If you are going on a Disney Cruise Line cruise for the first time, you may not realize that many cruisers decorate their stateroom doors. The doors are magnetic, and with just a little bit of work, you can put together some great things to decorate your Disney Cruise Line stateroom door. It’s a fun way to celebrate your family vacation, and an easy way to spot your stateroom door.
Disney Cruise Door Magnets
Finding Graphics For your Disney Cruise Door Magnets
You can certainly create your own graphics, especially if you are familiar with using PicMonkey or Photoshop. There are many different Facebook groups with designers offering really fun designs (often for free). You can also choose to purchase custom graphics from the many sellers on Etsy that offer them.
Here are some of our favorites:
Printing and Preparing Your Graphics For Your Disney Cruise Line Door Magnets
Almost all of these resources listed above will provide you with a digital file to print out yourself. While some people choose to print them directly on magnet sheets, I prefer a stronger magnet. I print out the graphics on regular printer paper, laminate them with my laminator, cut them out, and then attach magnets. I put all of my custom stateroom door decorations in a folder to keep them from bending. On the first day of our Disney Cruise, I carry them in my day bag so we can decorate our door as soon as we were able to get into our stateroom.
White Board for Your Disney Cruise Door
A whiteboard is great to have, especially if you’ll have family members headed off in different directions. This year, silver, gold, and platinum Castaway Club members received a small whiteboard as a gift, but if this is your first cruise, you’ll want to bring your own. (Note, in 2015, 2016, and 2017) Castaway Club members did not receive this gift).
