Only resorts I've been to are POP, where I've stayed twice, and I visited CBR in February for a bit.
More Disney time is always recommended around here.

That made me laugh! Totally something my DH would do.

Actually, it hasn't been too bad out today. I think it was in the low 50's today and the temps will be going back up to the high 60's and low 70's by either tomorrow or Monday. I'm still not turning on our heat yet.

Oh, and I didn't think anyone would say it was a bad idea! I was originally going to work for 2 hours that morning, which is why I did the later flight. But realizing that after taxes I'll get like $25 for that day and knowing I could get HOURS more at WDW instead, I'm going to change it now.

I'm in the mood for crafting but in actuality I'm really just putting off grocery shopping.

Hey, do you guys think it'll be warm enough for sandals on a Dec trip to WDW? I just looked at my feet and I'm going to need a pedicure if that's the case I would love some fancy disney toenails!
Good idea with putting the LGMH on your lanyard! I'd been wondering where to put mine sine I'm not planning on carrying a bag in the parks and that's the perfect solution.

If the high is around 70 I'm sure I'll wear my good Merrell sandals some while we're there. If I wear the same tennis shoes the whole trip my feet will be miserable by the time we head home!

I think I already have my cream colored Clark sandals packed.....they are super super comfy.....and I just ordered two pairs of Sketcher's shoes from Amazon......a really cute pair of black mary janes.....and a nice casual grey mary jane. They have good arch support, which I need. If it's cold enough to wear long pants I'll bring my Dansko's....which I wear every day at work in the lab. They are a bit heavy but my feet never hurt when I wear them (and I'm on my feet 90% of the time at work). I'm excited to get those shoes just to make sure I don't need to send them back. Wanna get them nice and broken in before Dec!

As far as the toes go......I may tend to do the MM heads......what about red toes with black MM heads? Or I have a really pretty hot pink polish?

Champion job of putting off a chore that ranks right up there with laundry as far as being annoying goes!

And the red with black Mickey heads sounds fantastic. Hmm....I think I may have a sparkly red polish in my drawer

As I live in FL, I will be wearing sandals (my comfie Keens) at WDW just like I would normally be doing in Ft. Lauderdale. Of course, if it unseasonably cold, we shall see what I do.

No matter what though, I will be wearing my most comfortable walking shoes:

Confession time

Raise your hand if you are holding on to an ADR that you will probably cancel. (Don't need to admit what it is)

It very well might be ... I have often worn flips flops during the day in December in GA. Just remember though, you might need to change them for the evening if the temp drops a lot.
