Does anyone have any tips they want to share? Things that made your trip easier, saved you money, things to watch out for or things that shouldn't be missed?

I was thinking that one thing that worked out well is bringing a water bottle. The water is expensive, but there you need to keep hydrated with the heat and all the walking you do there. There are water fountains around, but it is good to have a bottle to fill up when you are near one.

I love a water bottle as much as the next person but I seldom carry them around WDW. That's because if you find a 'fountain' outlet for soda, they will give you a glass of nice icewater for free if you request one. I've done this many times and never been refused (even when I don't purchase anything!) I've seldom run into an employee who gives me trouble over this and often I am requesting 4 or 5 of these. My usual haunt for this is the stand behind Alladin's magic carpet. Obviously, if the stand does not stock cups and ice - they cannot give you the water, so be careful where you ask for it. And don't try this at a sit-down restaurant unless you are dining there at that time. I'm not sure if this is company policy or simply an employee specific decision.

I would think that it would be in Disney's best interest to make free water available to those who request it. Imagine the publicity if a guest becomes ill due to having no money to pay for a glass of water....
