I'm very concerned with reports of how warm the rooms are here. I've had my heart set on staying here for YEARs. But I am a HOT sleeper....and can't sleep if I'm too warm. as an example, its been down to probably 25-30 degrees lately at night, and I sleep with my windows open and a window fan going. My room is like an ice locker. So just the thought of sleeping in a room that's 70+ degrees is making me break out in a sweat. Does anyone have any experience with these so-called "medical thermostats" that I read about here that enables the thermostat to be set lower?

are you able to post a photo of the thermostat or at least give any model name/# you can find on it? As I'm just finding out, there's a boatload of articles/videos on how to override these thermostats

We didn't have any problems with the heat. It was actually kind of cold in the middle of the night, I believe the thermostat goes down (not sure, I was sleeping!) without movement, so if your a hot sleeper it shouldn't be too bad. I definitely wouldn't cancel a trip to AoA because of it, it's not as big of a deal as some make it out to be. Lots of people like to be warm when they sleep, not a 68 degree room.

the problem is the fan goes off without movement (i.e. at night) making the room hot at night. add to that tthe fact that people are saying although it claims to be 68 in the room, it actually feels more like mid-70s with the humidity. I usually turn the therms in hotels down to 60 so the room is nice and cold. I cannot sleep when hot and the last thing i want is to not get a good nights sleep while at WDW, after walking around the parks 12 hours a day. I am miserable if I don't get my 8-9 hours of sleep. i hope to hear over the next few months that maintenance is able to override the minimum of 68 when needed.

Does anyone happen to know if there is humidity this time of year into mid December?
I have been told that he humidity is no longer a issue at this time a year verses say August and September however I would like to confirm that with others.
We are set to check in to AOA on Wednesday and so looking forward to our stay and just hoping that we wont have to deal with the kind of humidity that we had to deal with when we took a trip in August one year and that we wont have to deal with a hot suite at AOA because of the thermostat issues

I too am a hot sleeper and have read somewhere that you can take the thermostat off the wall and put it in a warmer spot so it can tell it is hot in the room, but to put it back in the morning. It gets hot because the thermostat is generally right near the output vent.

She didn't want us to wait for our room to be ready so she checked to see if there was one she could put us in. There wasn't but she could put us in another room if the view didn't matter. We are at the end of the hall facing the lake over to Pop, it's great!
My only complaint (and it's not Disney's fault) is, it is so noisy!!! People running and yelling in the halls!!

I'd live to hear what building you were in as we have booked a Cars suite as well and requested building 1 (Mater) and a pool view, but we do plan to check in a wee but early. Overall how was your stay? (when you're back from Disney of course!)

I've read that the thermostats are motion activated. No motion = the unit turns off = gets warm at night. Someone threw out the suggestion of buying a balloon at the park and putting it near the thermostat so it can 'see' it. That way it stays on all night. I plan on giving it a try when we check in this Saturday.

We stayed in the Cars Suite last week. We had no problems with the air. I set it down to 68 at night and it was nice and cold all night (no movement needed)

We are at AOA now in the LM room. It is HOT!!! It is 1 am and I can't sleep it is so hot. I do believe it helped a little because we brought a fan from home (thank goodness)!

I do not have any other complaints! The resort would be perfect if the air worked!!

Yes, call maintenance and see what they can do. Also, if someone there can take a pic of the therm & post it, along with make/model, I'm curious to see if I can find directions on how to o verride it

Go to this thread, http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3009843. Click the link in the first post. When you get to Photobucket scroll all the way down. Give the pictures time to load. There's a picture of the thermostat on the next to last row of pics.
