Rain or Shine - Being a Super Hero means you can weather the storm. Let's face it, it can rain in Florida during this time of year. Our tip is to make the best of it. Pack a rain poncho in your bag and some water proof shoes and jump in a few puddles. If thunderstorms shut down the rides, you can either hunker down at the park for a bit or head back to the hotel.
