    Hi we are going to DL 1/7-1/10. We are taking my 2yr old & 3month old daughters . I saw that rain is expected during our whole trip to Disneyland. What's your advice on how to keep my lil girls warm, cozy but especially dry?

    Greetings Jeannette! Thank you for taking the time to stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    Having rain in the forecast during your family vacation may cause you to worry, but don't let it scare you away! Shorter lines and smaller crowds are some of my family's favorite reasons we welcome a little rain during our Disneyland Resort trip!

    There are many ways to stay warm and cozy when skies are gray and rain is on its way. When our kids were babies, I preferred having them in a baby carrier versus the stroller to keep them bundled up. I would recommend rain jackets or breathable ponchos. It is also a good idea to pack a folding umbrella as well. Shoe choices are also important as there is a lot of walking at the park. To keep your feet dry, choose water-resistant shoes (or spray some water repellent).

    As for attractions, some of the outdoor rides may be closed temporarily when the rain is heavy. Otherwise, there are many rides that are indoors, especially in Fantasyland. Peter Pan's Flight, Snow White's Scary Adventures, and Pinocchio's Daring Journey are some of my family's favorites; their indoor queues will also shelter you from the rain.

    There are also plenty of shops and restaurants along Main Street that can shelter you from the rain. My personal favorite is picking up warm Starbucks drinks at the Market House, then sitting back and relaxing. 

    If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to swing by the Panel. Have a magical day!

I am a wife and mother to 2 children, a 14 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have always enjoyed going to Disneyland Resort as a child and now that I am a mother, I love watching my children experience Disneyland Resort through their eyes. It is a true delight seeing my daughter wear a ball gown walking side by side with Cinderella or my son jumping gleefully after he defeated Darth Maul in a light saber duel! Learn More About Kiki
