Question I need tips for toddler afraid of auto flush

1st: Are there any toilets left at Disney that don't have autoflush?

My child just turned 3, & is potty trained, but he's terrified of that kind of potty. Any tips? Help! One bad flush did it now he wants to wait til we r home.

Just take a pad of post-it's and put one over the sensor on the toilet when your little one is going potty.

Tried that and the bag-he's still afraid.

I thought the pottys at the back entrance to Epcot r hand flush. Can't remember if the one behind pirates is or not.

I've gone through this with my other kids, but this one would rather wait til he bursts than go on that potty. I thought about rigging a magical flush stopper-block the sensor and put a tap light on it or something. I'm hoping someone else has a better plan that worked well.

I will bring post its. Ty for the suggestion. We leave on Monday, & I know it's going to b an issue.

Just got back on Tuesday and I noticed the restrooms shared by ABC Commisary and scifi dine in theater are manual flush.

I didn't bring anything to cover the sensor so I just took two squares of TP lightly wet (damp hands from sink) a small part of one end and pushed it against the wall covering the sensor. The water worked as a glue to keep the TP covering the sensor.

Pack some post it notes in your park bag, and place one over the sensor before Jr. sits. Although I've never had to do this, my cousin has. She says it works wonders!
