    If you can, bring a re-fillable water bottle with you and stop by one of the Hess stations the next time you're in the world. You can get almost a gallon of water for $1.99! OR, I found a gallon of water at the Boardwalk for $2.49 hidden on the bottom shelf in the convenience store. Much better than $2.50 per regular size bottle!!

    I know I know, you can get tap water for free at the CS places... this just was a pleasant budget surprise!!

    My water trick for disney is the soda fountain where people refill their mugs. The water that is dispensed is filtered and amazingly cool.

    When my husband brings his mug to refill with soda, I am always refilling my water bottle (that I lug from home).

    We always just pack a couple of pitchers in our suitcase and just melt the ice from the ice machines. Free filtered water at disney that we drink in the room or fill our water bottle that we take to the parks.

    we fill our camel backs with ice from the machine and ozonated water, it stays nice and cold and feels very refreshing going down:cool1:

    I just wanted to say that the last time I was in Disney in September, we stopped at a few of the water fountains and some of them are downright nasty! I specifically remember the one in HS near the restrooms by the great movie ride being absolutely terrible. Next time Im going to get a cup of ice and wait for it to melt! Thanks for the tip.

    The Hess Express stations are one of WDW's best-kept secrets -- probably becuase even though they are on Disney property, they do their own pricing, etc. (about the only Disney "influence" I've seen, there is that the soft drinks are only those of the Coca-Cola Co.).

    Even the carry-out pizza is priced "normal" -- and tasty, too!

    I just ask for a cup of ice water at snack and counter loactions with fountain drinks and then refill my bottle or mug. Free and Filter but donr have to carry it all day. Some places will even give pretty big cups.
