Welcome to one of my newest (and my new favorite) post series, what to wear at Disney. This series be a little of what I think would work well, what I’ve tried that works, what doesn’t, and a dash of inspiration. I’ll be discussing how I wore it (like how long, where, etc.), the comfort level, if I plan on wearing them again, and where to get similar if not the exact same pieces for your Disney trip.

|ears:: vest :: shirt :: skirt :: compression shorts (can’t see ’em) :: sandals|
- Headgear:: Whether its ears, an ear hat, or a plain ol hat, head gear is handy to have to keep hair out of your face. I also pack a baseball hat for the sunny days to keep the sun out of my eyes and off my face.
- Celebration button:: Disney vacation are all about celebrations. Wear the button to let others know! All the cast members want to make sure you’re having the greatest celebration possible.
- Crossbody Bag:: I see seasoned vets carrying all kinds of bags, but I recommend a crossbody because you can access the bag with two hands while still walking instead of having to stop or pause to use one hand to hold while you dig in your tote for something.
- Extra Layer:: After May, when I wore a vest the entire time, I decided that was the way to go. I loved having all the extra pockets without sleeves and a thick layer making me super hot. I highly recommend bringing one also as a rain protectant.
- Flowy Bottoms:: I endorse wearing skirts in the parks– with compression shorts underneath. I’m not comfortable wearing leggings or compression capris without a covering them up so cute cotton skirts work for me. I also pack chino shorts for a switch up, but I love my skirts and compression shorts underneath.
- Comfortable footwear:: There’s no one pair of shoes that I think works across the board for everyone. Though I love my Toms, I’ve also tried some other great shoes. I’m doing a write up on my Reef Bella Costas and my Birken Karios when I get home. Take the shoes you find most comfortable at home. Please don’t ever try new shoes at Disney!
Going to Disney World is something I’ve enjoyed for many years. Over that time, I’ve tested several tips given to me and learned a lot on my own. On “Disney Days” I share some of what I’ve learned about touring, hotels, and how to have the best trip whether it’s your first or thirty-first.
- Comfort:: After walking 26 miles and only having two blisters, that’s rare. They didn’t rub my ankles and gave decent support
- Cute:: Skirts are my favorite bottoms at Disney because they’re breezy and cool, especially with running shorts under neath. TOMS are definitely cuter than running shoes with skirts.
- Material:: Canvas outer keeps your foot cooler in the sticky hot Orlando weather
- Safety:: Rain is a daily occurrence at WDW most of the year. TOMS do not give you traction on slick pavement
- Smell:: Due to the leather inners and the fact that they’re recommended to not be worn with socks, the excessive walking (and sweating) done on a Disney trip can make them smell pretty bad
- Material:: This is a pro and a con. It’s a con because they can wear out so quickly. If your TOMS are pretty worn and then you decide to walk in them 13 miles a day for a week or so, you’re bound to get holes
