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.

I mentioned earlier that colorful tile patterns are one of the things I like in restrooms of WDW, but I realize now, as we go higher up the list, that interesting details, and unusual textures, that are just way different from a standard bathroom are another thing that I like, and there is no better place for making a good first impression for a restroom than by having an interesting door, unfortunately my photo of this one is blurry:

Lucky for me the interesting details don't stop at the door, for instance this light fixture is inside:

Restaurant Marekesh

Restaurant Marekesh - Restroom

The door that you see here is almost certainly the supply closet for the cast members that maintain this restroom, and you can see the placement of the light fixture. This is one of the smaller restrooms on my list and it can be a challenge to get an angle that shows the layout well, but let's see how I did.
so here's the entry doors inside, and that supply closet door again:
Restaurant Marekesh - Restroom

Note that in this view of the sink you can see that same supply closet door in the mirror.

This restroom is small enough that they went with the fold up version of the Baby Changing station:

Restaurant Marekesh - Restroom

This would be to the right of the sink on the same wall

and it looks like the only stall in here is a accessibility stall with its own sink as well.

and that's it for number 5, more to come.
