Welcome to another addition of Walt Disney World Top Tip Tuesday. Florida is known for its sunny hot climate, but what some people fail to realise is that with all that heat and humidity comes some pretty terrific afternoon thunderstorms!! If you are travelling to Florida over the summer months, you will most likely encounter a rain storm of some sort (possibly several – sometimes every day), which is why today’s top tip is to Pack a Poncho!
Don’t get caught out – buy your poncho’s before you leave to save yourself a fortune (the disney poncho’s may look nice, but they aint cheap!) For our last trip, we purchased a pack of several multi-coloured ponchos from amazon before we left for a fraction of the price of what you would pay in the parks. They were perfect for wearing a few times and then throwing away. They also come in very handy in the sunshine when you don’t want to get soaked on Kali River Rapids!
If bin bag style fashion isn’t your thing, a light weight rain coat that you can fold up small and pop into your bag would work just as well, but we would definitely recommend taking something so that your disney fun isn’t ruined when the afternoon thunderstorms come rolling in!
