Once and with us. We (parents) have no interest in doing it again. It was a fabulous experience as our kids were the perfect age but there are just too many places to see in the world.

I went twice to DW and once to DL when I was young.

dd has been to Disneyland many times, with us, with school or day camp.
Now since we're AP holders, we go probably 1-2x a month except when we're blocked out (no premium passes here ). I enjoy Disneyland and can honestly say that I have been going there for almost 50 years.

Both my son and I have been many times, but we live about a 20-minute drive away. I have given him yearly passes for Christmas once he got his driver's license because he liked to take a date to Disney.

Growing up in Southern California, we became host to all out of the area family that wanted to see Disneyland. They would stay at our house instead of a hotel to save money. I was frequently chosen as the tour guide for them because I loved going and my sisters really didn't. Even after I was married, my mom still called on me to go with all the relatives. I didn't even mind being the one to sit with the strollers and hold the shopping bags. Just people watching was fun for me.

I haven't been for about ten years now. I would still love to go. I could offer up my guest room for adults and couches and cots for the kids in my living room if someone wants to go and can't afford the huge hotel fees. I even have a pool!

We took all three kids to Disneyland once. Oldest dd went to Disneyworld once with her high school singing group. We live in KS, so its a major distance to either park.

Well over a hundred. We live about 25 min. away and she's had a pass since she was 3. She is now 21. The college she attends is about 7 minutes away so most of the students have passes. In her freshman and sophomore years she went at least once a week. In her junior year she really didn't have time and said she really missed it.

My children have never gone. They are almost 9 and 12.

I went the summer I went into 4th grade.

We've gone to Florida twice and Busch Gardens while we were there, they've gone to Sea World and Legoland, but the kids have never been overly interested in Disney.

I went twice as a child.

My oldest child (11) has been about 15 times, middle child (8) about 9 times and my youngest child (5) has been about 7 times.

My mil lives close so we go when we go visit her.

We are going to DL for the first time this summer.

We love it, my kids love it. We do go to other places too, not just Disney.

14yr old son has been 3 times, 7yr old has been once just this last march. I think we'd do it a lot more often if airfair wasn't so much.

My three dd's have no interest in going to WDW. We ask them every year and they always choose to go somewhere else.

My dh and I went to WDW before we were married, but only because we won the trip. Free flight, reservations at the Hilton, and free park passes. It was fun, but I don't really understand the hype. I would take my dd's once, but would have no desire to go again after that.

Never, and we don't see the appeal to be honest. If and when we visit the USA we won't be going to Disney or any places like that.

Today, I will be colouring outside the lines.

My two boys have each been to WDW twice. My oldest went when he was 7 for the first time. It was not a good experience because he had an undiagnosed anxiety disorder, which became VERY evident once we were inside the park. We went again as a family five years later with both boys, the younger one would have been about 6, and had a wonderful time. The youngest went on a choir trip in high school and performed in the park. So they have each been twice.

I went to Disneyland as a teenager with my family (we did six weeks cross-country). I remember they still had the A-H tickets for the attractions. We also went to WDW after it opened and stayed in the Fort Wilderness campground. I honeymooned there 28 years ago, as well as taking our kids twice. It's been 14 years since we've been there and are planning to go back, just DH and I, next year.

More times than I can count! And we don't even live near either park! I live in Utah, but we have annual passes to Disneyland and go 3-4 a year. We've been to Disney World 3 times and a Disney cruise once. We LOVE Disney!

Zero. We are going next year with my parents as my mom has never been there and wants to go. If it wasn't for her wanting to go I don't know if we would ever go. I have no desire at all to go. None.

I've never been nor have our kids. My husband has been to Disneyland twice and Disney World once. Someday we would like to go to Florida but have no clue when that will ever occur.

I live about 30 minutes away via freeway from Disneyland.

When I was a kid, my uncle took me to Disneyland twice a year for 3 or 4 years. It was mostly before he got married and twice afterwards. Then I went 3 times while I was in high school with the marching band (once when my dad was a chaperone). Since then, I've been once with out of state relatives (my parents did not go since it was only for 5 or so hours). That same visit with our family, we all went to California Adventures.

My uncle spoiled me rotten. I don't remember most of our trips except for 3: the 1st time I was able to drive my own Autopia car and our two trips after my cousin was born. I do remember many trips to McDonalds that was across the street and one trip back to my Grandmother's house for lunch.

My favorite trip was the day after the Broncos won the Superbowl in San Diego. You would not believe how crowded it was and how many people wore blue/orange. My dad (long time Bronco fan) was a happy pappy.

My kids are 13 and 16 and have never been to Disneyland.
Heck, H is 49 and has never been!

I went with the fam when I was 12 and on my own with friends when I was 17 but have no desire to go back. Many places in Canada and the US I would much rather explore first.

As a kid, I went twice. next month will make my dd12 sixth trip. It was something my parents worked very hard to do for us as kids, and it was a very big deal. For me, its ten uninterrupted days with my dd after a very greuling few months at work (self employed) when I barely get to see her.
