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 wish I'd gotten a better photo of the signs pointing to this restroom, if memory serves right it is located across from the "store" entrance of "Everything Pop". Anyhow, just off the lobby of Pop Century is this small alcove set off from the main hall,

Once you step into it you turn 90 degrees:
the Door has this small window just so you can see if someone is exiting as you enter.

Once you step into the restroom you can see the layout pretty easily in one look, as there's nothing too odd about the layout of this restroom.

if you walk to the far end you can get a good look at the Baby changing Station:

Then turn back around and you are facing the door you entered through:

The large stall at the end or the restroom nearest near the baby change table is a handicapped acessable stall with a roll under sink right in the stall.

This restroom has a couple of things going for it, the bright colors go well with the other themes of the Pop Century resort:

but I also like the neat looking textures of the (possibly googie inspired?) grill work above the tiles and in the lighting fixtures:

I've been avoiding sharing too many "Mirror self portraits" in this top 10, but this one is practical as it gives you a better idea of both the light fixture details as well as the sink and mirror set up (albeit mostly via reflection).

and lastly a view of the area across from the sinks, as we are headed back to the exit (you can see the door in the shot too).

and that's number 4, more to come!
