Yes, you read that correctly, I, Aunesty Janssen – Reikofski, am never ever going to go to Walt Disney World, Disneyland or any of the Universal theme parks again … with bottled water. You know what I am talking about. Lugging around bottles of water for each person in our group, refilling them at the water fountains… For years of our vacations I did this. I had no idea that every single one of the Disney and Universal theme parks gave guests FREE cups of ice water. Yes you read that right, FREE.
Last August, the best tip I have ever received about visiting the parks came from a stranger on the monorail. She saw our bottles of water (which were actually for Courtney’s bottles) and assumed we had brought our own water into the parks. She then offered up a bit of advice that I have been thankful to know (and share as often as possible) – She said, you know if you go to any quick service location you can get Free cups of ice water.
Wait, What?!?!?! Soooooo….
After getting off of the monorail, we headed on into Magic Kingdom and started on our adventure for the day, after about an hour, we were thirsty and in Tomorrowland, so we headed over to the Quick Service dining location in the middle of the land, and asked for three cups of ice water. AND… with a smile on his face, the cast member handed me THREE full size cups of ice water for FREE!
So since that HOT summer day in August, we have used this little tip on almost every visit to the parks, and I share it with everyone I see filling up water bottles at the drinking fountains. Because I am that strange lady who gives random unasked for advice at the parks to strangers….
So did you know this money and back saving tip? If not, are you as thrilled as I was to learn about it?What you didn’t really think I meant I was never going to go to Disney again? Oh no, I am too much of an addict to give up going to the parks…
