There is a DISign forum over on the main page, way down at the bottom under the "Just for Fun" section. Find something you like and ask if someone can personalize it - or not. There is no charge for this. Save it to your computer and print it out. Put magnets on the back and you have a magnet for your door. But be careful - it's very addicting! Just like everything associated with the Mouse!

I never knew people did this. I'm so new to this whole Disney cruising thing!
Have you ever had anything stolen and do MOST doors have this??? I have read that sometimes things do get "lifted." But I have not had anything happen to mine in two cruises. No, MOST doors do NOT have these decorations. We do it just for fun and to make it a bit easier to find your room in that looooong hallway of look-a-like doors.
I have nothing to put on when we go You can also get the Mickey heads from Home Depot, cut them out and put a magnet on them. You can put your names on them and tape curling ribbon on them and pull the ribbons together to make like a bunch of balloons. Be creative and have fun!

These doors are awesome!! Great ideas.

I just went to the UPS store and had our disigns (all from the cruise magnet thread) printed in colour on cardstock. There are 15 in all so I hope that is enough. They only cost 60 cents each and they look amazing!!! I am going to go to Home Depot too and grab a few small Mickey heads for extra stuff. I love the idea of making them into balloons.


I also went to Michaels and bought some of the pre painted wooden pirate/beach decorations. DH and I put some magnets on the back and voila!!! They look great


Do clingy plastic window decorations stick to the doors? I am using them to decorate my window at WDW so if they will work I may have a few more items for the door!!

I am going to need 50 suitcases to get all our stuff down to the Dis!!!

Great Idea! Card would be fantastic and much more stable. I got some cheap photo paper so I'm also thinking of printing onto there as well to then stick onto magnets as the surface will be better. I hope our pathetic OfficeWorks store has something magnetic

Yes, the doors are magnetic. DCL doesn't want you to put "stickers" on the doors (for obvious reasons, ie hard to remove), but anything magnetic will do just fine. Some people print designs to card stock and stick "strip" magnets to the back. Others laminate their designs and use strip magnets on the back. Others still (us included) use our inkjet printer to print designs onto magnet-backed paper, available at many office supply stores (Staples, Office Max, etc.)

I've only done it once, but nothing was stolen. I'm sure it happens, but I'm not too worried about it.

Most doors DO NOT have decorations. Some will have "happy anniversary" or "happy birthday" on them (I think supplied by DCL), and I've seen quite a few DVC magnets (provided by DVC?), but most doors are not decorated.

Did you just print your designs at home and have someone at the UPS Store put them on cardstock? I would love to decorate our door but have no clue where to begin. I did find a few designs I like and someone personalized them but nedd to get them into signs fast, we cruise in 2 weeks.

Hi! I have done both - card stock and magnet sheets.

The magnet sheets (picked up at Office Max) are WAY easier (just print them out on the printer) but a lot more expensive. I think some people have bought them through Ebay cheaper - but I just went and bought five 8"x11" sheets in a pack - Avery brand - for $9.95.

For the card stock ones, I bought a large pack of SelfSeal laminating sheets (also at OfficeMax) and card stock at Michaels (in the scrapbooking section), and some adhesive magnetic strips (Michaels). I printed the designs onto cardstock, and stuck the laminate sheets on each side, and trimmed to fit. Then I stuck the magnetic strips on the back. More time consuming, but cheaper than the magnet sheets and they look GREAT!

Have fun!

I put the images onto a flash drive and took it to the store. The owner opened them up on the computer and sent them to the printer. They came out amazing!!! I can't believe the quality of the pictures. They can be laminated but I am just going to leave them as is. We are going to put peel and stick magnets on the back when we get on the ship and put them on the door.

As far as the magnet paper goes... I bought 3 sheets for $9.99 at Michaels and used a 40% off coupon so they only cost $6.00. It was a good deal but I took them back because the above idea worked much better and was much cheaper in the long run.

Here's Ours

There is some really nice work here. We got carried away and had a different set for each day. A few would come and go. Some were specifically for that day. Only one stayed up all week. We had a lot of fun putting these together
