Photos of Guest Decorated Windows

There seem to be a lot of WDW guests who like to decorate their resort room window on the first night of arrival. I have heard lots of ideas and I have a few floating around in my head. But...I am a visual kinda gal.

So if you have pictures of your resort window or of someone else's window...please post them here! Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing some creativity...

Do folks do this just at Christmas, or all the time?

Thanks, Kristineamb, for posting your pics! I really like the white lights in the window. If I go with my Tinkerbell theme...I am thinking I will use white lights as well, but I need them to "twinkle".

The window appears to be "deep", too, which is nice for decorating. This is at Pop, right?

All the time...especially Halloween, Christmas, etc...
Pop Christmas 2007...we had three rooms in a row...decorated each...
Thanks for your complements...
I was actually embarrassed to post pictures of my pathetic efforts...
I have seen much more elaborate, creative displays...

Pathetic effort? No way, Kristineamb! I think your decorations are inviting and fun. I don't want to make it complicated, but I am an elementary school teacher...and I am often accused of going a bit overboard on this kind of thing! :lmao

But what can l say-I only get to do Disney once every few years. So I am going all out!

Thanks again!
Don't forget an extenstion cord for your lights...and I brought timers so our lights would be on when we got back to our room at night!

I'd love to see some pics too. What about rooms like at AKL? Will anyone but the giraffes see your windows? Do you just decorate the door instead? This is all new to me!

As for myself, I'd say every time. I didn't the first time, but have since then. It does help you to find your room if staying in a mod or value. You can buy static cling at an office supply store and print off clip art of your favorite characters.
