Wanted to update y'all on the search for electric outlets at Disney World. We went to the Magic Kingdom yesterday and parked at the Contemporary Resort for lunch. I asked the gate guard about a parking spot with access to a plug. He pointed to a spot directly across from the gate guard shack. So, I pulled in and actually found the outlet! But, unfortunately, it is in a cordoned off area the width of three or four parking spaces with those flexible cones (motorcycle parking?) and the charge cord wouldn't reach from the outlet to the first available parking spot (which actually was available). Perhaps next time I'll bring an extension cord!
Prior to going I called the Grand Floridian. I thought for sure they would have an EV station as it's the flagship resort at Walt Disney World. But, no luck. I called the Contemporary and they said they didn't have one either. I spoke with Disney security on the phone asking for any ol' outlet on property. But, no dice.
I figure the more I can plant a "bug" in people's ears, the better the chance Disney will do something sooner than later.
Also, another note. I am going to a convention at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando next weekend. I called and asked about EV charging stations. The lady who answered said they didn't have any. However, a press release from 2010 found via google search revealed the local utility company, OUC, maintained four EV charging stations at the OCCC. So, I called OUC, was transferred to a few different departments and eventually left a message. Thankfully, someone called me back and told me there are indeed four "Chargepoint" charging stations there. Not sure how they work, but hopefully I'll be able to figure it out. According to Chargepoint's web site, the four charging spots are right next to the building. With a parking lot as huge as theirs is, that's kinda cool.
