There are so many amazing photo opportunities within the Magic Kingdom, and when you add Disney’s new app-based planning program your phone can lose its charge quickly. There are a number of external batteries that you can purchase to always have power on the go, but earlier this year Disney began testing a way to charge you phone for free!
Where they are
There are currently three free phone charging stations in the Magic Kingdom.
- In the tree stumps across from Rapunzel’s bathroom in Fantasyland
- In Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in Tomorrowland
- In the Space Mountain Gift Shop in Tomorrowland
Each of them are clearly marked with signs that say “Charge Your Phones for Free.”
How they work
The charging station in Rapunzel’s bathroom requires you to stay with your phone to ensure it’s not stolen. You simply plug your phone into one of the charging stations and then sit back and relax while it charges.
The two in Tomorrowland include free lockers. You use a credit card as your “key” but there is no charge made to your card. You simply plug your phone in, place it in the locker, and use your credit card to lock it. You can then head out to ride a few attractions, get some lunch, or take a break. When you’re ready to take off again, you use the same credit card to swipe it open and you’re ready to go.
These free charging stations have been a hit so far, and we look forward to seeing them installed in Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the near future.
