We had the Fantasmic dining package booked last night.

It started raining quite hard whilst we were in Hollywood Brown Derby (from 6.15pm). It was still raining at 8.30pm so we left as couldn't see it possibly taking place - bit annoying with the timing as it's the first time it's rained since we've been here (9 days).

It rained a fair bit last night I'd probably say 2 hours. But it didn't really bother us like it does in the up as it was still hot and the rain was refreshing.

We arrived last night and it rained pretty solid all night but still very hot, weather is saying that there is 80% to 100% chance of rain all day and we were orginally planning water park today 🙀

Awake early so gonna chill in room and head to pool and see how the weather is looking xxxxx

We arrived on the 11th. It's been beautifully hot and sunny. Clouded over at about 4:30pm yesterday and started raining at about 6:30-7:00. Ponchos were bought and we just got on with it. we've woken to some cloud this morning but we'll see if the sun burns them off.

Crowd wise we have been to all parks except Magic Kingdom so far and crowd levels have been good. Universal/IOA - we went in for opening as it was our first day so awake early anyway, most queues no more than 20 mins for until we left at 4pm. exceptions were the HP ones later in the day and the Marvel rides being about 45 mins. the Express passes don't work for HP rides and just use the app to keep an eye on the queue times for specific rides to find a length that you're happy with.

Disney - hopefully you'll have sorted your FPs for the big crowd pullers. Seven Dwarfs, Toy Story Mania etc have always had queues of over an hour when we've looked, but again use the app to keep an eye on it. Parade times are good for dropping queue times if you don't have a FP.

Arrived on the 4th May, was raining and had been most of the day. Then until yesterday afternoon, the weather had been great Yesterday was more hazy sunshine in the morning and then in the afternoon the wind picked up and the clouds came in. We were on I-Drive about 4.30 and there was a spot or two of drizzle in the air but we got back to the hotel by 6 and it was dry but shortly afterwards it started to rain.

This morning is overcast but the temperature is still close to 80F. Forecast is for rain this afternoon with a chance of thunderstorms.

Parks were fine in first week (we were at Disney) but towards the end of last week, crowd levels really picked up as there were lots of students here. We're off to IoA and US today for the last time so hoping it has quietened back down

Have a great time!

Kev

Thankyou, very helpful, yes we are staying onsite so will have our fast passes at 60days , it's nice to know the other parks are manageable, we are usually early doors people so will stick to that strategy.
