I think our limit is about 4 or 5 days... we are definitely the oddballs on this one.

This year we've been a little nuts, because it had been so long since we were able to go to WDW. We've done the long weekend (4D/3N and 3D/2N) stays in January, March, April, two in May, and coming up in August and October! DH has said "that's it" for the year, but I KNOW I can convince him to do at least one more stay - especially for Christmastime!!!

He wants to do less-frequent trips next year and have longer stays at Deluxe resorts, and I definitely think he has a valid point. It'll be really nice to do that - I suggested 5-day stays 4 times a year - maybe January, April, July and October? We will still do day trips, but we love staying on-site!

Anything longer than 5 days will probably lead to insanity for us! I'm pretty jealous of everyone who gets to stay for a week or more, though! I, personally, never get tired of being there!

Doing nine days in August did five days last October and can't wait... Now will have time to relax and enjoy each park and have a pool day or two and still pop over to a park in the evening.... Actually have plans to move to Orlando in about three years!!!!

Honestly, these days, 10 days is too short for me I am spoiled by our 12 - 13 day trips. Anything shorter feels too rushed

We went for 8 days back in March and it was very hard to say good-bye after such a short stay.

5-6 days is enough for us. We start missing the bay area, the weather, our friends, family, food (believe it or not I start going crazy looking for my comfort food after the 4th day). They always say there's no place is like home.

We are booked for 10 days on our upcoming trip. Generally in the past we do 5-7 days. I was a little worried that we would get homesick or bored, but we booked several tours and do plan on some resort time.

Our last trip was 10 nights and it wasn't long enough. I could have stayed and stayed. Our next trip is 8 days/7 nights and I'm trying my hardest to squeeze in 1 more day, if not 2. We are already right up against school restarting and I have a work obligation at the start of the trip that requires me in the office but I'm trying to work a miracle to eek out 1 more day, at least

We did 10 days a few years back and found that to be perfect. We did 7 days last year and could have used a few more days to poke around the parks and enjoy the resort.

We originally had 8 nights scheduled, which would be our longest stay ever. Found a great flight ($700 for 4 people!), and was able to add two additional nights. Got the water park option and am really looking forward to relaxing a little more on this trip.

I have a question: What is the longest stay at WDW you have heard of or taken (this would exclude residents and CM's) for a vacation?

We will be staying nine starting May 18.

Thanks

Our longest is 12 nights and 13 days. It seems long, but when we put it all on paper it really isn't.

Last year 11 nights and had travel days that were ONLY travel = our trip seemed rushed.

We like getting some DISNEY into our travel days.

I like two 5 to 6 day trips a year. I can't be gone from work for long periods of time. However, I do get 6 weeks of vacation so I can do a lot of mini vacations.

We've only done stays of 5 or 6 nights, and usually have things we hadn't gotten to (especially food, lol!). When/if we go back, I would like to try lengthening it to 10 days or so (we lose a day each way to travel as well).
