The Trick To Getting Cheaper Drinks in Disney World

Disney World is expensive as is, so you may be looking to save as much as you can while you vacation there.

Magic Kingdom

We recommend always looking for hotel deals before you book your stay, bringing some snacks from home into the park with you so you’re not always buying something from the store, and never buying bottled water in the park (grab free cups from quick-service locations instead). However, if you do have to buy bottled water or soda in the parks, there’s a way you can save money while doing it.

Many merchandise locations will have refrigerators with bottled drinks inside them, which can be super tempting if you’re thirsty. If you’re really wanting bottled water or soda, we suggest buying them at these merchandise locations rather than stands around the parks.

Check out the gift shops before you buy a full-priced soda!

Why is this? Well, if you’re a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) Member or are an Annual Passholder, you can save money at these locations on ANY merchandise you buy (unless otherwise stated), which includes bottled drinks!

However, many of these discounts are NOT available at stands throughout the parks, which is why you should specifically head to a merchandise location. For Passholders, make sure your pass is linked to your My Disney Experience account, as you may be asked to show your Passholder ID on your phone. Need to see where your discounts apply?

  1. Water from drinking fountains (they’re everywhere, why would you buy a drink?)
    Favorite power bar on person if the munchies strike (always cargo shorts, never backpack)
    Lunch outside the parks (also great for a relaxing break)

    Not buying is the best way to save money!
