We frogs naturally love water, so you know we're all about staying hydrated. So when we head down to the Sunshine State to visit Walt Disney World, we try our best to beat the heat. Our number one piece of advice is always to drink lots of water, and thankfully Disney has lots of easy (and mostly free!) ways to fill up. So let's dive into everything about water at Disney World!
You can ask for a free cup of water at any quick-service and table-service restaurant. This is also a tip we use to save some money while dining at Disney. For all quick-service restaurants, you can ask for a cup of water even when you're not dining there. We always do this regularly throughout the day to keep hydrated. Note that the cups will be a small size, but you can usually ask for two if needed.
One of our favorites is Docking Bay 7 in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge because they have a water station inside so you can easily refill. While nearly all quick-service restaurants and kiosks offer free cups of water, some are easier to access than others when only wanting to grab water. Sometimes they even have a tray of water cups ready to go! Here are our top froggy locations for quickly getting free cups of water on the go:
Note that festival booths typically do not have free water cups available, so you would need to go to the nearest quick-service restaurant or water refill station.
Disney's Hollywood Studios
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Another convenient way to get water at Disney is with water bottle refill stations. Easily fill up your water bottle with one of the many hydration stations located throughout Disney World. Typically located near restrooms, the refill stations make it so easy. Simply place the bottle and the sensor automatically starts. (It's so much better than filling up everyone's bottles at an awkward angle with regular drinking fountains!) Here's a list of water refill stations to get you started — we'll update as we find more:

How to Purchase Bottled Beverages at Disney World
Bottled beverages are also available for purchase throughout Disney World. Bottled waters are typically $3.50 each. Bottled soda is typically $5, offering Coca-Cola products such as Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite. These are available in a variety of merchandise shops, vending carts and kiosks. While we find that bottled water can be a bit pricey if you're buying several for a whole family, it can be a good option in a bind.
Free Drink Samples at Club Cool
Though we still maintain water is the best way to stay hydrated, it can be nice to have other refreshing beverages. Did you know you can try samples of Coca-Cola flavors from around the world for FREE? Club Cool at EPCOT offers up a variety of flavors to enjoy at no extra cost. Located next to Creations Shop, taste-test flavors and shop for some Coca-Cola beverages and merchandise. We love stopping here to start our visit. Anyone up for the Beverly?
