Christmas!!! Even at home I tend to skip the Autumn/Thanksgiving theme. I go from Halloween, take a 3 week break and then make sure my.decor is up for Thanksgiving.

Ok room decorating friends, I have two important questions and am hoping you can help me out!

I found a mini- strand of lights AND a mini timer for the lights at Walmart for less than $5 total YAY. Now the question is, I'm flying. Is TSA going to look at my luggage weird with these items in the checked/ carry on? Is checked/ carry on one better than the other?

Also- Art of Animation- or just Disney rooms in general. I've got a 6 foot extension cord…. is that going to be long enough? I have no idea where the outlets are in relationship to the windows.

Thanks in advance for any last-minute help! Will post some pictures once it all comes together later this week or when we return

No. I just took strands of lights and a timer in my checked luggage and battery operated lights in my carry on with no problem. A 6 foot extension cord should be plenty. In one room the door was to the left of the window and the plug to the left of the door. I just ran the cord up over the door frame.

I am working in my window decorations tonight!! I'm sitting here with Christmas music playing and I'm about to try to put this together. Other than tape, are there any restrictions that I need to know about? Are items with glitter on them okay if the glitter won't come off?

Fun! I've been trying to cut out one sparkly snowflake each night. You've inspired me to listen to Christmas music while I do that!

The first Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party didn't happen until Sept. 10th this year so you may be too early for Halloween decorations. But I love you idea about decorating for your anniversary!

Pop Century!

We are gearing up for our next trip and decorating our lovely window. Looks like we will have two cardboard duffys dressed as Santa, some lights, and who knows what else.

My main question is...I found a cute inflatable wreath at Target and plan on putting it on our door. Any concerns that it might go missing? Last few times no one messed with our décor, but I'm wondering if this one might be a problem. What do you all think? Should I just put inside?

I'm not hanging anything outside, but I guess you could. I would only do it if you don't care if it goes missing or not, just in case.

I know this is super old post but can someone tell me what cling film is? I would love to get some like this. What is it and where do I get it?

Just wanted to share our window and room decorations from last week at POR.

Our window



Window with lights off



Stockings



Mirror over the table



Mickey door hanger. He kept falling off the door handle every time we used the door so we hung him on a bed post


And the tree with all Disney ornaments.
