HOLY MOLY. this is the best thread i've come across on this board yet.

here's the deal with us. we're going to disney to celebrate christmas and one of my daughter's birthday. so, BIG DEAL for our family.

the day we check into our resort, im going to sneak upstairs while my kids are distracted by the insane amount of stuff to check out at pop century. while they hang out with daddy i'm going to high tail 'er up those stairs like a bat out of hell and play santa in our room. i have no idea what i'm going to do yet, but here are some ideas:

- hang string across the room in long, long pieces. with tape that is very gentle and won't damage the walls, of course. paint clothespins to look like mickey mouse. hang the clothespins on the 'clothesline' holding disney pictures, colouring sheets, cards, cut outs, etc.

the link to the mickey clothespins is here...number 5 in the list:

- throw christmas confetti all over their beds and the floor. now, the housekeeper would probably freak over this, lol, but i will clean it up shortly after the kids get their thrill off it. the thought of SANTA bringing christmas party confetti to the room will tickle them pink.

- attach *something* to the door to our resort room where people will (hopefully) write christmas and/or birthday messages for us.

- hang red and green steamers - like i said above, using very gentle tape so i don't damage anything.

- we have a small christmas tree, a very miniature one, that i might bring to put on our table. and get the kids to make homemade disney christmas ornaments during the days leading up to our trip.

- throw some balloons all over the place

- our local dollar store has a TON of cheapie christmas decorations so i'll check them out tomorrow.

- hopefully make this the best darn christmas/birthday my kids could ask for

So, if I print a small poster & roll it in a tube & put it in our checked luggage, will I get arrested if the TSA people think it's suspicious? Lol

Be careful. Disney has been known to charge guest an extra cleaning fee for rooms that require extra clean up. Such as confetti spread everywhere even though you said you would clean it up without a vacuum I don't know how you will manage to clean the carpets! Unless you ask mousekeeping for a sweeper. They have also been known to tell guest to remove items that have been taped to the wall even though you stated you are using gentle tape.

On the Creative DISigns thread, there is a DISigner who has a fireplace picture with stockings that can be personalized with your family names. It has Disney font on the stockings and Christmas and characters to decorate the mantle. I printed it and hung it in our room last year. I don't remember who did it, but you can ask on that thread. I will see if I can find it. It was so charming.

There are also many DISigners that have Christmas decorated Mickey heads or other pics that you can print to decorate the room.

Decorating Magic :)

We have stayed at Pop Century a few times over the past few years and celebrated Christmas and Birthdays. We've never had a problem with mousekeeping or extra charges for using tape. I never even bothered to use the fancy stuff, just plain old dollar store scotch tape comes off clean every time Can't wait for our Disney trip this Christmas!! We paid for Disney Florist to come and bring the Santa Mickey Magic on Christmas Even while we're out at Be Our Guest...Oh, I can't waaaaait!!!
