Potty Training at the Parks

Potty Training at Disneyland can seem like a difficult task, and no doubt, it can be, but, we have some tips to hopefully help make the experience a little less stressful! Read on!

First, We recommend downloading the Disneyland App for all restroom locations (there is a restroom tab). It’s helpful to know where the nearest one is at all times. Try to get your little one to go before getting into a line (or every few rides). The restroom locations throughout the parks are not too far apart, so it’s pretty easy to find one close by to wherever you may be. If your kiddo prefers to go to the bathroom with a potty seat, you can always bring a fold-up one. Most restrooms have kid-size sinks – the highlight of one of our kiddo’s bathroom experience.

The Baby Care Centers (one in each park) have preschool-sized potties (without the automatic flush like all the other Disneyland restrooms.) Kids love these little toilets! We recently heard of the sticky note trick for the automatic flushers. Just bring sticky notes & put one over the sensor to avoid the flush going off.

There are family restrooms by most all restroom locations that come in handy when you need some extra helping hands from whoever you’re at the park with (or you want to keep your kids from crawling under the stalls HA)!

Family Restroom Locations in Disneyland:

  • Main Street First Aid & to the left of City Hall on Main Street
  • Aladdin’s Oasis in Adventureland
  • Fantasyland Theater Restrooms
  • Critter Country under the Hungry Bear Restaurant
  • Tomorrowland by Autopia

Family Restroom Locations in California Adventure:

  • Flik’s Fun Fair in A Bug’s Land
  • First Aid on Buena Vista Street
  • Flo’s V8 Cafe in Cars Land
  • Paradise Pier, across from The Little Mermaid ride
  • The Baby Care Center next to Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate

This is probably a pretty obvious tip, but we recommend bringing an extra pair (or pairs) of clothes. Potty training or not, extra clothes are almost always necessary for our kids! We also bring a large zip loc or “wet bag” for dirty clothes.

Whatever routine you have at home for potty training, try to stick to it the best you can. If you use a reward system, continue doing it if it works at the parks!

And lastly, it’s a good idea to have pull-ups or diapers on hand JUST in case things aren’t going too well in a new environment like Disneyland!  Just FYI: there are restrooms inside the Disney Junior Live show in California Adventure and in the Tiki Room waiting area. So convenient!
