    its FL... there IS no guarentee if its going to rain or not. Scattered means randomly throughout the day. Since its 60% its probably going to rain at SOME point during the day. Just like yesterday, it was sunny one minute and downpouring and thundering the next!

    60% means the same here as it means everywhere -- that roughly 60% of the forecast area will see at least some rain. Or more accurately, that the forecasters' best guess is that 60% of the viewing area will see some rain. So no, it won't rain for sure, but the odds are better than even that it will rain at some point.

    As for how much and how long, during the summer you can pretty much count on thunderstorms every day, and you can just as well count on most of them to last five minutes and move on.

    It's not summer, however, and the last week or so has been marked (at least out here by the coast) by relatively long drenching rains of a couple of hours.

    The last I heard, however, the forecast is pretty much the same every day as far out as the extended forecast goes, so I'm not sure changing your plans is going to do much good. My advice would be to pack ponchos and wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

    We used to go to WDW every July. It would rain everyday we were there but usually for about 5 minutes and then the sun was out to roast us again. Of course you won't be there in July but rain should never stop you from having a great time at Disney. Maybe it won't rain much while you are there.

    Take me with you!!!!

    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"
