PHOTOS: Self-Serve Water Stations Return to Disney World

We’ve been seeing slow changes back to “normal” in Disney World.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Lately, park capacity has been increased, social distancing has been reduced, and the outdoor mask requirement has changed. We’ve also seen smaller shifts, like the removal of hand-washing stations and the return of self-serve fountain drinks. And now, we’ve noticed another change.

In case ya didn’t know, you’re able to get a free cup of water in Disney World by stopping by many outdoor locations or Quick Service restaurants! Usually, you’ll either pick up a cup of water from a tray or a Cast Member will pour one for you.

Trays of Water at Backlot Express

But when we stopped by Backlot Express in Disney’s Hollywood Studios today, we noticed self-serve water stations! The jugs were outside of the restaurant, replacing the trays indoors.

Guests were able to pour their own cup of water (which, by the way, was nice and cold, even without ice). The Cast Member we spoke to explained that they were constantly bringing out more jugs so people could help themselves!

Self-Serve Water Stations

We saw self-serve water stations like this pre-COVID at select locations — but this is the first time one has popped up since the parks’ reopening. We stopped by a few other Quick Service spots in Hollywood Studios (like PizzeRizzo and ABC Commissary) to check out the situation, but so far, Backlot Express is the only one we’ve seen with this new system. We’ll keep an eye out, though, and keep ya posted!
