The first day of Disney was wet, wet, and even wetter! For those not following the weather, tropical storm Debby was making landfall on our first day at Disney. At first I was upset that tropical storm Debby was ruining our vacation, but once we got to Disney that all changed (well somewhat). While John and I were wet and uncomfortable, the kids didn’t seem to notice. Also the crowds were much smaller than if there hadn’t been any rain. I overheard one of the workers say that the rain keeps away all the locals.
Here is a picture of us in front of the castle. You can tell by the pictures that it was raining pretty hard. The funny thing is that we ended up matching in our ponchos. Those ponchos worked pretty good in keeping your clothes dry. Your hair was a different story! Not only was it raining, it was also very windy which didn’t help to keep your hood on.
Because everyone stayed away, we were able to take some pictures with the characters. Usually you would have to wait in long lines to do this. We also rode 14 rides. John and Jett rode Space Mountain and only waited about 30 minutes. Unheard of in June!
Here is us at the end of the day. We were soaked to the bone and the girls were shivering. However you can see by their smiles they were having fun!
And here is what we think of Tropical Storm Debby!
