    Love to conveniently refill our water bottles at drinking fountains around the parks. Are they working or closed because of the pandemic? Hydration based anxiety, so hoping we don't have to wait in line at table service or trek to the refill stations

    Hi Traci!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing us your question about hydration refill stations at Walt Disney World! As we tend to visit in August, where the sun is decidedly warm, and the heat can be quite overwhelming, remaining hydrated is key to enjoying our time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Currently, there are several hydration refill stations located throughout the parks and resorts. Having recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort, I can report that most of the water refill stations were functioning. The sole caveat to this is the refill station in Magic Kingdom Park. There is only one refill station in Magic Kingdom, at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe. It has been closed since the pandemic, as it is located within a high traffic area, and in keeping with social distancing rules. There is no date of when it will return at this time. If you do need to refill your water bottle, there are several water fountains located throughout the parks and resorts, and you are welcome to utilize those at your convenience.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
