I'd tend to think (hoping it's clear that the forthcoming is just my opinion) that 'they're there for' operational purposes/needs - such as (example only) vacuuming.

Even when people tell you they were told it was ok you tell them they are wrong.

Oh, for the love of God...if Disney doesn't want their outlets to be used, they would cover the outlets!!! It's such a non-issue. I would imagine that Disney would much rather you be sitting in CHH, drinking a soda, or enjoying lunch, while recharging your phone/camera/tablet vs you leaving the park, heading back to your resort and charging there. You aren't in the park, spending money that way.

Sigh...I didn't say the poster was wrong. I didn't even say the Cast Member was wrong. I have an opinion on the latter (based on reason) but don't care for another round of "what makes you think you know...?" or worse.

This person's experiences trying to charge camera batteries seem to refute the 'it's fine' experience:

That would be fine except I was stopped and told I couldn't do that either by Cast Members.
Pretty annoying when I wanted to take more pictures but couldn't because both my spare batteries quit holding a charge and the one in the camera was low.

I would love it if they'd set up charging lockers at all 4 parks at the very least.
I would have happily paid the price to charge the camera battery and not have had to leave the park and go back to my resort to do so.

This is what riles people up. It makes it sound as if other opinions are not based on reason, just yours.

Maybe it's because it's early, but what is CHH? I'm pretty good with most of the Dis abbreviations, but this one's a head-scratcher.

I totally agree with you, but you may as well give it up. Some people cannot see the plank in their own eyes.

We are heading down on Sunday and I use my iPhone for pictures and line apps. I just bought a Mophie Juice Pack which is a mobile battery pack that will charge my iPhone 2 full times on a single charge of the device. It was $80 at Best Buy and will be worth every penny for vacations.
