    My family is very excited to be travelling to Disneyland from New Zealand in May. We are staying at the Disneyland Resort so we can go full Disney! My question is around suitable footwear - are there any restrictions on the type of shoes we can wear?

    Hi there, Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited for you to make your journey all the way to the Happiest Place on Earth! When you stay on Disneyland Resort property you are going to be able to experience the magic of Disney your entire trip, even after you leave the parks. Your vacation is going to be practically perfect in every way!

    When it comes to footwear in the parks, anything is really permitted, but you will really want to dress for comfort. I usually like to wear sneakers or comfortable sandals. While I have seen some Guests wear adorable heels or wedges with fantastic themed outfits, this may not be the most practical option if you plan on walking throughout the parks all day. Sometimes I have even brought backup footwear and kept it in a locker rental in the park in case I needed to change out of my shoes if they got too uncomfortable. These lockers are also wonderful for storing layers for chilly evenings or for storing souvenirs purchased throughout the day.

    Before you leave, make sure you download the official Disneyland app. This will be your one-stop-shop for all things Disneyland Resort during your trip as well as a handy way to plan and familiarize yourself with the Disneyland Resort prior to coming. You can view park maps, locate must-do attractions, and even make dining reservations. When you arrive you can see attraction wait times, locate Characters, and even mobile order food and beverages from select Quick Service restaurants in both parks.

    I hope this helps, and I want to wish you a Fantasmic day!
