Box them up? Just wondering how to avoid getting the ribbons tangled. Thanks
I pack them in individual ziplock bags to keep the strings from getting tangled

Are you allowed to use stuff that sticks onto the doors?

Question about decorations

I was at POP two years ago, and decorated my window with lights and signs..however, Mouskeeping unplugged the lights. They were not on, just plugged in...is this the norm?? We got nervous because noone said anything so we took them down. Are lights allowed?

THANKS

We had lights up on two windows (corner room) last November at POR and never had an issue. We had them plugged up to a timer so they came on each evening but were off during the day. I haven't heard of anyone else having their lights unplugged ~ maybe it was just that particular mousekeeper?

Maybe they unplugged them to vacuum the room, but forgot to plug them back in?

Me too!!! Works SUPER well. I had mine numbered so that I knew what string went where and used the contact mini hooks. Use fishing wire, that works well just don't get the really thin one cause it tangles more.

Hello! I'm new to the DISboards so I'm going to share some info and ask some questions. I'm taking my parents for their first ever Disney trip. I've been 3 times but as a chaperone for a school trip and we always stayed off disney property. This trip we will be staying at Pop and looking to go all out. Can anyone tell me if there is a shelf in the window for little figurines?
Also some tips on stuff I bought for anyone looking to get stuff.
None of the Home Depots or Lowes down here (south texas) have the Mickey head paint samples. Walmart still has the paint, but paint samples are just rectangles. In the bday party stuff at Walmart they have "room transformation" kits that have hanging strings of decorations and ones that just stick on walls. I got a princess kit and Mickey kit and each were $6.49. By far my best deal was Dollar Tree that had little mickey, Minnie, Donald and goofy figurines, several coloring books and even these kids work books with printed in color pictures. I'm planning to cut out the characters from the workbooks to decorate.

Yes there is a window ledge that will hold your figurines. It is fairly wide so you shouldn't have any problems. If you look at some older posts you will be able to get a better idea of how wide it is. Hope you have a great trip filled with pixie dust!

Thank you! Thank you!

I've rounded up some small toys representing my parents and I and wanted to make sure they fit somewhere in the room before they made a 21 hour journey over there!

We are headed to POR this fall and I'd love to decorate for Halloween & our daughter's b-day. There are some great ideas and very creative people on this thread!

We are staying in the Royal Rooms and I'm wondering what the window are like there? (We've only ever stayed at POP). Any pics of POR windows? Thanks!

Also, will magnets stick to the doors?

Hi! We stayed at POR last year in a Royal Guest Room (you will love it!). Here are a couple pics of our window and door (yes, magnets will stick to the door).
