Women’s S Sport By Skechers Premium Cushion Performance Sneakers
One of the most important things when looking for good shoes to wear in a Disney Park is to make sure they have the proper amount of cushioning. Since your feet will be pounding the pavement all day, so proper cushioning is important to give your feet the support they need. These Skechers come in navy, black, and grey, and are a great option when thinking about comfortable shoes for your trip.
These Skechers also have mesh, which allows your foot to breathe, which is also very important. They also have a traction outsole, which is a great thing for those wet Disney Park days (which can be nearly every day in the summer months at Disney World). And the best part? They’re machine washable!

Men’s S Sport By Skechers Aderlee Performance Athletic Sneakers
Now, these sneakers are specifically walking shoes, but they are designed for athletes, meaning they are sturdy. These Skechers Performance sneakers not only have memory foam for perfect cushioning, but they also slip on, are machine-washable, and have a shock-absorbing midsole. These sneakers are great for those Disney dads and teen boys who never want to waste a moment sitting down!
These comfortable shoes also have great traction and can be thrown in your washing machine when they need a cleaning.

Dockers Mens Bradley Outdoor Sport Sandal Shoe
Both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are in very warm locations, 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, it is important that your sandals 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.
Walt Disney World Map Clogs for Adults by Crocs
Crocs are just a trend that has remained popular for years. Most likely because they are just so dang comfortable. Crocs come in a ton of fun colors, but this design may take the cake. These crocs have an all-over print of a map of Walt Disney World from the Magic Kingdom and beyond. They also have monorail and Magic Kingdom Jibbitz — which are rubber pin-type pieces that fit right into the holes of the crocs.

Disney Girl Frozen II hook and loop closure Sneaker
Of course, we can’t forget about the kids in your group! Even if they are sitting in strollers for most of the day, there will be times that your young one will have to stand with you in line, and you don’t want them complaining that their feet are tired. These walking shoes are perfect for the young Frozen fan in your family. These shoes feature a Velcro strap, so you don’t have to worry about pesky laces.
Are you an Anna fan or an Elsa fan? Doesn’t matter with these adorable shoes, since both sisters are featured on one side of the Disney shoes. These are available from Target and you can buy them by clicking here.
Mickey Mouse Shoes for Kids by Native Shoes – Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary
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 not only have 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 splashingly fun times, you can outfit your kids with these super 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. 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.
