country Bear Jamboree. Carousel of Progress is great because you travel through the 20th century and see the evolution of technology. It features an American family over 4 generations. This attraction spawned from "Progressland" from the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. We love the animatronics and the catchy "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" song.

The Country Bear Jamboree is a surprisingly adult themed show featuring country western loving singing bears. This is a 16 minute show that is once of the last attractions that Walt Disney himself helped develop. It has themes of lost love, spilling wine and other topics that fit the country western billing perfectly.

The Food

Rain is always a good reason to find some delicious food and/or tasty treats.

The Poor Unfortunate Souls Float was available when we visited the Magic Kingdom. It is a combination of cream cheese soft serve, black raspberry syrup, and Coca-Cola. We've never had cream cheese soft serve, but it was really good and tasted great along with the raspberry syrup and soda.

Our favorite food was the vegan sloppy Joe served as Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe. This sandwich is served wrapped in foil and features Beyond Meat crumbles to give the sloppy Joe look and smell! It also has slaw, mustard, and vinegar. Beyond Meat is of course plant based and vegan. We didn't know Disney had this and we really were happy to find it and enjoy this sandwich.
