Walt Disney World/Diapers on Older Kids


There  are numerous internet messages about kids 5-even 14 wearing diapers due to long toilet waiting lines.  Is this really true from your observations. What is your assessment of waiting times?

Hi Bill,

Our experience totally goes against this. We have rarely experienced much of a wait if any for a bathroom. During peak crowd times there may be some wait for a small number of restrooms, but I just don't remember having significant wait times.

At times the wait for the most popular rides during peak seasons can be long - I've seen the wait for Soarin as long as 120 minutes, so that may be an issue for some kids.

Hope that helps!

As the author of Walt Disney World with Disabilities, I can answer most questions related to the parks and resorts at Walt Disney World. I can share in-depth information related to managing at Disney with health conditions, special needs, disabilities and handicaps.


I am the author of the guide book called Walt Disney World with Disabilities.

Our book is available through many websites such as, Barnes & Nobel, etc. It's also available around the world through many international sites.

I have over 20 years of experience as a frequent visitor to Disney. My wife and I have learned to thrive there while dealing with health conditions. I also did extensive research into how to manage well at Disney with a wide variety of health conditions that we don't personally deal with.
