    We've been to WDW a fair amount. Not as many as some but not as few as others. We went a lot more before my kid came (odd, huh?)

    We've taken my DD 3 times.

    My wife has been burned out on WDW for awhile now. The last time this past May, her friends invited us and we had a blast with them.

    I fear, though, with her burned out and my DD not a huge fan, that I will have to argue to get another trip. I will say that she is intrigued with Star Wars land and the Star Wars themed hotel but I was hoping to visit again before then...

    Anyone else in a similar boat? I would probably relocate closer and do the AP thing so I could go whenever.

    Oh well...

    It’s easy for at least one person in the family to get burned out by Disney over time.

    Last year we did a trip out west. Started in Phoenix spent some time at the Grand Canyon. Then on to Zion. Then to Vegas, and finally on to Anaheim for a couple days at Disneyland.

    The family got some variety, and I still got some Disney .

    Also, on our California Adventure day, I took the kids for a few hours and we dropped my wife off at the hotel adjacent to the park for a massage package. This was a surprise for her from the kids and I.

    Goal was to make her Disneyland experience a little less hardcore-Disney than mine.

    We also stayed at a great Marriott courtyard across the street which also lowered the total amount of Disney for her (and much less expensive).

    If you can afford it lure her with a split stay. Mention its time to spend a few days at Universal and book like 3 days there (more than enough time) and finish up with 4 or 5 at WDW.
