    And it seems so long when you walk to morrocco only to be told that someone is going back to the hotel once you get there for you to turn around and go to Mexico is a very angry walk...

    Yes, I actually knew that. :D From the Boardwalk Inn's parking lot closest to the main road, once around the WS back to the parking lot is three miles. Nice exercise!!!

    Many folks walk the WS for the exercise alone. When you start doing it on a regular basis you see the regulars. They (we) are the ones who keep to the lagoon side and march right along. :D :D

    i always come out even weight at WDW, i don't eat that much because it's usually hot and the walking compensates i guess. I still don't get these people that go around the WS in high heels :unsure:

    We did two trips around the WS today. We did sit and people watch at the end of our last time around. The shoes always amaze us. Not only were there high heels to be seen today, but high heeled boots! LOL. It's not that cold, honest!!

    There was a woman there who had pants on that were so tight she could really put one foot in front of the other. She had to do this weird walk with her hips kind of moving her feet to the sides. I can't imagine wearing anything as tight as she had on. If she had tried to take a true stride she'd have ripped the crotch right out of those pants. Amazing. :lol:

    I saw some really bizarre shoes this past trip. First of all it was freezing & I saw flip flops like you wouldn't believe. My tootsies would have frozen! And the skinny stilleto heels. Why? I mean seriously, why on earth to a theme park? Who are you trying to impress? And while on the subject, wtf is up with furry boots & shorts? Who invented this most retarded look?? I saw a ton of that going on & giggled every time I did. I couldn't help it.

    now i can walk in high heeled boots, i think it's the better foot support they offer.

    I'm confused by the people who wear a sweatshirt and shorts?! It just doesn't make sense.
