Decorating Resort Room Window

Does anyone decorate their window at their resort so that you can see yours easily as your going by? If so, how do you decorate it?

Many decorate their windows for the holidays, be it Halloween, T-giving, or Christmas.
It is probable done more at the moderate and value resorts, but I have seen it at the DeLuxes as well. At Christmastime, lots of people also have christmas lights in their room or on the balcony.
If you wanted to do it at non-holiday times, I am sure it would be fine, I just haven't seen it (but I am usually there at Christmastime).
Hope this helps!

This year for St Patrick's day was the first time I was at a Value during a holiday/semi holiday. So we decorated our window for St. Pattys Day. (I am Irish BTW)

I went to a Disney Pins site and printed out the images of several St Patty's day pins. Cut the shamrocks and letters out of construction paper. Around the window sill is ribbons I bought at Walmart. Along the bottom of the window sill is shamrock confetti and in the middle of The words is an Irish Poem. Everything was taped up with transparent tape.

We were in a room facing the lake so the sun posed a problem for getting a good picture without reflection or glare. I guess it was just a bonus that we were in a room that the exterior was painted green





The first day we returned to the room after decorating we had a bunch of St Patty's Day themed towel animals. I guess our Mousekeeper got into the spirit with us

You really don't want to use any sticky item to secure your decoration to a wall or window. Unless you want to spend the time cleaning it when you leave. And some have been charged by Disney to clean the door or window when they did use tape or some other sticky item.
