    This happened while we were at MGM. We were walking past the 50's Prime Time place and it POURED. So we rushed over to the nearest restaurant and the guy wouldn't let us in EVEN though it was POURING. He's like "We don't open til 4!" and it was 3:50! So needeless to say a CM let us in right after that and said "Sorry" and that guy got a lot of rude comments by other people who weren't let in also.

Anyway, the train was offloaded so we started to run through Main St.trying to get to Tomorrowland. When we finally reached Tomorrowland, I noticed that it was flooded! Near the old Timekeeper building, water was up to my ankles at least. Does anyone know why there was a flood? Does MK have no storm drains, or was there just too much water?

    HEHEHEHE It is funny that you mentioned this... I was in Disney last year with my mom and we were going to go on Stitch's great escape (not one of my favorites!) and it was sprinkling when we go in line.. Well.... We come out of Stitch and it is just POURING.. and I mean the skies opened up and it was releasing every ounce of water it had in it.. Well Tomorrowland was just flooded as well.. I mean there was a good 4 inches of water on the ground. I can proudly say I walked down Main Street barefoot and in the rain and it was the best feeling!! I loved it.. (Didn't want to ruin the new shoes if you are wondering why I was barefoot. LOL) the good part was it was pouring as it was time to leave the park so at least it wasnt the start of the day.. But yea I think they have POOR if any drainage in Tomorrowland. LOL

    you would think so, but I have almost gotten burned by sneaky smokers many times, usually in the mad rush to empty the parks - very dangerous since they are usually held at child-level

    Mgm Flooded

    When i was at MGM 4 years ago one evening it absolutely chucked it down, we where in the shops near the entrance and decided to head for the car as the rain didnt seem to let up, being 17 and not being aware that lightening was striking and could electricute me me and my brother decided to take our shoes off and kick our way through the water gathering up on the walk ways, the water was just above my ankles. I live in the UK so rain like that happens once in a blue moon so i guess it was exciting to me!!!

    evil doer for not letting you in!!!

    I had a similar flooding experience at WDW, only mine was at the Contemporary. We had ridden the boat back in the pouring rain (there wasn't lightning...just lots of rain), and when we got back the walk to the building had LARGE pools of water. My daughter and her friend who travelled with us, stayed out and played in it like it was a wading pool...lol...they came back totally drenched.
    I DID IT!! I finished the ToT 13K! It was actually harder than I ever imagined to be honest. BUT I just kept moving, just keep moving...(could barely move AFTER the race, lol)

    Next trip: ???? I almost always have one on the horizon, but given the economy...who knows when I'll get back after this trip!!

    Yes, our Florida weather (which lately hasn't been too sunny) floods the park sometimes. Here is a hint for you about this. When it's pourn down raining, stay at the park!! Florida weather is known to change within 30 min.!!! And because the "snow birds" (what my mom calls tourists) don't know about Florida weather, they leave!! Which lessens the ride lines by half!! This actually works
