    Have your kids worn CROCS to Disney? Did they like them & where did you get them? My DD's want a pair for our trip & I was wondering how kids like them. TY!

    My kids have not worn them yet but they will on our next trip. They sell them at Dillards- that's where I got mine- for adults as well as kids. Even have my two yo's size. If you don't have a Dillards, try going to Click on "Shop" then "find crocs near you". I think everyone should try them on before buying them. Some people really just do not like them.

    BTW, I wore mine to WDW and really liked them. I did switch shoes on the third day but only because I think that is always a good idea- no matter how comfy your shoes are. I liked the holes on top for insulation, I liked that when they got wet it only took them a few minutes to dry and they were never slippery, I loved that they were so light- my legs never got tired!

    My kids got them and are ready to use them. My DD and I also have the flip flops. I have to agree, I like to switch shoes from time to time. We'll also be using our Birkenstocks! Leaving in 16 days!

    Crocs are very popular in my area, with kids more so than adults. At my dd's school, half the kids are usually wearing Crocs (or croc-offs) at any given time. Many have multiple pairs and they like to switch the heel straps around, and wear one of one color, one of another. My 8yo wears them nearly every day, unless she needs tennies for P.E. or if it's snowing, and the 3yo wears them almost as often. They have both walked all over WDW for a week straight, DL, and local amusement parks, zoos, etc, wearing them in complete comfort.

    Here, they are available in mall kiosks, Hallmark stores and department stores, but they are often low on the popular colors. To make sure you get the color and size you need, I recommend trying them on in a store to figure out the right size, then ordering them on-line if they don't have the color you want in your size.

    Good luck and have a great trip!

    DD9 wears hers every visit to the parks. They are her shoe of choice for Disney. The last month of school she even started to wear them to school - before that she was afraid the kids would make fun of her since no one else had them. I told her she was being FASHION forward and needed to start the trend in the 3rd grade! I love that she does not need socks! She loves her flip flops too, but admits that Crocs are better for Disney - no naked toes to get smooshed!

    We both need another pair!

    She tried a knock off brand on at Toys R Us yesterday and said THEY ARE TOO HARD!!!!

    We bought Payless for my great nephew when he visited and he loved them! I did not want to spend too much money in case he went home and his parents didn't like them for some reason! (You know how families are!)

    If you can't find them prior to your trip, and you are flying into OIA, they have a croc store in the airport!!!

    Hi! We jumped on the Croc trend a year ago and we tried them out at WDW. DD's and I would usually wear tennis shoes/socks the first half of the day and switch to crocs for our late afternoon/evening park. We LOVED them - especially on "wet" rides. We don't usually wear flip-flops or sandals to the parks because we find tennis shoes to be more comfortable for extended walking, but Crocs were just as comfortable for all of us!

    We have since gotten new pairs for this summer and we did try "croc-offs" but couldn't stand the feel of any of them. Have fun! :)

    DS10 has worn Crocs to WDW both May 2005 and May 2006. We got ours at the local Hallmark store. My mother also got Crocs for Mother's Day and wore them at WDW this year and LOVED them. No one had any blisters at all and our feet were dry 5 minutes after getting soaked on Kali!!! We love our Crocs.

    My almost-three-year-old has a pair of the khaki ones. She likes them with socks, but without them, the black plastic piece rubs a blister on the side of her right instep. I can't figure it out, because I don't feel anything with my finger. She also trips frequently in them. But they really are adorable on her (they're an 8-9 toddler). We got ours at Dillard's and it was the only pair in the only color they had. Our Dick's doesn't carry them that small, and Von Maur was out of all the smaller sizes.

    She wears an 8.5 toddler. I think they fit her fine. I don't think she could wear the 10-11.

    I"m looking at the crocs site. DD has a pair 12/13 that we bought at the Hallmark store. I want to get her the next size up in purple. I'm thinking it's a 1/2?????? BUT....I can't find it on the site. It says Caymans come in kids sizes. Am I totally missing it??? Thanks.

    I have a pair of light blue Crocs that I wore to Disneyland last fall.. I was the only one in our group whose feet didn't hurt! :) I plan on bringing them with me to WDW this summer, and I'm hoping I can convince my husband to get a pair too. His back and feet often hurt after a lot of walking, and I think Crocs will help. :)

    DD4 and DS6 wore their crocs ALL 6 days we were at Disney 2 weeks ago and NEVER once complained about their feet and had no blisters.

    We bought ours at a Crocs stand at the mall.
