Shoes Fit for an Amusement Park

Our family is traveling to Disney World this summer and I have absolutely no idea what shoes to wear. I like to wear summer dresses with cute sandals but I do not think any of my current sandals will survive days walking around the parks or will stay on my feet while I go on roller coasters with my little nephews. I need a stylish, incredibly comfortable pair of sandals? —Dede

Manolo says Ayyyy! The Manolo loves the Disney World Land, with the giant walking mice, and the spinning tea cups, and the various and sundry princesses in their wigs and evening makeup! Indeed, who could not love this place where the little children are treated like royalty, and the adults are happy to pay for it?

The Monolo has compiled some of the little-known statistics about the average family visit to the Disney World Land.  During a one-day visit, alone, the average family can expect to walk 17.1 miles, wait in the line 294 minutes (88% of which will be for the Space Mountain), and spend $3,249.27 on souvenirs featuring the anthropomorphic animals and talking teapots. Tiring and expensive, no? But it is all worth it, no, to see the smiles on the faces of the Disney Corporation shareholders.

Here is the Alto Disco from the Clarks ($75, Zappos.com), the sort of deceptively plain, comfortable walking sandal that actually looks great once it is on your feets. The Manolo likes the navy blue, but it is also available in beige, teal, white and black.
