It doesn't bother me but my wife hates the water. She can't even drink the coke from the fountains.

they will give you free water with ice at pretty much any quick service/stand in the parks so instead of carrying around things just ask a cast member!

We brought powered drink crystals with us (ice tea, koolaid) to put into the water and found it was fine. My kids didn't complain. (Mind you they never get to drink koolaid or icetea so it could have been that).

The water at the MK tastes so sulfurous it's like Satan himself took a bath in it, but...call me weird, feel free...I *love* the smell of the water when it comes out of the shower head. It's one of the smells that makes me think 'Disney!'

Oh...and I used to work a hot dog stand when I was a teenager. the fountain had tanks-one for syrups and one for carbonated water, and we'd hook them up so they'd mix when coming out of the taps. It's not tap water.

I really don't mind the tap water. It kind of reminds me of the beach. I dunno. I'm odd like that. I mean it's not bad, depending on where you go. At Shades of Green it's pretty bad. Especially with my thick hair in the shower.

We are not super keen on drinking tap water anywhere, unless it is filtered. Processed city water contains all kinds of yuckies. Do your water bottles have filters that can be bought as accessories?

It's worth having bottled water sent to your hotel room and carry them with you. On our last trip to Orlando in April, I thought the water seemed more "sulfurish" then it has in the past. It's absolutely disgusting.

We can't drink it, but we know we may be spoiled since our tap water here in maine is pretty much poland spring. The zepher hills bottled water we thought tasted funny too, had to get ps or dasani?

The water is fine....then again I grew up drinking out of a hose when I was outside so I doubt much would bother me. The water at the CS stations is filtered and for the most part has little taste. Like some have suggested bring those Crystal Light things to "help with the taste".
