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 Fuel Rod 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 Fuel Rod purchase? Fuel Rods are a bit more expensive than regular external battery chargers and are free to swap out. 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.

My favorite spot to switch out my fuel rod 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 Fuel Rod 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. 
  • Tomorrowland, by Space Mountain’s exit and more specifically near Star Traders (the old Starcade side) and the Tomorrowland ATM.
  • Frontierland right by Shootin’ Exposition and inside Westward Ho Trading Company pin shop.
  • Critter Country, all the way in the back at Pooh Corner—my favorite little shop for sweets and Winnie the Pooh souvenirs.
  • Critter Country, lower level of Hungry Bear by the restrooms. 
  • Fantasyland, inside the small world gift shop.

Is Fuel Rod 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 Fuel Rod 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. EDIT: 11/1/19 Fuel Rods removed the short-lived fee to swap, swap for free still at Disneyland!

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 Fuel Rod to charge your phone at Disneyland?

    My little fuel rod has powered my family through six separate Disneyland trips. Before I purchased one, I actually had a list of outlets on the property. The Disney app drains phones like magic haha.

    Thanks for the info!! I wish I found your blog before I went to Disney. It was hit and miss for me finding the kiosks. Your list would have been a lifesaver!!! I’m sharing your list with my family who are going later this month. Thanks a bunch for this!!!
