So I put back my skinny jeans, flowy top, and ballet flats and made a bee-line for the closest Target store. Here’s what I found:
Comfy Sneakers with Support. These made it through eleven hours of amusement park madness that included all of the stair climbing, standing in line, and running (yes, I said running….how else were we going to manage to beat strollers, packs of children, and other thrill-seekers to the front of the line?) that you could imagine. With these, my feet were not nearly as tired as I’d expected.
Endurance Tee. Wearing a loose tee shirt helped reduce the amount of sunscreen I had to slather on my upper body and the material of this particular one was sweat and water resistant—always a plus!Cross-body lightweight bag. The small shoulder purse that I intended to bring would not have allowed the hands-free result of a cross-body bag. This one that I found worked great and managed to hold wallets, phones, cameras, souvenirs, sunglasses, and car keys for two!
So overall, the fashion-forward outfit that I had originally planned to wear did not suffice. And although I ended up looking like I just walked out of yoga class, I was very happy to have friend remind me that Disneyland is not a Runway and when standing next to Mickey Mouse….no one is looking at you.
