    Cindy from NJ Asked

    I take a ton of pics & my iPhone normally dies by early afternoon. I read on a Disney site that there are new charging stations where you buy the charger and then swap it for a charged one at a kiosk once it's dead. Is this true? Purchase info?

    Hi, Cindy! It amazes me the speed at which I can burn down the power in my phone. I am constantly taking unforgettable pictures of my girls or making changes to my FastPass+ selections. My husband purchased a portable charger for me to use, but I found it heavy and bulky. I discovered FuelRod during my last visit and it was a pixie-dusted addition to our trip!

    You can purchase a FuelRod from a variety of kiosks found inside merchandise locations around the parks and Disney Springs. Each one is delivered in a small tube and comes with a 6” USB Type-A to Micro-USB adapter cable that fits most Android devices, an Apple 30-pin (iPod, iPhone Gen 1-4), and Apple Lightning (Apple Gen 5+) adapters. Currently, you can find FuelRod kiosks in these locations at Walt Disney World Resort:

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park - Island Mercantile
    Epcot - Disney Traders
    Disney’s Hollywood Studios - Celebrity 5 & 10
    Magic Kingdom - Curtain Call Collectibles, Tomorrowland Light & Power Co., Big Top Souvenirs, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe
    Disney Springs - Marketplace Disney Photo Imaging and DisneyQuest

    You can purchase one of these before your trip from their website (a quick web search will show the web address) or from various locations across the country. In my case, I purchased mine at the airport as I was awaiting my flight. Any FuelRod you purchase outside of Walt Disney World Resort can be exchanged once you are at the Resort. The good thing about having the FuelRod was that I could swap it when it was depleted in a very quick and convenient exchange. While at Epcot, I just popped in Disney Traders as my daughter walked past the store outside. I emerged from the other side of the store just as she got there.

    I hope this helps you plan for your upcoming vacation, Cindy! Let us know if you have any other questions!
