Potty training @ Oceaneer Club - "one-strike" rule?

Our 3.5-y.o. is "daytime" potty trained. While he still needs a nighttime diaper when sleeping, we have not had an accident during the day in months. He knows when he has to go, and he knows how to get his underpants and shorts on and off, and knows to flush and wash his hands.

My only concern is what if he has an accident in the Club due to unfamiliar surroundings or just sheer excitement? We will be taking him during open house to show him several times where the toilet is so he's familiar. We will also not be leaving him there for more than two hours at a time, and he's well able to hold it for much longer than that. But if he gets caught up in the high-level hoopla, I'm not sure if he has the wherewithal to "snap out of it" and get to the toilet when the need arises.

So if he does have an accident, what is the policy? Do we not get to bring him back for the rest of the day? The rest of the cruise?

I've looked at other threads, and it seems there are varying experiences with the CM's. Can anyone give me the status quo, please?

Thanks much!

This past January, who were almost 3 and almost 5 at the time. I was most concerned about my almost 3 year old, who is still only day trained. It was my almost 5 year old that DID have an accident. They have shorts for the kids if that happens (so it must happen on a regular basis) and we no one said anything about the incident (after the initially call to get her a change of clothes).

I am not sure what would happen if there were subsequent accidents or if it was my youngest.

My son was 3 last year in the Magic and had two accidents, one of them a horrible poop accident while in the kids club. They were very nice about it and we were not banned from coming back. The first time we just needed to get him in dry clothes and he was allowed to return immediately, the second time we didn't even know he'd had an accident until we came to get him and he was in the borrowed shorts (this was the poop accident). That night we had been to Palo and I wondered if they didn't interrupt us because of that. I stressed so badly about the potential for accidents because he was at the same stage of potty training as you describe and I just knew that being in an unfamiliar environment was a recipe for disaster but the CMs there were so nice about it. I also wondered if being concierge level had something to do with not getting the boot, but who knows!

If "consequence-free poopie pants" is a perk of Concierge, I may have to upgrade.

Last October our 3yo DD (actually she was about 10 days shy of 3, but they let her in the club) had an accident. They called us on the wave phone to let us know. We went and picked her up, they had changed her into dry clothes and had her wet ones bagged.

They were very nice about it. They never said anything about her not being allowed back in. They let her back in right after we changed her clothes in fact.

FYI, they don't take the dry clothes back...so don't worry about doing it. We tried, they told us to keep em.

Our 3 yr old was potty trained a month before our cruise. She had one poop accident in the kids club. They called us on the wave phone to change her. I asked if she could come back and was told it happens all the time. No problems sending her back.

Yes, they're very forgiving. They're also much less likely to call you if they know you have a spa appointment or are in Palo. They're really great!

Hi ,just a suggestion.send your child in and go into the bathroom and have them try to go. I have trained over 55 children(childcare provider for 29 yrs).Even when a child says they don;t have to go I always have them try while I wait because 9 out of 10 times they go.Then when they are excited and playing they don;t have an accident. I am surprized they do not ask you to bring a small bag with change of clothes when you drop off.

Oh, yes. We will be doing that.

He tends to poop overnight or early afternoon, so a few hours at the club in the morning after breakfast, pick him up for lunch, and another few hours back at the club after his afternoon "constitutional", and we should be good.

My 3yr old was potty trained, but I was not sure how she would do in a unfamiliar settings. The first day I went to the Lab with her. I wanted to show her their bathroom and make sure she would know what to do there, but I was not allowed to go in to the bathroom with her. CM said because there could be other kids in there, adults are not allowed to go in.
I was worried, I made sure my daughter used a bathroom before sending her there, and did not leave her there more than 2 hours.

My experience was a forgiving one as well. DS3 is potty trained, but within 15 minutes of being there had a small potty accident. They put him in new shorts and called us. The staff was very, very nice about it. I'm sure it happens all the time with the sheer excitement of the place.

Wink Great Feedback!!

To all who have replied to this thread, and the one who created it... Thank You!! I have been obsessing over this very subject. I have an upcoming trip still well over a year away and my newly turned 3 year old is currently training. I know he will be well trained by the time we go however.... those of us who've been around the potty training corner before with older children know even when well potty trained - excitement/distraction = accidents. Of course having them use the potty before taking them in the club to begin with is a no brainer, but you just never know when an accident will happen, hence the word "accident". Good to know that the CM's don't freak out about it, and that it does happen, and that your little one is still welcome.
