Planning Our Next Disney Vacation--Decorating Our Stateroom DoorI

Image of our Disney Cruise Itinerary


We are counting down to our next Disney trip even though we are still in triple digits!  The upcoming Disney vacation will include a 5 night sailing on the beautiful Disney Dream followed by 3 days at Walt Disney World.

One thing we look forward to is decorating our stateroom door on the ship.  Guests are allowed to use magnets to hang pictures, etc. on their stateroom door.  One thing I like to add to our door decorations is a map of our itinerary.  Those same maps can be used in scrapbooks and photo books and can be found and “saved as. . .” from the Disney Cruise Line web-site and is okay to do for personal use. Here's the link where I found mine.


Decorating the stateroom door is a fun way to personalize your stateroom and makes it easier to find in the long corridors lined with stateroom doors.  We found others taking a peek at the various pictures, etc. hung on our door.  And, it was fun for us to see how others had decorated their doors.


Magnetic strips or magnetic tape with peel off backing that stick directly to your decorations work great as the magnets can be cut to size and some guests print images on magnetic sheets.  I attach the magnets before we leave home and pack the decorations in the zipper pocket inside the lid of a carry-on suitcase so we can decorate as soon as we have access to our stateroom.


My favorite part of the map image is the loop at Castaway Cay which represents two stops at Disney Cruise Line’s private island in The Bahamas.  Castaway Cay is a bit of paradise and never fails to amaze and delight.  After our last cruise, our 4th, we could boast four stops at Castaway Cay, but after this next cruise, hopefully we can say we’ve been to Castaway Cay 6 times!  I say “hopefully” as Castaway Cay is the most often missed port due to wind/weather.  I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

The Disney dreaming continues as plans come to fruition and the days draw closer to our trip.  Yes, I’m definitely much happier with a Disney trip in our future, definitely!
