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   353.4 #773 1-16-13 8:50PM Like(1)  Reply
We are 3 and a 1/2 hours away! And we are definate weekend warriors'! - ZeroLove   14.1 #9951 1-16-13 8:59PM Like(1)  Reply
Our longest was 7 days and it was great ! But we normally spend 4 days and we are satisfied with that 😊 - eviljules   1760.1 #119 1-16-13 9:00PM Like(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 #291 1-16-13 9:01PM Like(1)  Reply
Yay! Hope you have an awesome birthday. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:27PM
Thank you so much!😃 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #291 1-16-13 10:29PM
14 days! Got to make the most of it when visiting from New Zealand. - DisneylandKiwi   55.5 #4934 1-16-13 9:17PM Like(1)  Reply
Most definitely! 14 days would be amazing. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:24PM
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   263.6 #1376 1-16-13 9:29PM Like(1)  Reply

The longest was 6 days. - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm   367.6 #725 1-16-13 8:45PM Like  Reply
Was it enough? Dare I ask, were you ready to go home? - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 8:51PM
Lol! No I wanted to stay longer! But they don't offer 6 day tickets anymore! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  367.6 #725 1-16-13 9:35PM
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   2910.2 #61 1-16-13 8:56PM Like  Reply
It's all fair game. We have a 9 hr drive so there's two days of travel involved for us. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 8:58PM
awww, that is no bueno! well, just think about the travel time, there is gold in the end! (and the gold is Disneyland resort!) - otilegna  2910.2 #61 1-16-13 9:24PM
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   480.9 #521 1-16-13 9:02PM Like  Reply
How far away are you? We've considered flying but thought we wouldn't save much time. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:26PM
We like flying when we can because we can get to the airport at 7 and be at the parks by opening but with driving we'd have to leave much earlier... I'm not a big morning person! For me to drive it takes about 6-7 hours depending on stops - MandyPooh  480.9 #521 1-16-13 11:54PM
We usually do 5 days and before they got rid of the 6 day hopper we would occasionally do that. - EdLovesDisneyland   289.6 #1120 1-16-13 9:04PM Like  Reply
I think 6 would be perfect. With a rest day in between. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:25PM
I thought 4 days was great when we were there but now I'm realizing, via MW, that we missed soooo much. :( - CheshireCam   251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:14PM Like  Reply
Our average trip is 3 days. With being in NorCal we try to get down on long weekends. - splashmtn   176.2 #2468 1-16-13 9:15PM Like  Reply
How far north? - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:24PM
We usually stay 4 or5 days, never long enough. - dsnydreamer1955   253.4 #1465 1-16-13 9:23PM Like  Reply

Not to far from us. Still a day of travel unless you're one who can drive through the night and still rock it in the parks that day. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:30PM
Probably 2/3 Days - LennaH   160.8 #2726 1-16-13 9:27PM Like  Reply

We live in Utah so we go only once every two years. We usually do 6 days in the park. - Rebecky   218.6 #1909 1-16-13 9:28PM Like  Reply
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   630.3 #379 1-16-13 9:35PM Like  Reply
At least you're able to go often. We only make it about once a year. Hopefully more this year. - CheshireCam  251.1 #1486 1-16-13 9:42PM
We are in las Vegas so it's about 4 to 4 1/2 hours - Plutoin702   15.7 #9341 1-16-13 9:41PM Like  Reply
Slightly more than four hours. I think when I last went with my bf and his sister in July we made it there in 4hrs. Of course we left at 5am so there wasn't any traffic until we got more into the city. - KermitFan13  658.1 #366 1-16-13 10:14PM
I'm from the bay area, our longest visit was 5 days! we usually just do 3 days :) - Mermaidmommy   32.9 #6272 1-16-13 9:42PM Like  Reply

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   780.8 #298 1-16-13 10:03PM Like  Reply
We live about three hours away and try to go every month for 2 or 3 days. - DLandDan   198.4 #2176 1-16-13 10:12PM Like  Reply
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! - MacaronMerida   4743.9 #39 1-16-13 10:18PM Like  Reply

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   452.2 #574 1-16-13 10:28PM Like  Reply

I'm a 18 hour drive away, so the normal trip was for 6 days. It never seems long enough. - dreaminofdisney   7.2 #15631 1-17-13 1:26AM Like  Reply
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 #983 1-17-13 5:46AM Like  Reply
For the last couple of years we usualy do 11 days at the parks. - hairdog67   289.0 #1126 1-17-13 5:50AM Like  Reply

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 #746 1-17-13 7:56AM Like  Reply
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 #10000 1-17-13 8:11AM Like  Reply

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   544.7 #448 1-17-13 11:59AM Like  Reply
