I know that most people don’t have to mention their décor when they have guests over. They don’t say, “just to let you know, my house is decorated with a mid-century modern style” as part of the invitation. So why do I tell people before I invite them over that my house is Disney decorated? I try to avoid the “I can’t believe how much Disney stuff you have” conversation with those who just don’t get it.
It started out in my 20’s when I had my first place. I had a few mugs, maybe a poster or two and some bedding. I was happy to have my own space to decorate just the way I wanted. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend, but I loved every piece I had. Most of my stuff was hand me downs from my parent’s house, or cheap trinkets that I could afford at the time.
With maturity and a decent job, my collection has grown. It’s a far cry from what it used to be and includes some more ‘collectible’ items vs. the mugs and toothbrush holder I had. Disney decorating has become another addiction!
Now my house is overrun with Disney stuff, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Every piece of cutlery or dishes I own has Mickey ears. From serving plates to my kettle, it’s all Mickey.
All artwork on my walls has some reference to Walt, Mickey or a Disney attraction or film.
Behind my front door you will find a photo of me as a ghost along with a sign that welcomes foolish mortals. The bathrooms have a little more subtle touch. I have Mickey hands that hold all of my towels and soaps. The alarm clock in my bedroom is Mickey colors, but it’s Donald Duck singing that wakes me up in the morning!
Can you have too much Disney in your house? I don’t think so, I think I need more! There’s used to be a great store in Disney Springs that was perfect for home décor. Sadly it’s not there anymore and you have to visit ALL the different Disney stores for collectibles. Check out what D-Living used to have, I miss it!
