Disney Decor in your Home?

Do you decorate your home with Disney touches? I have a few things here and there. Check out my photos:

The countdown chart is long gone, but the Mickey photo collage and several paint chips are still on this wall:

I collect quite a few David Doss Disney prints. My newest came 2 weeks ago--The Beach Club print! Love it!

I have scattered Mickeys around the house. Nothing too "in your face" but quite a few. Kids love to look around and see all the Mickeys, lol.

We built our house 3 years ago and it has columns on the front of the house that have tapered wood columns ate the top and stacked mtn. stone at the base of the columns with a hidden Mickey on two of them. One big one facing out and one little one facing inside the porch. Here's a link to the pics: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....n+house&page=2

I have it blaring Mickey. My aunt wasnt too fond of it at first when I brought my stuff to Texas, but it's growing on her... as long as it stays in my room. She even let me hang my mickey door. Most of my wardrobe is Disney related.

When I still lived in Florida, you could tell it was a home of a cast member.

I have a few touches around the house. My dishes are black and white sketches of the Fab Five, I have a Belle piggy bank, a carved box based on the stained windows of Beauty and the Beast, a vase covered in the Mary Blair mural from the Contemporary, and a bulletin board where I use Disney pins to pin things up.

My sister just got her first apartment and has some Mary Blair Small World prints up. I'm thinking of getting her more and one of the stretching portraits in the Haunted Mansion for Christmas/birthday.

I love being reminded of the happiest place on Earth at home!

Let's see...

In our family room, we have a "Jungle Book" Lamp & a Tiki Mickey desk accessory set on our desk. I also have a zebra Mickey head photo frame w/ a picture of us in Animal Kingdom on a end table. And, on our most recent trip, we purchased the Larry Dodson Animal Kingdom Savanna print for the family room.

Our playroom is a Pirates of the Caribbean/Peter Pan theme. We also have an "The Incredibles" movie poster hanging in the playroom. (It doesn't really match the "theme" so it hangs on the staircase wall.)

Our main bath is decorated in a "Mickey at the Beach" theme. I have 3 of the David Doss Mickey sand pail prints - I NEED that Poly print! I hang Mickey Mouse towels in this bathroom. I also have the Jim Shore "Steamboat Willie" figurine in this bath along w/ a Finding Nemo seagulls figurine. We also have a wastebasket, soap dispensor, wire basket (for extra toilet paper), & a bowl & pitcher that are Mickey Mouse in this bathroom. We ave a shelf in this bathroom as well where we display our Mickey ear hats & hang our pin lanyards. And I have some Mickey Mouse Christmas decorations that I use in this bathroom at Christmas.

In our bedroom, I have the Jim Shore "Off to Neverland" figurine.

In the kitchen, I have a couple of Disney World magnets on the fridge.

We have several Disney World christmas ornaments for our family room Christmas tree.

I think that's it - mainly it's our main "Mickey at the Beach" bathroom, a little here & there in our family room, & our pirate-themed playroom.

I don't do any Disney decorating except at Halloween. Halloween was the first trip we took with DS10 when he was 5 . Halloween at Disney is AWESOME, I put out Disney Halloween decorations, just bought a new little Mickey ghost for yard at Walgreens today , was going to buy a lighted Mickey vampire to hang on my fire place screen, but they were out . I will have to hit another Walgreens tomorrow . I bought a few things while we were in WDW that year, I put those goodies out too.

I do have several Disney kitchen items though, drink stirrers , pot holders , cookbooks , pancake mickey head maker, Mickey head wine stopper . I pick up Disney ornaments for Christmas tree every trip and a magnet for each resort we stay in . Can't wait to go back in April, think I need Mickey head spatula and maybe a topiary frame for garden If I can find one.

I only have two bathrooms in current home, when we build or buy again in a few years , if there will def be a 3rd bath, it will be a Mickey theme for sure even though I am not a character decorating kind of girl.

I love using Disney wall decals in my kids' rooms. We usually end up with a Toy Story or Nemo theme (their favorites) but we have hung decals of the traditional Disney characters as well.

We have a WDW guest room. Mickey comforter/sheet set, signs with quotes from Walt Disney on them, shelves with autograph books/fab 5 statues, ride and character dining pics on the walls, and we have our pin collection displayed on the wall. It is my favorite room in the house.

We bought a set of bamboo coasters a couple of weeks ago.


DH wants to make some wall art using Disney pins but he hasn't done much with it in months.

I would love to do something with the pins I have collected over the years. I have tried a few things but the pins become too heavy. I have an extra bedrrom now that the kids have started growing up and moving away. I was thinking of turning it in to my own special Disney spot... I don't want to wish my children away into adulthood, but once the boys are not living here their bathroom will be done in black, white and red's with Mickey thrown in there. My grandchildren will love it and I have already started picking things up. I found a set of 4 Mickey washcloths at Walmart one day in black white and red. I am going to frame them for wall art.

I, unfortunately, am not crafty. But I do love little touches of WDW in the house. I don't need a lot. Heck, hidden Mickey's here and there would be fine too. Just subtle would be good, just not crafty enough to figure out how to do it!
