    "Magic Water"

    We know that if you ask for water, Disney will give you small, free cup of water. Rumor on the internet is that if you ask for "magic water" you may occasionally get lucky and get a free cup of Sprite! While it's debated on different blogs, social media platforms, and discussion boards, Disney goers like Dave B have reported that this is something that has worked for them before: "...it has worked three times in the last two days. They cast member looked at me and smiled every time and then gave me a large sprite." Definitely sounds like it worth a try!
