I quickly learned during my first visit to Walt Disney World as an adult that footwear is everything when it comes to all-day comfort, and those stylish but flat sandals do not cut it.
My feet actually burned in pain after spending 12 hours our first day walking from one side of Magic Kingdom to the other and back in an extremely cute pair of sandals that had zero support.
Honestly, walking in those shoes all day was the equivalent of walking barefoot on concrete. If I had to take one more step in those, I probably would have laid down on the sidewalk and pitched a hissy fit that could put a tired and hungry two-year-old to shame.
That was the first and only time I made that mistake.
Nothing ruins a day in your favorite park quicker than painful feet. You are going spend several hours each day in whatever shoes you choose as you navigate parks (I average about 30,000 steps each day at WDW), so it is important to be thoughtful in regards to footwear.

Truth be told, I did not want a Disney World honeymoon.
Because we visit the house of mouse every other year (on average) I wrinkled my nose and shook my head from side to side whenever someone asked if we were planning to do Disney for our honeymoon.
“We want to do something different, something we have never done together before,” I would say to anyone willing to believe me.
For several months I researched cruises, Sandals destinations, and numerous other tropical getaways. I pitched idea after idea to my fella, but I never truly felt excited about any of the options I presented.
Finally, one day, we reached a decision. We were going to go as far south as we could in the United States. We were going to Key West.
We picked out our hotel, started a list of restaurants to grub at and bars to stumble out of, and we even saved ideas for fun excursions.
Then, we totaled it all up and our jaws hit the floor.
“We could take three Disney vacations for the cost of this one,”
were my exact words to Justin.
And that was that — that is the story of how we decided on Disney World for our honeymoon.

I recently received my fifth Stitch Fix and upon unboxing I realized that I have a love/hate relationship with this company. And yet, I keep coming back for more.
What I love:
- The simplicity of someone picking out clothes for you.
- You only keep what you want and send back the rest.
- You try everything on in the comfort of your home.
- The thrill of the surprise of what you receive is fun.
- The clothes are (mostly) high quality and cute.
- The stylist sends items I would never pick in a store for myself.
- You can schedule a Fix anytime you want.
- Your stylist takes notes from your Pinterest to customize the Fix to your style.
What I hate:
- It can be expensive.
- Sometimes the Fix is a complete wash, but you still feel obligated to keep something so you don’t lose your $20 styling fee.
Clearly, I listed more positives than negatives, so I actually do really enjoy Stitch Fix. Well, I enjoy the way I do Stitch Fix.
