    I remember that was you that gave me the dry erase board idea! Thanks! You have alot of great ideas. Were you ever weary of leaving the marker outside of the door? I am a little bit nervous of someone doing something bad with it. Also, I am nervous that noone will ever sign it!

    Hi there!!! we were afraid that no one would sign, but we didn't even come close to having that problem!!! we packed the wipe board in our carryon (since we did the DME) and we put it up before we even opened up our room!!! :banana: After we put the carry on in our room and freshened up a bit (only like 15minutes) we had 2 messages already!!!!

    As far as the marker, we didn't think twice about it. we didn't get any wierd or bad messages at all!! it was fabulous!!!

    Have fun and let us know what you do to decorate your window!!!

    SOOOO lucky!!! i wish i was going so soon!!!!

    ooo one more thing we did last year, DH just reminded me!! we only did it once, but this year we are going to have it out the whole week!!

    We bought a cheap-o punkin (pumpkin) trick-or-treat basket (.99 at Wal-Mart) and filled it with candy and left it on our door handle!! people left us messages about the treats!!! we left it out the day we went to MNSSHP.

    We figured if someone steals the basket oh well, if THAT really makes them happy it only cost us .99 and if not it would be a nice surprise for people :)

    I'm not at all crafty, but this is a really good idea. Have there been photos of examples posted on the DIS?

    the problem with covering the entire door with writeable paper is vandalism and blowing rain.

    that is the only reason i switched from sheets of paper to mickey heads.

    it would be a shame for some idiot to write a bad word in the middle of your sheet, or have a blowing rain satuate it.

    using the mickey heads on the outside of the door, works out fine for me.
    if someone writes a bad word on it, they are rushing, they cant do that to every head i have taped up.

    also, blowing rain, i can dry out the small heads.

    i do like your idea of the butcher paper/covering paper, but for me, i like the mickey heads. easy to put up, easy to store.

    i hope all of you have a great trip at the mother land. :teeth:

    These are all such great ideas!!

    I never would have thought to decorate my room/window/door. Now I need to think of something creative to do. :hyper:

    Problem is I have zero creativity. :rolleyes:
    Too bad no one has any pics of their decorated rooms or windows. Then I could just copy them! :stir: :lmao:

    I will be at the CSR with the ladies only trip from 9/28 thru 10/02. So I have time to start planning. :teeth:

    Keep the awesome ideas coming. :thumbsup2

    my little sister stocks up on soo many baby dolls in disney- of course, when we leave for the parks, she leaves her menagerie at the hotel, and believe it or not, the maids pose the toys in silly situations- like, one day, they were waiting for us when we got back, another time, they seemed to be eating at the hotel table- umm- they've been cuddled together in the hotal bed- it's adoreable!!

    Just got back from Home Depot and Snagged 45 mickey heads! woohoo!! let the collecting begin!!

    I'm too excited!!

    i'm thinking of getting some cute ribbon at Archivers (scrap booking store) and then putting holes in the heads of the mickeys and stringing them together to make some sort of garland for either the window or the door :)

    LOL This so funny because the planning for our ladies-only trip was just starting to wind down. Most of the plans had been made and it was just the long wait left.
    Now we have something to keep us busy: collecting Mickey heads and planning how to decorate our rooms. :woohoo:

    We will have ladies at POP and at CSR so there will hopefully be lots of decorated windows and doors. :thumbsup2 :cool1:
