A lot of people will ask what to pack when planning a Disney vacation. One thing that is always on my list is my trusty Hydro Flask! Lets face it, Florida is hot!!! You need to stay hydrated and wasting your snack credits on a bottle of water in the park is just sad. Or even worse, paying out of pocket for one! So it is a good idea to bring your own REFILLABLE water bottle. So what is so great about their product?
This is the "About" on the company website:
Then There Was Hydro Flask
Travis Rosbach was fed up with reusable beverage bottles that failed on every level, from plastics that leached harmful BPA to temperature fluctuations that would make Mercury ashamed. If the hot tea he put in them didn’t scald his hands when he picked them up, then the ice-cold water he took to the beach made the bottles sweat and collect more sand than a sunbather’s bikini bottom.
So Hydro Flask® began with a challenge: to create a reusable water bottle that truly performs in any environment. It had to keep hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold. Period. It should be BPA-free, lightweight, durable, sweat-proof, freeze-proof, recyclable, and come with an unconditional lifetime warranty.
The result of a year and a half of hard work and research is our beloved Hydro Flask. They are made from 18/8 stainless steel and feature double-wall vacuum insulation that ensures the temperature of the liquid inside never mingles with the temperature of the environment outside. Your hots will stay hot for 12 hours, and your colds will stay cold for 24.
Concurrently, Rosbach launched FivePercentBack.org, a website that empowers the end users of Hydro Flasks to donate 5% of our profit to any one of a list of charities that support emergency response services, animal advocacies, social efforts, and humanitarian services. Now, while our customers were doing something good for themselves by purchasing a Hydro Flask, they could also do something good for the world around them. Don’t you just love happy endings?
Besides the technical reasons and the philanthropic reasons (how awesome is that?) why do I love the Hydro Flask? Well one reason is that it honestly keeps my drink cold! I put water in it in the morning and it is cold all day long and that is without ice! Also, it doesn't sweat at all, I love that I don't have to worry about getting everything in my bag wet and ruined from the sweat. I also like that it comes in fun colors, I have a purple one that I just love!
I will say that I have never used it for hot liquids so I can't comment on that.
Another note is that sometimes Florida water can taste funny! So if you can't stand the taste then you may have to stick with the bottled water or maybe you can bring some Crystal Light pouches to help with the flavor!
I just throw this in my Disney backpack and we always have fresh, cold water at hand whenever we get thirsty.
I just want to note that I do not have a financial obligation with Hydro Flask, I just truly love their bottles and know that they actually work!
Don't leave home without it!
