Probably, but they get a lot less annual leave than we do.

They probably go more often and spend less time travelling though so they don't need to spend so many days there in one go.

I wouldnt. Flight is too long and too expensive to have what in effect would be 5 or 6 days there, the first day being too tired to do much and the jet lag once home.

I might do 10 or 11 days minimum if I could find a really cheap flight.

If I was desperate for a Disney fix and only had a week I'd go to Disneyland Paris. It's closer, no jet lag etc. I'm a solo visitor and went to DLP for a few days in September this year - it cost me a quarter of what my visit to WDW next September is costing me.

We did a week, Disney and universal. It was exhausting bit worth it cos it was only 500 each for package at all stars direct flohjts with virgin (2008!) Would have been rude not to go!

We did a week in 2015 over thanksgiving and hammered the shopping.

We are doing a week again in Feb 2018 no kids, and again we will hammer then shopping and take in some sights we never do when we have the families with us.

We did celebration for the first time in 2015, snow, little walks, we did the altamonte mall also for the first time, found the clearance outlets on the 192.

Plan on much of the same along with some basketball and whatever takes our fancy. With the time difference we start early so 5am visits to walmart are commonplace in the 1 week stay!
