Usually 6 nights/7 days. Maybe longer in the future:mickey:

Twice it was for 10 days and once it was for 8 days.:mickey:

We've run the gamut - from 3 nights/4 days to (what is becoming our norm) 10 nights/11 days.

The shorter trips have been either 'spur of the moment' or rented DVC points trips and just haven't seemed like enough to make it worthwhile....

Can't wait until mid-September and our next 10 night trip!!

Our longest was 9 days, & our shortest was our first trip at 5 days, this year it will be 8 days. We definitely enjoy the longer trips, more down time. We really enjoy when we can take a day off mid trip just to relax & recharge!

My most recent trips have been 4-6 nights, but I've never done anything longer than a week. I really want to do a week to 10 days sometime soon, but I don't know when that is going to happen.

Ours is normally from a Friday to the following Sunday. I need all the Disney time I can get.

We usually do six days- Sun-Fri, to use less DVC points then go back a second time for another 5 or 6 days. So although we do 6 days we go 2X per year so I guess we actually do 12 days per year.

We try for 8 or 9 days, but we'll take what we can afford! :mickey:

never less than 8 days, but usually 10, that way we get at least 2 full days in each park.

Stayed as long as 6 days, but my usual trips are 3 days at the parks with a half-day for travel on either end.

It's been over 20 years since I was able to take more than a week of vacation at one time. Job and cash-flow dictate short bursts of time off.

But, I'm lucky to be able to go at all :D.

We used to go for a week, but with the MYW ticket prices for 10 days being so reasonable, we can stay longer.

04-13-2010, 01:06 PM
We usually plan 10 days/10 nights now that we have little ones. We actually hit the parks all 10 days.The day we arrive is usually spent shopping at DTD.

Our longest was 12 nights this past Nov., and our shortest was a 2 night stay as a surprise to our children after our vacation at Disney's Vero Beach resort. Most of our trips, however, fall in the 7-10 night range.

We normally do 8 days in WDW. DW and I try to get a couple of days, just the two of us (when possible) and a longer trip with the family.

We have tried as short as 4nights/5days and as long as 9 nights/10 days but we actually prefer 7nights/8days or 8nights/9days. Any more than that and we start to miss our dogs! We also somehow just don't want to be there anymore at that point - we are ready to go home.

We usually do 9 or 10 days now. We started out with 4-5, moved up to 7, then up to the current number. :)

We seem to pick 10 nights most of the timenow. Our first trip we did the 3 nights 4 days and it just wasn't long enough. Then we moved up to a week and now we seem to have found 10 nights to be the best for our family. Enough time to do everyhting we want to do and some time to just relax and enjoy the resort:)
