    This is extremely rude! :rolleyes2 Have a little empathy for someone else's problems! Obviously they care about disrupting others and are trying to do the best to not terrify other resort guests. Personally, I would be more curious as to what is going on than mad!

    OP- I would call about 10 days out and speak to someone about requesting a corner room. Good luck in your stay! I hope you have a peaceful trip!:)

    Maybe the THVs might be an option or the Ft.Wilderness Cabins, where you can have more private space. If not, speaking to your doctor to try to get you some help for when you are at home and traveling would be wise (but I'm sure that's something you are already doing).

    Good luck finding a solution that works for you.

    Oh wow. I've never heard of adult night terrors before, only those that children have. You learn something everyday. I can completely see how adults can have them, too, especially if related to traumatic/stressful past. Anyways...

    I agree with most of the previous posts. The best option would be to find a stand alone unit. A villa, house, or cabin. Staying in a hotel would not be a good option especially if you have been in the situation before, where you have a night terror and police have been involved with them (coming to check in on the situation I'm guessing). Not only would it be a headache for the other guests around you, waking them or their children up with a terrifying noise as if someone is being murdered next door, but it also seems like it is a headache for you as well! If it were me with the night terrors I wouldn't want the police coming to my hotel room asking me 21 questions. I would take the safer route and find a place that my night terror would not bother anyone else. It's really only fair.

    Maybe a doctor could prescribe a medication, but I'm sure you have tried several already. Also, most "sleeping meds" cause an increase in dreaming etc.

    I'm sorry you have this issue and have to deal with it :(

    Have you tried taking klonopin? It helps REM behavior disorder (which may not even be the issue but its worth a try). It suppresses REM which could help the night terrors. I used to be a sleep tech and I have a brother that has night terrors. ITs worth a try at least before you go and see if it helps! Other than that try a corner room maybe top floor then you will have less neighbors. I would also give the front desk a heads up! If you have a bed partner maybe they can notify the front desk when it does happen so if they do get a call maybe that will lower your chances of police calls?:confused3

    It sounds as if he has tried that in the past, and it hasn't worked. Even if he has a corner room, there will most likely be people next to and under their room. It may be impossible to give someone that large of a buffer zone for the duration of their trip too. Nine nights is a long time to expect Disney to keep other guests out of the rooms near yours.

    Remember too that you don't actually call the front desk from your room, you call the call center. So by the time the word gets to the resort, the police could be on their way.:scared:

    The first night it happend, maybe. The 3rd, 4th or 5th nights into your stay you're not curious anymore, you're furious.

    To be blunt, there is nothing that the front desk can do to help. It is up to the OP to do what THEY can do to minimize impacting the guests around them. It is not a reasonable accommodation to expect Disney to keep rooms unoccupied. Nor is it reasonable to expect other guests to simply have to deal with it and have their nights interrupted.

    The OP needs to take it upon themselves to take the steps needed. This, most likely, would be to get a cabin, a unit at THV, or to rent a house off site.

    It is only one night out of six. I've had screaming infants wake me up more nights than that.

    Notifing the front desk will not prevent a concerend guest or CM from calling security or the police. If they are called they will come.

    Hearing an adult screaming in the middle of the night is far differnt than a baby crying. I do not know how you can possibly compare the two.

    I do not think it is reasonable to expect a hotel disney or not to leave adjoining rooms empty . They will also have to have the rooms above and below empty and have other guests kepe windows closed and balconey doors closed ?

    If you need this accomadation then perhaps you should concider going at a off peak time .

    Do you want the hotel to notify all hotel guests that if you hear an adult screaminging the middle of the night ignore it?

    I agree that treatment ,medication, and theraphy can help and perhaps get this condition under control .

    I don't think anyone should have to miss out on staying onsite because they are unfortunate enough to be inflicted with a medical condition. Honestly all OP should be expected to do is take steps to try to prevent an episode. Many people are unfortunate enough to have to deal with this. They shouldn't be discriminated against. If I was woken up a few times on my vacation I wouldn't be mad I would feel sorry for the other person. This is something they are dealing with on a regular basis!

    When the OP said that this was 'TMI' I can't possibly be the only one that thought this was going in a completely different direction. :cool1:

    Read the OP first post again. This happens most nights and can be heard for a 50-100' radius. Hardly the same thing as a crying baby.

    I totally did!!! :scared1::rolleyes1

    Too Much Information

    I believe she said it happened one out of 6 nights on her last trip, not most nights.

    This is a horrible predicament to be in. On the one hand, if I were a witness to it, I would feel sympathy. However, I would be aggravated about missed sleep as well. Really tough situation.

    THV sounds like a great idea, if you can afford it. It would be relaxing and you would not be stressed about bothering others, which can incite night terrors.

    You may call Disney and ask them what they recommend. This is a valid special needs situation and they may have suggestions that we have not thought of.

    Good luck!!

    He/she said it happens most nights but only happened once during his/her last trip.

    As an adult who suffers from possible PTSD and night terrors , I want to first say I completely ephathize with your situation and though some others have had less than favorable responses I truly admire you for being so honest.
    *hugs*

    Though mine are not often as severe..it is a very real condition that medication cannot fix in some , nor should it need to resort to that.

    I feel you have the right to enjoy your vacation just as much as anyone else and by seeking advice and looking ahead are actively trying to make those around you more comfortable is to be respected. I would call the hotel directly and ask to speak to a manager to document your requests and concerns. Perhaps they can accomodate a corner room as mentioned or if you decide to stay off site to be more comfortable for you perhaps they can offer some assistance.

    Quite frankly I don't have children by choice and though I have often been disturbed by them , NEVER would I complain just because I don't like it. It's a part of staying somewhere public. And I personally would not want to feel singled out because of something completely out of my control.

    I wish you nothing but a wonderful vacation :grouphug:

    Just by reading the title line, I did too, lol! I wish that were the concern...I hate that the OP has this medical condition that interferes with his/her sleep. :( I would imagine that would really tire a person out.

    OP, I would definitely let the front desk know upon check in....describe it to them exactly how you described it to us. Maybe they can find you a room in a building that isn't as full as another. I hope you have a magical vacation with good dreams only!
