We take longer trips. We went from 4 or 5 day park from open to close trips to being worn out. We did 5 trips is 1 year and then...We didn't go for 2 years (for us this is a long time!) We just were tired. Then we started going back 1 to 2 times a year on 8 - 12 day trips. we only go into the parks on 4 or 5 days and we hang out at the pool EVERYDAY! We also started doing all the other fun things WDW has to offer. Hoop De Doo has become a family favorite. The Pirate cruise, the kids activities. Now we can imagine going without the huge amount of down time we take. We actually feel sorry for those that try and pack all the parks into 4 days!
