I guess I'm lucky that I toss and turn a lot at night, keeps the air going all night. I love sleeping in a room that resembles a meat locker!

Where oh where is the tag fairy when you need him/her?

Grab yourself a Moosie Siggy of our beloved, I'll bet he would look mighty handsome on you.

There! How does that look?

Muushka- have we met on a cruise or the Bug Lake Tower lounge? The name seems vaguely familiar.

I am not sure if this is what really made it work again or if it was on sensor of some kind and my walking around the room triggered it back to AC mode. Regardless, rumor has it there is a way to override WDW thermostats, so, two questions, has anyone experienced a similar problem at VWL and if so, is anyone aware of a way to override the thermostat standard settings.

Many thanks,

I've read how to override the thermostat, usually on the resort boards. see if you can search and find some thing.

I think pretty much all of the rooms are now equiped with thermostats( that can be overridden with the secret instructions from these forums printed, and stored in our Owner's Locker.

Otherwise, they are also equiped with motion sensors that shut off the climate control while you are away in the parks, saving massive amounts of energy, or while you are putting up your fetand reading, or while you sleep.

When I wake up with a chill or a sweat, I usually employ Jedi gestures toward the motion sensor, and the climate control resumes operation. You don't actually have to run around the bed or go to the bathroom or goof with the thermostat.

However- It seems to me that I should be able to get some transparent duct tape from the Owner's Locker and attach a balloon on a string ( or a balsa airplane or a something )to the blade of the ceiling fan on low speed and serve the same purpose- perpetual motion if you will.

Someone needs to experiment before our next trip.

On the other hand, I hear the latest cruise ship has a system whereby you insert your room key when inside to make the systems work, and that it's the latest thing in hotels. Maybe this will be better?

Silly me! You are Ink's husband! You are right, we do know you.

The Moosie looks awesome on you.

OK, we have never been allowed in the BLT lounge (never stayed there) but we have done 3 Disney cruises. 3/20/04 Magic 12/23/05 (I think, on Wonder) and 9/27/08 Magic (I think). Anyone ring a bell?

I remained tagless for about 10 years before I got one. And based on my tags, I think the TF hung on this thread. Hopefully she/he will see that comment you made.

Welcome Dynaguy! Nice to see you around the Dis!
DH and I had the pleasure of sharing your Illuminations Cruise last December.

Hi Groupies I've missed you!
Hopefully our lives have returned to 'normal' and I'll have more time to participate in our daily discussions.

Extending an official welcome Dynaguy! We love new folk on our virtual porch so grab a rocker and set awhile!

Saw Cars 2 tonight. Not a dull moment! I even saw a hidden whatever in the movie ! First time I found one. There is a sign on the racetrack for Lassitires!

She'll have to set me straight as to who I have or haven't met in real life.

Nice to see you again Ink and Dynaguy!

Blossomz~when we stayed at SSR in May, I requested The Grandstand. It is actually farthest from DTD, not sure if that is important to you. I liked the idea of being close to the main building, and the bus stop is the first on, first off.

Jimmy~thank you for your updates on Stan.

Thanks Corinne. Looks like we should request the Springs. There are a lot of first timers and 4 kids!

Just spoke to Ranger Stsn

Unfortunately, he is still in the hospital. Hopes to go home sometime this week. His platelet count is low, still on nuprogen. He sounded groggy, Sweetie said he was on benadryl today, so that is probably the cause. I could hear the dissapointment in he and Carolyns voice in that they werent home. But they are hanging in there. He appreciates the continued cards and letters. Blossomz, he mentioned receiving one from you this week. And all continued prayers are appreciated as well. He says hello to all us Moosies!!
