First time decorator here!
I really want to decorate...sounds so much fun!

I want to decorate my door and windows for my Birthday trip March 6-12.
My birthday is the 11th.

Problem is that I am not Artistic or Crafty
I was not born with those genes

I like the dry erase board idea for the door.
I'm travelling solo, by air, checking 2 bags, so I have to limit what I'm going to take with me...can anyone give me any other creative ideas?

suggestions are MUCH appreciated!

Do not have to be creative, just go with your feel its all about you and what makes you happy. Get stuff don to your resort, i ship mine down there to the resort(Ohh POP century,the greatest resort In the world!!! LOL just saying, of course just my opinion) along with anything else I can not fit in my Bags.

Window markers

I did not read through all of these posts (no time, we ar leaving in a few hours for POFQ) so I am not sure if this was already discussed. For Christmas my kids received markers that are specifically for windows, do you think they could use them in our room or would that not be a good idea? TIA!

Has long as you clean the windows before you leave, it should be ok.

There have been several reports on this thread that guests who have used the window markers have, at best, been asked to remove them from the windows, and at worst, been threatened with a charge. I believe the consensus was that while you may be using markers designed for windows, other people might see it and use non-window safe markers.

Hi everyone!

Well my trip is just a couple days away, and am so excited to get to Disney and to decorate my door and window at POP on Weds.

I've got some really fun decorations.
I'm taking enough that I can make changes everyday.

A friend also made a Happy Birthday sign for me to hang on my birthday! So glad that I have artistic friends

I will take lots of pics, but going to have to have someone teach me how to post them online here on the boards when I get back.

If you are at POP and see my room plse say Hi!
(I'm going to ask for a 1st floor in bld 1 in 50's or building 10 in 70's)
I know I'm not guaranteed but going to ask.

Visiting in 24 days!!!
I make a scrapbook page and at the top I ask people to sign it and ask them is they DIS! Our mousekeeper left us a lovely message too. We got a good amount of signatures. I also did this they year my husband and I celebrated our anniversary and people wished us a happy anniversary on it. I have also done this when I graduated with my masters degree. I had a lot of fun with it.

I hope you do too!

We used a dry-erase board several times and did get some good responses on it each time! It definately makes a difference if your door is in a more high-traffic area. We were once in a quiet corner of POFQ and hardly had any response, but then in a much more traveled path and got lots! It's fun to come home at night after a day in the parks or wake up in the morning and see what people write!

I loved using a dry erase board!
I just got back from my 7 day trip...had a 1st floor in building 1 at POP.
Loved coming home each night to see what messages were left.
It was an extra magical treat!

I used a dry erase board with magnets so it hung easily on my door, and I bought colored dry erase markers that had a magnet on them so I was able to hang the different colored markers on the door around the board.

You could also buy scrapbook pages at your local craft store, and put magnets on the back to hang on your door. I found some that were Disney themed to use as decorations, but you can have ppl write on those too, and use them as a souvenier of your trip.

I simply took pictures everyday of the messages left and then erased the board for the next day.

I wish I knew how to post pictures on here, then I could share my door and window decorations with you all.

What is the official name of the DIS Mickey Head paint chip? I know its a lime green color but does it have an official name? I want to make sure I grab the right color for my next trip!

I thought that Disney paint was no longer sold at Home Depot, or did they just switch to a different chip style? In any case, I believe the Mickey Heads disappeared from Home Depot sometime last year....

Home Depot doesn't carry the Disney line of paints anymore. (Or maybe they do but don't have the Mickey head paint chips anymore.) Sorry.
