    We had to get back home for exams!
    20 hours down. 3 hours sleep. Magic Kingdom from open to close. 20 hours home.
    We were hassled a bit at the border when they asked where we were going and when we would
    be coming back. Going to Florida and coming back tomorrow seemed a bit odd to them!

    Unfortunately, this will only be my third time there. Someday I will move closer, so the airfare won't kill me.

    I voted in the 15 to 25 category because I don't know exactly how many times I have been there. This is whole vacations, not visits to the park. I first went to WDW when I was 2 and have been most of the years since then - a few years missed because of new baby sisters and one year because we did some traveling around the US instead of going to WDW. There was one year, maybe two, where my family had the opportunity to go twice.

    Let's see . . .

    Would you believe I lost count somewhere around 300? However, I have lived in Florida for 32 years, so I have a definite advantage.

    The first 4 years I never stayed overnight and I didn't stay on Disney property for the first six years.

    My parents used to make us get up at "0 dark 30" and we'd get to the MK 30 minutes before it opened. We would stay until it closed (usually Midnight or later) and then make the 2 hour drive home.

    My kids are so spoiled. The first time we took them for a day trip, they whined the whole way home. Now they really appreciate staying on the property!

    I've been there 7 times, with my 8th coming up soon. After getting there almost every year in the 80's, I had a ten year gap from '93-'03. Now it will be twice within 18 months. Talk about feast or famine!

    I'm definitely in the minor leagues when it comes to many of the posters here, but many of my friends, and some of my family, think I'm definitely weird for going back to WDW so much. Not that I care...

    i don't feel bad there are other people with me in the "1 - 3" club!

    i went once when i was 8. my family never had enough money for such a big trip.

    now that i make big bucks working Swedish children for 18 hours a day and paying them $2 a day, i can go more often. just waiting for the little one to get older. i know tons of people that bring babies, but just not my thing.


    for the sensitive members, i was joking about the Swedish children. they are actually from Iceland, i only work them for 15 hours and pay them $5 a day.

    10?

    I guessed 10 but I am not sure. I have gone every year for the last 5 years, once in college, and a few times as a child. I like trying to get in an annual visit if I can! And if I could, I would live there and sleep on the benches at the Cinderella carousel, but then I think those friendly Disney security would take me away....
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    We have actually tried to find employment in the Orlando area just because Disney is there. Unfortunately, we never could both find something we liked. However, I have been there 5 times and we will be adding two more over the next 4 months.
    No matter how hard I try two weeks just can't come any faster.

    We also just bought into the Disney Vacation Club so we should be going twice a year now, I would think.

    If I were to go disney world from my home it would take me four hours to get there. Yet, because of money I have been there only two times. I hope to see more of disney world in the future.

    I have only been twice. My first time was in 1996 and then with my husband in Nov., 2002. I wish I could go more but money is an issue.

    When I lived in wisconsin my family took two vacations to disney world ever year. One for ten days in october and then one in the summer (end of may/june). So I went two times every year of my life up until I moved to Florida for college. However when I turned 16 my parents started traveling more for business (often to fl) so they'd take me along and let me wander around the parks myself. So I went for weekends on many occasions all throughout high school. Also with all the surprise trips, I can count 40 trips just from being in Wisconsin but now that I go to college down here, I tend to go a couple times a month if not every weekend, which I've been doing for the past couple years. Or if I dont have any homework I come over with some friends so I'm sure I've passed the 100 mark. (Sorry if im making anyone jealous!) Although I will never know the real count because... I stopped counting. lol.
