    I just returned from my 2nd trip to WDW this year and had a wonderful time even though it was hotter than hades. The only thing that was bad was the water. Disney has made one of those infamous business decisions to change the bottled water sold at WDW from Zephyhills spring water to Dasani purified water. The purified water is disgusting. Please let everyone know this so that maybe if we all complain enough they will bring back the spring water. We wound up going to the store and buying water to carry into the park. This wound up saving us money in the long run but we wound up running out of water during the day and was forced to drink tap water. Ugh!!!!

    Chaque un a son gout (to each his own). I happen to love Dasani!

    I live in a city along the Ohio River that gets its drinking water supply from....well...the Ohio River.........
    Now...the river is beautiful.....but I certainly can't drink it.....
    So....spring water is an absolute essential in our lives.....

    I believe that WDW switched from spring water to Dasani because it is a Coke product....Disney has a contract with Coke...so hencefoth....Dasani water.

    I myself....won't drink "purified water"....just my opinion.....if you are "picky" about your drinking water...(we are)....bring your own spring water...

    I've never had any complaints with the bottled water. Just stay away from the tap water - ugh!

    What's so bad about tap water? At least where I live, it's good, and cheaper to! I'm not too picky in that respect, so I think this is the way to go. Water is water.

    Zephyrhills water taste salty to me and makes me even thirstier. I drink Dansani water and love it as it has no taste, just thirst quenching.

    For starters it has a strong odor, kind of a sulfur smell. The taste is so strong that you can taste it in the fountain drinks and coffee. I washed clothes while we were at CBR and put a shirt away when we got home. I got it out a few months later and it still reeked of Disney water!!!

    I can drink tap water at home, but I'd be hard pressed to drink tap water at the World!!! JMO

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I have no problems with tap water in general, but I have never liked Florida tap water.

    When I was on the college program at Disney I had to go buy a water filter. I couldnt' stand the water in Disney either. I had no idea they changed there bottle water supplier. I'll miss Zephyhills, it was good. But I always did wonder why they had never switched over to Dasani because of their coke contract. I'm sad now that Zephyhills is gone.....brings back memories of those hot days at the parks :(
