If you have ever visited a Disney theme park, then you know that it is pretty much an exercise program disguised as a vacation. Guests who go all day and stay until closing can walk close to 15 miles a day! That’s a lot of wear and tear on your feet and your shoes. Having the right shoes for your Disney vacation can make the difference between a great vacation and one where you are begrudging every step during every day. Here are some of our picks for the best shoes to bring on your Disney vacation!

Dockers Mens Bradley Outdoor Sport Sandal Shoe
If you have been to Walt Disney World Resort, then you know that it is HOT, and sometimes you just don’t want to wear shoes. You want your feet to breathe and feel the surrounding air. Sandals are always fun, but since you are still going to be walking a lot, your sandals must provide as much support as your sneakers.
These Dockers Sandal Shoe have a FEELIT footbed, which gives wearers great support for the long days. They also have a rubber outsole, making them great for all weather conditions. Your feet will feel like they can actually breathe for those days and nights at or Downtown Disney. You can purchase these sandals from Target by clicking here.
Toddler Girls’ Frozen 2 Athletic Sneakers – Blue
Let’s be honest, adults aren’t the only ones who are going to be walking through the Disney Parks. Sure, there are strollers for younger Guests, but a lot of the time, those strollers must be left outside of the attractions and the kids must stand in line. If your child is going to be standing, then they must have comfortable shoes. These children’s sneakers are perfect for the young Frozen fan in your family.
These aqua blue sneakers feature both Anna and Elsa and have Velcro straps, so you don’t have to worry about any untied shoe laces causing a tripping hazard. These shoes are available for $24.99 from the Target website and can be purchased by clicking here.
Toddler Boys’ Marvel Spider-Man Twin Gore Slip-On Sneakers – Black
Superheroes are all the rage nowadays and there may be no more popular hero than the web-slinger himself, Spider-Man! If you’ve got a Spider-Man fan in your family, then these slip-on shoes are great for a day at the Parks. We always think avoiding laces are great for younger Guests, and these shoes just slip right on.
These adorable sneakers feature Spider-Man’s masked face on the front and spiderwebs all over. On the inside is the Marvel logo. They can be purchased from Target for $16.99, and you can add them to your cart by clicking here.
Mickey Mouse Shoes for Kids by Native Shoes – Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary
Raise your hands if you want more 50th merchandise! We already know that the days can be long and hot while at a Disney Park or Disney Springs, and sometimes your kids want a fun way to cool down. For that, Disney Resort hotels have not only some truly great pools, but also fun water play areas — like the Casey Junior Splash ‘n’ Soak Station in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. Well, you may not want your kid wearing regular shoes during this time, as they will take forever to dry out. For those fun times, you can outfit your kids with these fun and waterproof 50th Anniversary sneakers!
As you can see, they have a molded rubber construction, meaning they can get wet and will dry in no time. They also have holes all over, so any water that gets in is sure not to stay in. These incredible Native shoes are available on the shopDisney website for $44.99. There is also a pair featuring Mickey’s lady love, Minnie Mouse. They even have a pair for the little Frozen fan in your family! They are also perfect for days spent at either Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon or Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park. They’re also great for your days walking around a Disney Cruise Line ship.
