    I don't think the rain is usually as much of a problem as people make it out to be. It's stormed pretty much every time I've gone to IOA in the summer, but the great thing about Florida's summer storms is that they usually only last around an hour. Just wait it out, maybe eat some food or look around some shops, and then it'll usually be over and you can go back to riding things.

    In short, yes, DL is that great. It’s the best theme park out there (IMO).

    I mostly agree. I think the outdoor ride thing is largely overblown

    While the look of JW in Hollywood is cool, I would like to see some of the buildings in JP recieve a facelift in this fashion. These are from JW Evolution

    Duck into a store or restaurant for 45 minutes and you're good

    Or you could be on a ride if they had plenty of indoor ones.

    I like that option much more.

    That as well...Duck into a ride

    Personally I like the rain and we continue walking around, unless it's major lightning

    Off the top of my head I can only think of Forbidden Journey, Spider-Man, Kong, and Cat in the Hat. Not really a ton of options and all are pretty spread from each other. It’s ok to say they have a problem when it comes to indoor rides available.

    Poseidon's Fury is also a pretty nice attraction to do when it's raining. Although, admittedly, some people (particularly on these enthusiast sites) aren't interested in attractions that aren't rides.

    I get the need for indoor rides, but Universal clearly wants the park consumption method to be park-to-park. In that case we're looking at Fallon, Minions, Mummy, Supecharged, Gringotts, MIB, Simpsons, Transformers, etc, in addition to all of the ones you've named. There's quite a bit of options for indoor attractions on property, but people have to spring for a park-to-park ticket.

    It's neither here nor there for a lot of people

    Busch Gardens is waaay worse, the whole park basically shuts down

    Yes, and if you’re in IoA how long does it take to get to USF?

    Someone let me know when this thread jumps off the "Too many outdoor rides" conversation and jumps back to the "Another coaster!?" conversation
