NB is my shoe of choice for WDW

It really works well in Fla where I tend to sweat a lot in the hot summer weather and does not sweat off all day
when this happens to me I use a anti-fungus cream and it takes care of it overnight

The material is thin which is good for late spring/summer/fall. These are keepers for me and I may pick up another pair or 2.

The pants can adjust from full length pants to capri length. But when they are at full length the legs are alot wider than I like so they'll be going back. They are the same material as the shorts.

Both are drawstring waists which I also liked. I know it's hard to find plus size cargo shorts so this is one place to get them.
What colors did you get? I am looking at ordering some and I don't want the light stone if they are going to be see through if they get wet on the bottom. Also are they true to size?

Thanks!

Three years ago we went to Williamsburg, VA on a 102 F. day, and the next day I had some sort of seizure and ended up hospitalized for quite some time. They could never find any reason for it (despite every test in the book) other than dehydration and exhaustion. Now we're going to Disney this July and I'm terrified the same thing is going to happen. The problem is the rest of my family is in terrific shape and I push myself too hard to keep up with them. Common sense tells me to take it easy, drink, drink, drink, and use my mister/fan, but are there any other tips you can give me to make my vacation seem like a vacation and not like the Bataan Death March?
Do yourself and your family a favor and rent an ECV. It is worth the money and thye will be running to keep up with you

On Woman Within you can get 50% off of the higher priced item when you order 2 items-that might be a first time customer special Anyway, I used this yesterday to get myself a swimsuit and a pair of cargo shorts that convert from bermudas to regular shorts.

This is the suit I picked up and I'm really hoping it does the trick, I have areas I want covered (of course they show a Tigger person wearing it, but I think it will work)

I love that suit but does it hsave a builtin bra? Please let me know when you get it

I just want to say that I subscribed to this thread because it was mentioned on the Dis Unplugged Disboards threads show.

I would not have known that it was here, but I'm glad that Kevin featured it as his thread.

I'm now subscribed to this thread, and am reading every single post (except for the mean one that was mentioned on the show).

Thanks to the person who started this, and to everyone who has posted.

I've read through all the posts now, and have picked up some good information about shoes. That's the problem I have - my feet HURT!

I saw so many people post about Body Glide. I just wanted to chime in and say that you can also use antipersperant. It works the same way.

I wore a pair of shorts (a little higher than mid-thigh) at Animal Kingdom, and of course, with the humidity, they rode up and I had chafing. The next time I wore the shorts again, I put a swipe of Degree on each thigh, and it didn't happen again.

Also, sometimes we get lucky in MouseGears at Epcot, and find 3X polo shirts for men. Hope this helps any men looking for casual work shirts.

Can't wait to read more posts!

Just returned from the World a couple weeks ago and wanted ro let the ladies know they are now carrying some women's t-shirts in sizes up to 3X. They are women's cut so close to the body. I bought one that fit great and is very stylish (It has a pink plaid Mickey silhouette on it) I hope this is a trend that continues and they continue to cater to us Pooh sizes!

Thanks!

They fit true to size on me. I got brown and blue. I was worried about the light stone too so I decided against ordering it. They do have the pull tight string at the waist. I tucked that into the waistband of the shorts so it wouldn't stick out so much.

They worked great on the trip. I had my Passporter Pouch around my neck and everything else went into the cargo pants pockets.

I used them twice since I've gotten home too. It's a wierd feeling to go into Walmart with only my phone, car keys and wallet in the pockets but it's very freeing. LOL
