    I am a mom traveling alone with my 5 yr old son. Are there family restrooms in the parks? I dont want him alone in a men's room but don't want women to be uncomfortable in a womens restroom.

    Hi there, Gina, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for bringing us your question. I hope I can set your mind at ease as you and your son explore the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Gina, I'm also the mom of one awesome little boy. He's nine (how did that happen, anyway?), and even now, I share your reluctance to let my son go into the men's room by himself, no matter where we are. You will absolutely find companion and family restrooms throughout the Theme Parks. There's even an interactive map on the Walt Disney World website that will help you locate all of the restrooms around the Parks, including a listing of companion facilities.

    Also, feel free to pop into the Baby Care Centers at each of the Theme Parks if your little guy needs to go. They're designed for families with small children, not strictly babies, so there's also a regular restroom in each one, complete with both adult and child-sized toilets. And Gina, please know that you are absolutely welcome to take your little boy into the ladies' restroom if you need to. As a mom myself, I'm sure no one would think twice about it.

    While you're making plans, be sure to check out Disney's great guide to planning for parents of little ones. It will help you find lots of fun things to do with your Mouseketeer!

    I hope this helps you have a magical vacation with your son, Gina. Please come see us again if you have any more questions. We're always here to help!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
