Bottled water at Disney is expensive. And although you can stop by any quick-service location that has fountain drinks and get a cup of ice water for free, these cups are often small, and they don’t come with lids. Carrying a personal water bottle is often more convenient and better for the environment as an added bonus.
Ask anyone who has tried to fill a water bottle at a conventional water fountain, and there’s two types of water fountains — one with enough pressure that you’re able to fill the water bottle with little mess, and those with so little water pressure that you’re struggling to find just the right angle to fill a water bottle up to maybe halfway. You never know which kind you will find until you’re there.
New water fountains now often come with both the drinking fountain and a water bottle filler. In Hollywood Studios, you’ll find these in Galaxy’s Edge near the restrooms and outside of the exit for Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run.
Personally, I’d love to see older water fountains replaced throughout the parks with these dual-purpose options.
What do you think? Do you bring your own refillable water bottle to the parks?
