The Magic Waters Of The Seven Seas Lagoon...

Good Morning All....After reading about people scattering their beloved relatives ashes in the old Sassagoula river, it reminded me of an old eccentric friend of ours, ( He wore a different kilt every week,day in, day out ) He once took his caravan to Fort William on holiday and based it at the bottom end of Loch Ness...Before coming home he filled at least ten 5 gallon drums of water from Loch Ness..When he arrived home, he bottled the water into small bottles of about 25 mls, and labelled it as the water from Loch Ness Monsters home...He sold it to tourists,mostly Japanese,and made a small fortune...Now to my question..No I don't want to fill up 5 gallon drums of water from the seven seas lagoon,but I would love to fill a small plastic bottle of the water from the beach at WL and take home for my water fall garden feature..However I don't want break any Disney rules..Could I ask a CM and explain what it's for.?...

You might have to carry the bottled water in your checked luggage (maybe Customs & TSA might not allow on a carry-on bag), but I don't think anyone would quibble at the park over someone taking a small bottle of water. Cheers

Out of the Seven Seas Lagoon, I doubt you'll have anyone give you trouble, but you might want to rethink your choice. I doubt you'll catch an alligator in a "gator"ade bottle, but "wild" water in Florida is not necessarily very sanitary or safe. All Florida lakes have the potential to have snakes, alligators, and deadly bacteria (literally brain eating amoebas and junk like that) in them. While there is no known issue with any of these in man-made Seven Seas Lagoon, the lagoon is connected to the naturally occurring Bay Lake. I'm not sure that I would want to take a chance on having any Florida lake water in my house. I don't even want Florida tap water in my house! wink

I think (but am not sure) that you could have issues with getting that through customs. Disney would not really have an issue with you scooping up some water, however be sure that you know what the regulations are as far as your airline & customs laws.

When we sailed out of New Orleans I brought my son home a jar of dirt from congo square (the birthplace of jazz) but I was worried coming through customs on the way back home because we had been out of the country inbetween.

Also the Wilderness Lodge is on Bay Lake, not Seven Seas Lagoon. My thoughts are exactly like the others here.

Yea, there is a reason they have no swimming signs and River Country shut down...if you're going to do it, take some rubber gloves or something and put the bottle in a plastic bag.

Ditto to the rubber gloves if you get water out of the lagoon. And think about sanitizing it before putting into your water feature. silly

Another idea, since you're staying at the WL, what about getting water out of Silver Creek Springs? It bubbles up in the lobby of WL, flows over Silver Creek Falls, and into the Silver Creek Pool. Wink It's obviously magical because it comes out of the spring already chlorinated! eek Amazing, huh? biggrin
