Rain Hits Magic Kingdom But It Won’t Deter Fans from Waiting for Tonight’s Fireworks
Rain, rain, go away. We’ve got fireworks to view today!
Sadly right after we published our update on Happily Ever After crowds, the heavy opened for an official Orlando Summer downpour.
Once the rain started, we did see some people scurrying to the exits.
However, the majority of guests that game for the debut of the Happily Ever After fireworks would not have there plans thwarted by a bit of rain.
Here you can see the crowds holding firm to their places. It looks like most came prepared with umbrellas, ponchos and hopefully some dry socks!
Look at the dedication!
It also hasn’t stopped additional guests arriving for this evening’s festivities.
As you can see the crowd is a lot bigger than it was just an hour ago!
People could be seen filling the HUB with the crowd extending all the way down Main Street.
We even ran into a MickeyTravels agent!
The Main Street Shops are swamped at this time.
For many, this is a go-to spot to pop into when the rain gets a bit heavy.
However, not all guests decided to wait out the storm.
We’re hoping this weather clears up for tonight’s grand celebration.
Even if visibility isn’t fantastic Disney will typically go ahead with fireworks. The only exception is if lightning storms are in the area!
Here’s hoping Tinker Bell arrives early enough to sprinkle a bit of pixie dust over the festivities and make the weather clear.
We’ll be around all night and promise to keep you posted on how the weather is as we inch ever closer to show time which is 9pm.
Disney World is also holding a private dessert party tonight for guests and we are lucky enough to be there.
Maybe Greg and Elyssa can’t find out whether we can expect these beloved events to reopen with the fireworks.
Here are a few more shots of Main Street while the rain started to fall.
For the most part there seemed to be equal numbers of guests leaving as arriving which make work out for guests returning to the park.
Here are the crowds as we journey through the Emporium during the downpour.
Last, but not least, the image below should give you an indication of how heavy the rain was.
