Last night, we reported on the possibility that the controversial FuelRod swapping fees across Walt Disney World kiosks would be reversed due to impending legal action and negative guest feedback. While kiosks across property were meant to be re-skinned to reflect the new swapping fees overnight, it appears that none of these changes actually took place:
It would appear that the $3 FuelRod swapping fees meant to go into effect today, November 1st, 2019, have been reversed.
Kiosks no longer show any signage denoting swapping fees of any kind, and when you tap through to swap, the machine does not prompt guests for payment.
We hope that the decision to opt out of swapping fees for Walt Disney World guests is a permanent one, but we’ll keep an eye on the kiosks for any further changes.
