Whether you’re dreaming of your next Castaway Cay adventure or you’ve never been on a Disney Cruise before, you can experience some of the magic of a DCL sailing at home with this stateroom door decoration kit!

The Disney Cruise Line crew is encouraging families to get into the DCL spirit by decorating “stateroom” doors at home. You can even turn it into a good-natured family competition and ask everyone in your household to decorate his or her own bedroom door in a Disney theme.

Magnetic door decorations are incredibly popular on Disney Cruises and they’re super fun to look at as you explore your Disney cruise ship. Guests on the Dream, the Fantasy, the Magic, and the Wonder all enjoy this Disney Cruise Line tradition, no matter what itinerary they’ve chosen.

The downloadable Disney Cruise Line door decoration PDF has a message from a Disney Cruise Director, who noted “One of our favorite traditions as Cruise Directors is walking through the ship and seeing stateroom doors filled with decorations.”

She continued, “With a little pixie dust, now you can keep that tradition going and bring the spirit of Disney Cruise Line onshore and into your household. Use the directions below to turn one (or all!) of the doors in your home into replicas of a Disney Cruise Line “stateroom” door!”

Start with this 1998 porthole door number, just like the ones on the Disney fleet. This particular stateroom number celebrates the year Disney Cruise Line was founded!
