Thanks! I was debating between that style and the Mary Jane style: http://www.amazon.com/Skechers-Womens-Walk-Bright-Side/dp/B00A64F8AC/ref=pd_rhf_sc_p_t_2_NPEH
On our September trip a couple years ago, I switched between these and these. LOVE Teva's sandals! We were at Disney for 10 days, and my feet never got sore and I never got blisters. I can't stand wearing shoes when it's really hot out, and the sandals come in handy for any water rides or downpours as they dry so quick and you never have to worry about wet shoes/socks. I'll probably get a new pair of each for our trip this August.
Might have to get those, too. I bought mine in September, those look more "August".
I haven't tried Teva's flip flops. The last time I wore Tevas was in back in the early 90s I think! Maybe I'll have to forgo my Reefs and try them out!
I LOVE the bright lime ones! And the turquoise ones too! I think I might get lime ones! And if I like them maybe I'll get a more muted pair in that style or the style you suggested. I just don't think I can pass up the fun, bright colors! I am hoping to get into a training at Disney in April so I'd love to have them for the training since we'll spend a lot of time touring and on our feet. Hopefully bright green shoes won't be frowned upon!
Oh shoes...Oooooh Shoes. I do need a pair of Summer shoes.
I have an old, really old pair of converse thin sole low tops. Which I would buy again, if they were not only available on a Polish web page. : Oh why Lord?
I have an older pair of 3 inch heel Dansko sandals. Whatever I buy I will have to wear throughout next Summer, not just at Disney. So it will be a trip finding the perfect sandal for work and walking miles in Disney. Or a light sneaker I am willing to wear. Maybe I will convert my dollars to euros and get those Chucks!
I wore regular low-top Chucks in Dec and they killed my feet! I don't know that I'll ever trust a pair of Chucks at Disney again!
I was wiling to convert my dollars to Euros for the Tattoo Ariel shirt from Poland, but they only had an XXXXXXXS left and that just wouldn't work!
I'm also really kicking myself for not getting the Mickey Harrison crocs that look kind of like Toms in December when I finally found them. I think that was a souvenir shopping fail on my part, but I was trying to be frugal!
Here is the first round of requests! Sorry it took me a bit, been a tad bit busy. If anyone else would like one just let me know!
We are visiting the World in August, too. Flying to Orlando Aug 4th, flying home Aug 10th. We will get to Orlando airport a little after 10 am. We are taking our three teenagers, and my hubbys parents are going as well. THey will get to the air port like 25 minutes after we arrive there, so I'm hoping we will be on the Magical Express together!! It's going to be mom & dad's first time there. We are so excited!!!
For me and the hubs, this is our third visit. We went in '09 with the kids for three days- did Magic kingdom and Hollywood Studios. We drove down and drove home. NEVER AGAIN!! We stayed at POR and I just ADORE that resort!
August 2012, hubs and I went to he World alone. We spent 5 days there, and did two parks- Animal Kingdom and Epcot. We called it our honeymoon (married 18 years, have never had a vacation alone, and did not have a honey moon). We had so much fun, and were so relaxed. We stayed at Caribbean beach....it was OK, but I like POR better.
So this time we are doing all 4 parks, and we have a meal reservation each day. I am really excited to do some new stuff with the kids, and to go with his parents on their first visit!! We are staying at All Star Movies.
I'll post our ADRs in another post.
I would love a princess one! Thank you!
We did O'Hana for dinner last year and WE LOVED IT!!! We even did the dance at the end. Hubby wore a Hawwiian shirt and the performer loved it so much she commented on it and gave him two leis instead of one LOL
We have reservations at O'Hana the first night of our trip. I can't wait to take the kids there.
We also really like the Coral Reef. DID NOT LIKE SHUTTERS AT ALL.
I am most looking forward to eating in the castle with my dd!
Everyone added and updated! Thanks for catching my error, the past few updates were done at 3am and I was a little cross-eyed by then
A warm Team August to those who have joined the team! Oh the time is going by so fast but so slow! LOL Seems like I dont have enough hours in the day to get done what I need to but it sure seems like it's taking forever to get to August
Oh well, maybe I shouldn't rush things to much, by the time we go its the end of the summer and when we get back the kids are right into school.
Change to dates aug 15-27 now TIA for all you fab work on this board and the Facebook page
Here;s our plan:
DAY 1: Flying from Dayton, Oh to Orlando, will arrive in Orlando airport approx 10 am
Get checked in, explore the resort, let the kids chill at the pool.
Dinner at O'Hanna at 5:15...I think we can watch the fireworks from the Poly, right?
Day 2: Monday- Dinner at Mama Melrose (Hollywood Studios) at 6:20.
Day 3: Tuesday- Dinner at Coral Reef at 4:00 (Epcot)
Day 4: Wendsday- BREAKFAST at Tusker House (Animal Kingdom)
Day 5: Thursday- Magic Kingdom this day. MK is my favorite park and I can't wait ti see the new Fantasyland!! We have the kids going to Crystal palace with Pooh and friends at 5:15, and just us adults going to Tony's TOwn Tavern at 8:00... we really wanted a dinner out away from the kids
Day 6: Friday- Chef Mickey at 5:35.
Day 7: Saturday, our last day Figure we'll get checked out and hit Downtown Disney for some retail therapy. Our flight doesnt leave till 6:55 that night, so we will have most of the day!!
Don't know if this the right to request one?? Could I get one with minnie? Please
I love Pecos Bills but it never seems to be open in August for some reason. Sorry HBD didn't work out...just another reason to plan for future trip!
We always do Cape May too -and I am looking forward to Saana this year too!
This becomes my never-ending debate with myself every trip! I used to just wear flip flops and crocs and be perfectly happy - feet never hurt, etc. But as I landed in the 40+ crowd the body doesn't hold up as well without some type of support in the shoe. I am planning on running on this trip, so I will have my running shoes with me, but I hate having my feet enclosed all day in the parks, and with the rain in August, I prefer something that will dry fast.
We are doing the WAT this year, so we have the added shoe issue in that everyone will need closed toed shoes for this. I have read that closed toe keen's are acceptable, and I know they get rave reviews for comfort and support, so I am thinking I am going to bring my sneakers, a pair of flip flops for pool and half day parks and then look into teva or keen sandals that will dry fast, are open and breathable, but will still have a closed toe. Not sure how I'm outfitting the rest of the family yet!
I have a pair of the go walks - although they are three years old now and have seen better days. But I just googled the other two you mentioned. I only see the recovery flips in men's. Do they make them in women's? Not that that is a huge deal - I don't mind wearing a men's, it's just harder to find the size sometimes. And as for the 5 fingers - these always intrigue me, but I haven't made the plunge. How are they? Do they take some getting used to? And are they comfortable around the toes?
