    Thank you! I just printed that and put it in my backpack I use only for Disney Trips.

    Have got to say this is the most useful tip of 2009!
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    So has anyone actually tried any of these tips during the hot summer months? Just curious if any of them worked
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

If you do this correctly, you will see the letters "bp" where the temp normally shows. You are now bypassing the sensors in the room. You can then set the temp to whatever you want and it keeps the room that cold whether you are in it or not. You might have to do this once a day as the thermostat tends to go back to sensor mode after 24 hours.
    This works for CSR or other resorts with a similar thermostat.

    I actually didn't need to do it overnight. It stayed on all night and kept the room very cool.

    Thanks! I'll be going to CSR in the fall and have made a note of the recommendation!

    Just got back from SSR and am happy to report the air conditioning was T-riffic. No motion sensor. It was quite chilly the first night so I adjusted it down to a perfect 70* Outside it was in the 90's
