It’s pretty busy around here today so I’ve got a quick and dirty one for you. This post is inspired by the Happiest Potties on Earth hosted at MousePlanet where they document not only where each restroom is in Disneyland but also rate amenities and typical cleanliness!
I don’t really have a potty obsession, but I do happen to have a favorite bathroom at Hong Kong Disneyland. As you walk down Main Street if you take a right turn just past the Corner Cafe there is a secret entrance to Tomorrowland via the lavatory for the Starliner Diner. Not only does this water closet magically transport you from Main Street to Tomorrowland, but it has possibly the coolest restroom signs anywhere. Check it out and it might be your favorite loo too!
Apologies to those who are a little squeamish about the business end of our digestive tracks but another unique feature of the restroom is a mainland style squatter toilet. It’s a bit of a novelty for most westerners which is why I’ve decided to share it. I’d warn you to look away if you are sensitive but this post is really too short for that. Don’t worry – there is only one of these next to a whole bank of western style sitters (note that I said sitter as in s-i-t “sit” there). I took this shot right at park opening so it should be clean!

They look clean and sanitary enough. What I wouldn’t want to see before my breakfast is a picture of a French provincial cafe’s squat toilet. (Let your imagination go wild.)
This is a very clean toilet but what would you expect from Disney?! Enjoyed (?) a squatter in a McDonalds while in France. Not bad but not as clean. A unique experience to say the least.
I didn’t know to expect one in France. Was it in Paris or in a smaller town?
Nothing to be squeamish about here. It looks pretty clean to me.
Nice signs! Those kinds of toilet bowls are very common in Indonesia. If you’re not used to it, you’d have difficulty relieving yourself as the Western style bowls (that we also use here in the Philippines) are not common.
Love the cool toilet signs!
Haha! It’s all in the details, right? I like that they even have the toilets according to the theme.
Other than for a short stretch around 10 years ago, Disney is usually pretty good with the details.
The signs are totally cool! When my daughter first saw the squat toilets in Japan last year, she turned to me and asked “What am I supposed to do?” You can’t expect them all to be western style or those fancy Japanese kinds.
Yes, but the fancy Japanese ones are not quite as self explanatory!
That is hysterical – I love the signs!!
Thanks for linking up! Have a wonderful weekend!
I like the doorway signs – just wouldn’t want to be handicapped in these bathrooms.
I like how from the outside it looks futuristic, but on the inside it’s just a hole in the ground!
If I could convince my wife to wear a dress and a space helmet at the same time, we would be in business. Maybe for Mother’s Day…
Interesting that there’s only one of these, as twenty years ago when I was in Japan for an exended period of time, it was the other way round. That’s globalisation, I guess!
No squeamishness here – I love potty posts! They always make me laugh!
