Is there a way for turbo tax to disable the optimization feature when filing 2 returns for myself and spouse?

There is no global "override" of the optimizations between returns when preparing your return at the same time as that of your spouse. You can override some individual optimizations; just reply back with what credit and/or deductions you're interested in overriding.

To opt out of all optimizations, the easiest thing would be to prepare your returns separately from each other.

For clarification, are you using the online version or a downloaded version? Also what edition of software? Ie: Standard, Premier.
