12 days is our longest.
A week has been our usual over the years.
I prefer about 9 days. Don't feel rushed that way.
WDW: 17 trips since 1990
Disneyland: 2 trips, 2003 & 2014
Disney Cruise: 3 cruises since 2006

10 nights on three different occassions. Long enough, yet not long enough...such a predicament. I would really like to spend 2 solid weeks on Disney property and stay 1 week at one resort and the other at a different resort. Still not sure if that would be enough, though! Lol. Maybe we should finally move to Fla. and enjoy the parks at leisure!

my longest stay at a disney resort was 12 nights/13 days.

for the last 2 trips, i have stayed 8 days.

after the motherland stay, i switch over to a darkside hotel for 9 days.

so, i'm in orlando for 21 days on some of my vacations.
that was the longest stay so far.
life is what happens to you on your way to achieving your dreams...........

We usually spend 11 days (I picked two weeks). We both work retail so we can move our work hours around to get a 11 days and only use a weeks worth of vacation. We leave afternoon Friday and return two Mondays later late.

Two days at each park.
One day is usually the halloween party.
A free day, usually DTD and water park.
Our last half day before we head to the airport is spent doing things we missed or want to repeat at one park.

*shortest stay- 3 nights This was a special Mom/DD Mothers Day weekend trip- surprised DD with the vacation. It was great!!

*average stay- 7 nights Most weeklong trips are with DD and DH. We only get him to come along about once every 3-4 years.

* longest stay- 10 nights Another Mom/DD trip, starting MLK weekend and going through the full week and weekend after.

When DH is along (not a big Disney lover), 7 nights is about his limit. DD and I LOVED our 10 night trip. We could probably go for 2 full weeks and not get over-Disneyfied. We will take whatever we can get, though- the 3 day weekend trip was just as wonderful as any longer vacation, because we were together and we were at WDW!

Two Weeks

June 2005: 12 days. 10 park days, two travel days.
We went home still wanting more...

June 2010: 16 days. 10 park days, 4 WP&M days, plus two travel days.
We found this trip to be a bit much for us, it all started to blend together after that long.
