Decorating your resort room?

For those of you who decorate your windows and doors while at Disney, what do you do? I read on disboards about someone who put a dry erase board on their door. Has anyone done that? Does it get good response? I wondered what was allowed and not allowed.

what i do is go to home depot and borrow a whole lot of lime green mickey heads.

i cut them out and tape them all over the door and the window to my room.

i staple twine to the pencil and tape it to the door.
i ask for sign ins on my mickey heads for any disers that pass by.



never had any issues with housekeeping or cm's at the resort on what i do with the decorating.

Thumbs up

Cute idea! We always go in October so we take our Disney Halloween Decorating Kit that we got from the Disney Catalog years ago and decorate the windows of our hotel rooms! I never thought of putting anything outside the door or window for people to sign! Its a great idea! I may have to do something similar this October if you don't mind. Thanks!

We were at POR last Halloween and there were a lot of rooms decorated! I never thought about it

This Christmas I am bringing a small Winnie the Pooh tree I got on clearance at Lowe's for $5 for inside our room. I also have a strand of lights to put around the window (from the inside), Pooh and Friends Window clings, red and green foil garland and a big red velvet bow (all clearance specials from last year!)

But I love the Mickey head idea... may need to borrow that idea too...

i have decorated the door and window at my room at the resort.

i get a kick out of it.


some people write very nice greetings on my mickey heads.
i misspelled a word in my original posting.
i place the mickey heads in the shape of the ears, not eyes as i wrote.
silly me.

decorate the outside of your door. feel free to use the ideas that i have.
housekeeping and the cm's do not have a problem with it.
i checked with the front desk for clearance on it, and they said they didn't care what i did.

I would love to decorate my room at AKL next weekend! It's our honeymoon and would like to get responses from other members of the dis. What are the mickey heads at home depot? There is a home depot 5 miles from the house and I want the green mickey heads to put on my door! Will someone please tell me how to get them?

I think the Mickey heads are the Disney paint samples that are in the shape of a Mickey head on a regular paint chip rectangle. (In the paint department.) My kids usually pick up a whole set to play with when we're at Home Depot.

Hi...

The DIS board standard is the "Alien Green" (Sort of a yellowish-green color) Mickey Ears paint sample from Home Depot's Disney paint department. You can pick up a bunch of them and use them to decorate your door or windows. Maybe make a sign saying "It's-Our Honeymoon!" on each Mickey and leave some blank ones and a pen for people to leave you little messages. Some people (like me!) take the Mickey ears and reinforce them on posterboard, laminate with clear contact paper, add a pin back and wear it to the parks. You can also tie a lime green ribbon to your purse, backpack, or luggage!

Hope your trip is wonderfully magical!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!
I guess Rainy Days are definitely a "turn on"!

That's what I was going to suggest!

I laminate everything! I'm a teacher and I literally spent hundreds of dollars on posters only to have them graffitied. I started laminating and it's very difficult to do permanent damage. Even sharpie ink can be removed with nail polish remover.

You can also get magnetic paper at Walmart (or similar store) and make a custom sign with your names and the date on it and hang that on your door. I've seen some DISers make beautiful ones!
