Happy September! Like promised in my last post, I’m slowly starting to share more Disney Cruse Line related posts. Today’s post is all about Disney Cruise Line’s stateroom doors. More specifically, how Disney fans go above and beyond to decorate said door. This is actually my third post about DCL stateroom doors (you can check out the first post here and the second post here).
One of my favorite things to do on the first night of a Disney Cruise is explore the ship and go around to each floor to look at everyone’s stateroom doors. People really go all out decorating these doors. Some people buy magents from Etsy, make things themselves or even buy stuff from the Cruises gift shops to decorate their doors.
Here’s a few cute doors from my last Disney Cruise:
As you can see with this door, not all the magnets have to be “Disney” themed. Amazon and craft stores sell magnet packs for a decent price. A lot of the time people will decorate their stateroom doors with random cruise themed magnets and then sprinkle a few Disney characters in too.
I’m so glad my favorite characters, Chip ‘n Dale, are finally getting more love and recognition.
A lot of times families have joining rooms or multiple staterooms in their party. I always think it’s so cute when the multiple stateroom doors have a matching theme. In the staterooms above (based on the Fish Extenders you can assume) the parents are in the “Elsa” room and the kids are in the “Anna” room.
Speaking of families having multiple Disney Cruise Line Stateroom doors and having a common theme. This family was celebrating one of their childrens’ sweet sixteen and the parents 25th anniversary. Outside the two staterooms was a whiteboard where they asked fellow cruisers to vote on which door was better.
Which one would you have voted for?
I really liked how this stateroom door was decorated with our specific cruise itinerary. They had a little cruise ship magnet that they would move to match which port we were in each day. The day I took this picture it was a sea day and we were heading to Castaway Cay.
Another guest had a dry erase board outside their stateroom where they would put little sayings each day. On this day we were docked in Grand Cayman.
I thought this door was so adorable! I love all the bought/custom magnets that people get but there’s just something about the homemade/handmade decorations that I really love!
This was actually the first Disney Cruise where we didn’t do Fish Extenders. If you’re confused or don’t know what Fish Extenders are, make sure to check out my Fish Extenders 101 post.
We love a Disney/Star Wars door!
I thought this door was so interesting because I’ve never really seen anyone decorate their stateroom door with stuff from the Christopher Robin movie before.
More handmade cuteness! It’s literally plates, how clever.
I thought this door was cute because my car’s name is Baymax (and I love Baymax/collect Big Hero 6 Disney Pins) and my mom’s name is Lilo.
It’s the lights for me!
And now we’ve come to the grand finale. This had to be one of my favorite stateroom doors. I love how they decorated their stateroom door with the Disney nuiMOs. How freaking adorable is that?!! I 100% want to steal this idea for my next Disney Cruise but I don’t collect/have any nuiMOs. But this idea is SO cute.
