    I usually stay at the All Star Resorts when I go to Disney. I love having window "decorating wars" with others in the hotel. Last year we had so much stuff in our window you could not even see the curtain. I am so upset because the pictures did not turn out :confused3 Last year we had 2 big towels, one of Jessica and one of Mickey and all of the stuff we bought in the window. We had glasses and pins, and banners, it got out of hand... LOL :rotfl: Someone next to us had lights, I never thought of doing that but there is always next year ;)
    Does anyone have any pictures of their "decorated windows" at Disney??
    And also I was wondering if the other hotels offer the big "showcase" style windows to decorate?

    During Star Wars weekends we put some of our stuff in the window. I probably shouldn't have put my new Indiana Jones license plate in there BUT, Harrison Ford WAS in a Star Wars movie :goodvibes

    My DD and I stayed at CBR in August for a 3v3 Soccer tournament and we decorated our window. I printed out pictures of each of the players, mounted them on scrapbook paper and taped them to the window. We also made signs saying "Good Luck" "Go Warriors FC" and carton pictures of girls playing soccer with their names. On the door, I made a magnetic sign with a group picture of the girls when they won the tournament to qualify for Nationals.

    Needless to say, we had alot of visitors at our window looking at the pictures. Just remember to keep your blind/sheers closed or you will have people looking into your window. It also makes it easy for you to find your room :rolleyes:

    We are staying at POFQ for Xmas and I am taking static clings and signs/door magnets wishing everyone a happy holiday as well as lights for our window. Stop by and see us!!

    Oh buy the way, I did clean the window before we left so we didn't make any extra work for the mousekeepers ::MickeyMo

    cyndibelle - I'll be looking for your lights. We'll be at Pop 09/30-10/09, too! My DD has a Pluto and Tigger that we may put in our window. Haven't really thought of anything else yet. Does anyone ever write on their window with those window markers?

    We decorated our window at POP back in December of 2003. We had window clings of skating penguins. It was cute, but unfortunately, the photos didn't turn out well. But, we have plans to decorate the window at CSR this year and there will be a little lime green there too. Maggie

    I will! We are not doing MNSSHP. We've never done one and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll regret that decision. The idea just didn't seem to excite our family that much and, of course, you have the additional expense for the 4 of us to go. I've gone over budget already on this trip!! (I'm surprising my DH and DS with a round of golf at The Magnolia!) :ssst:

    Now, if they don't expect golf every trip after this, we may have to do the party next time. :scratchin

    And, yes, I'm veeeerrrrrrrry excited!!

    What are gel gems????? Love all these ideals. We're going late Dec and will be there till Christmas Day. We're staying at POFQ, so don't think we can decorate the balcony. Would like to have a small table tree and lights for the window. How did your suction cup work on the door? Are the doors metal, and are they at all of the resorts do you know??? Would also love to put a little wreath on the door. My DH is going to die when he hears of all of this. Since we will be there for Christmas, I am not doing much decorating at home. So this will take the place. HEE! HEE! :banana: :banana: :banana:
    Thanks! :flower:

    Wow - we normally get some Disney themed window clings. I found some Pooh characters (fall leaves style) at the food store. I normally place a few in the windows and on the mirrors.

    LIME GREEN Mickey Head - what a great idea.
    How about buying Lime Green poster board paper.
    Cut out a Mickey head. Punch one hole to neat the top
    of Mickey's head - or one at the top of each ear.
    Make sure the Mickey head will fit in your suitcase. Pack it on the bottom.
    Buy at the $1 store, plastic suction cup hooks to use on the window.
    Hang the lime green poster board in the window - or sliding glass doors.

    You can always hang the Lime Green Mickey head to the side, by the curtain so it does not obstruct your view.

    You'll be able to see your room better, than the Mickey head paint chips.
    The paint chips would be hard to see if you have a 5th or 8th floor room at a deluxe resort.

    I have tied a red/white/blue bandana to the balcony railing
    so we could point out our room from the ground.

    If everyone does the Lime Green Mickey head - it would look great from the ground of the Y/BC, GF, WL, Contemp... but you best place something else
    on the balcony - or you will not know which Lime Green Mickey head is your room !
