I stopped county back in the early 80's when I hit one hundred (that is individual trips to the property, the number of days much more). I average 3-4 trips/year.

if you dont mind my asking do you live near Disney? ! I live in Rhode Island and i would love to go 3 times a year but that would be very expensive just the driving alone or flying runs us a pretty penny!!

we used to go twice a year, 1 week in april and 1 week in october. the past few years we have been combining and just doing one big 2 week long sha-bang!!! i prefer sticking it out the whole year and having 2 weeks then going twice at 1 week each time..

31 times staying on WDW property, numbers 32 and 33 coming up this winter.

I don't know how to get rid of my countdown that has 29 times for several months.

11-09-2004, 03:02 PM
wow!!! you rebels!!!

isnt it great, it is the best place in the world

.....people think im nuts...why dont you vaca somewhere else jenn, you always go to Disney..its for kids, how many times can you see and do the same things......

if only they knew.........

( oh well all the Disney dislikers finding out about our magical place would only make it harder for us to get our ressies if they decided to give it a try!!!! )

11-09-2004, 03:02 PM
Hey Gary...I think we met on that 29th trip!!

Go into your User Cp and then click on the profile tab and erase your signature. That should do it!

I have forgotten how many times I have been onsite...it is in my signature...but I go for several day trips every year so I think I have been to Disney well over 100 times.

11-09-2004, 03:06 PM
I've been 8 or 9 times. All offsite so far.

11-09-2004, 07:24 PM
I've been five times. One of which was when I worked there. Even though I live in FL, I'm not able to go as often as so many of you do. Financially, it's just a smart thing for DH and I to do right now. I do enjoy the times we have been and can't wait to get back in 2006.

DisneyDmbNut, I think I got rid of the 29th trip countdown, thanks for the help.

I remember that DW and I meet you and if I remember correctly, your daughter, at the fireplace at the WL last Dec.. A DISer from New York and her mother was also there.

A year goes by fast.

11-09-2004, 08:22 PM
Our upcoming trip will be my 5th trip to WDW.

#1: 1977 when I was stationed near Miami -- a buddy of mine and I pooled our money for 1 night at the Contemporary (I think it was $100/night back then and way too much for us)
#2: 1987 for our honeymoon (stayed offsite)
#3: 1993 when we took my parents and stayed at the BC
#4: Sometime in the early 90's when my company sent me to Orlando -- I had a spare afternoon and went to Epcot
#5: Two weeks away!! Staying at the YC and then the Magic!!!

As for Disneyland, there is no way to know -- probably over a humdred! It was practically my second home as a child!

Yep!! I have a picture of you... I was with my daughter and mother! Yes a year goes quick~

11-09-2004, 11:14 PM
I am not worthy! I've been 10 times, but I'm a mere amateur compared to many of you! I would go multiple times per year if I could convince my DH and one DD to give in!

11-10-2004, 05:07 AM
My DD who is 5 has started going since she was 3. She's been to Disneyland 4 times, WDW twice, the Disney Cruise twice and has also been to Disney Tokyo. We live in Taiwan.

11-10-2004, 09:12 AM
Many times off-site, never again. Ten times on property. Believe me there is a big difference.

11-10-2004, 09:48 AM
I'm not sure exactly. I started going with my parents when I was 9. I'd say we went approximately 8 times. Then, I went once in my 20's with the "women of the family (fun trip!)" so that's 9.

Okay, I think I can count this and be close. Then, I started going with my husband, starting with your honeymoon in 1994. I think this is accurate as far as how many times we've been together. We've been at least once every year, with the exception of 2000.

1994 - 1
1995 - 1
1996 - 1
1997 - 2
1998 - 2
1999 - 3
2000 - 0
2001 - 2
2002 - 2
2003 - 1
2004 - 2x already, going again for Thanksgiving - that's 3.

So that's 18 times with my hubby and 9 with my family for a grand total of 27 times! I'm 42 years old.

All Aboard
11-10-2004, 10:19 AM
Me, well over 100 times.

But, our 6 year old daughter has been 48 times (all but 3 times staying onsite.) It's a 4 hour drive for us - so we can make the trip fairly frequently.

She's stayed (including a couple of upcoming trips):

All Star Sports - 9 times, total of 22 nites
Dixie Landings - 7x, 27nites
All Star Music - 5x, 12n
All Star Movies - 4x, 22n
Coronado Springs - 4x, 9n
Animal Kingdom Lodge - 3x, 11n
Caribbean Beach - 3x, 5n
Polynesian - 3x, 9n
Contemporary - 2x, 3n
Beach Club (March, 2005) 1x, 9n
Old Key West - 1x, 8n
Wilderness Lodge - 1x, 4n
Port Orleans - 1x, 4n
Grand Floridian - 1x, 3n
Dolphin - 1x, 2n
Boardwalk Inn - (January, 2005) 1x, 2n

I have stayed at least 44 times on site at Diseny. I am 22, I try to go AT LEAST twice a year. My DS (2) has only been two times, three if you include the trip we were there and found out I was pregnant! My DH likes Disney but I am teaching him that he needs to LOVE it (cause I wouldn't mind making it three times a year)!!

