Just thinking about that right now, when I have some small stomach flu bug, is making me cringe. It was hard for me to hold it all in for five minutes while trying to maneuver through the swarms of little kids at my school's football game last night, let alone waiting 45 minutes.

I guess it depends on what bathroom you use/what area.
We've been to MK twice on Christmas Day and never waited 45 minutes to use the restroom.

Last Oct at Epcot I waited that long on a Saturday during F&W, at the American Pav. Could not beleive it! Some women started going in the mens room at one point. The lines were very long at Morroco and UK as well.

That's probably a good time to really study a theme park map and find a bathroom that's way off the beaten path.

Good luck!

Like Hidden Mickeys? Is there an app for that?

Thank you I really needed the laugh!

We've been there Christmas week, NYE, Easter, mid summer, Halloween, various parties and never ever had to wait very long for a bathroom.

I don't know if this is always true, but Friday night, during F&W, I went into a restroom that was empty. It was in the building right behind the Cool Station near the fountain. Once you pass the building, you take a quick right. Go into the building and the restroom is on the right. I was the only one there at 6pm on a Friday night when the park was very crowded.

The restroom by the American Adventure is very small. I'm sure even if there was a line by Morocco, it would move much faster.

Yes - and the one by Canada near the old McDonalds is only 2 stalls IIRC! We walk past that one as well to larger one by the UK pavilion !!

We visit Christmas through New Years Day every year and never waited in long bathroom lines. Hoping this year is no different !

Worst bathroom in all of WDW!!!! Another one I hate s a liberty tree tavern.

I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 minutes, but I avoid the bad ones.
