For those of you who live a distance away, how long is your average trip to the parks? My last was 4 days and didn't seem to be enough.
My longest was 5 full days, but we try to do 3 day trip every other month or so! - sunshinegrl 348.8 #600 1-16-13 8:50PMLike(1)Reply
We are 3 and a 1/2 hours away! And we are definate weekend warriors'! - ZeroLove 14.1 #7699 1-16-13 8:59PMLike(1)Reply
Our longest was 7 days and it was great ! But we normally spend 4 days and we are satisfied with that 😊 - eviljules 1015.0 #153 1-16-13 9:00PMLike(1)Reply
Mine are usually four days, but this trip it will be 5 because I'm spoiled and get to be there for my birthday! You are right though, I wonder what it would be like to live closer...I really don't think there would be a day where I DIDN'T visit the park. - AshleyLynn22 791.2 #198 1-16-13 9:01PMLike(1)Reply
I'm in Sacramento. My daughter and I usually head down every other month and stay 2-3 days. And no, it is never enough!! Very jelly of the the SoCal peeps!!! - oo_de_lally 258.3 #1160 1-16-13 9:29PMLike(1)Reply
is a 90-100 miles away considered a distance away??? :) for my case, weekends is the only time i can go to the park, so the longest one for me is during a Long Weekend (Arrive Saturday Morning - leave Monday afternoon). the regular stay will always be Saturday Morning - Sunday Afternoon - otilegna 1839.3 #71 1-16-13 8:56PMLikeReply
Once when I was younger we stayed there for 5 or 6 days and my parents felt that it was too long so they have gotten me use to going for 2 full days and 2 half days (the days we fly) - MandyPooh 455.0 #413 1-16-13 9:02PMLikeReply
We usually do 5 days and before they got rid of the 6 day hopper we would occasionally do that. - EdLovesAlvena 258.4 #1159 1-16-13 9:04PMLikeReply
I thought 4 days was great when we were there but now I'm realizing, via MW, that we missed soooo much. :( - CheshireCam 197.0 #1911 1-16-13 9:14PMLikeReply
Our average trip is 3 days. With being in NorCal we try to get down on long weekends. - splashmtn 147.9 #2599 1-16-13 9:15PMLikeReply
We live in Utah so we go only once every two years. We usually do 6 days in the park. - Rebecky 218.5 #1632 1-16-13 9:28PMLikeReply
I'm in the bay area and we try usually go for 2 days, but now that we can only do weekends, it's usually a day and a half at most :/ Not nearly enough time, but we go pretty often. - ZeeAlice 617.4 #280 1-16-13 9:35PMLikeReply
We are in las Vegas so it's about 4 to 4 1/2 hours - Plutoin702 12.6 #8246 1-16-13 9:41PMLikeReply

1000 miles away. Trips are usually 3-5 days. I usually go every 2-4 months (at least the last year and a half) - PrincessKristin 780.2 #203 1-16-13 10:03PMLikeReply
We live about three hours away and try to go every month for 2 or 3 days. - DLandDan 198.4 #1896 1-16-13 10:12PMLikeReply
My feet give out long before my desire to be there! Last two and next two trips are 3-4 days. Was there for a week last June, but just 5 days in the park. I would love to go stay for two weeks and go a few days in a row and then relax by the pool and do some shopping. Then back in the parks for a few days and repeat. That would be awesome! - MeridaFan 3429.7 #28 1-16-13 10:18PMLikeReply
I'm from the Bay Area and we normally make it down a couple times a year and stay for 6-7 days. But this year do to my health issues, we haven't been since Leap Day!!! I'm going nuts! Lol. But we are on the 31 day countdown to a 7 day trip!!! WooHoo!!! And it's never long enough... Lol. - hatgal76 405.3 #483 1-16-13 10:28PMLikeReply
We have stayed 6 days with the kids and 4 days for adult trip. - dimplesdanie 1236.7 #111 1-16-13 10:37PMLikeReply
Once a year, my whole family (Grandma, Aunts, cousins etc) goes and we stay for 8 days. I go just about once a month, and I usually stay 3-4 days. I'm from the Bay Area. 😊 - DisneyFanZoe 1106.9 #136 1-16-13 10:45PMLikeReply
I live in melbourne australia, which is a 15 hour flight and we can purchase a 14 day pass which we use every year we go - puddy77 222.8 #1583 1-17-13 12:00AMLikeReply
I live in Canberra Australia and each time that we go we usually do between 3-5 days 😃 - aussiekate 165.3 #2356 1-17-13 12:31AMLikeReply
I'm a 18 hour drive away, so the normal trip was for 6 days. It never seems long enough. - dreaminofdisney 7.2 #11830 1-17-13 1:26AMLikeReply
We are 1,000 miles away. Our first trip was two days, second was four as was the third. 😃But now I try to get it where we get our flight early upon arriving and can squeeze in another half day. If I scrape together enough money, it will be 4 1/2 days in April. Because of work for me and now college for Anna, two times a year is all we seem to fit in. I agree that it's not long enough. I told her we need to move closer! - PeachKay 311.1 #751 1-17-13 5:46AMLikeReply
For the last couple of years we usualy do 11 days at the parks. - hairdog67 258.6 #1156 1-17-13 5:50AMLikeReply
We usually do four and half to five and half. But we also go between 3 and 4 times a year. - PrincessAuroraMomma 515.5 #355 1-17-13 6:56AMLikeReply
We live 3 and 1/2 hours away and when we had APs we would go for 2 days every 6 weeks. It was never long enough but it gave me my Disney fix. Now I live vicariously through pics. Someday I hope to have our passes back but until then keep posting pics please! :) - MissyluvsDisneyland 362.0 #565 1-17-13 7:56AMLikeReply
Live in Hawaii don't get to fly out often so we go for at least 10 days with 3 or 4-day park hopper. Stay around the park; love catching the tram into DTD at night. - kianatony 14.1 #7729 1-17-13 8:11AMLikeReply
We drive 11 hours. Our last trip we flew into Long Beach and visited the park over 7 days. - Murryd 300.5 #813 1-17-13 8:17AMLikeReply
Not to far for my family and I. 2 hours away if my husband drives and 1 1/2 if I drive. ♥ - ILoveDL 58.6 #4143 1-17-13 9:22AMLikeReply
Our longest time was 7 days and we live in AZ (6 hours away) Normally we spend 3 days but back in December it was 4 days so I could spend my birthday there. - MikeyMouse 92.5 #3503 1-17-13 9:26AMLikeReply

We live about 7 1/2 hours away so we like to do a least 3 days!!! And it never seems long enough. - Pinup Princess 169.7 #2275 1-17-13 11:00AMLikeReply
It's about 16 driving hour away for us. We don't get there near enough for me. We usually do 5 days since they got rid of the 6 day pass. Last trip was 3 days, way to short! - neverenoughDL 5.0 #16259 1-17-13 11:20AMLikeReply
We live 18 hours away by car! When we were there two weeks ago, we were only able to stay three days. Four days is good, five days are AWESOME!! - mrstoad 256.1 #1178 1-17-13 11:53AMLikeReply
From my doorstep in southern utah to the tram its about 6 to 6.5 hours depending on traffic! I think we have figured out 4 days is perfect if we have an annual pass if not 5 or 6 would be good. - DlandDude 500.8 #369 1-17-13 11:59AMLikeReply
