Spiffing up the Hotel Room

Hello, Linerville! Do any of you do something special to decorate your hotel rooms at WDW, to make them feel extra special? I’m not talking practical things (liquid pump soap, hamper, over the door hanger, etc.) I’m thinking about the impractical fun stuff to celebrate. :slight_smile:

In the past, for a December trip at Pop, we decorated our window with tinsel and window-clings. I am thinking that on our next trip, I might bring a string of Christmas tree lights too. I’m also thinking of bringing a special scent for the room…

But looking for other fun (low-cost, not too complicated) suggestions! :slight_smile:

Window clings are always easy and cheap, Not sure how wide the sill is but you can usually get very inexpensive little trees. We plan on doing this too for the POR half of our stay but haven’t really started thinking about specifics yet.

This will be my first time decorating my room.
It will be our 20th anniversary, I bought a happy anniversary banner, and I took some black posterboard, cut out mickey heads, and I will paste pictures of us on the mickey heads and put them around the room.
Since we are close to Halloween, I bought some static Cling Webs for the window and a large pack of Halloween decorations of various sizes to place all over the room.

I have a disposable tape dispenser and some fun tac set aside for decorating.

I saw a room decorated with Christmas (or I guess they were really Halloween) lights at Bay Lake Tower last week. Always think I should do something like that to know which hotel room is mine when I see it from the ground (though that’s not much of an issue where I normally stay in the value resorts!

Walmart had Disney Character halloween window things that came with suction cups last year. I’m sure they’ll have xmas ones too. We made out own window clings last year.

We didn’t decorate, but saw lots of cute windows at Pop last September. Some people had their doors decorated too, but most that we saw had signs/clings/stuffed characters in the window ledges. I enjoyed looking at them!

I had so much fun looking at the decorated windows at Pop! One person had an insane collection of Vinylmation on what must have been a custom-made shelf. Others made little scenes and displayed their stuffies. I will never rise to this level of creativity, but I love that other people do!

Yes, this is one of the things I LOVE about Pop around any holiday – the way people get into decorating really sets a festive mood! :smile:
On chat months (if not years?) ago, I remember reading a list of rules about decorating. You know, be good to housekeeping… I think “no tape” might have been one of the things Disney says so you don’t tear up the room. (So I used suction cup hooks on the window instead.) Anybody else know some of those rules to share?

I’ve read the rules a couple of years ago and I couldn’t find a good way to hang things other than suction cups or clings. But tape would be so much easier? Is it really not allowed?

I used scotch tape on my October visit last year, I did not have any problems at all from any staff. I just made sure to remove all traces of the tape when I was packing.
