We have had stays ranging from short ones of 5-6 days, to most trips that are 7-9 days, to longer ones of 11-14 days.

I've had a few 4 and 5 night trips and they were never quite enough, so I try for at least a week now. This upcoming trip (25 days away!!) I get to stay for 8 nights, and I'd like to go for longer if possible.
Hi. My name is Elizabeth and I am a metal and enamel artist.

Touring plans are like boyfriends. They’re useful and comforting to have around, and they can often make the difference between the day being a disaster or a success, but you have to be willing to ditch them if they’re not making you happy.

'86: one day at Epcot with family; fall '04:5-day Pop All Hallows/F&WF; Jan/Feb '08: 7-day unintended "farewell to Pop Century" trip. (OMG we bought DVC!!); May '08: 4-day Grand Californian; Nov '08: 4-day F&WF trip to BCV (and a Dream Squad member changed my life); Jan/Feb '10: 5 days @ BWV + 3 days @ AKV club; Dec '10: solstice trip, 3 days AKV Jambo + 3 days BWV; Jan '12: Wow, I'm the first to graduate from my Jewelry Design Program! 4 days BLT, 4 days AKV-CL; Jan '13: 3 days BLT, 4 days AKV-Jambo; Jan '15: 7 days AKV-Jambo

Each year I add another day to our trip.

Last summer was the longest..we stayed 15 days.

That was enough time to do everything..however if we stay that long again we must have 2 bathrooms since I have a teen DD who takes way toooooo long in there beautfying herself!

OK so last trip May/June last year we stayed for two weeks Sat-Sat. We drove and stayed offsite (very close though and only did MK,HS, EP). I STILL didn't want to leave and was pouting a bit so, instead of starting our long drive early in the morning we went to EPCOT and rode some stuff and had popcorn until early afternoon.
Our Family Trips: 05/99-CBR, 06/01 off site, '03 off site, 08/06-CBR, 09/07-POP, 04/08 Disneyland off site, 03/09-POR, 11/09-ASM&BC, 06/10 POP, 11/10 Swan & offsite townhouse, 05-06/11 townhouse, 07/11 Disneyland Paris, 06/12 BC, 10/12 POP

Longest was 14 days, but we went to US/IOA for a few days during that trip as well. Stayed at Disney the entire time though. This time we are going for 12 days. Since we drive, we stay a little longer. I can never get enough though!

Our longest was just last week - 8 days. Previously we had only stayed for 5. 8 was a lot but even then we didn't get to do everything we wanted because our daughter wanted to be at MK so much (and how do you say no to your 2 1/2 year old daughter?)

I'd like to try 10 days, but that might have to wait awhile...
