    Untill you have an 8 year old of your own, and are in charge of that childs safety and security, I dont really think you have the ability to have an opinion on the subject.

    First of all, re: being yourself...have you seen the outfits the cast members have to wear in Fantasyland? If that's not permission to do anything up to and including full drag, I don't know what is.

    Go, be yourselves, enjoy, and don't worry about what people think.

    Secondly, to all the str8 folks who are posting on here and encouraging him and his partner to be rock.

    Straight 20-something here, with no children and no plans to be anything other than a great aunt.

    As to the children in bathrooms issue, I will say that while I have been taken aback by seeing older children who (from outward appearance, at least) identify with the opposite gender of the bathroom they are using, it takes but a moment to remember that (a) these children are, or should be, their parent or guardian's treasure, and safety is a priority over all else and (b) there may be circumstances not immediately apparent that make the "right" bathroom the one they're in. The most outrageous bathroom behavior I can reasonably imagine occuring - children peeking under stalls or exposing themselves in the public areas of the bathroom - may be a consequence of the special circumstances relating to the child that the parent/guardian does their best to rein in, but of course, none of us can perfectly control the actions of another person, even - or perhaps especially - when those other individuals are children. A prior poster noted the special bathroom-related challenges faced by children with Aspergers. Any number of other special situations may exist. I aspire to keep in mind that normal is a relative standard and pause before I pass judgment.

    Now on to the OP: I want to chime in to encourage you and your partner to embrace the "Disney magic" and enjoy being yourselves. While Disney is wonderful in and of itself, I find that what I treasure most is not the magical moments themselves, but getting to share them with the people I love. Your fabulous partner is the person you fell in love with, so I hope you'll be able to share the Disney magic with him, and not some watered-down version of the great guy I'm sure he is.

    Have a wonderful time, make some great memories, and of course, report back after your trip!
