We always have the nachos too! They go well with a Last Mango In Paris That and a side order of black beans and we're good. YUM.

Can someone tell me if the water at most restaurants in US, IOA and CW is filtered. I always order water since I don't like soda, but don't like the taste of Florida water.

Am I the only one who doesn't like FL water????? I've been told (and I can tell) the water that is dispensed from the soda machines at DW is filtered. Just wondering...

I'm not a big fan of it either, but I have no idea if it is filtered or not.

When you get free water, it generally comes from the soda machine. Is there a filter in those machines?

Glad we are able to help here! If we can make your vacation even a bit more enjoyable, it is well worth it!

I live in Miami, Florida. The tap water here is much different from Orlando's. You can actually drink it in Miami lol. Every time we go to Orlando, we have to buy water bottles wherever we go. I don't know if it's filtered anywhere in IOA/US, but it taste like Orlando water still.... soooo yeah. What we normally do is buy the meal deal tickets and, take a few 1 liter water bottles to the park in my bag!

Thanks Carlos. Bottled water will probably be the way I go.

We just switched from HRH to PBH and I'm really excited! Can someone give me an idea of what Sal's has in the way of a quick breakfast?

I bought a Brita water bottle to take with me. The water where I work tastes awful, but with the filter in the water bottle, it tastes fine. I think you can get them at Walmart or Target for around $8.

I like that idea, that way you can carry a couple of them, they don't take up much room and they taste good. My only problem with them is the amount of colour in them!!
