Smile How Long Have You Ever Stayed At Disney?

How many days, weeks, or *gulp*...months?!


If you have stayed for 4 weeks or more, please share this experience achieved by so few DISers!

If your amount of days is closer to a higher amount, go ahead and put that one.

I think our longest trip was eight or nine nights. It's more common for us to stay for only four or five nights.

Okay, it is now mandatory that whoever votes '4 weeks or more' stand up and show themselves!

We usually stay for 7 nights. Our shortest trip was 4 nights and our longest was 9 nights. I would love to stay for a month!

All you have to do to stay for a month is...


Don't eat for about 9 months...

Never drive your car...

Move into the forest...

5 weeks...when i was a kid. parents weren't working so no place to go and at that time fort wilderness was not expensive. Believe it or not you do hit a point of saturation...you can hit a point of too much magic. We now do two weeks each visit and that is (for us) a perfect amount of time. off side note...they made us change sites every two weeks...

I have often wondered how long a visit would be too long for most folks. I think two weeks would be too much for me (because of the staged, commercial, sanitized aspects of the experience, as well as the reliance on restaurants, not to mention the hordes of strangers and frightening prices). But it takes awhile to get to that point. It would be awesome if Disney offered more unscripted experiences, such as a bird watch/walk.

We find that staying 6 days is great, but staying 7 days makes one weak...

When I was in grade school the family would do yearly 10 day trips. As I got older and it became harder to miss school we shortened our trips to long weekends. I would love to do another 10 day trip and be able to take a more relaxed approach.
