Epcot in the Rain

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

We decided to brave it and were able to get a few things in between showers but came back to the rental around 4pm as they ride we had a "fast pass" for shut down due to rain. I have to admit that I really don't like the long lines, some of which are an hour and a half. And you are only allowed to get these things called "fast passes" which let you go to the head of the line every 2 hours but then you have to wait a long time before you can use the passes. I basically think it is very much a rip off for what you all ready pay to get into the park. You seem to constantly be running around trying to coordinate these fast passes. My advise for anyone considering coming to Disney World is to come at a really off time. My DH and I were doing the math and for the amount of time we get to spend on a ride and the cost of the entrance fee....we are spending about $10 per minute of fun per $60 per minute. We did this math exercise as we were standing in yet another line. It was just funny to figure it out. So a bit disappointed as you read about all the new rides and things that you want to go on but in reality you can on get on about 3 rides a day with all the waiting. So for any of you out there that are thinking Disney World do it at a very off time if there is one.
Sean, the grandson is still coughing like crazy. Poor baby....but he doesn't act too sick so that is good.
It is a really rainy day so not sure what we will get into today. We still have two day tickets for universal and one day of Sea World yet to do. We are fortunate that we could afford the VIP tickets for both of those so hopefully the lines won't be as long.

    Great pictures. I was lucky to have gone to
Epcot in February last year and my friend,
who lives there knew the layout and guided
me around without really having to line up
and it was of course winter. I just don't like
that you have to pay for the parking. Still,
you have to expect that I suppose. I love your
maths too. The kids must've enjoyed them-
selves regardless, so that is good.
I hope there won't be lines at the next 2 parks.

    If you don't like Florida weather, wait an hour and it will change. That is usual, but now is rainy season so it is more frequent. Thanks for sharing.

  You look wonderful!! Sounds like highway robbery to me (Disney world) though I bet a lot of fun, when you finally get on the rides.

    You are making the best of it with sick kids, the rain and long lines. This would not be DH's choice of vacation. He stood in lines long enough in the army so he's not about to do it now. Have a great day!

    I hope the rain will stop for you but it looks like you weathered it well. Sorry about the lines, I have no patience for those. That's a lot of money to spend for standing around. I'm sure you're enjoying the grand kids though.

    Seems like rain is a given in Florida. Both times we went, we ended up buying the ponchos so we could continue having fun without getting drenched. And yes, we did go in the off-season! I'm with you - not a big fan of the lines!
