    Krista, I can't thank you ENOUGH for your thorough, personal & encouraging reply to my question about seat belt extenders!! God used you to help me and I appreciate it. I would love any tips/advice you have as I'm nervous about all the walking, etc.

    Hello again, KR! It is my absolute pleasure to answer your questions!  I want you to have total confidence that you are going to enjoy your trip to Walt Disney World.  My most important piece of advice concerns your footwear.  While I am truly a flip-flop girl at heart, this trip is not the time to wear them.  You will want to wear your most comfortable, broken-in, supportive shoes with the best socks you have.  "Comfort above fashion" is the motto because if your feet are miserable, you will be miserable.  Invest in some anti-chafing gel, too.  You can find this at your local pharmacy.  If your legs are prone to chafing, a small tube of this gel can make all the difference as you glide (instead if rub) through your vacation.  While there is quite a bit of walking, it is not like running a marathon.  The walking is broken up by shows and attractions.  Take advantage of these throughout the day.  There are places to sit everywhere in the parks.  Don't be afraid to take a breather, take in the atmosphere, and people watch.  You blessed my heart with your kind words because I pray to be of help to others.  If you think of anything else before your trip, please ask.  I don't want you to have any worries when you set off for your Magical trip!
