The question of does the filtered water bottle make the water taste better was exactly what I came here to ask. So, to make sure, have you filled up your bottle at a water fountain and the filter made it taste better? Or does everyone get water from CS places?

At DLR we drive so we bring a case of water bottles. Can't do that flying to WDW so I had been wondering about the filtered water bottles.

I looked at Bobbles in the store, but they sure seem flimsey. Lightweight when empty, I guess, but I worry about them getting crushed in the backpack. Anyone had that happen? I may have to do a test run at DLR this summer.

We only filled our Camelbak with water from the fountains and you couldn't taste anything

Oh good. I think I'll pick one up and give it a try.

We used our Brita bottles and filled them from the fountains most of the time. Water tasted great and it was a huge savings. We also ordered ice water at CS restaurants and poured the extra into our bottles.

The Brita filters work very well. Highly recommended to get rid of the nasty water aftertaste at WDW.

Any thoughts on Brita vs Camelbak? I ruled out Bobble due to the flimsy, easily squished bottle.

Brita is a tip up and squeeze while Camelbak has the filter in the straw. I have a regular Camelbak so I'm used to the bite valve but wonder if it will be too hard to suck through a filter. But I like not having to tip the bottle up to drink. On the other hand, Britta is cheaper, and water may flow easier. Any opinions?

The Camelbak Groove is no harder to drink from than a regular Camelbak.
