Smile 12 nights in one trip, 26 nights in one year

We once where lucky enough to stay 12 nights. Summer of 2008. We did the first 5 at ASM and then switched to POFQ. It was awesome. The first 4 days we hit the parks hard and on the 5th day did some laundry and hung out by the pool. When we checked out the bell boy picked up our bags from the room, we went to a park, and that evening our bags where at POFQ. Then the rest of the week we relaxed, went to the park when we wanted to stayed for as long as we wanted to. Didn't feel like we had to hurry at all. One day we went to Epcot walked in went to La Hacienda for dinner and left after dinner.
Now here is the best part of the story. We booked this trip in November and unknown to us my father-in-law took the entire family for springbreak 2008'
(it was our Christmas present.) That was 7 nights at ASM. Then we went on our trip for 12 night in May/June. My daughter tells my mother that for her birthday present she wants to see santa and that she doesn't remember seeing him at WDW when she was 2 yrs old. And for all of our birthday and Christmas presents that year a 7 day trip over Christmas 2008' to WDW. Again we stayed at ASM. We love that resort. My sister, whos birthday is December 23rd always complained that she hated always getting 1 present for her birthday and Christmas but I have no idea what she's talking about. We all loved getting one BIG present that year.

Longest was 19 nights, whatever year ASMO opened. I remember my mom and I thought it was so stinking cheap, we'd just stay.... and stay we did.

But we usually do 12 nights, anyways - in the fall, and 4 nights in Jan/Feb.

I freaking love WDW.

Ok I am really jealous! Please tell me where I can get a job to earn that kind of $$ (or better yet, hire me!). I have advanced degrees and I am a Disney nut which must qualify me for something!

That is your first mistake and was mine for a long time. Create your own job, don't work for someone else!

Our longest trip was 10 days (last August) at CBR. Actually, it started out as 10 days and then ended up 11 days when our flight was cancelled unexpectedly and we were "stuck" at WDW for an extra day. Bummer. The only problem was that the kids missed their first day of school...but nobody complained.

Same! We just did 2 weeks at POP, last year we did 10 days. I think we'll be sticking with 2 weeks now. It's a long way to come for us to do anything shorter then 10 but 14 gives us that little bit extra.

Our longest stay was 3 weeks.
On average we stay for 2 weeks. Being from the UK i would not consider going for less than 2 weeks.

Shortest stay 4 nights; longest stay 7 nights (I think)

Including a trip years ago where we stayed nearby and drove each day; Disney is too expensive for us to stay onsite for more than a week and we won't visit anymore unless we can stay onsite due to DH's mobility issues.

I'd love to rent a big home off-site and invite all my siblings to spend time together one year but unless we pay for their airfare and tickets that's never going to happen! In that situation we would spend two weeks or more in Florida ourselves plus time with the family! Gotta play the lottery!!!
