Everyone knows how important hydration is in the Florida summer, so it’s nice to see Disney adding more quick ways to hydrate (and for free). These have already popped up in many airports and gyms.
Now they are being featured at Disney beginning with Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe. These fountains are a wonderful alternative to waiting in long quick service lines to ask for a free cup of water. They give guests the opportunity to fill their own water bottles brought from home without wasting a water cup (or two). There is a count of how many water bottles will be saved but maybe it should be a paper cup count instead.
Elkay, the distributor of the fountains, also claims to reduce lead and other contaminants through the filter. For Disney, this is another small step along with paper straws to the company becoming more environmentally conscious. Here’s to hoping more of these will be added in the coming future. How do you feel about the new fountains?
