|I'm going to Disneyland this weekend and saw that it was going to rain the whole time where there so I was just wondering what things we should definently try and get done at the park when its raining and what things we can let slip by?|

|Well if it's raining there usually is no long waits for anything. I am sure you will be able to do pretty much everything you want to.|

|Just take umbrellas and do it all. |

|With many attractions being indoors or at least partially indoors, Disneyland can actually be a great place to be on a rainy day. There are usually very small crowds and yet most rides are open.|
Certainly the dark rides, space mountain, indy, pirates, mansion, nemo, small world, etc. are all basically teh exact same experience, rain or shine.

|i can tell you one place not to go if it is a cold windy rain...and that would be the popular Grand Californian fireplace/lobby.|

|I'd bet the lines for Splash Mountain would be really short. :-P|

|If it's a heavy downpour, they may close a lot of the outdoor rides, including rides that load outdoors (Thunder Mtn, Matterhorn, Storybook Land) but I've only been there twice when that happens and they usually open them back up again after things dry out a little. |

|I have seen Alice in Wonderland, Teacups and Autopia shut down in the rain. I think Casey Jr and Storybookland might close, too. Jungle Cruise in rain is neat.|

|Disneyland is WONDERFUL in the rain. Of course, some of the outdoor attractions my be closed or inadvisable (as mentioned above). Of course, parades and fireworks are also likely to be cancelled - BUT - the indoor attractions that remain open are GREAT in the rain since the crowds are virtually non-existent; AND it's just nice to be able to take the park at a slower pace than you have to when it's crowded.|

|I love Disney in the rain, esp at night, the lights look wonderful. Good moody gloom for Mansion too... one rainy Monday, TSM 3 times, 10 min wait... did not improve my score though, humidity.|
I suggest a poncho instead of umbrella, I bought a great one at REI that covers all, breathable and not flappy in wind... caught by surprise one time, poncho not in car... used umbrella... needed to pay attention to people not paying attention walking into umbrella spokes, found I not only had to watch where I was going but watch everyone else too, maybe not a problem if you are over 5' 4"
we are going too... National weather service says one thing, Accu weather says another...
