I have heard that it is really bad feng shui to have the bed facing the bathroom door. My bed not only faces the bathroom door directly, but it is also in direct line with the toilet! I can feel this is really bad feng shui, can you please help me with some easy feng shui tips?

Yes, ideally your bed should not be aligned with any doors - be they bedroom doors, bathroom doors or closet doors.

First, be sure to apply the feng shui tips for a bed facing the door, or, more precisely, a bed in line with the bedroom door. After you have applied these feng shui tips to the best of your abilities, focus on neutralizing the potential negative energy in the bathroom.

Basically, you want to create an invisible (or visible!) division between the bathroom and the bedroom. Here are several easy ways to create this energetic division with good feng shui in mind:
