Stateroom Magnet Help

Our family is going on our 1st ever Disney cruise (yes, I am so excited I can hardly type) in 2 weeks.
We would love to surprise our 3 daughters with decorations for our stateroom door. I have bought magnet paper but I don't know where to get personalized items. I printed off Minnie ears for the door but we would also like something for each of us with our names on it.
Not picky at all of what it might be, so anything someone could make or anywhere someone could suggest I go online for this I would really appreciate it.
Here are the names if someone could make it:
Jason (Dad)
Kathy (ME...Mom)
Kaitlyn (9 years old, girl) very girly
Meghan (8 years old, girl) very athletic, gymnast
Makenzie (2 years old, girl) totally into ALL THINGS MINNIE and MICKEY

I hope someone can help.

Thank you from a Mom trying to make this the best vacation ever for her family.

Kathy

Thank also for posting this. This is my second trip on the DCL and the first time I thought the door decorating was so neat.

Tape Tension

Are you sure about this. We were just on the Dream to celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary and we had 4 rooms next to each other and my sister, being the scraper that she is made all the rooms signs with Disney characters (Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder, Cinderella and Prince Charming) and hung them on the walls using tape and we never got any notice, are cabin steward actually complemented us on our decorations. Maybe some of the staff is just more lenient than others.

Can someone tell me where you can purchase the magnets to go on the doors. I am going on my second cruise on the Disney fantasy in November and I would like to make magnets for our group. The first cruise in April was totally fab. Our 2 girls had an inside stateroom with the fancy porthole and that was just totally fun to watch the characters in the porthole. Food was much better than most ships also. Thanks for any direction you can give me.

I made mine. Printed off graphics from assorted sites including here on the DIS. Added peel and stick magnets I purchased at Michael's Craft store and we were good to go. I will try to post a photo later. We got home about midnight last night and I am still catching up on emails etc.

As you might imagine, it is very important to us to keep our facilities looking their best for all our guests.

As part of our commitment to this area of focus, we ask that guests no longer affix anything to their stateroom door utilizing any adhesive or tape.

We have found that these adhesives damage the finish on the stateroom doors and therefore ask that guests limit door decoration to those of the magnetic variety.
Unofficially, what I'm hearing is that DCL is considering the possibility of levying surcharges on people who damage the door finish with adhesives. They're trying to avoid that because the really do appreciate the passion and creativity that people are putting into this, but the issue with the finishes coming off the doors is getting to be a real issue. I know some have already received this notice on-board the ship, but I wanted to make sure it's out there for everyone.

Thanks,
Pete
Thanks for the info

We use a bazillion magnets and FE with never an item removed. We do have our names on the best ear decorations in metallic ink. But, all of our little decorations have yet to be molested. It would be a sad trend for this to begin happening. Let's hope there are more of us good guys.

My mom made the magnets for our Magic cruise last year. She bought magnet paper, printed out customized Disney characters on paper, Glued the pictures to the magnet paper, then cut them out. We celebrated my birthday on our cruise too and my mom made a magnet that went around our porthole. It was Minnie's ears, with a party hat that said Happy Birthday!
