I think I can pretty much draw the entire Magic Kingdom with my eyes closed
I since turned a new leaf and will no longer eat it

here's our window

we were at asmu in april and stayed in the calypso building room 1606 and really loved it ,we only saw one other window decortaed on our floor.we'd planned to look at other buildings windows but never got to it. we did see a few towel pets in the windows but that was about it. my grands really enjoyed doing the window with me and picking out the lil charaters for each member of our crew,donlad/pawpaw,eeyore/nanna,pooh/blaze,cinderella bride/elli,hook/dada and ariel/mama. i made the mickey heads with old world map printed wrapping paper.the banner ont he big mickey head reads " around the world in 7 days' i later added some designs made for me by a wonderfully creative disser onthe dissign boards...sorry i can't remember who...but i never remembered to take an updated picture...they were peter pan themed,blaze/peter,elli/tink,dada/hook,mama/wendy,pawpaw/smee & nanna/nana the dog! they were os cute...anwyaws here's the window on our 1st day we did it between dtd/check-in & magic kingdom.. the stick figure picture is also form a wonderul disser..and eli painted the velvet alice in wonderland picture at home and packed in her suitcase a month before we left! the kids enjoyed posing for these too! it did make it so easy to find our room...the grands couldn't figure out why others hadn't done their windows... elli thought "maybe they didn't know how to cut out circles or didn't have any cool paper?" and blaze thought " or they didn't kow where the doller tree store was at our city or they forgot their tape?" kids! btw our doller tree has some disney window clings now,and darn it, i didn't think to grab some yesterday for our ,hopefully, upcoming trip with other grands in sept.2009! i'll stop the chatter and post the pix!
elli & our window

blaze & our window

hope you enjoy and i can't wait to see more...
edited to add,we were also in the family suites and loved it! and we all sported our matching stick figure shirts as you can see on the kids in the 'window' pix...pictures of us all in them waiting on the bus for mk on our 1st night,on my tr...

Love these pics!

I'm adding "Decorate our window" to the list of ideas I've gotten from these boards. Thanks!

Our first trip I never thought of decorating any windows. It would have been great because we had 5 rooms in a row. When we go in Aug 09 I am definetly decoarating windows. My niece will celebrate her 8th birthday so I am going to surprise her with decorations and a special t-shirt. Then we will have different decor for the rest of the vacation. I get so many ideas from this site.

This probably sounds "Goofy" but I"m not taking the kids this time and I really want to decorate my windows. In fact, I've never in the past thought about decorating the windows or doors (since I just joined DIS in April this year). Is it silly for an adult to do this? I guess no one will know I have no kids with me this trip but I would really like to do this. I like the simple fact that it makes finding your room easier!

This is awesome! Is it posterboard with giftwrap border? How in the world did you get this to WDW? I have to assume that you flew from Minnesota and didn't drive. I would love love love to do something like this but I have no idea how I would ever pack it for the flight! Any tips?

You are too sweet! It was SUPER easy to make.

The background is simple scrapbooking paper I got from Micahel's in their Disney section with a plain piece of red cardboard paper on top. The stickers, characters, and swirlies were all part of the scrapbooking kit I got. The green Mickey heads were from Home Depot.

We actually drive from MN so it was in the backseat the whole time but I'm sure if you were able to just sandwich the door design between cardboard or something that it would stay all together.

Good luck!! And again, I appreciate it!
