Bathroom Blog Part III: Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Share This!

This week I’ll continue my series on my favorite and not so favorite bathrooms around Walt Disney World.  If you missed my previous entries please check them out here: Part I: Magic Kingdom and Part II: Epcot


Pixar Place – The new ones on Pixar Place are a must before getting into the insanely long Toy Story Mania queue.  They are large, conveniently located, and I’ve yet to see them be dirty.

Streets of America near Lights, Motor, Action! – On my last trip I discovered the one right next to Lights, Motor, Action!  I’ve never seen the show (shows are generally not my thing with some exceptions) so I never really had cause to wander over this way.  But after the presentation given by Imagineers on the 20th anniversary of the park it was the closets loo available.  It is massive!  I’m not sure what it’s like immediately before or after the stunt show, but it was practically empty when I visited.  I’ll have to remember it when I see the Osborne Lights next month.

Near Muppet Vision 3-D – Since this attraction is a must see for me when I tour DHS, I usually hit this bathroom.  I’ve never had a cleanliness problem here and it’s pretty sizable.  If I go before the show I can stroll through the preshow area and take in all of the sight gags and a nice, relaxed pace.  Or maybe it’s just the sight and sound of the fountain nearby that makes me have the urge every time I’m in this area…

Not so Favorites:

Near Rockin’ Roller Coaster – I don’t know what it is about this location, but these are always gross.  Last time I was there the smell was enough to make you ill.  It’s also too small for such a busy area between the two most popular attractions in the park.

On the Fence:

Hollywood Hills Theater – It’s a pain when you have to go here.  Its always crowded throughout the theater so navigating your way to the lady’s room is a chore and once you get there it’s crowded there too.  On the other hand, I have to give credit to the custodial CMs who seem to keep up with the onslaught of visitors at show times.  Luckily, I don’t make a point of seeing the show on every visit so I don’t have to deal with this one very often.

Sunset Boulevard – This one  is always busy with the quick service eateries across the way, shops nearby, and two headliner attractions just down the road.  It’s not terribly large for handling the crowds so it seems to always be backed up.  The one closer to Tower of Terror is usually less crowded even though they are only a few hundred feet from each other.  On the bright side, there are usually Citizens of Hollywood actors performing nearby so my friends are entertained while they wait for me.

Well I think that sums it up for Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  I hope I could shed some light on a very important topic!  What are your favorites in this park?

Next week I’ll take a break from the bathrooms to discuss my upcoming trip…

    There are bathrooms by the animation studio, as you approach the studio they are on your left side. These are never crowded, always clean and another bonus, the water fountains there have the coldest water, very refreshing if you need to refill a water bottle.

      oh great thanks for the tip! I’ll check that one out next time.

  • I agree about the Coaster bathrooms. Seems everyone uses them!

    I also like the restrooms at Brown Derby. They are available to the public and not on the park map!

    • Totally agree w/ the Brown Derby. My personal least favorite is the ToT restrooms.

        ohhhh I’ll have to try the one at the Brown Derby. Its always good to have a secret spot.

        I’ve never had too much trouble with the ones by ToT. Perhaps its a different situation for the women’s vs men’s rooms?

  • Well of course these bathrooms are the most likey to be yucky! They are near ToT and RnR, some people get sick. Also people who wait around while members of their party go on these attractions will use them so they are likey busier and folks with small children.

    My boyfriend and I went to the Star Wars weekend last year at Hollywood Studios. You didn’t mention the one directly across from the Star Tours attraction. I seem to recall that it was pretty nice. It was practically the only one I used all weekend since we were basically “glued” to that section for the Star Wars events.
