FuelRods have certainly been dominating the Walt Disney World news cycle for a while now, and with Disney rolling out step by step directions in the MyDisneyExperience app, it’s understandable as to why these portable phone chargers are becoming such a big deal at the parks right now. Guests are going to be using up a lot of battery life utilizing this service, so making sure guests have a viable way to recharge their devices seems like a good idea. Well, Disney Springs is currently taking this plan a bit further…
Guest Relations locations have always given guests the option to leave their devices for charging, but never before have they rented out phone chargers to guests. Disney Springs is currently testing the program, under which guests can head into guest relations and choose if they would rather leave their device to charge or borrow a charger from Disney. If a guest chooses to borrow a charger, they can leave a $35.00 deposit and take a charger with them. When the guest is done with the charger, they can return it to get back the full deposit. Pretty nifty, huh?
The charger is pretty small, with a 2200mAh battery capacity. They are pre-charged by Disney for guest use. Guest relations does have a few iPhone and Android device USB cords available, but you may want to have your own with you as the cords are in short supply there.
The program has not been rolled out to the parks as of yet and is exclusive to Disney Springs at this time, but may very well roll-out to other locations soon.
