Don’t worry too much. The tropical forecasts usually do show rain every day because a thunderstorm somewhere in the area usually rolls in and then rolls right on out. We went to Jamaica and it rained maybe 3 or 4 times out of our 6 days there and the storms were really fast. They didn’t ruin any plans at all. We’d just hole up in our room for 20-30 minutes and let the storm pass.

Don’t stress! It will be amazing no matter what the weather is and seriously.. in the summer – rain typically means a thunderstorm and those pass so quickly.

Agreed every time ive gone on a tropical vacation the entire forecast has been thunderstorms! In fact when I went to the bahamas I got the same forecast and I think we got one freak rainstorm, which are never a big deal cause they’re warm! You’ll have a great time, don’t worry!

You can’t change the weather so it is pointless to stress about. Rainy afternoon = snuggles in bed!

Also hot and rainy is very different to cold and rainy- swimming in a pool whilst it is raining feels amazing! Also on a cruise there are plenty of indoor activities to keep you amused plus undercover balconies so you can still watch the views and the amazing lighning storms!

One of the best days I have ever had was in Thailand with my DH. We left the hotel on a rented moped and headed for a national park/forest/caves. It was a beautiful day. Once we got back to the bike at the national park (after hiring a local fishing boat and diving off it) we noticed the sky closing in. it was over an hour back to the hotel and we had to return the workers bike (hire them off the staff whilst they do their shifts!) by 4pm so off we went thinking we will make it. Not 10 mins down the road in the middle of rice paddies and fishing farms (so no shelter) it started bucketing down. By the time we got to the main road/highway we were drenched. locals at bus stops were pointing and laughing and locals in cars/trucks were slowing down to take photos and laugh. I don’t think i have ever laughed so much in my life. By the time we got back to the hotel we were dry like it never happened and it saved us washing the bike clean!

Point of the story- don’t let a little rain ruin your day!

We just got back from WDW and let me tell you the weather is random and yes it will rain. We were there during tropical storm Beryl. Yes it rained, poured actually and there was thunder and lightening all around but some how things just continued. The parks stay open unless there is an actual hurricane. The outdoor rides will close down with lightening around but will open back up quickly once it has passed on. Rain, regardless of how much, will not close the park….and believe me it poured when we were there.

it is what they consider the rainy season.  it does cloud over often but seldom rains and if it does rain, it only does for a short time.

as for the potential sea sickness, there are many things that you can take.  the usual pills may cause drowsiness so you may consider ginger pills or a sea band bracelet.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  Well bring yourself some Dramamine ( you’d want that anyway just in case since it IS a boat) and you should be good to go, rough seas or not! 🙂

Ditto on everyone –  cruise and Disney will be great regardless of rain forecast. I’ve been on both many times and never had rain affect my travels.

You will have a great time regardless of the weather.  We had our DW in Jamaica at the end of May – May is considered their rainy season there – GREAT!  Out of our 8 days there, two afternoons it poured for an hour and then the sun came right back out – in Jamaica they call it Liquid Sunshine!  But other than that – it was sunny skies despite the forecast of 60-80% showers/thunderstorms!  You will have a great time I am sure.
