    I've heard about the portable chargers called Fuel Rods that you can purchase and swap out throughout the parks. Where are the locations in each park for where you can swap out your battery packs?

    Hi Michelle,

    As someone who has been leaving my camera at home during recent trips to Walt Disney World, becoming entirely dependent on my iPhone to record video and take photographs throughout my vacation, the relatively new Portable Phone Charging System Kiosks located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including all four Theme Parks as well as Disney Springs, ESPN Wide World of Sports, and even select Walt Disney World Resort hotels, have been a godsend.

    With the new Portable Phone Charging System Kiosks, guests can make a one-time purchase of a small, lightweight fuel rod which can be used to recharge iPhone and most Android brand mobile phones. Once the battery in the portable fuel rod depletes, simply visit your closest kiosk to exchange your fuel rod for a fully charged one. There is no limit to the number of times your fuel rod can be exchanged, and you can even bring it back on a future trip! Is that Magical or what?

    The online interactive Portable Phone Charging System locator allows you to see a list of all available kiosks throughout Walt Disney World, broken down by each Theme Park or Resort location. You can even use the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device to search for the nearest kiosk when you need to swap out your depleted fuel rod. Be sure to check back often, as new kiosk locations continue to be frequently added.

    Wishing you pleasant and happy park touring on your next trip, complete with fully charged phone batteries!
