Meet and greets when it's raining?
« on: February 17, 2016, 01:30:11 PM »
We leave in a few weeks for our trip, and am very excited to see that there's a number of meet and greets on during Swing into Spring. I'm just wondering though, for the outdoor meet and greets, do they go ahead as normal if it's raining, or are they cancelled? Thanks :)

They'll still be outside.
I've met plenty of characters in the absolute pouring rain.

They generally try to move them under cover somewhat - like not inside but put up brollies or will place them under shop coverings etc.

Thanks everyone. Hopefully it won't rain so I won't have to worry about it on our trip  ;)

If it's raining the characters will usually move under cover, although you may still have to queue in the rain. I got absolutely soaked a couple of weeks ago waiting in line so my son could meet Genie! X

I went a few weeks ago and really wanted to meet Alice and Hatter. Unfortuantley it was pouring down so the cast members told us they wouldn't come out in the rain but the Tweedles, White rabbit and the queen of Hearts came out to meet instead! and Peter Pan and Wendy came out in the rain but they stood under the cover of chalet de marionette facing skull rock!

For obvious reasons its trickier for face characters as if their makeup comes off you could be facing major issues!

When I was there it was raining one morning and Genie, Pluto, Captain Hook and Smee were all out on the Adventureland/Frontierland side of the park.

Weather was rubbish yesterday and there were hardly any characters meeting due to the heavy rain.

The only ones i saw greeting were alice, abu, jafar, scrooge and chip and dale during the bad weather.  There may have been more but i didnt see them.

But when it stopped for a while and the sun came out they brought Marie out even though her scheduled meeting time was finished.

On the flip side because there were hardly any characters out that after forest of enchanted 1.40pm show they brought out Baloo and King Louie for a quick meet and greet. I was so happy! I left the show and turned the corner and saw the pair of them. I ran to the line and was lucky as i was the last one in before they closed it.

I was there monday-weds this week. I knew that Tuesday was gonna be a dry day so i got all my character meets done then as i knew weds would be rubbish.

Just follow the weather when you go and get your meets done when the weather is good.

Thats cool. Maybe they do it sometimes regardless of weather.it is just luck if you are in the area at the time when they bring them out.
