We usually go for 1-2 weeks but I did go once only for a day. It was spring break; a group of us went to Ft. Lauderdale, from NYC, and we rented a car and drove to MK for the day. We managed to get in everything including a parade and fireworks. We left our hotel very, very early in the morning and got back very, very late- but we were very, very young! We even ran into some other college friends when we were there!
Now- if I were to oh only for 2-3 days, I'd go to MK all day, EPCOT all day and 1/2 day at AK and HS taking advantage of extra magic hours at each park. There wouldn't be much time to sleep and eating would be quick and while moving!
Happy Travels! Maria

I've done several 3/4 day trips and they have been tons of fun.

Each trip had a main "focus" to it. I did MK's 40th birthday, MNSSHP, and F&W as different trips. I always go to MK and EP and try to make it to HS. I do skip AK on the shorter trips.

I've found the short trips to be totally worth it in every way!

End of this month I'm going for a 3 night solo stay at the GF. Just going to spend a few days at the MK and pool.

Our shortest was one night at POR and one day at MK. We drove down (8 hr drive), arrived at POR at 2pm, went to pool, had intended to do dinner at DTD (take the boat from POR) but a thunderstorm rolled in, the boat closed. We decided to stay at POR and have dinner. Next morning woke up and went to MK for the day.

Then drove to our SW resort for the rest of the week. We went to SW an BG.
