I'm a teacher who takes a week off every other year for a Disney vacation due to cost and crowds. I also talk my sisters into pulling their kids (still elementary aged) out of school to go with us.

In advance of comments my sharing this usually brings...Yes - I have had people (never parents of kids in my classes strangely enough) tell me that I shouldn't be taking off time to go on a trip when I have the summer off. My district gives me 5 days of vacation time a year. I choose to use them on consecutive days every other year.

As long as the family has a good track record for make-up work/studies, I have no problem with them taking vacation time. My students (who I've had for 2 years because I loop) know that I have no problem with family time. I do ask that they notify me in advance as much as possible.
