Default any good places to charge phone MK?

Morning,
packing for trip. Woohoo! was wondering if anyone knew any locations in MK or HS to charge phone, like a place that might have a wall socket to plug into????
I am bringing 3 portable charges, but curious if there are any other places just plug into a socket and sit for awhile?? Epcot I know we can do that in the DVC lounge.
my pitiful iPhone6 gives me about an hour of use, maybe 2, depending on what i'm doing, but that won't get me through MNSSHP or anything interactive in SWGE. Kids' phones have much better battery life, so will get them to download MDE. I should've replaced my battery when apple was doing that deal last year, but just procrastinated and didnt'...or I should just get a new phone....

There is a big seating area with lots of outlets across from the bathrooms by Rapunzel's tower (between Haunted mansion and It's a small world).

They've added charging ports and accessible outlets in the Space Mountain Gift Shop.

There are also charging stations next to Pete's Silly Sideshow.

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but I suggest replacing your battery for $49 at the Apple store to save you as much aggravation as possible.

I noticed my kids and others charging their phones in/near the bathrooms back near Space Mountain.

Ive tried to use the ones outside the Rapunzel bathroom and many of the ports dont work ..the USB ports seem like they were too big and the charger wouldn't stay in and work.....so we just bought cheap portable chargers {AMAZON and the FIVE BELOW store} b/c it was so frustrating trying to find places to charge on our last trips...

The ones outside Space Mtn [in the gift shop area ] are good but busy!!!!

Are you familiar with Fuel Rods ?

If not, these are portable chargers sold at kiosks all over WDW. Once you buy the initial one, after that all you do when it runs down is go to a kiosk and swap out your spent fuel rod for a fresh one.

Currently it is free, unlimited swapping. However I have seen rumors that the "free unlimited" might change.

Here's a link to the kiosk locations:

If you are thinking about replacing your 6... I've had an XR for a few months now and I'm amazed at the battery life. I use it a quite a bit and at the end of the day I still have 75% or more battery life left. Going two days without charging is no problem at all.

Battery life bragging isnít allowed if you never turn the phone on...

Iíve never had good luck finding an empty charging port in the parks, and I donít like being tethered while my phone charges. I just use the Fuelrods. They keep me moving.
