    Trip planned 1st week in Oct w/6 & 3 year old. Oldest has issues w/using bathroom frequently & cannot hold it 4 any length of time. My concern is the lines at the bathrooms. If she is forced to wait 2 long afraid she will have accident. Any sugg

    I can't speak for all guests, Amber, but I know that if I were in line for the restroom and I saw a young child doing to dreaded potty dance I'd happily let him or her go ahead of me.  My suggestion would be to try to circumvent the problem from happening in the first place by making sure to take your six year-old to the restroom at every opportunity, preferably long before he or she complains of needing to go.  If you do find yourself in a predicament with a lengthy line in the restroom, do politely ask the other guests if your child may skip to the front of the line in order to avoid an accident.  Lastly, you might consider dressing your child each day in large-sized pull-up training pants just in case.  There are also lockers in the theme parks where you can store a change of clothes should you need it.  Better to be safe than sorry!  Good luck.
