I have one and it's AMAZING!! I still need to get the Disney cartridge, though. I use it for decorating binders, scrapbooking, chore charts, fundraising signs, card making, and paper dolls for my DD.

I had SO much fun doing this last time!! I just printed a bunch of character pics from google and laminated them and stuck them in the window! And then I did a LGMH with my Dis username on it so people know I was from disboards and popped it in the corner

This time we're going for my 21st birthday and not only will I get to decorate my window, but I'll be able to decorate my Mums window too! I think I'll get a birthday banner and put it on the door, then stick up my character pics again! We'll get to Pop about 7 in the evening (if all goes well), so by the time we've had dinner and decorated the room it'll be time to sleep and let the magic begin the next day!!

Anyone have any other ideas for birthday decs??

Yup, I think I'll get the Cricut. I just think I can do so much with it - especially for school! Now I have to convince DH!

Katy, your ideas for your birthday window sound great!!! Make sure you post pictures!!!

So glad I found this thread. I have been making posters and planning window and door decorating for our trip this summer to Disney. We're staying at the All Star Movie resort and I can't wait! I have Mickey head I made on my computer in all types of sizes and colours. A couple of posters with the year and what we are celebrating. Trying to decide on what else to do. But this thread has given me a few more ideas!

Here is what I have so far:

My husband I will be at AKL kidani for his birthday. I LOVE the idea of people leaving messages although Im not sure how well it will do since the door to our room possibly wont have alot of traffic. Any other ideas how I can decorate the room and make it special? Or how I can get more people to respond? Id love to have the door covered by the end of the week. TIA

Has anybody decorated their room at a non-Disney hotel? What about leaving decorated envelopes for housekeeping tips? Even though it's not Disney property, I think it would still be a fun surprise!

There are actually two Mickey cartridges you can use. I just made 200 heads (red and green also) for our trip in under 10 minutes the one I use is the Mickey Font Cart.
