Can you get free water in all the parks

We have heard that most of the parks will give you tap water - does this apply to all the theme parks and do we need to buy a special cup or anything to get this.

There were 4 of us in Disneyland Paris 2 years ago and we spent a fortune on bottles of water (2Euro a bottle) and was hoping that we could cut some of that cost out.

What we always do (if we have a room with a fridge/freezer) is buy a large container of water (around 5 litres) from a supermarket for a couple of dollars, decant it into small bottles then freeze them overnight. The next day the water will stay nice and cold as it defrosts. This is a very cheap way of doing it and works well for us.

We do plan on buying and taking water with us but we have not got a freezer just a fridge and if you are in a park all day and its hot we will be drinking quite a bit of water.

Thank you for your responses.

We take our own insulated bottles, on a string so you can sling over your shoulder, and fill them with ice from the ice machine in the hotel. They defrost throughout the day and the water is lovely and chilled.

Last time I went, all the parks had plenty of water fountains scattered about. They were usually situated somewhere close to the rest rooms.

We got free cups of ice water in Disney parks, universal parks, seaworld and wet n wild. No problem. I hate paying for water and I hate carrying around water bottles :)

I'm with princess41 on this one. Water is heavy! We just returned and got free iced water in all of the parks. Some venues gave us regular soda sized cups, others smaller ones, but we were never told no.

You can also get water at Universal parks, just ask for it.

Ask for iced water/tap water. Not bottled water that you pay for (and is bad for the environment).
