    I know I feel like I'd like to live there but how often do you feel is just often enough not to get bored with it and look forward to the next one?

    Ideally we would love to go 2-3 times per year. But that just doesn't happen very often.

    Same as John I think. Especially given the distance for us, 2-3 times a year is just right

    I think what's hard for us is we'd like to hit both the halloween party and the christmas party but when we've done that, we've felt it's just a little too close together :/

    :( We're lucky to make it every two years...I'd love to make it more often.

    Well we used to go nearly every weekend, but no longer. Too much else to do, you know? Life has a way of interfering. Now I'd hazard a guess that it's more like once or twice every three months or so. :(

    Except for recently when we've had several opportunities to get there!

    I knew you'd be disappointed with that Tinker :(
    We go once a year but usually for 3 to 4 weeks. I'd love to go more often.

    We went yearly from 2004-2007 and loved it infact going more often made it more enjoyable and less frantic as it didn't matter if some things didn't get done - when you go very infrequently - took me 22 years to go the first time and had no idea IF I'd ever go back I spent the whole time in a mad panic trying to do everything - then I cried when I left :lol: sad sap.

    I think (hope) we have settled into a routine of every other year, that's what our DVC points allow for us, I would love to go more often but I like to go all out when i am there and make each trip special and if we went more often we wouldn't be able to do that.

    Apart from 22 years between visits #1 & #2 :oops:, sort of annually. Some years twice, some years once, some years not at all. As Tink said, life has a way of getting in the way of vacations!

    After my next visit (working on December 2008, but may have to move it back to December 2009), probably every two or three years. As much as I enjoy visiting WDW, the cost has increased astronomically since 2003 and my salary has not. And will not. :sigh;

    i cry just reading about people crying when leaving disney but don't tell anyone because i try to portray a tough exterior :p015: :lol:

    i was 26 when i first went and have been 10 times since but we did a lot of trips when we lived in America- it was around 6 hours door to door.

    Would love to go yearly but it's just not possible. We went in 1990, 1992. Then got married and had 3 children. So we took them in 2003 and 2006. Would love to go next year in keeping with our every third year vein.But i don't think it's likely with DH's job being so up in "tut" air.
