Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We'll be heading to WDW between Aug 9-18th, 2013. Family of 4 (40,40,7,5). What would be the best footwear to wear for this time of season being on our feet all day/night? Would crocs be good or good old gym shoes with socks? aren't socks too hot?

- Hi Mary!
Different strokes (or shoes, in this case) for different folks!
Both of my girls swear that they are comfortable hoofing all over the parks in good ol' flip-flops. I don't understand it, but they love them. I, on the other hand, will ALWAYS (insert Moms Panel punchline from 2010 here!!) wear BROKEN IN, not new, sneakers with low-cut socks. More specifically, walking sneakers or cross-trainers for both comfort and support.
You bring up an interesting option with Crocs. Many people like the airy comfort of a Croc, and my brother-in-law boasts of their support, but I have never worn them.
So, what I will say, is that if Crocs work for your feet and for those of your family, go for it! I am still ALWAYS going to recommend a nice pair of sneakers (broken in, of course!) :)
I wish you a Magical, and comfortable, vacation this summer!! :)
