You could ask on the Clearwater forum about boat trips as they will probably have more knowledge of what is available.

"The weathers calling for rain today and all wknd:"

I don't see that kind of forecast. I see a CHANCE of rain ranging from 40% to 10% over the next five days. That's no reason to make all indoor plans.

Nothing unusual about the forecast. I'm sure you'll see some storms, but get on with your swimming, beach, park plans. The % chance is not reason to cancel and make indoor plans. This is typical summer weather.

I'd go over to DTD and watch a Movie. Expect Rain while your there.

If it's storming, I'd probably head to Downtown Disney or CityWalk for a movie or a visit to Disney Quest. If only raining...I'd throw on a poncho and still head to the parks. It never usually rains very long and parks could be a little less crowded because others are trying to avoid the rain. We've often visited when rain was forecast and not a drop fell or it rain in one part of the city, but not near parks. Don't worry about it.

I'm also in Orlando now , we are a family of 4 , like stated above dont presume the day is a wash out just because rain is forecast

We get to a park about 8.30 and it doesn't usually rain until late afternoon , the rain doesn't last all that long sometimes but if it does do some indoor rides or catch a movie ,

We tend to leave then go back later at night

go to the dollar store and buy some $1 rain ponchos, keep them in your pocket, and go to the parks. If it does start raining, head for the rides. Most people will stand around, even with their ponchos on, and watch it rain. Meanwhile, the wait times for rides will be much less.

Go to the parks. Wait times will be reduced. As others have said. just make sure you are dressed appropriately. Its worth taking a backpack with some waterproof jackets in. You will need them for the water rides anyway.

When its raining and there is no lightening. I head to the water parks. They are often very quiet when the weather is bad and your going to get wet anyway. No need to worry about getting wet there. :) You will have to be careful though, whilst great if there is no lightening. If there is lightening, you wont be able to go on any rides due to safety reasons. However if there is only rain, no lightening in close proximity to the park you are fine.
