Does anyone know if you can put magnets on the room doors? Do you have to have a timer on the lights?
Hi! You should be able to use magnets on the door. we hung a dry erase board on the front of our door. we got lots of cute messages from people passing by and from our mousekeeper. It was hung up by magnets. And i don't think you HAVE to use a timer, but it would be good idea too, just for safety reasons. I am totally speculating, but i would think mousekeeping might unplug them during they day if they were left on. Hope this helps!

I've decorated our window with lights any time of the year. It gets some very cool notes on the dry erase board. My only problem was one stay Sept 2013 with a group of (I think) Cheerleaders from Argentina. They were running amuck in POP and came up to our floor and drew some distasteful images on the dry eraseboard. We were sleeping and got awoken by them. I thought they were leaving a normal message. I am all for being a kid and being silly but, drawing a gentleman's private parts is not cool. I wound up taking down the dry erase board. They left the pen uncapped and it dried out. :-(

Maybe it was a spirit stick.

I'm making a poster that will have Haunted Mansion font. I printed out a "death certificate" to my fathers youth from doombuggies.com....I got a license plate with his name made by a wonderful disigner RustMan (great stuff!) I also have purple christmas lights and using a few other things that we already have. Still working on ideas....it's actually kinda difficult...lol.

I have tried suction cups with little hooks, but I am not quite sure that I like it that way. I know there are probably really good suggestions on this thread, but it has been a while since I have gone entirely through it.

There are 4 strands of flowers each on a fishing line. Each strand is hanging from a suction cup. The string of lights is also attached with suctions cups.

The fishing line is a great idea. Thanks!

I love the window! Can't wait to do this for our trip Christmas week! My family
thinks I'm nuts, but I will miss my decorations back home and need to fill the void somehow. Plan on being fun with them, not just pretty like I decorate at home though.

I have decorated before but always at resorts that have outside corridors. I wonder how easy OKW or BCV will be? Just decorate the doors? The patio doors? I would still like to do something. Just wonder what can be done.
