Wardrobe question

OK -- here's a topic of conversation for anyone interested.

I ordered (and already received in the mail) our new Crocs for this trip. Still trying to find a one-piece bathing suit for my older daughter for the water park, and I just bought another bathing suit for myself.

Next up, daytime wardrobe (one of my favorite things -- I love to shop!).

My girls will wear shorts and t-shirts. DH will wear shorts and t-shirts. On our last trip, I wore khaki shorts and a white shirt every day (made it really easy to pack/mix and match my wardrobe, LOL). But it does get really hot in July! I'm thinking this time about taking some casual skirts instead -- Old Navy has some really cute knee-length skirts right now that have a gathered, elastic waistband and ruffle at the bottom. The fabric is a light cotton and they look really comfortable and cute. I'm wondering if skirts would be cooler and breathe better than the shorts did.

On our last trip, I saw a lot of people wearing cute skirts and sundresses. What are your thoughts? I realize that, obviously, wearing a skirt means being careful about how/where you sit, but I can manage that.

So what do you take for YOU to wear?

That way you don't stick on seats and in a way it keep me cooler.

I actually wear shorts and it's the only time I ever do. (I don't wear shorts at home in the summer, mostly I wear the skirts you were talking about.) I think shorts are good because it's a little amount of clothing. Skirts MIGHT be uncomfortable beacuse your thighs might rub together, especially if it's so hot AND think about getting in and out of ride vehicles...ones that you really have to step down into or step up out of, like Test Track. I don't want to have to be constantly thinking about pullling a Britney.

As far as tops with my shorts, I have about 87 Old Navy ribbed tank tops in all different colors and that ALL I wear. I just find the color that matches the shorts I'm wearing that day and there's my outfit!

Examples:

Yello Tank...


White Tank...


Brown Tank...


Dark Blue Tank...



I could go on and on!! Seriously...one in every color...

Just booked!

I just booked our July trip with the 4/3 deal, staying at CSR from 7/22 to 7/29!

My DW and I had been talking about celebrating our anniversary (8th!) with a trip to visit Mickey. We've been going back and forth about the exact dates, but with the clock ticking on the 4/3 deal, we decided to make the call this morning. This will be our first time flying together and using Magical Express, as well as our first time on property outside of Fort Wilderness.

So what do you take for YOU to wear?
I wear a bathing suit daily under a light cotton dress. This way if a breeze comes Im not flashing anyone!

I find that the dress is so much more cozy. Pants make me feel like I am suffocating, I get flub rub from the shorts only... but walking in the dress/skirts...Im fine

Hi! I just booked too -- CBR from 7/7 - 7/14

I'm a little nervous because usually we have been going in Dec. or Jan. -- haven't been in July since I was a little one. Now I have little ones of my own DD (6) and DS (4), and work around school schedules and a DH who is very reluctant to have EVERYTHING all planned out.

My main plan is to go to parks early, CBR for afternoon pool and naps, and parks late. No dining plans this time -- we've been there, done that with all the character meals on previous trips. Plus we have plenty of Visa reward points to use for meals.

I just hope the crowds are too bad
