I don't care that anybody uses their phone (considerately). You'd see that if you read the entire thread first.

I care that instead of taking responsibility for their own actions, people seem to expect that it's a company's duty to provide for the individuals' lack of planning.

I was thanking Declansdad for stating my feelings on the issue. Do you really think Disney cares that people are charging their phones? If they had a problem, they'd post a sign or send either a note or an email with the reservation confirmation. Until Disney says don't do it, it's fine.

Snobbery about the use or not of technology is pretty silly. If you like it, use it and enjoy the experience. If you don't...then don't.
I agree, my iphone is great to get those quick shots! Off topic, my camera opens reaaal slow compared to wifeys iphone any suggestions on why?

Good luck. I love taking photos with my phone. Friday I caught the local bald eagle.

I never said Disney cares. I don't even recall specifying 'Disney' (although if I did, someone will correct me). I've been referring to 'business/company' throughout the thread because this doesn't happen just at Walt Disney World.

Who said it was a company's duty other than you?

It's funny how some people think they should be the spokesman or ambassador for companies they have nothing to do with.

Public places will eventually catch up with our electronic lifestyle and install more of these charging stations we are beginning to see pop up. Until that time, some people will continue to find outlets where they can, and some people should relax and not get so indignant about it.

You're right I didn't read the entire thread before posting (I think I said that); I didn't realize that was a requirement for posting.

The statement "taking responsibility for their own actions" is pretty strong for a discussion on where you should use your cell phone and where you you charge it.

It would seem to me that if a company makes outlets readily available to customers and a customer keeps that in mind when planning their trip, there is no lack of planning on their part. Even by looking on boards such as this one for the locations of outlets would lead one to believe they are planning for the situation where they need to charge their phone. Bringing the charger with them to that place of business would indicate even more planning.

Having electric outlets installed as part of standard construction based on a building's/business's own expected operational needs isn't comparable to making outlets available to customers.

So please tell everyone how you know that Disney or any other company has an issues with customers using these outlets that are in spaces available to the paying customers?

Please indicate where I said they do.

Then could you please let me know when it became unacceptable on the DIS Boards to maintain an opinion different from that of the popular one?

Statements like these sure make it sound as if you feel that way.

It's presumptuous to use a business's own electric outlets, in place for its own use, to recharge phones the users choose to allow to run low; especially when foreknowledge (battery life plus non-telephone features) and planning (charging cases, extra batteries, etc.) so easily lets phone owners be in control.

It's not as if the outlets are there for guest usage. Even you refer to them as secret.
Noboby has said you couldn't have your own opinion; however, when you have a habit of presenting that opinion in manner that sounds as if your opinion is the only one that is right it comes off a little holier than thou. When someone asks you about that opinion it doesn't mean they are telling you it unacceptable to have a different opinion.

I would think that if Disney didn't want the outlets available they would just put a plug cover/child proof thing in. That would get the message across. They require a finger print just to get in, I think if they had ANY reservations about using their outlets whatsoever they would cover them immediately. In fact when I was at CHH I asked a CM if it was ok to charge my phone (only out of courtesy) and she said 'no problem, that's what they're there for'.
