    My son has special needs and gets very upset in bathrooms that have auto flush. Are there any bathrooms in the park that don't have auto flush or is there a bathroom with only one stall so he doesn't here the other toilets flushing?

    Hi Diane,

    Loud toilets were a big deal when my son was younger too.  There are many restrooms that don't have "auto" flush in the parks, however, there are many stalls, so if your son gets flustered when hearing loud noises, these might still pose a problem.  My recommendation is to use the Family Restrooms located in each of the theme parks.  These restrooms contain only one toilet and sink and a private door that locks.  They are quite large, and you will be able to go in with him if necessary.  I used to bring along a post-it note to cover the automatic toilet mechanism so that my son wouldn't get frightened.  It worked like a charm!  The Family Restrooms are clearly marked on each of the theme parks maps, and there are several locations within each park.

    Have a wonderful trip!
