I had some Speedo sport thongs I loved, they have the thicker, cushier, sneaker-type soles like this:

Not a crocs girl but I did like the flip flops that were entirely made of the molded material - Athens, I think? The ones with the cloth straps rubbed me. Don't know about these, but think they are very cute:

The best for me so far for all-day wear are Teva Westwaters sandals, and I think they are also very cute: but I am now very sad because I went to find a link and I guess they don't make them anymore. So many of those sport sandals are ugly, but these would have even gone with a casual skirt.
I've also got some Clarks Privos which do very well but are very ugly.
I work in a hospital and despite that I still HATE crocs, but my croc sandals are probably the best things I've ever bought and they weren't that expensive! Mine are similar in style to the ones above but without the wedge. I only wore my flip flops when it was wet/rainy so I didn't get my socks wet/get blisters and they were perfect. Didn't slip or skid or anything when it was wet out!

In regard to what type of shoes...

Reef flip flops are awesome. I just tried them this summer and love them, although I have not done Disney in them. Typically I wear Abercrombie & Fitch rubber or leather flip flops to WDW and make out great. I will also wear Toms or Sperrys if not super hot. Sperry also makes flip flops, but haven't tried them in disney yet. Good luck!!

I just picked up a pair of Reefs from Costco. Starting to wear them to see how comfy they will be in wdw. I usually wear Soles and Birks. Teva too.

Now, off to get Slurpees for the kids as reward for a great job in swimming. And one for me, too.
So sorry for your loss

To answer an earlier question, as of last summer, pool noodles are allowed.

Does anyone know what’s going on at the Yacht Club between 8/20 and 8/30 (when we are going)? I did a search on rooms during that time frame and there are none available.

I put in a room request (staying standard view club at YC) for a room near the Admiral or Commodore suites hoping to get a room on the water side closer to the lounge. If anyone has a better suggestion, let me know. Would get an official water view but we have 5 in our party.

We are traveling that week too 8/23-8/30. That's funny because I did a quick search myself today only with the special offer and there were no rooms.but I just figured it was just the offer. I know of a deal that week with some of the resorts but I'm surprised that its sold out.

Too everyone with the answers to the flip flops thank you so much for the suggestions I am looking them all up so see which ones I should try out. I am hopping for no blisters on this trip.

I think I will totally freak when it hits 60 day mark.. I really haven't started my disney pile yet!

Last trip I wore just regular sandals to the park. I can NOT wear sneakers in the summer. If my feet are hot so is my body. But I want something more comfy than old navy flip flops.

any recommendations???? I ordered croc flip flops. I am soooo not a crocs person. But I trying to avoid blisters
ff topic: I have a pair of Naot sandles that I wear at Disney, super comfy. I also find Clark's to be great. I've also been getting a lot of emails on Ugg sandles & boat type slip ons that are super cute. I live in all of my Uggs (non summer of course) because they feel so good, so thinking these may be good for me.

I read a tip that said spray your feet with with spray anti-perspiration deodorant to prevent blister & reapply if feet get wet. I haven't tried it yet.

Thanks! That would be wonderful if we could use noodles in the water parks!

We will be there the same time, had no idea they are booked up. I have a standard view booked, and asked in my requests to have upper floor near lobby.

Original Teva Mush flip flops are the only thing I'll wear on my feet in WDW. They dry quickly and they are not slippery when wet. Even if we go in December, I wear my Tevas.

But that only happened that one time for me. I think any flip flops can be a bit tricky when wet...but maybe that's just me

I literally wear these everyday rain or shine and have had no problems. I find them plenty supportive...I have other non-flip flop Sanuks and wore them walking 45 miles in San Francisco last year...I just keep buying more b/c I love them!

I also love Reefs which are more structured but also "ridiculously comfortable" which is their tagline. They have a bunch of styles and last forever

Good luck! Good, cute and comfy shoes are hard to fine...esp for walking Disney!!!
Reefs!! Yes!! Especially the "quilted" ones!