11-10-2004, 02:50 PM
I wish I could've gone as many times as some of you have! Very lucky! My husband and I started going together after our honeymoon and he'd never been on vacation anywhere else (even as a child!)... but now he's caught the bug and I have to alternate "regular" vacations with Disney vacations :( It's been 4 years since my last trip but I'm hoping to get back next year! :worried:

I've been 4 times total:

1986 - Poly with parents and brother
1997 - Offsite for Honeymoon (at the now defunct Hyatt Orlando)
1999 - Dixie Landings (now POR) with money from hubby's cashed
in profit sharing money from work (i know bad! bad! bad!)
2000 - All Star Movies for Millenium Celebration
2005 - POP with friends hopefully?

We just bought my husband's grandmother's house from my brother-in-law (he took it over when she was put into a nursing home a few years ago). Unfortunately all the work he put into it was done half-a$$ed so it's been one chunk of money we don't have after another. I'm desperately hoping that since I don't plan to go "HOME" until next year at this time, I'll have enough time to save up the money to go, but I'm watching us slip farther into debt and am starting to lose hope. :worried: I could definitely use some pixie dust and prayers that I can do this... and that eventually I can rack up the amount of trip numbers that you all have! hahahaha

Thanks!! Didn't mean for that to turn into a babble but there you are... haha :o

11-10-2004, 03:11 PM
Seven trips since 1996.

11-10-2004, 03:20 PM
I've been 13 times so far:

2000 (3 times)--GF/BWI, offsite, WL
2002 (2 times)--AKL, Poly/YC
2003 (2 times)--BC, GF/BWI/Pop

stopped counting after 40 trips! (four this year alone, and my annual pass is valid until February):earseek:

11-10-2004, 04:47 PM
I made my DD wait until she was 6 before we started going to WDW (I'd only been once, when I was pregnant with her & we stayed offsite). She's now 13 & this Dec., it'll be our 23rd trip onsite!:p
35 days & counting til WL & BC!:cool:

11-10-2004, 05:03 PM
So far I can count 20 trips off the top of my head. These trips have included Disneyland, Disney Tokoyo, The Big Red Boat (b4 Disney Cruise Line), my honeymoon, almost every anniversary, holidays - like Christmas, New Years, especially Thanksgiving. I like to watch people eat those huge turkey legs. It's so funny to me.:p :hyper: :p

If I sat down to think about it probably 50+ times. In fact, I'm planning a trip for Feb. 2005.


11-10-2004, 05:12 PM
My first trip was in 1980 with my family. To be honest I never counted, but we went every year (sometimes twice) until 1993) After that, I didn't return to WDW until 2003(I don't quite know what I was thinking). When I returned with my own family in 2003, I think I realized that I took all of those trips for granted . As soon as I arrived, I immediately caught the bug again. I returned with my family in August of this year and now can't wait to start planning my next trip.

All in all, I'd say it's about 18-20 times all on the property.

I'm now thankful and blessed to have been there so many times.

It's funny, we don't have the money to go next year, but my wife keeps giving me these dirty looks. She thinks I'm just going to book another trip without her knowing. I don't know.... we could probably squeeze one in next year to continue the new streak!

Finally, that's why I love this board. I am surrounded by people that love Disney World as much as I do. We are Disney addicts!

I have been over 100 times, and just arrived home a few hours ago, but I'm lucky we live about 2 1/2 hours away...First trip to the Magic Kingdom was pre-opening in 1971, so far this year I have been in March, May, July, September, November, with plans for the MVMCP next month.

HMM...how many times have I been...I would say probably somewhere between 30-50. I know a wide range but until my mid 20's I was a Floridian. Now my DD (8) has been 8 times and she has never lived in Florida in fact the closest she has lived to Florida is D.C. Plus 2 trips to Disneyland Paris. Trip #9: We will be home from Germany in Dec and will be at CSR for 5 days.

11-10-2004, 08:45 PM
We've been 30+ times. I've lost track. :earsboy:

11-10-2004, 10:10 PM
Not as many as others, but I'm over ten.

11-10-2004, 11:07 PM
got to be over 20 and we now have a home at BCV alot more trip to come.
