Recently on episode 288 of the Walt Disney World News Today (WDWNT) podcast http://wdwnewstoday.com/blog/archives/1041 they did one of their "top ten" lists, one that had been long joked about, and now they were really doing it, well Disney fans have been joking about the fact that Disney's quality of experience extends even to their restrooms for a long time, (http://www.wdwtoday.com/wiki/index.php5?title=Humorous_nicknames_for_WDW_restrooms) there was even a web site on the Disneyland restrooms called "the Happiest potties on Earth" which is a take on Disneyland's self designation as "The Happiest place on Earth". I have long had a Flickr tag of TOTVKOTW that is an abbreviation for "Thrones Of The Vacation Kingdom Of The World" and in addition to the ones I have tagged I always seem to keep finding ones I have missed.

Well one of the things that the folks at Walt Disney World News Today always do when they make a top 10 list is they ask others to make thier own lists and send them in, so over the next several days I'll be posting my top 10 WDW restrooms as posts to my blog and will send this list to WDWNT.

  This is one I'm a little surprised no one at WDWNT had on their list as in addition to visiting this restoom at Mousefest 2008 I also was in this space for WDWNT:The Weekend back in 2010, I know a few folks had at least one restroom on their list at one of the Deluxe or DVC resorts where the restrooms have cloth hand towels, not for those who are my age we may remember a different kind of cloth hand towels, the one switched out by a laundry service and the towels were dispensed from a roll that fed out of the bottom of a dispenser box mounted on the wall and the used end disappeared back into the dispenser where once the roll was used up the roll would have to be switched out, but that's not what I'm talking about here, I'm talking about a basket of hand towels like the ones pictured below:

and this is a nice difference that gives a plussing to how I perceive the quality of these restrooms, there are also hand towels in the restrooms of the main part of the yacht club too but the decor there seemed dated in a different way than the decor here did, I'm not saying that this restroom did not seem like it could have fit right in in a different decade, but I would mean that in a more positive way about this one, the decor in this restroom also seems to lean towards style that is patriotic and that may make it a bit more timeless also. just look at the Eagle that is atop the frame of the mirror and the stars on the wallpaper below and judge for yourself:
