    Hi :)

    Last time we were there the water tasted awful and we had to get bottled water from the parks, is it still the same? Do people have bottled water delivered or do you just buy it from a market?

    We even buy small bottles of water to keep in the bathroom to rinse our teeth after brushing

    One thing many people do is carry little single serving packets of powedered drink mix to add to the fountain water so it masks the taste. :yes:

    Personally, I hate the taste of Dasani which is the water sold in the parks. They now offer Smart Water, but that is not available everywhere and is stupidly expensive.

    I always carry my own into the parks. Buy it by the case in Publix, or wherever. Zephyrhills sells a 3 litre bottle for $1.29.

    Ugh. Isn't that the most disgusting stuff? :( It's in the majority of the airports too. :( I have to hunt for water that isn't Dasani.

    I'm considering getting a note from my Doc to allow me to carry my own! :yes:

    I actually like Dasani. I do not care for Zephyrllis at all. I don't like Evian either. Fiji water is the BEST though.

    I'm ok with the water in FL. My Dh always gets sick though. He has to use bottled water to make his coffee.

    I can't drink the water in FL either . I like Dasani water esp. the Raspberry flavour, but they only sell it at sunshine Seasons in Epcot . Before I leave the park, I buy four bottles .
    Sister Tink , I carry the Crystal Light single packets for plain bottled water .

    The thing I don't like about Dasani, and evian to SOME extent, is the smoothness of it. There's nothing sharp or refreshing about it to me at all. The smart water tastes better but as Tink says is more expensive

    Same here with the taste. It actually makes me recoil a bit. :( I like spring water for the most part. There is one bottled water called Metro Mint. That I really like, but it's hard to find.

    If you'll have a car or a grocery stop on your way to your resort, it is more economical to purchase a case of bottled water for your room. You can take it into the parks, but more than one bottle per person can be heavy and cumbersome. I usually take one bottle in with me and purchase others as needed.

    There also are two grocery delivery services that service the WDW resorts. One is gardengrocer.com, the other is wegoshop.com. They operate a bit differently, so you'll need to check out their websites to see if using one is feasible for you. We considered it last December, but decided we didn't need enough to make it worthwhile.

    How can you taste the difference between different types of water??
    I dont mind dasani or evian or volvic or anything, water is my 2nd favourite drink, first being green tea.

    I'd simply reply, how can you NOT!!!!!

    I'd say tea/water joint equal for me but I drink a lot more water than tea.
