    First visit: May 1998

    Last visit: May 2009 (yes, far too looooong!)

    Total days: 57 days in Walt Disney World across 5 visits

    I’ve also been bored enough to work out how many visits per park: (the numbers will be higher than my days as we park hop, a lot, atleast once a day!)

    EPCOT: 43
    Magic Kingdom: 32
    Animal Kingdom: 15
    MGM Studios: 19
    Discovery Island: 1
    River Country: 0
    Blizzard Beach: 0
    Typhoon Lagoon: 0
    Disney Quest: 0
    Walt Disney Speedway: 0

    So yeah, my dad is a big EPCOT fan and loved Illuminations, we finished the day there a lot for the fireworks :D

    Discovery Island: 1
    River Country: 0
    Blizzard Beach: 0
    Typhoon Lagoon: 0
    Disney Quest: 0
    Walt Disney Speedway: 0

    Sadly I can’t break my visits down like this, no one really kept enough records for that. I can count some of them like 2 visits to Discovery Island and 1 to River Country but that’s as far as I can go. Overall totals will be submitted soon – thanks for starting the thread! :)

    Here it is! :D

    First visit: March/April 1993
    Most recent visit: January 2020
    Total days at Disney: 293
    Total number of trips: 28

    And if you’re curious to know how that compares to my number of days and trips to Universal:

    First visit: August 1999
    Most recent visit: October 2019
    Total days: 65
    Total trips: 13

    Now I want to get those days up to 365 so I can say I’ve spent one whole year of my life at Disney LOL

    First visit: 1987, don’t remember what month

    Last visit: December 2019

    Conservatively estimate 20 visits. Could be a couple more than that.

    When I first went to WDW, there were only two parks: Magic Kingdom and EPCOT Center. I remember when MGM opened and there were almost no rides there. I still think of Animal Kingdom as the “new” park and it’s 22 now. 😳 I’ve been to Discovery Island many times, as well as River Country. I’ve had some good memories at Disney World. Thanks for starting this thread @cdolan1990 :)

    Yeah, 22 years old! That opened only a month or so previous to my first visit to WDW, that too never really had many rides when it opened too.

    Oh this is all awesome!! I am going to have to dig out all my room keys, old APs etc and try to figure it out! I can def say first visit was 1979, second 1982 (left the day before Epcot opened argh) then my senior trip in 1987 and a day on spring break in 1990! Then I started again in 1995 and it’s been perpetual from there lol! I really need to map this out!
