A week is good for us. We have gone 10 days before and at that point I start to miss my own bed and we get burnt out on doing the parks.

We stay 5 nights usually - enough for a park a day and then an extra. Would love to stay longer but there are so many other places we also want to go - I hate blowing all our vacation on one place a year. Would rather travel more often and break up the monotony of work!

Mostly done 8 or 9 nights...We did do an 11 nighter last August at BWV which was fabulous.... There's definitely no burn out when u go at a leisurely pace. Gotta remember to enjoy the resort days as well as the park days...too. This goes hand in hand with all the activities that they have at the resorts which makes for a lot of fun for the kiddos...Old n young.LoL.

We jus completed an 8 night 9 day trip to AKV which was amazing but wished I had a few days more...

Wow I didn't realize how long people stay at WDW! That's pretty cool. I think the longest we've ever stayed is 5 nights. Now that we've relocated to NC from IL, we can drive, so it's a little easier on the wallet without needing flights. But even then - a trip to WDW sucks up our vacation budget in a hurry!

I honestly think I'd go nuts staying in a hotel for 10-14+ days. Plus, we have geriatric pets that we're uncomfortable boarding for long periods of time.

Luckily, we live under two hours away, so we go multiple times per year for just two or three nights at a time.

8 nights at Disney and 2 nights at Universal is just about the perfect trip for us.
We did 13nights all at Disney one year and were really ready to go home at the end.

In the past we have done 4-10 nights. Our last 2 visits we stayed 5 nights/6days which is the perfect balance for us as we prefer to stay Deluxe plus we spend the night before our flight out at a hotel near the airport and the night of our return flight also at the same hotel which makes for a much more overall relaxing trip making our actual away time 7nights.

Our last trip was only five nights, which was a bit too short for me. Debating whether to make the next trip seven nights or just six. DH thinks six, and I'm pushing for seven. I think having two extra days to spend at the resorts would be heaven.

1st time, 1 day, last year 2nd time, 8 nights, this September 3rd time, 13 nights. When we went last summer the kids(4 kids 8 and under) were begging for more pool and resort time or shopping time. So we are planning to get a 7 or 8 day pass(last time we got an 8 day and only went to the parks for a couple of hours for 3 of the days) this time, basically 2 days on 1 day off. As well we are renting a van this time to make it more convenient for going when and where we want as we found we spent hours waiting for buses, travelling on them, etc. As well with the free dining the extra days are dirt cheap. $250 a night for 7 people(3 adults) for food and hotel is awesome.

Usually 5 or 6 nights, but we've gone longer (longest was 12 nights I think). All depends on bank accounts and work/school schedules. 8 days til our trip May 8th-13th!
