    We are travelling to WDW with 3 children in August - the eldest has a bladder condition. He needs very frequent access to toilets, which makes queuing a nightmare! In the uk we have used ride exit passes in theme parks - do they issue these in WDW?

    Hi Natalie! August can be a busy month in the parks especially during the first two weeks. Once schools are in session the lines will thin out making it easier to enjoy the attractions. It is hard to keep three children happy in a long line so I understand your desire to make this easier for your oldest.

    The first thing you need to do is to get a map of each park when you check into your resort. Have a highlighter or a marker and mark where all the restrooms are in each. Study the map and become familiar with it so you have a sense of direction once you arrive on a given day.

    Please stop in at each park's Guest Relations when you arrive. Explain your situation and they will possibly give you a Guest Assistance Card. This is not a front of the line pass but it does offer you alternative waiting areas and the ability to come and go if you need to break for a bathroom. We have had to leave lines ourselves for the sudden urges from our grandchildren and often the cast members will assist you so you don't have to start the wait all over again. However, we have had some that have not been so accommodating too so a Guest Assistance Card would be helpful.

    Please understand that many attractions have queue areas that make it almost impossible to get back to your spot once you have left it. They are narrow and long and winding and trying to excuse yourselves to move ahead is not always a fun experience. Other guests will not understand the situation so please talk with the cast member on duty to ask for the best way to leave and return.

    My other suggestion is to bring along a change of clothes for your son. Sometimes there is so much happening that children forget that they need to go until they simply go!  Having a change will give you the insurance against the unpredicted accident and avoid issues for your son.
