    I find it very difficult to shave my legs in the showers of most hotels, has Disney considered adding a foot rest in the showers to allow for ease of leg shaving?

    The Moms Panelists are not Disney employees, so we're not privy to resort and room planning information, but my guess is that it would be quite unlikely that Disney would retrofit their tens of thousands of hotel rooms in this manner. You are, however, welcome to write to WDW and make this suggestion. All guest comments should be directed to the Guest Communications Department. They can be reached at wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com or at:

    Walt Disney World Guest Communications
    PO Box 10040
    Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040 

    They'll make sure that your suggestion gets into the right hands at Disney World.

    And now onto the Too Much Information portion of this answer -- male readers avert your eyes :-)

    I have this problem sometimes too, but rarely at WDW. The vast majority Disney hotel rooms have their showers within bathtubs. When I'm shaving my legs, I just prop them up on the side of the tub if I'm showering. Or sometimes I'll shave them while taking a bath (no awkward balance issues with this method). Then, just take a two-second long shower to get all the little hairs off you.

    Another alternative would be to bring a small waterproof stool to WDW that you could place in the shower with you as a leg rest. I just did a search on Amazon.com and found several plastic step stools that fold flat for storage (or packing). One that looked particularly promising was the E-Z Foldz Step Stool that sells for approximately $15.

    There are also wonderful spas at WDW where you could get your legs waxed and just avoid the whole shaving thing altogether. A full leg wax at the Mandara Spa at the Dolphin hotel costs approximately $75 and would leave you smooth for ages (or at least until the end of your vacation).

    Have a great trip to WDW!
