    Do we need water shoes for the water parks? Can they be worn on the slides/rides? I am seeing mixed answers. Our visit is at the end of sept and we are taking our 2 yo.

    Hi Melanie,

    On our family's recent trip to Typhoon Lagoon, we wore our water shoes throughout the park and simply removed them for rides which prohibited them. I felt more comfortable walking through the vast public areas with water shoes and the pavement can get very hot for li'l mousekeeter feet! When in doubt, simply ask a Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction or pool if you are required to remove your shoes. I have no doubt you'll have a great time, Melanie.

    Best wishes,
