  • Rainy days are perfect for eating soup in a bread bowl at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park. My family loves the Clam Chowder and Broccoli and Cheese soups from the Pacific Wharf Cafe at Disney California Adventure Park. I love the vegetarian gumbo from Royal Street Veranda at Disneyland. Yum! Bring on the rain!

  • I once read a sign on a rainy day at Disneyland…… “Into everyone’s life a little rain must fall. Today’s your lucky day! Best day for me.

  • As someone who loves Disneyland in the rain, I’d add this:. Ride Grizzly River Run or Splash Mountain. It sounds counter-intuitive, but they’re surprisingly fun in the rain.
