    Can’t fault you for that. I’m just a glutton for punishment.

    Good morning, runDisney all-stars! I hope you're all having a great weekend and staying warm.

    Today's Sundays are for Disney question: how many times have you been to a Disney park and how many runDisney events have you done?

    I have been to Disney World five times in my life, twice as a kid and three times as an adult. I've never been to another Disney property. My 2017 trip was for marathon weekend and that was my first and only runDisney event so far.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    I’ve been to the Disney parks too many times to count for WDW (easily 150+) and 5 times to Disneyland.

    As far as RunDisney weekends, I think we’ve both done 12 now starting in 2012. I did princess in 2015 which my husband didn’t. He did Marathon 2018 which I didn’t.
    Star Wars Light Side 2015 2016 2017
    Princess 2015, 2016
    Dark Side 2016 2017
    Tower of Terror 2013 (5k) 2014
    Wine and Dine 2015 2016 2017
    Marathon 2018

    Wow!! Do you live nearby?

    I feel lucky to have gone as many times as I have, even if it's a relatively low number. Living in Iowa, it's not easy (read: cheap) to get down to Orlando. When I went for the first time with my wife and (then) two daughters, my wife said we would be one and done. Fortunately, she (a first-timer) fell in love with WDW just like so many of us and that has motivated us to budget and save for two more trips. 2019 will probably be our last "big" family trip to WDW, but I'm still hoping to add more solo trips for marathon weekend.

    I grew up in Florida about 2.5 hours away and we went about every other month. Only went twice a year in college as I was in MA. We then lived in Georgia and a 5 hour drive away and now we live in Naples and a 3 hour drive.

    Sundays are for Disney:

    I visited Disney twice as a kid and took almost 20 years between visiting again, which was for my first rD event the 2012 Marathon Weekend Half. My rD events are all in my signature. 7 Marathon Weekends and one Dark Side Weekend. I went to the parks a few years ago in February with my entire family and I visited the parks last September for an action-packed park-hopping day (Pandora & Food and Wine) and eventually MNSSHP with my niece and nephew, but those are the only times I've visited as an adult outside of rD Weekends. Never been to DL; would like to make it at some point, but not sure when that will happen.

    I've been to WDW at least 20 times, I think. It might be a few less than that, but around in there. I've been to Disneyland twice.
    As for rD events, not too many:
    Wine & Dine 2015 (half of a half and final night race)
    Avengers 2016
    Marathon Weekend 2017 2018
    Disneyland Half 2017

    I'm still deciding about Marathon weekend for 2019.

    I’ve been to Disney World 25+ times probably. It was seemingly the only place my parents ever wanted to go on vacation. We went to Disneyland once during the 1.5 years we lived in CA when I was a kid. I’ve only done one runDisney event, the pseudo Dopey in 2017.

    Sundays are for Disney Answer:
    We have been visiting WDW 2 to 3 times a year since the late 90's so let's say over 50 times. We're BCV owners [since 2002] so that makes it easier. We've seen attractions come and go, some good and some not so good. We just ran our 13th WDW Marathon weekend event last weekend and will be back at it again in 2019. I've been to Disneyland once in 1970 [pre Californian Adventure] and Californian Adventure once in 2004.

    I grew up in L.A. so I have been to Disneyland more times than I can count. I have done one Disneyland rD race - 2017 Light Side. I'll hopefully be back home this summer and sneak in a trip to the Land with my littles then. In my 20's I went to both Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland. I regret not going to Hong Kong when I was there, but it was just about to open and didn't work out. I've been to WDW 13 times and have run 6 race weekends there. W&D weekend will be trip #14 and my 7th race weekend. Then hoping to add in marathon weekend too!

    Twice to WDW in the teenage years with the family. Proposed in 2016 at WDW the same night after running my first marathon (that was a tough day!). Went to DL for this first time over Halloween for MNSSHP. Doing Star Wars in April, cruise in November and planning to sign up for Dopey 2019.

    I grew up in California so most of my Disney trips have been to Disneyland. I am not sure on the exact number, probably around 30 times. In 2009 we moved to Michigan and have been back to Disneyland once and to Disney World 8 times with four of those trips being for Marathon Weekend (2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018). I have also been to Disneyland Paris once.

    WDW - 4 or 5 times. I'm too lazy too count right now l.
    DL - twice, and I need to go back. I haven't been since 2012 and I miss it like crazy. Hopefully this year.
    runDisney - 2 weekends, 3 races - Princess 2015 (5k) and Marathon 2016 (5K/10K). Clearly it's been too long and I need to get back to rD ASAP.

    I’ve been to WDW 11 times. I’ve done WDW marathon weekend 4 times.

    I really need to get to Disneyland and try a different race weekend.

    I feel like wine and dine would be fun. I’ve never gone to WDW in the fall.

    Wine and Dine is my plan this year which is part of the reason I am not 100% on coming back for 2019.
