What Are Fuel Rods? And Where To Find Them!

For those of you who are new to this concept, FuelRods are these portable chargers you can find around the Disney Parks. You find a FuelRod kiosk, and swap out your used FuelRod with a newly charged one.

Guests can sign up for the FuelRod system for a one time fee of $30. These kiosks accept all major credit cards and will dispense a kit that includes:

• One fully charged portable battery

• One 6” USB to micro-USB cable to use for Android devices

• Apple Lightning to USB cable for iPhone devices

The new FuelRod policy states that anyone who purchased a FuelRod before October 26th, 2019 can be granted a “founders Status.” This means that those users can continue to exchange their chargers for free!

Those who purchased a FuelRod after October 26th, 2019 are required to pay a $3 exchange fee.

When you are ready to swap chargers, you’ll need to find a FuelRod kiosk. See below for Disney FuelRod locations!

Once you locate a FuelRod kiosk, open the FuelRod app on our phone. FuelRod will give you a scannable QR code that you will use to confirm your subscription. Then you’ll insert your old FuelRod into the kiosk and a new FuelRod will pop out!

So where are these FuelRod kiosks located?

I love using these FuelRod chargers as they are small and compact. You can easily fit them into a bag or fanny pack.

Virtual Queue Update: Rise Of The Resistance

Rise of The Resistance opened at Hollywood Studios on December 5, 2019. Anyone who has ridden this attraction, knows the stress of trying to get that early boarding pass.

When Rise of The Resistance first opened, guests had to be in the parks when it first opened to score a boarding pass on the My Disney Experience App.

My family woke up at 5:30am to be inside the park at 7:15am to try and grab a boarding pass.

We were all exhausted the next day!

Since Disney’s reopening in July, they have the virtual queue to open at 10am with the park and additional boarding passes maybe be distributed at 2pm.

My family was very fortunate to score a back up boarding group on our trip last week!

It’s not guaranteed that you’ll get a back up boarding group at 2pm, but it’s always worth a shot. Don’t give up hope!

Starting November 3, Disney will be updating the virtual queue system for Rise of The Resistance.

Guests will now be able to access the virtual queue at 7am as long as you have a park pass for Hollywood Studios that day. You do not need to be in the parks to join the queue.

Disney is probably trying to lessen the crowd in the park in the mornings. People scan into Hollywood Studios just to get a boarding pass.

Guests who do not receive a boarding pass at 7am maybe try again at 2pm. You must be inside Hollywood Studios to join the virtual queue at this time.

I suspect you’ll be able to join the queue from almost anywhere. This is to allow those who are staying at a good neighborhood hotel and locals who are visiting for the day a chance to join the queue.

What do you think about this update? Do you think it will help lessen the crowds at Hollywood Studios?
