Magic Kingdom will be testing mobile phone charging lockers for guests use later this week.

The secure lockers will be located in Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe and the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company, and will be available for use free of charge (pun intended.)

To use the charger, guests will swipe a credit card - which acts as an ID for the locker. The locker door opens, and inside are a number of charger cables. The phone gets hooked up, and the door closed. On completed charging, the door glows green. To open the chamber, the same credit is used again.

Some charging stations are already available in the Magic Kingdom – near the new Tangled-inspired bathrooms, but they require the guest to remain in place as there is no method of leaving the phone unattended. The increased use of My Disney Experience and reliance on guests’ smartphones as part of the park experience appears to be driving Disney to helping guests remain powered up.
