In a heartbeat. Hell, I would do it now - let my 8 year old son wait in a gift shop. It all depends on the kids maturity, I guess, but I would assume at 12 the majority of kids could handle waiting in a gift shop for 20-30 minutes.

I, for one, do not like to see any boy in the women's restroom beyond about 5 years (even some that age bother me). That's why they make companion restrooms if there is a need to bring the opposite sex child in with them, right?? I sure would be *very* uncomfortable if there was a 10 yr up boy in there
But it doesn't matter what you think

It's called any thing is ok as long as my needs are met.
Well, I'd hesitate to bring my 37 yo into the ladies room but I'm torn about my 29 yo. He is engaged and getting married in March. Do you think I could risk letting him into the men's room?
wanted to add, I'm just joking, of course.

I could see some of this paranoia about little boys looking into cracks in the stalls at some malls or places...but most of the bathrooms I used at WDW were huge. Standing in the entrance way you would practically have to be superman to see into those stalls!

So, to the pp who lets her 5 year old son use the mens room - are you saying that you are comfortable leaving your 5 year old child standing out in the crowds of WDW all alone? This thread is a little disturbing. The average 5, 6, 7, 8, and even 9 year old boy is not really interested in sex and is not trying to get a look at teenager girls through the crack of a stall door.

This thread is pretty funny, all in all. We have the people who won't leave a teenager alone in a public gift shop and the people leaving kindergardeners alone in the park. The huge differences are astounding.

Let me just say that my mom got upset with me for going to Epcot alone at night and I am over 25!

I don't have any kids myself yet, but I wouldn't leave a 12 year old alone just because I know I'd never forgive myself if something happened to him/her. With daughters, I'd probably worry about them forever (like my mom worries about me), but I could probably leave my sons alone around age 15-16, but I still wouldn't leave them for long.

This thread now has a Pee Wee Herman "I know you are, but what am I?" feel to it. I'm out before someone says the "secret word of the day" .

It's a do what's right for your family type of thing. I won't judge what other families allow because I don't know the correct thing for anyone else.

just for everyones info
I emailed Disney World & asked about bringing my boys with me into the bathroom - my boys are non-verbal austic
Disney replied that boys age 10 & over are not allowed in the women's restrooms - please use the companion bathrooms if your child is of the other sex & over 9

a 10 year should be able to go into a bathroom my themself - if not please bring someone with you to deal with it or use the companion

I think it's fine.. But you have to judge if you/her are ok with that..

As for the bathrooms.. I have no problems with boys in women's bathrooms. For the most park they go the bathroom, wash and then go wait upfront for mom..
I get more privacy at a disney bathroom then I do at home..
My DD is having BAD separation issues and freaks out every time I walk out of her line of view..

I've also seen them post a lookout at the door to make sure no men enter while they are there.
a number of years ago, I was on line to use the women's room at a broadway show. The line was soooo long and the show was going to start soon.

The ppl from the theatre moved half of the women over to the mens room, so we could share. Women used the stalls, while the men were peeing the urinals! Didn't bother me one bit...I had to go!

Absolutely

ETA As you can see DS is 9 now and alive and well! I've let him go many places on his own, he is incredibly independent. He's been riding his bike all over the neighborhood by himself since he was 5 also. I let him go out and play and have fun and he always seem to make it back for dinner!

This is the most disturbing thing I have read in the entire thread!

Someone seems to have severe separation/trusting/anxiety issues, and is already passing them down to their daughter

Sure hope someone helps you with these feelings before you do have children of your own.
