We used to go for a 7 night stay, but I have found the perfect time for us (that we can afford). 9 nights is great...it gives us 2 whole days in each park and we are able to take our time. Now if someone handed me extra cash and said extend your trip...I would extend it for as long as possible!

I answered 1 week, but it is usually more like 8 - 10 days. I would LOVE the opportunity to stay for 2+ weeks. I wouldn't feel like I have to hit the parks every day!

Our longest stay was 17 nights, but we go for 12-13 nights each summer. Love staying for 2 week each summer, as it makes for a very relaxing trip, with daily midday breaks, lots of swimming and nightly fireworks.

Once in awhile we can't make a summer trip, so we might add a Christmas/NYE trip or a March Break trip, and these vary from 6-9 nights in length.

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.

Longest was 7 days... shortest was 1 day. We usually do 5 days.

I want to try for 10 days on our next trip. We want to venture outside the parks some.
We dance, we kiss, we schmooze, we carry on, we go home happy. What do you say? Come on.

Last trip was 14 days, perfect amount of time. You could go into the parks whenever you wanted. You didn't stress out over taking a 2 hour lunch in a resort near the park. If you wanted to take an afternoon and swim you could since that extra 10th day cost - what $4?

Next trip is a measly 6 days. I am taking a family of first timers so that will be fun. OCD Kim gets to plan the trip! (if only we had deluxe dining or something - then my skills would really shine!)

My dream trip would be to stay 2 weeks The trips do seem to be getting longer, though! We started with 4 nights and have been slowly moving up to 6 nights for next year...I may even be able to squeeze in an extra night

Our normal trip is two weeks (Saturday to Saturday). That lets us take a slower pace when we're at the parks and also spend a few days just lazing around the resort.

Our longest is 8 nights. We find we can do enough to be satisfied, but I would love to do 10 nights and have those 2 extra days to be able to slow our pace down just a touch. I'll work on squeezing them in...just don't tell my DH!!!
