Where are Disneyland FuelRods?

Where can I charge my phone at Disneyland? The answer is Disneyland FuelRods. 

Find FuelRod locations, phone recharging stations at Disneyland Resort to keep your phone fully charged and ready to use Disney MaxPass, take photos and stay connected inside the parks.

What is a Fuel Rod?

Simply put, it’s a portable charger. Just like the ones you can buy on Amazon (I have this small Anker portable charger), but with a huge added convenience.

You never have to re-charge your charger because you buy the FuelRod once and then swap it out as many times as you’d like, so you always have access to a fully charged device.

When you’re visiting Disneyland, keeping your phone charged is essential and the parks drain your battery like no other. Having a Fuel Rod is super nice because you can keep your phone fully charged at all times.

What’s included in a new FuelRod purchase?

FuelRods are a bit more expensive than regular external battery chargers but you can swap them out for free with FuelRod “founders status.”

When you buy your Fuel Rod, the first purchase comes with one fully charged portable battery, one 6″ USB to micro-USB cable for most Android devices, one Apple 30-pin to USB cable for iPhone and iPad generations 1-4 and one Apple lightning to USB cable for iPhone generations 5+.

When you swap it out you keep all the cords and only trade the battery itself.

Disneyland FuelRod Phone Charging Locations

Disneyland FuelRod locations can change, usually it’s a slight adjustment from one wall to another. If you notice one is listed incorrectly please let me know.

My favorite spot to switch out my FuelRod is near the lockers on Main Street.

I usually walk by this spot to park hop or get things from my locker a few times a day, so it makes it very simple to switch it out. Here are all the FuelRod phone charging station locations inside Disneyland Park:

  • Main Street lockers, on the right hand side as you walk into Disneyland Park on Main Street, U.S.A. close to Starbucks. Lockers are in the hall on the right, Fuel Rods tend to switch between in the hall on the left and the locker hall on the right. So check both if you don’t see it at first.

  • Tomorrowland, by Space Mountain’s exit and more specifically near Star Traders (the old Starcade side) and the Tomorrowland ATM.
  • Tomorrowland, by Buzz Lightyear‘s exit and more specifically in the shop you enter at the exit.

Is FuelRod Right for Me?

I use my phone like crazy in the parks for photos, Disney MaxPass, live video coverage on Facebook and more.

I would usually bring my small Anker portable charger, but I still would run the battery very low by mid-day, even running on low battery mode and using airplane mode throughout the day.

I finally caved and bought the FuelRod when I saw a kiosk at the Oakland airport.

The huge convenience it offers is what pushed me to buy and I am beyond happy with my purchase. FuelRods removed the short-lived fee to swap, swap for free still at Disneyland! You can get free swaps anywhere for life with founders status mentioned above.

I’m never worried about running out of battery with my phone and even offer people to charge up their phone with my fuel rod if I notice they need a little boost in their battery. Do you have a FuelRod to charge your phone at Disneyland?
