Walt Disney World, specifically, offers free ice water to Guests so if you do not want to spend money on water bottles, make sure to find a Quick-Service location and ask for a cup of ice water to ensure you are staying hydrated.

In addition, we know Florida consists of lots of sun, but also several thunderstorms and random pop-up showers.
