How often do you visit Disneyland or WDW?

In relation to Disney Parks but not specific to a single resort

I've been to Disneyland four times and to Walt Disney World twice.

I love going to both but I of course favor Disneyland :) I first went there when I was five.

My boyfriend and I at this point are trying to get to a park once a year. So far so good because we've been to one every year since 2006 :P

I have not been to DL since I was a young child, but have gone to DW regularly for about the last 30 years. We average 2-3 trips per years. The most we have been in a 12 month period was 5 times. My ideal frequency would be about every other month.

Not often enough. My last trip was April of this year to Disney World. Before that was 13 years ago. :( I really wish I could go more often....maybe in the next couple of years. I have never been to Disneyland.

Wow, some of you are so lucky to live close enough to visit as often as you would like!!

We generally go to WDW every 24 months (saying it that way makes it easier to take than saying 'every 2 years'). I have been 5 times since our first trip in 2001 (including a solo trip in 2008 only 5 months after a family trip - while I was in Orlando for business).

Living in Canada, flight costs and the strength of the dollar always impact vacation plans to the US - sometimes positively, often negatively. I would love to go once a year. Maybe someday (when I convince DW to buy DVC).

Let's see, My last trip to Disneyland was back in 1983 (that was my third trip there).

As for WDW, 1987, 1989, 1991 and the every year from 1995 to present (2008) - except for 2000.

Hopefully I will get back to DL someday, especially now that I am a DVC member.
Are we there yet? When can we go back?

I don't know what's worse, the anticipation of going or the withdrawals after getting home.

We attempt to go do DLR at least twice a year - obviously WDW is much further so we have only been there twice - blue

Not often enough...alas, work gets in the way. For some reason they expect to be there more than I am not. I don't understand how they can be so mean.

Never been to Disneyland but would love to go someday. We generally go to WDW every 3 Years or so. Although we would love to go at least once a year! Maybe we will be in the DVC before long!

Our family used to go to WDW every 3 or so years after we first went when I was 9. Lately we've been going every year. With money being what it is these days, we weren't going next year. But the 7 for 4 deal will hopefully change that.

I wish we went more often, but we drive everywhere we visit, and it takes us 2 days just to get to Orlando.

We usually end up going to WDW every four years or so. We're planning to go again next year, if we have the money. I refuse to put the whole thing on the credit card.

Hmmmm.... sporadic was the norm a while back. We went in '97 and '98 and then didn't go back till Nov. 2005. We've been twice this year so I'm guessing, if Christmas there goes well, we'll be going to WDW once a year from now on.

When I lived in Orlando, I probably visited at least a couple times a month, more often if my job schedule would let me. Unfortunatly since I moved away, I usually only get to go once a year- usually in February. Last year I was lucky and I snuck in a short trip in October as well.
