    The rain picked up as we cruised to the Magic Kingdom

    It was blowing and raining pretty good as we waited to dock. We docked with no problems and the skies opened even more. Security worked quickly to try and keep everyone moving and dry. They turned off the finger scans so entry into the park went faster too in an effort to get guests out of the rain.
    We sought cover under the train station since it was close and large.

    The front of the train station was roped off for a reception, guessing for the parade that did not happen due to the storm.

    The rain picked up again so I spent a good portion of the rest of the evening standing under cover trying not to get soaked. The radar/forecast kept saying it would blow through but it seemed to keep lingering.
