Staying hydrated at a Disney Park is a necessity, especially if you’re visiting one of the Orlando locations in the middle of summer. But at approximately $3.50 a pop for a bottle of water, it’s likely to leave your wallet feeling particularly parched.
Fortunately, there are numerous water fountains scattered around the park, so you can always bring a reusable water bottle with you and refill as you move your way around the happiest place on earth – or, as Reader’s Digest points out you can grab a cup of free iced water using this little known secret.
93 degrees today at Walt Disney World! Don't forget that you can get free glasses of ice water at every quick service location!

According to the book Walt Disney World Hacks, all counter-service restaurants will give you a cup of free water – with, or without ice – for free. All you need to do is ask!
As Reader’s Digest reports, park visitors simply need to ask the cashier for some water. You will be issued with a receipt to take over to the food pick-up counter where one of the Cast Members will give you a free cup of water!
