    Hi!! We have an upcoming Disney trip. Our daughter (4) has many sensory preferences. My question is, does the art of animation-little mermaid room toilet automatically flush? Is there sensory safe bathrooms in the parks?

    Hi Sarah, and welcome to planDisney!

    Wow! It won’t be long before your arrival date, so now is a great time to plan and get all of your questions and concerns addressed before you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort! The Little Mermaid Standard Room at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is wonderfully themed, so I have no doubt you will love it. 

    The toilets in The Little Mermaid Standard Room are not automatic and have manual flush features. As far as the restrooms throughout Walt Disney World Resort, many use automatic flushing equipment, which may be loud (per the Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities). For more information, I recommend contacting Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 or email They can assist with more in-depth questions you may have about your daughter's needs. I hope this helps.

    Please come back and let us know if you have additional questions prior to your arrival.

    Have a magical day!
