    How long are your WDW Vacations?

    With WDW expanding so far beyond what it was in 1971, the days being able to "do it all" in just a couple of days are long gone. However, since money doesn't grow on trees (does it?), and many people have to go to work/school, we can't always stay at WDW as long as we like.

    So, the question and poll is: How you are your WDW vacations?

    When I go with my family, it's usually 7-10 days. But...

    When I went for my 7th Grade Class Trip, it was 5 days and when we went that same year for my sister's basketball competition, it was 11 days.

    Overall, I voted for 7-10 days, but it's still not long enough!

    3-5 days

    My trips are usually about 4 or 5 days at a time. Part of the reason is it is tough to get a week of vacation put together once we add in our travel time, and the other reason is that while I could easily enjoy a week of disney or more at a time, my travelling companions don't agree....

    When we go it about 5-6 days. I have been down for 10 days now that was really fun. A little costly but worth the money.:mickey:

    I've been slowing increasing the number of days each trip - used to be 5-6 nights, then 6-7, now 7-8. If I can work in a second trip, its a short 3 or 4 night long weekend. It's hard to relax on the shorter trips - you just get there and its time to go home, it seems. The longer ones let us get in a water park or DisneyQuest afternoon, some resort dining, and enough pool time to satisfy the kids' inner fish. I'd love to do 10 days some time.

    I'm about 2 or three days at the most. When I get to go to Florida, my main reason is not to see WDW, it's to visit my Gram "E" (that's what we call her). So I'm lucky that I get to squeeze a weekend in when I'm down there.

    I'm hoping in 2006 to get a good 5-7 day trip in.

    from what i've seen and hear, a lot of people go for only 3 or 4 days.

    we won't go unless it's for at least a week.

    7-10 days. It depends on how many vacation days we have and how many DVC points we need. Anything less than a week is too rushed for us.

    We like to go 7-10 days. With four smaller children, we like to take our time and have breaks throughout the vacation. No matter how long we go, it always seems to be too short.

    We are planning a 14-day trip in late November and early December, we'll see if it is long enough.
