This thread was nothing more than a heads up to people who are looking for a place to charge their phone in the parks. Nothing more, nothing less.

Why hijack the thread? Give it a rest!

It's not that you maintain a different opinion that bothers some people. It is the tone of your messages. This was a thread that provided a great tip that I can't wait to take advantage of. I, and others on this thread, don't like being called a thief.

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.
My opinion is my opinion. I apologize that the way I write makes it sound like my opinion is the only right one. I'm just trying to avoid certain controversial (not banned) words. I stand by my opinion. There's even one person in this thread who was told Guest Services won't charge devices and the person couldn't use an outlet to charge the camera themselves.

I (and any of the few posters with the same opinion) have already in this thread been referred to as the snide "high and mighty" - for, as far as I can tell, posting my unpopular opinion in this open conversation. It appears the same poster has another critical comment on the next page about me being part of this conversation.

Oh, boy.
Stealing? Really? I think it's wrong for consumers to use outlets any business has installed for its own use. Just wrong. The opposite of right. Other posters brought up minimal money and electricity. That wasn't me. I can't help what you infer.

Again, how do you know the company has a problem people using the outlets?

They don't. I asked if it was a problem and they specifically said 'that's what they're there for'. Obviously they were there before the cell phone use but she meant for guest use.

I don't know, and I never claimed any business has a problem with this. I've said and maintain I think it's wrong, that it's presumptuous.

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.

Sorry, you're wrong. I was asking the CM if they were allowed for guest use and was replied with 'that's what they're there for'. But I'm sure you know much better than my first hand experience.

No, you know your firsthand experience better than anyone. What did I say that makes you think, or that it appears, otherwise? I used as many qualifying words as I could to describe - again - that what I wrote about what you were told is my opinion.

Not going to join the debate but do want to comment on the battery issue. Dd has the iPhone 4 and she can leave the house fully charged at 8 am and be at less than 30 percent by noon. It is definitely losing it's ability to hold a charge over time (2 years old).

In this day and age using your phone while on vacation can be for many things ~ photos, wait times for rides, texting, looking up reservation #'s for dining, games, park hours, the list could go on and on. I have never ran out of battery while at the parks... but if i ever get extremely low on battery and needed a little charge... i will plug it in. When i am paying to stay on WDW property and spending THOUSANDS of dollars for my vacation there, i really don't think they would mind me charging my phone for a few mins (if an outlet was near my table). Would i go out of my way to find one... probably not. As far as it being said its poor planning or however it was worded.... its not that people don't plan their trips... I can honestly say Disney vacationers PLAN and PLAN well. Sometimes taking a few to many pics of little Suzy can ruin a battery life down!

But if people don't like other people talking about using Disney's outlets to charge their phones... why not leave the post and find a post that makes you happy?

Maybe because this is a discussion board? Not an Only post if you agree with everyone else board?

I would never think to plug in at the parks, but that is because I can be such an airhead I would probably walk off without whatever I had plugged in.
