So many parents do that (leave their kids there while they ride a ride) At one point I was like 'this isn't a day care, is it?'

I know it probably is dependent on where you work, but are you allowed to wear heels? If so, how tall are the heels allowed to be? I'll be in merchandising and I barely ever wear flats due to my lack of height :P

Were you fall or spring (or both)? One of my roommates worked there are wasn't crazy about it..

Zee - I worked hospitality and we were allowed to wear heels. I think that any "dress shoes" can be heels, but I could be wrong. Nobody lasted more than a month in them though, hahah. I could never find any comfortable dress shoes that would last me through my shifts; I would switch shoes during my breaks.

I'm at DAK this summer though so I'm looking for some hiking boots. Those timberland ones posted earlier look pretty good..

Do any of you know if they have a Shoe Carnival close to any of the spots the bus drops you off?

I do believe that the Vacation Planner costume at most locations calls for Black Dress Shoes, with shoelaces and no visible stitching or logos. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, this changes to brown hiking boots.

They may be. I know people who wore shoes similar to that and no one said anything, but I'd double check before you buy them, I don't want you to get in trouble or anything =/.

Thanks! I just know that my info says it can be a "hiking boot or shoe" and was hoping to stay away from the boots, if at all possible, due to comfort.

Yea a lot of people I worked with switched from the boots to shoes that looked like boots but were more like sneakers (like the shoes you're looking at). I liked my second pair of boots I have, they were comfortable versus the pair I had from Wal*Mart, THEY HURT.

Would plain, black flats be okay? (As long as they had some nice support in them, of course, so I wouldn't want to chop my feet off at the end of the day. )

Someone at some point was looking into getting Crocs... I was at the mall the other day and the lady selling crocs told me to wait until I get to Orlando because they just opened a Croc Outlet down there and you can usually find stuff alot cheaper!! Just thought I would pass that along if you are planning on getting crocs.

Check with your location before getting crocs because in most places you are NOT allowed to wear them. I know that you can't have crocs at any Merchandise/Food locations. A few girls that I worked with were sent home to change after coming in with crocs on.

That should be fine. Per The Disney Look, all Female Dress Shoes should be either Flat or have a well-defined heel. Platform Shoes are not permitted.

With the exception of Lifeguard Hosts and Hostesses, Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members are not permitted to wear Crocs or similarly-styled footware as part of their costume, per The Disney Look.
