My kids and I LOVE Disney and would go every year if we could. My husband allows us to go every other year, so we take what we can get.

He thinks that it wouldn't feel as special if we went every year.

We live in the northeast.

Hi, I'm from the UK and myself, hubby and 6 kids go for 3 weeks every year! Although there have been years where we have squeezed in sometimes 2 or even 3 trips! Totally hooked and will continue to visit WDW for decades to come, hopefully! Always stay on site too, soooo lucky!

Also from MD (Balt-Wash area) and also own DVC. We do 2 trips (5-6 days each trip) in a year with APs and then skip the following year (but use our DVC for HH or VB instead).
DVC since 2006
Next trip(s): Nov 3-6 at VWL
Aug 8-14 at BWV and AKV

I am from NC and we tend to go every other year. I would love to squeeze in an extra trip next year though! Hubby is more than happy with every other, though he always has a ball when we go. We also hit the beach on Hiton Head Island every year, and want to try some travel abroad now that the kids are getting a little older.

We live in Ontario. In 2005-2010 we went 2-4x a year when flight prices were dirt cheap and we only had 1 kid. Now it will be more like 1, maybe twice a year.

We are from California. We go about every 4-5 years if possible. Depending on if we have other vacations (or if we are going to WDW) we try to go to Disneyland every 2-3 years.

A Disney trip usually happens about every other year in our house, but Disneyland is sometimes only a short 3 day trip done on the cheap. WDW we really have to save up for because the flights are so expensive.

Disneyland at the Holidays, here we come!

We go every 3 to 4 weeks other than summer time (we avoid the place in the summer. too busy and way too hot). It never loses its magic and it is just as special every time. We live about 2 hours away.
