We are going right after Thanksgiving this year and my sister wants to decorate our window at POFQ. What do you think would be good, or tasteful to put in the windows there? Another thing is how do you put stuff in the windows? How do you hang everything without it messing up the window or walls around it? Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!

We are going to CSR from Dec 2-9 and I plan on decoraating our window for Christmas. Is anyone else going to be there around that time? I hope we aren't the only ones decorated while we are there. I look forward to going around to the different resorts and seeing all the Christmas decorations. I can't believe we only have 35 days before we go!!!! It feels like it will never get here!

we stayed there last year before halloween and decorated our windows. i bought a pack of suction cup hooks at the dollar tree and hung our decorations from them. we've also done those gel window stickers. I remember being disappointed that my window was so big and my decorations so small. I know I took photos, but can't find them now. I know you have a double window, but can't remember how big it actually is.

we'll be there december 11th and i plan on decorating our window and my parents window. we saw tons of windows decorated - lots of fun to wander around and check out windows!!

Some neat ideas in this thread (though I have not gotten through the whole thing yet!)

Does anybody know the dimensions of the ASMo windows?

Thanks!!

The doors at AKL have an African shield on them that takes up a lot of room. You could put things around it, but I'm not sure if it's metal or not. It's also pretty dark in the hallways so your decorations might not show up very well.

Click link and scroll down to see photos of the doors:

I'd bring clings to decorate the sliding glass doors to the balcony instead.

They are not metal. Didn't see any decorations on the doors any of the 6 times we have been there. We did see into rooms that had decorations on the sliding doors.

I love the idea of the green Mickey heads....Home Depot here I come!
What great ideas!!!
