Where can I get Distilled Water?

I know this is a weird question, but does anyone know where I can get Distilled bottled water in WDW? I had sinus surgery a few months ago, and have to do a sinus rinse/irrigation every day, especially after being on planes.

It can't be regular bottled water, or purified water. It must be Distilled water. Has anyone seen this around WDW? We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge.

Any help is appreciated!

the Hess gas station "might" have it.. But my guess is you are going to have to go off property to get it.. Id suggest putting some in your luggage and just flying with it if you dont need a lot it will save you a lot trouble.

If you won't have a car on your trip, it might be worth ordering from Garden Grocer. You can order other items besides your distilled water, too.

The best places are either grocery stores or drug stores. I don't think you'll find either onsite, but if you have a car, head out into the surrounding areas. There is a strip mall just outside the gates on Hotel Blvd, and a Walgreens about a half mile up that road on the left.

Thanks, I have a feeling that WDW won't have it anywhere for purchase. Just thought I would ask around. I think bringing some in my suitcase is the best option. The Container Store has some screw top leak-proof bottles that I could use. I don't think they will leak, but I am concerned about the weight of them in my suitcase. I'll probably have to pack 32 ounces of distilled water to last the week.

Yeah, I've heard this before. I don't even use tap water here.... Definitely don't want any germs in my brain.

Yep, I'd definitely recommend using Garden Grocer to deliver the distilled water (and other groceries) to your resort. Then you don't have to put extra heavy stuff in your luggage, and you won't have to worry about running out!

For the hassle it would probally be, I would just pack some in your checked luggage. I can't tell how much you would need since you haven't said how many days or how many times a day you need to rinse.

You could sterilize a pint mason jar and seal it in there, and then wrap it in some padding. It would be about an extra pound weightwise.

well 32 ounces is only 2 pounds 16oz = 1 pound you get 50 pounds.. i brought a bunch of pedialyte in my suitcase to jamaica for dehyration reasons and i had no issues as all.. just make sure the bottle you get is well sealed at the top with plastic or something.. but bringing it is a lot easier than the hassel of finding it here

We were able to get distilled water at the POR gift shop last year. My husband needs it for his CPAP machine. this was a godsend as we flew in, spent a long afternoon/evening at the parks and didn't remember to stop and pick some up before heading back to the room. Called the gift shop and they said come on down!

Just to be clear, there are no brain eating parasites in Florida tap water, lake water maybe but not the tap water. Yes its nasty, but for this purpose no tap water from anywhere should be used.
