    8/8/09 - 8/15/09 - We're all "adults". Flip-Flops, sandals, or tennis shoes in the parks? Any restrictions?

    Hi Kurt,

    As long as you are wearing shoes (without wheels!) you are all set to hit the parks.  Many people swear by socks and sneakers for touring.  I'm a "flip flop" girl myself.  The last time I wore sneakers and socks to Disney was when my mom insisted that I did about 20 years ago!  Flip flops are fine on every attraction I can think of except Soarin in Epcot.  This attraction has a perfect solution though:   little "baskets" under the seat that you can put your shoes, glasses and other loose articles in before riding.
    You'll see tootsies in all kinds of shoes throughout the parks, including sneakers, Crocs, sandals, flip flops and even high heels (whatever works, right!)  Whatever shoes you chose should be super comfy.  I don't recommend "testing out" a new pair of kicks in the parks.  Go with a trusted, well broken-in pair!

    Have a great trip!
