    Any suggestions for how to deal with potty issues when in line for an attraction? Of course, we will try to visit the bathroom before we get on liine but i know the issue will come up with 6 kids! Will they allow you to leave and return if someone needs?

    Hi Jodi!

    We've had this issue, and we only have 2 children that are currently potty-trained!  I couldn't imagine with 6! 

    Absolutely take everyone to the bathroom before an attraction.  We are also keenly aware of the 'potty signs' when we are out and about because with all the distraction, potty trips often get pushed to the back of little one's minds. 

    When we've had an issue while in an attraction's queue, one of us will step out of line and take the child to the restroom and then come back and get back in line.  Getting out of line and returning can sometimes be challenging, but I've found, more often than not, other parents understand the 'potty emergency' and are very accommodating. 

    If the lines aren't very long, then I would go ahead and either take everyone out of queue, or work it so that each parent rides with a group of children. 

    Have a magical vacation!
