Use an EBS backed AMI instead of an Instance Store backed AMI. From the AWS docs:

Instead of an Instance store backed AMI, use an EBS-backed AMI. AWS documentation states: 

            Amazon EBS-Backed              Amazon Instance Store-Backed

Boot time   Usually less than 1 minute     Usually less than 5 minutes
