    We have exp. those same issues at VWL, as well as other DVC resorts, and All Stars. I understand the thermostats are set to cut off once activity is not going on, but not sure how it detects movement. I dont think you can override.

    eliza61 and jimmytammy,
    Thanks much for the replies. This year is the first time we have traveled in the summer and the first time we have experienced this problem. We normally travel during the fall or winter months. I was surprised this June when every night I woke up in an overly warm room. I should have called about the issue but I was traveling with just my child and we were running from the moment we rose to the moment my head hit the pillow. Our next trip will be mid-August and after this trip I hope we can return to our off-season vacations.

    I think I missed the filling in...so I'd like to hear about that reputation too! :thumbsup2


    I guess I'm lucky that I toss and turn a lot at night, keeps the air going all night. I love sleeping in a room that resembles a meat locker! :lmao:

    There! How does that look?

    Muushka- have we met on a cruise or the Bug Lake Tower lounge? The name seems vaguely familiar.

    I think pretty much all of the rooms are now equiped with thermostats( that can be overridden with the secret instructions from these forums printed, and stored in our Owner's Locker.

    Otherwise, they are also equiped with motion sensors that shut off the climate control while you are away in the parks, saving massive amounts of energy, or while you are putting up your fetand reading, or while you sleep.

    When I wake up with a chill or a sweat, I usually employ Jedi gestures toward the motion sensor, and the climate control resumes operation. You don't actually have to run around the bed or go to the bathroom or goof with the thermostat.

    However- It seems to me that I should be able to get some transparent duct tape from the Owner's Locker and attach a balloon on a string ( or a balsa airplane or a something )to the blade of the ceiling fan on low speed and serve the same purpose- perpetual motion if you will.

    Someone needs to experiment before our next trip.

    On the other hand, I hear the latest cruise ship has a system whereby you insert your room key when inside to make the systems work, and that it's the latest thing in hotels. Maybe this will be better?

    Silly me! You are Ink's husband! You are right, we do know you.;)

    The Moosie looks awesome on you.:thumbsup2

    OK, we have never been allowed in the BLT lounge (never stayed there) but we have done 3 Disney cruises. 3/20/04 Magic 12/23/05 (I think, on Wonder) and 9/27/08 Magic (I think). Anyone ring a bell?
    I remained tagless for about 10 years before I got one. And based on my tags, I think the TF hung on this thread. Hopefully she/he will see that comment you made.:lmao:

    Welcome Dynaguy! Nice to see you around the Dis!
    DH and I had the pleasure of sharing your Illuminations Cruise last December.

    Hi Groupies :wave2: I've missed you!
    Hopefully our lives have returned to 'normal' and I'll have more time to participate in our daily discussions.

    Nice to see you again Ink and :welcome: Dynaguy!

    Blossomz~when we stayed at SSR in May, I requested The Grandstand. It is actually farthest from DTD, not sure if that is important to you. I liked the idea of being close to the main building, and the bus stop is the first on, first off.

    Jimmy~thank you for your updates on Stan.

    Thanks Corinne. Looks like we should request the Springs. There are a lot of first timers and 4 kids!

    Unfortunately, he is still in the hospital. Hopes to go home sometime this week. His platelet count is low, still on nuprogen. He sounded groggy, Sweetie said he was on benadryl today, so that is probably the cause. I could hear the dissapointment in he and Carolyns voice in that they werent home. But they are hanging in there. He appreciates the continued cards and letters. Blossomz, he mentioned receiving one from you this week. And all continued prayers are appreciated as well. He says hello to all us Moosies!!
