Let’s face it, your kids are going to be doing a lot of walking at Disney. The last thing you will want is for them to have blisters or sore feet. Many people believe that sneakers are the best shoes for kids to wear to Disney, but I don’t believe that to be true for a few reasons:
- Sneakers are heavy. With all that walking little legs do, heavy shoes like sneakers can wear their little bodies out a bit faster.
- The Florida heat is intense and your child’s feet will sweat, especially in socks & sneakers. Having a breathable shoe would be so much more comfortable and allow them to cool off easier.
- There are water rides at the Disney parks. If you plan on going on rides like Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids, you can be guaranteed that your feet will get wet. No one wants to walk around in soggy socks and shoes all day.
My pick for the best shoes for kids to wear to Disney are KEENs.
These shoes are a cross between a sandal and a water shoe. They are super comfy, can easily be slipped on & off, have air vents and are water proof! They are also closed toes so you don’t have to worry about little feet having their toes exposed. KEENs come in an array of colors and variations so it is easy to find one your child will love.
