At the Magic Kingdom, Tuesday's crowds were far thinner than on a normal mid-August day in Orlando's busiest theme park. But many tourists who went ahead with their visit said they had never considered changing plans.
"We just figured Disney would keep us safe," said Michelle Gifford, 54, of Oshawa, Ontario, as she towed around a family that included a 3-year-old, a 2-year-old and a 2-month-old child. "And we got up this morning and said, 'A few raindrops aren't going to stop us.'"
That's my sentiment as well whenever I'm down there. Rain, schmain. I can deal with that easily!
Hopefully, those who stayed and went on with their plans at the theme parks, had a wonderful time with the smaller crowd. I know I did when we visited WDW several years ago in between 2 hurricanes. It felt like we had the parks all to ourselves!
