    Bottled water

    Just a heads up when buying bottled water at Epcot. I just grabbed a bottle of water out of a large bucket of ice water and headed to the register. I had no idea that I had picked up Evian (at $3.25) in stead of Dasani that sells for $2.00. You can be assured that I'll be drinking every drop of what's still in the bottle.

    Wow! That's more than that really fancy Voss water that comes in a glass bottle. I hope it was more than 20 ounces...

    Looks to be about 12 oz. I guess I should keep the bottle. (Must be made of something special to hold such "special" water.

    12 ounces?!?!?! Wow. And Evian doesn't even taste that good - I would choose Dasani over it any day. You know they did a study and Evian was one of the dirtiest bottled waters they tested?

    my family and i went to the Grand Floridian (for a visit, wayyy too expensive to say) and while at the bar at the pool i asked for an ice water. i figured i would get a cup w/ some water and ice in it, but no i got one of the wicked expensive evian water bottles.

    tip for water: if you're thirsty in EPCOT and around the UK pavillion go in the Rose and Crown. if you ask they'll give you a cup of ice water. free water and in a plastic cup so you can leave and keep exploring the park

    that's quiet a price difference for water, were they both 12 oz bottles? I don't buy bottled water anymore at home, from what I've read it's a big rip off but I understand buying it in the parks but I will be on the lookout when I do, thanks for the warning mini-V
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    It appeared to be the same size bottle as what I usually buy in the parks. You're right about only buying water when out. I still don't care for the taste of FL. tap water. In fact, if I plan a bit ahead, I bring a small bottle of filtered water with me from home. It adds a bit of weight to my purse that I don't appreciate, but if I really don't like carrying the water, then it forces me to make sure I drink it.
