Smoking at Epcot
Smoking including electronic cigarettes has recently been banned inside Epcot. There are small designated smoking areas outside of the park.
Charging your Mobile Phone at Epcot
Kiosks are located throughout Epcot selling FuelRod portable chargers. Currently, these kits cost $30.
Kits include adaptors for all Apple and most Android devices. Once your charger needs replacing you simply swap it at a kiosk for a new FuelRod at no cost.
It is uncertain how long free swaps of FuelRods will last. It had been announced this would end in 2019, but threats of legal action seem to have stopped it for now.
