Rainy days can put a damper on the day, but think of it this way: It is the perfect opportunity to explore Orlando. So throw on the galoshes, a raincoat and grab the umbrella because a rainy day can be quite the adventure. Here are a few of our favorite places to visit while it's drizzling.

Grab dinner and a flick at the Enzian Theater
At Enzian, the whole dinner-and-a-movie night is combined into one event. The theater, which plays mainly artsy, foreign and independent movies, offers full meals during showings. Along with tapas options (yes, they do have popcorn), wine and beer are offered as well. Servers tend to be young, funky and sweet, especially when you consider that they're working in near-darkness for the majority of the meal service.
