 Why this works: When visiting an amusement park or outdoor festival where you will be on your feet all day, the first priority is comfort. Consider the weather, plus what you'll actually be doing. It was hot (85 during the day), but a sundress isn't functional getting in and out of rides. I went with shorts, added a comfy shirt that would also keep me cool and some accessories to complete the outfit. Shoes are also hugely important. It was too hot for socks and sneakers, and I'm most comfortable in flip-flops so although they weren't the cutest part of my outfit they did the trick! What are your tips/ what do you wear at an amusement park?

My favorite ride: Space Mountain

I love Disney at night

About our day: at the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I've never been all that psyched about visiting Disney. As a child, I had my sights set on visiting SeaWorld, and I've never been that into Disney characters or movies. As a lover of thrill rides, I also didn't really understand what you did at Disney? Just walk around and look at characters? Aren't the rides just for little kids? BUT after living in Orlando for 1.5 years, having friends in town was the excuse I needed to go see what all the fuss is about. And... I loved it. I would still rather visit Six Flags for the thrill rides, but now I understand that comparing the two is really apples to oranges. Disney rides are about the thrill of sight, and Six Flags rides are about the thrill of adrenaline. There is a time for both, just like some days you might want to go to a museum (Disney) and some days you want to go for a hike (Six Flags). Consider me the newest Disney convert! ;-)
