Anyone who has traveled with me knows that I have a very small bladder. So small, in fact, that some of my favorite traveling companions call me Tinkerbell (get it?). Needless to say I need to “powder my nose” a lot even when I’m touring Disney theme parks. My need to use the loo so often has made me something of an expert on Disney’s bathroom offerings. Do I need a park map to tell me where the nearest lady’s room is? Never. Give me any attraction and I can tell you the closest one. I go so often that when I can’t join my usual crew in the parks they text me pictures of entrances to restrooms around the parks and I can identify them without a problem. Hey, everyone’s got to have a special talent… this just happens to be mine.
So I’ve decided to make the best of the situation and write about some of my favorite and not so favorite rest rooms throughout Walt Disney World. Here at the Unofficial Guide we like to be prepared for all aspects of a WDW vacation so bathrooms shouldn’t be overlooked! Everyone’s got to go so why not know which bathrooms are best? First, I’ll cover the four main parks with an entry for each and we’ll see where I go from there. So without further ado let’s start with the Magic Kingdom:
Main Street near Town Hall – I like this one because its the first stop after arriving to the park. I always have to make a pit stop after making the trip into MK and the morning coffee never helps this situation. Its huge so there is never a queue, and usually well kept. An added bonus is that there are plenty of shady spots for my friends to wait or they can dash into Town Hall or the Emporium until my business is done.
Tomorrowland near Space Mountain – I’m not sure what it is but I always have to go after the very bumpy Space Mountain. I was very worried it would disappear with the old Skyway building. But, alas, my fears have been put to rest and they are remodeling it.
Between Main Street and Tomorrowland near the Noodle Station – It doesn’t seem like a lot of people know this one exists so its always clean and quite and is an essential stop before settling in for Wishes.
Adventureland near Pirates – Conveniently located near the exit of Pirates makes stopping off here before the next attraction quick and easy.
Between Adventureland and Frontierland – This one’s not always the cleanest since its in a busy spot. You’re better of heading to Peco’s Bills or the ones near Pirates of the Caribbean.
Fantasyland near Peter Pan’s Flight: I like that they are labeled as Princes and Princesses (I’m a sucker for good theming), but they are very busy and often the custodial CMs can’t keep up.
Is it strange that I have so many favorites? So what are your favorite bathrooms? You know you have some.
Next week, in the spirit of baseball playoffs (Go Yankees!), football season, and whatever other sports you might enjoy, I’ll take a look at a great place to grab a beer and watch the big game…
