    We are headed to Artist Point & bluezoo during our trip and I wanted to check the dress code concerning footwear.

    Online I can find dress code for everything but footwear. The sandals are not flip flops & not sport sandals for hiking. They are a dressier sandal. If it helps here is a picture:

    Thanks to all

    I think the only place in Disney that truly has a dress code is Victoria & Albert's. Yes, the others have a dress code listed, but as you've probably seen the only things I don't think are allowed are cut-offs and torn clothing, swim suits, and tank tops. I think even if you did just have flip flops, you'd be fine. Most of the places seem to allow for the fact that a lot of people will be coming to the restaurants from the parks. I also have this excerpt from the Disney Food Blog:

    The official dress code for these [Signature] restaurants states:

    “Men: Khakis, slacks, jeans, dress shorts, collared shirts. Sport coats are optional.
    Ladies: Capris, skirts, dresses, jeans, dress shorts.
    Not permitted in dining room: Tank tops, swimwear, hats for gentleman, cut offs, or torn clothing. While T-shirts are now allowed, the policy remains that T-shirts with offensive language or graphics are not acceptable.”

    In practice, this means that guests are dressed just one step up from what they would wear to the parks. Although some guests choose to wear business casual or cocktail attire to signature restaurants, you will often see at these venues wearing khaki shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers. Men should avoid tank-style or muscle shirts. Women may wear sleeveless tops or sundresses as long as they not overly revealing. There are no prescribed footwear requirements, other than that you must be wearing shoes. Specifics of the dress code are not strongly enforced. As long as you are neat and presentable, you will be seated.

    The signature dining restaurants located within the theme parks (Hollywood Brown Derby, Bistro de Paris) have no specific dress code other than standard park touring attire.

    People at bluezoo generally dress up more than at Disney signatures but a dress sandal will be fine.

    Note that footwear isn't even mentioned in the dress code.

    And very unlikely that ANYBODY will be looking at your feet:):)

    A lot of the "better dressed" (and I use that term loosely) at Blue Zoo are conventioneers just getting out of the days boring meetings. They usually have a few drinks and then cannnot notice much of anything---

    We have eaten at Narcoossees (considered a signature) the last 2 years and anything goes. I wear a sundress and flip flops DH wears khaki shorts and a golf shirt and flip flops. I have seen people in their park attire. Like I said anything goes.

    You will be fine. We've never been to Blue Zoo, but I wore flip flops with capris when we went to Artist Point and Yachtsman Steakhouse :).

    You will be fine. DH and I dressed up a little for bluezoo. I wore a dress and he wore khakis and a nice shirt. There were people there dressed like us and folks in shorts. There was even a family that came in with two kids carrying beach balls (completely inappropriate!). Trust me, you will see people dressed all sorts of ways.

    I honestly didn't know there was such a thing as dress sandals for men, but I agree that the closed-toe sandals don't seem quite as casual as the first pair linked.

    The first step for a mans sandal to wear to dinner is a sandal that hides both the toe hair and the normally nasty toenails that most of us have. Then to be dressy it needs to be leather. And preferably a heel, as opposed to a full flat bottom. IMO
