We have APs now so we don't really have to plan, we can just go when whimsy takes us, but we used to do 2-3 a year at our peak. It is my mom's obssession. She's glad we moved down here just so she can come more often, I think

I've been at least 12 times in the past year and am going the next two weekends too! I have an AP and only live about 2.5 hours away.

Living 16 hours away, we have managed 3 times in a calendar year and 4 in a 12 month period. I get a lot of people at work and friends that say "you are going again? Must be nice to afford it" My reply is " I want to afford it, so we budget our money to be able to go".

Between cruises, WDW, and DL its pushing just over 100 times (im 27). It does help my parents are disney nuts and now live in Ft. Myers so each time we go visit them, guess what, day trip to a park! We live in AK now so we're down to 3 trips a year (3 weeks vacation) give or take. 2 Cruises + 3 nts at WDW in April/May then a trip to DL for D23 Expo in August, then another cruise out of Miami in October. When we lived in TX we had annual passes. We dont have kids so I would watch for cheap airfare. I worked 4 ten hour days and with the AP discount, out of season, we could get All Star for 40ish a night. Watch airfare like a hawk, grab it when it was $150ish and we could do a long weekend at WDW for under $500 including food. We did that every other month for about 3 years. I would love to live in Orlando but sadly work wont let me transfer there. Oh well!

Dont worry, my friends all think im nuts for going alot!

I've been four times. My first time was in May 2011. I went back 6 months later, then 6 months after that and 6 months after that. Now I'm having to wait a whole 14 months before I go back and it's KILLING ME! I got awesome deals on the first 4 trips though and I find now when I want to go with my whole family, it's costing us a TON.

I'm also from Wisconsin which makes it quite the hike to get there
