    What happens if your kiddo needs to use the bathroom while standing in line for a ride?

    Hi, Cheryl!

    We have a rule in my family - even now that my youngest daughter is 13. If Mommy has to go, we all have to go. Since I'm the one who seems to visit a restroom more frequently than anyone else in my family, there's a pretty sure bet that if they've followed me into the ladies' room, they're good to go.

    There is no policy at Walt Disney World to leave the queue and return to your spot once you've answered nature's call. A good plan to have - especially with little ones and newly minted potty trainers - is to "go before we go." If there is a long line at an attraction, you have to go potty before we go line up. If we have a FastPass+, we hit the bathroom before we hit the attraction. 

    I've heard people ask other guests if they'll save their space in line while they run a little one off to the restroom, and I some guests might be willing to accommodate you, but keep in mind that not all lines are easy in and out. I'm thinking specifically of the queue for Avatar Flight of Passage. It's not going to be easy to get back into some lines.

    If you are traveling with someone, it may not be as much of an issue. But the "go before you go" method is what has always worked out best for us.

    Good luck, Cheryl!
