We Love it! Found it on ebay, just search bicycle solar phone charger and several will come up. My son used it in the field in the Marines, I take it to Farmer's Market, and it is GREAT at Disney, (Plus all the cm's comment on how cool it is!)

(copied from another thread)
Some areas including Electric Umbrella have receptacles in the floor. Usually a penny can be used to loosen the catch that lets the cover lift up.

Get a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter to use as an extension in case the prongs of your AC adapter don't reach the receptacle down below.

If you get one of those solar chargers you will need to carry it with you all the time as opposed to leave it in a stroller.

At home, it would be great in emergencies when electric power is out for extended length of time, as well.

I bought the Mophie Juice pack to charge my phone at the parks. Great investment since I use my phone a lot for pictures. It has been great this week.

I agree with the Mophie Juice Pack it works great for me. My husband has portable batteries we may get a couple more of those but I like my case it allows me to charge when I need to and I can put my husbands phone in the case if need be.

Why do you need to bring a phone into the park? It's a vacation to get away from everything.

I don't recall seeing a post about Cosmic Ray's but I know on the side that faces the castle, there is an outlet. We found it when we sat down for lunch one day.

Isn't it less stressful to just charge a cell phone overnite in the outlet provided in your room?

We do that, but often need extra juice before the end if the day.
If you are using your phone a lot during the day for taking pictures or using the lines apps, etc it is not unusual for the battery to get very low by the end of the day (our park days are 12 hours +)

There is an outlet in the exterior hallway of Agrabah bazaar, near the flying carpets in MK. Just walked past yesterday and two people were plugged in there. The outlet is out of the way, near an unused merchandise cart.

Not to be a troll, but can't people just charge their phones in their rooms the night before? How are batteries going dead so quickly? I don't get it..

~That's a very nice & helpful list!!! Hopefully, the list will continue to grow. I don't know, so far, all of my cell phone batteries last in the parks. But, you never know if or when you may need to charge one!
