I hear your concerns. My DH also snores and my DS5 wakes up around 5:30 am. So between the two of them, I can't sleep in a standard room either and there are only 3 of us! Ear plugs are FABULOUS! Another option could be a junior suite at CSR or two rooms at any mod. It will probably only cost you a little more than a standard room at AKL, but would give you a lot more room.

What kind of earplugs are you guys getting? I have been looking and none say "anti-snore!" :-)

I need something that will truly keep us from hearing a freight train coming through our room!

Oh well....I guess I was being naive and hopeful. But more naive than hopeful.
It's true that you can sometimes get good deals on last-minute rentals.....in terms of the cost. The problem is, the availability isn't there. Most DVC owners make their reservations between 7-11 months out, so by a couple of months out, your choices are very limited.

That said, you may still find availability at the largest resorts - SSR and OKW, and maybe even AKV, at this point. I'd say it's worth a try. Check out our DVC Rent/Trade board, check out David's Vacation Club Rentals

Did you look under special offers tab on disneyworld.com? There is a 35% discount that is available for akv for your dates. It's book by 12/31. That's how we got a 1 bedroom for Jan 19-27th. We were going to go into a studio and decided to upgrade to the villa.

You can do the discount and add dining and tickets and have the discount applied to the room only. Either way, you are going to Disney.

Most grocery stores or drug stores sell foam ear plugs. Get the ones with a 32 or 33 NRR. You won't hear a thing. They usually come in a small package of about ten pairs for around $3 or $4.

For all the snorer's.....try some Breathright strips. My DH uses them and they work really well.

I always bring ear plugs on vacay in case of noisey neighbours. I like the silicone ones that you warm up in your hand and then mold to the shape of your ear. I've tried the foam ones and find that they fall out too easily.

Have you thought about the cabins at fort wilderness. You would have a separate bedroom and the cost would be less than your room at AKL. You could even cook some meals and not do the ddp.
So ok the cabins are not as fab as AKL but they are in the moderate catagory and you can get a boat direct to MK.

These are the ones I buy

fyi - this price is for 6 boxes. One box is about $4.00 in the store.

Oh if only that were true.

Despite everything, DH and I slept apart for something like 4 years, until he was FINALLY diagnosed with sleep apnea (worst case his doctor had seen in 5 years, and his doctor works at a big sleep clinic in Seattle). He got a VPAP (like a CPAP, but the air pressure is Variable) and his pressure is set at near hurricane strength. The machine is actually pretty loud, too, but recently he got a new, better, mask and I can FINALLY sleep through the night (unless he gets a leak in the mask...that wakes me through the serious earplugs).

For those who snore badly or who have people who snore badly in their lives...I might recommend a sleep study! The snorer in my life is a lot safer now...he is less likely to die in his sleep from HIS body trying to kill him, and he's less likely to die while sleeping from ME killing him...sleep deprivation by snoring starts to make you somewhat bonkers!



OP, I know you want AKL (did you look into a rental, by the way?), but a less expensive villa would be OKW. Lovely, BIG, and the points for it are lower so a rental price would be lower. Might be worth looking into. Very very different than AKL, though.
