    Hi Joel! Going to DL and DCA with just potty-trained DD2.5. What if she has to go in line? Can I get back to my family? Any tips for avoiding accidents? I know it's Cali and not WDW, but probably similar, right? I know you have little ones & understand

    Hi, Katie! When nature calls, you've gotta answer, right?! While I haven't been to Disneyland yet, I would expect there to be some similarities to the accommodations made for parents subject to unforeseen circumstances. Such as the potty. At Disney World when my son was recently potty trained, I'd keep mental tabs on him and adjust the amount of liquids he'd have. Prior to hopping into an attraction's queue, we'd hit the men's room together. There's a certain allure to the urinal for a 3 year old. Thankfully, nature never did call while in line. If it does (and I may get to test this in November with my youngest son,) I would have no concern with solving the need. If we still had a ways to go in line, we'd step out of the line and then return when finished. Hopefully the spouse could hold the place in line. People are very understanding of such a practice (which helps to extend the shelf life of kids by not making them wait the entire time in line.) If we were near the loading area, I'd brief a cast member on the situation. They may be able to provide a rider switch pass that lets you back in or they may just say to swing on back when you're set and they'll take care of you. Trust me: everyone will be happy you did something to avoid an accident!
