I found this on another thread.... worth trying!

Press/ hold F/C button on left side....once "b/p" appears its on override.

We did not have any issues with the air.. It is sensor controlled but Everytime anyone moved it seemed to turn on it stayed very cool in our room and last week it was in the 90's...

Just checked in today! We're staying in the cars' section in the lightening McQueen building. We typically stay at the Polynesian but wanted to try somewhere new and less expensive for our weekend trip. With that being said, we worried about being disappointed. BUT we are so happy to be staying at AoA- the theming is flawless and the suites are the perfect amount of space (we have 5 adults total) IMO cars is by far the best themed area of the resort- you really feel like you're in Radiator Springs and the details are incredible (both in room and outside) We usually stay deluxe but I would love to stay here again.

Can anyone who is there now or been there tell me if you can buy milk in larger portions for infant feeding?? Were taking our granddaughter and don't want to be limited to single servings. Not sure ordering it and delivery is a good choice for us either if we can get it on site some how that would be great.

Where do you guys clean your refillable mugs at? Is there dish soap available to use somewhere?

Also, I have always used gardengrocer in the past but i don't think I need to order $50 worth of food. If i use wal-mart or costco to deliver water where will it be when I arrive? Bell services? Can you use the refillable mugs for juice too?

Thanks

My method for mug wash is to pack folded paper towels with dried dish soap squirted into them. You can use them for a decent in-room wash.

There is no juice available for the refillable mugs. Sadly in the past some resorts had juice, for example apple at Pop Century, but those choices were replaced with other soda-type options.
