It is day two of Annual Passholder Previews at Walt Disney World, and rain has descended upon the Magic Kingdom. While some may look at this as a downer, we at Inside the Magic wanted to take this opportunity to showcase how beautiful this park looks in the rain.

Pictures come from Twitter user @thrillgeek:

While dark clouds hover overhead, Annual Passholders–deprived of the magic for so long–still arrive for their first day back inside the Magic Kingdom. Main Street’s lamp lights reflect off the pavement, creating a shining shimmering splendid effect despite the dreary sky.

Because of the rain, we can see far fewer Cast Members greeting Guests along Main Street and there are no Characters out and about. The My Disney Experience app showed that only the Tomorrowland Speedway was temporarily closed. It is now up and running. Other outside rides such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Splash Mountain, and Jungle Cruise are still open at this time.

This is the second of two preview days at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom set aside exclusively for Annual Passholders. Earlier this week, Disney also hosted two preview days for Cast Members. Both Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom theme parks are scheduled to officially reopen tomorrow, July 11. EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios official reopen July 15.

We at Inside the Magic were at the Magic Kingdom for the first Annual Passholder preview on July 9, and we were fortunate enough to have a hot sunny day in the park. Click the link below to read more about what we experienced.
