Slip'n'slides, flume rides and skim boards... welcome to the future. Bring your bathing suit.

That's always happening. And has been since 1972 when they opened. Florida gets massive amounts of rain often in a short period of time which is practically impossible to drain well in some places. You see it in parking lots all the time.

I also take issue with the 'high crowd levels'  there's a high demand level as things return to normal.
But Disney is limiting access to parks at about 50 percent capacity, and blocking out Fla residence annual passes to a limited number of days. Basically, you have to be staying on property to be allowed in now....Disney is fine with that. Keeps people in the 'system' and away from the cheep motels.

So did DeathSantis steal Obama's weather machine and is turning it on The Mouse?

Around '93. We took my sister and her kids. Stayed at Fort Wilderness. Nephew got his shoes soaked in Tomorrow Land...and I thought 'well, I'll just dry them out in the oven a bit'. Well, it was a gas oven I wasn't accustomed too...but he ended up with a new pair of shoes.

Headline: Cinderella's Castle Vanishes. Then a photo of said castle through the rain.  The author's bio blurb is hilarious.

Disney should file a massive insurance claim then move to California in whatever way hurts Ron DeSantis the most.

Such a great place

I'll mow my yard tomorrow in Tomorrowland
I'll pay my bills tomorrow in Tomorrowland
I'll get off the meth tomorrow in Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland.  Tomorrowland
I finally learned to spell Tomorrowland

While this is not uncommon for Florida as it is a near tropical zone, tropical savannah actually, in the southern parts it lends itself to a large amount of precipitation during the warmer seasons. This is as it has been since it opened pretty much. Municipal drainage systems can only hold so much and since this place ip like 90% paved there is no soak in so it has to go somewhere or not as the case may be.
Drainage pipes to keep the park from flooding would have to be HUGE to move that amount of water.

Ah Tomorrowland. When me and my family are there we make sure we hit up Space Mountain first because it almost always breaks down by mid-afternoon. Last time I rode it it made my back hurt. It is due for major renovations. Can't wait for Tron to open there.

Subby, tell me you haven't been to Florida without telling me you haven't been to Florida challenge? You should see house gutters in the summer. Sometimes they look like fire hoses.

And you can set your watch by when the rains come (2:00-4:00 PM).  When I lived in Winter Park, the streets would be flooded for about an hour after any major deluge as the runoff went into the lakes. Then the rest of the night was a free steam bath as the residual evaporated.

For anyone wondering when you are in the Magic Kingdom you are actually on the second floor. They built the ground floor out of concrete and then put some dirt on top and built the park on the second floor.

If you want to see crazy drainage Disney had to build go to the canal running behind Port Orleans and runs to Disney Springs. They usually run boats on it but after heavy rains they have to stop and get off because it becomes a fast moving river but smooth as butter. You have to watch for leaves whipping down it.

The park capacity is only limited if they lack the the cast members now. Basically Disney is using it to avoid overtime offers so they the mouse can pig out on crazy revenue.

Riding the People Mover is like riding a broken promise of simple, safe, comfortable mass transportation.

It's objectively the best ride at Disney.

Use a hairdryer next time. Just shove it down in there and run it at low heat. Dry it right up.

A great deal of that is not having a fully functional  'college program' anymore with cheap fresh face labor from out of state looking to get that golden ticket line on their resume. People are still paying the ticket prices as last year (for the most part)...so I'm not sure what the 'pig out' thing you mean is. Locals don't even buy popcorn in the parks, and shop disney merch at the overflow thrifty 'outlet' store.
Tourism is down across the board---from Six Flags, to Dollywood, to Disney.
It's not really lack of staffing availability...it's lack of butts to put in seats and rooms.
Right now, most of us would just be happy to stay home, order pizza and watch a movie.

Next year...or this fall. We might go...actually it will probably be next spring, and work in a stay in Cape Canaveral to see a rocket launch. And stay at a classic "florida motel'.

The reviews say it was bug free. Which is a bit of disappointment for cheap motels in Florida. The palmetto bugs add a 'bat like' excitement to cheap Florida hotel in room entertainment...it's like a whack-a-mole game.

It's something they built a giant drainage system under you just in case it actually happens. Right now it's full of future dead homeless people.

The college program is starting up. Locals also buy popcorn because it's like the cheapest thing you can snack on in the park with a refill buckets. Disney had a large revenue increase and hotels are opening slowly and filling. The group staying away is the people that normally buy a pass and go twice a year. Only Florida residents can buy APs right now and it is weekday only.

No kidding. Was driving on I-95 from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach last year when the skies opened up. It was like the clouds took a diuretic. Couldn't see the car immediately in front of me and the traffic started slowing down. I was terrified of some meth head in a Mazda barreling into me so I pulled off at the next exit and waited. 15 minutes later and the rain was gone. The sun burst out and the puddles started steaming. Within an hour the water was off the ground and back in the atmosphere, making each breath of the humid air feel like you were being waterboarded.

Orlando Space Mountain is....eh. Don't like the linear car design (bad on backs, just like Matterhorn in Anaheim) and the lap restraint doesn't secure you as well as possible.Tend to just skip it when we're in Orlando every couple years.

You know, with Florida sinking into the ocean and all, Disney might see this as a FINE time to re-locare Disneyworld to say Georgia or somewhere else more inland.   Florida has just generously voted to assume more than $1 billion of Disney's debts, and I am sure they could recover more in an inevitable  lawsuit alleging Florida violated their first amendment rights (they totally DID BTW)
