This year we went for the month of July and used points at AKV. Since there was no money to spend on tickets or lodging we were able to really go nuts and do a lot of meals out.

I think the ability to go to the parks only for the amount of time we want without feeling guilty about wasting a day is amazing. Some days we only stayed an our or 2 some days we spent most of the day.

I do not think we would ever take a trip of less than 3 weeks again...

The longest we have ever stayed is one week. But I would LOVE to stay for at least 10 days if not two weeks some time.

We usually stay 1-3 weeks so I voted 2 weeks. My sister stayed at Ft Wilderness in her motor home once for over a year! That was in 2003-2004, I'm still jealous!

My longest at Disney exclusively is 10 nights. Longest Orlando/Daytona 14 nights.
Under 30 days would be too short. We have not done trip or dining reports.

Our first trip was only 5 days, and that was WAY too short. After that we stayed for 9 or 10 days which was better.

But our last two trips, and our next trip are 14 days. I think that's about perfect for us. It's plenty of time to see everything without being rushed and plenty of time to do nothing too! It's not a vacation to me if I don't get to layout by the pool with a good book and a pina colada. ... not sure how that's going to work out on our December trip!

My average stay is 8 nights. No matter how many nights I go, i always end up thinking "just ONE more night would have been perfect".

I think 10 or 11 days is our longest. Shortest was Wed - Sun...so what, 4 nights?

We are doing 8 nights this next time and then in 2013...going for the gusto with 2 weeks.
