Uggs in parks?

Hi everyone,

My family and I will be heading to WDW next Tuesday!

I have a pair of Uggs but without the fur inside and they are the most comfortable pair of walking shoes...will I look awkward wearing them in the parks/Florida??

Just trying to prepare myself :-)

Thanks in advance!

When I was growing up, uggs was a slang term for ugly people, so I totally didn't expect this topic to be about footwear!

P.S. - my wife says she's seen lots of them in the parks!

I don't have any idea what an ugg looks like, but people wear all sorts of ridiculous things in the parks. Hang out around here long enough, you will see the pics.

And really, everyone is so busy having their own fun that only vapid teenage girls would spend time looking at (much less caring about) what other people are wearing.

I admit I do look at people's footwear and have seen all kinds of things so no, you will not look awkward wearing Uggs at Disney World. You name the shoe and I'm sure I've seen it at Disney World. From six inch heels to those shoes that look like socks, it's been worn at Disney World.

We just discussed this at my moms group tr other day. Some of them wear them - others can't fathom wearing them in Florida no matter the weather. I can't wear them period as they don't have any support - but I say if you want to them go for it! It has been chilly here!

I wore them in December 2010 for almost our whole trip. But it was also in the 20s and 30s most of our trip.

When I went down to Disney this past December 15th, we had beautiful weather so I didn't pack my ugg's as I checked the weather prior to going. But if the weather forecast had been for cold weather, I would have worn my ugg's as they are so comfy and warm.

Uggs don't look anymore ridiculous than Crocs.

Although you won't need Uggs (come on, it's central florida), I have seen people wearing them in past years. Im sure you'll look fine!

I think Uggs would be fine for the parks, especially in January! However, I recommend a pair of backup sneakers in case it rains; it would not be fun to walk around in soggy boots! I have made the mistake of wearing boots in the snow, and the result was very wet and cold! Hope this helps and have a great trip!
