    Magic Kingdom has the worst drinking water ever

    Hey guys,

    I just recently went to Magic Kingdom for the first time this past August. When I went to try their drinking fountain, the water at all their fountains taste so gross and has a strong metal smell.

    When I ordered myself some sprite, the spite also has the taste of swamp water.

    Magic Kingdom just seem to have the most disgusting drinking out of the other 3 parks.

    You think that's bad?

    The water at Disneyland is a mixture of groundwater, water from Northern California and the Colorado River, and recycled waste water!

    Re: Magic Kingdom has the worst drinking water ever

    On my very recent trip to Florida, I wasn't always prepared with my favorite bottled beverage. They can be pretty costly in the parks. What costs about a dollar outside the parks, can be as much as $3 in the parks. I didn't mind the cost, as much as the fact that when I was at Sea World, I didn't like any of the varieties that they were selling.

    I believe that, they might do that to boost sales. But the Sprite tasted swampy too?? Maybe you just had that bad taste in your mouth.

    I agree that the water has an odd taste--not so much metallic as chloriney. I've always noticed this when in that park but I drink it anyway because it's always very cold. The problem seems endemic to that area of the resort because it's the same when I've drunk it at the MK resorts. At other parks, however, the water's completely fine.

    Re: Magic Kingdom has the worst drinking water ever

    I'll agree with this. It was disgusting whenever I tried it. But then as a result the water mixed into some fountain drinks wasn't all that better. And when I thought to get a cup of ice for a drink I bought, big mistake....

    To some extent I think it's a difference in water tastes.. Zephyr Hills is the big bottled water company out here, I'd been used to mostly Crystal Geyser, and when I started drinking Zephyr regularly I couldn't get over the swampy aftertaste it had. It took a while but now it tastes fine to me. And yet drinking water at MK is still gross beyond measure to me.

    The only drinking fountain at WDW I can handle is one at EPCOT that's on the Club Cool side of the Fountain of Nations. It doesn't have that nasty tap water taste. I'll usually fill up my bottle from that one only.

    I can't even drink tap water at home. Florida tap water is nasty. I buy bottled water or I use my Britta pitcher to filter water from the tap.

    This is true. MK doesn't filter out the water for the pop at the quick service locations. If you want to enjoy a Coke or Sprite at the park, definitely buy a bottle instead.

    Re: Magic Kingdom has the worst drinking water ever

    I like to add:
    When people get fountain drink ,"why do you want "ICE"
    all it does mess the Drink up?
    For my self: I order my drink with NO ICE!
    no matter were I go.........
    * the drink is cold
    * and you get more
    I not buying for cupe of ICE which is mostly what you get!
    Again it's me ,but it does not make since to haveing " ice"!

    Re: Magic Kingdom has the worst drinking water ever

    Well the drink gets warm, and i like my drinks as cold as can be. i usually drink it efore the ice changes to taste.

    I haven't ever drank water from the water fountains (and never will) but I dont think the soda tastes bad.

    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Drinking water is gross in all of FL, not just WDW. Urgh.

    I love the spring water that I have here in NZ. Mwahaha!

    I tease my husband about the amount of ice he puts in his drinks at home in Chicago. He seemed to pour most of it back out into the sink. Of course, now he drinks less soft drinks than he used to. He now buys large quantities of bottled water.

    I know what you are talking about. I had a coke and it does have this dirty water aftertaste. I wonder if that's just normal over there.

    That bad tasting water is pretty much all of Florida. When I lived in Leesburg, FL (about an hour North-west of WDW) it was worse and up here in Jacksonville it isn't quite as bad, but it's here. I think it's a mix of the pipes and the source. I don't want to go into the whole Florida aquifer thing cause... it confuses me.
