I usually do 5 nights solo. My husband has a part time internet business that I do all the shipping for and he doesn't like me to be gone longer than that because it gets too far behind. Sometimes I can only be gone for 4 nights depending on what merchandise is expected to arrive.

I'd love to go for 7 nights solo.

Anywhere from 7-12 nights.

However, I start getting burn-out toward the end of a 12 nt trip...

I have done:

11 nights, 10 days with a friend,

14 nights, 10 days WDW, 2 days Universal with a friend,

7 nights, 6 days solo

7 nights, 7 days (trip in a couple of days) again solo.

I live on the west coast so usually the first and last days are travel days.

This time I am taking a red eye so I will have 7 days, 7 nights otherwise it would have been 8 nights, 7 days (saved $350 doing this).

Always 8 or 10 (or more!) days, anything less than that is a waste of my money. It takes me a 9 hour flight to get there and another 9 to get back so those 18 hours better have a lot of days between them.

Six nights seems to be perfect. That leaves 5 park days which is enough for us to do. We also go off-season, so the crowds are low.

I have found that 7 nights is just long enough for me to feel like I had a real vacation without getting to the point of missing my own house and bed. On the 8th day I am ready to come home, and that is a great feeling. This goes for any vacation for me, not just disney.

We go to Disneyland every year and stay 3 to 6 days.

So for this trip (our very first visit to WDW) we are staying for 14 days! We are hoping to make this a relaxing AND exciting trip...especially with our DD3!

six...but we are driving and the night before we arrive we are staying in Daytona Beach, so only an hour the next morning to WDW. This way, even though we dont expect to get into our rooms until later, we can leisurely enjoy the resort and since we are at POFQ we will take to boat to downtown Disney and enjoy lunch and shopping there.
