Walt Disney World for Rookies: What to Know Before You Go

7. If The Shoe Fits

This tip is another essential for visiting any Disney park, all four parks are incredibly large and cover a wide amount of area. Unless you’re packing fairy wings or a magic carpet, you will be walking, and you will be walking a lot. On my last trip to the parks, my pedometer read 13.69 miles on the first day alone. A good pair of solid soled shoes is a must have for any Disney trip. Tennis-shoes, running shoes, or sneakers are recommended, but if you are sensitive to the heat, Chaco makes a solid sole sandal great for any hard terrain. Make sure they fit and that they are comfortable, as blisters can certainly take some of the charm out of the visit.

Bonus Tip- Be sure to sit down and take a breather every couple of hours, your legs will thank you.
