Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Wear In Orlando When It Rains?
To stay dry in Orlando when it rains, a raincoat or poncho is essential. We also recommend quick-dry clothing and waterproof shoe covers.
If you don’t have any shoe covers on hand, you can tie up a small carrier bag and put that over your shoes.
Now that you’ve got your clothing sorted, you also need to worry about other personal belongings. If you’re staying outside in the Orlando rain, don’t forget to bring some ziplock bags with you.
These will protect your electronic equipment such as phones, laptops, and tablets. Unless you’re wearing waterproof clothing, these items will get damaged in your pocket.
And it’s not like we can always be prepared for heavy rain, right!? Sometimes it comes out of nowhere!
