Disney Quick Tips – Skip the Soda

Green Rapid Fill Mug

It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s another day at Walt Disney World and you are ready to sit down with a cold beverage and take a break. What should you choose to help beat the heat?

Soda, Pop, Coke; whatever you call it, sometimes it’s better to skip in while in the parks. Reason one: it’s expensive. Beverage purchases can add up quickly. That thirty or more dollars a day could be better spent on a new Disney souvenir! Reason number two: soda will dehydrate you. While the thought of a cool and refreshing Coke may be tempting in the August heat of Florida, don’t overdo it. Instead, grab a water; you’ll feel better and you’re body will be happier. Even better than buying tons of water bottles throughout the day – bring your own! Bring your own water bottle and fill up at the many drinking fountains throughout the park. Free and refreshing!

Do you avoid soda while you are in the parks or do you take full advantage of your rapid refill mugs and dining plan snacks to quench your thirst with an ice cold Coke? Let us know in the comment box below.

  1. Nothing’s more refreshing in the August heat than a Powerade. Great use of a snack credit if you’re on the Dining Plan and can’t stomach the thought of another dessert!

  2. When we were in DLR/CA last summer, all of the quick-serve locations had paper cups of ice water out on the counter for people to easily grab! It was a great idea in hot weather and one wonders why they don’t do the same at WDW/FL?
