1. If you have the charger with you, any place you can see an outlet. Often near the restrooms with quick service dining.

2. If you do not have the charger, your only possibility is the scooter rental location and they can plug you in to a standard charger.

I've never had to ask at HS, but the CM's at MK and EPCOT have always pointed the nearest ones out to me when I've asked and told them why.

Sometimes the receptacles are in the floor. A coin can be used to unscrew the cover. If your charger has a box with the plug prongs at the end of the cord, bring a "3 prong to 2 prong adapter" for use as an extender in case the receptacle is too far down for the plug prongs to reach.

If the outlet is covered, is it appropriate for a guest to unscrew it and uncover it, then use it? I'd think that if it was covered, it was done so for a reason - and tampering with it might get one removed from the park?

Also using a 3 prong to a 2 prong adapter is considered to be a safety hazard as you are by passing the ground in an unsafe manner.
