Take time to Unwind
One of the advantages of staying on Disney property is the ease of going back to the resort to not only recharge those electronic devices, but to recharge yourself. It’s good to take breaks throughout the day to take a nap, refresh yourself, maybe grab a bite to eat and while you’re at it, plug in those devices for a full charge up.
Turn Off Unused Phone Features
Don’t let those games apps, Bluetooth or other features run in the background, all they are doing is sucking the life out of your battery. If you’re not using them, turn them off. They will save precious battery time.
