Y’all, we promise not to share too many photos taken inside restrooms, but we had to show you this. One of the larger restrooms in the Magic Kingdom, the one in Tomorrowland next to Mickey’s Star Traders, has added vacant/occupied flags on the doors to make it easier to assess which stalls are available.
With just a glance, you can see how many stalls are available and where they are. Sometimes if you’re a pregnant person, or a parent with a preschooler, or have tangled with one too many Venti lattes, you want that availability information as quickly as possible.
Here’s the flag activating with a satisfying snap:
It’s the dorkiest little thing, but sometimes, if you add up enough nice dorky little things, it can tip the balance from meh vacation to good vacation or from good vacation to great vacation in ways you can’t even articulate. So kudos to Disney for making this tiny corner of the theme park experience a wee bit better.
P.S. These photos were taken in the women’s restroom. We assume that similar things are happening on the men’s side, but we’d love some verification if you’re inclined to clue us in.
