    We are going to Disney in a week and are thinking of buying reusable filter bottles. Should I fill up at the water fountains, or stand in line for the free water? I don't want to waste time in line but fear the filter may not be enough for fountain water

    Hi Rachel,

    I would not be concerned at all about the condition of the water in the water fountains at WDW (especially if you have an extra filter in your water bottle to go through).  I drink from the water fountains all the time and the reason for me standing in line at a Counter Service location instead of drinking from a fountain is so that I can get ICE water (the fountain water is not always cold enough).  Florida water does taste different from our water here though, so that is just something you have to get used to and it doesn't mean it's not safe to's perfectly fine.  Hope this helps! 

    Best wishes,
