Where is a good place to buy water shoes around Disneyworld??

Leaving for the world in a few days and cannot find water shoes that will fit DS7 around here. Anyone know a good store to buy some at around WDW?

The closest Wal Mart is 3250 Vineland Rd. Kissimmee, FL 34746
It's right down 535 from DTD-About ten minutes.

They have any and everything you could ever need!

walmart only had women's and real small boy's watershoes. But they had racks full of them. I walked around the store twice looking for men's/boy's and couldnt find any. I also asked and they said they only had what was on the shelf.

Does anyone know a sports store or something like that around wdw that would have watershoes for a 7 year old boy???? We really want to go to the Disney waterparks this year and from what ive read it will be much much better with watershoes.

Our local Wal Mart in GA has men's and boy's shoes, so it would be worth visiting the one off site. The abundance of water parks and pools in the area make it a necessity for every store to carry them.

Just in case, though, practically every gift shop on hwy 192 will have them in the summer time. Start west of World Drive and you'll find a half dozen gift shops.

By the way, you can also buy them at all Disney Waterparks, around the locker area.

I guess I should have been more clear. We landed last night and went straight to the walmart on vineland. That was the store that did not have anything but little kids and women's.

We are at Pop now. Im going to go check the store here to see if they have any. It sounds weird that the gift stores on 192 sell them but I will check those out as well since we usually eat over there. If worse comes to worse I guess we will just gamble they sell them and have the right size at the water park.

thanx for the info

Try the Super Targets too if Walmarts don't have them.

How about some crocs they can work as water shoes. I just back two weeks ago when Orlando was having record heat and I walk around bare foot around Blizzard Beach you might not need water shoes at all.

While on the way to 192 to check out the gift stores and the Super Target, I checked at the Walgreens across the street from the Publix and they had watershoes!

I am so relieved. Thanx to everyone for all the suggestions.
