Due to the long flight we stay at least 10 nights, if we can get the time off work we will do 2 weeks.

Our lonest trip was almost 3 weeks last December, we stayed at 3 resorts and also did a 4 night cruise. However when DH got back to work he was told he couldn't take off any more than 14 days in a row. As we usually need a couple of days to try and get over jet lag looks like we'll be doing 2 weeks from now on

We are up to 16 nights every May/June...and I still feel like it's not enough. Now we've added another week in December, hopefully that will be enough to keep me satisfied. If not, it's time to get a Pied a Terre in Celebration!

We spend $2000 to get there and back, so we see it as a waste to go for less than a week. Our longest so far is 10 full days. We would happily stay longer, but we only get 5 weeks of holidays a year, and have to save some for other trips.

I've never stayed more than a week, but we do frequent short trips.

I will be staying for a week for my honeymoon next December!

Just about every job I get doesn't allow me to stay away more than a week. I'd love to stay for two other wise. I would think even WDW could get boring after too many days though so I don't think I'd go longer than that.

we typically go for about 10 days. I have to say if it was just DH & I, we could go longer, but with the boys...that is about the limit, but who knows.

My longest trip was 3 weeks, when I was about 10-12, but I usually stay about 7-9 days now.

Less that a week for just Disney. Our last trip was 12 nights total, but that wasn't spent all in Disney. I think we had 1 night on the way down, 6 nights at the Dolphin, 3 nights for the RPR, and 2 nights at a relatives house more than an hour away. So, more than a week for our vacation but just under a week for Disney. Our next trip will have 2 nights at hotel in the Disney area, 6 nights on-site, and then 2 nights closer to relatives. The 12 night trip was 1-2 nights too long for middle child based on meltdowns.
