    Hi. I have WDW reservations for the second week in January. Where are the water refill stations in the park? Thanks for your help.

    Heigh-Ho Jennifer,

    Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! The Florida Sunshine can take its toll on you. Plus, Guests take thousands of steps every day meaning staying hydrated and fueled is crucial for a successful magical day. I am a huge water drinker and am pleased to see Walt Disney World catching on to the water refill hydration stations. While there are only but a few, of the water filling stations, Guests only need to know where to look because they are not found on any of the maps. I am happy to provide a list from my water-refilling adventures and I can not vouch for all but most were available for Guest usage, on my most recent visit. 

    Magic Kingdom
    Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe- inside (has been closed during COVID)

    Epcot Experience (former Odyssey building)- by restrooms
    Traveler’s Cafe- by restrooms (close to the entrance of World Showcase)
    Skyliner- by restroom (before entering Epcot at International Gateway)

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    Star Wars Galaxy Edge- by restrooms
    Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run- exit area of the ride
    Slinky Dog Dash- in the queue line
    Skyliner- by restroom (before entering Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom
    Avatar Flight of Passage- in the queue line
    Na’vi River Journey- in the queue line
    Expedition Everest- Legend of the Forbidden Mountain- in the queue line

    Most Walt Disney World quick-service restaurants provide free ICE-COLD water for Guests. Simply locate a Cast Member, at the front of the quick-service restaurant, and they will kindly guide you where to go. Guests can fill their water bottles with the cups of water provided. 

    I hope this has been helpful and if we can assist with any further curiouser and curiouser questions feel free to ask.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
