Electric Vehicle charging stations now open in Epcot's parking lot for guest use

Aug 18, 2014 in "Epcot"

Good news for drivers of electric vehicles - Epcot has opened an EV charging station in the guest parking lot.

The four Level 2 charging stations, operated by ChargePoint, are the first to be deployed at Walt Disney World.

Drivers of the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, Tesla and other electric vehicles can find the chargers at the front of the Journey parking lot, with a cost to charge of $.35 per kw/h, with a minimum charge cost of $1.50. Like all ChargePoint stations, they are available on a first come, first served basis, and guests can request directions to the stations from the Cast Members at the Epcot parking booth plaza.

ChargePoint accepts payment via credit card at the charge station, or via a ChargePoint account card, which you can obtain free from ChargePoint.

It is expected that more charge stations will be rolled out across property as part of the Drive Electric Orlando program of which Disney is a partner.
