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!

If the temps are cool, pack 'em. I've worn them when we go down during the winter, and my sister has been known to pull them out even when the rest of us are braving less than optimal temps with flip flops. They're comfortable, and that's what counts. Would I wear them in April or July or September? Of course not. But right now, with evening temps just as cold as a warm day here in CT, you better believe I'm packing Uggs and my North Face jacket!

The ironic thing about Uggs is that they were created in Australia. Surfers would put them on when getting out of the water because the fur inside helped loosen the sand and absorb the water from their feet/lower legs. So, their initial intent was actually never for cold weather use. Probably why they are so delicate and stain so easy in the snow. Anyway, I think you will be fine if you decide to wear them.

My DD wore hers one trip. Ended up with Plantar Facsitis. They may be comfortable for short walks, but all day at WDW? Wouldn't recommend it.

I'm wondering now about this. . .furry boots in Florida. . . wow, if my wife wore something like that after walking around all day, I wouldn't let them into the resort room afterwards. Not even just to walk them out to the veranda.

Those stinky things would be off before crossing the threshold.

Listen, sneakers in THIS family have a worse reputation than Uggs do!

The thing to remember is that, even though it's Florida and they're not plowing their driveways right now, it's not 100 degrees all year round. I have had plenty of uncomfortably cold days in the Magic Kingdom, and those do NOT lead to stinky feet when Uggs are keeping me warm!
