Picture it. You’re in the middle of your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation. Magic Kingdom in all it’s glory and your little one smiling from ear to ear! You raise your phone to take a picture of your child with the biggest smile you have ever seen. No picture – your battery is dead! This has happened to all of us at one time or another and Disney doesn’t want it to happen to you when you are visiting the most magical place on earth!
To be sure all guests are able to stay charged, WDW is introducing a new convenience. Mobile charging kiosks will be appearing at select locations in all four theme parks and Disney Springs. The kiosks will be sponsored by and maintained by FuelRod. The kiosks will allow guests to purchase a fully charged FuelRod portable charging device for $30. Your purchase will include a fully-charged FuelRod portable charging device, a 6” USB Type-A to micro-USB cable, an Apple 30-pin to USB cable, and an Apple Lightning to USB cable (used for iPhone 5 and above).
Here’s the best part! Once you spend your $30 you now have the ability to exchange used chargers at any FuelRod kiosk around Walt Disney World for another fully charged FuelRod charger instantly when needed.
Because of the nature of my job and having the need to be fully charged at all times, I personally carry my own portable chargers with me when I visit so rarely have an issue of a dead battery. However, this could prove to be a great convenience for guests ~ especially the instant exchange capability. Initially, the $30 cost seems high, but remember that some of those smiling photos of your children are priceless! All in all this could be very well worth the cost for some.
