Without a doubt...if we could afford it! DH and I went back of a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip 4 months after the Chrsitmas fmaily vacation. Would have gone again in January!!!

You ever know what next year will bring, so I say take the opportunity if you can afford it! Each trip is a new adventure, making new memories.

We just got back June 19 and I'm kicking around the same possibility, though with a family of 5 our cost is higher. If I could do that rate, I'd absolutely go back!

We have been going through the typical post Disney depression stuff, LOL, and I started poking around at the free dining offers. Well, I came to realize that we could do another trip before our daughter goes back to school, staying at a value, POP to be exact, 8 nights, with dining, for around $1455! I jokingly said to my wife we should book it, and she said, to my astonishment, do what you want!

OK, that sounds great, but I'm wondering, as I sit here with the deal loaded up on my screen, if anyone has done two trips this close together. If I booked the trip, it would be from August 24th or the 25th, through Sept. 1st or 2nd. (Basically 9 days, 8 nights again). I noticed, when trying to book, the hotel becomes available, then unavailable for certain periods of time, so I'm assuming people are looking, then not booking etc., kind of like me.

With that said, how would you feel about experiencing all the same things, all over again, within such a short period of time? Would it still be fun? Worth the money? Or would you take the 2K you would ultimately spend, and put it towards another vacation next year, possibly staying deluxe? We usually go once per year, and stay at the mods!

Thanks for any thoughts, or comments, and for not calling me insane!!!!
I absolutely would and I HAVE!

I had a fantastic trip to WDW May 30th - June 5th and returned home to discover my parents had booked a trip for us July 31st to Aug 5th PLUS we are going *AGAIN* Sept 24 - Oct 3rd!

By Oct 3rd I will have spent 3 weeks at WDW over the course of 4 months and will have been at WDW 1 day a month for 6 consecutive months (May/June, July/Aug, Sept/Oct).

You aren't alone and you aren't crazy!

Don't worry we just returned less than a month ago and are going in like 2 weeks . Of course I am the only one who wants to go back, but our other big vacation didn't work out so that's probably why my DF said yes . I like to refer to my insanity as an obsession. This is coming from a tween that's the saddest part.

Have yet to do it, but if I ever had the chance to go back to back in one year I would certainly jump at it.

Nope, we wouldn't do it. Traveling is a hassle, stopping the mail, getting off work, getting through the airport mess, etc. I would have a hard time getting excited again so soon, heck I would have a hard time washing all of the clothes and re-packing them so soon. My family would hate it. Nope, it just isn't my idea of fun. I would walk around the parks with a "been there, done that" feeling
Also, I could never board the pets again so soon, I feel so bad leaving them as often as we do now.

Would I do it???? Hmmmmm let me think oh yea I sure would!!.
So far this year I've was in WDW in January, DL in May, WDW in June, going back to WDW in October and then again in December.
Now this is not my normal schedule, but I really wanted to treat myself for my 55th B-Day in January. In May I used my Developer points from purchasing DVC, for Disneyland, I'd never been and this was a great opportunity. In June I took my adult children and my 14 month old grand daughter for her first ever trip, stayed at my home resort, AKV. I had booked my trip for December (my favorite time to go) when my brother asked me to go along with him and his family in October, staying at the Allstar sport and taking advantage of free dining. He's paying for my room so I could not turn it down. He likes me to be his tour guide.
Go for it and have a great time

We had trips planned for Jan and May of this year, and then I threw in a trip (sans DH and kids!) in March! I knew I had been to WDW a lot this year when I recognized CM's at Aloha Isle and Peter Pan's Flight!

Do CM's stay at the same ride(s) like I know some who were at IASW and PPF and they rotated in between both so will they be there next time I go? I was there in June.

We're going back to back months!

Well -- we're going in late September for a long weekend (Wed night-Sunday afternoon) with my folks, staying at POP. Then we go back in late October, driving a RV down, staying at Fort Wilderness, doing trick or treating, DH's 40th birthday, etc.! We're planning on going to MNSSHP on both trips (already got the October tix for the 27th!).
THEN -- just DH and I will be going back in January for a long weekend and I am running the Goofy Challenge! AND we've contemplated taking the kids over their Spring Break (I know -- crowded time but we'll have AP's, so . . . )

So I say go for it, if you can afford it, you never know what life will bring, and I prefer to make memories!
