Volatile political state aside, Florida’s natural weather is incredibly unpredictable…in a predictable way, if that makes sense. In short, you can always expect to get caught in an unexpected rain shower when visiting Florida in the summer.

Although Walt Disney World may feel like its own isolated planet, the massive Resort is still located in Central Florida and subjected to the flighty weather.

So, when it comes to visiting a Disney Park in the summer, it’s best to simply prepare to experience the rain because you more than likely will.

It’s something that should be thought through before purchasing any Park tickets, because if there’s anything to know about a Walt Disney World ticket, it’s that you will probably never see a refund. Make no mistake, although it’s the Most Magical Place on Earth, there is no flexible refund policy when it comes to a Walt Disney World vacation.

In this video, a frustrated Guest complains and states they “need a refund” because of their time lost waiting in line, only for lightning in the area to stop the ride’s operations.

It’s worth noting that a Disney Park may reward Guests with a free Lightning Lane opportunity but will never give Guests a refund due to inclement weather. When planning a Walt Disney World vacation for the summer, it’s best to be aware of this!
