How often do you visit WDW & where are you from?

I'm from Kansas City and we go once a year (sometimes twice if budget allows).

This will be my first trip but hope to make it one of many. I did visit Disneyland once, 50 yrs. ago! That sounds crazy, I was 10 then. I am from Kansas.

We went in 2011 and leave again this May . We hope to go every 2or 3 years... It's the flying that makes it so expensive for us

We have lived all over the US. Currently live in Maine. We try to do a "Disney" trip every year since we got hooked in 2010. It is hard though with 4 kids. Money goes quick in Disney. We have been to DL in 2010,2011. We went to WDW in 2012. We are going to DL this year in Aug. We also did our first Disney cruise a week ago!

I don't think we will get to the parks next year though. We have a cruise to Alaska planned and I think that trip will take our entire vacation budget. I am sad to miss out on the parks but I am also excited to see Alaska. We have never been there before. Still not going in 2014 will probably be hard!

We started in 11' w/ our kids. We just went back last week. So we plan on every 2-3 years! We goto Myrtle Beach every year we don't do Disney. Lol, we found Disney to be very challenging with a 2 year old!!

We just went for our first time this year. I wish I could talk the hubs into every year. But he has agreed to 2015 It even sounds too far away. I am from Maine...where the temps are finally starting to get warmer!!

2-4 times a year, we live in Illiniois. Our trips are almost always short; 2-4 days. I have never been longer than 5 days, but am hoping to rectify that in Feb 2014. (My BF travels for work a lot so FF miles are our friend.)
Previous Trips to WDW: Offsite (1980, 1996, 1997, 2008); SSR (2005, 2008, 2010, 2011); BWV (2009, 2010, 2011,2012); WLV (2010); AKL-Jambo (2011); AKL-Kidani (2011); BLT (2012) Upcoming: 2013 BWV (2) and AKL-Jambo

Since we have started taking our children, it has been once a year. This October will be their 7th trip. We live just south of Dayton, OH.
