no shoes are allowed on the body slides, you have to carry them down. I assume its because you could end up getting stuck with the shoes acting like a brake.Thanks for asking this! We're going in the beginning of May and will be going to the waterparks for the first time. Just a follow-up question: Are there any rules limiting the types of shoes you can wear on the rides there? I googled it and only found that you can't have exposed metal clips. Any other limits? I ask only because some of the water shoes I've looked at look more like sneakers.
One thing I would warn you about is not to buy the cheap ones. They feel fine at first, but, as the skin on your feet and toes get
softer from the water, it's easy for you to rub the skin right off your toes from the stitching.
Yep... that's the reason you can't wear them on the slides it would cause some serious problems. Growing up I remember a kid wearing shoes the local water park and they stopped his feet on one curve but not his body and he went right up and over the side of the slide. He was lucky that the slides weren't made on towers but only carved out of the ground on the side of man made hill. He got some nasty looking scrapes but didn't break anything. Imagine something like that happening at Blizzard Beach where the area beyond the slide is the concrete painted to look like snow, that would result in some serious injury.no shoes are allowed on the body slides, you have to carry them down.

Now if I was visiting any of the beaches in Florida I would be wearing water shoes, but it is over kill in a Disney water park.
Yes the Atlantic side... I went to the gulf side twice in all the time I have visited or lived in Florida and both time there were too many jelly fish to enjoy the beach whether wearing shoes or not. The first time there were half dollar and smaller jelly fish completely covering the beach to the point you couldn't walk to the water without stepping on them... the other time it was just random large balloon looking jelly fish, not a hundred but enough I wasn't going to get in the water. Never have liked the gulf side or wasted time going to it after those two experiences.I assume you’re talking about the Atlantic coast- the gulf coast beaches are renowned for their pillowy soft sand. Even in heat it’s tolerable-
