    I was just thinking about how much I wanted to go back to wdw, after being there just last april. Then I wondered how often other Canadians go to wdw/florida.

    We seem to go about every 3 or 4 years. But I would love if my hubby would agree to once a year.

    Lots. Although many like us that go every year do not always go to WDW. Depends on what grandkids come. If they have been before. etc. Luv Florida sun and hate snow.

    At least once a year (or two or three times) in a 12 month period. I want to get as many days as possible out of my AP.

    Scratch of course is gonna say a whole lot more!!! :flower1:

    It's silly, we just got back (Dec 31) and I am already looking at the calendar for the next couple of years, trying to figure out when we can go again. At first I thought, how about in 3 years, now I'm thinking, how can I get us there in the next eyar or two. My husband thinks I'm NUTS and doesn't understand why I am not starting to plan our next Caribbean holiday.

    I'm even thinking of buying 10 day MYW non-expiration tickets next time so we can use 5 days next trip and then 5 days the trip after that.

    Am I crazy??

    Well of course this year it will only be three times.

    But that's only because we will be going to DL for our very first time!LOL

    That's one of the reasons I bought into DVC!

    What can I say! It's my HAPPY PLACE!

    As far as we are concerned NO!

    This is normal behaviour!

    That's why we are all here!

    We usually do Christmas/New Years and always August and sneak in another wherever we can!

    Once of twice a year depending on the year. Have to agree with Susan that we have to get our days out of the annual passes.

    At least once a year for the most part. In 2004 we didn't do WDW but did Maui and DL not much of a hardship there.

    This year we have May already booked and are looking at possibly Ocotber again for Food and Wine and MNSSHP.

    If you plan right I really think it can be as affordable as many other type holidays. (ie Carribbean).

    We just took our 4th trip since 2000. I love WDW but once every 18 months is really enough for me. By that time there are new things to do and the old things seem new again.

    For the last several years it's worked out to 2 X's a year, for me. Once every 2 years for DH and I.

    This year however, I think there will only be one trip. Perhaps a trip to Disneyland Paris this summer though, does that count? ;) :)

    We go every other year and go to an AI in the Caribbean inbetween. We love both kinds of vacations. We may go more if it wasn't so expensive to fly there from MB though. I noticed most of the people who go often are in Ont. We're paying around 600.00 a person (through TO, grrr) in Feb, ouch. We used to be able to fly for around 350.00 - 400.00 straight through a few years ago. :(

    It's been 2 to 3 times a year since July 2000, all 4 of us, with just Dh and once by myself.

    In 2004 I went once with Dh and twice with DisneyLisa! :cool1:

    This year, Dh and I are going to Disneyland in July. Really getting excited for that trip!

    I'm also hoping to get to WDW in early December to see all the decorations again. Depends on whether I keep to my budget in July. ;)

    We took our first family trip to Disney in March of last year. We decided then
    that we would try to go back every 2 years. HAH!
    My DH won a $500 Delta Travel voucher and that sealed it for us! :wizard:

    We are now returning in July and this time for 10 days. Sometimes the deal is too good to ignore! :jumping4:

    Last year was our first time as well and we are returning again this March. I think we are hooked on once a year (wish I could swing more!). This time we are going for 15 nights--can't wait!! :cool1:

    Once a year for me, but if finances allowed (via Lotto 6/49 or Super 7)
    I would definately buy into DVC.

    I do own timeshare in Kissimmee and this is usually where I stay .
    This year I am adding 2 days at All Stars Movies to extend the vacation and have the experience of staying on property!!! :cheer2:

    I save airmiles to pay for the flights, I usually have enough to fly every other year and on the alternate years we drive.

    Planning is half the fun.

    We have being doing twice a year for the last 4. We love it there :love:

    Everyone plans a big trip as there one and only but what they don't realize is something reels you in and you leave there wondering how and when you will get back.

    I think with the new package we could afford to go more often from a 2 year wait to each year. I really like the dinning option can't wait to try it
