I could live with 68 if:
- rooms had ceiling fans
- it wouldn't turn off at night regardless of temp

There is another thread over on the Theme Parks board talking about conservation. Apparently the roof and window materials they used to make AoA are supposed to help keep the room temperatures down quite a bit. Maybe they over-estimated how effective those things would be at keeping the room temps down.

People waking up sweating is definitely not ok. And anyone has the right to complain about that. Complaining because you can't sleep under a pile of blankets is a bit different.

they probably thought that could justify limiting how cool you get the rooms. well it didn't work... and let me tell you if they want to worry about being green and saving energy... they need to look at how these doors seal too. Mine had a lot of light coming through around the edges letting warm air in

The thing alot of the younger women are not getting is perimenopause and menopause. It will happen to you one day and you will be on your knees thanking God for air conditioning. You go from comfortable to broiling in a flash. The best part is you don't know when it will happen or how often each day. Oh and size doesn't matter either. I used to think being thing would save me from all that icky hot flash stuff- jokes on me.
Not only that but medications also can cause the body to heat up. As far as utilities go, what I spend in the summer on air conditioning, I save in the winter by keeping the heat down and the fan running on low, turning in the opposite direction. When I have the grandchildren over, my main concern is their safety and comfort. I put long pant/short sleeve pj's on DGS 2 and in winter long sleeve, long pants or a blanket sleeper. I will turn up the heat to 67 if it's really cold and windy outside. DGD 15, is old enough to dress for her own comfort. I can't help it.

One thing Disney can do to keep room temps down in sunny humid FL is to blow ice chest type styrofoam on the walls and in the ceilings.
No kidding, my parents had a 7000 sq ft house and Daddy had a company spray that foam on the outside. His electric bill each month was $135.00. I don't know if it is considered a green product but using less energy definitely is green. The surface was siilar to stucco and easily painted.

I wouldn't do that if there are young kids in the room. Too dangerous!

How would you dress a baby/toddler at night when they don't stay covered like you (general you) do? Winter jammies all year?
I'm an under the sheet and blanket type sleeper. Especially soft blankets. I always remove the bedspread. I was in the room with three girls (15, 10, 4). Everyone was in pajamas and everyone was under covers. Just they way we like it. I keep my house at home at 68 degrees year round. Lower temps also help keep down the spread of all those nasty bugs kids bring home from school.

While a typical recommendation is to keep the room between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit, Heller advises setting the temperature at a comfortable level, whatever that means to the sleeper.

I always feel hot in hotels and ALWAYS, always turn the a/c down to 60-62. Anything higher than that and I sweat all night and cannot sleep. at home I keep the bedroom vents closed so no heat comes in and I keep my windows open. It's 28 outside right now and I have my windows open so it's probably like 40 in my room - perfect sleeping weather.

I've skipped several pages but OP - have you gone to the front desk? Did you ask for the medical thermostat? Has anyone confirmed if this is just the LM rooms or is it the suites as well??

That would be good to keep down on noise and hearing your neighbor in the bathroom as well lol

How in the world is sleeping under a sheet like camp? That's a very new one to me.

Also, thanks for the back handed compliment of being a younger woman . I have totally been there and done that - and also learned to go with the flow. We also have ceiling fans that circulate the air at night.

Web MD on Best Temperature for Sleeping
Even *freezes* do not do away with the nasty *bugs* going around

As for *recommended* sleeping temps, even the experts can't agree. When I googled it, it seemed it was mostly 68-72 with variations. In other words, as far as people's wants, the nightly temps do not matter as far as health goes (not talking about extremes either way).

"experts" in low humidity areas probably have a different ideal range then those in high humidity areas like florida

68 in the winter time is cold at my house when the heat is on (low humidity) but 68 in the summer is warm in my opinion (high humidity) in florida during the summer
