Orlando has a humid, subtropical climate. This means that no matter what time of year you visit, chances are you’ll run into some rain. It usually only lasts for short periods, but it’s not uncommon to see the streets of Disney World drenched in an afternoon thunderstorm.

Reusable ponchos are guaranteed to come in handy at some point in your trip. You can put them on to stay dry during an unexpected rain shower or at water attractions like Splash Mountain and Kali River Rapids. No matter how hot it is outside, you’ll be thankful if you don’t have to deal with soggy shoes and socks all day.
