Yeah, see I think we spend a lot of time going from place to place at MK, and we got soaked in the rain there recently. On the other hand, Epcot has multiple attractions in the Land pavilion and in the seas pavilion. I prefer Epcot in the rain.
Mostly, I just try to go with the flow. Rain, shmain...just put on a poncho and make the best of it.
A CM on our last trip suggested DHS, with most attractions indoors. I've found EPCOT to be ok, sticking to Future World. Both parks you just have to hustle from place to place. Both MK and AK have attractions that I know shut down if the rain is too bad, or if there is lightning. Other than TT (which is closed now anyway), I can't think of anything in the other parks that would be affected.
With a poncho and an umbrella (both of which we take with us) any of the parks are good to go to IMO. Other than that, I say Epcot because (for us at least) Nemo, the Land, Imagination and Innoventions all have "attractions" outside the rides and it's easy to spend quite a while inside. WS has all sorts of galleries (which we plan on finding next year) that could probably take a while to go through as well. All the other parks have the rides and you're only inside long enough to get on and off the ride, there's no lingering like you can at Epcot.
I vote Epcot as well. When DD & I were there in June, it rained A LOT, but there was so much to see in the WS. We took our time, seeing many things we had missed, or simply skipped, on previous trips. We could just as easily spent the time in Innoventions.
Any of them, we toss on a rain ponch and keep on trekking, because "We are the Mighty Ducks! Quack, Quack" sorry I couldn't resist.
But seriously, that is what we do, have rain poncho will go. We kind of like it better when it does rain, because it tends to scare the people away. We were at one of the water parks one time and it was a light rain, no lightening so we could stay in the water. The park was practically empty, it was great!
I vote for Epcot in the rain. So many of their rides/attractions are indoors. And DS could spend hours in Innoventions...
