The Best Water Bottles for Disney World

Wondering which park-approved water bottles are best for bringing to Disney World? We can help!

From lightweight, packable water bottles to hefty, built-to-last options, we’ve rounded up all of our favorite water bottle options for a full day in any park of your choice, whether it be the theme parks or water parks.

It’s good news that Disney allows you to bring your own drinks, and we always suggest (especially for full-day park marathons) that you do in order to keep hydrated throughout the day. Disney has tons of water fountains all around their theme parks for you to refill your bottle for free.

P.S. – We’ve got plenty of recommendations for what else to bring to Disney World in our Gear Guide.

Disney Water Bottle Rules

Disney World permits standard plastic water bottles, as well as metal and plastic containers used for hot and cold beverages. But glass water bottles and glass food containers are strictly prohibited from entering the parks.

Walt Disney World is really flexible when it comes to bringing your own food and drinks into the park. Bringing your own refillable beverage container will actually save you a lot of money considering the average price for a water is about $3 inside the parks. However, there are a few regulations on what you can bring.

Disney will permit standard plastic water bottles, as well as metal and plastic containers used for hot and cold beverages. But glass water bottles and glass food containers are strictly prohibited from entering the parks.

Disney will not allow alcoholic beverages into the parks either. They do not typically open your metal or plastic containers to check for alcohol – but that doesn’t mean that they won’t. They will definitely turn you away if you attempt to bring in wine or liquor bottles or any kind of alcoholic beverage that is plainly visible.

Lastly, you won’t be able to bring plastic straws inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, Animal Kingdom Lodge or inside either of Disney’s water parks. This is for the animals’ safety and to prevent plastic straws from washing down the drains in the water parks.

Rest assured that all of the water bottle suggestions on this list are well within Disney’s boundaries. Here are our recommendations for a day at the parks:
